Feeding Directions:
Feeding directions with hay or pasture. Start with the amounts given for the weight and lifestyle of the horse. After observing the horse for a period of time, the amount fed may be increased or decreased by 10% to obtain the desired body condition and weight.

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 minimum of 1.0 to 1.2 lbs per 100 lbs 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.
  • Have plenty of clean, fresh water available at all times. Provide your horse with access to salt. Maintain an effective control program for internal parasites. Have the horse's teeth examined annually and consult your veterinarian on a regular basis.
If Changing to Ultimate Competition Horse Formula:
  • Make the feed change gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days.
  • Mix the new feed with the old, gradually increasing the amount of the new feed while decreasing an equal amount of the old.
  • Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1 pound per day for each horse.

Is this dry feed or pellets

Asked by: Buckymay
Thank you for choosing Purina. The Ultium is labeled as a textured product because it contains both a pellet and the Amplify nugget. Ultium will have some molasses, but is not considered a wet feed. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact the Purina Customer Service department at 1-800-227-8941.

Will this feed make the horse "hot"?

Asked by: nrsbette
There are many factors that can be presumed to cause a horse to appear "hot." You will first need to analyze your horse's lifestyle, health and nutrition. In some cases, an excess in energy may cause the horse to behave differently. Please call our consumer customer service number at 800-227-8941 to discuss your current feeding program and help you make the best choice for your situation. The Ultium Competition is a high calorie, high fat, and low starch/sugar percentage product.

Can You Feed a Horse Mineral Block With This Feed ?

Asked by: CowGirl1994
You may have a horse mineral block with the Ultium, but we only suggest a mineral block if you are not feeding the appropriate amount of Ultium each day. If you are meeting the minimal feeding requirements, then you should only have a white salt block along with hay/pasture and fresh water.

I have a 14yo quarter horse I use to barrel race and he is currently being treated for EPM. would this be a good choice to help with recovery and weight gain or do you have another product you would recommend?

Asked by: Mon3y
Thanks for choosing Purina. Ultium Competition would be a great choice. This is our highest calorie per pound product we offer in the fortified feeds. You will want to feed at least 4 lbs. per day to the 1000 lb. horse to meet minimal nutrient requirements. Then, we suggest to increase according to body condition and activity level. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

will this strengthen there hooves?

Asked by: 5starfeed
The Ultium Competition is a super premium product and one of the best we have on the market. When fed at the proper amount, you should see good hoof health. Remember, it does take quite some time for hoof growth to be visible.
