Essential Balancer

Saracen
Cost-effective pelleted feed balancer for horses and ponies

A cost-effective pelleted feed balancer for horses and ponies, to be fed alongside compound feeds being fed below the manufacturer's recommended levels, or forage only diets.

Essential Balancer is low in sugar, starch and calories, so is suitable for horses and ponies that are good doers and in particular native breeds of ponies. Dense in vitamins, minerals and quality protein sources, Essential Balancer helps to maintain muscle tone and topline as well as supporting optimum health and vitality. A source of Omega 3 fatty acids helps to condition and shine the coat, creating a picture of health inside and out.

The yeast culture helps to support a healthy digestive tract and optimize digestion and energy extraction from the fibre sources in the ration. This helps to reduce the reliance on the need to feed additional compound mixes or cubes.

You can request advice and a free no obligation "Feed Check" with the Saracen Feed Advice Form, or use our interactive Ration Consultant, to find out if the diet you are feeding your horse is meeting his nutrient requirements.

The consultant will ask you questions on your horse and their routine and will help you to understand if/where their diet is lacking in essential vitamins and minerals.

Partnership with Kentucky Equine Research (KER)

Saracen Horse Feeds Ltd. has always been dedicated to producing nutritionally sound, innovative formulas and providing customers with accessible personal service. These commitments led Saracen to Kentucky Equine Research (KER), founded by Dr. Joe Pagan Ph.D. in 1988.

Saracen is the exclusive Kentucky Equine Research (KER) Team Member in the UK.

KER is the most prolific independent equine research center in the world, entirely committed to the advancement of breeding and athletic performance through nutrition. The aim at KER is to enhance the understanding of equine nutrition and exercise physiology, and apply this knowledge to produce healthier, more athletic horses. From its headquarters in Central Kentucky, KER conducts extensive research, and each research trial is designed to improve the health and wellbeing of horses by targeting specific problems, and finding nutritional solutions.

The collaboration has given Saracen the chance to consistently provide nutritional solutions with unique, progressive feeds that can make a real difference, along with the science to support them. RE-LEVE®, Level-Grow™ and Super Fibre Pencils are good examples of concept feeds that have been produced as joint projects.
