Hoof and Coat Improvement
|Yes, this is the same horse just six weeks apart! Dressage trainer Jil Beltran’s Grand-Prix Friesian “Waling” in Fallbrook, California, suffered from a severe, undiagnosed condition which expressed itself in mysterious metabolic problems, “bleached coat” and Cushing’s – like symptoms. Besides “Waling” turning black within six weeks he also lost excess weight, got his life-energy back and transformed into a well-muscled horse thanks to Jill’s dedication to the Equolution program.

|This horse had suffered from Sarcomas for many years. The tumors had grown to the size of a tangerine when the Equolution program was started. These photos show the tumors on the chest. Tumors had spread to multiple places on the horse, including the girth area. The tumors in the girth area healed within a month. The photos show the tumor recession in the chest area two months into the protocol.|
Case 1 – Un-diagnosed for 10 years
|Here is my horse’s miracle story. I learned that even the most “mysterious” conditions might heal with the right approach. I was referred to Equolution (across the states) when I’ve almost lost my hope to help my horse. One summer 10 years ago he developed polydipsia/polyuria syndrome. He would drink and urinate endlessly but his skin looked like he was dehydrated. No veterinarian could give me a reason or help. The instructions were to restrict his water intake. We had bad and worse days. My horse was very inconsistent in his performance. One day he would be forward and soft, but the very next day he would turn into a short-strided, dull horse, no able to move at all. I had everything, including multiple veterinarians visits and different diets. Dr. Gabi was the only one who had a solution. The Equolution analysis and program was very comprehensive and professional. I never felt left alone after the first consultation. I was supported via remote counsel. I was prepared that it wouldn’t be an overnight miracle and it would take a minimum of 3 months before we start seeing consistent improvements. We started this program in November 2015. It is April 2016 now. Since February my horse has been doing consistently well, indeed about 3 months after we started the Equolution program. By saying that I am very grateful to Dr. Gabi, I feel like I am not saying enough. I am not a professional rider. I have my horse because I love him so much. He is my heart, my soul mate, my best friend. I just wish I knew about Equolution before we had to go through ten years of suffering. With the program’s long-distance counsel I was able to heal my horse myself. Thank you so very much!

Case 2 – Un-retired!
|Shannon Peters’ horse “Fleur de Selva” had been retired for five years when she put him on the Equolution program. In 2009, this Grand-Prix horse had contracted Lyme disease while showing in Florida. “Fleur De Selva” suffered severe complications from the disease which made him lethargic and unable to perform any kind of work. He existed on stall-rest alone. Cushings-like symptoms and metabolic problems were predominant. Just walking a few steps outside his stall would get this horse out of breath. Shannon started the program in late Spring of 2014 and was diligent in her pursuit. Remarkable was that at this point the horse had been laid up longer than he had been in work under saddle altogether prior to his retirement. In Spring of 2016, during the Del Mar Nationals, Fleur De Selva had a comeback Grand-Prix (photo: Shannon Peters on “Fleur De Selva and Dr. Gabi Gross)|
|Performance problems solved on imported jumper
Hunter-Jumper Trainer Molly Brock explains how she was able to increase performance and improved attitude on a recently imported Warmblood jumper prospect who became lethargic and skinny after he arrived in the US. She reports that he gained back about 150 lbs weight and muscle, he is now energetic under saddle, his performance improved dramatically, his attitude is brighter and he is a happier horse.
Case 2 – Big Pay-Back
|Dressage trainers Rebecca Rigdon-Blake and David Blake explain how Equolution has helped many horses in their stable. The program helped their young Grand-Prix horses to become more focused. In others it removed metabolic issues and stress- related performance problems. If you want to be or stay a leading trainer.. can you afford to NOT use this program?|
Case 3 – Anxiety, Ulcers and Lack of Energy
|Hunter-Jumper trainer Theresa Petyo of Turning Point Farms confesses that she was skeptical at first how this program could possibly produce the promised results. She describes how she then indeed used Equolution successfully to help horses with anxiety, ulcer and performance issues such as increasing energy in lethargic horses or balancing the digestive tract.|
Case 1 – Weather change: Colics No More !
|15-year old Sofia describes how her previously hard to manage 4-year old horse “Sano” within a few days transformed into a mellow, safe and happy horse so that even her little sister could ride him easily. Along with this improvement in attitude the frequent colics from which Sany had suffered, totally disappeared. Sano previoulsy had became colicky every time the weather changed. It is important to remember that many behavioral problems are rooted in an underlying health problem. Your horse doesn’t want anything bad for you. Equolution has helped many of these horses.|
Case 2 – Alive&Kicking
|“I very much recommend Equolution. It is is on the leading edge of physiological and bio mechanical aspects of equine health and performance at ALL levels. I rescued a horse who was days from being euthanize. It is few a far between to find a veterinarian who truly understands the endocrine system as well as the nutrients needed for horses. Dr. Gabi’s passion and expertise clearly has made a difference in a malnourished colicky OTTB that was short from being euthanized. I recommend gathering your barn friends to get on this program BEFORE a health issues impairs the health of your horse.” Brenda Fox, Westlake Village, CA

