Formulated for horses and ponies in light work to be fed alongside any Dengie fibre feed.
Leisure Balancer is low in energy, sugar and starch compared to traditional mixes and cubes and so is ideal for good doers and individuals that require a low sugar and starch diet. If you are feeding less than the recommend amount of a mix or cube you won’t be supplying the required level of nutrients your horse or pony needs. Leisure Balancer contains concentrated levels of vitamins and minerals so that it can be fed in smaller quantities but still provide a balanced diet.
