Re-leve® is a high-performance mix, specifically designed to replace all cereal and hard feed for horses in work that have a nervous disposition, or react adversely to high starch levels. “Super-fibres” and oils provide a safe energy source, especially for horses prone to tying up, or those with difficult temperaments. 

Re-leve® is a performance ration that has been based on extensive collaborative research carried out by Dr Stephanie Valberg, at the University of Minnesota, and Kentucky Equine Research in Lexington.

Re-leve® provides the equine athlete with the levels of energy required for performance using a variety of alternative energy sources to cereals. Highly fermentable fibres and high oil levels reduce the reliance on starch, and high levels of antioxidants, Vitamin E and selenium, are included to assist normal muscle function.

It is recommended that 0.5–1 kg of Equi-Jewel® (rice bran supplement) is fed daily alongside Re-leve® to boost energy levels, if required. This palatable supplement is naturally high in oil and fibre, but low in starch, so it is a very compatible product.

Re-Leve also contains a fortified soya hull fibre pellet to provide a concentrated source of proteins, trace elements and yeast. The inclusion of a yeast culture that is specifically designed for the equine ensures optimal microbial activity, which in turn helps to promote enzyme production that enhances phosphorous, magnesium and potassium absorption as well as promoting fibre digestion.

High levels of antioxidant micronutrients, such as vitamin E and selenium, are included together with daily levels of electrolytes to assist normal muscle function. An electrolyte such as Restore should be fed in addition in most cases and horses should always receive at least 1.5% of their bodyweight as good quality forage.

Oil 9.0%
Protein 13.0%
Fibre 19.4%
Digestible Energy 12.9 MJ/kg
Starch 7.8%
Vitamin A 11,000 IU/kg
Vitamin D3 1,100 IU/kg
Vitamin E (E-Max Ester) 360 IU/kg
Selenium 0.5 mg/kg
Sugar 5.6%

Re-Leve-2

Always try to feed a minimum of 1.5% of bodyweight as good quality forage. e.g. 500kg horse would eat 7.5kg of hay per day.

THESE FEEDING RATES ARE INTENDED AS A GUIDE ONLY

BODYWEIGHT/KG FEED/KG
200-400kg 1.0 - 2.0kg
400-600kg 2.0 - 3.5kg
>600kg 3.5 up to 5.0kg

N.B These feed levels give the minimum and maximum feeding rates for each range of bodyweights (BW), ie a pony of any BW between 200-400kg could be fed between 1-2kg per day depending on their requirements.

After emailing and receiving VERY helpful information, I decided to give Re-leve a go, I'm so pleased that I've found what my horse thinks is a mix that tastes yummy and its something he really likes. He is 35 but thinks he's 3 and its done him the world of good. I feed equijewel alongside it if I need to put a little extra weight on, as he had lami few years back I have to watch what I give him and keep an eye on his weight. I was concerned when they added the blackcurrant but had some samples which he ate no problem, so I am not concerned when it eventually filters through to my supplier. Thank you saracen, you've made an old man and his mummy very happy :-)

My Quarter horse has chronic PSSM, he had lost so much condition last winter he looked like a coat rack we had tried so many other feeds. I can't praise Re-Leve enough my boy looks better than he's ever done and he's just started coming back into work. Truly amazing! Thanks.

Re-leve has been fantastic for my TB ex race horse. I also contacted the advice line to ensure this was the correct product and the speed and efficiency of the service was brilliant. They told me to continue with the re-leve and tweaked the amounts and now he has fantastic condition, spot on weight for an eventer and he recovers well from his events. I would thoroughly recommend this product!

Releve was recommended to me for my warmblood who was quite spooky. I felt he was lacking a bit of go but I was concerned about giving him something that would hot him up. I need not have worried !! After starting on Releve he was more forward and easier to train, he remained steady and didn't heat up. This allowed me to get more out of him during a schooling session so his training was able to take a step forward and we progressed quicker. My horse looked fantastic on Releve and he loved the taste. I have recommended it to others due to the great results I had.

