How Hard Are You Working Your Horse?

The amount and kind of work your horse or pony is doing is an important factor when calculating the quantity and type of feed to give. The energy requirements of most horses and ponies in light to medium work can be met by feeding a fibre based diet such as Alfa-A Lite. Just add Performance Vits & Mins or Performance+ Balancer to balance the ration.

NOTE: Horses are individuals and so always adjust your horse’s feed ration to suit his temperament and condition as well as his work load.

How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Alfa-A Lite
