Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feed for hard keepers! This feed has been great for my senior horses and hard keepers because it has a high fat content.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feed I originally purchased this to feed to my hard keeper. He gained weight and looked amazing. I've been feeding it since to all of my horses. I often purchase horses that no one wants or have been neglected for awhile. They gain weight well on this feed. I love it.

It's also worked for our 4H hard-working horses of all different breeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 30 days later, he regained all the weight back After my 21 yo OTTB was switched to a 3% all stock feed, he dropped nearly 300 lbs almost overnight. I struggled trying to find the right feed for him to get his weight back up. At first I tried Nutrena Senior, as recommended by colleagues, but quickly realized that it did not provide enough calories to sustain his level of exercise. Then I found Nutrena Perform. Not only does his coat gleam once again, but in just over a month, he has almost completely regained the 300 lbs he lost coming out of winter. In addition to this feed, I am giving him Dumor Weight Builder as well which is working wonders for my still very active senior. Thank you Nutrena for providing a high quality, high calorie feed that meets his needs while preventing metabolic issues due to high starch diets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my hard keeper I started my appendix QH gelding on Nutrena perform 2 months ago when I was noticing that Tribute feed was not doing anything for him. I also started him on an ulcer supplement, within a week I could tell a difference in his body condition after starting Nutrena Perform. Two months later and I cant believe how amazing he looks. This feed provides higher fat but low NSC so he doesnt get hot. It's the perfect balance for his high metabolism. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I switched my barrel racing horses to this a couple months ago. I have 2 Quarter Horses, a 5 year old Barrel Racing Futurity colt and an 8 year old mare that is a hard keeper. I was feeding Safe Choice Original. I felt that I needed a little more fuel for the Colt as he is becoming more solid on the pattern. Their top lines are filled out, they are super shiny, and not hot. I also feel that Safe Choice offers so many choices in this line that I have the option to change it up as needed. I have used Safe Choice for 5 years now on colts and older horses. I highly recommend it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this feed!! I tried this feed when I noticed my 16 year old gelding dropped weight in the winter. I fed the recommended amount on the bag and noticed a difference within a few weeks. Its been a few months now and Ive had to cut way back it helped so much!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mold! I used this feed for several years with no problems. Then about 8 months ago started having mold problems over and over. I tried purchasing from different feed store and had same problems. I don't know what changed at plant but I would not feed this to any horses that you think a lot off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth it. Pony is an Arab cross who lives outside 24/7 in MT. I feed performance every day alongside a VitE supplement in the winter. I've seen really good changes in his overall health and energy. This is the first year he's shed out on time, and not hung on to his coat and I think I have his good nutrition to thank for that. He also has developed a beautiful topline (excerise was also involved) and is muscling up nicely.
Date published: 2019-03-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Very pleased with results! I purchased this product 6 months ago when I bought a new horse. He was thin and had no top line. Within 2 months of feeding this product he was putting on weight and developing a top line.

What would be a good feed for a 29 yr old miniature horse with Cushings that is a 3 bcs score that can eat hay and pasture? She is on pergolide and has pretty good teeth. I would like her to gain40 lbs before winter.

What is the minimum in pounds this feed can be fed.. My Horse is 800lbs ..Thank You

Asked by: Faithopelove86
Hello, Thanks for the question. For an 800 lb horse in 'maintenance' mode (i.e. not doing much in the way of exercise regularly), the feeding rate is 1.5-3.5 lbs per day. If your horse is in light exercise, then the recommended rate is 3.2-5.2 lbs per day. You can find a feeding rate calculator on the product page at https://www.nutrenaworld.com/product/safechoice-perform-horse-feed if you would like to see feeding rates for further activity levels. Thank you!

How Many Calories Per Pound Is This Feed ? Thank You

Can This Feed Be Fed To a Young Pleasure Horse Who Is Lightly Rode but is a Very Hard Keeper Without Making Them Very Hot and Getting to Much Sugar ?

Asked by: CowGirl1994
Hello, Thank you for the question. Yes, the SafeChoice Perform can be utilized for the horse you describe. Keep in mind that overall calorie intake can contribute to energy levels, as well as sugar intake, and if the horse is not receiving enough exercise time, they may be "hot" no matter what product you feed. The other product you could feed, in conjunction with the SafeChoice Perform, is our Empower Boost high fat rice bran supplement. You can add up to 3 lbs per day of that product to provide a boost of calories to help get them up to condition, and then cut back once they are at condition until you find the feeding rate at which he maintains condition. Note that Empower Boost should not be fed as the sole grain ration, as it is not fortified for that.

My horse is 27. I ride him 3 or 4 times a week. He is a very happy man! Sadly he has lost a lot of weight,muscle especially in his TOPLINE!! Will this help? Any info is welcome! He get 4 qts of producer pride sweet feed and 2 oz of cool calories daily. 

Asked by: Mustangirl7
Hello, Thanks for the question. Yes, you would definitely see an improvement in topline, as well as overall condition and muscling, if you were to switch to the SafeChoice Perform horse feed. The amino acid profile, as well as overall levels of vitamins and minerals, will be substantially better. If you know his weight, you can use the feeding rate calculator found on the Nutrenaworld.com product page (https://www.nutrenaworld.com/product/safechoice-perform-horse-feed) to determine how much to feed him. We do recommend weighing the feed in your scoop to ensure he is receiving the correct amount, for reference though the SafeChoice Perform weighs approximately 1.5 lbs per quart.

Hi, I have a 8 quart bucket ; How many pounds of feed would I be feeding if I fill to the 2 quart line or 4 quart line ? Thank You

Asked by: Harness1986
Hello, Thanks for the question. SafeChoice Perform weighs approximately 1.5 lbs per quart, so your 2 quart line would be approximately 3 lbs and your 4 quart line would represent approximately 6 lbs. However, we do always recommend weighing what fits in your scoop to be certain of the amount you are providing.

I`m trying to bring a horse in heavy work up to show weight. Are the feeding recommendations for putting weight on horses or maintaining horses?Is this feed likely to make my horse hot?

Asked by: RedRockteer
Hello, Great question. The directions are for maintaining weight. If you want to put weight on a horse, then feed for one activity level higher than the horse is actually at, to provide the additional calories needed for the weight gain. The SafeChoice Perform is a controlled starch, high fat product, so should not make your horse. If you do find you want to put more weight on, with less of the SafeChoice, try supplementing with Empower Boost, our high fat rice bran supplement. Thank you!
