    El Novio del Conquistador 2011 Sixth Place National Champion Paso Pleasure Geldings for Gold at the Paso Fino Grand National Championship Show held in Memphis, TN. Owned by First Class Horse Complex, LTD, Bristol, WI.

    El Novio is a 10 year old paso fino gelding. Shortly after coming to First Class Horse Complex, Novio was diagnosed with ulcers. After treatment and changing his feeding program to Essential K and Kalm N' EZ, Novio was able to become the horse he was born to be.

    Ever since I changed from Purina to Tribute's Essential K, I've had the best results. My horse looks better, acts better, and I've shaved a full second off my time due to the added muscle gained by using Essential K.

    I am writing you today as a very satisfied customer of the Tribute Equine Feed! We have been using your products for three years now with great success. My daughter is a member of Ohio High School Rodeo Association, National High School Rodeo Association, as well as Ohio Jr. Rodeo Association. Last year Jessica competed with her nineteen year old pony, Skyler from March to October participating in two to three weekend rodeos a month, which consisted of two to three rodeos a weekend, traveled to Gillette, WY after qualifying for NHS finals Rodeo, went to State Fair …won the pony pole bending, then came home to our county fair and did very well there as well. I tell you all that because Tribute Feed provided Skyler with the energy and nutrition to compete from local, state, and national levels with thousands of miles of travel and not grow tired or look ragged. She looked as good at the beginning of the year as she did at the end of the season. I always tell people to give the feed a try. We love using the Kalm Performer during heavy competing and then as things slow down in the winter we transition to Kalm’n EZ Pelleted.

    Jessica is competing in the OHSRA Finals Rodeo on June 16-18th. As of today, she is standing in first place in pole bending having only given up eleven points throughout the season with times in the low 21’s and upper 20’s. Jess & Skyler are in the top six in goat tying & barrel racing as well as in the hunt for All Around Cowgirl, standing in first going into finals.

    I have attached some pictures of Jess and Skyler at the National High School Finals Rodeo- Gillette, WY, at the Ohio State Jr. Fair, and Ohio Jr. Rodeo.

    Thank you so much!

    I started feeding Kalm Ultra to my two Arabians only a week ago. My gelding, Rhafiik, was a rescue and has continued to be a hard keeper and I couldn't get him in the condition I wanted to on the other high quality feeds I tried. My feed store recently started carrying Tribute Feeds, and I was excited to try Kalm Ultra. Can you believe that after barely one week on this feed, he looks like a new horse! He has put on some nice weight and his coat is so glossy. Both horses look the best they have ever looked. I thank you for producing such an excellent product. I have never seen any feed have an effect on a horse so quickly.

    Two years ago, my husband and I were given a yearling buckskin that the owner was having trouble affording. He was diagnosed with being HYPP positive. We consulted Lindsey at our feed store (Ottawa Lake Co-op). She has gotten us on the Kalm N EZ. We have no issues with his fits and episodes any longer. Thank you so much for offering this food for him.

    Congrats to Amanda Moore and her filly "Shocked ToBe Invited" on their 7th place finish in the Open English Lunge line at the 2010 Quarter Horse Congress!

    Amanda wrote, "I have had great results and love the way my horses look. Recently I showed my yearling at Congress in the Open English Lunge Line Stakes Class. I am a novice Ammy and to be honest it was my first quarter horse show (I've been showing apps). I have to credit Tribute for helping my filly look her best and helping us to earn a Top Ten finish with a 7th place."

    I have recently moved my beloved horse to a barn that feeds Tribute. He is gaining weight and looks amazing. I love your feed.

    I would like to thank the Tribute team and especially Larry Belluscio and Dr. Dan Burke for their help in correcting the contracted tendons on my now two year old filly, Shesa Cool Heir. With their help and the use of Essential K, I now have her legs corrected and after about 6 weeks of fitting, we earned our first reserve championship! She continues to grow and build muscle, and with the addition of the K Finish, she is coming on strong. We are looking forward to our next show. She is doing great!

    I would like to thank Tribute feeds for making such great quality products that my horses and I love. That's why I choose Kalm Ultra for them because it gives such a great balance of low protein and high fat with great key nutrients in the food for the horses to keep them at a high performance level.

    I just need to share with you that I now have two amazingly beautiful fillies. They are the result of the Tribute feed program. Both were born with outstanding bone and muscle. The foaling facility in Kentucky said they are the best foals at the farm by far! Thanks for your help in making this happen.

    We just wanted to send a comment to your company that we really enjoy your feed. We run a reining training operation (Pagh Reining Cowhorses) in Ocala, Florida. We buy Tribute Kalm Ultra from Berrettini Feeds. We have been using it for about a year now, and we see the results. Our horses are slick and fat and have great stamina. Rest assured when your horse is in training here, they are getting the best food we can buy!!

    We are getting our first order tomorrow. I am very impressed with your Middlefield branch! Very nice people and they are even going to deliver our order to us and then will deliver every 2 weeks. I know that 10 bags is not a larger order, but this does say something about your company. Thank you.

    Dr. Burke,

    We last communicated in November '08 when I sought your expertise in regards to my saddlebred who had recently endured a laminitic episode. Oscar is now doing GREAT!! In fact, I rode him light yesterday. He's bright and alert, engaged with life and requires very little pain management. His coat is glossy. Thank you Dr. Burke!

    "Skeets Niffty" won two Open Divisions at the May 2009 Ohio Valley Reining Horse Derby in Jackson, Ohio. Terry & Brandy Murphy of Murphy Performance Horses from Grove City, Ohio show Skeets. In the background is the "Tribute Tough Enough to Wear Pink" manure spreader. Skeets has been on Kalm N EZ for 5 weeks now and has shown excellent results. Skeets has had improved attitude, performance, and earnings.

    We are feeding Tribute Maturity to an 18 year old thoroughbred to keep his weight up. We are getting great results and are very happy with the product.

    When I first started riding Huntin in Color as a gelding, he was thin and pointy all over his back and he needed lots of muscle.

    In less than 2 months of feeding him Essential K GC with oats, he was in great shape! Not only did his body condition improve, but his haircoat was awesome!

    Huntin in Color became a two time 2008 Pinto World Champion.

    I'm new at feeding Tribute feeds but I love the Kalm Performer. I'm a professional barrel racer and I love how my horses perform and look. My stallion (Dash of Indian Money) even looks and acts terrific on your feed!

    This beautiful little lady is Primero Chase Maharet. She won 5th place at the Fino 2007 Paso World Championships in Pleasure Schooling Fillies 41- 60 months.

    All the horses above have been on Tribute's Essential K and Kalm N' EZ daily. The foals have never eaten any food but Tribute for their entire lives (this includes gestation).
