Progressive Earth's latest Brand New Product now available! A Highly Bioavailable Organic Source Of Magnesium: Magnesium Glycinate

PRO BALANCE + Equine feed balancer for targeting deficiencies in forage.



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.

  • Balance your horses grass and hay and haylage
  • Strong hooves
  • Healthy frogs
  • Strong ligaments and tendons
  • Muscle & nerve health
  • Shiny healthy coat and skin
  • Vibrant coat colour
  • Better attitude to work
  • A Healthy metabolic system
  • Healthy Lungs & breathing
  • Good doers on restricted diets
  • Healthy strong immune system
  • Healthy Gut Microflora
  • Supports correct pH Balance

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.

Suggested intake:

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.

How long will a bag last?

    I’m really pleased with the balancer and although I’ve only been using it for about 3 months, my ponies hooves are strong and healthy, their eyes bright and their coats glossy, even their winter woolies. One of my mares has sweetitch poor thing, so I’ll be looking for help from progressive earth products early next year. Very impressed with the fast service too.

    I’m very happy with the product that has arrived and the service received however at the moment am struggling with getting my horse to eat his feed with the supplement in. He is not a fussy eater at all however appears that the product contains an ingredient which presents an unappealing smell and taste so need to find something to feed alongside to hide it.

    • Paul Hollinrake

      We always recommend introducing a new supplement very gradually over 1 – 2 weeks. It is also important to feed in a suitable ‘soaked’ base feed (not chop).

    very good quality product. however amount to ship is excessive as other forms of shipping to guernsey i know are significantly cheaper

      Unfortunately, there is little we can do about the cost of shipping. We make absolutely no money on shipping costs and subsidise the postage charges.

    I’ve used PE supplements for 2 years and wouldn’t use anything else. The Pro Balance is a complete powder and I can therefore feed my horses a diet that works for them perfectly. I previously used lysine and biotin and their top line improved, they’re now barefoot and looking fantastic.

    Product is great for minerals, unfortunately quite unpalatable but I gather this is a common problem

    • Paul Hollinrake

      I am sorry you have had problems getting your horse to eat the Pro Balance +. This is not something that is normally an issue and most horses eat it fine. But it is important with any new feed to introduced it gradually and feed it in a suitable base feed. We always advise feeding any powdered balancer in a soaked based feed. Chop is not a suitable carrier for a powdered supplement and if problems arise it is generally because it is either introduced all at once or fed in just a small handful of chop. Powdered balancers don’t blend very well with a chop, but hay cobs, grass nuts etc or a suitable soaked mash is ideal.
      Horses are very suspicious of new smells and flavours so to avoid disappointment we advise introduce gradually over a period of 1-2 weeks.

    I wouldn’t be without this product. I buy a year’s supply at a time, as this makes it more affordable. My pony is barefoot and this really helps to keep him sound on rough surfaces. Unfortunately last year I forgot to reorder, and in the time that my pony was without his Pro Balance he became quite sensitive on stony ground but this disappeared as soon as he was back on his Pro Balance. He is muzzled as he is a really good doer and it’s great to know that he is getting everything he needs despite being on a restricted diet. I feed it with micronized linseed and salt and he looks amazing.

    Brilliant company who offer great feeding advice.
    My elderly mare has been on pro earth pro balance plus for nearly 2 years now and her feet have improved dramatically along with her overall health and appearance. It’s the perfect forage balancer for her as I cannot get my hay tested due to our farmer having multiple hay fields and I can only store a dozen bales at a time. I know she is getting what she needs without the added nasties.
    Delivery is fast with the added bonus of a little chocolate goody!

    I’ve been giving my horses this balancer for the last 4 years. I started using it after one of my horses a ten year old Arab had laminitis and I needed to give him an affordable balancer that contain all the minerals and vitamins he needed in an easily absorbed form without needless calories. Both my horses look well and since I have been giving them this balancer my old boy a 25 year old grey Arab no longer suffers with mud fever or rain scald which I think is the balancer giving his immune system boost.

    I did my research and this came up as the best basic all rounder supplement. I’m not sure what my mare is like without it, but with it she has great bare feet and her coat is glossy. The team have been helpful at suggesting what to mix it with. I add one scoop of balancer to 200g soaked alfalfa pellets and half a scoop of plain chop. I also add a ration of table salt as per the guide. I add a small amount of linseed in the winter and she is thriving.

      Hi Helen. I am sorry that you find the postage charges expensive. We subsidise all the postage as the actual cost to is considerably more than what we charge our customers. For example Courier charges are over £12 and we charge our customers £7.99.

    Excellent product which the horses seem to enjoy. I found Progressive Earth after researching equine nutrition as none of the products in my local feed store seemed to help my geldings behavioural issues. Thanks for taking the time to read all my notes and propose a solution. Your products have made a huge difference

    We have been feeding this product for several years now and would definitely not look at anything else. Apart from all our horses looking great on it, it’s also so convenient to feed. Our ponies who are prone to being overweight just need a small amount of chaff for hard feed as the Pro Balance gives them everything they need. Excellent product, would highly recommend!

    This was the first winter my little herd was on pro balance+ I always used comercial products but I was not satisfied with them too much of things they do not need and too little of needed minerals and vitamins. After reading a lot about nutricion I came to the conclusion progressive earth was my choice. And my horses have never looked better. The youngsters remained well muscled all through the end of winter. My old ladies with tooth problems were also benefiting from their supplements they kept on weight better then previous years. The hoofs were in best condition ever even though we are temperairly living on a farm without shelter they had seen lots of mud, but we had no thrush. The most funny thing was seeing cars slowing down along the pasture to look at my shiny horses. On sunny winterdays they were shining like diamonds on the hil. I give a big thumbs up for this balancer it is affordable if you keep multiple horses and you get what they really need.

    Well what can I say this is my favourite foundation supplement! My horses thrive off of this supplement. Grow fabulous feet, shiney coat and show all round general health. Very palatable too (to them not me!) Needless bulky feeds not required. Wouldn’t be without this one. Been feeding it for years to many various horses who all do very well health wise.
