Mark Purdon - All Stars Racing
We have been using BetaVet products for seven years. The All Stars racing team in both New Zealand and Australia thrive and succeed on PREPARE. I am behind BetaVet all the way. A knowledgeable, helpful company that provide equine supplements that work.
Throughout La Crique’s last and current preps she was a constant consumer of BetaVet PREPARE. I firmly believe this product played a key role in her ability to maintain appetite and vitality as well as allowing her to cope with the mental pressures of high level racing. As we embark on the next challenges for this campaign…. her Australian debut…..we will be certain to continue to use PREPARE in her lead up to an Australian Group 1. Our stable is also a consumer of your REGUMARE and STEADY STEED products as well
Barry Purdon and Scott Phelan Harness Racing
Since using BetaVet PREPARE daily for our racing team, it has really made a huge difference and you can see the results pretty quickly! The horses look great and stay in top shape during their rigorous racing program. They have the stamina to perform at their best and recover very quickly post race. When traveling, they are eating up well and maintain focus raceday to get the job done!
Stephen Marsh - Marsh Racing
We use REGUMARE on our difficult and temperamental fillies and mares and have noticed a huge difference. They are more settled when they are at the races and more relaxed in and around the stables. And certainly more manageable when they come into season. A great natural alternative to Altreno or Regumate!
I have been using PROTECT on a couple of horses in our team that need a bit of extra joint support and have found it keeps them feeling great and loving their work. It's really good for reducing joint stiffness, discomfort and increasing mobility.
I highly recommend it!
Jack Harrington - Gold Star Racing
I have recently started using PROTECT on my racing team and have noticed some big changes. I was skeptical at first being a powder, but have had no issues with palatability, infact the horses are licking their bowls. I find that PROTECT is great for horses that may have joint wear and tear or have had previous tendon or ligament injuries. My horses are working and racing really well, and have no issues with post race recovery. PROTECT is great for any niggly joint discomfort.
I have been using BetaVet PREPARE now for a number of years and am really happy with the results. My horses have the stamina required for the heavy winter tracks and PREPARE is fabulous for keeping the jumpers in top shape!
Great for horses traveling to races as it keeps them eating and focused on their job!
We have been using BetaVet ECHINACEA on our race team for the past 6 months and are really pleased with the results.
It is great for clearing up any niggly skin conditions as well as boosting immunity and picking them up if they are a bit flat.
They look fabulous, are eating up really well and its great to know that they are healthy from the inside out
BetaVet products are a huge part of our supplement regime and we are extremely pleased with the results we are seeing on our racehorses.
We have recently started using HEMOHALT on a couple and have found this to be a great blood building aid for circulation and pulmonary health.
The horses energy levels have improved and stamina seems to have increased, and they are looking and feeling great!
Kerry Taplin - Taplin Racing
We are always learning in the racing game, trying to get that one special horse and always trying new things.
I’ve been using BetaVet BUILDAGUT for quite a while now and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to keep there horses high gut healthy with its natural prebiotic.
Our team has noticed all horses in work have been cleaning up their feeds
BetaVet SUPERBOOST PASTES are great.
They are fabulous for both leading up to raceday or for post race recovery and keep the horses sharp and focused.
A really good combo of B vitamins and herbs to help maintain and replace energy levels required for racing.
Rhys Mildon - Marsh Racing
We have been using BetaVet products at Marsh Racing for over 3 years.
One of our favourite products is PREPARE.
The versatility of PREPARE sets it apart from its competition.
Whether our horses are travelling between islands, preparing for races or just beginning their career, PREPARE is the perfect product for supporting their overall well-being and keeps them looking fantastic.
I can’t stress enough how much of a difference I find from using PREPARE on my whole racing team! I find it’s a product that covers all bases for each individual athlete in my stable.
I give PREPARE daily to each of my horses. Not only do they possess a healthy glow in their coat but it helps them feel very bright and well in their own body.
I’ve found a huge difference particularly in horses that have been picky eaters and the improvement in their appetite during a hard racing campaign.
Definitely a product I love and wouldn’t go without!
Sales Prep Testimonials
This will be our 5th year running at Breckon Farms that we will be using BetaVet products on our Yearling Draft.
During Prep they all get a daily dose of PREPARE. We find it promotes a healthy glow to their coats, keeps them level headed, and helps to create great muscle tone and top line.