Case 1 – Muscle Miracle – when all else failed
|In this video-testimonial horse owner Amy describes how her 12 year-old Thoroughbred “Davy” recovered his weight and topline. Amy states hat she was very skeptical at first because everything else had already failed. Veterinarians came out several times, they checked his teeth, fecal tested for hind-gut ulcers and parasites. Davy also went through stomach ulcer treatments and different diets, but the horse kept losing weight. After six weeks on Equolution’s program he gained 60 pounds. Amy states that Davy is a much happier horse. His prior attitude problem is resolved too, he is more willing to go forward and shows much more confidence.|
|I would definitely recommend Dr. Gabi Gross and her products at Equolution to anyone who has a horse or pony. My horse is an off the track Thoroughbred that was losing weight no matter how much I fed him. Despite nine flakes of hay, grain and supplements per day he was still losing weight . I tried every product and approach out there, including veterinary visits. I finally found Dr. Gabi, who came out and personally assessed his exact needs. She showed me things that were affecting his weight which I would have never realized without her expertise. And her suggestions on feed were right on. Within a month his weight was already noticeably improved. Her expertise and fantastic Equolution products are absolutely the reason. The products replaced a huge amount of other supplements that were NOT doing the job. In the end I had a happy, healthy horse who sports great weight and good muscle. And I paid less for her spectacular products than I was paying out before to have a skinny unhappy horse. You can tell that Dr. Gabi has put a lot of research into her product development and it shows. The proof is in the girth!

Cushings / PPID
Case 1 – Cushings No More
|Horse owner Sue describes how she healed her 14 year old horse Dino without medication. She reports that Dino had become lethargic, he lost his topline and he did not shed out his winter coat. Dino then was diagnosed with Cushings Disease. She had an Equolution analysis performed and then followed a 90-day program. She saw results within 6 weeks, when Dino’s energy came back, he build a topline and he also shed his winter coat completely.

Normal Cushings values after four weeks
|Horse owner Leslie describes how a drug-free and natural approach saved her Warmblood from the consequences of a Cushing’s (PPID) diagnosis. Within 4 week of using the Equolution program, her horse’s ACTH values returned to normal values. We actually find that most horses diagnosed today with PPID (Equine Cushings) are misdiagnosed and have something else.|
Case 3 – PPID in Senior Horse
|Horse owner Karen reports how she normalized the ACTH levels in her senior horse with the natural approach of Equolution(R). Her horse had been diagnosed with Equine Cushings Disease (PPID) when she switched him from Pergolide to this approach because he had side effects from the medication.

