The Epol Cool Rider Cubes are an excellent all-round feed, for horses in light-medium work. This cube is suitable for horses that maintain their condition well and/or for those that become “hot”.
The Cool Rider Cubes have a reduced starch level and are grain free, which is ideal for those with a sensitivity to such ingredients and promotes “calm” behaviour in young inexperienced horses, and mature highly strung horses.
The use of quality protein boosts the amino acid profile and helps to develop and maintain muscle tone while our added fats provide adequate energy forwork while assisting with skin and coat condition.
Epol Cool Rider cubes also contain digestive cultures for superior gut health, making it ideal for horses needing additional digestive support.
A full range of vitamins and minerals are included to ensure that this product covers the nutritional requirements of the class of horse for which this product is intended and therefore no further vitamins and minerals are needed if fed at recommended levels.
Feeding horses correctly requires a good eye and careful monitoring of your horse’s individual needs, condition and behaviour. We therefore suggest you contact us directly for personalised feeding advice.

Cool Rider Cubes should only ever be used to supplement good quality hay and/ or pasture.
To ensure a healthy gut, good quality forage should be provided at 1.5% of bodyweight per day (7.5kg for a 500kg horse) , with an absolute minimum of 1% if calories need to be restricted.
Always ensure the minimum roughage requirement is met and then adjust the amount of feed depending on condition and workload. Meal sizes should preferably be limited to between 2 and 2.5 kg per feeding.
Depending on the workload, age, condition and quality of the available roughage, the average horse will require between 0.5% and 1% of body weight per day (e.g the average 500 kg horse will need between 2.5 and 5 kg of concentrate per day depending on daily needs).
It is very important to ensure that your horse is fed the correct portion of food by weight, not by volume! All feeds have different densities and thus do not weigh the same. Therefore, it is very important to establish exactly what weight (kg) your scoop holds of the specific product you are feeding.
Always introduce any new feed or product over a period of 7-14days and ensure fresh water is available at all times.
