    Renew Gold (packaged in CA) says it is non-GMO. It is rice bran, flax, yeast, and Coolstance. Let me know your thoughts.

      Hi Linda,

      I didn’t include any supplements in this list though I know there are certainly some good organic and non-GMO supplements out there. This sounds like it may be one of them.

      Renew Gold is excellent. Been using since it came out and had a great discussion about it with the inventor/owner. Also, you don’t have to feed as much to get a good result. My horse loves it too. Couldn’t say enough good things and have encouraged feed stores in my area to carry it.

      We use Renew Gold Sr (had the probiotics too) and love it!

    Hi Casie. Great article. But, it’s unfortunate that you can’t list Cool Stance as “organic” simply because it’s not been Certified Organic. The truth is it is probably more organic than some of those that make your list! The coconuts used in Cool Stance are harvest by hand in Papua New Guinea. There are absolutely no chemicals or pesticides used on the coconut trees there (or anything nearby). And, it is processed in a plant (also in Papua New Guinea) dedicated to ONLY coconut meal. So, no chance of cross-contamination. Just thought you might want to know for future reference! Warmly, Kim (Stance Equine USA Distributor)

      Good to know–thank you, Kim. 🙂

      Hi Kim: I just started using Coolstance. How much are you feeding to an adult horse in light work? I am giving 1/2 the amount and see improvement in hooves, coat, and mobility in my 28 y/o Arab

    What a great read! Thank you for sharing. I’ve been feeding my horse Crypto Aero wholefood Horse Feed for over a year and he has never looked or felt better.

    I had fought itching tail hives sores for several seasons. Vet told me allergies to no seems. Used everything I could to give myboy relief. I changed to Triple Crown Natural pellets and in two months he started to clear and stopped itching and rubbing his tail! Thank Goodness forTriple Crown Naturals.

    Danco Forage – Omnis Complete Performance Cubes are Non-GMO

  6. Candice says:

    Thrive feed is another.

  7. Ashley says:

    Roasted To Perfection Natural is a non-gmo feed and is no corn or soy. Ranch way also sells organic grain and alfalfa pellets

  8. Helen Bird says:

    I have been trying to find organic timothy pellets. I have been using Standlee but I called them to see what weed killer they use and was told it is called Sencor. I have to say that what I read about Sencor made me not want to feed my horses their pellets anymore. I really don’t know what to do as our options are very limited and expensive. I have used Renew Gold for years and have heard amazingly good things about it’s production.

    • Candice says:

      I called the Ontario company mentioned in this post and their products are sold under the Triple Crown Naturals label in the US. I think they have Timothy cubes.

    As of 2013 Standlee alfalfa pellets are no longer gmo free. They were supposed to give notice of this but did not. They do address it in their Q&A .

  11. Jacque says:

    I didn’t see Wild Fed listed!

  12. Tina Spangler says:

    So glad you included dynamite on the non GMO but they are also a certified organic mill! Very few in the US so it’s a big deal! If you want to add that to your blog list.

  13. Teresa says:

    Hi Cassie,
    Thanks so much for your informative post! Much appreciated.
    My husband’s a vet, has Hashimoto’s, became quite ill. We removed gluten and dairy.
    After 10 yrs of acute, and a lifetime of mild symtoms – he’s completely healtyh now. Wheat gluten and gliadin trigger most auto-immune diorders….then they start to stack on one another.
    For an easy watch, What’s With Wheat documentary, Netflix, and read plant paradox. We all did it in our family. It’s going to be the wave of the future, as we aren’t supposed to eat wheat in most cases.
    Thanks again, and ps, try it for a few days – if you are sensitive to gluten or gliadin, you’ll feel better and lose a host of symptoms. Jamie

      Hi Jamie, Thanks for your comment. I have Hashimoto’s as well and have been GF for about 7 years now. My son is also GF and we’re in the process of transitioning my daughter (it’s been much more difficult with her as she is a big time foodie!). I’m definitely a believer in the connection between certain foods and disease.
