Nutrition for Your Horse at its Best

horses nutritional needs
As horse owners, trainers, breeders, and managers the most basic issue we address daily is what to feed our horses. There are countless types of hard feeds, hay and roughage out there from which to choose, and everyone has an opinion on what and how much should be fed. When a horse is in active training for NSBA and other competitions, proper nutrition is even more important.

This e-book provides a closer look at the factors that influence your horse’s nutritional needs based on a model presented by the American College of Veterinary Nutrition.

A 3-Part Model from the American College of Veterinary Nutrition

Get an in-depth look at the factors that affect what and how your horse needs to eat for proper nutrition and health:

  • Horse-specific factors—or the horse’s specific age, breed, body type, discipline, activity level, and individual health needs. A halter horse has very different needs than a western showmanship or HUS horse.
  • Dietary factors—or the horse’s current diet and any specific nutrient requirements that aren’t being met, relative to his needs.
  • Feeding-management factors—including the frequency, timing, location and method of feeding.

It will also provide an outline for how to design a feeding program that is both appropriate and safe, based on your horse’s individual needs.
