For some competition horses a more instant source of energy is required for them to be able to perform at their peak. For this we have our Pure Performance feed, providing optimum power and energy. It contains oats for an instant source of energy and fibre and oil to promote stamina. Our Pure Performance is a dual energy feed. With our balancer included, quality protein is provided to aid topline development and vitamin E to support the horse’s muscles. The high fibre content also helps support a healthy digestive system. Our Pure Performance feed is designed to meet the demands of the competiton horse.
Pure Feed customer and dressage rider Izzy Chaplin explains how Pure Performance suits her horse below:
Vinnie is a 17 year old KWPN stallion who I have been riding for 3 years. We started off at PSG/ Young riders together and are now competing at U25s Grand Prix and aiming to do an international later this year. This year we became the BD Petplan Inter II national champions at the British Dressage Winter Championships. We are also part of the young professionals quadrille that has performed at the Royal Windsor Horse Show and internationals including Bolesworth CDI and Hickstead CDI.
“Perfect amount of energy without getting fizzy”
I first started feeding Vinnie the pure feeds conditioning mix as I felt that to begin with he needed to gain a lot more muscle. Once I felt that he had built sufficient muscle, I wanted a feed with a slightly higher energy content and this is where the pure feeds performance mix slotted in perfectly. When training the higher level movements, especially when in a test, I need to have a feed that has both fast and slow release energy so the mix of oats and oil perfectly provides this.
I have had so many comments on how well Vinnie looks and how he looks much younger than 17. He feels like he has the perfect amount of energy without getting ‘fizzy’ and has no trouble dancing round a Grand Prix test. At Windsor this year, despite having 3 performances and 3 full dress rehearsals, he still felt fresh at the end of the week.
