Horse Guard is the most concentrated equine vitamin-mineral supplement on the market today.

Just two ounces a day ensures your horse will get all the critical nutrients typically missing from hay – including 3 mg of organic selenium. Plus, you get the assurance that you are feeding the highest quality ingredients, including chelated minerals, pharmaceutical-grade vitamins, and food-grade carriers.

Vibrant health is the result of many things, nutrition being the cornerstone. Horses, unlike humans, have very limited food sources – most of which are from the local area. Because of this they are much more prone to deficiencies caused by the deficiency in local soils and by the loss of vitamin content with feed storage. A complete vitamin-mineral supplement helps to ensures complete nutrition and provides for all body functions.

Aids in Faster Muscle Recovery – Vitamin E and Organic Selenium helps to speed muscle recovery and increase disease resistance

Promotes Shiny Coats – Biotin and Zinc are building blocks for healthy hair and hooves

Helps Improve Digestion – Probiotics, Prebiotics and Yeast are powerful digestive aids

Promotes Improved Overall Health – Balanced vitamins and trace minerals meet nutritional needs not fulfilled by your horse’s hay

    I am amazed the results with my gelding. He had always been a hard keeper, so i was recommended Horse Guard. He has gained a significant amount of weight and his coat has become shiny and beautiful again. I cant think the staff enough for all the

    This sounds perfect for my old girl, a mini donkey Celina!!! Shes pushing 40 years young!
    How much HG should I feed her? She is 40″ to her withers, maybe 200 (my guess)-250(hubbys guess) pounds? We have all 4 of our donkeys hoofs trimmed regularly. They have white line, seems to go away then boom its back and is worse in the rainy season in Magnolia, Texas,…I use Equine AntiFlam & it helps some….but difficult to give them.
    Really have no idea what she weighs………….she is small! Thank you kindly! :0) Marilyn

      Wow! Celina is getting up there in age! Are her weighing around 200lb you would want to feed her a 1/5 of a scoop of Horse Guard. Thank you for the question.

  3. Joy says:

    Is this okay to be fed with something with little nutritional value like oats or should it be added to a grain or ration balancer with more nutrients?

    • mm Dr. Kelsey J. Nonella Ph.D., P.A.S. says:


      Yes, Horse Guard works great to add to oats and a similar feed. Feeding Horse Guard with oats is a better option than feeding Horse Guard with a ration balancer because then you could possibly be feeding too many vitamins and minerals. Thank you for the question.

    Your site does not give me information on Magenese content. Is our E. WA orchard grass deficient or excess in this element? When I google the info, it shows that your product has anywhere between 176 mg to 700 mgs. Please advise. I have been using Horse Guard for a long time now, but am learning more about the nature of supplementing and over supplementing and it’s impacts.

    • mm Dr. Kelsey J. Nonella Ph.D., P.A.S. says:


      Thank you for the question. Your horse is getting 87.5 mg of manganese per 2 ounce serving of Horse Guard. The analysis are listed on a per pound on the bags and website, per requirements by the FDA. So, products fed at different levels have different mg per pound. I hope this helps. Let me know if I can answer any more questions.

    I love HorseGuard products!

  6. Linda says:

    I have used Horse Guard on all of our horses for years. We have also rescued several over the years. Now we have three very different mustangs. No matter if they are young, old, easy keepers, hard keepers, etc. Horse Guard makes a significant difference on all of them. It takes a couple of months to actually see the difference but it is obvious. Great product, great price.. I consider it a staple at our stable!! -Linda

  15. Jessica says:

    My horse is a solid horse guard horse, and looks it! The farrier loves his “stove pipe” hooves and he’s a very healthy happy boy, nearly always up to no good. But I figure he wouldn’t be that way if he didn’t feel great. I love the HG products and recommend them daily to the customers who come to me for help. My horses have been on Horse Guard since 2005. Thanks! -Jessica

    I have been using Horse Guard for almost three months now and love it! My horse loves it and is very healthy!=] thank you so very much for an awesome product!

  22. Joshua says:

    I just got my first horse in May of last year, he is a paint/QH named whiskey and I got him when he was 3 months old. Ever Since I got him, he has been given Horse Guard to help him grow to his full potential. I really like the product and how healthy he looks compared to other yearlings. I am going to continue to use the product for the rest of his years because I like how he does on it. Here is a picture of us after working on lunging.

  23. Mark says:

    I have a miniature horse that was a rescue; I have been trying to put weight on him. I have used Horse Guards products for hoof health in the past with my horses and saw the improvements so it only makes sense to use Horse Guard for anything health related!

