Dengie is launching a Fuelled By Fibre training bursary that will see three Horse&Rider readers become Dengie ambassadors for the 2017 season. The lucky winners will see for themselves the benefits of an alfalfa-based diet for a competition horse. Our Dengie ambassadors will share their experiences via regular updates on a blog featured on the Horse&Rider website. Plus, we’ll catch up with the winners at the end of the competition season to find out exactly how they got on. To help make sure both you and your horse perform at your best, you’ll also receive lessons from two top trainers – dressage rider Hannah Esberger and eventer Lucy Jackson.
Why feed fibre?
Cereals contain high levels of starch, which is broken down into sugar that can cause peaks and troughs in your horse’s energy levels, resulting in unpredictable behaviour. However, a feed combining alfalfa and oil can provide the same amount of energy as a cereal-based feed, but contains lower levels of sugar and starch. Alfalfa is also a great source of quality protein that’s essential for muscle development and repair, and is naturally abundant in vitamins and minerals.
Did you know? The alfalfa in Dengie’s products is grown in the UK.
Your fibre feed plan…
Dengie nutritionists will devise a personalised feeding plan using feeds from their Alfa-A range…
- Alfa-A Oil – approved to display the BETA Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) mark, this high-calorie ration is comparable in energy value to a competition mix, but with 10 times less starch
- Alfa-A Molasses Free – ideal for horses who are prone to laminitis but need energy for fuelling work or promoting condition, it’s comparable to a medium energy mix
- Alfa-A Original – the original alfalfa feed is comparable to a low-energy mix
