Spring is the perfect time of year to get in the habit of doing a deep clean in the barn, whether you’re worried about a virus in your area or not. A sanitizing deep clean can mean preventing bacteria and fungus that cause things like rainrot and scratches, can dissuade or root out disease host pests like mice and bugs, and eliminate any virus strains you may not know are lurking as horses come and go. (Not to mention ridding the barn of cold and flu germs for people after a long winter!)

You should consider a thorough and effective system for each area of the barn: the aisles, stalls, automatic waterers, fans, wash rooms, feed rooms and wash racks. For humans, consider disinfecting surfaces in offices, common areas, doors, bathrooms and around tack rooms or lockers.

The feeling you get when you watch your child ride.

It’s why we do what we do.

It is why we search high and low for the perfect childproof horse.  It is why we give up our Saturday afternoons to cheer them on at a horse show. It is why we spend hours getting stains out of their show clothes. It is why we teach them to hang a fan up on the stall in hot weather. It is why we make sure they learn to keep TWO full buckets of water in the stall. Here at Kentucky Performance Products it is why we developed Summer Games® Electrolyte that will keep the horses in your life hydrated and healthy.   It is why the horse that matter to you matters to us. Not sure which horse supplement best meets your horse’s needs? We are here to help. Contact us at 859-873-2974 or visit our website at
