“I just wanted to let you know I had a fantastic race this past Saturday! I was 2nd by only a nose at FITS FEI 100 mile race!! We did the 100 in 8:45 which earned us Elite status and qualifies us for the final US team selection trials for WEG!! The trials are April 17-20 in South Carolina. Juniper felt fantastic at the end of the hundred and was awarded “The Best Condition Horse” award by the panel of vets!! I am so thrilled with your supplements!! Juniper never went off her food for the first time ever!! Her joints felt great, she was breathing well and stayed calm!! I can’t thank you enough!”

ELISABETH HALLIDAY-SHARP
“I have been using Choice of Champions products for over a year now and I am impressed with how great my horses look and feel. Our horses travel in Europe and the U.S. and since using U Shield, Super Joint Solution and Lung Aid, they not only travel and compete well, but they recover faster, too. We take the full range of Choice of Champions supplements with us wherever we go as an essential part of our horses’ success!”

Naomi Bancroft
We have been on Choice of Champions products for over nine months and they have made a world of difference in our barn. My horses are healthier and their joints are holding up better with the rigorous cow horse training schedule. Without the joint supplements I don’t think my horses would make it without injections. Thank you Choice of Champions for having such a phenomenal product.”

Elinor and Alexander O’Neal
“Maintaining an event horse’s mental and physical well being is a daunting task at any level. We have been continually impressed with the Choice of Champions supplement line. U-Shield and Superior Joint Solution are high quality supplements that keep the horses in our barn in top form all season long. Lung Aid has been a reliable tool for helping any of our horses with respiratory issues. We would highly recommend the Choice of Champions brand to anyone!”

Bobby and Danica Meyerhoff
“It has been a year and a half since Meyerhoff show horses started using Choice of Champions supplements. And that is exactly what they are CHOICE OF CHAMPIONS! For our Jumpers and Eventers. The U shield noticeably helps keep weight on while being in heavy work. It aids and soothes the digestive track, while increasing the amount of nutrients being able to be absorbed through the stomach. It also helps with soar muscles and relaxing our horses during competition. It’s a must have! The Super Joint is an amazing joint supplement to aid in the health and support of your horse's joints. We feel the difference when are horses are on it. If your horse starts out stiff or gets sore then we highly recommend Super Joint. We also use Lung Aid, for all the stress and traveling to maintain a healthy immune system. We have noticed significantly less illness and other common colds. One specific occasion Lund Aid was the only supplement to help get rid of a bad cough one of the horses developed in Florida last year.”

Ariana Chia
“I am so thankful to have found Choice of Champions. The difference the products have made in my horses is amazing, especially the U-Shield. A few of my horses would drop weight during competitions from stress, or after a long haul, and about two weeks after starting them on U-Shield I noticed a huge decrease in their overall stress and improved digestive health. Now I can’t imagine them being without it! Another favourite product of mine is Easy Does It - a natural and safe product that takes the edge off a nervous or stressed horse. This product has an incredibly calming effect on horses while allowing them to remain alert and focussed. Thank you Allyn for your support and wonderful products that have completely changed my horses for the better!”

Nick Novak
“Our horses love their Choice of Champion Supplements, Dirkie is a bit of a hot horse so the U-Shield really helps settle his stomach and keep his nerves down. I use the U-shield and Super Joint solution on all of my horses to keep them the healthiest and happiest they can be. I love how it is in liquid form so that all of it always get it in their system when they get fed! The Joint Supplement and U Shield is also great for my growing young horses for their changing joints and stressful situations for all of their new experiences.”

Sean & Livia Steffee
“For the past ten years Choice of Champions products have been providing our horses with an edge unmatched by any other supplements on the market. We have won numerous Grand Prix and Hunter Derbies using Super Joint, Ulser Shield and Lung Aid. Championships from WEF to Indoors, and all points in between, have been possible because of the quality of these products. Our horses are happier and more sound because of Choice of Champions. Thank you to Allyn and Allison for always providing the best products and customer service. We are so grateful!”

Kelsey Donahoe
I’ve used Choice of Champions U Shield and Super Joint Solution for the past 6 years. My trainer Jerry Aguilar started using choice of champions supplements about a year ago for “his” horses and notices the huge difference. My now retired horse use to get gas colic every couple month. Once I started using U Shield that all stopped. I swear by this supplement, all of my performance horses are on this, as well as my retired horse. I have not had any digestive issues. Super Joint Solution keeps my horses all feeling well, no stocking up, and sore-free. In addition to those two supplements, I had a horse I bought that did not sweat correctly, immediately I put her on true sweat. I saw results within the first two weeks and she has been sweating properly since. Choice of champions makes great supplements that actually work!

