Running Cool Leisure is an ideal feed for leisure ponies and horses that have low to medium energy requirements

Running Cool Leisure

Running Cool Leisure is a fully extruded, complete feed specially formulated for leisure ponies and horses in light to medium work. It is an ideal feed for active leisure ponies and horses that have low to medium energy requirements and do not require high specification concentrate feeds.

Running Cool Leisure provides balanced levels of energy, quality protein, amino acids, digestible fibre, vitamins, minerals and chelated trace minerals to support the nutritional needs of your pony or horse.

  • The extrusion process changes the nutritional characteristics making proteins, carbohydrates and liquids more available for the horse's metabolism
  • The nutrients become more readily adsorbed in the small intestine, reducing overload into the hindgut.
  • Extruded nuggets promote chewing and saliva production, which is essential for buffering stomach acids.
  • Extruded feeds are low in dust and fines, making it an excellent feed for horses with respiratory problems

Feeding Directions

  • Daily feeding rates are provided as a guide only. Variation will occur depending on body condition of the horse, climate, quality of pasture and/or hay, chaff available and individual variation.
  • This is a concentrated feed that must be fed in conjunction with hay and or pasture so that roughage comprises no less than 50% of the diet by weight.
  • Do not feed more than 0.5 kg per 100 kg of bodyweight in any one feed. Higher amounts should be split between 2 or more feeds per day.
  • Introduce over a 1 to 2 week period into your horses diet
  • Ensure that clean, fresh water is available at all times. Access to a salt lick is also recommended.
