Under “ideal” conditions, a horse sources all of its mineral
requirements from its daily diet, selectively grazing on a wide variety
of plants over an extensive area.
In reality, however, this is rarely the case. The levels of
macro-minerals (calcium, phosphorus and magnesium) and trace elements
(copper, manganese, zinc, iron, selenium, cobalt etc) in pastures and
manufactured feeds can vary greatly depending on soil type, agricultural
practice and processing. The other important variable is that horses’
mineral requirements change depending on age, exercise levels,
reproductive status, health and stress. Mineral imbalances and
deficiency can cause a wide variety of problems, from nutritional bone
disease to poor coat condition, lowered immunity and reduced athletic
and reproductive performance.
Well-balanced supplementation (such as Horsepower Mineral Supplement)
is essential for the health and well-being of horses in modern feeding
