Ultium® Competition Horse Formula is highly researched nutrition for the high energy demands of hard-working equine athletes, allowing them to compete at their highest levels. When others hit the wall, your horse keeps going.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND ULTIUM® COMPETITION HORSE FORMULA
Patented, proprietary technology is the culmination of decades of Purina® equine research. Ultium® Competition Horse Formula has been successfully field-tested across a wide spectrum of competitive disciplines.
Unique “pellets and extruded Amplify® nuggets” aim to prevent sorting, reduce waste and transport easily. Highly palatable and digestible, it’s “nutrient dense,” and “highly efficient” so you can “feed less.”
Sustained Energy System® features a unique blend of three (3) fuel sources:
2. Fermentable Fiber
3. Soluble carbohydrates (starch and sugar)
Research in horses has shown that the dietary energy source can influence activity and excitability. Specifically, when compared to concentrates high in starch and sugar, the feeding of a diet higher in fat and fiber but with less starch and sugar helps promote more manageable behavior. Ultium® Competition Horse Formula seamlessly “blends” three fuel sources into a smooth, unbroken “steady” stream of energy. Horses consuming Ultium® Competition Horse Formula will receive more calories from highly digestible fiber sources and vegetable oils, and fewer calories from sugar and starch than if they were being fed a traditional grain based diet. This type of dietary formulation provides the horse with what is referred to as “cool” energy. Studies have shown that certain horses are sensitive to higher levels of sugar and starch in their diet. These horses tend to be less excitable and more manageable when fed lower levels of starch and sugar.
