- Racehorse Trainer in England
We have used Brandes Formula for 12 months now and have been extremely pleased with the way our horses have run in that time. They have looked well in their coats and performed consistently on the track. It has definitely helped maintain their good health and improved the health of horses that come to us. I believe that this is one of the best products we have ever used for maintaining the well being of horses that are in rigorous training.

The Brandes Formula really helps to keep my horses feeling 100% on long journeys, and I have also noticed a big improvement in their stamina and focus when I have given it to them before the cross country phase. The AfterAce has improved the freedom of movement in all of my horses this year, and has really aided in their recovery from the stresses of eventing - both products are an important part of competition and daily maintenance for my horses.
