I'm looking for a good supplement for my 12 year old gelding in moderate work (mostly flat work, very little jumping, and lots of trail riding). I called the people at SmartPak who recommended that I put him on a joint support (which I was planning on doing anyways), and they also recommended that I either give him a multivitamin or some sort of ration balancer to make sure he's getting everything he needs. Right now he's on good quality hay and is an easy keeper.
After doing some research, I came up with Nutrena's Empower Balance Grass Ration for a ration balancer, or the choice of two multivitamins: SmartVite EZ Keeper Grass Pellets or MegaCell. Obviously if I get the ration balancer, I won't need the multivitamin, and I'm trying not to break the bank here (I'm a college student), so what would you recommend?
Skyy and I thank you in advance!!!
