Item Information

Ultium Competition Horse Formula is highly researched nutrition for the high energy demands of hard-working equine athletes, allowing them to compete at their highest levels. When others hit the wall, your horse keeps going.

Patented, proprietary technology is the culmination of decades of Purina equine research. Ultium Competition Horse Formula has been successfully field-tested across a wide spectrum of competitive disciplines.

Unique pellets and extruded Amplify nuggets aim to prevent sorting, reduce waste and transport easily. Highly palatable and digestible, it's nutrient dense, and highly efficient so you can feed less.

Sustained Energy System features a unique blend of three fuel sources:
1. Fat
2. Fermentable Fiber
3. Soluble carbohydrates (starch and sugar)

Research in horses has shown that the dietary energy source can influence activity and excitability. Specifically, when compared to concentrates high in starch and sugar, the feeding of a diet higher in fat and fiber but with less starch and sugar helps promote more manageable behavior. Ultium Competition Horse Formula seamlessly blends three fuel sources into a smooth, unbroken "steady" stream of energy. Horses consuming Ultium Competition Horse Formula will receive more calories from highly digestible fiber sources and vegetable oils, and fewer calories from sugar and starch than if they were being fed a traditional grain based diet. This type of dietary formulation provides the horse with what is referred to as "cool"energy. Studies have shown that certain horses are sensitive to higher levels of sugar and starch in their diet. These horses tend to be less excitable and more manageable when fed lower levels of starch and sugar.

  • Sustained Energy System - A unique blend of three fuel sources to provide a steady level of highly digestible energy: soluble carbohydrates, fats and fermentable fiber.
  • Targeted Nutrition Delivery System - Unique amino acid profile and top-quality fuel sources replenish glycogen and protein stores in muscles to assist in muscle repair with less muscle fatigue for faster bounce back, competition after competition.
  • Nutrient and Energy-Dense - Less feed is required for maintenance of body condition when compared to feeds with lower energy density, helping prevent digestive upset.
  • Reduced Starch, Higher Fat - May help reduce the risk of colic and other digestive disturbances that can occur when feeding large quantities of grain
  • Purina Amplify High-Fat Nugget - A proprietary blend of vegetable oils, flax seed and rice bran smooths the glucose and insulin response to dietary starch and sugar, leveling out blood sugar levels for a pronounced calming effect.
  • Highly Fermentable Fiber - Metabolized in the hindgut, providing slow-releasing energy and preserving muscle glycogen. Anecdotal evidence in field tests also indicates Ultium Competition Horse Formula may be beneficial for horses that have a tendency to tie up.
  • Balance of Vitamins and Minerals - Including B-Vitamins, Iron, Copper, Calcium, Phosphorus and Magnesium: blood-building nutrients that help optimize red blood cell production and increase oxygen capacity in exercising horses. The proper balance of Calcium and Phosphorus promotes stronger bones.

Purina Ultium Competition Horse Formula, 50 lb. is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 638.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ONLY FEED your horses need! My horses are 26 and 27. Athena is a picky eater but she finds this feed delicious. My gelding Linger loves it and whinnies nonstop until he gets it. Each get their food soaked due to expired teeth. It does every thing it says it does quickly while keeping my TB's happy and content.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feed! I've been feeding Purina ultium for years now and plan on using it for many more, I first tried it out on my Appendix, he was such a hard keeper and so picky about his food, he never left even so much as a pellet behind and just blossomed into a beautiful gelding. My now retired barrel horse thrives on it! It's so palatable and always so fresh when I open a new bag! I also love how it comes with the ampfliy nuggets! I use to buy them separately and to dress with it and now I don't have to because the ultium is loaded with it! I recommend this feed to everyone, I'm so thankful for it and how well my boys look and feel. Absolutely hands down the best feed on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from top quality I chose this feed after calling Purina Nutrition. They asked about my horse-age/weight/condition/work/hay etc. and recommended this feed several years ago. It's high quality and because I can feed less, it's actually cost effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feed! Purina Ultium has one of the highest amounts of calories per pound. 1900 kcal/per pound. And has one of the highest percentages of fat at 12.5%. Compared to other feeds. It's the only feed I HAVE FOUND to put and keep weight on my seniors and hard keepers when fed in proper amounts. It's certainly not cheap, but worth it. All of my horses look great on it and love it.

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.

What is the the feeding ratio perpound of body weight for a horse?

Asked by: tbmi
Thanks for choosing Purina. The Ultium Competition will need to be fed at the minimum rate of 0.4 lbs. per 100 lbs. in body weight. If you are unable to feed at this rate without too much body condition gained, then we would suggest transitioning to a different diet that is lower in calories per pound.

How many calories per lb is this? Is it considered a "complete feed?"

Asked by: Equestrian12345
Contains 1900 Kcal/lb. It is not a complete with roughage diet, so will need to be fed along with hay.
