Feeding Percentages

Feeding a horse the right amount of roughage vs. concentrate is important to prevent your horse from being overweight/underweight.
Roughage is the basic feed (i.e. hay)
Concentrate is a little more for energy (i.e. oats)

Here’s a little chart to follow by:

Level of Work Percentage of Rougage Percentage of Concentrate
Maintenance 100% 0%
Light Work 70% 30%
Meduim Work 60% 40%
Hard Work 50% 50%
Fast Work 30% 70%
