A Guide through the Dodson & Horrell Horse Balancer Range
The Balancer Range from Dodson & Horrell is made up of six feed balancers. It has been developed as the company continues to bring ground-breaking products to their customers.
Balancers are concentrated pellets providing essential nutrients and high-quality protein that meet the horse’s requirements in a low-calorie format. Feeding a consistent amount of balancer allows you to increase or decrease the calories and fibre that you add, without having to alter the feed completely, depending on the horse’s condition and workload.
Dodson & Horrell’s new product line offers customers a range of six different balancers to cater for every horse’s need. Each balancer contains a unique combination of optimal vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as well as supplements for hoof health, coat condition, digestive function, and mobility, depending on the balancer chosen.
“Giving our customers the best quality feed is a top priority for us,” says Catherine Rudenko, Head of Nutrition at Dodson & Horrell. “It’s important that we continue to innovate and offer our customers new ways of feeding their horses – and we believe that The Balancer Range does just that.”
