Horse feed ultimately provides horses with what they need to meet their nutritional requirements. Horses, similarly to humans, require a balanced diet of macronutrients, such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats alongside micro nutrients of all kinds such as iron, calcium, etc. The type of feed and the amount of feed that you give to your horses will depend on a variety of factors such as their current pasture, current weight, age and amount of work.
Horse feed comes in a variety of forms and can include grain, pellets, hay and supplements. Hay is an important source of fibre and protein, and is extremely important for horses' gut health. Grain such as oats, corn and barley may be added into a horse’s diet in order to provide additional nutrients and energy. Pelleted feed has become increasingly popular due to its convenience. Pelleted feed often combines hay, grain and other nutrients into a singular pellet. Each pelleted feed contains different levels of each nutrient and it is important to consult with a qualified nutritionist or local veterinarian to see which feed is right for your horse in order to meet their individual nutritional needs.
There is a wide variety of horse feeds which target different needs such as:
Your horse's nutritional needs will differ throughout the years and it is important to realize that horses nutritional requirements may not always be the same. For example, often high-performance horses are not typically in full work all year round and during the off-season when your horse is not needing as much energy due to not being in work, you may be able to drop the amount of feed they are getting whilst the horse is still maintaining their weight.
