Concentrated Veteran Feed Balancer for elderly horses and ponies.
Horse and Pony Direct’s Veteran Feed Balancer is ideal for elderly horses and ponies who have higher nutritional requirements, whose digestive systems are not working as efficiently as they once were and those who need nutritional support in specific areas such as mobility (younger horses should use the Everyday Feed Balancer). The Veteran Feed Balancer is the best way to ensure that your elderly horse or pony has all the nutritional requirements that they need to stay happy, healthy and active later in life. All Horse and Pony Direct feed balancers contain NO whole-cereals or molasses.

How does Horse and Pony Direct Veteran feed balancer compare with others on the market?
Why are Horse and Pony Direct feed balancers cheaper than other feed balancers?
Because Horse and Pony Direct only supplies feed balancers direct to the public the prices do not include distributor, wholesaler and retailer mark ups. These savings are passed on to you, our customers. The feed balancers themselves are made with the same high quality ingredients that you will find in other, more expensive feed balancers. Our aim is to make the best value feed balancers that you can buy, and if you are not 100% satisfied we have a money back guarantee.
What is a concentrated feed balancer?
Horse and Pony Direct feed balancers are 25% more concentrated than standard feed balancers, meaning that a 15kg bag of a Horse and Pony Direct feed balancer is the equivalent to a 20kg bag of a standard feed balancer. Feed balancers include a high percentage of wheat-feed and oat-feed, which do not offer benefits to the horse or pony. At Horse and Pony Direct we made the percentage of active ingredients to wheat/oat-feed higher, so your horse or pony gets the same amount of active ingredients whilst being fed 25% less cereal. This enables us to keep the price down, as we save on haulage and storage, and these savings are reflected in the price.
