Basic Feed

Roughage forms the bases of our horses’ diet and should always be of good quality and available in sufficient quantities. In nature, horses graze for up to 18 hours a day. This keeps their relatively small stomachs filled with small quantities of feed. Applying this to modern horse care presents a great challenge, as whilst the keeping and uses of horses have changed, their digestive systems have not. They should be given frequent, small meals, predominantly consisting of roughage – and, if needed, a small amount of concentrate or supplemental feed – spread out over the course of the day.
