Let Everything Horse UK point you in the right direction with a little help
in understanding more about particular supplements available
for your horse; February’s focus Breathing, Digestion &
In this months issue of Supplement Savy we look more closely at supplements from Dengie, EQUIMINS and
Alltech, all of which focus on three factors that can effect our horses well being during the winter months;
Breathing, Digestion and Performance.
Poor quality forage and lack of ventilation in stables/barns can often effect our horses breathing. Prolonged
stabling in the winter months can often lead to respiratory problems such as COPD. There are many supplements on the market today that are uniquely formed to help horses ‘breath easy’.
Good digestion is key to a horses mood, temperament and well being. Standing still for long periods and the
reduction of their natural forage during the winter means supplements are often recommended to help maximise digestive capabilities.
Performance supplements are essential for the horse in ‘harder’ and more demanding types of work, they allow for essential nutrients to be replenished after strenuous exercise or competition and help maximise your
horses recovery period.