To name a few top credentials for 2016:

  • Ausone was champion in the 3’6” AO hunter 18-35 at tryon in June.
  • Ausone and I won the $2,500 USHJA hunter derby winner one week at fall tryon.
  • Ausone was also 2nd and 4th (two separate weeks) in the $2,500 USHJA hunter derby at fox Lea horse show.
  • Dutch and I were second at fox Lea in the high child/adult jumper classic.
  • Dutch and I won the high adult jumper classic at fall tryon, as well as every high adult jumper class the two weeks we were there. We ended up circuit champion.

Christina Kelly
“I cannot thank Choice of Champions enough! Not only for the tremendous support that they have given me for many years now, but also for continuing to produce these amazing supplements!! U Shield, Super Joint, Lung Aid,Easy Does It and True Sweat. I have had tremendous results in Kentucky these past two weeks in the Grand Prix and I attribute a lot of my successes to the help that these supplements provided my horses!”

Louisa-Marcelle Eadie
“I’ve been using all of Choice of Champions products for over two years. I can strongly recommend these products to everyone who wants their horses to feel their best even my foals use them. My horses have been going on average 3 months longer between joint injections some even up to 6 months which is an incredible achievement so as far as I’m concerned it speaks for itself. My horses are all competing and some are doing alot of traveling since I’ve had them on the U Shield I’ve also saved money on Gastroguard. Weltcup is very afraid of other horses in the warmup. We never go without Easy Does It. Using this product literally changed his competition experience and we went from potentially blowing the whole test as he would be so worried from the warm up to winning the GP!! These products just work plain and simple.”

Amy Atkins
“I wanted to write and thank you for your fantastic supplements. I had a very successful summer competing my 6 year old Arab, mare, Winme Gold. In VT we won the GMHA two day 50 mile ride and in September she was 4th in her first 3day 100 mile ride. Being the youngest horse there she also won high point rookie horse as well as the best overall trail horse! She is young and very talented but like many performance horses she suffers from stomach issues that cause her to stop eating.I’m not sure what I would do without your U Shield. Winme used to stop eating when she was in training but this summer she never went off her feed and maintained a great weight. At competitions I give Winme an ounce in her feed twice a day but I also use it as a “chaser” after I give oral electrolytes. I put 20 to 40cc of the U Shield in a syringe and put it in her mouth. She loves the taste and is always looking for it after I give her electrolytes! Winme gets the Super Joint Solution as well as Lung aid. She is still young but works hard so I know that the Super Joint Solution is supporting her joint mobility, connective tissues and bone health. The Lung Aid is a product that any performance horse can benefit from! When horses are working hard and traveling it’s important to support their immune system. I love that it has Vitamin C that does just that! It also supports respiratory health and oxygen utilization. In endurance recovery time is very important. Winme had incredible recoveries this summer at the 50 mile and 100 mile rides. Once again I can’t thank you enough for your wonderful supplements! I’m looking forward to a successful 2017!”

Sydney Collier Olympic Para-Dressage Athlete
“I wanted to share with you that I have two exciting announcements. The first is that I earned the 2016 USEF High Performance National Championship title earlier this month at the Para Dressage National Championships and Selection Trials event in Grasslake, Michigan at Waterloo Dressage on my trainer Wes Dunham’s horse Western Rose. The second bit of exciting news is that I have been named as one of the four members of the US Para Dressage Team headed to the 2016 Paralympics in Rio on Western Rose! I could not have had this incredible success without Choice of Champions on my team! I have noticed such a difference in both my horses attitude and training since starting them on U Shield. Even with the long travels from New York to Michigan to compete my horses settled in comfortably and got right into training and show mode. I know U Shield is going to be important as we continue working and head into training camp and traveling overseas. I am thrilled to have Choice of Champions on our team!” Thank you so much for your incredible support!

John Borwn – Braveheart Farm
“The focus of our training is on developing young horses to begin their career in dressage, and prepare them to compete at top levels in jumpers. I have several young stallions on the farm that are showing at various levels. I began using U Shield to provide digestive support for my horses that were facing new experiences and increased work, and was really amazed at the results. My young stallions were calm and more focused in their work, both at home and in the show ring. They were able to perform at their best! We also began to use Super Joint Solution when we placed one of our stallions under increased dressage work to prepare him for regionals. His performance was fantastic. His movement off the ground improved, his gaits became more fluid, and he excelled happily at his job. Now that he is returning to his jumping career, his attitude and work ethic are exceptional. I attribute these improvements in results to the excellent products from Choice of Champions!”

Lyn Anderson, Madera, California
“Tuckers Smart Cat was Reserve Champion at the Circly Y Derby at the National Reined Cow Horse Association Celebrations of Champions show in San Angelo, Texas. Five days after that he won the World Championship of the Open Hackamore class winning the Regional, National and World Open Hackamore champion titles. He continues to be a happy, consistent performer with no joint problems thank to your Super Joint Solution and U Shield products.”

