Stance Equine was established over 20 years ago by keen horseman Dr Tim Kempton. He has competed at many levels throughout Australia and also rode on the around Australia horse ride, coinciding with the opening of the Sydney 2000 Olympics. He has ridden several miles throughout outback Australia as well as the United States. During his years spent working as a research scientist, Tim began to doubt the logic of feeding high grain feeds to horses, realising that it affected his competition horses in a negative manner. They would portray hot and fizzy behaviour and cramp up when in heavy work. He began to carry out research into how high starch diets affect horse behaviour and performance and evaluated various different feeds, including rice bran and coconut meal.
These days, it's widely accepted that high non-structural carbohydrate (NSC) feeds contribute to obesity and various metabolic disorders in horses, such as gastrointestinal ulcers, colic, insulin resistance, lameness, EMS, laminitis and Cushing’s disease. Tim researched coconut meal and coconut oil in horse nutrition back in the 1980’s, discovering that good quality coconut meal has a high amount of digestible energy as well a low NSC, making it an excellent feed for most horses. CoolStance coconut is now fed widely throughout the world.
