Tino's Equine Supplements
When I bought Tino, he had not been shown a lot, and it seemed as though his weight would drop every time he went down the road. I set out to find him supplements that would help his body score. After much trial and error, I found what works best for him, keeps him in good condition, and allows him to spare some poundage loss when traveling.
The training barn provides a grass/alfalfa mix that he is fed twice daily, along with grass turnouts of 2 to 3 hours a day. On top of that, he is fed his supplemental feed at noon. I provide him with the noon times supplements, which consist of the following:
3 pounds of Purina® Ultium® Competition Horse Formula
THE SCIENCE BEHIND ULTIUM® COMPETITION HORSE FORMULA
Patented, proprietary technology is the culmination of decades of Purina® equine research. Ultium® Competition Horse Formula has been successfully field-tested across a wide spectrum of competitive disciplines.
Unique “pellets and extruded Amplify® nuggets” aim to prevent sorting, reduce waste and transport easily. Highly palatable and digestible, it’s “nutrient dense,” and “highly efficient” so you can “feed less.”
Sustained Energy System® features a unique blend of three fuel sources:
Soluble carbohydrates (starch and sugar)

Please note I am not an Equine Nutritionist or Veterinarian. This supplement program works for Tino. You should always advise your Vet or Equine Nutritionist on what is best for your own horse.
I was so pleased that Purina recognized Tino as August's Horse of the Month. I love that no matter where horse shows take you, Purina Equine is always easy to find at most local feed stores.
I love the Redmond Rock equine minerals. They are amazing!
