After battling for months trying to find a supplement to support my horse recovering from a deep digital flexor tendon injury I found myself involved in the V.I.P. launch with Nettex. Nettex was not a brand I had used before for supplements since I’d always been drawn to brands such as NAF. However, what I have learnt is that just because a brand is popular it doesn’t mean their products work. My horse, Skye, is not only sensitive but an incredibly fussy eater so when I first received V.I.P. So Sound I was unsure whether she would eat it. On having the first tub I was overwhelmed by the packaging, clear feeding instructions, level of ingredients and apple flavouring. From buying Skye she has always been 1/10 lame in her left leg and 2/10 in her right leg so it has been a constant battle to find a supplement that will support her effectively all year round. I cannot put a bad word to this supplement for it has worked wonders for my mare.
Toby has been enjoying schooling and hacking even more since he has been on ‘Nettex Equine V.I.P. So Sound’. He seems more forward and really happy in himself, which is lovely to see. Plus, he really likes the taste of it.
Great product that does exactly what it says it will do. Highly palatable, my horse kept sticking his nose in the container! Horses have stayed sound and healthy coming out of winter and ready to take on the competition season.
Nettex sound ‘keep on moving’ After having my horse Holly on this supplement for over 3/4 months now, I’ve noticed She is a lot more flexible and stronger in her movements. I absolutely Love having her on the Nettex supplements as I know Nettex have supplied the correct nutrients To support her joint growth especially because Holly is a youngster and still growing.
