Sport horses and 'the New Feeding'

For sport horses, they perform just as well or perhaps better if they receive sufficient roughage. The so-called grass belly is a result of not properly digesting roughage. Also for sport horses, the basis of a healthy horse is a good intestinal flora.

Sufficient roughage ensures a more satisfied horse, better digestion and beneficial energy for the muscles!

Correct ratio of roughage, concentrates, BASICs and BALANCERs

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, bran and soaked beet pulp also fall within this fiber requirement.

An increased need for ‘courage’, energy and protein can be supplemented with a maximum of 1 to 1.5 kg of sports muesli or chunks.

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

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 New Feed’ ensures ‘happy athletes’ and is also simple, clear and cost-effective feeding for larger sports stables!

Feeding carts full of pots and buckets of supplements are a thing of the past! With ‘the New Feeding’ you feed your horse smartly in top condition!

Benefits for sport horses include:

  • Less to no concentrates; Sufficient suitable roughage contains enough energy for 1 hour of L/M work per day.
  • The fatty acids as an energy source from the fibers are many times more favorable for a sport horse, the condition and muscle metabolism improves, the heart rate also remains lower
  • Omega 3 (DHA), vitamin E, magnesium ensure a more relaxed and less stressed horse.
  • The essential amino acids improve the muscles without putting an extra burden on the liver.
