    • The above recommended feeding rates are based on a 500kg horse and are guidelines only. Daily feedamounts will vary depending on pasture availability and body condition. Horses are very much individuals with different metabolic efficiencies, some require a little more, others a little less, for the same level of activity.

    • It is advisable to split the above daily quantities into at least two feeds, preferable 3-4.

    • Total feed intake should range between 2%-3% of the horses bodyweight per day.

    • Ensure adequate fibre intakes by providing 1%-1.5% per day of the horse's body weight as chaff, hay, Dunstan Betabeet/Sugarbeet or pasture (on a DryMatter basis).

    • As intensity of training increases a step up to Dunstan Sporthorse is recommended.

    • General Notes:
      Always ensure the horse has access to clean drinkingwater. High Copper levels in Dunstan Competition Mix make it unsuitable for feeding to sheep.
