About Corro Top Rated
Every month, Corro partners with three equestrian experts from every corner of the equine industry to judge a head-to-head competition of five best-selling equine products in a specific category. Corro Top Rated judges put the products to the test in top professional programs and assign scores based on the product’s performance.
The product with the highest overall score earns a Corro Top Rated blue ribbon as our judges’ top pick for the category. The judges also provide valuable insights and recommendations to ensure that horse owners have all the information they need to make the best decisions for their horses.
In addition to helping owners give back to their horses, Corro Top Rated also gives back to the horse community by donating a portion of the proceeds from top-rated products to deserving charities selected by that month’s judges.
