What is Pea Protein for Horses?

Forageplus organic pea protein for horses is suitable for anyone looking for a quality powder to improve daily protein intake. The amino acid profile of pea protein is excellent – it is rich in ‘branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine) and is richer in arginine than any other commercially available protein.

Our stocks are 100% human-grade and organic.

Forageplus Pea Protein Powder is sourced entirely from dried peas and is the perfect alternative for horse owners wishing to supplement extra protein to their horses and avoid other protein sources due to food allergy or intolerance.

Why Feed Horses Pea Protein?

Some forages are low in available protein due to a complicated interaction between nitrogen and sulphur levels in the soil. Many horses benefit from an increase in protein. Extra protein can help with lethargy problems and poor hoof and skin quality.

Our pea protein for horses enables you to target extra protein supplementation without including extra digestible energy.

Your horse can therefore continue to enjoy ad-lib hay without the added calorie concerns that feeding more concentrates would entail.

Pea protein for horses is great for anyone who wants to boost their horse’s protein intake with an easy-to-digest high-quality protein, rich in essential amino acids. This is a vegetable-sourced protein (which doesn’t include soya) that is milk and egg-free.

  • Naturally contains 85.9% protein.
  • No added sugar

Which horses will benefit from the addition of Pea Protein?

  • Good doer horses on a reduced hay ration due to controlling digestible energy intake.
  • Laminitis-prone horses that require very low sugar and starch protein source due to high sugar sensitivity.
  • Older horses are struggling to maintain top-line.
  • Horses that have access to low protein levels in the forage they are eating, can be determined from a nutritional and mineral analysis of hay or haylage.
  • Horses on a pure winter grass diet when protein levels can be low and contribute to hoof and skin issues.
  • Horses with poor hoof wall connection and or cracks. Barefoot horses in particular will benefit from stronger soles and white line connection.
  • Horses in heavy work.
  • Young horses on a forage-based diet that need higher protein level.
  • Pregnant or lactating mares on a forage-based diet that needs protein boosting.

    Great source of low energy protein for my good doers.

  2. [email protected] (verified owner)

    Seems to fill him up so he’s less inclined to guzzle. Definitely muscled up this year

  3. KarenB (verified owner)

    Great way to get low calorie protein in to my lami horse. Really good with building muscle and it helps that the horses love it!

  4. Denise Edwards (verified owner)

    I have been using pea protein for two weeks as well as other Forageplus supplements and have already noticed a shine on my horse’s coat and mane.

  5. Elizabeth Cousins (verified owner)

    My farrier has been asking what I’ve changed in my horse’s diet, as his normally poor hooves are in the best condition ever this winter.
    Last year I fed him Forage Plus Winter hoof balancer and linseed. This winter I’m still feeding those 2, but I have also added the pea protein, so that’s the only new addition.
    He had surgery in the summer and dropped a lot of weight and muscle off, and never picked up before winter. I think the Pea protein is providing the essential amino acids he needs to build up some muscle.

  6. Scarlett Roberts (verified owner)

    Great stuff! My mare absolutely loves this, she is quite fussy but hoovers this up! I’ve put her on it as she has very thin soles which we are trying to fix at the moment, too early to tell if it’s helped this but it’s definitely a hit at feed time, and she looks fabulous!

  7. Monique Rushton (verified owner)

    Fantastic essential product which has been invaluable for my ems pony and navicular horse. Both on restrictive diets this has given them all there essential requirements and keeps them in super condition without the fat.

  8. allybarber (verified owner)

    Have been feeding the pea protein for 6 months now and I can honestly say, this is the best my mare has looked, feeding it alongside the winter hoof and skin balancer and micronised linseed. It has been a game changer for my mare, her coat and hooves are fantastic, and she no longer looks bloated. Highly recommend forage plus.

  9. Claire Green (verified owner)

    I have been using this Pea protein for an elderly mare whose protein levels in her currant batch off hay were a little low for her needs. She is fussy in what she eats but mixed in with her usual feed she ate it all up no problem. Would highly recommend.

