Balancers – Helping to Keep Your Horse in the Peak Of Health.

At The Healthy Horse Company© we are proud to supply our customers with a range of premium specification, high quality balancers for horses.  Our Balancers, Premixes and Blends are manufactured in a UFAS (Universal Feed Assurance Scheme), BETA NOPS (Naturally Occuring Prohibited Sustances) certified facility using the highest quality ingredients which conform to all UK and EU legislation relating to the manufacture of animal feeding stuffs. Our formulations are based on the National Research Council (NRC) guidelines and recommended ratios.

So, what is a Balancer?

A Horse Feed Balancer is a feed supplement that provides your horse with a range of ingredients to bridge recognised vitamin and mineral deficiencies in UK forage, and which also provides them in the correct ratios to optimize uptake.  Our Balancers may also provide ingredients to support digestive health, omega oils to support healthy joints, and various vitamins.  Balancers can also include pre-mixes of just two or more ingredients for specific issues – e.g. to support joint or digestive health.

Care should be taken when comparing levels of nutrients in Balancers as some well-known companies list the level of vitamins and minerals present in a kilogram of product.  At first glance, the mineral levels may sound impressive, but when calculated to that being fed, are present in very minimal amounts which are not beneficial. This also applies to pre-mixes of just two or more ingredients.  Here at The Healthy Horse Company© we prefer to list the ingredients in our Balancers per 75g/100g or per serving so that it is easier to identify what your horse will receive.  We also declare all the ingredients and do not use any fillers.

Our core values are clarity and transparency!
