Prime Performance Nutrition

Two-time Great Lakes Circuit Finals Rodeo Champion and 2006 Dodge National Circuit Finals Champion Barrel Racer Lisa Novak (of Laona, Wisconsin) announces her endorsement of Prime Performance Nutrition products— the equine supplements guaranteed for content, ingredient quality, product consistency, concentration, and optimum palatability.

“I’ve noticed more improvement with PPN products than any other supplements I’ve used,” Novak reports.

The barrel racer, who started on the professional rodeo circuit at age 16, is committed to her horses’ health. Novak started training her barrel horse, Cash N Blue, when he was only three. Now 10 years later, Novak is determined to keep her riding partner healthy and fit—and energetic enough to compete at the highest levels. She says PPN products have helped her keep her horse moving freely—without the repetitive hock injections he once required.

“I know that if you’re going to win, you have to take care of your horse,” she says. “PPN donated some products to a barrel race I was in last year. I started Cash on Maxum HA right away. I saw results. Before using supplements, Cash was getting regular hock injections to keep him moving well. With Maxum HA, he doesn’t need hock injections nearly as often. We’ve cut the number of injections in half.”

Novak also uses PPN’s Sprint Combo paste to boost her horse’s energy before barrel competitions. She says Cash used to slow down after rounding the last barrel. After starting Sprint Combo supplements, his energy has improved—and his speeds have increased. “He’s been stronger throughout his whole run,” Novak says. “He leaves the barrels and you can feel his energy. He keeps going straight to the line.”

Now, Novak and Cash are ready to make the circuit finals again. Traveling with her husband, steer wrestler Dan Novak, and 7-year-old son Austin, Novak says rodeos are an important part of family life. All three travel together with their horses—ensuring the health of family and focusing on healthy horses. All the family’s horses are on PPN products.

Novak says PPN’s products are easy to administer—making feeding time easy. “PPN has done a great job of making products taste good for the horses,” she says. “I have finicky horses and they just gobble it right up. I’ve tried my horses on other brands and they just leave the supplements untouched.”

PPN founder and president Jeff Butler designed his product line with horse owners like Novak in mind. He says PPN is thrilled to have a talented horsewoman endorse his products.

"Lisa Novak is an individual that we are proud to work with,” Butler says. “She’s passionate about her barrel racing and is particular about her horse’s health. I’ve known Lisa for a number of years. When she began using our products after our donation to a sponsored barrel race, we had her attention. She started feeding our Maxum HA in 2005 and was impressed at the way her horses were working and feeling. When she called us to talk more about the product, we asked her to join our team! Barrel racing can be an intense and stressful event for horses. As the sport continues to be more and more competitive, horses need to be at their best. The PPN product line addresses a number of barrel horse needs--from electrolytes to joint health.”

PPN promises to certify ingredients and rigorously test its products. The company lists products’ guaranteed analysis on each label. Then products are tested in worldwide markets to make sure horse owners can easily use the products and see results. In addition to guaranteeing ingredients and testing, PPN is committed to working with organizations such as the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) to follow all of the current regulations.

“We work to provide cutting-edge products based on the horse industry’s needs for any sport—from barrel racing to Western pleasure,” Butler explains. “We make sure to provide products that are of the highest quality we can produce. Our raw materials are independently certified to verify quality and purity. We want the best for our horses and yours.”
