What are the Benefits of Feeding OneCup for Horses? 

  • Provides 26 essential daily vitamins and minerals, ideal for "good doers" who require less traditional feed to maintain condition.
  • Complements all chaffs, forages and basic feeds.
  • Consistency in every cup.
  • Manufactured to Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS) standards as palatable, easy-to-feed 3mm pellets.

When Should I feed OneCup to My Horse?

OneCup should be fed to all horses and ponies that require little in the way of traditional feeding stuffs to maintain condition (good doers), but will benefit from the addition of essential daily vitamins and minerals. A 100gm measure of OneCup provides approximately ten times the level of vitamins and trace elements as most general equine feeds, such as pony nuts.

What is the Difference Between OneCup for Horses and Equilibra Feed Balancer?

OneCup for Horses is a convenient, no mess and no wastage way of providing essential vitamins and minerals to your horse or pony on a daily basis.

While Equilibra also does this, it has been formulated with digestive/overall health as the key benefit and, as such, provides the following additional benefits to the horse or pony:

  • Yeast cultures to aid fibre digestion and create a beneficial environment for friendly bacteria in the hind gut.
  • Natural antioxidants to maintain high levels in the blood and support long term health.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids to support the natural anti-inflammatory action of the body and also maintaining the metabolism’s response to sugar in the diet.
  • Prebiotics as nourishment for beneficial bacteria and aid the natural expulsion of antagonists from the digestive tract.
  • Microscopic toxin binders to also aid the natural expulsion of antagonists from the body.
  • Oat bran soluble fibres (beta-glucans) to help maintain an active immune system and support the natural self defence process to deal with antagonists that reach the blood system.
  • The Oatinol™ Delivery System. A blend of galactolipid natural emsulifiers, natural tocotrienol antioxidants, oat derived beta glucans and phospholipids, required to maintain gut cell integrity, maintain the lining of the gut, support the immune system and aid the absorption of nutricines, vitamins and trace elements.

Equilibra Feed Balancer remains the key product in the GWF Nutrition Feeding Programme to establish digestive health and provide top performance from all horses or ponies.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Who Should OneCup be Fed to? And What Make it Different to Equilibra?

OneCup is a simple balancer designed to be fed at low feed rates (100grams) whilst Equilibra is fed at 500grams.

The additional feed rate from Equilibra has a nutritional benefit to the horse, whilst OneCup is much more concentrated and is a palatable way of providing the essential vitamins and minerals without overfeeding the horse.

OneCup is designed to be fed to more conditioned horses, breeds that put on weight easily (good doers) and under light workloads, for example Cobs (such as Welsh, heavy breed cobs), equines in low work and ponies (Exmoor, Dartmoor, New Forest, Dales, Fell, Highland and Shetland ponies).

OneCup does not contain any hemp meal, so if you are looking to avoid hemp completely it can be a good and cost effective alternative for providing sufficient minerals and vitamins to your horse.

A 100gm measure of OneCup provides approximately 10 times the level of vitamins & trace elements as most general equine feeds such as pony nuts.

Can OneCup be Fed With a Balancer?

Absolutely not. OneCup is specifically designed to be fed as the sole vitamin and mineral supplement and certainly cannot be fed alongside Equilibra or any other balancer. This could be dangerous and could lead to toxic levels of certain minerals, for example copper and selenium.

Can OneCup be Fed With Your Other Supplements?  

Yes of course, it is commonly used with some of our other supplements, in particular Immune Aid, X-Lam Aid & Joint Aid Plus.

Is OneCup GM Free?

No, OneCup contains soya meal which is a GM feed. This is a cost effective mineral supplement with a high ash (vitamin and mineral content) - as a result it needs to be fed with a highly palatable feed to ensure uptake. In this case we use hipro soya meal which has excellent palatability.  

Where Can I Buy OneCup?

Our feeds and supplements are available at most good pet shops and country stores around the UK. To find a local stockist in your area search using our Stockist Locator. If your local feed store is not currently stocking OneCup please let us know and we may be able to help. Alternatively our products are also available from a variety of online retailers.

Does OneCup Contain a High Level of Starch?

The daily feeding rate of 100gm means that the daily starch content being given in OneCup is low.

Does OneCup Contain Wheat? 

Yes OneCup incudes a wheat by-product (also known as wheat middlings). This is the by-product left after flour extraction where a lot of the starch has been extracted, meaning starch levels are low. It also means OneCup is very cost-effective.  

Can You Feed Too Much OneCup?

Yes, OneCup must be fed at the stated feed rate (100gms) as it is highly concentrated and contains certain minerals that can be toxic in larger quantities (in particular selenium, copper and zinc).

Can OneCup be Given to a Mare in Foal?

Yes OneCup is suitable for a mare in foal, although it must not be fed alongside another balancer or vitamin and mineral supplement.  

Is OneCup Suitable for a Horse With Laminitis?

OneCup maybe a better option for providing the essential vitamins and minerals than Equilibra for a laminitic horse, as the total starch fed is less thanks to the lower feeding rate of just 100gm per day.

We would also recommend X-Lam Aid, which we designed to deal with acid issues in the gut and ensure good blood flow to the hooves. The starch content in X-Lam Aid comes from black oats and oat bran, meaning it provides slow release energy when compared to other sources such as barley, maize or wheat. The black oats used are also fundamental to the Oatinol® Delivery System™, which allows for the improved absorption of important ingredients.

If energy is an issue, we would also recommend feeding Fibregest alongside OneCup and X-Lam Aid.