The horses love the taste and take it happily.
We were thrilled with the results attained by Betavet PREPARE during our yearling prep. It aided great coat shine and topline.
PREPARE's stress relief qualities were particularly useful with the extra 14 hours of travel our horses incurred due to the sale postponement.
Importantly, all the horses absolutely love it.
At Berkley Stud we pride ourselves on the health and well-being of our horses and have found the BetaVet range of products to compliment our feeding program extremely well.
The challenges of preparing yearlings for sales and times of stress can have a negative effect on gut health so we use BetaVet GASTRI-TEC to make sure we have these bases covered.
GASTRI-TEC is fabulous for maintaining weight and topline, keeps them on their feed and supports a healthy digestive tract and hindgut.
Our horses love the taste so no issues with palatability which gives it a big thumbs up from us!
Here at Riverrock Farm we take great pride in making sure our horses both look and feel their best, and the way to do that is from the inside out. We have worked with the team at BetaVet for a number of years and can’t speak more highly of their products.
We use a number of their products but our go to is GASTRI-TEC.
We use this to aid those not eating, those we are wanting to better condition or those whose coats are gone off a little and it hasn’t let us down yet!
Our team really thrives on it and it is a product we recommend widely.
Windsor Park Stud
The care and well-being of all our horses is of utmost importance to us at Windsor Park Stud, and since we have been using products in the BetaVet range we have been really impressed.
Digestive health is so important for optimal condition and temperament and we have found BetaVet GASTRI-TEC to be fantastic!
A great product to use on yearlings for sales to help them to handle the demands of prep, keep them on their feed and their coats look amazing!
The results since using BetaVet BUILDABONE on our TB yearling colt have been amazing! The colt showed signs of issues and once X-Rayed, confirmed it was OCD in the stifle, we were advised from a colleague to try BUILDABONE.
After approx 4 months after the diagnosis, box rest and BUILDABONE, further X-Rays showed the OCD had improved dramatically to a clear point that no further veterinary assistance was required and he is now clear to further his racing education. We were also pleasantly surprised to see that he had no muscle wastage during this time and his coat looks super glossy!
It was also interesting to learn that BUILDABONE was also great for gut health and includes a pre-biotic!
I highly recommend BetaVet BUILDABONE.
Just wanted to touch base and give a review on BetaVet ALLER-GEN.
This season has been the worse with pollens ect and my poor pony picked up an irritating cough! I had the vet out which resulted him going on antibiotics but found after the treatment he was still coughing...so I reached out to Kylie and she suggested I put him on the ALLER-GEN and ECHINACEA powder keeping him on the loading dose of ALLER-GEN for 2 weeks.
I noticed a huge difference and it had definitely kept his cough at a minimal level and the 3rd week have noticed no cough at all! Also this time last year he had hives and was very itchy, so far his coat is gleaming with no hives or itchy skin. He is back in full work doing really well.
Thanks so much for your time and advice Kylie, I now have a happy content horse using BetaVet products!
Following months of conventional treatments for ulcers on my dressage horse, the ulcers returned and my previously-quiet mare became so difficult and uncomfortable that she was unrideable.
We were facing the prospect of permanent drug use to keep her happy. Wanting a natural alternative, I tried her on GASTRI-TEC and she hasn’t looked back!
Within a week she was back to her relaxed self. I’ve kept her on it and she is looking the best she’s looked in years. She’s put on condition, her coat is shiny, she’s happy in her work and is easy to have around again.
I’ve since put all my horses on BetaVet products! BetaVet products are the reason I’m able to plan a season of competing again with confidence, knowing that we’re managing Paris’s gastric needs so she’s happy and healthy - I’m so grateful to have my horse back!
Lenny is a 19 year old true original Ngahiwi. A few years ago, after numerous vet visits, and a CT Scan at Massey we were told Lenny should be retired and wouldn’t be long before we might want to look at putting him down. Which quite clearly for us wasn’t an option.
With 2 very good vets, a lot of treatments and some serious amounts of PROTECT Lenny made his way back up to 3* and we even completed our first 4* together this year!
Lenny has lived on PROTECT since we went to Massey University and I believe it is a major contributing factor to helping with his recovery, rehabilitation and maintaining him at top level after he came back
Can I just say how wildly impressed I am with PROTECT?!
