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. Good quality fibre sources such as Alfa-A Original can meet the energy equirements of most horses and ponies in light to medium work . Just add Dengie Performance+ Balancer or Performance Vits & Mins to balance the diet.

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 Original

Alfa-A Original can be fed on its own or it can be combined with cubes or a mix for those horses with a higher energy requirement. If you are feeding Alfa-A Original as the sole feed, use a broad-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement or balancer.

Case Studies

Dressage Para Equine-Athlete Weight Loss Programme

Remi is a para dressage horse who is on the World Class Para Programme and was long listed for Tokyo 2020 along with rider Amanda Shirtcliffe. Remi has always been a chunky horse and was diagnosed with Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS) last year. Unfortunately, Metformin, the veterinary medicine which is often used to manage EMS, isn’t allowed under FEI competition rules so his condition had to be managed through dietary changes and weight loss strategies.
