Nutrition Information

Many people choose to keep their horses barefoot rather than shod. To be able to do this effectively and allow the horse to be ridden over a variety of surfaces, the diet must provide the horse with all the nutrients that they need to keep hooves hard and healthy. If you choose not to feed synthetically made vitamins and minerals this can be more difficult, but Feedmark have a 100% natural supplement to help keep your barefoot horse sound.

Barefoot Formula is a mixture of Seaweed, Rosehips, Brewer’s yeast, Micronised linseed and Magnesium oxide, which contain essential vitamins, minerals, oils and amino acids necessary for healthy hoof horn growth.
