Nestled in the scenic ranchlands of Central Oregon, Horse Guard is a 2nd generation equine nutrition company operating on the principle that good nutrition is an essential part of horsemanship and horse health. Founder Del Johnson started Horse Guard in 1978 after his passion for horses lead him to pursue a Masters's Degree in equine nutrition. Today, daughters Kelsey (PhD Equine Nutritionist, with research on selenium supplementation in horses ) and Ty (Marketing Director, Cal Poly graduate) are carrying on Horse Guard's tradition of excellence in making products that are on the cutting edge of equine nutritional science. We are proud of our many achievements in the field of Equine Nutrition, including:
- The introduction of the very first OTC equine selenium supplement
- The first complete supplement for hoof health
- The first weight gain product
- The first supplement with organic selenium.
- As horse owners and riders, we care deeply about the quality of our products, using only the highest-graded pharmaceutical ingredients in all our supplements. We continue to make customer service and horse health our highest priorities.
