Pegasus Equibalance

Pegasus Equibalance® is an oat-free concentrated pellet, which is excellent for those trainers who like to add their own grains to the diet. Equibalance is great for balancing a grain diet. Its concentrated levels of vitamins and minerals mean that it has a low feeding rate, whilst still providing horses with their nutritional needs. This allows the trainer to add additional grain to meet the horse’s energy requirements, whilst having the piece of mind that the vitamin and mineral requirements are being met from the pellet.
