NutraCea, a world leader in stabilized rice bran (SRB) nutrient research and technology, has announced that a winner, at the elite 2008 Swedish Sport Championships for 5 year old Dressage Horses, had been regularly fed Max-E-Glo, NutraCea's preservative-free, rice-bran-based equine feed product. The Rank 1, five-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion, Wladimir OA 1138, is partly owned by preeminent Swedish breeder, owner, trainer and rider Birgitta Kjellin, who credited Max-E-Glo with improving Wladimir's overall condition, as well as that of the other horses she owns. Ms. Kjellin is not a paid spokeswoman for NutraCea. The Swedish Breeding and Sport Championships, is a premier event for young horses in both dressage and jumping and a renowned event throughout Europe, taking place in mid-October at Flyinge State Stud in Flyinge, Sweden.
Ms. Kjellin said, "Max-E-Glo helps to build the horse, which enhances the conformation and gives you a lovely top line. We also believe that Max-E-Glo enhances the coat and hoof condition. It is important for us to feed Max-E-Glo during the period of preparation for such events. Then one week before the finals in October, we take the training down and let them rest up." Birgitta said that she had noted that the horses being fed Max-E-Glo had a much better overall condition. "They were easier to build up during the entire training period and the condition stayed with the horse. Our training consists of intense activity, and we saw a remarkable difference between the horses being fed Max-E-Glo and the horses without Max-E-Glo."
Matthew T. Butler, NutraCea's Vice President, Equine/Animal Division said, "When it comes to equine nutrition our Max-E-Glo has consistently proven to provide a competitive edge in producing champions."
