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 Sensitive Performance is a balanced feed that has been specifically formulated for those horses and ponies that require a low starch and sugar diet, whilst maintaining suitable levels of energy and condition in order to effectively perform their work.

It contains a carefully selected blend of fibres, including ‘superfibres’, that are highly digestible and yield large amounts of slow release energy. These fibres also contain high levels of pectin (a soluble fibre), which, in acidic conditions (like those in the stomach) alters its structure to create an additional layer of protection in the stomach, helping to safe-guard against acid attack which can lead to painful and damaging cases of EGUS (Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome).

Low starch and sugar levels also make Sensitive Performance a perfect choice for horses with compromised gastro-intestinal tract health, like gastric ulcers.

Top Tip!
Sensitive Performance also contains a careful blend of vitamins and minerals so it can be fed in order to deliver a low starch, low sugar, fibre-based diet, with maximum chewing times, promoting saliva production and maintaining optimum gut health.
