RiteTrac is a proprietary blend of ingredients designed to support total digestive tract health. Targeted to benefit both the foregut and hindgut of the horse, RiteTrac works in two distinct ways. First, with its combination of fast-acting antacids and coating agents, RiteTrac quickly neutralizes excess gastric acid, protecting the stomach lining and restoring the normal gastric environment. Second, RiteTrac contains EquiShure®, a time-released hindgut buffer designed to act within the cecum and colon by maintaining optimal pH, thereby reducing the risk of hindgut acidosis.

RiteTrac Digestive Tract Buffer Is Just Right for Elderly Horse

Usually I don't write a review of a product I have used, whether it is good or bad, but I feel I must write one for RiteTrac. My horse, Rockabilly, catastrophically foundered at age 27 in late December, 2007. In early January, 2008 he went to an equine hospital in Nashville, Tennessee, where he spent from January to August 2008. He is now 33 years old and doing fine for himself, and it is with the help of your product RiteTrac.

About a year ago he started having problems with diarrhea a few times every month. Since I take him to the hospital once a month for his checkup and shoeing, I would mention this to the vet and he always told me he didn't want to do anything about it. I knew Billy did not feel good when he had these diarrhea episodes. About four months ago I once again mentioned to the vet about it, and he did an ultrasound and told me Billy's colon was irritated. Then I came into the barn one morning and Billy was lying down. I freaked out. You just cannot catch this horse lying down. He's been in my life 21 years and the only times he has ever laid down was when he was sick.

I was talking to a friend about this problem, and she mentioned RiteTrac. I read where it was good with Billy's type of health issues and decided to try it. I actually was holding my breath wondering if this was going to work or not, but I have to say Billy has been on the RiteTrac for ten weeks now and I am absolutely seeing a difference in him. He feels better, and he looks forward to his meals now, eating with good appetite. He has had no diarrhea at all.

So my 33-year-old horse and I thank you for making this product.
