Equitop Myoplast is a dietary supplement geared at developing lean muscle mass in competition horses through a concentrated source of valuable nutrients. Pharmaceutical grade in a bio-available form, Equitop Myoplast is both safe and highly effective when used regularly. Sport and show horses, as well as young horses in training, can benefit from all Equitop has to offer, including its careful blend of iron and 18 essential amino acids (L-Lysine, L-Threonine, DL-Methionine and L-Tryptophan included) to reconstruct new muscle and condition existing tissue. Most of our customers report seeing a marked difference in their horses between 2-4 weeks and 93% would use Equitop Myoplast again.

Equitop Myoplast is supplied with a 25g scoop. The daily dose is one scoop per day for a horse under 500kg bodyweight, and 2 scoops for horses over 500kg. However it is safe to give a higher dose for horses during intensive training or competition. Always check with your vet if in doubt.

Results should be visible within 3-4 weeks.

When will your horse get the most from Equitop Myoplast?
  • During periods of intensive training and competition
  • When your horse is in training at the beginning of the season or when you are bringing horses in
  • to work after a period of rest
  • When you have a young horse entering training
  • When you have an older horse finding it difficult to maintain condition
  • When you have a broodmare with an increased need for protein
  • During rehabilitation – when you do not want to increase the amount of calories, but want to maintain muscle condition

It is recommended that EQUITOP MYOPLAST is fed for at least a month initially. Results should be visible within 3-4 weeks, overall condition and muscle definition should improve with a reported increase in stamina and exercise tolerance.

How long will it last? Up to 60 days

45 Review of Equitop Myoplast
Verified Purchase

By on 30 December 2023

I used this product years ago when I worked in a professional Dressage yard and it worked wonders then, so thought I'd try it on my semi-retired Dressage horse sho is now 21 and starting to look a bit lacking in muscle. It has done wonders for him in 10 days I can already see the difference. Has to be used in conjunction with working the horse (even if just hacking and lunging) to work though. Definitely recommend. Only thing to add is my horse isn't masively keen on the taste so have to mask it in a sloppy feed. Definitely recommend

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Equitop Myoplast for Horses, including answers from our team.

Grass sickness recovery

Caroline Eagle

Would this supplement be useful for a 2 year old shire recovering from grass sickness? His muscles have wasted away due to his lack of appetite. He is slowing regaining weight, would he benefit and would it help repair the damage?

  • VioVet Staff

Myoplast contains amino acids that are the building blocks to muscle. It will work well if your aim is to help build muscle back onto your horse. It will need to be used alongside a training regime as muscle will only grow in response to work, but you should see muscle is built up quicker whilst on the supplement.

Suzy Wilson

I am struggling to get my horse to eat Equitop Myoplast in her feed. She isn’t normally a fussy eater. What is your recommendation plse? I have tried apple juice, yogurt & honey none of which worked

  • VioVet Staff


Thank you for your question,

You should start by putting a very very small amount in so she doesn't notice it, like a very small pinch, and then each day gradually build it up slowly to the correct dose. This should allow her to adjust to any slight flavour changes and texture differences over time, and it will become normal for her.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

Is this product safe to feed a horse with EMS and Cushings? What is the sugar content in one scoop?

  • VioVet Staff

It would be best to check with your own vet before adding anything to your horses diet. However the manufacturers suggest that Myoplast is safe to feed to horses with Cushings or EMS. It is primarily a protein supplement with only a very small amount of sugar so should not cause a problem.

Feeding regime


How does Equitop Myoplast fit in with the horse's general feed regime? Does it replace a feed balancer for example?

  • VioVet Staff

Myoplast is designed to be added to the main feed as an extra. It would be best to continue a balancer which will provide essential nutrients for general health where Myoplast is geared towards developing muscle.

Amount of exercise

Nina Hart

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: shropshire, United Kingdom

My mare has lost muscel due to been left to graze for 3years in field with no exercise by prev owners we have now bought her and has started work 1stly had to put her on diet now we have been hacking 4days a week for 20 minutes and 1day jumping lesson and she is competed and does 2classez at show should i be doing anything special to build up muscel i am giving her 1scoop of myoplast and 250g of mix 250g of allen and page calm and condition and supplements are flax oil and joint supplement

  • VioVet Staff

You are doing a lot of things right but if you are still struggling to get condition on her it is safe to increase the dose of myoplast to 2 scoops. You could also increase her calorie intake by giving a larger feed twice a day or feeding 3 times a day. Doing hill work with her whilst you are out hacking will help her to build up muscle along with pole and cavaletti work more than just jumping once a week... Other than that make sure she is up to date with worming and her teeth have been done.

I have a pure breed Arabian 8 month old Colt foal and would this be safe to use on him and in what sort of dosage?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is perfectly safe for your horse and I would give the normal amount, which would be one scoop per day.

Equitop Myoplast for horses on box rest/coming back to work


My pony has been given this by the vet to build her muscles up after six months books rest with a fractured Pidal bone only working her at walk and right now with the weather sometimes only twice a week will this product to be effective

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Mandy,

Equitop Myoplast will be a brilliant product to feed your mare to help with muscle development. This product is like when athletes take protein shake to feed their muscles after training, Myoplast works in the same manor. It is made up of essential amino acids, any deficiency in these amino acids can limit protein production in the body.

Why would this be good for a horse coming back into work/on box rest? This is because protein is needed to repair body tissues and aid recovery. It also will stop too much muscle lose whilst your horse is not in work. It has a balance of nutrients of fibre, protein and carbohydrates, as well as vitamins and minerals. This will all help aid healing process by supporting muscle function, digestion, immunity and respiratory health. Myoplast is a non heating supplement, so should effect your horses mood, however if your horse is building muscle they are naturally going to feel stronger.

It is important to feed along side a high fibre and low starch diet, feeding concentrate feeds little and often. Also make sure your horse has plenty of high quality clean forage.

Equities Myoplast and Wheat Allergy


My horse is allergic to wheat so has a diet of Alfa A, succulents, and a vitamin and mineral supplement. He is a (very) good doer, and is a dressage horse working at Advanced Medium level. I'm concerned that he isn't getting enough protein for the work that he is doing, but need to give him a supplement that won't put a lot of weight on him or trigger his wheat allergy! Is Equitop Myoplast suitable for him?

  • VioVet Staff

This should be the ideal product as long as your horse is just sensitive to wheat and is not affected by corn (maize). There is no wheat used in Myoplast but there is corn. He will probably be fine with it, but sometimes a horse can react to both these types of cereal. You would have to try a small amount to find out.
