COMPETITION-FIT-MIX

High Energy Competition Mix

Suitable For:

  • Competition horses & ponies requiring instant energy
  • Competition horses & ponies with a limited appetite
  • Competition horses & ponies requiring maximal power productivity for work
  • Good-Doers requiring additional energy as part of a ‘two part’ feeding regime

Features & benefits:

  • Instant energy cereal-based mix
  • Supports natural recovery patterns with the replacement of glycogen post exercise
  • Utilises a variety of energy sources to optimise power generation
  • A unique red apple flavouring to maintain palatability
  • Precise inclusion of recommended live yeast to support gut flora health
  • High quality protein source to optimise peak muscle health and encourage maintenance of topline and muscle definition

COMPETITION-FIT-MIX utilises a variety of micronised cereals to ensure power output is maximised. The inclusion of digestible fibre helps to top up the performance horse’s fibre intake, while the added oil helps support multiple competitive rounds by optimising energy metabolism.

The high-quality protein sources support cell, tissue and muscle repair to ensure mobility and athletic potential is maintained in the performance horse. The extensive spectrum of vitamins and minerals ensures optimum nutrient absorption, whilst maintaining normal muscle function and immune health. Optimum levels of antioxidants help to support the horse from potential free radical damage.

COMPETITION-FIT-MIX contains a live yeast to help support a healthy environment in the hindgut, which is especially important in performance horses that may be fed lower forage and higher concentrate feed rations. Yeast also has many other benefits including optimum feed utilisation and maintenance of appetite in the performance horse.

The addition of a unique encapsulated red apple flavouring encourages even the fussiest feeders to eat well and ensures feed intakes are maintained.


Testimonials

INSTANT ENERGY FOR THE AGEING COMPETITION HORSE

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
1.0 -2.0 kg 200 - 400 kg Per day
2.0 - 3.5kg 400 - 600kg Per day
3.5 upto 5.0kg >600kg 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 per day.

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.

COMPETITION-FIT-MIX has been flavoured with an encapsulated red apple flavour to entice fussy feeders. Encapsulation means that the flavour is protected and released through the physical process of chewing. Encapsulation is more beneficial than essences and oils as they both tend to lose taste and aroma very quickly.

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

Carbohydrates (cereals) have been shown to aid in muscle glycogen repletion when fed post exercise. Studies have shown that horses receiving a cereal based meal following high level exercise will replenish muscle glycogen stores faster than horses fed a solely fibre-based meal (Lacombe et al., 2004). COMPETITION-FIT-MIX contains oats, micronised maize and barley to aid in recovery post exercise and repletion of muscle glycogen stores to support optimal athletic performance.
