Equibar Adaptive

Natural bar that aids psycho-physical balance under stressful conditions

By nature, the horse is an animal that is preyed upon, a condition that has led it to develop a particular sensitivity and a certain prudence towards everything that surrounds it. It finds comfort in routines and any change in activity, training or its environment, a visit to a vet or even just a new noise can trigger a stressful situation. Often, that which causes stress is not the fact in itself, but how it is interpreted by the animal. Persistent and excessive stress can compromise the health (including physical) and, consequently, the performance of a horse.

The balanced and completely natural formula of Equibar Adaptive aims to contribute to the normal serenity of the horse, reducing overall stress to the benefit of greater concentration and attention. Basically: less stress, more concentration.

Equibar Adaptive has three key ingredients: Passionflower, Hop plant and Ashwagandha. The anti-stress effect of Passionflower and Hop plant is strengthened by the adaptogenic characteristic of Ashwagandha, which is capable of promoting the natural adaptation mechanisms that the body activates as a reaction to a potentially stressful change or situation.
Equibar Adaptive is appropriate for stressed, anxious, hyperactive, agitated or restless horses, horses that need to regain their normal serenity and concentration. Given its natural composition, Equibar Adaptive can also be used in the event of gastrointestinal disorders.

Equibar Adaptive:

• Helps concentration and attention levels: mind and body focussed on the activity to be carried out, competition or daily training.
• It helps the animal to react to situations of stress and anxiety, without having a sedative effect.
• The medicinal plants used are traditionally associated to moderate spasmolytic and tranquilising effects and, therefore, Equibar Adaptive can act as an adjuvant in the reduction of gastrointestinal spasms with an improvement in overall well-being.

Equibar Adaptive has been tested on horses of different breeds and ages, engaged and not engaged in sporting activities. Below are some of the results obtained:

• Horses with an unmanageable temperament, difficult to bring to a competition. After using Equibar Adaptive, they proved to be more collaborative and concentrated and it was possible to resume competitive activity.
• Horses that exhibited severe nervous tics, which were subsequently reduced during the use of Equibar Adaptive.
• During the course of the tests carried out, Equibar Adaptive proved to be a complementary feed that can also be used in the case of horses experiencing symptoms related to nervousness, pain, loss of appetite and weight loss, which are often associated with situations of gastric discomfort or gastric difficulties.
• Using Equibar Adaptive, highly distracted ponies proved to be more collaborative and concentrated, both on the practice field and in competitions.

Product FAQs

Equibar Adaptive
Equibar Adaptive is a complementary feed that can be used for stressed, anxious, hyperactive, agitated or restless horses, horses that need to regain their normal serenity and concentration. Supplementing the diet with Equibar Adaptive was also found to be of help in horses that experienced situations of malaise linked to symptoms related to the stomach.
Often, that which stresses a horse is not the fact itself, but the horse’s perception of the event. Given that each horse has its own subjectivity, there are factors (mostly related to change) that horses that show anxiety and stress have in common.

They include:
• Overly intensive training or lack of training;
• Participation in, and preparation for, competitions;
• Environment: changing the stall, size and organisation of space, temperature, humidity, noise or even new contexts, for example for competitions;
• Nutrition: nutritional plan changed too frequently;
• Transport: being loaded/unloaded from the trailer, vibrations, bends;
• Loneliness or, conversely, the presence of other horses or other species;
• Health problems: illness, accidents and/or severe pain;
• Treatments, veterinary visits and the work of a farrier;
• Relationship with the rider.
The stressful condition must be ascertained by a veterinarian, who will provide the optimal instructions. However, there are some easily identifiable symptoms that can lead us to assume that our horse is experiencing a stressful situation, for example:

• Change in attitude;
• Aggressive and uncooperative behaviour, refusal of work and orders, kicks and bites;
• Repeated movements, such as continuously walking back and forth, or nervous tics, such as “crib-biting” or “weaving”;
• Muscle stiffness;
• Poor concentration and impaired performance;
• Weight loss and/or loss of appetite;
• Rapid heart rate and breathing, sweating and tremors;
• Health problems, in particular colics, gastritis and ulcers.
Equibar Adaptive can also be administered to horses that are no longer in activity, but at rest. For example, an elderly horse can become stressed in reaction to stimuli that it perceives as excessive compared to its physical condition, which has been weakened by age.
600 g box (21.2 oz) – Around one month
2 kg box (4.41 lb) – Around 3 months
Whenever you wish during the day, according to the specified dosage. Equibar Adaptive can be administered in its entirety as a biscuit or crumbled in the trough together with feed or Wafer Fioc.
On average, Equibar Adaptive takes 3/5 days to act from intake. In the event of a competition or, in any event, of a situation that creates stress for the horse, we recommend commencing administration 5 days beforehand and continuing until the date of the competition. In case of gastrointestinal disorders, we recommend continuous use in line with the instructions of a veterinarian.
The ingredients of Equibar Adaptive have been chosen and dosed to work in synergy and help the animal to react to situations of anxiety and stress and to maintain a state of attention, without having a sedative effect.
Equibar Adaptive is a complementary feed that can be added to a horse’s diet. It does not constitute doping.
The term “Adaptogen” refers to plants, including the Ashwagandha, that are capable of promoting the body’s resistance, through adaptation mechanisms, against excessive stress, whether mental or physical.
The name Adaptive contains the dual value of the bar:
on the one hand, the Adaptogenic component (“Adapt”) helps the horse manage changes and the mental and physical stress that follows; on the other hand, the Active component (“Active”) is an action-benefit, for psycho-physical balance and concentration.
Passionflower, known for its antianxiety and antispasmodic effects, contributes to counteracting states of nervousness, stress, agitation and restlessness, as well as promoting mental well-being. It also contributes to treating gastrointestinal disorders of a nervous origin.

Hop plant has been chosen for its anti-anxiety and anti-stress properties. It is also used to soothe colics.

Ashwagandha (or Withania Somnifera) is known for its adaptogenic properties. It can contribute to the metabolic regulation of the body, in response to stressful situations. Contributes to countering poor levels of concentration.
The Equibar line was designed to naturally support the well-being of horses as complementary feed, which is practical to be used because it is in a snack format. Equibar Mobility, Hemofluid and Adaptive, acting on different aspects of the well-being of horses, can be used in synergy. The different Equibar bars can be given to horses at the same time or in any case during the same day, respecting the recommended dosage for each. They can be fed in their entirety as a biscuit (also as a reward for horses) or crumbled in the manger in combination with feed or Wafer Fioc.

Did you know that…
Crude proteins: are the building blocks of the body and serve to build tissues and muscles.
Raw fats: are a source of energy and must be commensurate with the daily energy needs of animals.
Crude fibre (or raw cellulose): is essential for horses since it promotes chewing and therefore digestion and intestinal motility.
Crude ash: are the inorganic component, i.e. the minerals contained in the ingredients of food. They are called “crude ashes” because, if we incinerate the food, they would be the part that remains (the ash, in fact), while the organic component would be completely burned. For example: Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium.

Recommended use
