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.|

Adonis B is the ultimate fusspot, but he now asks for his dinner instead of turning his nose up. I’ve been able to remove the high starch feeds from his diet and feeding a fibre based ration has helped keep him more focused whilst training and competing.
