Hi Everyone, I am new to horse forums and sort of rookie with horses;) I have an amazing 5 year quarter horse who is very healthy and athletic. I have been feeding her a sweet mix from our local feed store with 12% protein, and a good quality hay. She seems to be maintaining her weight just fine with me riding her at least twice a week. Since it is winter she isn't getting worked as hard as she will be in the summer as we will begin barrel racing, my question is should I look for a feed or supplement that will give her the energy she will need in the spring, possibly add alfalfa to her diet? Or leave her diet the same? I know other barrel horses who are suped up on all kinds of stuff, but I only want whats best for her health;) any suggestions on hay, feed, supplements would be greatly appreciated!!
