Concentrated pelleted supplement intended for use as a ration balancer and/or additional nutritional support for overall health, growth, development, and strengthening of bones. Also improves the horse’s natural resistance to environmental stresses.
Horses in training and top sport have a need for a wide variety of easily absorbable nutrients, particularly when not being fed full recommended grain rations. In cooperation with top trainers and riders, Cavalor developed this supplement to enrich feed rations in order to fulfil the daily need for vitamins and nutrients.
DID YOU KNOW?
Often horses are given less than the recommended amounts of concentrate feed for fear of making them “hot”, or given energy in the form of simple grains like barley, oats, or wheat. Care should be taken to ensure that their rations have everything they need. Sport horses have increased requirements for certain nutrients. These include proteins and amino acids for the production and recovery of muscle tissue, electrolytes that are lost during perspiration, B-vitamins that play an important role in energy transport, and antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium that protect muscle cells.
Grass and hay are often high in energy and protein but contain insufficient vitamins and minerals. Deficiencies can also occur when a horse is fed only simple grains such as oats or barley, or less than the recommended amount of concentrate feed. It is therefore important to supplement rations consisting solely or mainly of roughage with vitamins and minerals.
