Horse feed help?

I have an arabina mare who I compete in some endurance but mostly pleasure riding.
She is not an easy keeper, and also a very picky eater. I would like to feed her a pelleted feed. What is a good feed to give her that also will taste good to her?

I fed my endurance horses Safe Choice, Milk Plus and XTN. If they had a tendency to trot off too much weight, I added Empower.

You should try Tribute's Kalm Ultra. It is a high fat, high fiber feed. Its full of calories and I use it on all my harder keepers. It is a pellet, but is softer than most pellets from all the oil and a little molasses. It is lower in starches and sugars than traditional sweet feeds/pellets. I have had GREAT results with this one! I bet you'll love it....and she will too!!!!

Depends on where you live and what you can get ;)

I use Sentinal performance LS is a bigger pellet (pressure cooked) but it's easier for them to digest. It is low in startch and sugars and high in protein and fat. Calories per LBS are 1500. My rescue gained gained 140lbs in less than two months.
It's specifically for performance horses, hard keepers, and rescues

Thankyou all so much for your help,
I live in south texas. I just have a few more questions, what is kalm ultra? Who are their producers?

Tribute Feeds makes the Essential K and Kalm Ultra I don't think you get it in TX

Might look for a Kent Feed Dealer
Try their Dynasty Secure
Topline 32
Or maybe the Sential LS

Tribute is awesome feed. I used to buy it all the time till the dealer here stopped business with them. I feed my picky mares Carb Guard by Blue Seal. It's mainly beet pulp with min/vit added. I soak it for 30 mins or so beforehand.

It is so hard to help somebody without a zip code because not all feeds are avaliable everywhere some are regional and some are national and some are "local local"

Haha this is true. Thanks everyone for all your help. My horse is in conroe tx, its very close to houston tx. Right now she is on safe balance which is 14% protein and 8% fat, which so far is going well but she hasnt been doing any hard work because I gave her a few months of rest to gain weight.
