Forageplus Pea Protein Powder is sourced entirely from dried peas and is the perfect alternative for horses owners wishing to supplement extra protein to their horse 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 enables you to target extra protein supplementation without including extra calories.  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.

Provides 75 grams per 100 grams of products.

Which horses will benefit from the addition of Pea Protein?

  • Horses are on a reduced hay ration due to needing to lose weight.
  • Laminitis prone horses needing a very low sugar and starch protein source due to high sugar sensitivity.
  • Older horses are struggling to maintain the topline.
  • 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 with stronger soles and white line connection.
  • Horses in heavy work.
  • Young horses on a forage-based diet which needs protein boosting.
  • Pregnant or lactating mares on a forage-based diet that needs protein boosting.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
