Polo Horse Feeding – Part 1
A polo horse requires two kinds of food: hay and grains. These must be given to the horse in the proper amounts.
If you feed your horse too much, it might result in an overweight, sick, or crippled horse. On the other hand, if you feed it too little, it might reduce its stamina and resistance to diseases. The best and most natural source of food for a horse is good pasture grass and dry hay.
The ratio and amount of feed should be checked by a veterinarian. It is also recommended to divide the daily ration into two feeds, one in the morning and another one in the evening; or even more since the digestive tract of a horse works better with smaller amounts of food.
Water should be available to the horse at all times if possible, mainly before and after feeding.