  10. Claudia Faraday-Stupples (verified owner)

    I wanted to wait to review this as I’m a skeptic these days, but incredibly impressed after 8 weeks. I use this, Winter balancer, Jiaogulan and AAKG for a horse with wobblers and I have seen a big improvement in keeping the muscle on him. I do add other bits, but I am incredibly grateful to Forage Plus and the advice they gave me as I feel we are actually making progress keeping him happy and sound! Thank you 😊

  11. allybarber (verified owner)

    Have seen such an overall
    Improvement in my mare, through speaking to forage plus and them advising me on what best to feed her. Feeding this alongside the hoof and skin winter balancer and micronised linseed in a small amount of bucket feed. Excellent products.

  12. KarenB (verified owner)

    I’ve been using Pea protein for a while on my laminitic horse to maintain condition. I think it really helps with building and maintaining muscle. Really recommend this for horses where you don’t want to feed calories!

  13. EmmaMal (verified owner)

    Have started feeding this to my retired 19yr old, Irish Sports Horse Mare, she’d lost condition and winters are hard for her, so wanted to give her a boost! Been feeding for 3 weeks and noticing a difference, will be keeping her on it for this winter for sure!

  14. Jennie Stickland (verified owner)

    This has made a massive difference alongside feeding your balancer. My elderly mare has a top line and her feet have improved massively. Thank you.

  15. Lucy Austen (verified owner)

    Pea protein is great seen a difference in my horses’ coat condition 👍

  16. Rebecca (verified owner)

    Great has made such a difference to my pony with her having more energy and muscle on her shoulders and topline

  17. Leonora (verified owner)

    I’m amazed at the difference the addition of these products have made to my pony’s well-being. I was already using the Forage Plus Winter Hoof and Skin Health Balancer, mixed with soaked/rinsed Speedibeet to supplement his forage-based diet. My pony has been on a strict diet and has lost a lot of weight, which is great, but I noticed that he would run out of steam quite quickly during exercise. I contacted Forage Plus for advice and they said this is not uncommon in equines on strict dietary control and recommended the addition of Pea Protein, Flaked Oats and Essential Amino Acids. I noticed an improvement within a couple of days and I’m delighted.

  18. Joanne Case (verified owner)

    I started feeding pea protein after my horse had laminitis and had dropped all his condition. I have been feeding now for about 4 months and can really see the difference in him. Even on a restricted diet he is finally starting to build condition again. Highly recommend this product especially for those who cannot risk feeding other supplements when you can’t guarantee what their mixed with ! Fab product.

  19. Kelly Elliott

    Pea protein was so good for my former dressage pony. At 15 and still in pretty heavy work he needed extra support from added protein to maintain his muscles and repair sore areas. This worked a treat and I will be using it again.

    Have noticed a difference in muscle mass in just 4 weeks! Don’t want to give away the secret but it definitely works a treat on my boy! Service and delivery brilliant – thank you very much ! Didn’t realise you had to order scoop separately but really liked the fact that they included it with a note so I know for next time 😀 very happy customer

  22. Nikkiandcassie30 (verified owner)

    New to feeding this as I feed it to balance forage plus Timothy hay, but always fab products and service!

  23. Molly (verified owner)

    I recommended pea protein to a friend who recently purchased a TB who was lacking in muscle and energy. After only 3 weeks she cannot believe the difference in him. He is more forward going and his coat is improving.

  24. welliebootwoman (verified owner)

    I honestly can’t believe the difference pea protein has made for Jake. He’s always struggled to maintain any top line and his feet still weren’t great even though having balancer etc. His whole frame is beginning to change and I can see the training and passive physio actually taking affect now. His behaviour ha also changed and he is so much calmer – I noticed the difference when I ran out and didn’t order for a week. It also seems very palatable.

  25. Petra Langen-Pieters (verified owner)

    I got my horse 3 months ago in quite poor condition and no muscles. Feeding pea protein has really helped him put on condition and he is already looking so much better and he has adapted well to being barefoot.

  26. Molly (verified owner)

    Last year my pony had a problem with his feet. They had seriously deteriorated partly due to the wet conditions all winter. The sides of his hoof looked like shredded wheat and he was regularly getting abscesses. He has been on the pea protein for 18 months and his feet look amazing. Nor has he had any abscesses since.
