Key Features

Performance Fibre is a blend of soft, highly digestible fibres with a high oil level.  A light molasses coating and added spearmint oil  make this the ideal feed for encouraging fussy feeders.

  • A blend of precision-dried alfalfa and grass – highly digestible and so sympathetic to the horse’s digestive system.
  • Soft and easy to chew – perfect for youngstock too
  • A straw-free formulation means Performance Fibre is more digestible and cleaner (lower mould counts) than products containing straw – ideal for promoting good respiratory health in performance horses
  • Performance Fibre contains alfalfa – a natural buffer to acidity and rich source of natural vitamins and minerals
  • Approved by BETA for horses and ponies prone to Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome
  • The high level of oil provides slow-release energy and helps to create exceptional coat shine
  • Performance fibre provides a relatively high level of slow release energy without significantly increasing starch intake – ideal for performance horses requiring a low starch diet

Case Studies

Racehorse in Poor Condition

Five-year-old racehorse Red had one run before arriving in Richenda Ford’s care in 2020. He arrived in very poor condition, so Richenda decided to put him on an ‘ulcer friendly’ diet which was high in calories, fibre, and oil, but low in starch.

Tasty and Easy-To-Chew Hay Replacer

When Kate first got Bodie on loan, she was very underweight and at 26 years old, Kate was worried she wouldn’t ever put the weight back on. Bodie also had very few teeth, making grazing and eating hay particularly difficult.

The Perfect Blend For A Fussy Horse

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.
