What do you feed your Performance Horses?

Curious to know what people feed their performance horses (grain, hay, supps, ect)

Right now they are not getting as much as they do in the summer...when they start getting rode harder and hauling more then we up their grain a bit to keep them looking good.

JJ

Hay: 5-6 Flakes AM/PM Grass/Alfalfa (Heavier to the grass)
Grain: 1/2 Scoop Ultium, 1/2 Scoop Rice Bran (pelleted)
Supplements: Paprika, Biotin, EquiThrive, Silver Lining- Immune, Foot & Bone, Respiratory Support.

Scrat

Hay: 3 Flakes AM/PM Alfalfa
Grain: 1/2 Scoop Equine Sr., 1/2 Scoop Rice Bran
Supplements: Paprika, Biotin, Silver Lining- Immune, Foot & Bone

Polly

Hay: 4 Flakes AM/PM Alfalfa
Grain: 1/2 Scoop Equine Sr., 1/2 Scoop Rice Bran
Supplements: Paprika, Biotin, Silver Lining- Immune, Foot & Bone


So what do you guys feed your horses?

My horses are on pasture 24/7, with hay in the winter. They also get whole oats (the amount depends on how much they work or don't!) supplemented with about 1/2 cup of Barn Bag for Performance Horses by Life Data Labs. My mare also gets 1/2 cup of Farrier's Formula.

My filly who works lightly 6 days a week is on 6 flakes of hay 3 quarts of Nutrena XTN and 6 quarts of beet pulp. For supplements she is on 2 oz corn oil, 1 oz electrolyte and 10 grams MSM.

Yep...he eats like a draft. But he is a very busy horse so burns a lot. He is a machine and eats every little leaf and looks just right on it.

AM: 3qts SafeChoice, 3qts soaked beet pulp, 3 flakes hay
Afternoon: 2 flakes hay
PM: 3qts SafeChoice, 3qts soaked beet pulp, 3 flakes hay

My performance horses are both hard-keeper TBs, one more than the other. The hard keeper gets a hoof supplement for his bad feet.

Mine is a warmblood/TB just rising four, gets worked 5 times a week for 45 minutes or so at a time and normally is in pasture 24/7.

Daily: (split over two meals)
6qts 11% pellets
2 qts Beet Pulp (He LOVES this stuff like no other horse I've seen! Gets it all over his face.)
One flake alfalfa
Free Choice coastal Hay (If the grass is good he'll ignore this and just eat grass)

If for some reason he isn't getting worked for a while - such as injury - he gets one less qt of pellets daily. He used to get 2 flakes of alfalfa, but it was a little too much for him (am darn expensive to boot) so I cut it back to one a day.
