Dynamite Specialty donates a percentage of natural horse feed, probiotics and vitamin sales to horse rescues across the country to celebrate Year of the Horse.

“Seeing horses benefit from our natural horse feed, horse probiotics and other products has been one of the most rewarding parts."

MERIDIAN, Idaho -- Horse rescue organizations across the country have received contributions of $22,956 in cash and over $3,500 in horse probiotics and other nutritional products as Dynamite Specialty Products concludes its Year of the Horse celebration.

Dynamite donated $7,427 to RVR Horse Rescue in Riverview, Fla.; $5,915 to Strawberry Mountain Mustangs in Roseburg, Ore.;
$5,649 to Blue Star Equiculture in Palmer, Mass.; and $3,965 to Shiloh Acres Horse Rescue in Ault, Colo.

Dynamite, which makes natural horse feed, horse probiotics, and other nutritional supplements, based its donations on the sales of selected products. Dynamite customers nominated more than 100 horse rescues across the country for donations.

RVR Horse Rescue, located on a 48-acre farm, rescues and rehabilitates horses and places them for adoption. It works closely with the local sheriff’s department to rescue neglected horses, as well as to save horses from being sold for slaughter. The attached video, “Toby’s First Day,” is an example of RVR’s work.

Blue Star Equiculture raises its own alfalfa on a 129-acre organic farm powered by horses and humans. Working with local historical societies, it offers horse-drawn tours to increase awareness of the role horses have played in history. Blue Star is a sanctuary committed to helping horses, especially working horses, live out their days in comfort and dignity.

Shiloh Acres is a small, family-owned horse rescue dedicated to helping slaughter-bound, abused, neglected and unwanted horses. It is next to a livestock auction yard, the last stop for many animals, including horses. “Driving by this lot is a reminder of why Shiloh Acres does the work it does,” said Callie Novak, Dynamite CEO.

Strawberry Mountain Mustangs, an all-breed horse rescue and rehabilitation center, helped with the passage of a law that made equine abandonment a crime in Oregon. Grace, a mare featured on their Facebook page, was the subject of a court case leading to the new state laws.

Dynamite sponsored several horses at these selected rescues with custom product packages during the Year of the Horse Project. These packages included horse probiotics as well as the Equine Foundation Program and other products selected for the horse’s specific needs.

“For those of us who love and cherish horses, it is hard to face the fact that there are so many horses that have been abandoned, abused or neglected. Seeing these horses benefit from our natural horse feed, horse probiotics and other products has been the most rewarding part of the Year of the Horse Project,” said Callie Novak, Dynamite CEO.

Dynamite’s donations reflect a percentage of the sales of TNT®, a horse nutritional supplement, and DynaPro® horse probiotics, as well as a matching cash contributions.

“TNT is the base of our Equine Foundation Program and is an all-in-one, easy-to-feed supplement. It seemed appropriate to select TNT as the foundation of the Year of the Horse program,” Novak said.

“Our vision is to ‘improve the lives of all creatures by empowering people with the truth and knowledge about health,’” she added. “The recoveries at these horse rescues show how nutrition can improve health. Horse probiotics, for example, are not as well known as some of our other products yet they are vital to proper nutrition.”

As a result of the Year of the Horse project, several horse rescues have begun selling Dynamite products as an adjunct to their fund-raising programs. “This has been a win-win situation for all of us,” Novak said.
