Try Something New during Lockdown 3.0 - A "No Added Magnesium" Diet for much better behaviour.

Posted by


You have probably tried all sorts of feeds and calmers and training tricks 
to improve your horse's behaviour and way of going. 

If you are happy with were you are - stick with it. If you think there must be another way - try the EquiFeast Whole Diet Approach.

We see little point in adding calmers (or sedatives or even brain enhancing nutrients) to a diet that has brain impairing nutrients built in. The biggest of these is artificial magnesium sources and following some way behind are various herbal and amino acid products that dampen down the brain's function.

At EquiFeast we won't sell you something that could have you riding around on an intentionally brain impaired horse. Our customers tell us that by supporting great brain function the majority of horses realise the world isn't full of scary beasties and that enables them to concentrate on their rider and their work. As a bonus more relaxed brains also mean more relaxed muscles and horses that move better too.

Whether you are a happy hacker or an Olympic aspirant you will benefit from a horse with great brain function.

Our FREE diet reviews help identify those feeds and supplements that may be a problem and make a recommendation from our specially designed CORE&MORE products (often plus other chaffs and feeds that you may  be using already). Nearly always this plan involves our Chelated Calcium (Cool, Calm & Collected technology) that requires a one month loading period.

So a seven week (or longer) lockdown is the perfect time to make a change and still have time for EquiFeast's "Fine Tuning" process if needed.

Be all ready when the competition season starts again in the Spring.

Send us an email or Facebook message with details of your horse including the issues you would like to improve and the current diet (brands and rough quantities). Or you could ring us or message us through this website. Here are the contact details:

European Shipments

EquiFeast EU shipmentsUpdate 11 Jan 2021We suspended all EquiFeast shipments to the EU over Christmas and New Year to see how the couriers would cope. That seems to have been a good decision as DPD also suspended its service for a while. It looks like everything has settled and so we will be re-starting shipments from Wednesday 13th Jan 2021.

Is your balancer making your horse Batty?

Feed balancers are a great way to get the vitamins, minerals and amino acids that may be deficient in grass and hay into your horse. Being fed at fairly low rates (typically 250-500g a day) they don’t provide any significant calories making them ideal for good doers and even for poor doers they allow you much better control of [...]

The horse digestive system

So we recommend them to thousands of people every year. Dengie products make the ideal complement to our CORE [...]
