Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insulin Resistance I have an insulin resistant horse who foundered 6 years ago. Has been on Empower Topline Balance from that point on, without any recurring issues. Looks GREAT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product! This was recommended by my vet as a way to help keep my two senior horses a bit more filled out across and behind their withers. One of my two loves this stuff, the other is less interested but I use it to mix their other supplements and augment their sr feed program. My vet uses it for her own horses, so I consider that a good recommendation --

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using Empower on my OTTB ...for the last 5 months. He's just recently off the track. He has gained muscle weight and his coat is super shiny. I believe that the Empower has made the positive difference!

Is this product sufficient or is also feeding Equishine veterinary supplement okay?

Asked by: Moga
Hello, Thank you for the question. If you are referring to their vitamin and mineral supplement, we would not recommend adding that to the Empower Topline Balance - it would be unnecessary and could create excesses of some nutrients.

I’m feeding my 4 quarter horses Purina stategay 1 scoop twice a day, I want some to help support their top line, could I feed topline balance added to their feed, (supplement) if so how much? 

Asked by: Becca8311
Hello, Thanks for the question. Yes, you can definitely go this route. The Empower Topline Balance product can be added to any ration to help improve topline. General feeding recommendation for a 1,000 lb mature horse is 1.5-2 lbs per day.

Is this good to feed youngsters? I have a yearling Colt

Asked by: Tandera

I have a mare that came back positive on her allergy test for corn, molasses and carrots. I am sure there are no carrots in this but what about corn and molasses?

Asked by: Sharondaniels4
Hello, Thank you for the question. The only corn-free product that Nutrena offers, and Tractor Supply Co carries, is SafeChoice Special Care. However, none of our feeds are free of molasses. You would need to determine with your veterinarian if it is a true allergy, or an intolerance where low amounts might be acceptable to the horse, in order to feed one of our products.

Is this fed as a full feed for just to be fed with another grain?

Asked by: Beth206
Hello, Thanks for the question. Empower Topline Balance can be used as a stand-alone product, along with hay/forage of course, or it can be used in conjunction with other grains. Please ensure you are following the feeding directions for your horse, based on body weight and activity level.

Can you mix safe choice original with this empower? Easy keeper who doesn’t get much grain. Full access to hay and grass pasture. Looking to get more vitamins and minerals in daily diet. 

Asked by: Jlp92
Hello, Thanks for the question. That is a very common scenario. While you can mix the two products together, we'd actually recommend, for easy keepers who get just 1-2 lbs per day of a traditional grain like SafeChoice Original, to move them completely to the Empower Topline Balance product. That will provide them all the nutrients they need (protein, vitamins, and minerals) in a lower calorie option, as it is designed to be fed at that 1-2 lb per day rate for a mature horse.

I presently feed Nutrena Safe Choice Special Care to my 13 yr old mare who has battled laminits & founder. She is a VERY easy keeper and gets very little feed. Currently one cup am and pm. I constantly worry about her being too fat. Would this be better?

Asked by: Threehorses
Hello, Thanks for the question. At that very low feeding rate, she is not getting the needed nutrients from the SafeChoice Special Care, since the intended feeding rate for that product is 3-5 lbs per day or more depending on body weight and activity level. The Empower Topline Balance is specifically designed to be fed at a very low rate, just 1 to 2 lbs per day, while still providing the correct levels of protein, vitamins, and minerals. We would recommend you switch to the Empower Topline Balance. Thanks!

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.
