    I switched from a mineral I had been using for two years. It was a hard switch but my horses just kept having weird things come up that I kept thinking is not normal. I’ve been on this supplement for over 6 months now and I will never go back. My horses look and feel amazing. I now have all my horses in my barn on it as well as all my boarders! Lots have switched off grain and everyone looks healthier and acts happier! Everyone is so greatful with the results!

    Best supplement I’ve ever used on my horses. Their coats look amazing, and their energy level and overall health is very stable.

    Recommended to me by a trainer and I began using on both my horses. They did not have problems to begin with, but I used it for “insurance” for their overall wellbeing along with added magnesium (also from the makers of California Trace). About 4 weeks ago, one of my horses had a terrible injury with deep penetrating wounds to her stifle and axillary area on her right side. I truly believed it would take 2 months to heal into surface wounds because they were so deep. At 4 weeks, we are already there. I believe the good nutrition (healing from the inside out) provided by Trace Plus provided the basis for a much quicker healing and recovery time than even the vet anticipated.

    Based on what I’d heard, I was a bit worried that my horses wouldn’t consume CA Trace Plus pellets, so while all four of them were around the hay bale, I gave them each a handful. Three of them badgered me for more. The other one ate it but wasn’t super enthused about it. I put 1/4 scoop on her feed that evening, and she at it all. I’ll bump them all to the full serving over the next few days.

    My gelding loves the CA Trace Plus. He really gobbles it up. I had mentioned in a previous review that my orders didn’t seem to be lasting a full 10 days. Jennifer from the company immediately reached out to me to see what could be the problem and to offer to weigh my next order as well as send some extra samples. I told her not to waste samples on me but save them for the potential new customers.

    I received my order the next day (which is today) and she did send me some extra samples anyway, which I think goes way above & beyond in excellent customer service. Further, she weighed the bag and put a sticky on to let me know.

    I’m not sure why the last bag did not stretch the whole 40 days, and I am thinking I have to assume “operator error”, maybe I didn’t have level scoops, not sure. But I can’t say enough about the integrity of this awesome company.

    Highly recommend the product and these wonderful people running the company. Thank you again Jennifer & CA Trace. <3

    Best hoof supplement out there for hoof health. Both of my horses have been on for 2 months and I’ve noticed great improvements in hoof and frog growth, mane and tail growth, and sole depth. Both can now go on gravel with no sensitivity barefoot. Even in a very wet and muddy Washington winter I am seeing thrush go from 6 out of 8 hooves to 1 out of 8 hooves!

    I have two navicular horses and one with laminitis . I switched them from grain to timothy hay pallets and cal trace plus and their hooves improved a lot. They feel great with lots of energy. Im very satisfied.

    We have fed both of our draft horses hay and Cal Trace +, all year long in Alaska. They are extremely happy and healthy boys who work hard and love to play hard too. Highly recommend this product and the company for it’s truly professional customer service. Thanks for building a life long relationship.

    I have been feeding Cal Trace + for nearly 2 years to all of our horses due to struggling with one of them being diagnosed with “navicular”. I had been using a Balancer and saw great improvement in overall health, hooves, and coat once I switched, in addition to my gelding improving with his condition. My boarder decided to switch her horses and we saw a big improvement in her mare that has ring bone.

    I have a sweet gelding with navicular and soft tissues injuries prior to me owning him. He is also metabolic and has Cushings. I switched him to timothy hay, timothy pellets, flax seed, and cal trace plus. I do add magnesium as it has helped but this supplement is worth every penny. I know financially it isn’t always easy to spend this kind of money BUT you will save money in the short and long run. Kai’s feet were a mess and this supplement helped him develop beautiful sound hooves. I am writing a review because I temporarily did not feed this (about 6 months) and I noticed a horrible decline. Once back on this supplement his hoof is growing in so much better. THANK YOU CALIFORNIA TRACE PLUS!!

    I like this product and I feel her hooves grow better now. However the pellets are now smaller than when I first ordered. This mean increased surface area and much more of the product is lost to powder at the bottom of the bag which my horse cannot have due to heaves. I preferred the larger pellet.

    I’m a believer! I have a 32 year old mare that went through laminitis this summer, it was horrible, all 4 feet. I have owned her for 22 years and she has never been lame a day. Needless to say after this her hooves were shot, mushy,soft,infected and basically falling apart. My farrier was afraid to work on her because they were so unstable. I started her on CalTrace plus. THE RESULTS ARE UNREAL! Please hear me, THIS PRODUCT IS THE REAL DEAL, IT ABSOLUTELY WORKS! Her hooves are trimmable now and she is walking sound. The growth acceleration was amazing and my farrier was impressed with the amount of sole he had to work with and the overall stability of the foot. All this on my FIRST BAG!!!!40 day supply.
    She didn’t immediately love the taste but she is EXTREMELY sceptical of all feed changes and anything that could be medicinal so I mixed a few pellets in her feed for a week until she was used to it. No issue now. She actually played and bucked this week, hitting gears she hasn’t touched in YEARS! It does my heart good to see her doing well enough to play. Thank you CalTrace!!!

    After doing a ton of research I started my herd on Cal Trace Plus last year. I have a suspected PSSM mare who kept tying up, which is an awful, awful thing to endure. I am a barefoot trimmer and after watching my own herd thrive on the CTP, their hooves are thick and solid, their coats are full and shiny, and the old horses are energetic, which is so awesome, I now recommend CTP to all my clients and I have seen an incredible difference in their horses too. In fact I have a client who calls CTP a God send. My mare isn’t tying up anymore which I suspect is in large part due to CTP.
    When people ask me about their horses going barefoot I tell them to feed the hooves with California Trace Plus. Feeding the hooves is such a huge part in having successful barefoot horses. Thanks for the product. Its awesome.

    My horse transitioned to barefoot with Cal trace plus and he’s doing great.

  16. Tracy Skinner (verified owner)

    I am so relieved I found the recommendation for California Trace Plus. It meets all the needs I wanted for my horses for balancing their forage based diet and the results I’ve seen in just a few months is amazing! My mare is going to be able to go barefoot this summer for the first time in at least 10 years! Thank you for this product!
