Horses have been fed certain ways for a number of years; some great, some not so good!
Offering nutritional consulting for your equine partner to help you understand what's in your horse's feed, and what your spending your money on without ANY affiliation with any feed product companies. I offer an unbiased opinion and am ready to help you feed your horse, like a horse! What sets Stable Mind & Body apart from others is that I`m here to give you diet that will increase your horse's over all well-being.
Your consult fee is NOT based on time. Unlike many others, I don't count the hours it takes me to find the best diet for your horse, as often its rushed (to save money for the client) or its drawn out (to get more money from the client). You can ask me as many questions or give as much feedback as much as you desire, until your comfortable with your horses diet. After all, its YOUR horse! It's hard to understand feed, and you should never feel like your asking TOO much!
This is available to horses within Canada and the United States. I do not offer hay analysis at this time, but we will touch base on hay/forage, as its a foundation of your horses wellbeing.

Gina Smith's Testimonial
I have had several horses tested by gutChek to look more closely at their possible intolerances. Every result has been very helpful and I have been able to make positive differences to my horses' well being. Three horses have had dramatic results that are worth sharing.
One horse's results showed some mild intolerances so we adjusted her diet accordingly. She always had mild flare ups with her eyes, which produced tearing and swelling and subsequent Itchy irritation. After changing her diet we noticed that she stopped getting this condition. We added the initial feed, back into her diet and she had a mild flare up again so we have kept the change in diet and she is doing great!
Another horse was very hard to get weight on, in spite of feeding all the usual weight gain feeds. He was eating very well and in regular work. When his results came back he was listed as highly intolerant to almost all of the feeds we were giving him so we changed his diet accordingly and the change in him was quite dramatic. He began to fill out, gaining weight and muscle everywhere and his energy and ability to use himself easily, changed remarkably. He was definitely a happier horse on normal amounts of feed.
The third horse that also changed dramatically is a two year old youngster that spent a lot of time laying down, rolling, not wanting to get up and looked like colic, although it wasn’t. He was very round, a good weight and growing well. He did look bloated though and seemed to have a lot of gas but was never treated for any kind of colic. After getting his results we made a simple change in his feed which we thought would take several days to take effect. He actually looked much less bloated and was far more comfortable the next day. He has remained comfortable and is not showing any of the previous symptoms.
The testing process is easy to do and with a bit of investigation into the feeds and their contents we have made positive changes with many horses. I highly recommend this process to help maximize the well being of your horses! I have also had my testing done and have made some positive changes in myself.
