Oats - The preferred grain for horses, oats provide a readily available carbohydrate energy source with built in fiber for safe grain feeding.
Naturally Encapsulated Vegetable Oil - Vegetable oil increases the energy density of the diet, improving stamina and delaying the onset of fatigue in endurance horses. The addition of fat can also minimize the risk of laminitis and other metabolic conditions associated with starch overload while maintaining desired body condition of active horses.
Extruded Fiber Nugget with Beet Pulp and Rice Bran - The extruded nugget slows the rate of feed intake, which helps minimize the incidence of colic, ulcers and other digestive disorders. The nugget also provides highly digestible and fermentable sources of fiber for long term aerobic energy use.
Low Protein with Added Amino Acids - Restricting total protein in mature endurance horses fed a high fat diet may help reduce fatigue and improve muscle function during strenuous exercise. Guaranteed levels of Lysine and Methionine helps ensure that quality protein is available for strong muscle development and maintenance of body tissues.
Chelated Zinc, Copper and Manganese, Plus Bio-Available Selenium - Optimum levels and ratios are supplied to help ensure a balanced diet for maintenance and performance. The more biologically available forms promote the immune system, sustaining overall health, especially in horses under stress.
Advanced Antioxidant Package: Natural Tocopherols, Vitamin E and Stable Vitamin C - As potent antioxidants, these nutrients support tissue integrity and function, maximize immune response and help maintain optimal health and metabolism.
B-Complex Vitamins (including Biotin) - Actively involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein into usable energy for performance. Added B vitamins support healthy growth of skin, hair and hooves.
Yeast Culture - Sustains a healthy, functional microbial fermentation in the horse cecum and colon, helping to minimize digestive upsets and support efficient nutrient digestibility.
