Feeding & Application
The modern riding horse has to fulfill completely different tasks than its relatives in the wild: it is faced with physical and psychological challenges that no longer have much in common with life of the wild horses. In addition the usage in high performance sports, feeding is an important factor in keeping the animals healthy. Cultivated pasture and hay areas, for example, hardly offer the variety of vitamins, minerals and trace elements that the (sport) horse urgently needs to remain productive and healthy.
Therefore, an individual feeding with supplements is useful and even necessary for many horses. It is important to decide what each horse needs individually: The feed should always be tailored to its age, breed, performance level and any health problems. We would be happy to advise you individually which supplements are suitable for your horse.
The feed should always be tailored to age, breed, level of performance and any health problems.
You can use our product finder for an initial overview: In just two clicks, it takes you to a suitable selection of products that can support your horse.
Of course, our expert advice is also available to you. We respond individually to your request and the needs of your horse.
You can answer many questions about your horse in the consultation form so that our team of veterinarians and experts can get as accurate a picture of your horse and the problem as possible.
The feeding time is less important than the regularity.
All of our supplements only need to be administered once a day. Here it is ideal if the feeding time is roughly the same - e.g. always in the morning or in the evening.
If you want to split the daily dose into several small portions, you are welcome to do so. However, it is not necessary to achieve the optimal effect.
Yes - different supplements can be combined with each other and fed at the same time, as long as they do not contradict each other in terms of their area of action (e.g. calmers and energy boosters).
However, there are ingredients that influence each other's effects or that block absorption by the body. An example of this are e.g. calcium and zinc: Products with a high calcium content inhibit the effect of zinc. Such products should therefore be fed as far apart as possible. Corresponding information on this can be found in our feeding recommendations for each product.
into the bowl just before serving, to protect the sensitive ingredients from the preparation with hot water.
Alternatively, all products in liquid form (liquids) can also be administered directly into the horse's mouth via syringe.
Unfortunately, despite clever recipes, we cannot prevent some natural raw materials from having a very intense smell or taste and therefore being bitter, salty or spicy.
We try to avoid flavorings and sweeteners as far as possible - but this also means that the supplements are initially treated with some skepticism by the horse.
Many horses react to unfamiliar smells and tastes by refusing food - but they usually get used to it very quickly. Feeding concentrated feed, muesli or mash can be helpful for finicky horses, into which only small amounts of the supplement are mixed initially. In our long-term tests, 92% of all customer horses got used to the new additional feed after a few days and eat it completely.
Nevertheless, it is advisable to take a regular break of two to three weeks after a few months of continuous feeding before starting again.
"As much as necessary, as little as possible": A pause is used, among other things, to check whether feeding the supplement is still necessary or whether the dosage can be adjusted.
Opened liquid products should be used up quickly after opening. When not in use, these can also be kept in the fridge for a short time during the summer.
Products in powder form should be carefully sealed to protect from moisture.
The BBD always refers to the last day of the month.
A product is not necessarily inedible after the best-before date has expired. From this point on, however, the consistency and appearance of the product can change, and vitamins and minerals can gradually evaporate and no longer have the usual effect.
Tournaments & Doping
In Germany the "Anti-Doping and Drug Control Rules" (ADMR) of the German Equestrian Federation (FN) apply. In international competitions, these rules are determined by the Fédération Équestre Internationale (FEI). The two regulations differ and sometimes allow or ban different substances.
The focus of our supplements lies in the combination of effective raw materials that are nevertheless doping-free, so that feeding them cannot lead to a rule conflict. It is always important that the feeding recommendations for each product are followed exactly.
Already knew? 80% of our product portfolio is completely doping-free - even according to both ADMR and FEI rules!
In connection with feed, the waiting period defines the time during which the feed could cause a positive doping result in a control.
Some ingredients can have a strong performance-enhancing or stimulating effect and are therefore prohibited in national and international competitions.
The waiting period is given in hours (usually 24 to 94 hours) and indicates how long before a sporting tournament the product may no longer be fed.
A supplement with a waiting period of 48 hours should therefore no longer be administered two days before the tournament. During this period, the horse excretes the active ingredients naturally, so that they are no longer detectable in the blood or urine, or only in very small and permissible amounts.
The ingredients are specially designed to be absorbed and metabolized by the horse within a short time. We recommend feeding about 2-3 hours before the planned use.
Good to know: All our shoots are of course doping-free (FEI & ADMR tested).
