'The New Feeding' for training and recreation

paarden voeren met equilin

For horses that do work but prefer not to become too energetic, they can get enough energy from roughage if they get enough of it, so 'the New Feeding'. These horses must also have a 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!

Correct ratio of roughage, BASICs, BALANCERs and protein

Instead of 1 kg of hay per 100 kg of body weight, it appears that horses need at least 1.5% of their body weight in DS (dry matter) in fiber/roughage to keep the body healthy and experience less stress. That is 2 kg of hay per 100 kg of body weight. They naturally eat even more.

Other fiber-rich products such as alfalfa, roughage mixes, dried herbs, carrots, 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 and/or other protein source.

Good intestinal flora is the basis of every healthy horse, that’s the engine!

With the BASICs you correct the intestinal flora of your horse or pony and give him/her a good basis to be able to sustainably carry out the work better. Many supplements become superfluous and many kilos of concentrates too.

The BALANCERs ensure that your horse or pony receives sufficient easily absorbable vitamins and minerals, so that it can continue to perform its self-healing capacity and many other bodily functions.
