Why supplement?

Yes- you’re right, it’s an odd question for the blog of a supplement manufacturer to cover, but we feel it’s an important one as we want you to use the right products for your horse…there are enough times when you need to spend money on your equine pal, so spending it on the right things is key!

There are three main reasons why people feed supplements to their horses….

  • They don’t feed the full ration of a complete hard feed, so the horse isn’t receiving the full amount of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
  • The horse is on a forage based diet and the diet requires balancing.
  • The horse has a particular ailment, need or area of weakness that the supplement is being fed to support.

Most people fit into one of these categories at one time or another.

For example, if a horse has had a digestive upset, Inner Balance Probiotics is a great product (and can be fed each day), but people may decide to feed it for a limited time, until their horse’s gut is back to normal.

Whatever your requirements, we can help, and we’ll be honest with you too. If you’d like to know what might benefit your horse, or you’re wondering how you can cut back, just give us a call or send us an email and we’ll help you.
