SHAPE-UP™ is a low starch, high fibre mix designed to provide a balanced diet at low intake levels, and to help maintain a normal, healthy metabolism. It can be used as a calorie controlled ration for those more at risk of laminitis, Equine Metabolic Syndrome or Cushing's in order to meet micronutrient requirements without excess sugar, calories and starch intake.
SHAPE-UP™ is the result of nearly two years of research and development and incorporates some of the most recent and up to date nutritional innovations for horses and ponies that require a low starch and low calorie feed. The ration is based on Saracen Horse Feeds' "Super-fibre" technology, meaning that energy is dervied from slow-release, fibre sources that produce a minimal glycemic response post feeding. The high fibre content of SHAPE-UP™ and the inclusion of an original neutralizing ingredient also help to maintain a healthy digestive system for those good-doers that may be on a restricted forage ration.
SHAPE-UP™ should be fed at the recommended feeding levels, and also in conjunction with a suitable forage source. Saracen can supply you with a specific SHAPE-UP measuring cup, contact us today. For effective weight loss and weight management, hay should be analysed for its non-structural carbohydrate (NSC) content and ideally should contain less than 10-12% NSC. Providing that your horse is sound, every effort should be made to implement a sensible and regular exercise regime.

These recommendations are intended as a guide only. Intakes may vary according to the quality and type of forage used, the amount of grazing time available and, in addition, the horse's metabolic rate and type of work being carried out. We recommend that you speak to a Saracen Nutritionist if you require further assistance if your horse has been diagnosed as being obese, needs to lose weight or is suffering from laminitis.
These recommendations assume a forage intake of 1.5% of body weight, and that the horse/pony is in light exercise (worked 3-4 times weekly for light hacking, pleasure rides etc)
Body weight Feed per day
200-450 Kg 0.5 Kg / day
450-550 Kg 0.8 Kg / day
>550 Kg 1.0 Kg / day
We recommend you add 1-2 ounces of salt to the feed or ensure free access to a salt lick.
