BREAK FREE™ from Oxalate Pastures
EquiFeast’s BREAK FREE™ is a supplement designed to help keep horses in tip top shape despite consuming high oxalate tropical pasture. It has a role in:
- Maintaining normal tendon, ligament and muscle function for excellent mobility
- Maintaining healthy bones
- Optimising temperament and keeping an excellent attitude to work
- Improving trainability and concentration
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 all the other manufacturers who claim to use chelated calcium. It works in an entirely different way to that proposed by those other manufacturers.
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 promoted 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 pastures ever conducted. 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.

It’s true we really did start seeing massive results within two weeks, the mare is showing positive results in all her aspects like an decrease in fatigue, more alert and better to ride no stumbling
I saw this product advertised on Facebook as I have issues with my horse. Trevor was able to immediately tell me what was wrong with my horse and the best supplement for him. He has been on this for 9 months now and it has literally saved his life. Thank you.
I have been exclusively using EquiFeast break free for 2 years now. It’s an amazing product which has dramatically helped in the management of high coastal oxalate pastures on my property. I use it for all my horses from rehabbing an ott thoroughbred and for my warmblood broodmare who has just had a beautiful healthy colt. We wanted the best start for him in combatting the the oxalates before day one.
I was using another product for big head while i waited for the breakfree to arrive in the mail. When i started using Break free i noticed a difference after a week, where the coat had changed colour, tail.was growing better and holding his head at a more natural position instead of hanging.his head low, i now have every horse we own on breakfree at the moment due to the fantastic season we are having with predominately buffel grass in our paddocks
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.
