Which feed to choose

My barn is going to begin providing feed in August. This means I will be changing my horses diet to a Purina Product. I have three choices.

Strategy, Ultium, or Equine Senior.

My horse is 14 years old, and I ride about three times a week right now, but I am hoping to ride five times a week next semester. My rides are usually fairly moderate excretion for him, although sometimes I ride a little harder on Saturdays when I have more time to devote to cooling him off. I imagine he is to young for the senior feed, so that leaves me with either Strategy or Ultium. I thought Ultium would be to much for his excersize level but a friend of mine at the barn says she feeds Ultium with no weight gain or energy problems and she has ridden once in the last nine weeks. The barn is averaging the price of the various feeds, so I would be getting more for my money by feeding the Utium, but I am not sure. I don't know a lot about nutrition so I thought I would ask for some advice.

If you're paying the same, go with the Ultium.

Your horse definitely doesn't need the senior feed, and if you're going to be riding up to 5 times a week, the Ultium should help keep your horse at optimum weight.

If I couldn't get Triple Crown Complete, which is what I'm feeding now, I'd go with Ultium or Blue Seal. They're both good feeds.
