COMPETITION-FIT-CUBES

Slow Release Competition Cubes

Suitable For:

  • Competition horses & ponies that need a higher energy requirement for work
  • Competition horses & ponies with excitable temperaments but need more ‘oomph’
  • Young horses and ponies starting to move up a training level
  • Horses & ponies with a nervous disposition that need power and stamina

Features & Benefits:

  • Utilises a variety of energy sources to optimise power generation and stamina
  • Supports natural recovery patterns with the replacement of glycogen post exercise
  • Oil and essential amino acids to maintain skin, coat and peak muscle health
  • Optimum inclusion of yeast to support digestive tract health
  • Fully fortified with a full spectrum of vitamins & minerals
  • Mint flavoured to entice fussy feeders

COMPETITION-FIT-CUBES use a combination of fibre and oil sources to provide slow release energy to support stamina and optimise energy metabolism. The use of these energy sources generates power for performance horses, without the high inclusion of cereals making them ideal for horses with a more excitable disposition.

Digestible fibres help to maintain hydration and normal gut function, combating against the ‘tucked’ appearance that can occur in performance horses. A small cereal inclusion helps to maintain power and presence, as well as supporting natural recovery with the replacement of glycogen post performance. The inclusion of high-quality proteins and amino acids helps to support cell, tissue and muscle repair, whilst encouraging the maintenance of topline and muscle definition.

COMPETITION-FIT-CUBES are fully fortified and contain a yeast culture to optimise digestibility and to maximise nutrient absorption. The extensive balance of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants help to support the horse from potential free radical damage and boost the immune system. The inclusion of a mint flavouring enhances palatability making them suitable for fussy feeders and those that can ‘back off their feed’ during periods of increased work intensity.

The feeding rates are offered as a guideline, if you would like to discuss your horse's individual requirements please contact a member of our nutritional team on 01622 718487.

Feed Body weight Frequency
200-400kg 1.0-2.0 kg Per day
400-600kg 2.0-3.5 kg Per day
>600kg 3.5-5.0 kg Per day
These feeding rates are intended as a guide only. Always try to feed a minimum of 1.5% of bodyweight as good quality forage.

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.

Linseed is included within the COMPETITION-FIT-CUBES formulation as linseed is the richest vegetable source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Increasing dietary levels of Omega-3 fatty acids can have extremely beneficial effects on coat and skin condition and can also aid in joint health and mobility. This is extremely beneficial for performance horses and cumulative wear and tear, through work, can leave joints at risk of damage.

COMPETITION-FIT-CUBES contain a live yeast culture which has been shown to increase microbial activity. Saccharomyces cerevisiae supports efficient fibre digestion leading to improved feed and forage utilisation.
