"I have had my 7 year old quarter horse gelding, Rio, on Crypto Aero for over a year now. He loves the feed, and I have been very pleased with the results. I love the natural, simple, yet powerful ingredients, and having the peace of mind of knowing exactly what I am feeding my boy. We have a vigorous training and showing schedule, including reining, ranch horse versatility, and liberty presentations. So I ask a lot of him, and Crypto Aero helps him to look and perform his best. I frequently get compliments on his beautiful shine and conditioning, thanks to Crypto Aero!"
