Nutritional videos - Getting started.

 

Before deciding how to feed it is important to firstly consider how the digestive system works in order to utilise the feed that you are putting in your horses mouth.

Here is a great video that explains how the stomach, small intestines and hind-gut work together to breakdown what your horse eats and the challenges it faces with current nutrition strategies and diets.

Understanding what set recipe & least cost mixing is when deciding what horse feed to buy is VERY important. Here is a video to show HOW you can determine if this is the case.

If you are wanting to know WHY having a quality protein in your horses diet is so important. Dr Nerida Richard explains:

- what protein is and what does it mean to have a high and low quality protein in your horse's diet.

- through a visual example how essential and non-essential amino acids are used by the horse to build muscle protein.

- what the difference is between a high and low quality protein when looking at the most limiting essential amino acids Lysine and Methionine.

Feeding your horse to control behaviour is a common question we get here at Pryde's. The simple answer? Don't feed too much! It is so important to match your horses calorie intake with their calorie requirements. 1:28 Don't feed anything that will cause excess fermentation of starch/sugars in the hindgut.

Managing horses nutrition through changing seasons is a concept that is important for all horses! What is the trick? It's being able to change how much you are feeding to control body fatness and behaviour as pasture quality changes WITHOUT causing mineral deficiencies in the diet.

How to feed and build topline in your horse requires three things: 1. Adequate work - creating an environment where your horse is being worked in an appropriate manner where it will encourage topline and muscle development. 2. Adequate calorie intake - with energy need to develop topline, having the right calorie intake is essential to encourage this.
