Estimating what horse tack or horse feed is best in Maryland? For feed, assess your horse’s activity level and be reasonable in your purchase. Over feeding high energy commercial grains can make them ‘hot’ and they may gain unwanted weight. Do not feed less, but perhaps switch to a lower energy feed.
Are you a recent horse owner and need some horse tack in Maryland? Well-made tack is key. Some new riders on a budget want ‘shiny’ everything-so they get a knockoff brand online. The truth is, the leather on a knockoff bridle is treated to be "shiny" and never breaks in. The "silver" on those bridles isn't--it's going to tarnish and dull. Buy high-quality items with basic style, because they leave a lasting positive impression, even without the “bling." Do you provide sweet horse feed to your horse in Maryland? Sweet feeds are very palatable to horses, but this taste preference doesn’t equate to optimal nutrition. Manufacturers sweeten these feeds using 5-7% molasses, and they are typically grain-based–containing oats, corn, or barley. Problems can develop when easy keepers or horses not involved in regular exercise consume too much, leading to obesity and metabolic problems.
