HYGAIN® POWATORQUE® combines the advantages and convenience of a premixed feed with conventional home mixing ensuring that all micro nutrients are met in a 2kg dose whilst providing the flexibility to manage cereal grain intake. POWATORQUE® is suitable for performance horses in pre-training, training and competition and has been formulated to be fed in conjunction with cereal grains such as oats, HYGAIN® MICRBARLEY® and/or HYGAIN® MICRMAIZE®.
HYGAIN® POWATORQUE® should be introduced to your horse’s diet gradually. Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, exercise intensity, desired body condition and climate.
Horses in training and receiving regular exercise on average will require 2kg of HYGAIN® POWATORQUE® together with 4-7kg of grain and a minimum of 1% of body weight as fibre such as quality hay and/or chaff. Care should be taken to match feed intake to workload. Reduce feed intake on rest days. If horses gain weight and/or training regime is interrupted reduce the amount of cereal grain in the diet and continue feeding HYGAIN® POWATORQUE® at the desired level.
During periods of heavy sweat loss additional supplementation with an electrolyte such as HYGAIN® REGAIN® is recommended.

Natural Vitamin E
This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory and neuromuscular functions.
Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.
Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® POWATORQUE® have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.
The addition of chromium to performance horse diets has been shown to reduce the build up of lactic acid at the end of strenuous exercise or the closing stages of a race, and to increase the horse’s ability to store glucose.
Probiotics are good bacteria that stimulate the activity of other good bacteria in the horse’s digestive tract. The addition of probiotics (live yeast) to equine diets improves fibre, phosphorus and calcium digestibility and increases gross energy, total lipid and amino acid absorption.
RBO® Equine Performance Oil is a blend of rice bran oil, omega essential 3,6 & 9 fatty acids and natural anti-oxidants known to improve the health and structural integrity of cell membranes. RBO® oil plays an important role in maximising energy efficiency due to its energy dense nature and is digested efficiently in the small intestine reducing the ‘sugar high’ associated with high grain diets. RBO® promotes growth and development of the muscular system, top line and a healthy skin and coat.
Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers and veterinarians.
