HOW TO CHOOSE A FEED BALANCER SUPPLEMENT

We all know the importance of our own diet being balanced, and horses are no different. A balanced diet is required to keep horses in good condition and allow them to perform the work asked of them. Recovery from exercise can be influenced by the quality of the diet.

A balancer is designed to supply vitamins, minerals and trace elements that are commonly lacking in everyday forage. They also supply protein to support muscle development and repair. The ideal balancer should supply prebiotics and probiotics to support healthy digestive function. Balancers should be sugar free.
