“I love that Equiwinner works without having to buy special feed or injecting. I have used this product for years on mares and geldings and you can see results fast. Wanaka is a great filly and when she would get moody and tie up, we would put the patch on and see results within the first 2 days. I recommend this product to anyone who is looking to treat a horse that frequently ties up. Also works with a horse that seems to be down on energy or sour. No mess, no fuss . . just great results. I am a believer in Equiwinner.”
Trevor Henry, Canada’s top winning harness driver
Things were not going well for this filly until she became an Equiwinner horse!
“In the fall of 2014, while running horses at the Downs of Albuquerque, I spotted Oh If I Catch You. While she had eleven starts, she was near 50% in the money. I was impressed with her breeding and background. Her sire was a KY bred multi grade stakes winner; her dam did not run, however, her lineage included Northern Dancer and Raise a Native. Oh If I Catch You ran in 2015 without success. At the track in Farmington, NM, she bled during races. The only advice from the vet was to double up on the lasix. At the Downs of Albuquerque she bled during a race covering the jockey and herself. She was vanned off the track. If she had bled during another race, she would have been banned from the track for a year. It was then I began searching the internet for a solution to the filly’s bleeding problem, and found Equiwinner patches.
“After using the patches on Oh If I Catch You, she photoed for the win on her first race out. Since then she has won three races in a row. Because of our success with this product, we have started two other fillies on the patches.”

Canadian Champion Header Treats Family Herd with Equiwinner
“My head horse, Ace, started shaking his head last summer and I wasn’t sure what was happening. When it started up again this spring, I knew I needed to try something. I discovered Equiwinner patches and had to give them a try after reading several testimonials.
“Now, I am a ranch raised, old school cowboy, that doesn’t get too excited about products until I have some proof of my own. I had nothing to lose, and to be completely honest, didn’t know if I had much faith in this either. I started with the patches and by day 4, Ace’s coat became shinier and he started to look noticeably better. At day 7, his head shaking had drastically reduced. After 10 days with Equiwinner, I had a head horse that looked and felt great. His headshaking was nearly gone, and he had more energy than I ever remember him having. This was proof enough to try this product on our barrel horses too.
“We have 2 teenage daughters that run barrels and we immediately started their horses on Equiwinner patches too. They started to make runs that were better than we were expecting. They too shed out better, had better appetites, and drank better on the road. Bryce’s 11 year old mare, Crazy Alice, had a noticeable better recovery time after runs, and became much more consistent. Branna’s 20 year old gelding, Hank, found a serious second wind on life!
“We are sold on Equiwinner patches and what they have done for our horses. They are affordable, easy to use, and effective. The overall herd health is all the proof we need. I would recommend this product to anyone. Thank you, Equiwinner, for getting our horses back to normal!”

Harley Brown joins Team Equiwinner!
“I use Equiwinner patches on my horses when they travel and also on horses recently imported from Europe. I notice the horses have increased energy levels and their coats and over all condition improve.”

“Miles is a headshaker during the summer months. It had been controlled with cyproheptadine until last year when he was in such distress he could not be ridden until fall. Then, in the spring he was back in distress by the end of April. I found your Equiwinner patch through my trainer in May. She had seen good results on other horses for sweating issues. The patch has been a life-saver not only for Miles but me as well. I had done everything I could to try to help him with no success. Watching him in distress took its toll on both of us. After the third day on the patch he was completely back to normal and has been schooling all summer. I repeated the patch in July when I thought I saw some twitching coming back. I ordered again now (September) just to have the patch on hand. I kept him on the cypro this summer but I am hoping he won’t need it next year. The vets that know Miles are struggling to explain the change in him. It is not the case that he was helped a little – it was a complete and immediate change from involuntary head twitching and shaking, lack of appetite, and malaise to being normal in every way. He’s happy again. In addition, I stopped putting the thick UV block mask on him because it is so hot for him to wear in the summer and he shows no signs of any problem with UV light. The Equiwinner Patch gave me my horse back. Thank you.”

