My entire yard has been on Brandes Formula for the past year. It is an excellent equine supplement that has helped to keep my horses healthy throughout the season. I would highly recommend Brandes Formula!

I have been taking it myself for some months now and I benefited greatly from it. No more do I suffer with bad colds, etc.
I have also introduced a great number of my race horse clients to Brandes Formula. All have seen the difference. Horses are healthier and therefore recover quicker after racing so can run more often. Brandes Formula is an excellent product that I am happy to endorse.
