I swapped to Saracens Show Improvers Pencils two years ago, following recommendation from a rep at Your Horse Live. My 24 year 3/4 TB looks amazing. I have struggled to keep weight on him and now he even has a slight crest on his neck. He feels more supple than he has done for years and his coat is gleaming. He still competes at BD Elementary gaining over 65%.

I've found the Show Improver Cubes to be really beneficial for the younger horses that are starting to step up their level of work or needing more top line
condition. They produce a unique non-heating effect that, with the added Equi-jewel, helps to encourage body condition and supports muscle
development. I highly recommend these Show Improver Cubes! I have a forward thinking horse, in super condition who is sensible.

I have used Saracen feeds for years and I tried these with my Ex Racer, he needed condition. He looked fantastic, with great shine but even in moderate work and hunting twice a week he became a bit too hot headed. It was a real shame it affected him that way as its a great product for improving condition and build.

I used these for my highly strung fussy eater to get a bit of extra weight on for the season, I have to say they did the [censored], she always ate her feeds (rare!)and looked wonderful so I kept her on them. I highly recommend them

I have a stressy middleweight working hunter who loses condition during the busy show season, he is difficult to feed as he either [censored]s his stack or lacks energy for the bigger tracks. I have found Show Improver pencils plus extra Equijewel when needed ticks all the boxes. I have a shiny healthy relaxed horse with enough energy to do his [censored]. Have switched all my horses over now & couldn't be happier. Saracen's helpline people are helpful & extremely knowledgeable & now I have a local stockist I feel my feed worries are over.

I've used Saracen feeds for some time and when it comes to needing condition without fizz, show improver pencils hit the nail on the head. My TB is fit and healthy but just needed that little bit extra for showing and within a couple of months of feeding a low ration my horse looked amazing and we secured our place at the TARRA in-hand and ridden championship at Equifest. Thank you Saracen!

Absolutely love this feed. Have fed all different brands of conditioning cubes but never seemed to put on the amount of condition you'd expect.
After speaking with the lovely ladies in the Saracens care team I started my horse on these pencils and not looked back. He looks fantastic. Not only is his top line so much better, his coat and whole body looks shiney and healthy.
I wouldn't change from feeding Saracens

My tb who I have always struggled to keep weight on has looked fab since being on these. I can't recommend them enought. They are brilliant. He looks like a totally different horse I am so pleased. Everyone on the yard has noticed the difference in him.

Saracens recommended this for my Arab X Saddlebred youngster who needed to put some extra condition on prior to being backed. In just a few weeks you could notice the difference and he filled out really well even through the winter. Great quality feed that does what it says on the bag.

Have always been really pleased with Saracen feeds these pencils were no different. Have a 5 yr old thoroughbred that I was worried about over heating but really needed some condition - these did the trick. His temperament hasn't changed at all but in three months he's put on the condition he needed and is maintaining it. People are commenting on how well he looks.

We remain firm advocates of Saracen's feeds (and the help your nutritionist provided - which was spot on!). Grayswood Orlando (aka Ginger!) arrived in our yard in Feb having been in a field for the best part of a year - and having not competed at this level. Feeding was a key part of his transformation into International Pony. Jenny Ward and the pony Selectors warned us it would be a tall order to produce a pony fit enough in time for this summer (let alone the training needed). We feel Saracens helped us on that journey and remain a partner!
Angus and Ginger were 3rd last week at Hickstead CDIP and won the Pony Medium Championship at the BYRDS Home International the week before.
