Family Owned and operated in NZ for over 18 years
Luke & Sacha are the current owners and operators of Equine America product range in New Zealand. The products have been in New Zealand for over 18 years now and we have established a fantastic reputation as having the highest quality & widest range of products on the market. The company was founded by Luke’s mother Sue, however in 2012 Sue sadly lost her battle with cancer. Sue worked extremely hard over the 12 years she operated Cortaflex NZ and left behind a legacy of strength and determination to spread the word about the best products in the equine industry.
The Equine America range was formulated by Equine chemist, Bruce Snipes from Aitken, North Carolina USA. Bruce has pioneered the development of food supplements for horses, including the 1st use of electrolytes and of biotin for hooves. In recent years he created Cortaflex which is now the number one product for joint supplementation.
Cortaflex is now used by leading riders and trainers across the world and in all equine disciplines, and was successfully tested by the Veterinary Medical Research Centre at Michigan State University in a double blind clinical trial.
In addition to Cortaflex, a full range of highly effective products for horses, dogs, cats and people have been developed since Equine America was launched in 1997. All are produced using high quality ingredients and comply with the regulations administered by the UK Veterinary Medicines Directorate and the Food Standards Agency.
