Every horse is a bit different, especially when it comes to their dietary needs. Some horses have slower metabolisms and tend to carry extra weight, no matter how much exercise they get or what their diet consists of. Many equestrians refer to these horses as “easy keepers,” but the fact is, they are not easy to keep at all! In fact, many of them are at an increased risk for laminitis and insulin resistance due to their weight. Horses and ponies with a slow metabolism require specialized management practices in order for them to thrive. Read our blog post, Feeding the Easy Keeper, to explore how to maximize the nutrition that you feed your horse while promoting weight loss.