I've been really pleased with the improvement in my horses since starting them on Re-leve. I started buying it just for my ex-racer but it made such a difference to him in terms of temperament and way of going, I now feed 5 of my 8 horses Re-leve and the other three will be fed on it during the winter months.

After a difficult wet winter and a lack of turnout my 4 yo exracer lost his condition but thanks to Saracens wonderful advisers I decided to give RE-LEVE a try. It worked wonders, in fact it worked so well he started to get a little bit tubby so we had to swap to the Essential Balancer! Not once did my boy get hot headed on this food and he can sometimes be a bit fussy with what he eats but I can tell he LOVES meal times now. Thanks Saracen - I would recommend this to anyone

I called the helpline for advise last winter after purchasing a very green and stressy Gelderlander. He was dropping weight but we were struggling to keep his mind balanced and his weight on. I received fantastic support and advice from the helpline who advised I try him on Re-Leve. He quickly became calmer and his condition improved!

Re-leve is a fantastic Mix suited ideally for the stress Thoroughbred performance horse. It's high levels of 'Super-fibres' ensure that your horse receives an energy source so that it can perform and function to the high demands it needs without 'overloading' them and making them too hot to handle! With Re-leve you don't have to feed huge quantities in order to get the results which certainly aids your wallet, however, if you ever need an extra bit of help Re-leve works fabulously alongside Equi-Jewel to promote weight gain, again in a controlled (energy levelled) way!! Since moving on to Re-leve I've noticed healthier skin and shinier coats on all the horses and its comforting to know that it promotes healthier gut's and digestive systems. The palatability of Re-leve is fantastic now that it incorporates Blackcurrant flavouring- so even the fussiest of horse's can't resist it!

I feed Re-Leve to my 14 year old advanced dressage horse after discussing options with Sharron Harrington at Saracen.
My horse can struggle to hold weight at times and can also hot up, Re-Leve provides the ultimate balance in managing his weight and energy correctly. My feed bills have reduced considerably since switching to Re-Leve
Great product!

Having a big young warmblood with allergies it limits the feeds available to you, add that to finding a feed with a high enough digestible energy for performance without containing cereals and it's near impossible. Saracen RE-Leve is my saviour. It has a digestible energy level which matches most competition mixes without causing any reaction in his skin. My vet also highly recommends this feed after hearing of similar stories such as mine.

Quality Control

Every bag of Saracen feed is manufactured in a UFAS accredited mill, and undergoes strictly documented quality control procedures. A comprehensive system is in place to ensure the consistency and quality of all products manufactured by Saracen Horse Feeds for equine use.

Saracen Horse Feeds joined the new code of practice for feed manufacturers that the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) put in place on 1st October 2009. The Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS), Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances (NOPS) Code has been developed by BETA in response to the increased incidence of positive dope tests in racehorses. The NOPS scheme, whilst not a guarantee, is a risk-assessment based approach to reducing the chance of feed being contaminated with naturally occurring prohibited substances, such as morphine, for example.

Both the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and the National Trainers Federation (NTF) have endorsed the BETA NOPS Code, which is now incorporated into our UFAS annual audit. As an approved member of the new code, we use the logo like a kite mark, a sign of reassurance to owners and trainers of the stringent quality management procedures that have been undertaken during every step of the sourcing, storage, transport and manufacturing processes for each product.

Saracen operate a strict bonding policy as part of its manufacturing process for our racing range of products (clearly marked on our packaging with a "bonded" symbol). These products are bonded and kept in isolation in a designated quarantine area at our main site in Aylesford prior to release for sale. To clear our bonding process, aggregate samples from each batch are submitted to the Horse Racing Forensic Laboratory (HFL) in Newmarket.

HFL Sports Science has been testing commercially prepared feed for the horseracing industry for over 20 years. They offer a screening service designed to assist feed manufacturers in their quality control process. Analysis is performed to high international standards (ISO 17025) using state of the art mass spectrometric detection systems, capable of detecting contaminants at very low levels (ng/g). The product is only released for sale on receipt of a certificate from the HFL stating that with regards to caffeine & theobromine "None were found".
