Ulcers are a common problem in performance horses, including therapy animals. Equine ulcers are sores that form on the stomach lining, and are created by too much gastric acid. They can be difficult and extremely expensive to cure when using traditional pharmaceutical/medical treatment.
Daily Gold Stress Relief offers an affordable and effective alternative to pricey drugs used to treat stomach ulcers in horses. Daily Gold is simply pure, unrefined montmorillonite (bentonite) clay for horses. It buffers acid, soothes digestive pain, and repairs ulcers naturally--and costs only around $25 a month!
Read how one therapeutic riding center in Massachusetts uses Daily Gold to keep their therapy animals calm, comfortable, and ulcer free.
I'm the equine manager at a nonprofit therapeutic riding facility in Massachusetts. We have 14 horses in our program and about 90 riders a week. I recently put our horses on Redmond Daily Gold (having had previous success with my own personal horse) and have already seen a major difference in all of them. Their coats are shiny, they’re all so relaxed, and their stomachs are doing great, especially our horses with a history of ulcers. We are absolutely loving the Daily Gold Stress Relief!

Worried your performance horse has ulcers? You're not the only horse owner dealing with this pervasive problem. According to this American Association of Equine Practitioners article, up to 90 percent of racehorses and 60 percent of show horses are affected by equine ulcers. It's a staggering number and concerning for horse owners who want to care for their animals and make sure they feel well and perform their best.
That includes horse owner Kara Posch. Her barrel horse Six Bugs Runnin developed gastric ulcers, and when typical pharmaceutical treatment failed, they turned to Redmond Daily Gold Stress Relief for help. Read their story below and check out our infographic to learn the symptoms of ulcers in horses.
I started barrel racing seven years ago. In 2011, I purchased a barrel horse named Six Bugs Runnin – aka Six. From day one Six and I had a connection that I have never had before with another horse.
I started placing on Six shortly after buying him, but I could always tell something wasn’t 100%. I began hauling him hard to get him seasoned, and that's when I became concerned because he would stop eating after two days on the road. He was a very picky eater and hard to keep weight on. He also would bite the air when being cinched.
While loose stool in horses is not an uncommon problem, it may become a dangerous one if not resolved quickly. When horse diarrhea becomes chronic, it can cause weight loss, dehydration in horses, colic, and an overall poor appearance and affect.

Meet Dalia and Her Sweet Mare Star
We rescued our wonderful mare, Star, nearly 13 years ago when she was 12 years old. She was pregnant and suffering from the aftermath of terrible abuse. She’d been through some awful times (and has the scars to prove it), but was still wanting so much to love and trust. Horses are remarkable that way, aren’t they?
Star gave birth to her daughter, Nova, about three months after joining our family, and they both still live in our pasture along with their sidekick, a miniature donkey named Bobby Sue.

Water plays an essential role in every function of a horse's body. But horses can be fussy about water, and certain situations may cause them to stop drinking altogether. A horse refusing water can quickly escalate into a scary situation, and without fluids, a horse will become dangerously dehydrated in just a few days.
Jo Green, a Redmond customer, had a dehydration scare after acquiring a new horse from another state. She used Redmond Rock Crushed to get her horse drinking again. Here's her story.