Four star event horse’s appetite and hoof growth improves.
“After trying so many different supplements and ulcer treatments, I was a little skeptical if the Equiwinner patches could help my horse. After using them on my four star event horse I was very impressed at the results. Within 5 days of using the patches my “hard keeper Thoroughbred” began eating all of his feed. Now 6 weeks after using the Equiwinner patches his hoof growth has doubled. His coat and skin look amazing. I am excited to use them on my other horses. I definitely recommend the Equiwinner patches for event horses. They really make a difference!”
Anna Collier, 3-day Event Rider/Trainer, 2015 Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event Competitor
“I’m a 3 day event rider and trainer. I have a horse in my string that has been an extremely competitive prelim horse looking for his 1* debut next year. He was having some issues with being stiff and having muscle tie up issues for a couple months and after trying to change his diet and having his massage therapist and chiropractor out we were at a loss. Before our last event at MidSouth Three Day Event at Kentucky Horse Park, my trainer, Jennifer Dougherty, gave me a 10 day patch kit and told me to try them. The owner of the horse and I were pretty skeptical on how a patch that just sticks on was going to help the issue but decided to give it a try. Without changing any of his workout sessions or feeding/diet we started using the patches 10 days out from the show date. After the 3rd day of changing the patches i started to notice a change in his suppleness and push from his hind. By the time we got to KY he felt like a completely different horse than he has all year (in a good way). He gave me a great dressage ride and I could tell he was much happier while galloping cross country. He ended up placing second for his last qualifying score for CCI 1*. I’m a true believer in the patches and the effect they had on our situation. You can also thank Jennifer Dougherty because if it wasn’t for her giving me a kit convincing me to use it I would have never believed that a simple stick on patch could change a horse’s happiness and willingness to work that much. Thank you for a great product to the equestrian world.”
Ryan Bean, FEI 3 Day Event Rider/Trainer
“I first used Equiwinner patches last year, after my barrel horse Sweet Heart Special, AKA Tweety, had a mild tie up while on the rodeo trail. Upon trying this product I am very satisfied that it has helped to keep Tweety in balance and performing at her best. I have also used Equiwinner patches to help my back up mare drink better while traveling. We definitely noticed an increase in her drinking while on the road. I firmly believe Equiwinner has improved my horses’ well being, therefore helping to promote better performance. This product will be a permanent addition to our trailer.”

“A few weeks ago, I was faced with my fourth horse with anhydrosis since 2003. Needless to say, I have tried everything over the years, with varying degrees of success. I ordered your patches and within hours my horse was sweating again! He is 16 with Cushing’s, so I just knew he was going to be a difficult case, who may never sweat again…I was thankfully wrong!
“I am amazed at the simplicity and effectiveness of your product. I’ve never seen anything work so fast and so well as your patches…they are worth every penny!!”
Melinda Mayes, Weatherford, TX
Tying-up did not stop Trula Churchill from qualifying for her first National Finals Rodeo in 2012.
“I started using the Equiwinner patches on Worm after a tie-up episode in the fall of 2012. He hasn’t had a tie-up episode since! I haven’t ever used any other product that has helped my horses as effectively as Equiwinner does.”
Trula Churchill, Professional Barrel Racer
2011 Canadian Champion, NFR Qualifier 2012-13-14!
“Equiwinner patches are the real deal. I was introduced to them by Trula Churchill who had had success with her horse that was tying up. I have used them on a horse that was a headshaker. Within five days of using the patch I began to notice a change. The headshaking became less every day. The headshaking did not totally go away but I would say 90% improvement. Another change I noticed was that he began to eat and drink better on the road. He had never been one that would drink when I would stop on the road and now he does. I also used the patches on a mare that was anhidrotic. I bought her in the middle of the summer and brought her to Texas. I took her off of the supplements that the previous owners were using to help her sweat and did the Equiwinner patch treatment on her. On the 13th day I noticed a change in her sweating pattern. She began to sweat more on her neck and between her back legs. She also was much more comfortable and not panting. My horses look and act like they feel very good. I will use the Equiwinner patch on all my horses to give them the opportunity to feel their very best. I recommend Equiwinner for every horse.”
Corley Cox, NFR qualifier, Futurity Champion , Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame inductee
“Equiwinner is a routine treatment for my horses over the last 4 years. I’ve had extraordinary results treating and preventing Azoturia (tying up) and EIPH (bleeding) avoiding the high cost to treat these ongoing racehorse ailments in a simple nonintrusive application. The horses’ coats look shiny and healthy throughout the year with 1 ten day treatment. My horses ship better and are not washing out in the hot summer months during peak race season.”

“I have never written to a company before but Equiwinner patches have changed my horses and my own life. Two years ago my prelim event horse stopped sweating. Like everyone else, I tried everything. Nothing worked. By mid summer he had lost patches of hair on his face and panted all the time. I had to keep him inside with a fan on him. He was not ridable.
“I had heard through a vet down south about these patches. He seemed skeptical but I felt desperate. After a few days, he started sweating under the patch. I had a glimmer of hope. Within two weeks he was sweating, not quite like a normal horse but so much better. His coat became shiny again and he started to grow hair back on his face. His appetite also improved along with his general attitude.
“Two years later I now do the patches once or twice a year and he has returned to competing during the summer and sweats like any other horse. Equiwinner saved my horse. I have also used it on another horse with the same results. I would highly recommend Equiwinner patches. Please spread the word, it can change not only your horses’ lives but your own.”
International FEI Event Rider
“All I can say is Equiwinner patches are amazing. Most of 2016 I had a real problem with my futurity horse tying up. I had to draw out of numerous futurities due to the problem. It wasn’t until fall in Wyoming she tied up again. That’s when I heard about Equiwinner. They overnighted the patches and I was able to compete the rest of the month. Not only has she not tied up since, her coat is shiny and she looks and acts amazing. Equiwinner patches definitely work.”
Randee Hedrick, Pro Barrel Racer, Futurity and Derby Champion, 2016 Derby World Champion
“Equiwinner patches have been an integral part of the program which keeps my show jumpers in top form. From overall coat condition to finishing strong off a big jumping track, my horses are in the best shape ever since the use of the patches.
“We compete roughly 20 weeks every year throughout California, Nevada and Canada. Keeping the electrolytes balanced during the stresses of travel and competition is imperative. I find that two to four treatments per year is optimal for the amount of time we spend on the road. It’s a win-win with the Equiwinner guarantee…and the stellar customer service!”

