In addition, we have formulated Hoof and Skin Health Summer horse feed balancer so that it is the ultimate balancer covering all your horse’s other needs as long as he/she is on a forage-based diet and in maintenance, light or moderate work.

All Forageplus Balancers are powders, are very low in sugar and starch, contain no fillers and only the highest purity minerals and vitamins for the lowest iron formulation. The minerals used are of high quality to ensure against contamination with heavy metals and enable good absorption rates.

All Forageplus Balancers are best carried in a high fibre, fast soak feed or chop of your choice. If your horse is on a reduced grass or hay/haylage only diet then Winter Hoof Health Balancer is perfect as it contains high levels of vitamin E to maintain antioxidant processes to help neutralise against free radicals in the body.

Forageplus recommends the feeding of additional micronised linseed throughout the winter months or if a horse is on a predominantly hay/haylage diet. This will ensure good levels of the essential fat omega 3 to maintain and support excellent health.

“We had our grass and hay analysed and Forageplus showed us that this horse feed balancer would match our forage mineral deficiencies perfectly.   My horse is bouncing with healthy hooves. My vet and farrier are astounded and now recommend everyone to try Forageplus products.”  Carol Bent, Gloucestershire

Forageplus Summer Hoof Health Equine horse feed balancer matches nutrients to the forage consumed by a horse. Supplying correct levels of nutrients in forage, as matched to ratios determined by the National Research Council, is an important consideration when maintaining and supporting:

  • healthy structurally sound, crack and brittle free, robust hooves with a strong laminae connection
  • healthy frogs
  • healthy skin
  • vibrant, shiny coat colour without coat bleaching
  • robust tendons, ligaments and joints
  • a strong immune system
  • healthy muscles
  • healthy nerves
  • healthy lungs and breathing
  • a well functioning metabolic system
  • good fertility and bone
  • a healthy digestive system
  • strong liver function
  • healthy joints
  • good growth in young horses

  1. Elizabeth

    My horse seems more relaxed and is not as tense throughout his body since using this product. There is no problem getting it down him as he licks his bucket clean afterwards!

  2. Ciaramunn (verified owner)

    The difference this supplement has made on my 4 years old hooves and coat has been amazing. After 4 weeks you could see the new growth half way down the hoof. His hooves are stronger than ever before. I had him on other supplements last year but they didn’t make half as much of an impact.
    In terms of his general well being, he looks healthier than ever. His coat is gleaming even though he is out during the day with no rug on. This product is definitely worth the price as it has ultimately reduced my costs in other supplements and products.

    I’ve only been using this balancer for 3 weeks, but already there are changes. My 20yr old tb mare has changed coat colour she was a dappled bay. Now she is definitely a dark dappled bay. My boy a Welsh d x, has always had reasonable feet but since he has been diagnosed with navicular, I wanted to get the best feet he could possibly have, and the soles of his feet have already hardened off. I will continue to use this balancer, but may upgrade to a bespoke one.

  5. Nikkiandcassie30 (verified owner)

    Love this product! My horse has never looked and felt so healthy!
    It really shows in her hooves, coat and temperament!

  6. Tricia Callow (verified owner)

    My horse had never had good feet – brittle, breaking and always losing shoes. He’d been on other additives for hooves for most of his life. I replaced these AND another general additive with Hoof and Skin Health Summer Balancer and geronimo! within a couple of months, even my farrier (professional, cautious, pessimistic) had to admit that there was a remarkable improvement in his feet. He also needs smaller amounts of expensive feed and is full of energy mostly on hay, un-molassed chaff and a little sugarbeet. See also my review of Hoof and Skin Health Winter Balancer which I swap to every winter.as he gets no grass for 6 months.

  7. GreyConnie (verified owner)

    A great product that complements the Winter Balancer. Leo’s hooves have never been as good since we started these balancers.

  8. GreyConnie (verified owner)

    A great product that complements the Winter Balancer. Wouldn’t use anything else as produces great hooves!

  9. Kelly Renaut (verified owner)

    I’ve been feeding this balancer for a couple of years now to my barefoot cob. His feet are in great condition and his coat is really healthy and shiny. I’d highly recommend Forage Plus products

  10. Susan Dixon (verified owner)

    I used to use Progressive Earth supplements but moved over to Forage Plus once I learnt they had a lower iron count. Seems to be doing my boy good but too early to really tell.

  11. Kelly Elliott (verified owner)

    I put my eventer on this when she goes barefoot over winter and I have never had any hoof problems.

  12. JTippers (verified owner)

    Love this product! It keeps my barefoot ID in top form over the summer months when out at grass- he also has the winter version from Oct onwards to make sure he gets plenty of Vit E

  13. kasey matthews (verified owner)

    Brilliant product from Forage Plus, always quality & actually make a visible difference, better feet & beautiful shiny coats. Big differences since using this the last year.

  14. Kitty (verified owner)

    I started feeding forageplus balancers shortly after my horse needed very important liver support. He’s responded really well to them and is feeling in excellent condition! I can’t imagine changing back now and love that there is no-nonsense ingredients either.

  15. Tricia Callow (verified owner)

    Before finding this product, my horse was on two different supplements and still had poor hooves.
    Now, one product – Hoof & Skin Health Balancer Summer or Winter – and his hooves and everything else are healthy and I’m happy!

  16. maisey phillips (verified owner)

    Since starting my pony on this product, I have noticed a significant difference. He is looking so much healthier, his coat is a different colour and is so much shinier! His feet are completely different! So much stronger and the difference in the growth and development of them is huge! It’s been amazing to see the difference in him. These are only a few changes I have listed, there are many others! I highly recommend this product!
