Forage is the foundation of every equine’s diet and needs to flow steadily through the digestive tract. Gaps without forage can lead to ulcers, colic, behavioural issues, stall vices, gorging, choke, cribbing, and even laminitis. Truly, the only way to avoid these problems is to allow your horse steady access to forage, free-choice, all day and all night.

Feeding the equine athlete for superior performance requires a balancing act involving science, expertise, and art. It’s not just about maximizing your performance horse’s energy intake or providing good quality grain and forage; successful feeding of the high performance horse involves examining not only how much you are feeding, but what you are feeding and when. It means taking a critical look at where feeding fits into his busy schedule as well as yours. Real success in feeding the performance horse is achieved by feeding for optimum nutrient utilization.