“My story begins with a pair of mini’s I got from a 501 C rescue. They are half brothers and appeared to be in good health. As time went by I discovered they were insulin resistant and one had anhydrosis. “Jake” being the non sweater proved to be the toughest patient as he was a picky eater, got sore feet easily and seemed to get “the bla’s” frequently. He slipped his grazing muzzle like a toddler slipped sneakers and was forever trying to drown himself in small buckets of water. I provided him with misting hoses, tubs of cool water, electrolytes, fans of every size sold and nothing helped. He rarely actually drank water and refused wet hay. Once in a while he would eat wet forage but most of the time in Florida’s humid climate any wet feed had to be dumped out quickly. He hated most supplements and fights to get him to eat them just are not worth the stress. Then I found Equiwinner patches!!! Jake still has to be fed like an IR pony with no sugar, but he now sweats, drinks and is comfortable! I never thought I would see that day! I thought he would live a short life due to his anhydrosis. Thank you Signal-Health!!!”

“I ran Ghost last weekend in a 3 day barrel race. We won the average and our first belt buckle. No head shaking at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy and very excited. 9 years we have been dealing with Ghost’s headshaking. Thank you. I have my old guy back. Love your product.”
Wendy Parker, Yampa, CO
“I’d been managing the anhydrosis of my gifted young horse, Stratocaster, by riding him early in the morning, feeding him beer and paying him extra mind on hot days, but I knew it was only a matter of time before I had to compete him at, inevitably, 1 pm on an 106° afternoon at some major competition, and I needed a new strategy. After playing with his nutrition to little effect, I stumbled upon Equiwinner. After one ten-day course of application, “Fender” began to sweat almost completely normally, and recover more quickly than I’d ever seen. Equiwinner is the last thing – of many! – that I tried, but hands-down the best. It’s allowed my talented horse to train and compete normally, and given me tremendous peace of mind.”
Lauren Sprieser, USDF Gold, Silver & Bronze Medalist, High Performance Dressage rider and trainer & blogger for Chronicle of the Horse
“I have been using this product on my show horses and I had incredible results! What made me believe in it even more is when I had my daughters’ mare (that is now 26 years old) had an episode of epistaxis (bleeding) after a class. I used it on her for the recommended time of application and never had that problem again. It made a huge difference in her well being and she wins all the classes she competes in! I keep using it each time she has a serious competition where she has to try hard for my daughters. I had also a mare that tied up on us and the Equiwinner was also the solution.
“I can’t be happier that I found this product that works on all my horses, that works in a very simple principle by balancing the electrolytes in their system.”

“I got a flyer and tried a treatment. The results are outstanding. A 6 year old gelding trotter doubled his water intake and in 3 years I have not seen his coat better…he shines! I’ll keep an eye on him and be ready to go with another treatment when needed. From now on all of my horses will be on Equiwinner.”

Prelim event horse stops bleeding!
“We used Equiwinner on our OTTB. He was a bleeder. His race record showed him running on Lasix and when he reached training eventing level he began to bleed for us. Last season he bled through bleeder supplements and medications, so we tried Equiwinner this spring. He has run 6 prelim events and has not bled. In addition to that, he has been eating and drinking much better, on a daily basis and at events, and I feel has performed better than last year. I expect that we will continue to use this on him at least yearly at the beginning of each season. Thanks Equiwinner!”
Professional barrel racer sees improved health and stronger finishes.
“I have used Equiwinner patches on three separate horses and feel they were beneficial on all. I noticed stronger finishes and less nervousness on all three horses. I fully expect to continue using the Equiwinner patch in the future on any horses that I suspect of being bleeders or non-sweaters.”

Competitive Endurance Rider Recommends Equiwinner for Hydration.
“For the first time ever, we were able to do three days in a row at the Mount Carmel endurance ride. My mare drank very well on the trail the entire day. And she also ate grass very well on the trail every day. This is unprecedented behavior for her. I also noticed that her coat is shouted out very shiny with dapples. It is usually very dry, like it is sunburned. So I am going to say using the patch for 10 days was a success.”

