Low Sugar Low Starch Feeds For Your Horse’s Treat Ball


As winter approaches and turnout time is limited, horses and ponies may spend more time stabled. In general, keeping your horse occupied during the winter months can often be a cause for concern for many horse owners. Horse treat balls and snack balls can be a great way to help reduce boredom and provide a more natural ‘trickle’ feeding rate. Use low sugar low, starch horse treats to keep them occupied, entertained and their nutrition up to scratch.

Finding a treat to use in a horse treat ball that contains tasty, healthy ingredients can sometimes be a challenge. Thankfully, our Dengie range consists of a great many different low sugar low starch horse feeds. Our Grass Pellets may just be the perfect addition to your horse treat ball! Providing fibre in a concentrated form, our grass pellets are naturally low in sugar and starch. This product is also FREE from:

  • Artificial preservatives, flavours and additives
  • Molasses – no added sugar
  • Cereals and by-products including straw
  • Binders and fillers

Another great alternative for your horse’s treat ball is our Alfalfa Pellets which are simply 100% alfalfa – rich in calcium and other naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. As alfalfa is naturally low in sugar (5%) Alfalfa Pellets are ideal for horses and ponies that require a low sugar diet such as laminitis prone individuals, including those with Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS) and Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction (PPID). Our Alfalfa Pellets are one of our favourite low sugar low starch horse treats for your horse treat ball.

Did you know: Alfalfa and Grass Pellets are not just a high-fibre source for horses and ponies, other animals such as cattle, sheep, goats and camelids can also enjoy the benefits of these versatile feeds.
