Which Balancer For My Horse?

The Blue Chip Super Concentrated Balancers: Which Balancer Is For Your Horse?

The Blue Chip Super Concentrated Balancers are 100% natural, whole cereal and molasses-free, and their highly nutrient dense formulas have been specifically developed to maintain optimum health in horses and ponies by combining carefully selected levels of vitamins and minerals with a probiotic digestive supplement and Nucleotides to aid nutrient absorption, promoting health and well-being from the inside out. Each balancer has been enhanced with specific ingredients to suit all horses and ponies, with the Calming Balancer featuring magnesium and L-tryptophan to reduce stress and anxiety, Senior Balancer containing Chaste Tree Berry extract for correct pituitary function in veterans, ULSA-Cool incorporates a slow-release acid buffering agent to improve digestive comfort and Daily Health contains specifically tailored levels of key minerals and vitamins to ensure optimum health on a daily basis.

Stressed? Anxious? Worried?

The Blue Chip Super Concentrated Calming Balancer is the choice for you! It combines all the high quality ingredients of the Blue Chip Feed Balancers
with magnesium, L-tryptophan and chamomile which have proven calming effects on horses and ponies. The primary reason for combining a calmer and a feed balancer is that stress and digestion have a symbiotic relationship; stress can cause digestive issues, and digestive issues can cause stress. The probiotics in the balancer restore the natural balance of the gut flora and help to maintain the natural well-being of the digestive system, allowing optimum utilisation of the carefully formulated combination of vitamins, minerals and nutrients present in all the Blue Chip Balancers

Chloe Hardy got in touch to tell us about her pony Scotty, who is like another horse after being fed the Super Concentrated Calming Balancer…

“At the start of this year I began having problems with Scotty as he was getting too worked up when we were hacking and jumping. He had the winter off so I just presumed that it was a result of him coming back into work and it would blow over, but then even months after I was still having problems. He would gallop into fences and I had no control, and out hacking I would ask him to do simple tasks such as standing still and he would get stressed and start getting very agitated for no reason.

When I started taking him to shows, he would still just gallop and as he’s got a huge, scopey jump, it became dangerous as sometimes he would leap from miles away and leave a leg. He’s also very quirky, so trying to change his way of going is a difficult task and often it makes him quite stressed out. People had recommended calmers to me, but they either didn’t work or cost an arm and a leg and even though I wanted something that worked, I also had to think realistically. That’s when I saw the Blue Chip Concentrated Calming Balancer and it appealed to me as Scotty is always fed on a balancer so the fact it was both a calmer and balancer in one really made it worth the money.

It only took two weeks to see the results. Scotty became nice and calm when jumping and didn’t get stressed out when trying different exercises like he normally would. I lost a lot of confidence with him, but now I feel like I have really got somewhere. He has only jumped two BSJA shows but both times he has jumped double clear and remained chilled throughout!

Also, he usually takes a whole tube of sedative gel to clip his head off as he really hates it. I am amazed though that for the past two times I have clipped him, he’s stood without even a head collar on and let me fully clip his head!

I always get asked what I feed him and what do I give him to keep him chilled. I couldn’t recommend Blue Chip enough. It has changed him completely, for the better.”

Golden Oldie?

The Blue Chip Super Concentrated Senior Balancer is an ideal way of ensuring any horse or pony over 14 years old receives the correct levels of vitamins, minerals and nutrients in their daily diet, along with additional supplements to ease the ageing process. The Super Concentrated Senior Balancer includes CushinCombo, a combination of Chaste Tree Berry (vitex agnus-castus), antioxidants and omega oils, and also a full joint supplement, containing Rosa canina which is known to support and maintain joints, keeping your horse or pony active in later life. In order to maintain digestive health, the inclusion of a probiotic helps to ensure gut efficiency to keep your veteran happy and healthy. The super concentrated formula is very nutrient dense, allowing it to be fed in smaller amounts, proving beneficial to veterans, as appetite has been found to decrease with age. It can even be fed as part of a tasty mash or as a treat from the hand for your golden oldie, perfect for keeping them mobile and healthy into old age!

Behavioural Changes? Stressed? Poor Digestive Efficiency?

Super Concentrated ULSA-COOL Balancer has been specifically formulated to assist with the maintenance of acid balance in the gut. The 100% natural, whole-cereal, molasses free formula incorporates AcidBalTM, an acid buffering agent comprised of Lithothamnion, which is derived from marine minerals and can help to alter gut pH balance by slowly releasing calcium, magnesium and silicon, over a prolonged period to enhance the buffering effect it has on harmful stomach acids. Also included is mint, which has been used for centuries to aid digestion, and Beta-Glucans, natural polysaccharides that support the immune response and coat the lining of the stomach with a protective lining whilst slowing the passage of feed to keep the stomach fuller for longer. Creating a healthier gut environment means that your horse or pony will become more digestively efficient and as a result, gain condition and start to thrive again, allowing them feel more like their old selves. A healthy horse is a happy horse and thanks to the ULSA-Cool Balancer, this is now much easier to achieve!

Low Maintenance? Good Doer?

The Blue Chip Super Concentrated Daily Health Balancer is designed to maintain optimal health in all horses and ponies and combines carefully formulated levels of essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients, alongside a digestive supplement that includes both a probiotic and Nucleotides which aid nutrient absorption, recovery rates and immune response. Also included is a biotin, methionine and lysine based hoof supplement called SoundHoof, to encourage strong, pliable horn growth as well as Primovento, which contains menthol and eucalyptus to sooth the airways and ensure lung vitality.

Daily Health is perfect for the good doer as it is low in sugar and starch due to its molasses free formula and can be fed straight from the hand or as part of a meal alongside a low calorie chaff – perfect for those horses and ponies watching their waistline!