  24. Barbara says:

    After a 30 year break from the horse world I adopted a horse this past March (2012)…I wanted to find a great all around supplement to be sure he maintains his tough hooves, beautiful coat and great health…after speaking with your Rep at our Coastal Farm and Ranch opening here in The Dalles I know that Horse Guard is right for my Buddy!! I love that he loves it! Thanks Horse Guard!

  25. Kristen says:

    I have used Horse Guard for the last 5 years and I cannot say enough good things about it! My horses love it! Their coats are nice and glossy, their feet are hard and strong and they overall just look great on it! I have tried other products in the past but nothing tops it! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! I recommend it to anyone I come across with horses and I am sure my horses would too if they could talk 🙂 Below is a photo of my horse Remington who I got about a year ago and has been on the product since I got him. In this picture he is taking a nap in a field in Prineville after a long day of gathering cattle out of the Ochoco Forest!

  26. Ty says:

    My horse, Phire, has been getting Horse Guard all his life! Keeps him balanced in work and at play!

  27. Ty says:

    I use Horse Guard to keep my horses healthy and fit! The older dun mare used to get pretty ribby in the winter with her fast metabolism. Since we’ve been using HG she stays healthier and looks much better. As she ages she’s also never had a problem with arthritis and she’s my top gaming horse! Picture was taken today of my 3 horses!

  28. Ty says:

    My family first started using Horse Guard years ago, with our very first horse. The difference was quite noticeable after we started using the product… nicer hooves, smooth, shiny coat and even brighter eyes! Horse Guard makes for happy and healthy horses… we will continue to use it for years to come. -Ashley

  29. Ty says:

    I first found out about Horse Guard at the Albany horse expo. I had no idea that we are so low on Selenium in Oregon till I talked to rep about it. I got some and loved the results it showed in my horse! Plus I love that it is made here in Oregon. I love locally produced stuff! -Jean

    “I had a horse that was a rescue and he was so dull, eyes, hair, and flaky hooves. I put him on Horse Guard and he just felt so much better and his appearance was striking. He also put on more muscle because his body had the vitamins and minerals to build healthy muscles, hair and hooves” -Jessica

  31. Ty says:

    Lexi is 17 but you would not think it, if you meet her. Since I’ve been feeding Horse Guard I notice that her weight stays on better… THANKS Horse Guard -Kari

  32. Ty says:

    We were given a horse that had been neglected. She was underweight, had worms and was questionable for Cushings. We started her on Horse Guard in addition to her grain and the difference is amazing! She has put on 100 pounds and shed out. She doesn’t have Cushings. You have an amazing product! Another happy Oregon customer! – Melanie

  33. Ty says:

    My mare has always done amazing on Horse Guard only supplement I will use!

  34. Ty says:

    I am amazed with Horse Guard and want to share my story.
    I breed, train and show AQHA and APHA horses. I raise and sell most of the time. However, somehow two of my daughter’s old show horses found a place in our hearts and have a permanent place on our ranch.Topper is a 21 year old APHA mare. She has been lame or gimpy for many years. I have struggled wondering if I should put her down, which would make our entire family sad. We have owned her for 20 years and she is part of our family. I decided to try a horse supplement “Trifecta” from Horse Guard. It contains the vitamin/mineral formulation, plus a complete hoof and full joint supplement plus MSM and glucosamine…………………….. Thank you! Thank you! for making this miracle feed supplement. Topper is now not only the number one horse in TLC Equine Special Olympics but, being leased to an 11 year old girl taking lessons twice a week and is planning to take her back to the show pen this summer….I have had Topper on “Trifecta” for 6 months. She is sound and out running the young horses on our ranch. Truely Amazing!!!Topper has dropped weight because her age and decrease in appetite and increase of exercise. I started her on “Super Gain” (Horse Guard) two months ago. She has already put the weight back on. I wish I would have taken pictures. You can really see the difference. I highly recommend HORSE GUARD. I put the other older (16 year) AQHA show gelding Bingo on “Trifecta” 6 months ago. He is being leased by a 13 year old girl that rides and rides and then rides some more. Bingo is going strong. They are going to clean up this 2013 show season!
    Sincerely and honestly a happy customer for life.”

  35. Ty says:

    I use Horse Guard Vitamins for my younger horse, Super Gain when needing to add weight or my older horses, but now that my Miniature is starting to get a little age & we are going to more shows, I have moved him on to Trifecta. It has improved our overall performance, with the vitamins, freed up his joints, helped to keep his stomach happy & compliments on his shiny white spots & dappled coat. Thank you for making it easier to feed all 4 supplements in one easy feeding. -Christina

  36. Annette Witzel says:

    Amazing! I rescued a horse who needed a lot of TLC and HorseGuard helped bring him back to good health. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
