aracen ENDURO-PERFORMANCE is a high-oil, energy efficient mix designed to meet the specific requirements of the modern equine athlete.
Alternative energy sources in the formulation (oil and highly digestible “super-fibres”) help to reduce the reliance on cereals in the diet, supporting calm and manageable temperaments and maintaining optimum digestive health. These alternative energy sources are highly digestible and provide the equine athlete with long-lasting, controlled energy release throughout a competition.
ENDURO-PERFORMANCE contains quality protein sources and essential amino acids to support cell renewal, tissue and muscle repair, as well as maintaining topline and muscle tone. It is fully fortified with antioxidants, including vitamin E, which are essential to support normal recovery rates post exercise and immune function, particularly in those horses that are travelling and competing on a regular basis.
Research studies have concluded that feeding oil to horses in training resulted in a greater mobilization and utilization of oil as an energy source during long distance exercise. By using oil as a primary energy source, it helps the horse to ‘spare’ glycogen during endurance based exercise thus preserving glycogen for the maintenance of blood glucose levels and for the support of more power and sprint based exercise.
ENDURO-PERFORMANCE is an extremely versatile ration and has been successfully used in disciplines such as dressage, eventing and show jumping where a combination of both power and stamina are required. Valegro, Charlotte Dujardin’s Olympic-Gold-medal winning ride is powered by ENDURO-PERFORMANCE which gives him the stamina required to perform at the top- level.