Pro barrel horse stops headshaking after 13 years!
“I have had a headshaker for the past 13 years. I started using the Equiwinner patch 2 summers ago and the results have been amazing. At first I thought it was a fluke but now I am sold on it. . . . I just was amazed how they helped my horse. I tried everything under the sun believe me. . . . My horse has been competing on the pro level and winning money with this problem . . Try them and give it time to work. I did not see immediate results but he slowly started to improve until it stopped completely. I do put the patch on every spring for prevention though. I invested the $100 and in two months I won over $2,000 at a time he would have been at his worst and this happened two summers in a row so I am a firm believer.”
kaligirl, on Barrel Horse World forum
“I just wanted to say I tried Equiwinner in June, 2012 after my horse developed headshaking “overnight”. My late husband was a veterinarian and was unable to prescribe any treatment that alleviated the problem. I found Equiwinner in a web search and ordered it. The first treatment improved the symptoms but didn’t totally eliminate them so I did a second treatment. As it was in October when we did the treatment, we weren’t sure if it was the Equiwinner or the end of the season that did the trick. In April of this year I did another treatment as a preventative measure and no symptoms developed. A couple of weeks ago as the weather started changing she started with some mild symptoms so we started her on another course of patches. Three days after starting she had her best dressage score of the year!”
Kathie Hackler, California
6 year old Morgan cross starts sweating on the second day with Equiwinner.
I just wanted to tell you that I received my patches last Monday and my daughter’s horse (Rory) has made an almost miraculous turn around! He had (overnight) stopped sweating and had been slowly losing his coat in patches and his coat was no longer glossy. This is my first summer with him, so I don’t know if he has had anhydrosis previously. The second day of the patches, he was sweating under his mane and between his hind legs. By the fourth patch he had sweat on his flanks and chest and his hair coat was looking better. You could actually see improvement in his coloring! We are now on the seventh patch. He is sweating normally. His “spark” is back and he is the most glorious horse on the place! Thanks so much for this product. I am a believer! So much so that I am going to order an additional set of patches for my personal horse. He is sweating just fine and had no other issues, but he is very dry and bleached out from the sun. If this product did this much for Rory, Grady would benefit too. Thanks again.
Nikki Murray, Sweetgrass Farm, Montgomery, TX
“I have a 16 yr old thoroughbred gelding that was a severe head shaker. Every year it would start in May and escalate through June and he would be pretty much unrideable all summer. I tried Benadryl, steroids(oral and injected), dark fly masks, net relief, etc., to no avail. Poor guy was miserable. My husband was researching online for solutions for head shaking. He found Equiwinner Patches and I figured,-why not? I used all twelve of them(2 extra come in the box). By day 3 of treatment his head shaking was relieved!!!! I honestly was truly amazed. Even in the heat and mid day sun, I rode him without his fly mask and net on his bridle with NO HEADSHAKING!!! I am so thankful for this product!!!”
Stephanie Powers, Roscoe, IL
“I used the patches on a (barrel horse) bleeder last year with great results. He’s an 18 yr old stud and fired harder than he ever has after using the patches. I highly recommend them.”
Shannon Porch-Reed, South Dakota
“I have a 24 year old T.B. gelding who has been headshaking for the last 9 years. For the first 4 years it started in June & lasted until Sept. Then for the last 5 years, it began in April & ended in Oct. After the first (Equiwinner) treatment, Murphy stopped headshaking as long as I wasn’t riding him. I did extra brushing around his head & did the cold sponging twice a day, most days. Then I started him on his second round of treatment & did the extra brushing & cold sponging. With every ride, he just got better & better until finally, NO more headshaking. What a great product!!! I am so happy that my horse does not have to suffer from the headshaking anymore. Next spring I will be ordering more patches to keep him healthy & happy.
Carol Gilroy, Ontario, Canada
“I tried Equiwinner this summer with my event mare that suffers from anhidrosis. She had been on another supplement that had worked for her for the past few years but this summer stopped working for her. I was skeptical at first but the patches were recommended to me by a professional in the horse industry that I trust completely. I also felt like I didn’t have anything to lose by trying them since they have a money back guarantee. Within five days of using the patches my mare was sweating like crazy! Before the patches on hot humid days (so, basically all summer in Wisconsin) she would be out in the pasture panting. Her respiratory rate would be scary. I would bring her in and cold hose her and put her in her stall in front of a fan . . . she was also on another supplement for anhidrosis that helped a bit but nothing like the Equiwinner patch. I can’t give the patches enough of a positive review. They have changed my life and the life of my mare. Thank you Equiwinner!”

