Vitamins? supplements?

I've got a five year old quarter horse, pretty hardy little guy. He is a pleasure horse, light work.
I read on a website that horses need:

Thiamin
Riboflavin
Niacin
Pantothenic Acid
Choline
Folic Acid
Pyridoxine
Biotin
B-12

Now, most pre-done feeds I have seen only contain biotin out of this list.. (and selenium, vitamins A, E, and D3, Copper, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus outside the list)

Should I worry about supplying these vitamins in a supplement?

If so, what are some good common ones?

BTW- I live in southern texas. We have little grass right now

Horses generally get what they need out of good quality hay and grass. Your vet or local feed store should know what is deficient in your area (around here its selenium). Complete feed can give addition vitamins/minerals as well.
