A Redmond Story:  How Sarah Treated Equine Ulcers in Her Horse

July 14, 2021

Did you know frequent episodes of colic is one sign of equine ulcers? This UC Davis article notes low-grade colic or gas colic often accompanies ulcers in horses. While ulcers may affect any horse at any age,  they occur most frequently in those that perform athletic activities like racing, endurance, or showing.

Sarah Schwartz's show horse had ulcers and monthly bouts of colic, and struggled to maintain his health. After trying multiple supplements and medications, Sarah finally resolved her horse's flareups with Redmond Daily Gold. Keep reading to learn her story and to find out if Daily Gold can help your horse.


Meet Sarah and Her Show Horse Ike 

My horse Ike is an amazing 19-year-old show horse and off-the-track thoroughbred that’s been with me for ten years. Ike’s taught me about horses, about myself, mucked with me through good and bad, and I can't imagine life without him. A few years ago, however, I wasn’t sure he’d still be around today.

Ike was struggling with serious colic and ulcer issues. It seemed monthly he’d slump into another episode. He’s a worrier and internalizes everything—which means his chronic colic and ulcers were a constant worry for me too. I tried supplements, medications. Nothing worked. I felt like a horrible parent and feared every day Ike’s next bout might be the fatal one.

After five months of being colic-free, I pulled the supplement to see what would happen. Ike’s excess gas returned and he acted unsettled and uncomfortable. He went back on Daily Gold and I vowed then he’d stay on it for good.

Three years later, Ike and I still love Daily Gold! It’s worked wonders. We recently competed at the Jockey Club T.I.P. Championships in Kentucky. It was Ike’s first time in that large of a setting, and he was nervous, but showed no colicky behavior. When his ulcers flared slightly after competing, we increased the Daily Gold dose and he’s now returning to normal.

I’ve become a lifelong fan of Redmond Daily Gold—it’s my favorite equine supplement! I’ve talked about it with friends, and my trainer and others in my barn have also used Daily Gold on their own show horses, with great success. My experience with Redmond has been nothing but positive.
