Dancing Horse Farm

On the Products OmegaTri™ and Electro-Ryte™:

“In early July during the very hot, humid days, both of my boys were excessively panting when working and even in their stalls, but without any other symptoms, the cause was initially unclear. A complete veterinarian work up showed both horses to be in excellent physical condition with nothing abnormal about them?? – even their lungs and upper airways were perfectly clear. We assumed the breathing issues must be related to the crazy high allergen and pollen levels, so we opted to treat with a generic anti-histamine, TriHist. Unfortunately, the day after starting it, my horse Taffy, suddenly stopped sweating in addition to panting! After no longer continuing the TriHist, we took the next step which was to draw blood.

Blood tests concluded with one horse showing elevated Eosinophils indicating that his system was under respiratory stress. So while dealing with their respiratory issues, I also decided I wanted to conduct a full evaluation of their feeding program. I decided I wanted to get an independent evaluation conducted by someone not associated with a feed company and asked my vet for a recommendation. Without hesitation, he recommended, Dr. Amy Gill, an equine nutritionist in Lexington, KY. To meet their high performance needs for Omega 3 Fatty acids and to help with general inflammation and lung health, I’ve purchased her (Omega Tri) liquid supplement which she recommends for all horses under heavy workloads. It has been three weeks since beginning to make the recommended changes to their diets.

Amazingly, I saw immediate results which I credit to the introduction of alfalfa hay, which Dr. Gill recommended I add to their diet. They both are now sweating well and are much more energetic and they both seem noticeably stronger with a lot more stamina as well. The electrolyte Dr Gill  formulated and recommended (Electro-Ryte) has increased their water consumption (which is great given that they both had a small sweating issue recently). I feel that the time I spent in researching how to optimize my boys’ nutrition has been very fruitful and I learned a lot along the way.”

Black and white horse with a shiny coat

On the Product OmegaTri™

“Getting the most out of my horse in the last lap of our big show, all due to diet tweaks by Dr. Amy Gill. And nothing beats the OmegaTri™ shine!  No coat spray products were used to get this shine, just a brush, a curry, and OmegaTri™!”

Sue Thompson – California


“We are a Blue Seal, Purina, Poulin, Nutrena, Triple Crown and Southern States dealer in southeast Mass. I have heard Dr. Gill speak before on behalf of Triple Crown and was very impressed with her presentation. We are always eager for the latest info in Equine nutrition.”

On the Product Osteo-Sil™

“I useOsteo-Sil™ in helping with yearlings with sesamoiditis prior to a sale. It has proven to be the best product I have used so far.”

On the Product OmegaTri™

“I rescued a 24 year old thoroughbred mare in December during a freak snow storm here in CA. She had been starving for many years. I knew her when she was young, she was a stunner and decently bred. She was fed OmegaTri™ all the way, never any issues while packing on the pounds, no sickness, no digestive upset, no changes in her feet, just steady improvement all around. Obviously she was getting a fair bit of concentrates early on (once out of the danger zone) but now she gets nothing but hay and her OmegaTri™. I did actually get scale weights on her and her average daily weight gain was 4.7 lbs per day!”

Sue Thompson – California


“I just wanted to tell you that I really love your products.  My trainer does as well. He can’t get over how the horses look and feel.  Thanks for making me and my horses look like rock stars!  My broodmare and foal are doing great!!!! What a turn-around!”

On the product Meta-Librium™:

“Great Stuff. My Dutch Warmblood lost his cresty neck and doughy appearance and has more energy without the nervous tendencies sweet feed brought on”

Kari Browne – California


On the product Algae-to-Omega™:

“Amy helped me fine tune my horses diet and ramp up the performance on my FEI Dressage horse. Great products and support”

Kari Browne – California


On the products Osteo-Sil™, Osteo-Gen™, and OmegaTri™:

“On Dr.Gill’s recommendation, I used the above supplements [Osteo-Sil™, Osteo-Gen™, and OmegaTri™] as a set on my yearling Arab/warmblood cross that was experiencing pain in his hocks. Although he didn’t have any swelling, X-rays showed OCD. Three months later he was pain free and his hock x-rays were completely normal. It’s been 6 months now and he’s still doing great. I would recommend these products and have already done so to the woman who owns my horse’s younger sibling”.

Anne Zahradink – New York


On the product OmegaTri™:

“Now that I am using OmegaTri™, my mare’s coat is shiny and the mane and tail are soft and sleek. I would recommend these products to other horse owners”.

Marianne Schillings – Virginia


On the product Algae-to-Omega™:

“I have had excellent success ordering Algae-to-Omega™ online and this product has improved our stallions’ reproductive system. I have tried other reproductive products in the past that are much more expensive and find Algae-to-Omega™ to be a great product and much more cost effective”.

Jackie Roeser – Idaho


On the product BETA-STIM™:

“Hi Dr. Gill, I just wanted to let you know my experience using BETA-STIM™ – Horse Immune Stimulant. I have three horses on my property. Two years ago all three were diagnosed with Lyme Disease. After the treatment I put one of the horses on BETA-STIM for a period of several months. Eight Months Later I had all three horses retested for Lyme and only the one horse I had given the BETA-STIM to was negative for Lyme-the other two tested positive and required treatment. I then put another horse (in addition to the one that originally got the supplement) on the BETA-STIM. I just got the test results back and the two horses on BETA-STIM tested negative for Lyme and the one horse that never had the supplement tested positive again. I am starting to believe this stuff really works!!! To have a supplement that has a positive impact on the incidence of Lyme Disease here in the northeast (Maine) where the disease is rampant is something close to a miracle. As horse owners and riders we feel completely helpless as we pick dozens of ticks off our horses day after day-and those are just the ones we can see. Thank you for this promising product and I am hoping to have continued success using it.”

Race horse

Mike Stidham is leading trainer at Fair Grounds after three racing weeks, and it’s not just that 10 of his 25 starters have won, but that 20 of them have finished third or better. Pretty much every horse Stidham has saddled at the meeting has at least run to expected form, if not beyond it. Horseplayers savvy enough to jump on the bandwagon from the start have been richly rewarded: Stidham’s $2 win return on investment stands at $3.07 entering this week’s racing.
