Stress

      Less

Helping Horses Win,

One Scoop At

A Time!

Here Is How StressLess Works:

You’ve seen it:

  Bucking,  Bolting, 

Rearing,  Shying!

    

Why Do Some Horses Act Out?

 

In the beginning, horses had to develop quick responses to avoid danger.  

 

Fear and anxiety produced a surge of the hormone Cortisol, which resulted in the life

saving  “fight or flight” 

response. 

 

Once returned to safety, the Cortisol levels went down,

 and the feelings of fear and anxiety left. 

 

Today's performance horses may be under constant stress because of early training, limited turn out, traveling and competing.

 

This constant stress can result in the overproduction of  Cortisol.   

 

Some horses with this condition remain in a  high state of anxiety and exhibit negative behaviors like:

 

Bucking,   Bolting,   Rearing,  Biting  and  Shying.

 

The main ingredient in our supplement,  Casein,  has been scientifically shown to promote a horse's  ability to cope with this stress.  

 

In 2015, a leading horse magazine, Equus, featured an article titled:

 

"Calming Without Medication" 

"Ten Ways To Reduce A Horse's  Anxiety Without Resorting To Sedatives or Tranquilizers."

 

 

The article said this about our main ingredient, Casein: 

 

“Casein is an all natural supplement that has been proven to provide a calming effect in horses”. 

 

 

There's More Research On How StressLess Promotes 

Calmness:

 

In 2012, noted equine behaviorist,  Dr. Sue M. McDonnell, Ph.D  published her research in the Journal Of Equine Veterinarian Science.

 

Her research article ( based on her  work with wild, feral ponies ) stated the positive results of feeding our main ingredient, alpha-casozepine ( Casein ).

 

Before receiving the supplement, the ponies were graded on the following behaviors: 

 

Introduction to:  

Grooming,  Stabling, 

Haltering,   Leading,  

Tethering,  Social Separation, 

Stall Confinement,   Lifting Feet,   Simulated Girthing,  Transportation,  and Health Care Treatments.

 

She Concluded:   

 

"The results of this blindly conducted study indicates the benefit of adding alpha-casozepine ( Casein ) as a dietary supplement."  

 

"These findings in horses supports a growing body of research and clinical evidence for the calmative, anti-anxiety effects of alpha-casozepine   ( Casein ) in mammals - Sue M. McDonnell, PhD

                                                                               

Our Clients Tell Us That StressLess Works ! 

 

Where Does Casein

Come From?  

 

Casein, the active ingredient in StressLess, is an all natural amino protein that is derived from cow's milk. 

 

   "Casein has been found to have calming, anxiety-relieving property in horses, dogs, cats, and even humans!" 

 

How is Casein Produced? 

 

Casein, found in cow's milk, is isolated without the use of chemicals, through an all natural process called "enzymatic reaction".    

 

This process is similar to the way cottage cheese curds are derived from milk. 

 

StressLess Can Be Fed 

During Training As Well As When Competing!

 

    

StressLess is an all natural supplement that can be fed during training as well as when competing!!    

 

It does not contain any forbidden ingredients! 

 

To prove that it is "Legal and Show Safe"  we had blood & urine tested from a long time user. 

 

These tests were done at the premier lab, LGC Science, in Lexington, Kentucky.

 

This lab has been used for years to process tests from  USEF Sanctioned Horse Shows. 

 

All of these extensive

tests came back 

"negative" proving that

StressLess does not

contain any banned ingredients.
