***A Balanced Nutritional Package***
A combination of fermentable fiber and carbohydrates that provides sequential energy release necessary to meet the energy requirements of actively competing mature horses and pleasure-riding horses fed good quality roughage.
B vitamins to help promote and regulate several body functions, and added biotin to provide hoof strength and integrity.
Contains quality protein needed for cellular building blocks of enzymes, hormones, tissues and skeletal framework necessary for performing horses.
Remember, young growing horses and pregnant mares are more sensitive to protein quality than mature horses because of the physiological differences.
Adequate intake of balanced minerals in available forms and vitamins with natural tocopherols helps to ensure normal cell function, antioxidant protection of membranes and structural tissue integrity.
Minerals play a critical role in numerous metabolic functions including immunity, reproduction, lactation, growth and development.
Negative effects from stress are reduced when horses have adequate trace mineral status with readily available minerals.
A good feeding program is based on the weight, activity level, life stage and body condition of the horse that keeps it healthy and productive, and it is only as effective as the quality of management practices.
