How to body condition score your horse

Monitoring body condition is important for good health

Most horses, including performance and growing horses, should have a body condition score of 5-6. Broodmares should be a 5-7 to insure optimal reproductive efficiency and should not be allowed to lose condition during breeding season. Horses with a score over 7 are considered obese and are at a greater risk for developing metabolic disorders such as insulin resistance.

My horses look amazing!

I switched to the enrich plus about a year ago now after my horses were both diagnosted with pssm1. They are both easy keepers. And this has really transformed them. I highly recommend for people wanting to make sure their horses are getting whats needed. Amazing what only a lb per day can do!

Great results

Recently switched one of my senior horses to this feed with great success. He was declining a bit in weight and the ability to eat and utilize his feed and this product resolved those problems. He looks great and loves this feed.
