GoStance - balanced energy feed for performance horses


GoStance is a complete feed that provides all the nutrients your working horse requires for health, vitality and peak performance. GoStance provides 23% Non Structural Carbohydrate (NSC).

GoStance is also designed to cater for horses living in hot climates and grazing high oxalate pastures (eg. Buffel grass, Kikuyu, Setaria grass). GoStance contains extra electrolytes and calcium, to meet their nutrient needs and assist in avoiding diseases including the puffs/anhydrosis and big head.

GoStance is designed to provide extra energy for performance horses.  GoStance is part of the Stance Equine Feeding System.

The dilemma has been to provide energy for performance, without overloading with NSC and causing starch related metabolic disorders. GoStance contains multiple energy sources from oil, fibre and controlled levels of NSC (sugar and starch) to provide "fast" energy for speed, and "slow" energy for stamina and endurance.

(These feeding rates should be used as a guide only. The amount an individual horse requires will depend on the quality and quantity of available hay or pasture, the horse’s body condition and workload or required rate of growth.)

Introduce GoStance gradually over 10-14 days. Feed GoStance in conjunction with adequate, good quality hay and/or pasture (minimum of 1% body weight/day).  Always provide horses with free access to a salt lick and fresh water.
