'The New Feeding' for training and recreational horses

For the horse that does work but does not have to become too energetic, it can obtain sufficient energy from roughage provided it consumes enough of it, so 'The New Feeding'.

The basic principle here is that these horses have good intestinal flora, which is the basis of every healthy and willing horse. Sufficient roughage ensures a more satisfied horse with better digestion and fewer stable vices!

Towards the correct ratio of roughage, BASICS, BALANCERS and protein for horses

Instead of 1 kg of hay per 100 kg of a horse's body weight, it appears that horses need at least 1.5% of their body weight in DM (dry matter) in fiber/roughage to keep the horse's body healthy and to experience less stress. experienced. That is almost 2 kg of dry hay per 100 kg of body weight. They even eat much more without restriction, up to 2.5 to 3 kg per 100 kg of horse. So make sure that horses and ponies do not become too fat with unlimited roughage!

Other fiber-rich products such as alfalfa, roughage mixes, dried herbs, carrots, light mueslis, bran and soaked beet pulp also fall within this fiber requirement. An increased need for energy and protein can be supplemented with a maximum of 1 kg of 'light' muesli, alfalfa chunks and/or another protein source.

Benefits for training and recreational horses include:

  • Less or no concentrate; Sufficient suitable roughage (2 kg/100 kg per day) contains enough energy for 1 hour of L/M work per day.
  • The fatty acids as an energy source from the fibers are much more beneficial for every horse, the condition and muscle metabolism improves, and the heart rate also remains lower.
  • Omega 3 (DHA and EPA), vitamin E and magnesium ensure a more relaxed and less stress-sensitive horse.
  • The essential amino acids improve muscle strength without putting additional strain on the liver.
  • Vitamin C, zinc and MSM for a better immune system and support the joints.

Good intestinal flora is the basis of every healthy horse

With the EQUILIN BASICS you correct the intestinal flora of your horse or pony and give him/her a good basis to be able to work better in a sustainable manner. Many supplements become redundant and so do many kilos of concentrates.

The EQUILIN BALANCERS ensure that your horse or pony receives sufficient easily absorbable vitamins and minerals and can therefore continue to perform its self-healing capacity and many other bodily functions properly.
