PRO BALANCE BASIC. A fundamental equine forage balancer helping to replenish some of the most commonly deficient minerals, vitamins & amino acids in forage.



Pro Balance Basic

A fundamental equine forage balancer helping to replenish some of the most commonly deficient minerals, vitamins & amino acids in forage.

Pro Balance Basic is ideal for those horse owners who are unable to formulate a diet based on a bespoke forage analysis.

Pro Balance Basic is similar to Pro Balance Plus but excludes the Biotin & Vistacell. PRO BALANCE PLUS

Our high specification formulas are carefully balanced using optimum ratios defined by the National Research Council. Targeting only the deficient minerals in forage.

Pro Balance Basic is manufactured in a UFAS (Universal Feed Assurance Scheme), BETA NOPS (Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances), FEMAS (Feed Materials Assurance Scheme), ISO 22000 ( Food Safety Management System) certified state-of-the-art premix manufacturing facility.  Pro Balance Basic is produced using the highest quality feed assured ingredients under strictly controlled production conditions and conform to the requirements of EU and UK legislation governing the manufacture of animal feeding stuff.

Pro Balance Basic does not contain any wheat feed or linseed.

We recommend the addition of micronized linseed meal throughout the winter months, or if a horse is fed predominantly hay/haylage. This is for the essential fatty acids that a horse may be short of when grass is restricted. Essential Fatty Acids cannot be manufactured within the body and must be present in the diet.

  • Supports Hoof, coat, and skin health
  • Strong ligaments and tendons

Suggested intake: 500kg Horse 2-3 scoops per day. 300kg Ponies 1-2 scoops per day.

1 x 20ml scoop provides approximately 100mg of copper.

Do not exceed the above dose recommendations and adjust if other trace element sources are used.

We always advise with any new feed/supplement/dietary change that it should be made gradually due to the horse’s sensitive digestive system. As advised by the national research council. If necessary start with just a pinch and work up to the full recommended amount.

Pro Balance Basic is a powdered supplement that we recommend is mixed with a soaked base feed such as a suitable soaked mash, soaked hay cobs, soaked grass nuts, soaked beet pulp etc.

Please note our guidance on the use of Salt:

We do not add salt directly to our formulations. Chloride in salt is naturally quite abrasive. So adding salt can lead to rapid degradation of vitamins used in our mixes if exposed to light, moisture, heat, etc. The addition of salt could considerably reduce the shelf life of our products. Our products are packed and sealed in carefully controlled packing facilities at our mixing house. We cannot guarantee how products are stored once opened by our customers. We have a fast turnover of products and all our mixes benefit from long shelf lives. Customers can feel confident that their products will remain fresh and free from degradation. Our Balancers and Premixes are formulated with the specialist guidance of World-leading nutritionists at the Professional Mixing House Company we use.

We recommend all horses should have free access to salt. However, a salt lick alone cannot be relied upon to cover maintenance & sweat requirements. Many horses do not choose to use the lick enough. The amount of salt needed is variable depending on how much the horse sweats. For example, a 500 kg Horse needs 10g of sodium per day (25g of salt) for maintenance needs, this is without exercise or sweating on hot days.
1 – 2 tablespoons of salt per day, added to the horse’s feed is a reasonable amount to cover maintenance requirements. Working horses will require additional electrolytes. Dissolving the salt in water & spraying it onto the hay, can be an alternative option for picky eaters.
