Health and Nutrition
At Hof Equine, we believe every horse should have the best chance to reach their highest potential, whatever they do. Time and time again, we have improved both horses’ and their owner’s well being through the use of nutritional strategies that are catered to the individual horse, or individual stable, while making sure to include the client’s needs as well. We know that each horse, and each client, have their own specific needs and we strive to meet those needs to the best of our ability. Every ration we design is developed with the horse’s best health and welfare in mind. Call us today to start your horse on the path to better health!
We can analyse your horse’s current diet and provide you with a report on what nutrients they’re getting or not getting from this current diet. The report will include energy, protein, fat, minerals and vitamins, as well as an explanation about all these!
We can design a diet for your horse that suits all their nutrient needs as best as possible. We can even take into consideration special dietary requirements and your needs as the owner when designing the diet.
WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOUR HORSE
A LAMINITIC-FRIENDLY DIET
We can design a diet for your laminitic horse that may reduce the incidence or severity of laminitic flare-ups, reduce inflammation and get your horse back on-track for a healthy happy life.
REDUCE THE “FIZZINESS” WITHOUT COMPROMISING PERFORMANCE
Many behavioural issues such as “fizziness” or spooking may be due to certain feeds in your horse’s diet. We can analyse your horse’s current ration and design a new improved diet which may help reduce this undesirable behaviour, allowing you to better enjoy your time with your horse, and leave you free to work on the things you want to.
REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF SWELLING AND INFLAMMATION
Frequent or overly severe swelling and inflammation, such as in hoof abscesses and some lameness, may be caused by an imbalance of Omega 3 to Omega 6 in your horse’s diet. We can design a diet that puts Omega 3 and Omega 6 in the best possible balance, which may help reduce the severity and/or incidence of swelling and inflammation.
FEED INTOLERANCES AND ALLERGIES
Some horses, like humans, may be intolerant or allergic to certain feeds. If a dietary intolerance or allergy has been identified or suspected for your horse, we can design a feed that best suits your horse, making sure to exclude the offending feed.
FEED FOR BEST PERFORMANCE, WITHOUT COMPROMISING HEALTH AND WELFARE
Here at Hof Equine Nutrition, we love problem solving! We will find the best feed to help boost performance, while making sure that your horse has the best possible health and welfare from their diet.