Healing through “clean” formulas
Thank you Dr. Gabi for all your fabulous insight and products!! Several horses here at Huntington Central Park including mine, are reaping healing, healthy benefits due to your very in depth nutritional knowledge and “clean” products! Dr. Gabi, I can not THANK YOU Enough! Every horse owner should run a hair sample and consult with Dr. Gabi! An ounce of Prevention is worth is weight in Gold! (Michelle Fetters, Huntington Beach, CA)
“The cell analysis performed on my performance horse Gunner was a real eye-opener. Your dedication to research and quality supplements made all the difference in Gunner’s performance at shows. I highly recommend to others to use Equolution to help their horse. It’s such a pleasure to ride a horse that feels good and is focused! Thank you Dr. Gabi and Equolution!” (Vicky Alter, San Juan Capistrano).
“Meeting Dr. Gabi has changed the lives of my horses. I’ve had some challenging ones, that standard veterinary care has not helped. The Equolution program has been able to bring back a horse that has been sick for years, and increase the performance dramatically, of all my other horses. This is brilliant !” (Shannon Peters, Arroyo Del Mar, CA)
Honestly after getting my degree in Equine Science from CSU, and training both Hunter/Jumpers and Race horses this is the only nutritional program (if you can call it that, replacing deficiencies with out over supplementation would be more accurate) that I have ever truly believed in. Look at my horses hooves, coats, or how often they can do their job. That is all you need to know about Dr. Gabi’s approach Equolution. (Sterling Ferguson, Arcadia, CA)
Dramatic improvement in performance and energy
Dr. Gabi Gross offers brilliant insights into not-well understood metabolic equine health. Equoution –all natural herbs and feed recommendations–immediately helped Aristo (DWB national FEI dressage horse) to gain weight and muscle. He’s a much happier and healthier athlete. Dr. Gross’ recommendations come after an in-depth report offering a full interpretation of cell analysis data. In our barn, other horses that adhere to her programs show positive, lasting results. Dr. Gabi combines science with her “horse sense” to design her recommendations for individual cases. She listens, she cares, and she gets results. Aristo was right on track with what she predicted. First he started gaining weight as soon as he finished the detox. He cound not gain weight before, no matter what we tried. We are feeding a lot less (maybe ½) of what we used to feed and he’s thriving. He then converted the weight to muscle starting around three weeks into the program. I came back from a trip and saw a different horse. Then starting about second week in September his energy started to improve a lot, and he’s just going super well now. He had a little set-back in the first week of October. Then Robert Dover in October 12-13 clinic said he’s about three weeks from Grand Prix. So the results are amazing and continue to progress in the right direction. I asked Steffen (Peters) and he really likes what he’s seeing and riding—he said that he has enough energy now.
(Carla Hayes, San Diego, CA)
Just wanted to say thank you for all you do. Levi &I have competed in 5 events out of 13 in 2nd level competition. We’ve won a First Place buckle in Hurry Scurry (a jumping event with 3 jumps). It’s only the second time he’s done the event. We also won a Second Place in Poles 1, and a Third Place in Figure 8 Flag. Your approach really worked. He has been very anxious without Gunner. I’ve been giving him all his supplements. He’d be a wreck if I didn’t. Just wanted to send big hugs and lots of love to you for all you’ve done. (Vicky Alter, Hall Of Fame Gymkhana Trainer, San Juan Capistrano, CA)
Improvement in energy:
Star has got her energy back since I started her on your probiotics engymes and the trace mineral supplements 4 days ago. Will keep you posted on how she does at her first show next Sunday or hope you might get to see her. Will text you the info just in case you want to come and watch, I just love your supplements and have seen a huge change not only in tommy but in Star too. Thanks for all that you do, miss you (Katie Carson, Fallbrook)
Better show scores:
Happy to share that Volare “was on fire” at the show and got a great score of 69.5% @ I-2. Carly was grinning from ear to ear “he has so much energy I can’t stop him!!!” Thank you, Equolution ! (Sylvia Wong, Malibu)
Cushings /PPID :
My thanks to Dr Gabi Gross! In May of 2014 my veterinarian became suspicious my horse may be borderline Cushing’s. His ACTH tested at 63.95. To be sure that it wasn’t just just a seasonal fluctuation we retested in November. The results of the ACTH was then 69.5. A friend told me to contact Dr. Gabi Gross because she had heard that her program had helped some other horses diagnosed with Cushing’s. I sent a sample of Bolshoi’s hair for Dr. Gross to analyze. The results were that he did not have Cushing’s. His adrenal system needed support, which is evidently quite natural for horses as they age. I started on her program in mid December. When he was retested in January the ACTH results were 27.3, back to a normal range. Quick results!
(Leslie Urich, Oregon)
I’ve been so excited about Dr. Gabi’s formula we’ve been feeding Crusader. All of his “growth” have almost disappeared! His former owner said the growth would get dry, crack & bleed that’s how raised it was. With no other treatment except Dr. Gabi’s, the growth is gone and hair is growing back!!! Thank you so much!!! It’s amazing. His skin is healthier, darker, and people are calling him beautiful now (not before people were turned off by all the growths). (Vicky Alter, San Juan Capistrano, CA)
“Dr. Gabi started consulting me with my filly when she came back to race training from a upper suspensory injury. She was tying up frequently and we were considering retiring her. I brought Dr. Gabi on board to help me with her. In short she immediately stopped tying up and has run 9 times at Santa Anita and Del Mar this year! Our trainer has proclaimed her the most resilient horse in his barn. I am 100% sure that is because of Dr. Gabi. She is caring and attentive to animal, trainer and owner. That is a rarity. I can not recommend her enough!” (Sterling Ferguson, Arcadia, CA)
Bleached coat, cushings and metabolic conditions:
Friesian and Horsey Peeps…I just had the most AMAZING, life changing break through with Jorah and I owe it all to Dr. Gabi…LIFE CHANGING, people…LIFE CHANGING…so excited to see Jorah finally healthy and WELL .
Everything was wrong with him. Went through 11 vets who all said he’s fine, meanwhile back at the ranch, Jorah is at death’s door and we finally found Dr. Gabi. Miracle of miracles. Jorah is healing. He’s no longer buckskin, he’s black and soft and shiny and alive and perky and, and, and… 🙂 (Valerie Darlington, Texas)
Colic, Ulcers and Rider Safety
Dr. Gabi is awesome. She can help with Cushings, Ulcers, Energy, metabolism, foot health and so much more. Sano was a wreck from ulcers and frequent colics. It turned out that the ulcers all stemmed from his diet. I was on the verge of selling him because he had gotten to be an over the top aggressive handful and he wasn’t safe for Sophia or me. Within two weeks, he’s turned back into a sweetly behaved horse. Thank you SOOO much Dr. Gabi. What a difference we’ve seen in Sano. He’s had such a dramatic shift in his behavior. He went from colicing, stomping, biting, bucking, rearing, bolting, not letting Sophia get on at the mounting block back to his easy going, sweet eyed ways. We are grateful that he’s feeling SO much better!
(Sanya Walker, San Juan Capistrano)
My daughter’s horse ‘Boo Ray’ was having frequent colics. In an effort to find a cure to this Dr. Gross suggested helping his digestion with enzymes. Since using Equolution’s formula, the colic episodes have completely stopped ! (Kris Burdett, Chino, CA)
Thank you Dr. Gabriele Gross VetMed for your vast knowledge as a vet and expert in your field. Your understanding of what’s behind digest imbalances, instead of just treating the symtoms like others do, has turned my rescued starvation, to be euthanzied OTTB into muscled, sport horse in training. Thank you! (Brenda Fox, Westlake Village)
My quarter horse, Bentley had been struggling with very slow hoof growth and inflamed laminae. We had tried every recommendation from our Vet, but did not see the results we needed. Dr. Gabi did a hair test, and put together a new feeding program designed to target his specific needs. After just 2 months we saw an amazing improvement in his overall condition-but especially his hooves. Our farrier said that this is the best hoof condition that he has seen on Bentley. It is so reassuring to know that Dr. Gabi can specifically identify the issues, design a feeding/supplement program to target those concerns and actually GET RESULTS! I now have a happy, healthy horse – I highly recommend Dr. Gabi. (Susan Gregory, San Juan Capistrano)
Digestive Issues/ Rider safety / Hard keeper
I had the good fortune to recently meet Dr. Gabi at an Equine Nutritional Clinic. My horse, Andy, an Anglo Arab and a hard keeper, had been having digestive issues for quite some time. He was diagnosed with stage 3 ulcers several years ago, and after 2 months on Ulcer guard was put on a diet of 6 flakes Timothy daily ever since. Although he did not suffer any more colic episodes… he did carry his weight in this belly. As a Para-rider, I needed a forward horse that was intuitive to my special needs. Because of childhood polio, I rode dressage without the use of my leg aides. Andy is a very sensitive horse, which made him more susceptible to digestive imbalances. Although a lovely horse, he was not developing to his full potential. Dr. Gabi assessed Andy and immediately saw that although he gobbled down his hay he was not using the food intake properly, and a hair analysis determined his thyroid was extremely active. Consequently he was always hungry but didn’t get enough nutrients. With Dr Gabi’s guidance, we slowly made major changes to his diet. Within a short time, his hay belly began to recede and he appeared less food anxiety. He even accepted the bit better and settled into a lovely collected gate. The difference was truly amazing. I am thankful to Dr. Gabi and would highly recommend using her expertise to help any horse become happy and health. She has a unique knowledge base to help our equine partners and truly understands their metabolic needs. Dr. Gabi is a caring and knowledge professional and the Equine community is very fortunate to have her as a resource.
Digestive Issues/Hard Keeper:

