Horse Supplements for Winter Survival

For tip top survival this winter, consider horse supplements from Equiform. 

Winter can be a difficult time of year with cold and challenging conditions for both you and your performance horse. With freezing conditions and lack of fresh grass, it’s important to consider nutrition, health and wellbeing.

Top Tips for Winter Survival

  • Ensure you horse is wearing the correct breathable rugs that are in excellent condition. Check there are no holes, tears or areas which rub your horse causing pain and discomfort
  • Ensure access to ample forage (grass, hay or haylage) throughout the colder months
  • Access to clean and fresh water at all times – check regularly throughout the day when there are freezing conditions as water can become frozen quickly in winter
  • Wear high vis if hacking out on the roads
  • Choose good quality, dust free bedding for the stable and keep in clean by mucking out regularly
  • Keep an eye out for any signs of mud fever
  • Have sand available for any ice pathways which may build up
  • Consider giving your horse a vitamin or mineral supplement to support their health and wellbeing
