In caring for your horse it's very important that you have the right balance and nutrition in order to keep your horse healthy and allow it to perform to the best of its ability. Probably one of the most things you have options for are grains, there are a lot of different grains and each of them serves a different purpose. The best idea is to consult with your vet about which grain is best for your horse and what quantity is needed. When considering grains you need to consider the level of activity that your horse has and the amount of protein and fat in the grain, and you need to be able to match the two, the level of activity and the level of protein and fat to your horses needs. The other thing that's important is making sure your horse gets a good quality hay, forage is the most important part of your horses diet along with water. And it's important that your horse has a hay that has a good level of nutrition and that he gets plenty of it.
