Soothe it with silver!

We all hope that our first aid kit doesn’t get brought out too often, however the reality is that horses and ponies are often getting into scrapes! We now provide horse owners with a simple, effective and easy solution to treating minor ailments, in the form of AGSilver Max Strength CleanBalm.

As the choice of many riders across the globe, Max Strength CleanBalm treats scratches, skin irritations and helps prevent infection with the use of unique Agion Silver. This super-smart ionic material kills bacteria, viruses and fungi ‘on demand’, helping to increase healing and prevent any further complications in a totally safe and environmentally friendly way.

By tapping into this naturally occurring silver technology’s ability to kill viruses, moulds and fungi, Max Strength CleanBalm is effective at preventing and treating all manner of skin irritations including shallow cuts, nicks, rubs, abscesses, mud fever, rainscald and other external wounds and skin conditions.

The versatile, petroleum-based ointment is easy to apply and with many incidents occurring when away from home, the handy tin is easy to transport and keep to hand so you are prepared for minor accidents and emergencies! An essential for all first aid kits, at home and in the lorry, Max Strength CleanBalm is free from antibiotics and helps to reduce and prevent the growth of bacterial and fungal organisms even in horses with recurring problems.

As the best selling product in the AGSilver collection, Max Strength CleanBalm has a multitude of uses, from soothing cracked mouths, preventing the spread of skin conditions to healing boot rubs. Customers have even reported that the handy ointment has been effective when used on dogs, cats and even themselves!

A little goes a long way, meaning the unique formula is cost effective and can help prevent the development of costly veterinary issues and performance zapping infections. AGSilver Max Strength CleanBalm is available in a handy 1oz or 4oz tin and starts at £13.50. View and buy online at www.performancerider.co.uk or give us a call on 01483 346011.

When results count!

With the eventing season underway we attended the British Eventing Horse Trials at Tweseldown, our local event, with the PERFORMANCE RIDER pop-up shop. As always the course and venue was superb and it was good to see so many friends out and about. After a winter indoors with the stand it was brilliant to be outdoors in the spring sunshine (very lucky for March!) in fact, Frank is already working on his t-shirt tan!

The sharp eyed among you will have spotted that we now stock CAVALOR natural supplements and products to sit alongside our popular HORSE FIRST supplement brand and AG SILVER natural healing products. We feel that this is a winning combination to help keep your horse in fantastic condition throughout the year.

We met with the head of Cavalor Mr Peter Bollen to get fully trained on how the different products work and should be used to get the best effect. He had real insight in to how to keep horses healthy and/or resolve specific issues, so if you have any particular concerns about your horse please give us a call to discuss which product might be right. Also we thought we could pass on some of his hints and tips so keep an eye on our Facebook page for regular updates to keep your horse healthy throughout the season.

Our ‘start of the season’ top tip… Some horses don’t cope with the coat and season change at all well and get run down very easily. Dull coat, loss of performance and general lower ‘bounce’ sound familiar? And just when you think they should be picking up after winter! This is really true of one of our horses who definitely gets down at this time of year, he looks like he has already done some hard graft despite the season hardly starting, and the final clue, he gets skin complaints. One season we started eventing with half his hair missing off his head! Not an attractive look but you do find people give you wide birth in the collecting ring! So to overcome this type of problem Peter recommends CAVALOR RESIST with Vit C. It increases your horse’s immune system and resistance to viruses, particularly at this time of year. It is also brilliant if you are staying away in communal stables a lot throughout the season. He says for best results you should start using it ten days before staying away. If you think your horse might benefit then we are stocking the 2kg tub at £110, you can find it on our web site, http://www.performancerider.co.uk. We are starting our horse on this and using our AG Silver Max Strength and Daily Strength Wash to keep skin complaints at bay.

Our new clothing range, Manfredi, is getting lots of attention on the stand. The Red and Royal Blue Ladies Fontana jackets are proving very popular. And as you may have already seen on one our blog posts, after a lot of pestering last year for men’s clothing we have both Manfredi and GPA men’s jackets, breeches and shirts as well as some other essential fashion items for the season. Don’t be shy, come on over and try some on!

Thanks for reading! Oh and when I get a chance I will post a little tale to make you laugh under the title of I SHOULD KNOW BETTER! Watch this space…


Winter ailments CAN have a silver lining!

The snow has melted, the sun seems to have disappeared and all we are surrounded  by is MUD! This combined with damp and cold weather combines to create age old problems such as mud fever, bacterial infections and other skin conditions, adding to what is already a difficult, and often unpleasant time of year.

As horse owners themselves and having been faced with winter challenges season after season, the team at Performance Rider are pleased to introduce a brand new range of skin care products, which could be the difference between stress-ful and stress-free this year!

Proven US brand, AGSilver is now exclusively available from Performance Rider in the UK and provides horse owners with a simple, yet highly effective range of products incorporating the historically recognised antibacterial ingredient, Ionic Silver.

Agion Silver is the predominant ingredient in AgSilver products, which is a super-smart ionic material that kills bacteria, viruses and fungi ‘on demand’. By tapping in to this innovative Silver technology’s ability to kill viruses, moulds and fungi, the AGSilver horse care products are effective at preventing and treating all manner of skin irritations including nicks, cuts, rainscald, mud fever, thrush and other external wounds that can or have already become infected.

The AGSilver range comprises of Daily and Max Strength antibiotic-free shampoos, powders and wound dressings – all infused with the powerful properties of ionic silver to prevent and protect against a host of common ailments. From the Daily CleanWash, Spray and Talc intended for periodic use, to the Max Strength CleanBalm, Gel and WoundWrap designed to aggressively reduce and prevent the growth of bacterial and fungal organisms, particularly in horses with persistent problems.

The AGSilver collection works well when used as a whole system, but equally when used individually for specific problems. Browse the virtual shelves at www.performancerider.co.uk
