*This is the recommended (min.) amount of hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, reduce the feeding rate of Strategy Healthy Edge horse feed by 1 pound for every additional 2 pounds of hay fed.
**Do not feed less than 0.3 pounds per 100 pounds of body weight per day. If your horse gains too much weight at that (min.) feeding rate, then you should replace Strategy Healthy Edge horse feed with Enrich Plus ration balancing feed.
For best horse feeding results: Feeding rates will vary with size, age, temperament, health status, forage quality, climate and activity level. Feed at regular times - at least twice daily - with three daily feedings preferred. Let horses feed in a natural position from troughs with large bottoms, placed at normal head height or lower. Do not feed free-choice. Prevent the rapid eating by the horse of any feedstuff. Reduce and/or delay feeding a horse which is hot, excited or showing pain, has fever or diarrhea. Consult your veterinarian if any problems arise. Always feed a (min.) of 1.0 to 1.2 lb. per 100 lb. of body weight of good quality, clean hay or the equivalent in pasture. Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days. Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1.0 lb. per day for each horse.

Purina Strategy Healthy Edge, 50 lb. is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Feed! I bought a OTTB mare 3 months ago, about 100(+) ;lbs underweight, ribby with a dull, shabby coat and stringy mane and tail. She was sucked in and needed some serious groceries. After researching plenty of feeds, I saw that Strategy Healthy Edge had all the extra oils and goodies I would be buying separate right inside the feed. Still hesitant, as the old owners has stated she was a very picky eater and wouldn't "touch" grain/sweet feeds, I went ahead and purchased a bag to try it out. Best. Decision. Ever. Made. In addition to quality alfalfa and grass hays, Strategy Healthy Edge in her daily feed routine has made such an amazing difference! She loves her feed, and will whinny from the time she sees me enter the feed room until her Strategy Healthy Edge is in her bucket, ready for her to demolish. I swear, it has to be the best part of her day-lol. 12 weeks later, my mare looks like a completely different horse. She is filled out completely (even her topline!), her coat is shining, her mane & tail are thick, full and just beautiful! The barn owner is just as amazed at the results this product has shown in my mare, that he has even started purchasing it for his senior gelding who has never looked better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb feed! I've been using this feed for all my horses (from a 8hh mini to a 16.3hh Draft) as soon as it came on the market (10+ years?) My horses maintain their weight/condition year round, soft/shining coats (evenI in winter), good hoof & mane/tail growth. I used it for weight gain on a rescue horse(pictured) with dramatic results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has the extra nutrition needed by some horses I have fed Strategy in the white bag for many years. Now that my mare is 26 years old and moved from the climate in California to the high desert in Colorado, her needs have changed. Strategy healthy edge provides the nutrition she needs for this climate.

Why use purina strategy versus purina senior for a 25 year old?

Asked by: KathieT
The Purina Senior will have roughage replacement and can be used to replace a portion, or all, hay for any mature horse. If your horse does not have any issues with chewing and digesting hay, then they may do fine on the Strategy. These two diets are formulated differently and will have completely different feeding rate minimums as well. Please follow the tag instructions to ensure you are meeting your horse's nutrient needs. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call us at 800-227-8941.
