Like all horses, sport horses should get most of their daily energy requirement from forage, with a minimum amount of between 1.5 kg and 2 kg per 100 kg of the horse's ideal weight. Sport horses should be given more hay, because their increased physical activity means they need more energy in their feed than less active horses.
If hay alone does not suffice to maintain weight, the horse will need to be given concentrates.
supplies sufficient energy for high performance demands and stimulates thorough chewing of concentrate feed. It contains a modest amount of starch, and is gentle on the intestinal tract.
can supplement the rations of horses that work hard and need quite large amounts of feed. Maiscobs
are very low-protein and can thus counteract excess protein from large quantities of feed.
Horses with high endurance requirements, such as those in endurance riding, will benefit from feeds with a high crude fibre content such as AlpenGrün Pellet
, as these provide continuous energy over several hours.
Supplementing rations with Amino Pur
will offer targeted support to muscle development.
is a suitable mineral feed for all sport horses. It contains nutrients important for muscles, including essential amino acids, vitamin E, and selenium.