My L5 horse has always been a good doer and in pretty good shape, but we recently put him on PROTECT to help ensure his longevity at the higher levels now that he has turned 11 and not only has his suppleness through the steeper lateral work improved but his coat has deepened in colour and his dapples are looking glorious despite only being dragged from the paddock 10 mins before this photo!
I’m so happy with it!
Hayley and Romeo
On May 23rd my horse came in from the paddock lame. After a vet visit we determined he had done some soft tissue damage and needed to be stabled for 3 months.
After a friends recommendation I purchased STEADY NEDDY to help him keep calm and relaxed to give this injury time to heal. Two weeks ago we had another xray and scan to find that the injury was a bit worse than initially thought and it was the Deep Digital Flexor Tendon that he had damaged, and it hadn’t healed as we had hoped so needed more time.
Now with a wedged bar shoe on, we have another 8 weeks in his yard which will bring his total box time to 5 months. I highly rate STEADY NEDDY and accredit this for his relaxed and accepting attitude. I ran out between bottles and found a major difference and raced to grab more.
My next purchase as recommended by the BetaVet team is to try the STEADY STEED which I can use long term for when the time comes to transition back into the paddock. Thanks team for such a great product and keeping us both sane!
Please note: Kava is a banned substance under FEI Rules - USE AT OWN RISK.
My ten year old gelding had stifle surgery with a prognosis of 30% chance of being sound and a recommendation of expensive ongoing drugs.
I chose to run him on FLEXALOT being natural and in my view better for him long term.
6 months on, I am riding him again and he is spritely and looking well.
Due to this I have chosen to run my aging team of hunters on FLEXALOT.
They also feel and look really well.
Paxton Conder - Show Jumper
One of my personal favourites in the BetaVet range is REGUMARE.
My competition mare lives on this product all year round, it settles her in the paddock, balances her hormones and helps keep her focused during her work.
It eliminates her difficult temperament when in season, so I can guarantee I am always going to have a mare that is attentive and competition ready.
BetaVet REGUMARE played a very important role in our success last season and allowed Elsie to perform consistently at the top throughout the series.
I thoroughly recommend this product!
Kelly Tyson - Eventer
We had a TB that we couldn’t get weight on, his coat was dull and he even had some hair loss.
He had ulcers after a long time on bute etc after an injury. We put him on BetaVet BUILDAGUT and rapidly he put on weight, his coat became bright again, and he’s just a much happier, healthier horse!
After that, I not only have the good competition horses on BUILDAGUT, I have all the horses even the yearlings on it.
Kaa-Sandra Chee - Dressage Rider
BetaVet SUPER BOOST is a great product.
It gives my horse a little pick me up on each day at a horse trial.
We had amazing energy throughout our first two-star three-day event and the energy is sustained and not fizzy, so his head is clear to negotiate the dressage and the jumps.
Thanks BetaVet for another fantastic product.
I’ve had wonderful results with STEADY STEED.
My thoroughbred Monti is terrified of fireworks. A couple of weeks ago we felt helpless as he galloped around his paddock in the dark and wouldn’t even come for his feed the next night, and he lives for his hard feed!
So I tried the STEADY STEED paste and what a difference. Monti still looked nervous, but this time stood at the fence line with us for reassurance.
He still looked chilled the next morning.
My lovely MJK True Blue did so well at his first ever outing winning every event entered and also won champion novice saddle hunter and champion open saddle hunter.
We also had STEADY STEED as it was his first outing to keep him settled and it worked a treat!
He looks and feels amazing and I couldn’t be happier!
Would just like to say a massive thumbs up to your COOL N TITE!
Honestly has been one of the only things keeping my ponies in top condition before mounted games Under 17 World Team Championships at Equitana!
Keeping their ligaments and legs all nice and tight, and super relaxing for them when I use it for massages after comps and hard training sessions!
A quick wee appreciation post for the team at BetaVet this time a fortnight ago Quinn was unrideable with a persistent cough and very frustrating head flick.
I decided it was likely due to allergies from the unreal amount of pollen around so I asked for some advice from Ashley Harrington at BetaVet and she sent down a bottle of ALLER-GEN pronto.
Within a week of starting ALLER-GEN his eyes stopped weeping, his head flick disappeared and his cough has all but gone.
