Great feed, love the low feed rate with all the extras to keep a performance horse in top competition shape!

The best

I have fed Triple Crown for many years to all my horses. The Perform gold is probably the best feed for a thoroughbred. It keeps their topline in excellent muscle and their weight perfect. It helps their tummy and nervous issues also. Great feed. My 16.1 hand thoroughbred gets 3.5 lbs of the Perform/day and 2 lbs of the Gold Balancer/day. It is split into 3 feedings. He actually could lose a little weight but I rather see him thicker than too too thin. They can lose it quickly. The Balancer Gold combined with TC Golden Flax is soy free which can also help with horses that are itchy in Florida. I always recommend Triple Crown, there is a feed for every need.

Triple Crown Always

I have a OTTB I got that was decent weight wise, but was at risk to founder due to his soles being so thin, but after having him a few weeks on Nutrena Safe Choice Preform he dropped weight very quickly. So we then tried Sentinel Preform for around a month we had to feed him three times a day at 5 lbs per feeding, and at $29 a bag that goes quickly. We then swapped to Purina Ultium Competition and were feeding 11 lbs a day and he looked OK but not amazing. One day after having him 3 months someone recommended TC to me and I have never looked back! He is now on 8 lbs (4 in the AM and 4 in the P) with 8 oz of Triple Crown oil and Equintity and looks AMAZING, luminous coat, strong hooves with thick soles and is 1200 pounds of muscle! All I feed is  TC.  My 35-year-old is on their senior and alfalfa, my two-year-old is on a mix of their senior, alfalfa, and balancer and I get comments on them all the time!

Amazing feed!

Putting my paint gelding has been night and day difference. He went from being cinchy and constantly chomping on the bit, to completely relaxed at all times during our rides. He also has the energy levels I need out of him, but I'm feeding him 2lbs less than I was on his old grain. I'm so happy he comes out of his stall comfortable and willing to work every day now! I also love that this feed made his supplement program a lot cheaper; no additional electrolytes, muscle, stomach, or digestive support anymore! I'm so happy with this feed, I can't say enough good things about it!

Love this for my hard keeper

I'm so happy this feed is available. My endurance gelding is a hard working horse, and a hard keeper on top of that! He's a SUPREMELY picky horse and will only eat so much feed per meal as well. He's just an all-around difficult horse to feed. When the Gold Perform came out, I started offering him a small amount next to his regular meal, and he ate it well from the get-go! He whinnies to me when I go in the feed room and actually licks his bowl clean every meal now, instead of leaving anywhere from a couple handfuls to a pound of feed. He's also drinking way better than he was previously. I think the combination of gastric buffer plus added electrolytes is just what he needed. So grateful for this product
