Fibre sources used in our feeds can change, depending on the time of year and seasonal conditions. Therefore our feeds may also change in appearance. This is the nature of fibre crops and does not affect the overall nutritional value of the feed.

Chestnut Active Response is ideal for horses and ponies requiring maximum nutritional benefits as they are in hard/performance work regime. This is also suitable or for those horses at stud requiring increased levels of nutritional support.

Active Response contains high levels of quality protein crucial for working horses to generate and maintain powerful muscle development and condition.  High protein levels are critical for breeding too, in order to ensure that the body is receiving the correct levels of amino acids for growth. In addition, linseed is added to deliver a balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, supported by antioxidants, which benefit coat and skin health and promotes stamina.  

The inclusion of our fibre-blend, including alfalfa, promotes hindgut health and helps to ensure the overall wellbeing of the entire equine gastrointestinal tract.

Top Tip!
Active Response contains a careful blend of vitamins and minerals, alongside which the carefully selected energy sources provide a balanced high fibre and high energy diet, that helps to promote maximum chewing times.
