Rising Star of Whole Food
Quentin, 24, originally from Chicago IL, is now a resident of Ridgefield, CT and Wellington, FL. He has spent his junior and professional career working for various professionals, developing young horses and learning the trade. 2010 was Quentin's first season with a full string of show horses, all of which will be benefiting from a whole foods program! In March, Quentin was a member of the winning Grand Prix Young Riders team in the $20,000 Artisan Farms Team Competition, in Wellington.
Quentin's Whole Food Story
"A couple of years ago, we had a horse that was suffering from severe stomach ulcers. Our veterinarian, Dr. Tim Ober, suggested that we should try to feed the horse a whole foods diet. After seeing the great turn around in that horse's condition, we decided to switch all of our horses to BioStar's whole food program. Beyond the terrific results that whole foods offered that horse, we really liked the idea of removing unnecessary and potentially harmful additives from our horses diet."
Getting More Out of Whole Food Feed Programs
"We found that the transition from commercial feed to whole foods was very simple and easy for our horses. We were able to get all of the feed from our local feed store and because the whole foods are so easily palatable for the horses, we did not worry about them having a bad reaction to the new feed. Tigger Montague, of BioStar EQ was extremely helpful in figuring out an individual feed program for each horse and supplied us with everything we needed."

Quentin Feeds BioStar EQ:
- Optimum EQ - multi vitamin/mineral
- Star Maker EQ - muscle + endurance
- Tum-Ease EQ - ulcer prevention
- StarLyte EQ - electrolyte/recovery
"...a few extra Optimum bars and Star Maker before shows, and a few extra Tum-Ease and StarLyte after. It is a simple program, but it seems to be very effective even for a horse at the top level of the sport."
