Fit, athletic horses are typically picky and therefore difficult to feed, so we’ve developed a high energy fibre feed that’s sure to encourage the fussiest of feeders.
The inclusion of grass, alongside nutrient rich alfalfa, provides a natural sweetness that’s complemented by a light molasses coating and added spearmint oil to offer a highly palatable, soft and easy to chew, high fibre feed.
A great value feed – a stubbs scoop weighs 300grams and so there are over 60 scoops per 20kgs bag – 33 days supply if feeding 2 scoops per day
The alfalfa and grasses in Performance Fibre are dried at a very high temperature which reduces mould. Efficient extraction processes ensure Performance Fibre has a low dust content making it ideal for promoting respiratory health.
|Horse or Pony||Size Guide (hh)||Approx Weight (kg)||Medium/Hard Work/Condition (kg/day)||Forage Replacing (kg/day)|
|Small Pony (eg: Shetland, Welsh A)||9 - 12.2||200||1.0||4|
|Medium Pony (eg: Exmoor, New Forest)||12.2 - 13.2||300||1.5||6|
|Large Pony (eg: Connemara, Welsh D)||13.2 - 14.2||400||2.0||8|
|Small Horse (eg: Arab, small TB)||14.2 - 15.2||450||2.0||9|
|Medium Horse (eg: TB, ID cross)||15.2 - 16.2||550||2.5||11|
|Large Horse (eg: Warmblood)||Over 16.2||650||2.5||13|
One large Stubbs scoop = 300g
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.
|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.|

Feeding fibre is paramount in order for the digestive system to stay healthy, which is why I feed Dengie Performance Fibre alongside a concentrated feed to my racehorses.
I have been feeding Dengie products since I started the business, almost 10 years ago! I feel Dengie Performance Fibre meets the energy requirements of my competition horses completely.

With temperatures forecast to be below zero and snow fall for areas of the country, ensuring your horse or pony is kept warm and going about your normal routine can be a challenge.
There is concern regarding a potential forage shortage this winter. Many ran out of forage before the end of last winter and a dry summer has seen the early use of hay and haylage harvested this year. So if you find yourself short of hay and haylage this winter then what’s the alternative?
Keeping horses comfortable, at a healthy weight, and working happily are all challenges that face everyone who owns or cares for a horse or pony with ulcers. Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) affects roughly 40% of leisure horses, 60% of competition horses and up to 90% of racehorses.
