  • Horses and ponies on a weight loss program 
  • Horses and ponies prone to metabolic conditions such as: 
    1. Obesity 
    2. Laminitis 
    3. Insulin Resistance 
    4. Equine Cushing's Syndrome 
    5. Equine Metabolic Syndrome

Feeding Advice

  1. Introduce PonyPlus into your horse's diet gradually over a 10-14 day period. 
  2. Pony Plus needs to be fed in conjunction with  a minimum of 1 kg/100 kg BW of hay, chaff and/or pasture (Pony Plus is well suited to being fed with low to average quality hay for horses or ponies on a weight loss diet).
  3. Suggested feeding rates should be used as a guide only.
  4. Feed by weight and not by volume.
  5. Provide access to a salt lick and clean fresh water at all times.
  6. For more nutritional advice contact Omega Feeds.
Why should horses with metabolic conditions be fed diets low in starch and sugar?
Diet plays a crucial role in the management of metabolic conditions, so proper nutrition is vital when managing horses with conditions such as laminitis, cushing’s disease, insulin resistance and obesity. Feeds that contain readily available sugar and starch (sweet feed and grain) should be avoided, as excessive starch and sugar intake can trigger or  worsen metabolic conditions.
