Great Results, Hard to Feed
I honestly think it worked and I saw results very quickly. The only part is, because it is a powder, my horse didn't like it. She could separate the powder from the grain. So I started wetting it just a little so the powder couldn't be sifted out, but she didn't like the texture of that. It was just a struggle every time I had to feed it. If this is in a pellet form I would have given it 10 stars or if 5 if I could. But it's just not palatable and easy to feed. So I kind of gave up on it.

Love this product!! I use it on many of my jumpers. Helps give them the fitness and topline they need to be successful. Wouldn’t use anything else.

Good Ingredients - Great Fresh Smell
Must confess I am big on "smell." This product smells so nice and fresh. My mare and gelding both eat this in their grain with no problem at all. Good ingredients. The name sounds more like a non-steroidal steroid. But it really is just a vitamin supplement.

Works wonders!!
My gelding was diagnosed with stringhalt in the fall of 2016. After examination at Washington state university he was given steroid injections to his peronial nerve. His gait improved but was still not perfect. I read about other cases where strengthening the muscles around the area can override the nerve issue. 2 months in muscle up with light work he looked almost normal. 6 months later we are getting ready to compete back at FEI dressage and I believe the muscle up has made a huge difference in the final piece of his recovery.

AniMed Muscle-Up is an Excellent Product
AniMed is the best supplement to add muscle on horses that are in training. I've used several other products that didn't compare to the results I've had with Muscle-Up. My family bought a Thoroughbred who was very underweight and lacked muscle. We've only had him for less than two months and he already looks like a different horse! He now has a broad chest, full shoulder's and his topline and hindquarters are filling in nicely. It keeps muscle on my Friesian stallion. We also feed it with EquiPride, which is an outstanding product to help with weight gain and it aids in bringing out rich deep colors our horses. I highly recommend AniMed Muscle-Up!

It works!
I have tried other muscle building supplements before that didn't work. Even though I was skeptical, I tried this one. ..... and it actually made a difference! Very pleased with the results!

Trying another 3 Containers
I have an older 24 year old swayed back horse that was loosing his top line when we switched from some high fat grain to cheaper. We're back on the good stuff now and supplement with Rice Bran Powder for fat but I wanted to Muscle him back up as well as my other 4 horses now that we're riding more. I just ordered 3 more containers and hopefully within the next 2 months see a noticeable difference. My younger 5 year old fillies are starting to fill out really nice, bigger behinds and thicker chests. We bought a big gelding that was literally skin and bones -- fattened him up on Weight Gain from this sight and now I want to see him muscle up more.

Just the ticket!
We got this product to help our percheron gelding stregthen up his hind area and tighten his hay belly... Within a month of adding it to his strength training and diet he showed a massive improvement... He has tucked his saggy gut, built up his hing end, filling in at the withers, broadened his chest and now has a draft horse neck! He looks 100% better that when we got him last year! He had a very low key, dosal disposition and even though we did notice his attitude "perk up" it was not too hot or uncontrolable in any way. He finally just has a nice pep in his step; which brings me to the next thing we noticed with this product. Before he started it, he was rather lazy, unfocused and very quick to just give up and QUIT! Now he is more focused and ambitious. He gets excited to tack up and strut his stuff! Love it! Thank you animed!!!!

Great Product
I use this as the season begins and we start to condition our rodeo horses or horses in training. It helps eliminate any soreness they may recieve from the previous days training/conditioning. I also use this product if we have competitions multiple times in a day or thoughout a long weekend. This product really helps keep them feeling great and also bulks up their muscle a little. I use following a workout in some pelletted feed.

Great product for the price
I bought this in hopes to help my gelding regain lost muscle from lack of work and to recover from damage caused by EPM. I've had him on it less than a month, and just realized I was only feeding the maintenance dose, and already with only light workouts I've noticed his leg muscles have doubled in size. I am excited to see what it can do long-term and with more difficult workouts. He also eats it no problem and will lick the bucket to make sure none is left.

add muscle tone back to rescue horses
DIANNE F on Nov 5, 2016
I was using another muscle supplement that was more expensive and I decided to try Muscle-Up and found it to work just as well and more affordable.

