Stance Equitec CoolStance Copra Premium Coconut (Copra) Meal
CoolStance Copra is made from the white part of the coconut, which is dried, baked and ground. It is totally natural and is chemical and GMO free. CoolStance provides the horse with COOL and TRAINABLE energy.
The oil in CoolStance (coconut oil) is saturated and rich in Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCT). This means it is highly stable (not prone to rancidity) and can provide your horse with ready, non-glucose energy.
Most horses love the taste of CoolStance. It is rich in quality protein, and the oil assists with coat condition. CoolStance contains <11% NSC (sugar and starch) and has a high content of digestible energy. CoolStance may support horses with metabolic disorders including tying up, laminitis or excitable behaviour.
In the UK and Europe, we would recommend feeding CoolStance wet or damp. Our horses are subjected to damper pasture, higher rainfall and softer hay resulting in our horses producing less saliva when eating.
By feeding CoolStance wet, it is also a great way of ensuring your horse has access to a greater water intake which helps to rehydrate. Wetting or dampening CoolStance can also prevent dust irritation.
CoolStance is completely free of prohibited substances. It is regularly batch tested, aflatoxin tested and regulated by FEMAS.

Feeding the hard-working horse
CoolStance Copra is a popular choice amongst owners whose horses are in hard work.
The coconut oil in Copra contains medium chain triglycerides (MCT) that are easier to digest, absorb and utilize in comparison to the long-chain fatty acids found in other oils such as flax, soya and rice-bran oil.
MCTs are absorbed directly into the portal blood and transported to the liver.
By comparison, long chain fatty acids are absorbed into the lymphatics and slowly transported to the liver.
MCTs appear to behave more like glucose than other oils, meaning coconut oil provides a ready source of energy for use during exercise.
