Are you worried that your horse’s current diet isn’t providing the required nutrients they need? Is your horse looking or acting differently than they used to? If you are looking for the best nutrition for your horse’s diet, our balancers for horses can help.

Balancers address the nutritional deficiencies in your horse’s diet. They are a blend of minerals and vitamins, added to your horse’s bucket feed, to wholly balance your horse’s diet and provide optimal nutrition.

Can Horse Feed Balancers Help to Improve Your Horse’s Health?
"I can’t believe the difference it has made to my horse's feet. He had good feet in the first place, but we moved to a new yard and something wasn’t quite right, I just couldn’t put my finger on it - he wasn’t himself. I now have my old horse back and he is rock crunching once again. [...] It hasn’t taken long to see a huge difference."

NRC Horse Nutrition
The NRC's document "The Nutrient Requirements of Horses" is comprised of the best peer-reviewed scientific research for horses.
Nutrition for Every Horse

The Nutrient Requirements of Horses
Equine nutritionists and the manufacturers of quality horse feed supplements refer to "The Nutrient Requirements of Horses" to guide all of their recommendations and formulations, for optimal horse health and well-being.
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your advice with the balancer. I ordered the hoof and skin balancer after your advice and it’s day 6 of feeding it to my mare and I’m already starting to see a difference! She must have been lacking these vitamins and minerals as for the past 2 days she has been a million times more settled in her field. She had been pacing at the fence line a lot since moving yards but the past 2 days this hasn’t happened, she’s been so much happier and more chilled out. I’m unsure how long it takes to get in to their system but I am 99% sure that the difference in her is because I started putting the supplement in with her feed."
