Re: [RC] Feeding during conditioning - Truman Prevatt


In the early days (and that was the early to mid 90's for me) - we didn't feed beet pulp and we did just find. Some even supplemented with "shudder" cracked corn when we needed more calories. If your horse is holding weight, healthy and happy going down the trail just enjoy yourself.

There are a ton of great feeds out there, I like Farr XTN myself for a hard working horse but there are others. Find one that works and go ride.

When you all were doing LSD conditioning during first or second season did you change your horses diet much? Once we hit rides over 5 miles I started feeding more grain, (omolene 100 with a little strategy) is this bad? They are both in good shape not too thin or fat, arabian mare (9yo) and arabian gelding (5yo). During this 90+ degree season in the SE should I be feeding beet pulp instead of grain? I'm only riding every other day. They are pastured 24x7 and have grass/weedy pastures with hay in the run in manger at all times.

All this talk about beet pulp and feed has me wondering if I'm doing whats best for my 'kids'
