Show jumping and cross country riding place strenuous metabolic demands on your horse, requiring it to draw heavily on energy reserves to fuel muscle contraction, sometimes for extended periods. Energy levels will directly affect whether or not your horse can go the distance.
Your feed should not only fuel your horse for longer periods of exercise at a slower speed, it must also help offset the effects of dehydration, electrolyte imbalance and the depletion of muscle mass that contribute to fatigue and poor performance.
What Quality Sport Feeds Should Deliver
Slow Release Energy Sources
A quality feed for the sport horse should not only provide the correct balance of energy producing starch and essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and Omega 6) for muscle building, it must include slow release energy sources such as quality fibre and a quality oil. Fiskens Advance Mix is designed specifically for the needs of sport horses in heavy work, using quality cold pressed Canola Oil and high protein soya bean fibre that can be stored in your horse’s body and metabolised later during exercise.
A properly balanced feeding programme for the sport horse can reduce fatigue, help to build muscle mass and provide vital energy reserves. Fiskens Advance Mix eliminates the guesswork so you can deliver the right nutritional balance for optimal performance in your horse. It is the perfect complement for pasture and on most properties no other supplementation will be required.
Taste & Quality
Appetite can diminish under the physical stress of prolonged activity, so taste and quality ingredients are vital in a feed. Fiskens Advance Mix is highly palatable, easily digestible and made fresh. It contains the correct balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 for equine diets and molasses for a pleasant and palatable taste.
