For over 30 years Kentucky Equine Research has continually developed innovative solutions to the health and nutritional challenges inherent in modern equine management. The results of studies conducted at its research farms, as well as advances in equine nutrition from institutions around the world, are applied and thoroughly tested in the creation of KER products.

Modern equine management practices have resulted in horses being exposed to situations vastly different to those in which they evolved, including solitary stall confinement, limited grazing, grain as an energy source, and meal feeding.

These environments and management practices, although convenient to caretakers, are sometimes not optimal for a horse’s health and performance. Nearly 90% of performance horses may suffer from gastric ulcers and some researchers have found that many horses also have colonic ulceration as well which can be a cause of colic and weight loss.

Common problems associated with the equine digestive tract include inappetence, colic, gastric ulcers, hindgut acidosis, excess gas production, and loose manure. Time to get your horse’s health back on track!

Which solution is right for your horse?

EquiShure is a research-proven hindgut buffer brought to you by the experts at KER Targeted Nutrition. In one study, horses on EquiShure maintained a more consistent hindgut pH than nonsupplemented horses when both groups were given sudden access to green pasture. 

RiteTrac, now available in a new 15-kg size, features a two-pronged approach to gastrointestinal health by targeting the stomach with fast-acting antacids and coating agents, and the hindgut with EquiShure. 

Triacton is a triple-action supplement designed to improve bone density and support digestive health in horses. The pelleted supplement contains an array of highly bioavailable minerals and vitamins essential for sound skeletal development and maintenance, as well as optimal function of the gastrointestinal tract.
