Some horses and ponies can become over excitable and unpredictable when fed feeds containing a high level of cereals. Cereals contain starch which is digested relatively quickly by the horse producing what is known as “quick release energy”. It is this type of energy than can cause some horses or ponies to become fizzy.
To reduce the risk of behavioural problems it is advisable to reduce the amount of cereal starch in the diet. Spillers Cool Mix have controlled levels of cereal starch and good levels of fibre to help reduce the risk of over-excitability. We’ll help you keep things calm and controlled.
Cool Mix from Spillers has developed a great reputation for delivering its coolness promise and continues to be the best non-heating*, low energy mix on the market.

A non-heating feed is one that is less likely to produce excitable behaviour in some horses and ponies when fed at the recommended rate.