He even managed to pick up a win in the CT95 class at the BetaVet Eventing Southland One Day Event this weekend.
So thank you BetaVet for making yet another quality product.
Christine Weal Equestrian
We recently had one of our horses break out in a skin rash and were blown away by how quickly the new ALLER-GEN cleared it up!
We couldn't be happier with the result!
It also seems to have taken the gleam on the coat to the next level.
Another fabulous addition to the BetaVet range!
Just wanted to say I used your ECHINACEA PREMIER last week and it worked wonders for my boy.
He came up with a mild viral cold (not snotty but sneezing a lot), and showed some slight watery blood in his nose so became quite worried.
I then decided to ask a vet nurse about it - the blood was most likely an irritation from constantly sneezing and I was told that if it got any worse or remained the same over that weekend to call the vet.
But after using your product he was back to normal after only 5 days and was amazing in his lesson the following weekend. Back to feeling his best - so thank you!! I’m so glad I now know that I can rely on your product to keep my horses happy and healthy and their immune systems working at their best!
Happy horse = very happy owner!

BetaVet TURMERIC + RED MARINE MINERALS is a brilliant natural all round support for the lesser demands of the off season and the lower level competition and pony club mounts.
It delivers a unique blend of herbs and marine minerals that offer joint support and stress reducing digestive assistance.
BetaVet TURMERIC + RED MARINE MINERALS is a safe, effective low dose powder that all my horses love and do very well on during the low impact stages of training.
I have been using the BetaVet CHASTE BERRY + RED MARINE MINERALS product for 2 months now and I have seen really good results.
I brought this product to try on my mare that is very marish on the ground and to ride.
I noticed a big difference to her behaviour in general since she has been on this product.
She has been a lot calmer in her day to day life and it's easier to get her focused in her rideen work.
I am really happy with the results seen.
Sarah, Jon and the 4 legged team at Hunter Road Stables
This winter we have added the BetaVet ECHINACEA + RED MARINE MINERALS powder to our teams diet and what a difference it has made!
We have not experienced any of the winter sniffles with the team and their coats and skin are in tip top condition with no reactions to clipping or the winter rugging itch!
It really is boosting their immune systems from the inside out and the evidence is proof with just how happy and healthy they are!
BetaVet STEADY STEED is a vital part of my show kit. As a Grade 1 para rider, all of my dressage tests are ridden at walk-only due to my disability. I need my horse to be calm and focused on me, but with enough energy and presence to still move and score well in the arena in front of the judges.
After a shaky start to our first HOY together where Ira was over-excited for my warm up rider, Kylie recommended I try STEADY STEED to regain Ira's brain. I'm pleased to say it worked wonders, and the next day I was able to get in the saddle and have my first, calm warm up ride at the showgrounds. I kept Ira on the maintenance dose and our tests the following two days went well.
We were due in the main oval for our freestyle on the last day which gave my whole team the jitters. That arena is buzzing! It has so much energy and lots of distractions, but Ira was still calm and focused on me, and only flicked a quick ear at the crowd erupting (twice!) during our test from the showjumping clear rounds nextdoor!
I use BetaVet STEADY STEED for all our shows now, and wouldn't be without it! It's a fab product to take the edge off any nerves and help keep their brain, whilst not being sedating or making your horse feel dull. Ira loves the taste which makes it easy to feed it to him too. Thank you so much BetaVet for a fab product
Gina Schick - EVENT STARS
I have been using STEADY STEED on our well known ‘Punky Pony’ for the past year - what a game changer!!!
We went from having an unpredictable, explosive pony, to one who still has his sparkle, but is now rideable, consistent and FUN!!
I have tried various calmers before, but found them to either be ineffective or ‘dull’ the recipient too much to perform, so was sceptical as to whether STEADY STEED would deliver on its promises.
Safe to say it certainly has, and we are creating habitually good behavior in the long term.
I have also used STEADY STEED with success on my ex-racehorse Start Wondering - he was Champion Sprinter in NZ, and won a huge 3 Group 1 races.
With STEADY STEED under his belt, he copes much better with big atmospheres such as returning to the races to lead the field out, competing at Equifest, etc.
This is a great product for helping green or inexperienced horses to cope with new or exciting things, and I credit many of Barts successes to STEADY STEED - it is a must in our grooming kit!
