Feeding the Leisure Horse

Feeding the Leisure Horse

It is vital that you take a horses workload into account when trying to determine the correct diet, if a horses energy loss is greater than energy intake then weight, and subsequently, body condition will be lost.  On the other hand if a horse is receiving more energy than they are burning off daily then this will result in weight gain.

Most horses will do well on a high fibre feed which will supply the low energy levels necessary for horses in light to moderate work.  This will include all those competing in Pony Club and Riding Club activities as well as those that regularly compete in dressage, show jumping or one day events

Rowen Barbary have designed two different types of feeds which will supply low energy levels, suitable for the leisure horse - ReadyMash & Leisure Plus.
