"Just recently, I was introduced to the BARIKI ORGANICS horse feed and supplements. Within 5 days, we experienced noticeable changes in my 5 year old quarter horse gelding.
He has become a much happier horse during training sessions, his digestive system had improved remarkably and his nervous runny toiletry habits have ceased all together.
I use BARIKI OPTIMUM which gives him all of his feed supplements, cutting the cost dramatically of his regular hard feeds and BARIKI DIGEST, which has settled his hind gut unbelievably, kept him very calm under the stress of showing and contributed in him becoming a far more relaxed happy horse under any conditions.
I cannot speak highly enough of the BARIKI products I am now using and strongly recommend them to any owner, rider or trainer as I have found them totally beneficial to my horse and just as importantly, BARIKI makes healthy and effective feeding very affordable."

“We have stayed with our current feed program for over 15 years and have never been convinced of any new products that came to our stables. I was skeptical of BARIKI products and how a small additive can have so many benefits. When the BARIKI representative explained about the importance of digestion and the benefits of pre-digestion in their products, I began to understand how this technology could help some of my racehorses. I decided I would give them a try for 60 days and see if this was just another product trying to earn quick dollars.
I began feeding the recommended BARIKI products to all of my racehorses and within a month, I have noticed that my horses have started eating well, improved muscle tone and started looking fantastic in their coats. I was blown away of how well my horses started racing and I recommend these products to anyone looking to optimise their horse’s condition.”

"Since starting on Bariki Optimum and Bariki Digest, she doesn’t get loose feces when travelling and is holding her condition on less feed."

"Thanks BARIKI Team for putting my horse, Bad Boy Rocket, on BARIKI Optimum. He is doing so well. Just after seven weeks in the spelling paddock, he looks like a different horse. He has a shiny coat, is big and strong and looks like a million dollars. I can't believe I have wasted my time and money on so many products. I have found that nothing works like BARIKI Optimum. I love it and my horse loves it! Thank you so much!"

"This is a story of my horse (Silky) and his journey with Bariki. Silky is 29 years young and I’m just going to give you a quick history of this horse so that you get
the full picture. Silky enjoyed many years of club and local competitions until he was 14 yrs old and we discovered he had developed cancer in both eyes. After a couple of operations successfully rid him of the cancer and the vet advised to keep a fly vale on at all times if possible. Then when Silky was 19 yrs old he foundered and had a heart condition. The vets were convinced he wouldn’t make it but I stayed with him all night and next day. When the vet rang they were amazed He was eating and happy again. We keep him on river sand for another two months but it didn’t look like I was ever going to be able to ride him again but I was just glad he was ok.
Six months later I watched him day after day run around the paddock like a two year old so I jumped on him again and before I knew it had him jumping and competing again. Silky’s has always been an active and tuff Arab with a heart of gold but in 2011 his condition declined. By the end of the winter I was feeding him four (4) times a day and he was withering away. His mussel had always been black and as he was loosing all the weight the pigment around his lips on one side had changed to pink. By October he had lost more weight, he had always been a fighter but I feared he was slipping away from me this time.
I had kept up with his worming & teeth and watched him eat to make sure there were no problems but everything I tried failed. In November I started him on the Bariki and it only took one week to start seeing a change. Within two weeks I had a happy and energetic horse again and by the third week he started to look like Silky and I couldn’t believe how shiny his coat was. When I started feeding him the Bariki Optimum I gave him about a very small amount and slowly increased it. I’m also giving him about 20ml of the digest once a day. With the amount of feed I was giving to him. In the winter time it was costing me about $40 a week to feed him now he looks and feels great and the feed bill has reduced to about $14 per week. WOW!
We are now 7 weeks on and Silky is back in work and even Showjumping again thanks to Bariki for giving life back to a much loved old horse! I have also been adding digest to two of our other horses and they have never looked better. My daughters little welsh pony is hand feed on a dirt yard as he founders on grass and the Bariki digest has given him better top line and shoulder muscles and a great coat. Everyone who knows the pony says that he looks the best they have ever seen him.
Thanks team Bariki for the best equestrian feed I have come across in 33 years of owning horses!"

“Training horses you get a lot of people through the front gate making all sorts of claims about some product or treatment they are peddling.
Not so the people from Bariki. They merely state the facts, and I am sure if you try their products you will see the results for yourself. No gimmicks just good science.”

"We have been feeding Bariki products since we opened a Satellite stable at Caulfield and as it was a big change for the horses, we found that Bariki helped keep them on their feed. Since feeding Bariki they are not leaving their feed, have very healthy coats, lifted their body weight and are performing well. Our stable has saved a lot by switching to Bariki products and we have happy and healthy horses!"
-Ciaron Maher Racing, Warrnambool and Caulfield, VIC
"I feed BARIKI Optimum and Bariki Digest to 47 of my racehorses. I have noticed the horses have better digestion, coat looks glossy, not leaving their feed, lifted proper weight and performing exceptionally well. They even eat better after training or while traveling. I now cut back on some feed, able to eliminate gastric ulcer products, probiotics and vitamins. I have saved heaps by switching to Bariki products.
I also use BARIKI Water and Bariki Bio-Bricks in my troughs and the clarity of water became transparent after couple of days and my horses are drinking much better. Now the water has no foul odour and less to clean!"

