Amount of feed required is dependent on the body condition, the metabolism and the type of activity that the horse is used for. For each pound of Leading Edge fed daily below ½ pound per 100 pounds of the horse’s bodyweight add ¼ pound (115 grams) Brooks Enhancer or All Phase 20. Provide fresh clean water and free choice salt at all times with a minimum of 1% of the horse’s bodyweight in hay or equivalent pasture. Store in a cool dry location. Amount fed varies according to the quality of hay or pasture. Hay analysis is recommended to ensure a balanced ration.

Leading Edge is a cutting-edge feed that is a result of substantial research and technology. Leading Edge is formulated for horses active in high intensity disciplines requiring large amounts of energy. Leading Edge draws energy primarily from highly digestible fibre sources called “super fibres” and multiple fat sources including flax, soy oil, and rice bran. Leading Edge has a controlled starch and sugar level making it ideal for training young horses. The controlled NSC formula helps reduce muscle problems while the multiple fat sources and “super fibres” still provide substantial energy for active performance horses. Leading Edge has earned a reputation among many top trainers and owners for supplying total nutrition in a very palatable form that horses take to readily and stay on during training and competition.

Key Benefits:

  • A controlled starch and sugar level, with highly digestible fibre and multiple fat sources provide a very high level of energy, ideal for the demands of intense competition and training.
  • Formulated with stabilized flax and rice bran. Flax and rice bran are calorie dense energy sources that provide calories, digestible fibre and Omega 3 fatty acids from flax.
  • A well-balanced level of vitamins and chelated minerals provide micronutrient fortification lacking in forages alone and eliminates the need for expensive supplements when fed at recommended levels.
  • A full complement of B Vitamins including biotin supplies the daily maintenance requirements and a full spectrum of essential amino acids supplies protein for performance and muscle repair.
  • Brooks Oxiguard System of natural source Vitamin E and organic selenium work synergistically as effective antioxidants to minimize muscle soreness and fatigue.
  • A proprietary form of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, a prebiotic with a wide body of research improves digestion of fibre and promotes more efficient use of nutrients
