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.

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.

This is a fantastic feed, especially for retired racehorses. It's non fizzing and they look fantastic on it. It is easily supplemented with Equijewel if you are having a busy time with your horse or have increased it's work load dramatically and need a bit extra energy.

Many thanks to Ms. Natalia Davis,
My 13-year-old Trakehner really loves Re-Leve.
He's now more forward going on his work, and willing to work!

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".
