Equiwinner celebrates 20 years of balancing electrolytes in horses

Mesa, AZ — Known by horsemen and women worldwide as the go-to treatment for electrolyte imbalance-related issues in horses, Equiwinner is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Created in 2002 by Warren Ward of EquusFirst Ltd., an etiologist (one who specializes in the origins/causes of disease) based in the United Kingdom, Equiwinner patches are the result of his research focused on the effect electrolytes have on a horse’s biologic systems and functions.

Since then, Ward’s invention has had a positive impact on the health and performance of tens of thousands of horses around the world, helping them overcome performance-limiting and sometimes life-threatening ailments such as exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH), anhidrosis (non-sweating), tying-up, headshaking, dehydration and more.

“I have used Equiwinner patches for a variety of reasons for over a decade,” said Noel Daley, Standardbred trainer of Dan Patch Award and Breeders Crown winners. “Whether it be for tying up or just to reset horses who just seemed to not be performing at their peak or not acting one hundred percent, I have found using Equiwinner for a week a couple times a year seems to get horses back on the right track.”

Electrolytes are essential for nerve and muscle control throughout the body. If the body is not processing electrolytes effectively, it can lead to reduced functionality or critical system failures. To operate efficiently, all the necessary electrolytes must be available in the right proportions throughout the body.

One Equiwinner treatment includes 10 non-transdermal adhesive patches containing natural balanced electrolytes that are changed daily for 10 days. Rather than transferring electrolytes into a horse’s body, the horse’s body simply recognizes the electrolytes in the patches and responds to them, allowing them to work properly. A single treatment can be effective for months and even up to a year and will never test positive in any racing or equestrian jurisdiction.

Ward first began manufacturing and distributing Equiwinner in 2002 from his base of operations in the United Kingdom and they soon garnered an international following. In 2007, Barbara Socha began distributing Equiwinner in North America under the banner of Signal-Health.

“We are grateful to the horse owners and trainers who were some of the first to try Equiwinner when the product first was introduced to the market,” said Socha. “I think it speaks volumes that many of those first customers are still loyal Equiwinner users today.”
