newbie needs help

Hi there i have just bought a 15.2 irish cob he is 4 year old and has recently been broken and ridden for about 2 weeks and going well, he is only being used for hacking 2 maybe 3 days a week for a few hours and is on grass livery throughout the summer, what sort of hard feed should he be getting?

Thanks Claire

if he keeps his weight well on the grass and your just doing hackign on him he doesn't need any. my horses were used for mainly the same thing and they went well on just grass in summer. if its a matter of catching him {coming when called} give him a handful or 2 of complete feed pellets, not for feed persay{sp?} but so he comes.
