Lite Feed Balancer is designed for horses and ponies that are good-doers. It is ideal for horses that are overweight when fed as part of a calorie-controlled diet. These are the horses and ponies for whom every single calorie counts, and we do not believe you will find a lower calorie feed balancer anywhere.
Lite Feed Balancer is a ‘Non-Heating’, cereal-grain-free formula; with low levels of starch and sugar, and a considered level of protein to help maintain muscle function but avoid promoting body condition.
It is very important that this group of horses and ponies receive their full requirement of vitamins and minerals.Lite Feed Balancer allows them to receive all the micronutrients required to balance the diet of horses in light to medium work in a small amount of exceptionally low-calorie feed.
Lite Feed Balancer will help maintain excellent health whilst greatly improving hoof quality and promoting a supple skin and an exceptionally shiny coat. It is so palatable that it can be fed on its own, or with a little TopChop Lite.
Long term trials have shown that horses and ponies on restricted/poor grazing do not gain any additional weight when fed Lite Feed Balancer. It can also be used very successfully as part of a calorie-controlled diet when weight loss is required.
Lite Feed Balancer is suitable for horses and ponies that have recovered from laminitis providing they are not obese. Our nutritionists recommend TopSpec AntiLam is fed to horses and ponies at serious risk of laminitis, being treated for or recovering from laminitis, to provide a higher level of nutritional support.
