If your horse has good hard "shiney" feet, nice coat, healthy weight, good hair growth, moves well (no joint issues), and has plenty of energy, then you do not need to add any supplements.
If you're only feeding hay, or hay with grain or feed below the recommended levels, then you should consider adding an all around vit/min supplement like Grand Vite or horsetech.com's High Point, just to make sure your horse is getting all of the vitamins and minerals he/she needs.
If you don't feed any grain, you can use a small amount of plain oats or beet pulp to mix in your vitamin, or you can get a ration balancing feed that you only feed 1-2 lbs of, like Triple Crown's 30% supplement or Buckeye's Grow 'n Win. Progressive makes some good ones too.