Krz Exec wins $66,000 Maiden Special Weight on 1st day after treatment with Equiwinner for tying-up, then wins $125,000 South Ocean Stakes and $150,000 Ontario Lassie Stakes.
“In 2007, I had the opportunity to train a 2 year old filly that appeared to be a talented race horse. Unfortunately, she had a tendency to tie up. I tried all the conventional methods and medications that I had used on other horses in the past, but, unfortunately, she would still continue to tie up occasionally. I tried Equiwinner patches for 10 days prior to her race. During that time she did not tie up and she went on to break her maiden in allowance company. She went on to win her next 2 races which were in stakes company. Using Equiwinner patches allowed me to train this filly without the fear of her tying up. She really seemed to turn a corner with the use of the patches. I highly recommend the use of Equiwinner. It worked for me and I will continue to use them.”
Mike De Paulo, thoroughbred trainer
“I used Equiwinner three months ago to treat a non-sweater. After three days, she started sweating and she’s been sweating well ever since. She eats and drinks better, she recovers from work much faster and her coat has improved so much, people have noticed. She’s just healthier with a corresponding improvement in performance. She’s now feeling good and is more willing to pass other horses, coming in second in three out of four starts.”
Bill O’Donnell, standardbred driver/trainer (US & Canadian Halls of Fame)
“…just a quick note to say thanks!!! Your product did an amazing job on my daughter’s 9 yr. old TB jumper gelding who developed headshaking syndrome almost over-night. Within 4 or 5 days of the symptoms developing he had become unrideable simply because he was so distracted and distraught over the symptoms that he barely was aware that my daughter was astride him. I found the product online and 24 hours after the first patch he was able to start training again and the daily progress was astounding…we showed him the last day of his treatment and I have to say that he is now a more relaxed and content horse that he was when we bought him 4 years ago!”
Lorraine Poulin-Lawson, Ontario, Canada
“I decided to try Equiwinner patches at a time when I was in a desperate situation with Stuck in Traffic. He was one of Canada’s top two-year old males in 2007 and he had just bled. We tried the usual things but couldn’t stop him from bleeding. After treating him with Equiwinner, he won the next two stakes races, and came in second in a third stakes race and the patches did what they claim to do. He did not bleed, and has not bled since the treatment almost 4 months ago.
“I also used Equiwinner on Delaforce, a nervous horse who had bled in his first race of the year. Since we used the patches, he has not bled and he ran a very good third in his first allowance race and then won a big allowance race a month later. We’re now pointing him towards a stakes race.
“My most gratifying experience with Equiwinner is with D’duplicate. When we got him, his coat was terrible and he bled easily, just galloping in the morning. After treating him with the patches, he won his next two races. He’s now looking good and is healthy from the inside out. The results we’ve gotten have been very impressive.”
Nick Gonzalez, thoroughbred trainer
Postmark closes 15 lengths in stretch after treatment with Equiwinner for bleeding. Then wins $14,000 1 Mile Pace and next $21,000 1 Mile Pace.
“On September 8th, 2007, my filly Postmark bled from her nose after a dull effort. She had raced without her normal closing kick her previous 2 starts and I presume that she bled then also. I gave her three weeks of jogging to allow her lungs to clear and then worked her a mile in 2:12. She bled again from her nose and I and my partner decided to quit with her for the year. That afternoon, I came across the Equiwinner website and decided to try the patches before I quit with her. I used the patches for ten days, then qualified her on Oct. 16. I had her scoped afterward and she had a very small trace of blood at the bottom of her air passageway. I went ahead and raced her without lasix and she scoped clean except for excess mucus with a single drop of blood in it.
“Veterinarian estimates were that on a scale of 1-5, she had gone from a 5 to a 0.5 on bleeding. I put her on 4cc of lasix, raced her again and she scoped clean. I then sent her to Woodbine to race and the results are as shown on Signal-Health’s website. There is no question in my mind that these patches work. I have purchased additional sets of patches for friends and would judge that in all cases the horses’ performance improved, sometimes dramatically.”
Charles Stillings, standardbred owner
“I have seen the Equiwinner patches work to help non sweaters sweat and
horses who have trouble acclimating to the heat acclimate quickly. I personally

Competitive Endurance Rider Recommends Equiwinner
“I have always struggled with horse hydration issues on endurance rides and decided to try Equiwinner patches. On my first 30 mile ride on a new horse after the treatment, my horse stayed very well hydrated throughout the ride, passing each vet check. I did not use anything else but the Equiwinner patches. At each water stop, my horse drank water readily but not to excess. I am impressed and would recommend Equiwinner to anyone with horse hydration problems. It’ll be one less thing to worry about.”
Rodne LeCouteur, Great Lakes Distance Riding Association Competitive Endurance Rider
“2 years ago I began the process of putting a foundation on my mare to become a professional barrel horse. Breathing issues (or so I thought) kept the progress slow and frustrating. Over the course of a year and a half, my mare went through numerous medical procedures and was prescribed several different drugs all in a futile and expensive effort to solve her problem. We never considered the possibility of her breathing problem as anhidrosis. I live in a very dry climate and anhidrosis is rare in this region. The disease finally progressed to the point she could not sweat at all and one hot day I found her panting in her paddock which finally clued me in.
“I was thrilled to finally have a diagnosis, not realizing the cure was going to be as difficult to find as the diagnosis. Supplements, beer, electrolytes, acupuncture, riding when the weather cooled off, hosing her off before, during and after a training session all helped….a little. FINALLY I found Equiwinner patches and decided they were a no-brain’r considering Signal-Health offered a money back guarantee. I applied them and they worked great… for about 6 weeks.
“When I called Barbara to get my money back she was more than willing to issue me a refund but thankfully offered me another set of patches with some ideas on diet changes rather than the refund. Of course my preference was a cure over getting a refund so I agreed to try the 2nd set of patches with diet changes that reduced her alfalfa and carbohydrate intake along with extremely limited pasture access to keep her blood sugar from hitting highs and lows.
“I applied the 2nd set of patches in April and my mare immediately began sweating again. We had a record breaking hot summer and she exhibited NO signs of anhidrosis all summer long.
“A completely unexpected bonus to the Equiwinner patches and diet change was the help they gave this mare with her hormone issues. In previous years she always cycled extremely hard and this spring was proving to be no different. After the 2nd set of patches and Barbara’s help with a feed change this mare’s hormone problems disappeared until late summer. A small change to her feed program brought the hormone issues back but returning to the previous feed program leveled her back out again.
“Thank you Signal Health for a great product and Barbara for all your expertise and assistance!”
Karen Turek, Fort Collins, CO
“I don’t know how it worked, but it did. I completed the 10-day treatment May 5. My horse now sweats like a normal horse should in a work-out. He has never sweat like this before. I could ride him hard in the heat and have nothing but a totally dry, panting, pissed off animal. My strategy was to ride late at night, or if riding in the heat I would completely hose him down before riding and then stop to hose him off intermittently when he started puffing.
“Occasionally, when the stars were aligned just right, he would manage a light sweat under his neck, between his front legs and in the groin. Now he’s getting a consistent, all-over sweat every ride, and it hasn’t even been hot here yet. It was in the low-mid 70s today and when I brought him in from the pasture he already had a sweat going between his legs. I have NEVER found him anything but totally dry on the hottest days of summer.
“I decided to try Equiwinner after my friend applied the first patch to her non-sweating Friesian. The trainer got on to ride, and within 30 minutes the horse was sweating head to toe.
“I have no idea how it works, but I thought I would pass it along.”

