ESSENTIAL BALANCER is a cost-effective pelleted feed balancer for horses and ponies, which will supply all the necessary nutrients required for health and well-being.

ESSENTIAL BALANCER is whole cereal grain-free, low in sugar, starch, and calories, and is suitable for horses and ponies that are good-doers. Dense in vitamins, minerals, and quality protein sources, ESSENTIAL BALANCER helps to maintain muscle tone and topline as well as supporting optimum health and vitality. A source of Omega 3 fatty acids helps to condition and shine the coat, creating a picture of health inside and out. It provides an excellent source of quality protein to support muscle tone and function as well as encouraging topline development.

ESSENTIAL BALANCER also contains the optimum inclusion of a live yeast that has been shown to help support feed and forage digestibility as well as maintaining a stable gut microflora population during times of stress, e.g. travelling, competing, or sickness.

ESSENTIAL BALANCER also includes a range of micronutrients that are essential to support optimum hoof growth and quality, including calcium, chelated zinc and copper, essential amino acids lysine and methionine, and the recommended amount of biotin (30g/kg) to encourage hoof quality, growth and development.

ESSENTIAL BALANCER can be fed alone to balance a forage only diet or alongside a performance feed such as RE-LEVE® Mix, Enduro-Performance or Competition Fit Mix in a two-part feeding plan to 'top-up' the nutrients.

Feed Body weight Frequency
100g Per 100kg Daily
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.

For a 500kg horse you would need to feed 1 1/2 Saracen balancer cups a day meaning that a 20kg bag will last you 40days.

For a 250kg pony you would need to feed 3/4 of a Saracen balancer cup a day meaning that a 20kg bag will last you 80 days.

Your local stockist should be able to provide you with a balancer cup, please ask someone at the till. Alternatively please email

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. Omega-3 fatty acids can also aid in joint health and mobility.

Biotin had been shown to consistently be the most effective vitamin at improving hoof quality when fed at 30g/kg.
