The Train ‘n Leisure cubes are an excellent all round feed for recreational horses in light-medium work.
Train ‘n Leisure contains healthy and effective “long fibres”, hence the larger than usual cubes, as well as super fibres which help to promote gut health. Train n Leisure cubes are grain free and contain 4% fat, to assist with sustainable slow release energy to help fuel work and maintain condition without exacerbating excitable behaviour. The quality fats and oils used also assist in maintaining a healthy shine to the skin and coat and quality protein sources help to assist with muscle tone.
The cubes can also be easily softened with water into a mash making them ideal for veterans or equines with difficulty chewing.
Train n Leisure contains digestive cultures for additional gut health 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.

Train n Leisure 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.