(Maurren Hall, San Juan Capistrano,CA)
“I will say Dr.Gabby is awesome from when she first helped Tommy to now I will say I haven’t had to call the vet out to give Tommy hock injections or any joint supplements. Tommy moves really nicely with his small diet change and his few supplements and I’m proud to say thanks to Dr.Gabby and the help from Jill and my mom, I’m going to get Tommy into a few schooling shows and maybe try a show. Love you guys” (Katie Carson, Reins Therapeutic Riding Center, Fallbrook, CA)
Lethargy, Shortness of breath, endocrine problems:
“After five veterinary clinics and Universities had tried without success, Dr. Gabi found what was wrong and saved my horses life
(Jil Beltran, Gold Medalist , Fallbrook, CA)
Endocrine Problems after import, no stamina
I am honestly not sure how to write this. Here goes…I imported a lovely Oldenburg mare, Elfenlady, from Germany two years ago. Upon her arrival to my barn, following Quarantine, it tuns out she had had a severe laminitic event while in quarantine. We believe this was a stress founder as knowing her as I now do very well, she is the most sensitive horse I’ve ever known in every sense. A little while into treatment, I was introduced to Dr. Gabrielle Gross DVM. We did the Equolution testing and Dr. Gabi determined that Elf had some endocrine deficiencies. Adrenals and Thyroid were wavering. She prescribed a protocol that included her custom Esprit and a mineral formula. On the outside looking at the horse, the immediate difference everyone can see is how amazing their coat suddenly becomes when the missing minerals are put back into place. I know this was also paramount in healing her feet. Elfenlady has remained on the formulas for the past year and a half.
My observation with the Esprit is as follows. As her feet healed and she was able to get back into work, we had noticed early on that she had no stamina whatsoever. She would quickly become winded and could not recover. Early on we kept repeating blood work thinking it was something deeper and to rule anything else out. Upon increasing the Equolution Esprit, Elfen’s energy and stamina slowly improved. Soon she was to the point she was seemingly “normal”. Due to circumstance this past winter, we had simply forgotten to order a refill of the Esprit at the subsequent time that the herbs were in high demand, so there was a month and a half that she was off of it. Her stamina tanked. She went back to being winded easily and no stamina to speak of. When we did get our Esprit back in stock I somehow overlooked starting her back onto the loading dose. Weeks in it dawned on me that I had neglected to do that. Everyone had panicked a bit thinking possibly something was very wrong with her. I myself have had an extensive medical history with Adrenal fatigue and I quickly recognized in her what I experience myself and realized we simply forgot to load her up after she had effectively had an Adrenal crash. We then bumped her up to the loading dose of Esprit again. Upon increasing this she was back to her “normal” self within a few weeks. We are now able to have her back on the normal maintenance dose. I am now very diligently making certain that we keep her on this amazing formula! It is so very important to notice every little detail and change in your horses and always trust your gut if you feel something is wrong. It is also to your extreme advantage to have amazing healers such as Dr. Gabi at your fingertips! I am so very blessed to be able to work with her!

