Running Cool Sport is designed for horses in medium to heavy work. It is perfect for horses in all sport disciplines

I currently use the Running Cool Sport. My horses and some of my client's horses have been on this feed for about three months now. All horses have had an increase in their condition and a great shine to their coats. The energy levels of the horses are good whilst not becoming to fizzy and difficult to manage. The horses are concentrated and focused during daily work. This makes for a happy rider.

Running Cool Sport

Running Cool Sport is a fully extruded, energy dense complete food specifically formulated for performance ponies and horses. It is a perfect feed for daily-trained horses in light to heavy work and competition horses in all spot disciplines including equestrian, racing, campdrafting, endurance, polo, reining and cutting.

Running Cool Sport has well balanced amounts of high quality protein, amino acids and energy perfectly suited to the work load placed on sport horses. It contains enriched levels of micronutrients including anti-oxidant vitamins, minerals and chelated trace minerals to support the nutritional needs of your performance pony or horse.

Running Cool Sport is processed by extrusion to maximise digestibility and minimize digestive dysfunction. The Extrusion process adds a large range of benefits compared to pelleted and standard feeds. Listed below are just a few advantages in feeding extruded products

  • 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.