This product had lots of good reviews and I am looking for a supplement to help my horses bulk up a bit, they tend to get a little thin when I am training them full time.

malnourished rescue horses
JANICE T on Apr 17, 2015
I love this product for my horses in the spring as I begin to leg them back up, this really helps to elimate any soreness issues they may have, also great if you compete in two day rodeos to give for your horse to keep him feeling great both days or rigorous training. Or old horses before and after a long trail.

I was looking for a supplement to protect my huge paint's muscles while he started hard training. I chose AniMed because I have used them for years and have always been happy with their products.
DOMINIQUE C. S on Sep 22, 2014
We had a long brutal winter and frankly, I don't think our Arab is gentically equipt to handle that weather. He lost a lot of muscle tone and needs help with that. So, I'm hoping this will do the trick, it appears to be most comprehensive. Other than that, he's back to his arrogant old self, lol.

Used it on a 10yr old quarter that was looking sluggish and losing muscle tone. After about a week noticed a huge difference in stamina and muscles started to appear more solid. Great product!
Jeffrey T on Feb 21, 2014
I am using this item to put muscle on a horse that I rescued. This horse has NO muscle or fat on him at all and I think this product will help with that. I have used this in the past to put a little bulk on my show mare and also to help her with muscle recovery after hard workouts. Works great.

add muscle tone back to rescue horses
DIANNE F on Nov 5, 2016
Will this make my horse hot? Looking to strengthen muscles surrounding stifles. Had minor results with exercise and want a boost.
Diane H on Nov 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have been feeding AniMed Muscle-UP to an older quarter horse mare that is a hard keeper and has joint issues from gaming. I don't think it made her "hot" at all. The most obvious effect that it has is that it stimulates her appetite, so she is eating more. I have not seen significant weight gain either, but she does have better muscle tone, and appears to be more comfortable.
I have a 7 year old Arabian/mustang and he's really really hyper all the time, I wanted to try this product because I want him to muscle up like a quarter horse, he's fat but he has no muscle and I barrel race so he kinda needs the muscle. I just wanted to make sure that it won't make him even more hyper? And can I still continue working him even when he eats this?
Head u on Aug 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The mare that i am feeding it to has not got hot from eating it. It helped to rebuild her top line and filled the muscle back in on her hips, heart area and barrel. To my knowledge it is made for performance horses and there is not a withdraw period from feeding to working your horse. From the ingredients i dont see anything that would make your horse 'high' or hot. I would keep in mind that this only helps and brings out what mother nature already gave the horse. Meaning it wont make big bulky muscle if the horse didnt have it to begin with.
Will this make my horse even more hyper? He's already very hyper anyways, can I continue to work him? He hardly has any muscle and he's 7 years old.. Any suggestions?
Head u on Aug 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It did not make my horse hyper when he was put on it. One thing that i did with a hyper mare was i put her on a high fat diet and it not only helped her with muscle but it also helped to calm her down. a good combination i found was this supplement and empower boost.
is this product safe for yearlings in training?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure. I feed it to an 8yr old. I wouldn't think it would be harmful though.
Can i use this on my aqha that i show? Or will it come up on a dtug test for illegal drugs?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's just a supplement with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc. It should not test. No different than show horses on coat supplements
How many servings?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the weight of the horse and whether it's being started with a loading dose or used with a maintenance dose. Here is a direct link to the label with all the feeding instructions:
Can this muscle up be fed at the same time along with weight up for a ribby horse with poor topline, shoulders and withers?
Donna D on Dec 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use muscle up all the time. It works great. I would not use it with anything else. Just lots of water. Keep the horse on sweet feed, hay as ND regular wormer. If you want keep the horse on 2 scoops of muscle longer.
Is this legal to continue use through show season? Loving the results so far!!
Cami L on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We use it on racehorses when they are post race tested without issue.

This seems to have a lot of sugar. Can I use this on a 16 year old gelding with EMS?
Dee S on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Probably not, but to be certain, we have to recommend that you check with your veterinarian, since the answer would depend on your particular horse's blood work.
Can you feed this with cool calories?
Traci D on Feb 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we cannot give out medical advise. I would contact your veterinarian.
Can you feed this to a young horse like around four or five years of age?
Marsha McCay on Feb 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I feed this to my horses three years and up... I find it helps keep them together when they normally would get lanky.. it hasn't affected those horses started at three down the road in anyway... I think its a great suppliment to add to finish out their diet