“My very favorite and top producing Gypsy mare wasn’t sweating. I tried other feed additives that didn’t work. My vet said I should sell her to someone up North. My best mare?! AAhhhhhhh! I tried Equiwinner. It had a guarantee so how could I lose. YIPEE!! My best mare now sweats and we are BOTH very happy . . . . as are her sweet foals. THANKS Equiwinner!”
Linda Brown, A Wizards Spell Ranch, Burleson, TX
“I know it saved his life. Without the patch he wasn’t getting any better.”
“I want to thank you for your wonderful product, Equiwinner patches. It saved the life of my grandson’s horse. He has been having health problems for over 10 years. Vets did not know how to treat him. This June he tore a gaskin muscle, his blood work was not good, the vet was very worried. My husband saw this article in Horse & Rider, I ordered it, and now the new blood work is great. He is healing and sweating again. I can not thank you enough for this product.”

“My 14 year old barrel horse gelding which I’ve owned for 5 years is a bleeder. I’ve always injected him with 5cc Lasix before competition. My daughter started competing on him last year, and I hated injecting him because it really stressed out his system and made him really nervous (especially on a 3 day race). A friend told me to check out your ad in Barrel Horse News. I looked at the website and even inquired about the money back guarantee. Figuring I had nothing to lose and a sound horse to gain, I ordered the patches. I followed the directions and finished up the patches. We’ve competed the last 2 weekends and not only has he not bled but he’s not coughed or gotten overly winded!!! I cannot believe this worked, but I’m so excited that it did!! This product is unbelievable! Even if I have to use them more than once a year, your product is cheaper than feed thru supplements! I’ll definitely order more and want to use them on another of our horses that has some respiratory issues. I’ve already shared our success story with several people that I know have this issue, and I’ll continue to help others to help their horse!! Thanks again.”
Leigh Ann Richardson, Mississippi
“My friend’s horse lives with me and has been a headshaker for years. He had been getting worse to the point where he becomes unrideable. I saw an ad for Equiwinner patches and decided to try it since everything else had already been tried. The first treatment helped a little. The seond one helped more. After speaking with the company rep, I tried a third treatment. Now there is no more headshaking. We are totally amazed and very grateful for this breakthrough. We will treat him every year now.”
Beverly Bell, Chino Valley, AZ
“We used Equiwinner on our Stormy who suffers not only from anhidrosis, but heaves. She has had an amazing summer in comfort. We will repeat the patches for her again shortly, but she is sweating better and she is breathing better and we are out of our minds excited about this patch system.”
Raymond Petterson, President of Sox For Horses, Inc.
“I would like to thank you for your product. I bought a horse that I felt so sorry for as he was beautiful. He bled that bad on many occasions that he was warned off from the race track and on veterinarian advice was told he would never race again. After one course of treatment of your patches, the horse has never looked or felt better and has run successfully since, winning two races in a row this year and been placed many times. Thank you .”
Brian Malone, thoroughbred owner
“I want to express how thrilled I am to have found Equiwinner patches. My 13 year old barrel horse, Zorro, is a non-sweater. I bought him as a 6 year old in the early spring and didn’t realize he had a problem until Oklahoma and Texas brought their long 95 plus degrees heat and 100% humidity filled summer. I had spent long tireless hours hosing him off under industrialized fans, watching him have miserable panting days. I had tried every supplement on the market as well as the old wives tales, and nothing seemed to work. I finally found Equiwinner patches 3 years ago . . . . WOW What a dramatic improvement. I was finally able to keep him comfortable and even compete on him throughout the summer during our busy rodeo months! My heartfelt thanks for your product!”
Lee Ann Smith, New Boston, TX
Barrel horse starts sweating after 9 years.
“I have a 17 year old barrel horse who quit sweating at 7 years old. Every summer since then I could not compete on him between the months of June to September in the hot, humid Texas heat where we live. He would have to be stalled daily with fans and misters on him. Over the years, I have had every test run on him possible, administered numerous medications, and tried multiple supplements to no avail. By the time he was 14, I had just accepted the fact he would never sweat during the summer. Two years ago a friend told me about the Equiwinner Patches. I started him on them in late June. He sweated a little bit that summer and did not stand out under his fan/misters panting like a dog, but I was still too afraid to run him. I talked to Signal-Health and they had me start him on the patches a little earlier, so I started them in April last year. He still did not sweat like a normal horse, but he would have sweat on his neck and under his saddle which was a dramatic improvement. He also did not ever seem to be in any distress so for the first time in 9 years I was able to compete on him throughout the summer of last year. Thank you Equiwinner for giving me my Best Friend his summers back.”
Kim McCoy, New Boston, TX
“Equiwinner is the best product I’ve found to improve a horse’s coat and to improve sweating. It will become a regular part of my purchase program.”
Brian Prichard, thoroughbred trainer
“They worked pretty well for my horse. He was dry as a bone by this time last year, but so far he is still sweating. I have managed him differently, so that may have something to do with it. However, given the fact that he started sweating almost immediately after putting the first patch on . . . I know they do something.”

