"I will definitely keep up with this!"

My horse Batman is only 11 years old. Something happened on end of May that he had lameness in front left hoof and took to vet and spent $$$ and they couldn't find something wrong plus I called farrier to fixed his balance corrective and still no improve with lameness. I decided to starting SummitMax on him last month ago and do Magnawave 3 times per week for month too. Almost 3 weeks later, his lameness is gone! I'm shocked how that's works! Now he is so ready back to his job what he loves to do!

Bar G2 PerformanceTherapy from Talala, OK

"This product is the best!"

I've been giving SummitMax to my 12 year old horse for over a year now and this product has saved me from spending thousands of dollars on joint injections. It makes such a difference in his gaits, stamina and overall demeanor. We love Summit!

Jaime from Hope Mills

"Keeps my mare sound year round!"

My mare has been on Summit for a few years. She has navicular on her right front, but was over compensating making her left hind sore. As soon as she finished loading she has been sound and stays sound even when I pull shoes for the winter. I'm beyond thrilled with the results, because not only do I still run her in barrels, but my 4 year old daughter has claimed Moxie as her full time barrel and ranch horse. They trailed cows for a good 12 miles, and then turned around and 'ran' barrels that weekend. It is an amazing product!

"Sr horse staying strong"

I use this product on my 19 yr half Arabian reiner. I have stopped doing joint injections on my horse. He is sound, staying fit, and competing successfully.

Louie's mom fromSaint George

"Love this product for my performance geldings!"

This injectable has made a huge difference in my geldings! They don't get sore in their hocks and stifles as much as they use to and I do not have to have their hocks injected near as often! Thanks for such a great product!

MJ from SD

"Saved from Check Ligament Surgery."

From needing surgery by most trainers standards to world and reserve world champion using Summit. This product works and we've used it on multiple horses and the inflammation and soundness is markedly improved within 24 hours post injection. Fetlocks and knees went from popping forward and shaking to locked in over night. We've used this product on weanlings and yearlings with substantial epiphysitis and growth related problems and have loved the response. 5/5 would recommend and purchase again!

Rockin Spots Appaloosas from Independence, IA

"Game changer!!"

I started using equine Summit about three years ago on my OTTB mare who has arthritis in her hocks. A day or two after her first injection she was moving better, and could turn in the wash rack with ease. She also started running up to the gate to meet me, and still does it! Summit was a game changer and now my other two horses get a shot every 2 weeks as well! I believe that every horse should be on Summit.
