Under “ideal” conditions, a horse sources all of its mineral requirements from its daily diet, selectively grazing on a wide variety of plants over an extensive area.
In reality, however, this is rarely the case. The levels of macro-minerals (calcium, phosphorus and magnesium) and trace elements (copper, manganese, zinc, iron, selenium, cobalt etc) in pastures and manufactured feeds can vary greatly depending on soil type, agricultural practice and processing. The other important variable is that horses’ mineral requirements change depending on age, exercise levels, reproductive status, health and stress. Mineral imbalances and deficiency can cause a wide variety of problems, from nutritional bone disease to poor coat condition, lowered immunity and reduced athletic and reproductive performance.
Well-balanced supplementation (such as Horsepower Mineral Supplement) is essential for the health and well-being of horses in modern feeding systems.
