'The New Feeding Concept' for training and leisure

voeding voor recreatiepaarden

Many horses that are in work but do not have to gain a lot of energy, are able to absorb enough energy from their roughage if they are fed adequately. In short, this is ‘The New Feeding Concept’. For these horses, it is very important that their intestinal flora are healthy, as this is the foundation for every healthy and happy horse.

Nutrition for recreation horses

Many horses that are in work but do not have to gain a lot of energy, are able to absorb enough energy from their roughage if they are fed adequately. In short, this is ‘The New Feeding Concept’. For these horses, it is very important that their intestinal flora are healthy, as this is the foundation for every healthy and happy horse.

Sufficient roughage makes for a more content horse with better digestion and fewer stereotypical behaviours! The proper ratio of roughage for horses. The proper ratio of roughage, BASICs, BALANCERs and protein

gezonde paarden is het doel van Equilin en 'Het Nieuwe Voeren'

A healthy intestinal flora is the foundation of every healthy horse, that’s where the engine is!

Instead of 1kg of hay per 100kg of body weight, it is now proven that horses need a minimum of 1,5% of their body weight in dry matter of fibres/roughage to keep their body healthy and experience less stress. That is the equivalent of almost 2kg dry hay per 100kg of body weight. And in nature, the horse will eat even more.

Other high-fibre products such as alfalfa, roughage mixes, dried herbs, carrots, bran and even soaked beetroot pulp are also included in this fibre requirement. An increased energy and protein requirement can be met with a maximum of 1kg ‘light’ muesli and/or another source of protein. Healthy happy horses, that is Equilin®’s goal with ‘The New Feeding Concept’

EQUILIN BASICs allow you to correct and rebalance the intestinal flora of your horse or pony, giving them a solid foundation for durably maintaining their training and work. Many supplements will become a thing of the past, as well as feeding kilos and kilos of concentrates.

EQUILIN BALANCERs ensure your horse or pony receives sufficient highly-digestible vitamins and minerals, to maintain their regenerative abilities and other body functions properly.

Voordelen Equilin voor recreatie en trainingspaarden

The benefits for recreation horses and training are among others:

  • Feeding less or no concentrates; good quality roughage contains enough energy for one hour of light to medium level training per day.
  • Fatty acids from fibres as an energy source are much more beneficial for every horse, improving fitness and muscle metabolism, and lowering the heart rate.
  • Omega 3 (DHA and EPA), vitamin E and magnesium allow the horse to relax more and become less sensitive to stress.
  • Essential amino acids allow for muscle build-up without putting extra strain on the liver.
  • Vitamin C, zinc and MSM boost the immune system and support the joints.
