Horse Feed for Veteran Horses
Horses can need a little more care as they get older. Whilst some veteran horses may continue to be good doers and maintain their weight well, others will need additional support to help keep them at optimum body condition.
Our range of feeds for veteran horses takes into consideration their additional nutritional requirements. This includes providing elevated levels of vitamins and minerals and high quality sources of protein to help maintain topline, in an easily digested quality feed. Our feeds are high in fibre to support gut health and low in both sugar and starch. This makes them suitable to feed to older horses that need a low starch diet.
Veteran horses can also be more susceptible to dental issues and so offering a soft chop or mash feed is a much easier option for them to chew.
With low calorie and high calorie options available, Pure Feed can help keep your veteran horse healthy whether they are at rest or still enjoying an active lifestyle.

For veteran horses that are overweight or that put on weight easily our Pure Balance is perfect. It will provide the daily nutrients that they require, including vitamins, minerals and amino acids in the lowest calorie way.