“This is the third year I’ve used Equiwinner. I have a horse that has sun sensitivity and shakes his head, snorts through his nose, rubs his nose on his leg when in direct sunlight from about mid April to mid October. He was becoming unrideable during this period of time. Using the patches does allow me to ride him during this season. I still keep him in during the day as all his discomfort is not completely gone, but workable.”
Susan Marano, Kirkwood, PA
“I used Equiwinner patches on 2 horses that were tying-up and had great success. It also kept them well hydrated. It’s a great product. Try it!”

Quarter horse starts sweating after 16 years!
“I want to tell you how thrilled I am to have found Equiwinner patches. My 21 year old QH R.B. stopped sweating when he was 5. We live in Alabama where the summers are long and in the mid to upper 90s with very high humidity. This horse really suffered even with fans on him. I have spent many hours hosing him to give him some relief. I have tried every supplement on the market with no success. I found your patches when I googled Anhidrosis in an attempt to find some help. I figured, with a money back guarantee, what did I have to lose? You can imagine how excited I was when R.B. started to sweat on the fourth day of using the patches! That was two months ago and he is still sweating. I cannot thank you enough for your product.”
Deborah Oiler, Montgomery, AL
“I finished a ten day program on my barrel mare two weeks ago. I cannot believe it’s the same horse. She has a completely different personality, she can breathe easier, and her performance has definitely improved. I had surgery done on her windpipe last October even though she didn’t ‘whistle’ or have any type of rushing sound when she ran. She had bled a couple of times, and it was obvious she would run out of air in a run. The worst symptom for her was that she was refusing to go in the arena, and she is not spoiled . . . . there was a health problem. Anyway, after the surgery last fall, I ran her once and then winter set in. She won the race but still wasn’t in top shape. I heard about your product from a friend in Kansas. Since my mare had had so much trouble last summer, I thought I would give it a try to see if it would help. I couuld never catch this horse without running her into a round pen, and even then she was anxious, and didn’t like any quick movements around her head. Her eye never looked calm and relaxed and she always seemed on edge. We raised this horse, and I love her to death. She has never been abused in any way, and she is a terrific ranch horse and a 1D barrel horse. The more urgency she senses in any stuation, the harder she will work, but before, she never wanted to be caught; once we had the halter on her, she was very disciplined, but just never very happy. Since your treatment, I can walk out and catch her anywhere, she never refuses the gate at a barrel race, and her head issues have disappeared. She actually behaves in a friendly manner, and her eye is soft and calm. When we got back from a barrel race yesterday, I watched her roll in the pasture and then get up and run around bucking and playing. I have NEVER seen her do that . . . . at least not since she was really young. She is ten now. I do believe her surgery helped, but I noticed the personality change after using your product. Thanks.”

