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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.

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.
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.

Did you know that…
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.
