Effective muscle building also requires a lot of time and patience for horses. It is important to persevere with regular and frequent training. Long breaks can quickly lead to regression, and the steps taken were in vain. In order to achieve the desired muscle development of your horse, it is important to develop and adhere to a well thought-out training plan. However, this should not overtax the animal, but should be well-balanced. It is best to inform yourself about possible exercises and also plan enough breaks for regeneration between the training units so that injuries do not occur.
Good horse feed and special supplementary feed are very important for extensive training and to support rapid muscle development. The daily roughage should be absolutely sufficient and consist only of high-quality hay or hay substitute. This will give your horse important raw fiber, which is responsible for healthy digestion. By the way, mold or dirt are not uncommon, so you should always keep an eye on the condition of the feed.
Coordinate training and horse feed
In order to build muscle, it goes without saying that sufficient protein must be taken into account when choosing horse feed. Roughage can also contain protein - how much can only be determined with the help of an analysis. Oats as concentrated feed also contain a large amount of protein (nine to eleven percent), which is also of very high quality. Supplementary horse feed is used to compensate for deficiencies in muscle development and balanced training by feeding essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
In addition to roughage, you should definitely feed appropriate concentrated feed during the many training sessions that are necessary for muscle development. The strenuous exercises increase the need for energy and nutrients, for which common horse feed from hay, straw or grass is not sufficient. Accurate portioning is important. This depends on the horse's body weight and energy requirements, which change daily depending on performance. Energy sources are also a not insignificant factor to consider. Oil is recommended as such when the horse is undergoing endurance training. In contrast, sugar and starch are optimal for racing due to their rapid bio-availability.
Accelerate and support muscle growth with the right food
Important for the development of muscles is a good blood circulation, which provides the horse with strength and endurance. Our supplement Profi Aminoral is one of our bestsellers in the category and not only ensures the development of the muscular system, but also causes increased performance. It also supports metabolic processes that are essential for high performance.
Our EMH High Energy Muesli, as the name suggests, gives your horse fast and plenty of energy for successful training. This horse feed provides optimal muscle building through amino acids and causes a fast regeneration after stress.
