A horse grazing the grass (forage feeding)

This guide has been split into various size ranges, each with 3 corresponding work categories; Light Work, Medium Work and Hard Work.  

Simply select the size and workload of your horse or pony and read across for a guide to the feeding levels of each product we recommend. However, it’s important to understand that the quality of grazing, hay and haylage, which makes up the bulk of the diet, may vary. As such, personal judgement should always be used when feeding.

What Else Should I Feed My Horse or Pony?

In addition to the GWF Nutrition products outlined below, we would always recommend that your horse or pony receives an adequate supply of forages in the form of:

  • Ad-lib Grazing

  • Ad-lib Hay

  • Ad-lib Haylage
