It depends on what you're feeding. Generally, a horse only need a overall vit/min supplement if it's not getting any fortified feed (sweet feed or pelleted feeds). Or the horse is getting 50% or less of the recommended quantity of a fortified feed.

If the horse is getting some feed, but not much, and is on Grass or Timothy hay, I like Select II, Grand Vite, Accel, or Augment, in that order.

If the horse is getting only beet pulp, unfortified grains, or hay pellets/cubes as their concentrate, I like Uckele Equi-Base Grass, SmartPak's Smart Vite Maintenance Grass, LinPro, Just Add Oats, or Equine Challange, in that order.
