Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put weight back on my horses in the dead of winter We moved our horses from a barn where they lived in paddocks to a 24/7 pasture in the mountains. When winter came around they rapidly lost weight and looked emaciated. I was frantic, we decided to move them back into a barn and I fed them 3lbs of Empower Boost a day and within 4 weeks they really started filling out. My thoroughbred has actually put on more weight than my Arab. They still have more weight to gain but I am very impressed how quickly they were able to put on weight with this product even though we are in the middle of winter! They no longer look alarming and I can finally breathe. I’ll be feeding this to them for the rest of their lives because it has everything they need and it’s not a sweet feed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super food!! I have a 21 yr old arab mare that used to be an easy keeper. About a year and a half ago she started looking ribby and thinner than I liked I had/have her on Nutrena Senior, oats and alfalfa pellets so I started upping her feed ration. One day while getting feed I was looking for something with more fat without the extra protein because my horses are basically pets. I found Nutrena Empower Boost and thought I'd try it, even though it is a bit pricey. I am sooo glad I bit the bullet and bought the bag!! After about 2 weeks, I slowly mixed it in with the mixture I was already feeding her, I could see a difference!! She was filling back out the way I liked. After achieving the "look" I like I started to back off the feed a little at a time so she wouldn't get too fat. I am glad I found this product and even though it's more expensive it balances out because I'm not feeding her as much so the feed lasts longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improve topline This is a great product to use if you have a horse that's a hard keeper. I own an appendix quarter horse mare who has a hard time keeping weight on. I top dress her rations with Boost and she improved in a couple of weeks. The extra fat helped her fill in across her withers,spine and hips. She looks and acts much better. Not always so hungry. This process improved her attitude!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic addition to my program!! I have fed Safechoice original for almost 15 yrs and couldn’t be happier. I added Empower Boost 2 yrs ago when a horse I got in from a trainer tied up terribly. Since then I have added it to all of my horses and subsequently have had a couple of barns switch their programs because of the condition of my horses. I run a business “Next Level Equine Therapy”, and clients see the results for themselves. Thank you. Sincerely, Sandy Whitt

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a huge difference I am thrilled with this supplement! I have an 29 year old horse that has cushings, among other age related issues, and wouldn't put weight on no matter how much I fed her. This stuff got her back her to her normal weight, and she hasn't looked this good in years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Suppliment for a young horse I bought the Nutrena Empower Boost Rice Bran for my new horse. Rescued a 6 month old from a kill pen and with the help of the rice bran mixed with grain the horse has put on 100lbs in 30 days. The horse is finally filling out! Use of the Tractor Supply website was easy and delivery was within a week. Very happy with Tractor supply as a whole and the Nutrena product.

I have a 150# mini mare that is 17 years old... She has dropped weight this winter... Had her teeth floated last Nov... How much Nutrena Empower Boost should I give her at a feeding?...

Asked by: minimule2010
Hello, Thanks for the question! For a 150# mini that needs to gain weight, we'd recommend feeding at the "light to moderate" or "moderate to heavy" work levels, so that she is getting more calories than just maintenance level calories. For her weight, that would equate to between 0.1 and 0.3 lbs per day of the Empower Boost. To measure that out, it takes 4 cups to make 1 pound of Empower Boost, so you'd want to add about 1 cup of Empower Boost per day. Make sure to introduce it gradually if you are not already feeding it, as the high fat levels can loosen things up a bit if introduced too quickly! If you have any further questions, please let us know. Thank you!

just bought a very underweight horse. should i feed boost and topline balance together or do you reccomend another combination? he is a 15 yr. old quarter horse.

Asked by: tmck
Hello, Thank you for the question! Since Empower Boost is a supplement and is not designed to provide a full nutritional profile, feeding it along with something else is necessary for overall health. The Empower Topline Balance product is a great option for just that! Also, another option would be to feed SafeChoice Senior as the main diet, and you could supplement with Empower Boost if you desired. With any of these options, be sure to introduce them slowly over 5-10 days, as the change in diet and the increase in fat content could cause some issues if added in too quickly. Thank you!

