It’s IN the BAG

Follow this 4-point bag tag checklist to choose the right feed for your horse.

When you wander through a feed store, there are many brands of equine feed, and each one has many specialized feed formulations. But what does your horse need? Here’s how to read the feed tags and zero in on what matters most.

| How Much do I Need to Feed? |

Although bagged feeds can technically include hay pellets, ration balancers and other types of equine nutrition products, here we’re going to focus on concentrates—that is, concentrated calories used to supplement a diet of mostly hay.

If your horse is used for light pleasure riding or moderate exercise, forage (hay or pasture) should comprise most of his diet. Horses that don’t have fulltime access to pasture grazing are usually fed hay at least twice a day. Depending on the type, quality and amount of hay fed, additional calories may be required to keep a horse in good weight.
