A high specification, broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement for working horses and ponies.
In addition to a broad-spectrum of vitamins and minerals a full range of B vitamins are included in Performance Vits & Mins.
B vitamins are included as they are involved in energy utilisation and other metabolic functions that affect performance and so are vital for working horses and ponies.
Performance Vits & Mins contains generous levels of vitamin E and selenium, two nutrients that are integral to the body’s antioxidant defence system. Antioxidants defend the body against free radicals which are produced during normal metabolic processes. Exercise increases the amount of free radicals produced and so antioxidant nutrients are very important for working horses.
Live yeast is also included in Performance Vits & Mins to maintain a healthy hind gut and aid fibre digestion.

If you often feel that you’ve been working harder than your horse, you may be thinking that a change of diet could solve all of your problems; but can feeding help to improve your horse’s energy levels?
Rising temperatures, strenuous work and the physiological stress of travelling and competing can cause an electrolyte imbalance in horses as they sweat more which is the main way electrolytes are lost from the body.