My 8 y/o mare has chronic loose at times runny stool. My vet & farrier suggested worming, more oats, grass hay, vit E, selenium, physillum, slippery elm bark: tried all, has helped some. Now vet says add bran. Do you think this product will help?.

Asked by: Cindyb
Hello, Thanks for the question. Your vet was likely referring to wheat bran, which is a high fiber source, and not rice bran, which is a high fat source. In either case, feeding wheat bran as a standalone ingredient in the diet over a long term period can cause other issues due to the imbalanced calcium:phosphorus ratio - and bran is usually fed for its laxative effect, not for it's ability to stop loose stools. We would recommend a few things: 1. Ensure your pasture does not contain any trees or plants that are mildly toxic to horses - this is an often overlooked source of trouble. Contacting your local university extension office is a good place to start, as they will be familiar with local plants. 2. Try a significant/long term dose of a direct-fed microbial, or probiotic. A horse with chronic diarrhea has a gut microbial population that is completely out of line, so we want massive dose of beneficial microflora to see if we can get the gut repopulated with beneficial microflora. 3. Use a commercial digestive enzyme product. There are a number on the market. Goal is to optimize enzymatic digestion and slow down fermentation. Fermentation produces fatty acids and may lower pH, even normal fermentation. You want to do all you can to get gut pH normal. Your vet might want to measure fecal pH in the process to see what the current status is for the horse. 4. You can reduce demand on the colon by reducing long stem forage and feed a complete feed such as SafeChoice Senior. Feed good quality grass hay if the horse can handle hay properly. 5. Use a feed such as SafeChoice Senior Horse Feed that contains probiotics, prebiotics and organic trace minerals. Goal is to reduce stress on the entire gut. Smaller, more frequent meals will also help. Finally, a few other things to look at include: Small strongyles can cause chronic diarrhea and they can evade detection of routine fecal analysis. Ulcers can cause loose stools especially intermittent loose stools. Treats can also cause loose stools, for instance too many apples at a time. Your vet should be able to help you determine if the first two are sources of problems, and you can manage the third!

How much should be given per day as a supplement? I have a 1200lb thoroughbred, who has the worst topline. I would use this to build his topline up.

Asked by: Robin22
Hello, Thanks for the question. The Empower Boost product will put weight on a horse, which will generally show up across the ribs and other fat deposit areas - and it can be fed up to 3 lbs per day. To build topline, however, you will actually want to use Empower Topline Balance (see more here: which should be fed at about 2.5 - 3.5 lbs per day for your size horse to build up that topline quickly. Thank you!

Hi, I have a healthy QH who isn’t getting quality hay at my boarding facility. At home, I fed him 27 lbs of feed per day (1/2-3/4 in alfalfa) and LMF Super Sup. Can I replace my LMF Super Supplement w/Empower Boost, or do I need to add Balance? Thanks!

Asked by: BrazeB
Hello, Thanks for the question! The Empower Topline Balance would be the correct product to replace the Super Supplement with. The Empower Boost is a high fat rice bran product which will help with weight gain, but it will not provide the nutrients you are looking for to supplement the hay.

I own a retired Tennessee walker who is a hard keeper during the winter and an average keeper in the winter. He doesn't enjoy eating a ton of grain or supplements so I was wondering if I could cross this with your Topline balancer?

Asked by: ShyShell24
Hello, Thanks for the question. Yes, you can feed the Empower Boost with the Empower Topline Balance! It is a great way to add extra calories in support of an already-balanced diet.

Is empower boost a good supplement for horses with PSSM TYPE 1? And if yes what amount ?

Asked by: Kathleens
Hello, Thanks for the question. Empower Boost is great for horses with PSSM, to get more calories from fat in the diet. For horses with PSSM, we recommend minimizing starch and sugar per meal, and maximizing fiber intake and fat intake by providing 20-25% of the dietary calories from fat. Empower Boost can be added at 1 – 3 lbs per day to the current grain ration.
