  • Encouraging fluid intake


  • Fully fortified with vitamins, minerals and electrolytes
  • Complements any existing feeding programme
  • Quick soaking mash ready in 10 minutes with warm water
  • BMC® (Buffered Mineral Complex) for gastric health and bone development
  • Chelated minerals for improved absorption
  • Vistacell Live Yeast for increased nutrient digestibility
  • Highly appetising banana flavour

Re-Vive Mash is a fully fortified, correctly balanced, highly appetising mash designed to maintain appetite, and to support rehydration and recovery rates. For horses on box rest, the mash can be used as part of their daily feeding programme to provide additional 'super-fibres' or to mask medication. Feeding a mash to help with hydration can be extremely beneficial as it does assist with their overall water intake. Their fluid and electrolyte intake will be easier to manage, and once mixed with water, the mash should be fed immediately after soaking (for 5-10 minutes with lukewarm water, for 10-15 minutes with cold water - please do not use boiling water).

This palatable mash is a blend of highly digestible soluble fibres and carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and electrolytes, which provides a source of key nutrients needed for optimum recovery and fluid intake. With a tempting banana flavouring, the mash can be used to top dress a current feed regime or fed alone to encourage appetite.

As it is fully fortified, Re-Vive Mash can be fed alongside any existing feeding programme and will provide additional support through the inclusion of BMC® and yeast. BMC® (Buffered Mineral Complex) supports digestive function through the regulation of gastric and hindgut pH, which, in conjunction with Vistacell yeast, ensures optimum digestive health and function.

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 Nutrition Team on 01622 718487 or call the Thoroughbred Office on 01488 73456.

Feed Bodyweight Frequency Instructions
100 g - 200 g per 100 kg of bodyweight As required, alongside regular daily feed and forage Mix one part Re-Vive Mash with one part water. Please do not use boiling water.
Feeding requirements will vary subject to individual needs, level of work, body condition and feed management practices. To discuss the needs of your stud or yard, please contact one of our Thoroughbred Specialists who will be able to tailor a feeding plan, taking into consideration all aspects of the diet, from forage sources to feeds and supplements.

BMC® (Buffered Mineral Complex) is a natural mineral source that is high in bioavailable minerals including calcium, magnesium, boron, silicone, iodine, zinc, and manganese. BMC is used in all of the specialist feeds in our breeding range following extensive research by Kentucky Equine Research (KER) into the positive effects on digestive health and bone development.

BMC® and Bone Development
Research into racehorses in training supplemented with Triacton, a supplement containing BMC plus other key vitamins, was proven effective at increasing bone density after just 90 days of supplementation. Feeding Triacton increased the density of the dorsal cortex of the cannon bone by three-fold whilst also doubling bone thickness and increasing bone area.

BMC® and Digestive Health
BMC® has a high buffering capacity making it an important supplement, particularly for all thoroughbreds when hard feed intake can increase and forage intake decrease. Horses in training or in sales prep are more likely to suffer from gastric ulceration, but BMC® is proven to double the buffering capacity of the stomach after feeding. BMC® is present in every meal of all Saracen Thoroughbred Specialist Feeds.

The prevalence of ulcers can be high for thoroughbreds, which can result in the frequent use of omeprazole. Researchers found that omeprazole reduced calcium digestibility in mature horses by nearly 18%, but did not affect the digestibility of other nutrients. Horses routinely receiving omeprazole should have their calcium intake reviewed and may benefit from a marine-derived calcium source, which is more digestible than calcium carbonate.

BMC® also supports hindgut health through buffering acidity found within the hindgut. As thoroughbred diets generally require a higher intake of hard feed to meet elevated nutrient requirements, the risk for hindgut acidosis is higher. Changes in hindgut pH negatively affect the bacteria that reside in the hindgut and are responsible for digestion. Through helping to maintain the optimum pH for beneficial bacteria BMC® supports digestive function. BMC® is proven to increase the buffering capacity of the hindgut by 54%.

Natural Vitamin E as found in pasture has a high level of bioavailability. Natural vitamin E, also available as Nano-E in liquid format, is used in Saracen’s Specialist Thoroughbred Feeds to improve overall efficacy of Vitamin E in the diet. The combination of synthetic and natural vitamin E enhances the dietary effect of this important vitamin. Benefits of vitamin E include antioxidant capacity, immune function and increased IgG levels of broodmares and their colostrum.

Vistacell live yeast is a proven and effective yeast specifically studied in equines. Saracen Horse Feeds contain the recommended daily intake of Vistacell yeast proven to increase digestion of both protein and fibre. The markers ADF and NDF relate to various fibrous components found within the plant cells of both grains and forages. Increasing digestion of protein and fibre directly benefits the health and performance of all horses at every stage of breeding, growth and development.
