Purina® Enrich Plus® Ration Balancing Horse Feed

Horses need more nutrition than forage alone can provide.

Today’s horses are typically limited to a single type of forage in one geographic area. Pastures in the same area or even different sections of the same pasture can have inconsistent nutrient values. Unfortified grains such as straight oats and corn can also have variable amounts of protein, minerals and vitamins. So horses need your help to achieve the nutritional balance they once derived naturally.

Enrich Plus® Ration Balancing Feed Adds Necessary Nutrients to Your Horse’s Diet

Enrich Plus® is a concentrated, pelleted ration balancing horse feed that may be fed as a horse’s sole ration along with quality hay or pasture to provide the proper balance of protein, vitamins and minerals without unnecessary calories. It can also be fed with unfortified whole grains.

Enrich Plus® Ration Balancing Feed is Best Suited for:

Easy Keepers: Easy Keepers who maintain body weight and condition on hay or pasture alone, or are not able to eat the minimum recommended amount of another feed without gaining unwanted weight.

Young, Growing Horses: Young, Growing Horses, who may require concentrated nutrition to support growth and development, but with fewer calories to support slower growth rate or reduced body condition when recommended.

Stallions & Early Gestation Mares: Stallions & Early Gestation Mares that may need a more concentrated source of nutrition. Also appropriate for working horses who may need a protein, vitamin and mineral supplementation.

Feeding Directions

Purina® Enrich Plus® ration balancing horse feed is designed to complement and fortify hay or pasture. The feeding recommendations are based on the following assumptions: an expected mature weight of approximately 1,100 pounds* and the horse is consuming at least 2.0%** of its body weight in hay or pasture (dry matter).

*For horses that do not approximate this expected mature weight (such as miniature horses, ponies and draft horses), feeding rates for mature horses at maintenance can be estimated based on 0.1 - 0.2 lbs Purina® Enrich Plus® per 100 lbs body weight per day.

**Always provide a minimum of 1% of the horse’s body weight in hay or the equivalent in pasture.



Age (months)Weight (lbs)Enrich Plus® (lbs/day)Hay (lbs/day)

9 - 17700 - 9002.0 - 2.514 - 18
18 -24900 - 10002.018 - 20

***More rapid rates of growth can be achieved by adding grain to the diet. However, given the inherent nutritional inconsistencies of straight grain diets, more rapid rates of gain are more safely and successfully achieved by using one of the completely fortified and balanced horse feeds by Purina. Contact your local Purina retailer for the feed that best suits your needs. The nutritional needs of foals less than four months of age are better satisfied with products such as Purina® Ultium® Growth, Strategy® GX or Omolene #300® horse feeds.

****The additional calories needed during the last trimester of gestation and during lactation can be provided by adding grain to the diet. However, given the inherent nutritional inconsistencies of straight grain diets, a more nutritionally balanced and desirable source of calories can be provided by using an appropriate Purina® horse feed designed to meet the needs of gestating and lactating broodmares. Contact your local Purina retailer for the feed that best suits your needs.