Lyn Anderson
“This is an update on Tuckers Smart Cat, the 4 year-old reined cow horse sponsored by Choice of Champions International. Tucker recently was Reserve Champion in the Open Hackamore class at the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity show out of 57 entries. He is also currently in the lead in the National Reined Cow Horse Open Hackamore national standings and has won over $41,000 in 2011. Tucker is a high-powered horse and the U Shield keeps him focused while the Super Joint Solution keeps him sound and happy to do his job. Thanks!”

Terri Skiles
“I have 11 horses. I put 6 on Super Joint Supplement, 6 on the UShield and two on Lung Aid. I am pleased to report that I have seen AMAZING results in all my horses. We just got back from a two day jackpot that gave out 8 saddles in the finals. My daughter won Youth 1D and Open 1D Finals and won two saddles. She beat the World Champion NBHA horse (who by the way had a smoking run) HM Cornerstone ridden by Kebo Almond by .2. In addition, our horse had already made 4 previous runs to Kebo’s 2 before the final run. We had four of our horses clock in the 1D. One of my horses with breathing issues has started to clock once again. Since she had gotten a cold over two years ago, it left her with breathing issues (she would pull through the rib cage at a rest). Since I started her on the Lung Aid, she is clocking once again and I can no longer see her breath. She placed 2nd in the 1D Open Friday night, 1ST 1D Youth on Saturday. We have two bonafide 1D horses on a national level. And 2 that are solid 2D but often run in the 1D if we don’t have rider error. We will be going to the NBHA Triple Crown the 4th of July weekend in Perry GA (usually 900 contestants) and also NBHA Youth World (1500 contestants).”

Elizabeth Goodwin
“Here is photo of me and Bugsy, my 15 year old TB gelding, who is blind in one eye. We are competing at 4th level and we earned all my scores for my USDF Bronze medal together. We are now working towards the Silver medal (we have one of our four required scores). I use Super Joint Solution and the U Shield with him. He has had his hocks injected only twice in his career! Recently our work has included two tempis!”

Chester Weber of Live Oak Combined Driving
“I use Choice of Champions International’s True Sweat on two of my horses that have had sweating issues in the past. We work in tropical conditions at our home farm in Ocala, Florida and True Sweat helps our horses perform at their peak. We also use U Shield for all of the horses during stressful situations like pre-show training, transport, and showing.”

Cathy Newman - Aiken, SC
“I adopted my ex-racehorse “Brave” who came with a floating chip in one of his knees. He would be fine for awhile and then come up lame. My friend, Allyn Maix, suggested I put him on Choice of Champions Super Joint Solution and we haven’t had a problem since. I also have him on U Shield and the combination of these two superior products keep him happy, healthy and sane. I only want the best for “my guy” and I’ve definitely found it with Choice of Champions.”

Dr. Sherri Flax
“My 20+ year-old Hanoverian starting using Super Joint Solution last year. His response has been incredible. Most people--including my vet--think he’s performing like a 10-year-old. His left lead used to “stick” and now his lead changes, right and left, are absolutely perfect. His response has been more dramatic than any of his previous joint injections. This is one horse supplement that really works! As a doctor, I am highly skeptical of most supplements-- but not this one! THANK YOU for a wonderful product!”

Joanna Deal
“One day my instructor told me that my horse, Jack, looked a little stiff in the rear. It was during the winter and a chilly day, even for New Orleans. She asked if I had him on any joint supplement. I told her no. Jack was 19 1/2 at that time and had never been on anything. I checked with the head trainer, Sean Steffee, and he suggested I try Choice of Champions’ Super Joint Solution. I did, and within a few months both my instructor and Sean thought Jack was moving much better. Jack is now 22 and still jumping. We don’t jump anything big, but he loves this activity.”

Livia Steffee
”Katherine Coleman’s jumper, Dartfield, an 8 year old Dutch Warmblood is on Super Joint Solution and U Shield. They were 2nd in High Adult Jumper Classic in Wellington this past January. He has also been started in some bigger classes and has done very well. This shot is from 1.20m jumpers at the Spring Gathering Show in Houston, TX. There were always over 20 entries in those classes and he either won or was top 3 all three weeks.”

