How to feed your horse after competition

Jane Buchan from Baileys horse feeds explains how to feed your horse after a competition.

 

Jane gave her advice for feeding an event horse during a competition here, but what about afterwards?

 

Once you are home, the horse should receive their normal feed. Even if the day after the competition will be a day off, the exertions of the event will have drawn on nutrient reserves and will need replenishing.

 

If you want to reduce calorie intake before a day off, top up the diet with a balancer to maintain the right level of vitamin, mineral and protein intake.
