SHOW IMPROVER CUBES are a barley and oat free cube that contains Equi-jewel® to help maintain a steady temperament whilst supporting optimum muscle development and topline. SHOW IMPROVER CUBES are a conditioning feed designed specifically with the show horse in mind. The barley and oat free recipe used in this highly rated conditioning feed helps to provide a lower starch content than is typically found in traditional conditioning feeds of this type.

The use of "Super-Fibres" enables the ration to remain calorie dense, whilst at the same time providing a lower starch level which is ideal to maintain a calm and even temperament in the show ring.

For outstanding coat shine and to support topline development, Equi-Jewel®, a rice bran supplement very effective at adding condition and topline has been carefully blended into this conditioning diet. Equi-Jewel®, formulated by Kentucky Equine Research (KER), is unique to Saracen Horse Feeds who are the sole UK Team Member for KER. The use of Equi-Jewel® increases the calorific content of this conditioning diet and provides an effective source of essential fatty acids. Fatty acids help to promote healthy skin condition and coat shine and the inclusion of soya oil also contributes to coat condition quality.

The careful balance of the ingredients within SHOW IMPROVER CUBES produces a unique, non-heating conditioning feed that will help to encourage all over body condition and optimal muscle tone development when used in conjunction with a suitable exercise programme.

SHOW IMPROVER CUBES are fully fortified with vitamins and chelated minerals. These minerals can help with complimenting natural stress resistance and the immune system, plus improving coat bloom and skin and hoof quality. The addition of a yeast culture ensures optimum microbial activity, enhancing fibre digestion and utilisation of the feed.

Feed Bodyweight Frequency
1.0-2.0 kg 200-400kg Daily
2.0- 3.5kg 400-600kg Daily
3.5-5.0kg >600kg 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.

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.

Scientific research has proven Equi-Jewel®’s superiority in optimising performance in the athletic horse. During strenuous exercise, horses fed Equi-Jewel® had lower lactic acid levels than horses fed corn oil, optimising their stamina. Also, when Equi-Jewel®was used as a replacement for vegetable oil in the horse's feed, studies have shown the subjects displayed lower heart rates and subsequent shorter recovery periods after strenuous exercise (Kennedy et al. 1999).

SHOW IMPROVER 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.