Carol Kerstetter
“Bayou (Panama Kissed Bayou) was infected with Patomic Fever this past summer. Thankfully he pulled through with the help of skilled a team at Cornell University. As part of his recovery regiment I began to add U Shield, Lung Aide and Super Joint Solution to his feed. I was amazed at the results we achieved. Since beginning the supplements Bayou has been: Eating Better (he finishes his bucket in this first round, it used to take him about two hours to peck away at his grain) Breathing better He no longer bleeds or needs medication to run Running faster and with more agility Also, he is much more relaxed at the gate (this used to be a huge problem and often required assistance)”

Carol KerstetterNicole Barbour, Cane Creek Farm, Fairfield, NC
From an e-mail we recently received... “I am getting low on the Super Joint Solution. The results I have seen have been amazing. I want to tell two other trainers about it. Please send me another gallon. It has worked so well that I’m almost tempted to use it myself for my back! Thank you!”

Pat Reaume
“Several years ago I started hearing the grind in Top Duns knees when putting on and taking off bell boots. We also started having issues in the Box. There was no doubt this horse was in pain. After a tough time at the WTRC finals where it was all I could do to get him to face and the box issues were terrible, I was at a loss as to what to do. Fortunately work got in the way and I didn’t put him down as I had considered. Several months later I was told about your Super Joint Solution. I am here to tell you that two years have passed and Top Dun is like a new horse. No more grinding, Hocks obviously better as box and facing issues are gone and my son and I won our first rodeo together! Thank you for your great products and all the support you have given us along the way.”

Libbi Albright
“Because your Super Joint Solution was doing such wonders for my 16 year old dressage mare, I used your Easy Does It and U Shield when I weaned my warmblood broodmare and her colt (he was 6.5 months old). The process went very well for all concerned. Baby called minimally for mom for two or three days. Mom called a bit more, but no serious stall kicking or panic. Their habits remained normal and there was a minimum of fuss! And, most happily, the baby retained his calm demeanor throughout, that I treasure in him. I recommend these products highly for helping horses through difficult transitions. I plan to trailer baby down to California within the next month, and I definitely will use the Easy Does It and U Shield until he is settled. Many thanks! Your products are much appreciated!”

Belinda P. Reeves
“We breed, own and race Thoroughbreds in Waller, Texas. We have very hot and humid summers which are extremely hard on horses that do not sweat. We have one broodmare who is a non-sweater and all of her foals have taken on this trait. Our trainer recommended True Sweat as he had received a recommendation from another trainer at the track that had great success with the product. We order True Sweat and are extremely pleased with the results. In fact all of our horses in training from this family line are on True Sweat and are sweating, even under the training and stress of the racetrack. Our trainer is even using it on our other horses that he feels are beginning to show signs of non-sweating. One mare off the track is beginning a new career in Dressage. My dressage trainer was amazed how much she was sweating when I mentioned that she was a non-sweater. I have recommended this product to several of my friends that have horses with sweating issues and they all have had success with the product. This is one product that will be in my barn forever!”

Kelley Oliver
“I have a Thoroughbred gelding who has had anhydrosis for the last seven years. This condition limited his show schedule to fall - spring, as he could not tolerate any summer time hauls. Just to survive the summer he required several fans in his stall and periodic cold hosing. After just one month on True Sweat, we noticed a marked improvement on his cool down time after a lesson and ability to perspire. He has been on this product for over a year and the results are amazing! He sweats easily year-round, cools down like a “normal” horse, and can now horse show any time of the year. He will never be without this product!”

Ellen White Head Coach, Baylor Equestrian
Dear Choice of Champions, As the head coach of Baylor University’s women’s equestrian team, I wanted to express my gratitude for the Choice of Champions products. The coaches, riders and horses have been extremely happy with your supplements. With horses being of all ages and sizes, and from a wide variety of backgrounds being donated to the team, joint problems are to be expected. However, with the Choice of Champions’ Super Joint Solution, we are able to keep our horses happy and sound. Horses that were once stiff have started moving with fluidity and swing after being started on the Super Joint Solution. In addition, the team’s non-sweating horses have improved immensely with the help of the True Sweat supplement. In the hot Texas summers, non-sweating is a huge concern of all coaches and riders, but we have been able to work our horses normally with the help of True Sweat. Our horses are comfortable and can safely work in the hundred-degree temperatures with the assistance of True Sweat. Again, thank you for your wonderful products. Baylor Equestrian is proud to feed Choice of Champions products, and we truly appreciate you informing us of any new products that may improve the performance of Baylor Equestrian’s horses.

Lisa Seder
“I wanted to tell you about how much your U Shield has helped my 6 yr. old Thoroughbred Gelding. He has been tough to keep the weight on and with the U Shield he is eating so much more! I ran out of the U Shield for two weeks and noticed a HUGE difference in his eating. He did not eat as much and so I put him back on the U Shield and within a day or two he was back to chowing down the hay again! Thank you so much for producing a wonderful product at an affordable price. It has made a huge difference and he has gained a lot of weight and he looks great!”
