Pavo SportsFit - Performance sports feed for all disciplines

About Pavo SportsFit

A non-heating performance muesli for horses requiring strength, power and endurance without becoming over excitable. The ideal combination of energy from oil and starch help support the energy demands of performance horses at all levels. The readily digestible starch from puffed cereal grains provides an easily absorbed supply of energy. Together with the highly digestible cereals, an oil content of 9% provides an energy value of over 14MJ per kg muesli, delivering slow release energy and promoting excellent levels of of power and stamina.

The blend of soya and linseed oil delivers an essential balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids that are an ideal fuel for heavy exercise and endurance. Research has shown that Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids contribute to a healthy shiny coat and Omega 3 help suppress inflammatory reactions. SportsFit also contains high levels of the key antioxidants vitamin E and selenium to help protect against free radical damage during strenuous exercise.

Linseed and soya flakes contain high levels of the essential amino acids lysine, methionine and threonine, which are indispensible for building and maintaining muscle tone. The fibre from linseed supports the intestines and is therefore suitable for horses with digestive disturbances.

Update December 2014: soya flakes have replaced the soya beans. The nutritional value remains the same; only horses seem to prefer eating the soya flakes.

Frequently asked questions

How can you support your horse with additional energy without getting it too "hot"?
A

Fuels have different attributes. Brennstoffe haben verschiedene Eigenschaften. Gas has a high combustion-value, it creates a lot of energy (for high performance). Diesel has different attributes, the combustion is less powerful, but the car drives more economic and the engine lasts longer. A horse is similar to a car.

The horse can use fibres as a source for energy (responsible for more than 60 % of the energy a horse can take up) and also starch and oil. Starch can make the horses "hot" (the "oat-effect"). When you feed oil, you can give the horse lots of energy (2,5 times more than through starch), but the horse will not get "hot". Oil is more and more used for sporthorses. Pavo SportsFit delivers the perfect balance between "slow" and "fast" energy, with which your horse will have enough energy and stamina without getting out of control.
 

Is Pavo Sports Fit a whole feed or just a supplement?
A

In combination with roughage, Pavo SportsFit is a whole feed consisting all important minerals and vitamins. Normally you do not have to feed any additional feed (depending on the daily amount of Pavo SportsFit in the diet). For feeding advice please contact us.
