- “We have used our Niagara Equissage for over two years for a wide variety of injuries, and noticed improvement, and in some cases remarkable improvement in our rehab program. In one instance, there was a very dramatic reduction in the healing time of a fused hock. In another, the healing of a splaced tuber coxae, i.e. “dropped hip”, was considerably improved. Horses acclimate quickly to the treatment and appear to enjoy it.”

Brandes Formula and AfterAce are incredibly useful and have shown fantastic results. The Brandes Formula gives my horses a real tonic and a huge boost when needed. They are able to cope with competition stresses and long distance traveling much better. The AfterAce has shown great improvement with soundness and joint conditions. I can see a real difference and all my top horses are on it.

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.
