Helping horses stay active for life starts in youth.

A horse's journey towards lifelong activity and health begins early. It's beneficial to focus on nutritional support for horses and ponies as young as 6 months to help sustain their overall health and assist in mitigating some age-related conditions they may encounter in their later years.

Maintain an Active Lifestyle for Horses, Naturally

Collagen, a critical protein in a horse's body, plays a pivotal role in maintaining structural strength and functionality. Together with calcium, collagen forms a fundamental part of maintaining strong and healthy bones, which are crucial for an active lifestyle. However, it's natural for a horse's collagen production to decrease as it ages.

Collagen: A Key Protein for Your Horse

Comprising about 30% of the total structural proteins in a horse, and 70% to 80% of the skin's protein, collagen is vital. Often described as the "glue" of the body, collagen helps maintain the structure and integrity of muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, the digestive system, blood vessels, and skin. It's essential for a wide range of bodily functions, supporting the overall well-being and activity of horses.

Supporting digestive health may involve enhancing stomach acid and retaining fluids, such as digestive juices, in the gut.
Assist in restoring and maintaining gut health
Supporting immune function and vitality
Aids in supporting detoxification processes by being a precursor amino acid for glutathione
Contributes to building and maintaining healthy muscles and supporting energy production during exercise, associated with the formation of Creatine
Helps support the genetic building blocks, DNA and RNA, which are essential for healthy cellular function
Supports a normal, healthy inflammatory response

Understanding the Role of Collagen in Equine Health

As horses age, their natural production of collagen decreases. This protein is crucial for a horse's health and vitality, impacting various bodily functions. Age-related decline in collagen production is a common phenomenon across animal species and leads to noticeable changes in ageing animals. For horses, this reduction in collagen can affect bone health, potentially leading to issues with mobility and various age-related conditions, including discomfort and possibly autoimmune disorders.

Additionally, as horses get older, their protein intake might not always be sufficient. This can contribute to joint problems such as stiffness, arthritis, and osteoporosis—a condition characterized by reduced bone mineral density. Lower bone mineral density is linked to a higher risk of fractures, often in areas like the spine, shoulders, and hips, and can lead to instability and discomfort.

Fortunately, supplementing a horse's diet with collagen can help counteract these age-related issues. Replenishing collagen in a horse can assist in managing the signs of aging by supporting bone and joint health.

Type I collagen accounts for a significant portion (90%) of a horse's organic bone mass. Bone structure comprises both living and non-living cells within a matrix that forms the skeleton. These cells are in a constant state of renewal and repair, remodeling and forming new bone. Collagen in bones isn't just about structure; it also provides flexibility, tensile strength, and supports joint function and mobility.

As horses age, maintaining bone health becomes increasingly important. The balance between bone resorption and formation might be affected, leading to a net loss of bone tissue. Research indicates that daily collagen intake can stimulate osteoblasts—cells critical for bone formation. These cells play a key role in maintaining healthy bone metabolism, preserving bone strength, and restoring bone mineral density. Thus, incorporating collagen into a horse's diet can be a natural way to support their well-being and activity levels throughout their lives.
