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

Alfa-A Lite can be fed as the sole energy source alongside a broad-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement or balancer.

Respiratory Care

The alfalfa in Alfa-A Lite is dried at a very high temperature which helps to reduce mould. Efficient extraction processes ensure Alfa-A Lite has a low dust content making it ideal for promoting good respiratory health.

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 Alfa-A 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.

Work load Example
Convalescence/Resting Horses on box rest, or turned away.
Light work Maximum of 1 hour per day hacking, mostly at walk with some trotting and cantering, or 30 minutes of schooling, mostly at the trot with some canter.
Medium work Schooling, dressage, show-jumping, novice or intermediate 1 day eventing or hunting 1 day per week.
Hard Work Advanced one day events. 3 day events, hunting 2 days per week, polo and all forms of racing.
