BREAK FREE™ from intermittent lameness, short striding and Big Head
EquiFeast’s BREAK FREE™ is a supplement designed to help keep horses free from the symptoms associated with the consumption of tropical pastures:
- Intermittent lameness
- Spooky behaviour
- Short striding and muscle tension
- Poor temperament and poor attitude to work
- Trainability and concentration
- Big Head
We were invited to Australia to see if our unique approach to calcium might just help horses that were not coping with oxalates despite the existing products in the market. Our technology passed that test and only then did we manufacture and sell products in Australia. BREAK FREE delivers 24 times as much chelated calcium for about 5 times the cost of products from other manufacturers who claim to use chelated calcium. It works in an entirely different way to that proposed by those other manufacturers. Click here for our explanation of how BREAK FREE works.
Other firms have hugely mislead both riders and the veterinary profession about their product composition. They have implied that their products look like BREAK FREE when actually they are nothing like it at all. I guess that is flattering. For example Jenquine's Bone Formula Forte was promted as having "high levels of chelated calcium" yet has just 1.65% of its calcium from a chelated source. That compares with 100% of the calcium in BREAK FREE and BREAK FREE Elite. EquiFeast products are in a class of their own. There are no other comparable products on the market. Tragically we had to complain to Ad Standards for Jenquine to make their advertising more honest. We hated having to have taken this action but, with a competitor trying to steal our clothes and refusing to engage in discussions, we felt we had to take more robust action - both for ourselves, the horses and all of the misled vets and riders.
BREAK FREE was developed following the only Australian field trials carried out by any manufacturer that tested for PTH, Vit D and Calcitonin. That was also the only trial to use the quantities of chelated calcium we believe to be necessary from our 25 years' experience selling it. We do not claim these trials to be science but they are the only controlled experimentation on chelated calcium for oxalate poisoning ever conducted. Watch the trials video here. Please excuse Eloise's English accent :). When requested by the Ad Standards Industry Jury, Jenquine offered no trial data to support their product - despite claiming on their web site to have clinical trials.

I have been using break free for just over a month. I have seen a huge improvement in our mares attitude and willingness to work. Going from a cranky horse refusing to move. The farrier commented how great her feet are and the body worker how soft her muscles and body feel. I will continue to use this. The only downside is the cost to load the product.
Very noticeable difference in body condition and behavior since starting 2 year old on this product two months ago.
Equifeast's Break Free is easy to use and all the horses find it palatable - even the fussy ones. We have one horse that has suffered from intermittent lameness for years - she is showing steady improvement after just a few weeks.
I love this product, I seen a huge difference in my Mare after 2 weeks and she is still getting better every day. Would definitely buy again
very happy with this product, has made a difference to my horse suffering from chronic lameness.
Best calcium supplement ever! I was recommended break free from my sister in law who is a horse trainer, for my tb who was short stepping, cranky and not quite himself. He was displaying all the attributes of an oxalate affected horse dispite being on other forms of calcium. Since starting him on break free he has improved out of sight and is performing at his best! We live in costal nsw so have high oxalate pastures. I now keep all my horses on break free to prevent big head and oxalate poisoning. Highly recommended product!
I have only had my Purebred Gelding on Break Free for just over 2 weeks and I am already noticing an improvement in his general attitude. He was never a grumpy or spooky horse until a few months ago and so I did what most people do, put him on a Calmative product which only made him worse over a period of about a month - 6 weeks. After reading about this product, all the symptoms pointed to Oxalate Poisioning. After a very informative talk with Trevor I have changed his diet completely and he is on Break Free and the Multi Vit Supplement. I wont know for sure if it is working until I take him out and put the pressure on his, but so far, I am very impressed. Will keep using this for sure.
I have been using Breakfree on my horse myself and my 11 month old puppy. I have noticed a difference in calmness in both the puppy and the horse and as far as myself I have noticed I am not craving sweet foods as much as I use to and have actually lost weight. I could be happier with EquiFeast Break Free.
This product has been a life saver for my mare. The very best product I have found to combat oxalate poisoning.
