Pro Balance + A high quality forage balancer.
(450g Sample packs now available to purchase. See below for more information)
Progressive Earth Pro Balance + is specifically formulated to balance the grass, hay or haylage in your horses diet.
Plus added biotin and methionine for additional hoof support and VistaCell to support healthy gut microflora and maintain correct pH balance.
Pro Balance + is ideal for those horse owners who want to balance their horses diet but are unable to formulate a diet based on a bespoke forage analysis. Feeding separate minerals can sometimes be time-consuming, complicated and expensive. Pro Balance + can save horse owners time and money!
If ‘exceptional’ mineral concerns have been identified in a particular horse’s diet by forage analysis then Pro Balance + can also be used as a building block feed balancer for which to formulate a bespoke feeding plan.
Pro Balance + 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 + 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 stuffs.
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 + 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.

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 and heat etc.
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 horses feed is a reasonable amount to cover maintenance requirements.
Working horses will require additional electrolytes. Dissolving the salt in water & spraying on to hay, can be an alternative option for picky eaters.
1 to 1.5 x 50ml (50g to 75g) scoops daily of Pro Balance + for an average 500 kg horse.
1/2 to 1 x 50ml (25g to 50g) scoop daily of Pro Balance + for an average 300 kg pony.
Pro Balance + is a powdered supplement which we recommend is mixed with a damp base feed, such as beet pulp fast fibre or dampened chop.
When feeding for the first time, it is recommended to introduce gradually over a period of 5-7 days.