Lethargy, Frequent Infections, Toxicity Issues
“I had a cell analysis performed by Dr. Gabi on my very sick horse. I had various vets from my area try to figure our why the horse was so sick. Dr Gabi was the only one to diagnose the problem correctly. Following her recommendations for my horse, I now have a completely healthy horse, who looks and acts better than when I purchased him. She is a genius!!!” (Laurie Walker, Chatsworth)
Dear Dr. Gross, thank you so very much for actually finding a solution to my horse’s “headshaking” condition. I had spent alot of time and money with different veterinarians trying to solve the “headhsaking” condition that he had developed. Some suggested he was a headshaker caused by nerve damage in his nose while others said it was just his bad attitude. I was totally frustrated and was on the verge of getting rid of the horse when my trainer suggested I contact you and see if you could help. After your examination, you swiftly and accurately determined what was causing these problems and came up with a viable solution. We have had him on your prescribed herbal remedies for about 6 weeks with remarkable results. The horse no longer shows any signs of “headshaking”. His attitude has totally changed and he has resumed a normal work schedule.I am so impressed with the cellular findings. These findings pinpointed the exact deficiencies in his diet. These results confirmed what you had already suspected. Once again I want to thank you for saving this horse.
Sincerely, Corinne Leslie (Chino, CA)
Dear Dr. Gabi, I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for giving of your time on Monday. Your phone consultation just blew me away! It was such a pleasure to speak with you. Your warmth and genuine care for the horse is just incredible. I am so excited about all the information you gave me and can’t wait to get Howie started down the path to better health!! Thank you, again, Dr. Gabi and I hope one day to meet you in person!!! Warmest regards, Elizabeth Duthrie (Northern CA)

Love for horses and wanting the best for them put us in Pomona on the same day, chance put Dr Gabi on the schedule before the lecture I came to see, and it was fate got me there early to hear just a part of Dr Gabi’s discussion, but it was gut instinct in me that recognized truth behind her words and led me to meet and collaborate with Dr Gabi to make the world better for horses and humans.
