wb-share-your-story-win-900x900Equine Colic Awareness Month is all about community and education. It’s in the stories that we build a community. And it’s in this community that we can educate each other to prevent colic in barns everywhere. Your story could strike the right chord with a fellow equestrian who has a horse that behaves just like yours did just before he colicked.

As we always say, everybody has a colic story. Maybe your own horse has colicked late in the night. Perhaps your friend’s horse endured a week-long battle. No matter the situation, we’ve all heard the stories, and we know how those stories often go. Still, no matter how common colic may be, or how familiar the stories often sound, we should share our experiences. Sharing our stories is not only therapeutic, it’s also relatable and can be life-changing for those who hear them.

By submitting your story during Equine Colic Awareness Month in June, you will be entered to win a free “SUCCEED Challenge” registration, including a 60-day supply of SUCCEED Digestive Conditioning Program.

Also, each person who submits a colic story during June will receive a free “My Horse is a Colic-Free Zone” bumper sticker for your horse trailer or truck, to help start conversations and to show your support.


Submit Your Story

Submit your story anytime during June, whether your horse survived or passed away. When you do, you will automatically be entered to win the free SUCCEED Challenge. It doesn’t matter if your horse endured a minor gas colic scare or major surgery – any colic story counts.
