EQUISTRO® and the competing horse

EQUISTRO® from its very outset more than 30 years ago had, and still has, as its primary goal to provide for the specific needs of the competing horse, a nutritional supplement range of premium quality and security that enables the horse to compete without the worries of "anti-doping" issues.

This is why EQUISTRO® strongly advocates the respect of local and international rules that govern competition and Horse racing.

In spite of the additional security measures, the responsibility linked to feeding of a horse that will compete under official rules remains with the person who administrates the feed.
