Nutrition Information

This supplement is designed to soothe the digestive system and help to maintain healthy amounts of acid within the stomach, which in turn helps to maintain normal behaviour. The horse secretes hydrochloric acid (HCl) almost continuously as it is needed to breakdown the continual flow of food that horses ingest with their natural trickle feeding behaviour. When horses eat they produce saliva which contains bicarbonate that buffers the HCl production, keeping the pH of the stomach within correct levels. Trickle feeding helps to maintain healthy pH levels within the stomach due to a regular addition of saliva to the stomach. When horses become stressed (due to competition, travel, extended times in the stable) or are fed a high cereal grain diet, the amount of HCl produced increases and the amount of saliva produced decreases. In these cases, it is particularly important to optimise stomach health.

Feeding Guide


Weight of Horse/Pony Approx. Height Amount per feed
Up to 400kg/880lb Under 14hh  ½ scoop
Over 400kg/880lb Over 14hh 1 scoop


1 level (50ml) scoop of Settelex weighs approximately 30g/1.0oz.

For best results, initially feed twice per day, and up to a maximum of three times per day.Introduce gradually and feed with each meal up to three times per day. Settelex should be added to the feed immediately prior to feeding - if not, effectiveness may be lost.

Avoid feeding large concentrate meals (pellets, mixes and grains). Instead feed little and often throughout the day, especially concentrate feeds. Always feed at least 1.5% of your horse's body weight per day as fibrous forage (for a 500kg horse feed at least 7.5kg of fibre per day).

Feed supplements should be fed according to body weight; height has been given as a guide. Introduce to the horses diet gradually, splitting between feeds (when applicable).

Settelex is a complementary feeding stuff for equine animals. Feedmark uses nothing in the formulation of this product that contravenes competition rules.