“Equiwinner patches. They work. One of my TB’s is a non sweater. 10 days on the patches and he wins his next start, he had been running bad.”
Flypony on The Chronicle of the Horse forum
“Last year about this time I had 2 barrel horses stop sweating. In my 30 yr of being around and running barrel horses I had never come in contact with this disorder. The company assured me it would be ok and had confidence it would work. And It Did. The horses are now healthy and running again. This experience and the help I received will stay with me for the rest of my life. Thank you.”
April Hughes, Holly Springs, MS
“I have successfully treated horses for tying-up but have also found a dramatic improvement in attitude and sweating. One particular filly was sick and bleeding and Equiwinner helped her out too. I usually start to see the improvements in only three days.”
Leroy Copeland, standardbred trainer
“I heard about Equiwinner from another trainer when our horse, Ambro Continental, had to be pulled from the Breeders Crown Trot at Mohawk Racetrack in August. This is a horse who spends most of the day outside and doesn’t like to be out of his environment, and after being in the retention barn he just got tied up tight as a drum. He tied up so badly, his numbers were off the charts. We actually couldn’t get a reading on him for six days. We then tried Equiwinner and I’m pretty sure it’s the only thing that got him going. He just got better and better. Equiwinner saved him.”
Steve Bossence, standardbred trainer
“Equiwinner just seems to help a horse’s health generally. I’ve never had a horse that hasn’t looked better after using the patches.”
Peter Pugh, thoroughbred trainer
“I had issues with my horse (evented through Intermediate) at times he would not sweat at all. . . I searched the internet and found a patch by Equiwinner. It is a 10 day treatment, 1 patch a day and satisfaction guaranteed. This did work for my horse and he has no issues anymore. He is now retired but did a little training last year and was fine. . . I would recommend this product to anyone who is having these types of issues. Plus it is (was) relatively inexpensive.”

“I just wanted to let you know that I do feel like there is an improvement on my horse’s headshaking. I finished his treatment 1 day ago and I rode him today at the worst time of the day, lunch time. It’s 96 degrees here today with 94% humidity and I feel like he is better, I would say 90% BETTER, which is a great improvement. I just took him on a trail ride but you could enjoy yourself without having to deal with him shaking his head the whole time. He did shake some but there were some flies and not anymore than the other four horses. I know he is feeling better and he looks great. He is just about jet black where he was a dark chocolate before.”
Sherry Sturma, Rusty Gate Sport Horses, Silverhill, AL
“A couple of months ago I purchased a German Warmblood horse who had only been in the United States for three months. It was early April, and I soon noticed he was not sweating at all. I tried the usual remedies (beer, minerals, electrolytes, and other products for equine non-sweaters). None of these worked at all. As I live in South Florida, I knew this was a big and important issue. My vet suggested I try the patch, and having no other options and being desperate, I agreed. For a while nothing happened, and then it started. He is now sweating every day, his coat is beautiful, he has normal energy, he is happy, and his gastric issues have disappeared. He is in normal training and it is very hot here. He will be in his second dressage show this coming weekend. I didn’t think we could ride him this summer, and would have to wait until October. I am very grateful for this treatment. I will repeat it if he stops sweating again. I realize it may take one to two years for him to adjust from the cold German climate to the South Florida heat. However, with Equiwinner, I am no longer worried. Non sweating is a non issue for him.”
Wanda Bickel, Wellington, FL
“Thank you SOOOO Much . . . He is sweating like I cannot believe . . . I will be in touch next spring at the latest to get another box . . . ”
Lanette Hitechew, Orlando, FL
“The Equiwinner patch is what worked for my mare. We tried OneAC, Let Em Sweat, beer, changing her feed to alfalfa pellets and nothing worked. We did the patch in March and she’s sweating good now. I’m pleased and will get the patch again next spring.”

“Great news, at the hunter-jumper show this weekend, my school horse returned to dripping sweat in the heat of the afternoon classes. Horray!!!!!!!!!! I surely think Equiwinner has helped him return to normal. This treatment has my recommendation”
Elaine Hollis, Cape Coral, FL
“I have a 3 year old filly who had a solid year in NY Sire Stakes despite her tying up constantly. For those who understand blood results, she would have CPK’s into the 20,000 range and still perform. I started her on Equiwinner patches a little over 3 weeks ago and she hasn’t tied-up since and won at The Meadowlands against mostly aged boys in 1:56.2, last quarter in 28.3. These patches are amazing and ridiculously economic compared to other treatments.”
Richard Jones, standardbred owner
“I just wanted to update you on the use of Equiwinner on my 17 yr old Buckskin mare. I used it as instructed in April. I bred my mare in May and she produced 2 embryos (twins) without super ovulating. We flushed to save both embryos and put each in 2 donor mares . . . so I will have 2 babies in the spring. AND she has NOT tied up again. Again, thank you for such a unique and successful product which I am very pleased to say, I believe that is what produced twins and has stopped the tying up in my 17 yr old mare.”
Sandy Crow, Richland, WA
“I found Equiwinner on line and was desperate to find something to treat my horse who had bled out of his nose after running him hard. I didn’t want to use Lasix. I had scoped and then treated him for 10 days with Equiwinner, rescoped after another hard run, went to the vet within 2 hours and no bleeding. He is happier. He doesn’t dred barrel racing now. He is drinking more than ever before. He doesn’t get so upset before a run, all around better attitude.”
Sunshine, barrel racer in Oklahoma
“Thanks for your tremendous help! I am very happy wih the results of Equiwinner. Fox has had a few head tosses here and there but she has returned to her happy self and is able to go back into training!”

“I want to thank you for the results of this product! I have a quarter horse mare. She was barely walking, when I asked a friend in the US to order Equiwinner patches and send them to me in Brazil. But it solved her problem. This weekend I won a barrel racing show and she got her record time! Perfect! I’m so happy and satisfied! Thanks so much! I recommend Equiwinner patches for sure!”
