Gut Balancers for Horses :: Summer Nutrition
This month we focus on summer nutrition and gut balancers for horses. With all the highlight being on feeding fibre, we thought to include a feature on supplements to encourage maximum nutritional intake where needed.
The products we've selected below all focus on maximising digestive efficiency, so our horses are able to get the most out of their daily intake of food; whether it be from hay, grass or hard feed.
