For some horse cereals can provide a useful source of instant energy, ideal for horses that are working hard for short periods of time and those that need more sparkle. However, the level of cereals a horse can tolerate in the diet is dependent upon a number of factors.
If you own a horse that is easily excitable, insulin resistant or suffering from a muscle disorder cereals are best avoided and a low starch, high fibre diet such as Rowen Barbary Solution Mash should be fed. This is a cereal free and molasses free feed with just 0.9% sugar.
Containing 150gm of oil in every 1kg, alongside key antioxidants, Solution Mash will also help meet the energy requirements of poor doers who require more than fibre alone to maintain condition, as it will help ensure controlled weight gain. The high levels of oils also provide an excellent source of slow release energy, beneficial for horses requiring stamina and helping to promote sustained performance.
Containing 26% fibre Solution Mash is a very high fibre feed and will help to encourage better digestion within the hindgut, being particularly valuable for horses that require a diet that is sympathetic on the digestive system. Yeasacc 2016 is also added for improved fibre and mineral digestion and gut health.
Natural herbs spearmint, garlic and fenugreek are also included along with optimum vitamins and minerals to help support overall health and vitality.
