Internal Systems & Digestion Supplements for Horses

From the steppe...


Horses are herd animals by nature that once lived on the Eurasian Steppe. They are creatures of habit must always have the opportunity to flee. Horses are also herbivores that are accustomed to movement through grazing. Originally, they would graze practically day and night, spending as much as 16 hours a day nibbling on grasses and herbs that were low in nutrients. This gave them a constant intake of high-fibre food in small amounts. Their grass was high in fibre but low in sugar and protein. The range of herbs and grasses available to them was so diverse that they had access to many different vitamins and minerals. The natural diet of horses was therefore high in fibre and contained plenty of vitamins and minerals, but little sugar and protein and even less starch.

The domestication of the horse upturned this kind of life completely. Horses were put in front of ploughs and wagons or were ridden. Horses now had hard work to do, and grass alone no longer provided enough energy. This deficit was made up for with cereals. Gradually horse evolved from wild animals into loyal companions. More and more, they were used for leisure and sport, developing into today's modern horse. 

Horses are now used in a wide variety of equestrian disciplines: jumping, dressage, eventing, racing, vaulting, endurance. There are also significant differences amongst breeds.
