This superior, high specification, ultra-low iron, equine balancer has been formulated for use with performance horses in moderate to heavy work on at least 8 hours of green and growing grass. 

This summer balancer is a powder, which is very low in sugar and starch, contains no fillers and only the highest purity minerals and vitamins. The Forageplus Performance Summer Equine Balancer makes the ideal accompaniment to straight feeds such as beet pulp, oats, alfalfa, copra and wheat bran although compound mixes can also be used.

If your horse has access to less than 8 hours of grazing, or hay/haylage makes up 50% or more of the diet, feed our Performance Winter Balancer version as it contains high levels of vitamin E to maintain antioxidant processes to help neutralise against free radicals in the body. Both Performance versions of our balancers have been formulated using data obtained from scientific analysis of our many samples of forage and contain only the commonly deficient minerals, vitamins and amino acids found to be needed to help balance the diet of a performance horse. All the ingredients are designed to aid optimum health and performance.

This balancer will support muscle strength and development, enhance stamina and athleticism and give your horse the extra nutrients needed to maintain a high level of performance in all activities. The minerals used are of high quality to ensure against contamination with heavy metals and enable good absorption rates.

“Amazing! My horse has just got back from a training ride on the beach, stamina better, speed better, can’t believe that minerals balanced to the ratios in forage are making such a difference! I’ll never go back to a broad spectrum mineral feed again.” Chris Leadbetter, Lancashire.

Forageplus Summer Performance Equine Balancer matches nutrients to the forage consumed by a horse. Supplying correct levels of nutrients, as matched to ratios determined by the National Research Council, is an important consideration for horses in moderate to very hard work so that there is support and maintenance of:

  • healthy skin
  • healthy structurally sound and robust hooves with a strong laminae connection
  • healthy frogs
  • vibrant, shiny coat colour free from 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

Horses that are subjected to high levels of stress through frequent competition and or travelling may also benefit from Gut Plus for maintenance of gut health in the absence of equine ulcers.  To help support the maintenance of muscles and a healthy immune system we recommend APF Pro.

    Really like this balancer, my young warmblood is very sensitive to feeds. This doesn’t fizz him up but he isn’t sluggish either. I know with forage Plus I’m not putting and nasties into him. He’s also barefoot and this is a great addition to his diet

    The Performance Balance has transformed our Warmbood Dressage gelding who struggled at competitions and training. Now he is able to keep his strength and energy to excel to the best of his ability.

    My Eventing mare competes a 2* level on this and she has never felt and looked so good. I would never switch to another balancer now, I so glad I moved away from the typical big brands’ balancers – thank you Forage Plus!
