Pro Mineral 

A fundamental equine mineral balancer, helping to replenish some of the most commonly deficient minerals in forage.

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

Pro Mineral 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 Mineral is produced using quality feed assured ingredients under strictly controlled production conditions and conforms to the requirements of EU and UK legislation governing the manufacture of animal feeding stuffs.

Pro Mineral is an ideal choice for supplementing your horse’s diet during the summer months when your horse is predominately out at grass.

If your horse is on a restricted grass or a hay/haylage-only diet, then we recommend feeding additional vitamin E. This is because research has shown that vitamin E is often deficient in the diets of horses that do not have access to continual grazing on fresh green grass, as well as in horses grazing on winter pasture. Vitamin E is considered an essential nutrient because it cannot be synthesized by the horse.
Alternatively, feed our Pro Balance + supplement which has vitamin E added to the formulation.

Pro Mineral is also useful for those horse owners who want to balance their horse’s 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 Mineral 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 Mineral can also be used as a building block feed balancer for which to formulate a bespoke feeding plan.

We recommend additional micronised 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 the grass is restricted. Essential Fatty Acids cannot be manufactured within the body & must be present in the diet.

Pro Mineral is recommended for:

  • Balancing the commonly deficient minerals in grazing.
  • Strong hooves.
  • Healthy frogs.
  • Strong ligaments and tendons.
  • Muscle & nerve health.
  • Shiny healthy coat and skin.
  • Vibrant coat colour.
  • Better attitude to work.
  • Healthy Lungs & breathing.
  • Healthy strong immune system

Usage Level: one 25ml scoop supplies approximately 32 grams of product.
Suggested intake: 500kg Horse 1 – 1 & 1/2scoops per day. 300kg Ponies 1/2 to 1 scoop per day.

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

600 mg Zinc
6 g Magnesium

9 g Magnesium
1.12 mg Selenium
3.75 g Phosphorus
3.9g Calcium

Please note our guidance on the use of Salt:

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 on onto hay, can be an alternative option for picky eaters.

    My horse has wonderful hooves thanks to these minerals. It would be good if the plastic measuring spoons were an optional extra as I now have loads! But it’s pretty cool getting a bar of chocolate

    An excellent product, and great value. It’s especially good for supplementing horses on restricted diets for weight loss or laminitis – something I find is often overlooked by vets. Coats start to shine and hooves get good, strong growth as they’re still getting a well balanced intake of minerals whilst rationed. Highly recommended.

    Amazing product! My OTTB was advised he was PTS by my vet after significant long term hoof problems including repeated multiple cracks and flair followed by a trigger for concussive laminitis. However great farrier care and using the Pro Mineral has made an amazing difference to the quality of his hooves in just the first tub! Would highly recommend if you think you’ve tried everything else and can’t seem to make any difference to the hoof quality. Also palatable as my fussy tb ate it no problem

    This is excellent value over summer when my horse just needs the minerals in his grass balancing out and doesn’t need the extras in a full balancer. It is easily disguised in some soaked grass nuts with some salt and then I switch to pro balance over winter.
