It is very important that the transition to a different feed is made gradually.
If your horse used to get a lot of grains, then gradually reduce the amount.
Imagine that you, as a human, eat a few Mars bars every day or put a lot of sugar in your coffee or
tea. Then you have to get used to the reduced amount of sugar you get.
It is the same with horses.
Horses that get a lot of grains, those grains convert to sugars, have to get used to going from burning sugar to burning fat.
It is important that your horse has something to eat throughout the day and something in his
stomach because a horse produces gastric acid throughout the day.
So give plenty of roughage!
After switching feeds you will be able to notice the first changes after about 4 weeks. Horses may
become more energetic, but also calmer, their coat may become shinier, itching may disappear, they are feeling well, too fat horses may loose weight and too thin horses may gain weight.
Please refer to our reset protocol
and follow the steps on how to gradually get your horse used to
