The Epol Rider Cubes/Super Rider Meal are widely used rations suitable for all horses and ponies in light – medium work. These products are suitable for horses that need to gain body condition as well as good doers in medium work.
This feed is available in both pellets and meal, and it is ideal for riding schools where management of multiple horses need to be simplified. These are well proven products that cover a variety of needs.
The use of quality protein boosts the amino acid profile and helps to develop and maintain muscle tone, while our carefully selected grains and fats ensure adequate energy for working horses. Epol Rider cubes/Super Rider meal also contains digestive cultures for superior digestive health.
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, making it further suitable for the larger yard.
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.

Rider Cubes and Super Rider Meal 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 1.2% of body weight per day (e.g the average 500 kg horse will need between 2.5 and 6kg 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 always available.
