FeedXL: Who Should Use FeedXL?: Pleasure Riders

Calm, well behaved horses that cost less to feed ... sound good? FeedXL can help you to achieve just that!

Pleasure Riders

Keep horses calm and well behaved

Overfeeding, feeding 'hot' feeds and deficiencies of important nutrients like vitamin B1 and magnesium can affect your horse's behavior . FeedXL will make sure you don't overfeed, help you select 'cool' feeds and avoid nutrient deficiencies to keep your horse calm, well behaved and a pleasure to handle and ride.

Avoid weight issues

Obesity is an ever increasing problem in our equine friends that can lead to serious health issues including laminitis, heat stress and joint disease. FeedXL allows you to limit your horse's intake of calories to maintain a healthy bodyweight without limiting intake of essential nutrients like vitamins and minerals. You will have the peace of mind you need to keep your horse trim and healthy for years to come. For more info read our Newsletter on Feeding the Easy Keeper.

Keep costs down by feeding only what you need

Because you don't know exactly what your horses need in their diet the natural tendency is to overfeed 'just in case'. Overfeeding, particularly of supplements, provides your horse with no benefit (in fact it can be harmful) and costs you an unnecessary fortune. FeedXL allows you to see exactly which nutrients your horse needs and when the diet you are feeding meets those needs, so you can avoid waste and stop throwing away money (that could be better spent on rugs, boots, hats, saddles ... you get what we mean!).

Keep hooves strong and healthy

Good basic nutrition is often all a horse needs to grow strong healthy hooves. So, before you reach for an expensive biotin hoof supplement, use FeedXL to balance your horse's diet and make sure requirements for quality protein and trace minerals, including copper and zinc, are met. You may find balancing the diet is all your horse needs for healthy hooves. And if you do need to use a hoof supplement, feeding it with a balanced diet will make it all the more effective. For more info read our Newsletter Biotin - should you supplement?.

Support healthy joints

While joint supplements can help keep joints healthy, using supplements without first balancing your horse's diet is a little like building a house without first putting it on stable foundations. Just as the house will eventually come tumbling down, the joint supplements won't work for long if they are fed with an unbalanced diet. Using FeedXL to balance your horse's diet will keep your horse's joints naturally healthy and give joint supplements a solid foundation to work from.

Manage laminitis and insulin resistance

Horses with laminitis and tying up need very specific diets to prevent a reoccurrence of these crippling diseases (read our Newsletter about Feeding a Horse with Laminitis). By simply ticking a box when you fill in your horse's details to indicate your horse is prone to these diseases, FeedXL will help you select appropriate feeds and supplements to manage these conditions. FeedXL can help you manage several diseases including colic, tying up (both PSSM and RER forms), grain intolerance, Cushing's disease, HYPP and developmental orthopedic diseases.

Keep your horse active and healthy well into old age

We understand only too well how your old horses are part of the family. We also know that when they are well fed and cared for they can remain active and healthy well into old age. FeedXL helps you to make sure your precious oldies are getting everything they need to remain active and healthy members of your family. For more info, read our Newsletter on Feeding the Oldies.

Which FeedXL Plan is Right for You?

If your horse is only lightly worked and spends a lot of time at home on good quality pasture FeedXL Lite will take care of their nutrition nicely. And if your needs change you are welcome to upgrade to FeedXL Pro at any time during your FeedXL membership at a pro rata cost, so you only pay for what you use.
