Feeding Instructions:
Begin feeding at the low end of the feeding directions listed, increasing gradually until desired body condition is maintained.

Divide the recommended feed amount into two feedings per day, feeding at the same time each day to maintain proper digestion.

Feed good quality grass, mixed hay or pasture at a rate of 1.5 to 1.75 lb. per 100 lb. of bodyweight per day.

To avoid excess vitamin and mineral intake, do not exceed the feeding rates indicated. If feeding above the specified levels is required to maintain body condition, add Empower Boost High Fat Rice Bran Supplement to the diet--or change to SafeChoice Advanced Equine Formula or the appropriate Life Design formula, which are designed for higher feeding rates.

Fresh clean water should be available at all times. Horses that have been exercised should be cooled out and re-hydrated properly before being fed and before having access to unlimited water.

Provide free choice salt at all times.

Maintenance: 0.1 - 0.2 lb. per 100 lb. of bodyweight

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Easy Keeper! I have been using this feed for about 2 years for my Morgan/QH gelding. In his younger years, he was a hard keeper so I used Empower Boost. Based upon my success with his overall condition and health with that product, I made the switch to Empower Balance when it became apparent to my vet and I that body changes in his teen years have made him an pretty easy keeper. Empower Balance keeps his coat nice and his topline looking amazing!

Empower grass balance have any omega 3s in it. How about flaxseed? I have a horse with skin allergies (I think) and am looking for these to see if it will relieve her skin itchiness.

Asked by: Ann87
Hello, Yes the Empower Balance has guaranteed levels of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as flaxseed. You can view the full nutrient profile here: We would also encourage you to have your horse evaluated by your veterinarian, as there are numerous things besides nutrition that can cause skin irritations.

Our vet suggested feeding this as a supplement to my two senior horses who are having problems maintaining a nice topline. They are currently on Nutrena Safechoice Senior. Can I use this in combination with their current feed as a supplement (~1 lb/ day)?

Asked by: Busterjackie
Hello, Thanks for the question! Yes, you can definitely add the Empower Topline Balance as a supplement on top of the Nutrena SafeChoice Senior horse feed.

what makes the pellets red?

Asked by: Brittneyy
Hello, Thanks for the question. The reddish color is due to a high mineral content and low grain content - traditional feeds made from higher grain content will have a brown color that you see with those products. This high mineral / low grain ratio is what allows it to deliver concentrated nutrients in a small feeding amount, without the calories of a traditional feed - that is where your 1-2 lbs per horse per day feeding rate comes from. Hope this helps!

I have four horses, three of them are cushenoids and the ages are 7,13,16,and20. I currently have them on hoof secret supplement and welsolve w/c. They have turn out24/7, when sugar/starch is low. Should I stop hoof supplement and welsolve? Ty jackie

Asked by: Jackiecvt
Hello, Thanks for the question! If you are planning to start feeding the Empower Topline Balance product, then yes, you should discontinue the supplement and the Wellsolve product. The Empower Topline Balance has a very low feeding rate at just 1 to 2 lbs per horse per day, as well as a very low starch and sugar level, while still providing the protein, vitamins, and minerals your horses need to stay healthy - so you'll find it an ideal solution for your herd.

I have a PSSM1 horse, no tying up issues and she's 14. Free hay 24/7 and pasture in the summer. She has always been fed a sweet feed with no issues until this winter, she has gained a lot of weight. Which feed is low starch/low sugar and best for PSSM1?

Asked by: fancydeck
Hello, Thank you for the question. If your mare will maintain the desired weight/body condition on 1.5-2 lbs of feed per day, then your ideal product to use is the Nutrena Empower Topline Balance feed. This is a ration balancer that provides all the needed protein, vitamins, and minerals required for overall health, with the lowest starch and sugar levels of any Nutrena product. Combined with the low feeding rate, the amount of total intake of starch and sugar is as low as you can get with a Nutrena product. Should she need more calories in her diet to maintain weight (which it does not sound like is the case), then a product such as SafeChoice Special Care should be considered, as it keeps a lowered starch and sugar level, but is designed for a slightly higher feeding rate, thus providing more caloric intake. Thank you!
