What Kind of Feed Does My Horse Need – Part 1

The basics of horse nutrition are simple: horses need hay and grain.

A horse’s diet should consist of mostly forage (hay), supplemented with grain and other feeds as needed. The type and amount of feed that is best for your horse will depend on its age, activity level, health, breed, and size.

Young horses have different nutritional needs than more mature horses; keep this in mind when choosing feed for your horse. Similarly, a horse used for light work such as leisure riding requires less energy from their diet than a horse used for competition or race training.

It is important to provide your horse with the correct ratio of roughage to concentrate (grain) in their daily rations. For horse’s at rest and with low exercise levels, the ratio should be 75-25 respectively. For horse’s with moderate levels of activity, the ration should consist of equal parts roughage and concentrate. Active horse’s need more energy than inactive horse’s, so their ration should contain more concentrate (50-50) and less roughage.
