Muscle Maintenance for Horses is a comprehensive high specification muscle support supplement for all horses and ponies, designed to promote muscle replenishment and minimise muscle fatigue and tissue breakdown.

When should I feed Muscle Maintenance for Horses?


It is a fact that every muscle in your horse’s body undergoes constant tissue depletion and replenishment as a natural process.  Providing all the essential components for maintaining high rates of muscle building and recovery whilst supporting minimal muscle loss are key to having a strong athletic horse.

What are the key benefits of feeding Muscle Maintenance?

  • Recommended for performance and elderly horses where the demands of work and the ageing process increase the muscles’ requirements for essential dietary components.

  • Contains essential:

    • Amino acids for building lean muscle. 

    • Antioxidants for mopping up free radicals that can damage muscle tissue.

    • Vitamins for maintaining a healthy blood supply.

    • Connective components for optimising muscular structure.

    • Digestible glucose for minimising muscle fatigue.

    • Omega 3 fatty acids for moderating the breakdown of muscle tissue.

  • Provides a unique combination of 12 active nutraceuticals.

  • Contains the Oatinol™ Delivery System to maintain high rates of nutrient absorption.

  • Wheat gluten free.

​Contains 30 Active Nutraceuticals

Nutraceuticals are nutritional substances that provide additional health benefits.  Through the addition of the following nutraceuticals, Muscle Maintenance for Horses provides a complementary support for all horses and ponies.

 KB  - For more information see Knowledge Base article: 'The Role of Nutricines in Health...'

 KB  - For more information see Knowledge Base article: 'Glucosamine & Chondroitin...'

1-12 - Amino Acids (x12)


Essential for the creation and growth of muscles, connective tissue and skin and help maintain muscle tone, tissue strength, digestion as well as the healing and repair process within the body.

13-16 - Antioxidants (x4)


Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Selenium and Curcumin work together to 'mop up' free radicals.

17 - Chondroitin

Chondroitin is essential for the resilience and natural regeneration of cartilage.  It maintains normal enzymatic activity and water holding capacity to provide healthy resistance to compression.

18 - Collagen Matrix

Collagen possesses great tensile strength and provides the framework that gives tissues their firmness and resilience.  It is essential for connecting and supporting the bones, tendons, muscles and cartilage.

19 - Digestible Oat Starch

Helps to maintain glycogen storage in muscle tissue to reduce muscle fatigue.

20 - Folic Acid

Helps the body produce and maintain new cells.

21 - Hemp Oil Derived Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Hemp Oil is probably the best source of Omega 3 fatty acids found in the plant world.  This unique combination enables the animal to produce other essential Omega 3 fats called EPA & DHA, both of which are normally only found in fish oils and are crucial for maintaining the natural anti-inflammatory action of the body.

22 - Vitamin A

Vitamin A is essential for healthy eyesight, a strong bone structure, good fertility and an active immune system.  A daily intake of Vitamin A is crucial for life.  Horses and ponies cannot exist without it.

23 - Vitamin B12

B vitamins are essential for maintaining normal, healthy blood flow to all areas of the body, including the mucosal lining of the gut wall and the extremities of the hooves. Blood flow is essential for the supply of active ingredients to maintain normal gut barrier defences and hoof integrity.

24 - Vitamin C

Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen in the body that forms the matrix of connective tissues in mammals.  It directly affects the level of tissue growth and development and the maintenance of the body's immune system.

25 - Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential for bone development by improving the uptake of calcium and phosphorus from feeding stuffs.  Vitamin D is also important for the immune system, fertility and the release of insulin in the presence of glucose.

26 - Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a biological antioxidant, vitamin E protects the membranes of every cell wall in the body and thus is essential for the health of reproductive, muscular, circulatory, nervous systems and immune functions in the metabolism.

​The Unique Oatinol Delivery System

 KB  - For more information see Knowledge Base article: 'The Oatinol Delivery System'


Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies four active nutraceuticals to:


  • Maintain gut cell integrity.

  • Maintain the lining of the gut.

  • Support the immune system.

  • Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.


27 - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that create the perfect medium for the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.

28 - Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are a natural form of vitamin E.  They are 40-60 times more readily available than other forms of vitamin E and help to maintain the integrity of the cells forming the lining of the gut to aid absorption.

29 - Oat Derived Beta Glucans

Beta Glucans have prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.

30 - Phospholipids

Phospholipids have emulsifying properties and have been shown to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.
