Ready, Steady, Go.......!

As the season gets off to a flying start and show dates are pencilled into your calendar are you and your horse ready for the busy summer ahead?

Good feeding is key to success for any competition horse and a carefully managed diet can mean the difference between 1st and 2nd.  When planning a diet for your horse consider what your main goals are for 2020, what will you be asking your horse to do?

Are you happy with your horse’s current condition, its temperament?

Did your horse perform well on its diet last year or could it have been improved?

If your horse lacks stamina consider using oils such as Sumo Original as a source of slow release energy.  Current research has proved that oil can be an extremely beneficial source of slow release energy, providing twice the amount of energy as carbohydrates from the more traditional cereals.

Or if your horse needs instant energy for short sharp burst of work then a feed higher in starch will help.  Rowen Barbary Condition & Performance may be the answer, providing a high energy blend of cooked cereals, oils and proteins alongside optimum levels of micro nutrients for horses in hard work.

However, no two horses are alike.  A highly-strung Thoroughbreds diet will vary dramatically to that of a laid-back Middleweight so if you are unsure on how to get the best from you horse contact Rowen Barbary Horse Feeds for advice.
