FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips are self-adhesive strips that promote optimum respiratory health of equine athletes and help prevent exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage.
FLAIR Strips support the nasal passages during exercise and improve the horse’s airflow when it needs oxygen most. Unlike humans, horses can only breathe through their noses. As horses begin to breathe hard during exercise, the soft tissues overlying the nasal passages are sucked in, reducing the airway diameter. This reduction in diameter causes greater resistance of airflow into the lungs.
FLAIR Strips are proven to reduce airway resistance during exercise. By doing so, FLAIR Strips help prevent fatigue related injuries, protect the lungs from injury and promote optimal athletic performance. Allison wants to do everything possible to ensure her horses are healthy during competition

HAYGAIN is the revolutionary hay steamer that conditions hay into dust-free, highly palatable forage thus enhancing your horse’s health and respiratory performance.
“I first became interested in the HAYGAIN Hay Steamer for Destination Known, a top level horse that I have with allergy and breathing issues. Although I was thrilled with the results that I have seen in this horse, it didn’t take long for me to realize how well all the horses in my barn do on the steamed hay. I have struggled with maintaining weight and appetite during the competition season on my other top level partner, Arthur. Arthur has blossomed on his steamed hay. A horse that is generally very picky, now dives into his hay. The well being of all my equine athletes is paramount. The delicate balance between keeping the competitive edge on my horses and ensuring their long-term stability is a big concern of mine. By using the HAYGAIN Hay Steamer I have confidence that my horses are getting the cleanest forage possible ensuring their respiratory health and the hay’s nutritional value.”
