Equus Fiber Max Omega
Specifically formulated for premium endurance in performance and maintenance horses
A beet pulp-based feed high in calories, fat & fiber and low in nonstructural carbohydrates (Does not contain corn, barley, or oats). Increases fermentation and decreases digestive problems such as hindgut acidosis in the digestive system of the horse. High fiber and high fat ingredients increase caloric intake without increasing starch. This reduces excitability and heightened awareness allowing for a much cooler horse.
Omega–3 & Omega–6 fatty acids promote a healthier coat while also aiding in immune response
All natural-source Vitamin E elevates plasma tocopherol more effectively than synthetic vitamin E which allows the horse to recover more quickly from soreness after strenuous exercise.
Suitable for horses with insulin resistance, Cushing’s disease or those predisposed to tying up. Due to the low starch nature of this feed it decreases the risk of insulin resistance by reducing the large fluctuations in glucose you would see in high starch feeds.
Specifically formulated and nutritionally balanced for foals and weanlings
A 15% protein, textured “sweet feed,” which features precise levels of Lysine, Calcium, Phosphorous, Copper, Zinc and other trace minerals to aid in the proper development of muscle and sound structure in the young, rapidly growing, horse.

The Equus Nutrition System Advantage
Highest Quality Ingredients
All Equus diets are oat based, combining the highest quality oats; steam flaked barley and cracked corn with the highest quality proteins, vitamins and minerals to meet the strict demands of your horse.
Better Mineral Absorption
Equus uses chelated minerals that are bio-available, proteinated trace minerals for improved absorption.
Controlled Energy Source
Vegetable oils and Stabilized Rice Bran are used as additional fat sources to reduce the demand on carbohydrates as the sole energy source, calories supplied from fat metabolize differently and offer a more controlled source of energy and can help prevent “heated” horses.
More Digestibility, Less Stress
Yeast cultures are offered in all diets, helping improve digestibility of fibers and reducing the incidence of stress in active horses.
Biotin is included in all formulations to help maintain hoof wall integrity.
Helps Fight Mycotoxins
Equus diets contain ingredients to help avoid and reduce the effects of mycotoxins, which can come from grain, pasture or forage sources.
Less Feeding, More Savings
Quality ingredients cost more, however the increase in available energy resulting from increased fat levels and digestible dietary fiber can mean feeding decreased amounts. With the price of Equus Nutrition products being competitive to other products in the market today, a cheaper feed can actually cost you more to feed. Energy density in the Equus Nutrition System can lead to big savings year in and year out when you choose this balanced nutrition program for your horse.
