Only the highest quality materials, all of vegetable origin,are used, and every ingredient is carefully selected by following strict quality control procedures, before being included in any batch. Animal derivatives are not included in any of our feeds. The formulations for the rations are fixed, so that quality and consistency are maintained throughout, and the company's "Open Declaration" policy means that each ingredient is listed on the bag label in order of inclusion.
Every Saracen Horse Feed diet is made entirely from individual feedingstuffs, each of which the horse would eat if fed separately. These ingredients are then balanced with a high profile vitamin and mineral specification, so that all the nutrients are present in the correct amounts when fed according to recommendations. This means that optimum levels can be achieved for the horse's health and performance.
The feeds are designed to match the needs of specific types of horses, therefore each of the compounds contains the level of protein, energy, fibre, vitamins and minerals that is relevant to the horse it is intended for. Particular attention is paid to the digestibility of the ration, and consequently, the main base for the feeds is alfalfa.This provides a valuable source of highly digestible and nutritious fibre, unlike cereal by-products which are indigestible in comparison. This added digestibility makes Saracen diets very efficient and cost effective, giving excellent value for money.