"I was first introduced to Bariki Organics products about a year ago. I had a young warmblood that I had bred who just wasn't thriving. It was mid-summer and he still had part of his winter coat which looked yellow, frizzy and quite horrid. His diet was good, his worming regime strictly up to date, so he was a real mystery and puzzle to me. I started him on the Bariki Optimum and could see the difference within days! His horrible frizzy coat came out and in it's place was a shiny, silky smooth coat. His attitude improved, his chronic mud fever which we had been battling all through spring and summer disappeared and he became a normal, cheeky, healthy, active two year old that you would expect. So, when a new horse arrived in my stables 6 weeks ago who was depressed, stood in the corner and scoured, had rain scald, would not eat and also had a pretty awful coat, I had no hesitation in putting her on both the Bariki Optimum and also Bariki Digest. Once again, we started seeing the difference within a couple of weeks (see photo). Her appetite returned immediately and she now meets me at the gate to try to get a mouthful out of her feed bucket, she has gained weight, has a bright eye and has just started work again. She eats up every bit of her feed down to the last flake of chaff! We are absolutely delighted with her and can't wait to get her to the track to see if her (below average) form improves."

"I have been feeding my horses Bariki Optimum for a month and they have never looked better. They are a picture of health! Their coats are glowing, have filled out, are far stronger and working better than they ever have. I recommend everyone to try Bariki. It really works!"
Tony Bond, Ararat, VIC - Australia
"I have not changed my feed for a very long time and stuck with what worked. I tried Bariki products and what I've noticed was that horses are eating right, and many are looking and racing well. I now use Bariki as part of my daily feed and I recommend it."
Peter Manning, Great Western, VIC - Australia
"Allbenz Park Harness Racing Stables has been feeding Bariki products for a good amount of time now and we can strongly recommend it to anyone willing to try it. Our horses look great, racing well and are consistent since being feed Bariki products."

"Knight Pistol had been happily living out his retirement in the back paddock for the last 15 years, all of a sudden he lost condition and we thought that his time had come.
Bringing him back to the stables the plan was to give him a bit of tlc and make his last days as happy as we could. That was 5 months ago and now with good feed and Bariki Optimum he is still going strong and looking 10 years younger.
He will be around for a while yet :-)"

“Bess, 23yr old mare quarter horse, poor condition with less than a year to live had dull eyes and very ribby. 3 1/2yr old quarter horse mare in fair condition. Started BARIKI Pasture to 500 acres pasture and horses had drastic change after 2months. Bess looked like a 8yr old filly running around and after 4 months the 3 1/2yr old quarter horse was in show condition. Other trainers asked how long the horse was hand fed and what kind of grains since the coat was very shiny, but told them the mare came straight off the paddock. People couldn't believe it. Usually drench every 6-8 weeks, but haven't drenched this year. Bess took us on a ten day trail ride ten months later"

"We noticed the biggest difference with our standardbred mare. She was dead in the coat and poor condition. After BARIKI feed, this mare now have such a shiny coat and in good racing condition. The show ponies looked good also. Standardbred gelding was lacking performance, so I put the horse on BARIKI feed also. Sent in the blood test after couple of months and the blood test came back perfect. The vet said he wished he was healthy as this horse!"
- Janet Exell, Horsham, VIC-Australia
"I have been showing for over 25 years and have tried a lot of products. Some are ok but some are just a waste of hard earned money. About three months ago, I saw an ad in the Horse Deal magazine called BARIKI performance feed and thought, I'd give it a try. If it didn't work, I wouldn't try it again. Within 2 weeks the thoroughbred I needed weight on named Hoy started to improve. I then put the other two t/breds on BARIKI feed as well. 1st t/bred Cronic Windsucker(extremely difficult to keep weight on) within 3 weeks, he stared to look magnificent! Now after 3 months he looks fantastic and he is in paddock condition, but I could show him tomorrow. The 2nd t/bred Cantankerous mare (needed top line, especially on the bum) she now has that after 3 months. She is also in the paddock and the neighbors are even commenting on their condition and they are not horse people!!! 3rd t/bred Hoy needed condition so we stuffed him with feed, but it was a very slow process. As he was under condition when we got him with washy chestnut, but now his condition is great with deep chestnut coat and his attitude is calmer. I recommend this product to anyone who wants to top their horses condition and wants a calmer attitude. I only feed coprice/lucerne hay and 3 of them look magnificent! I had the chiropractor out on January and he said the 3rd horse Hoy's back looked excellent due to his muscle tone (Came to us with major spinal trouble due to bad transport). Hope this helps and if anyone wants to ask any questions, my email address is email@example.com mark it BARIKI in the subject line and I will be happy to answer any questions."

"I started BARIKI feed to settle my stud after transporting and it successfully settled the horse. I also have a 26 year mare in paddock who I thought would never get proper weight on her and I tried her on several different products. I started BARIKI feed and now she has gained weight, but also her coat is shiny and she is still only in the paddock. Amazing. Now I feed it to any horse that needs a boost."

“I gave Bariki products to my 23 year old Valmont Bonny Lady during the hot summer months in drought conditions. Bonny Lady had been a breeder mare and has had many fouls. Her appetite was down and she was beginning to lose condition and I was concerned. She hadn’t been eating well at the time, but immediately her appetite increased and she seemed happier. Bonnie Lady’s general condition had been average, due to the heat and drought conditions but her conditions improved, including the condition of her coat. For an old gal, she now is frisky.
I then began to give Bariki products to Jindawarra Duke, age four. Duke is picture perfect. His coat shines and Duke really looks good. We have a picture the newspaper took of Duke and I when Duke was featured on Mac’s Butter Showbread Selection tins. We also have the same picture on a large wall hanging.
Jindawarra has seven horses now on Bariki feed and on Bariki water treatment. In drought and stress conditions with a lower quality of hay and feed available, all of the horses have kept their condition and health.
I gladly endorse the Bariki products.”
