In Missouri, are you unsure about how to size a certain piece of horse tack or horse equipment? You can deepen your knowledge by reaching out to trainers, searching on-line, or contacting tack manufacturers. These can help you pinpoint exactly the tack that you’re looking for. Does your horse feed program include concentrates in Missouri? Here are a few basic rules when feeding concentrates. Feed no more than about five pounds of pellets or sweet feed at one time. Feed by weight, not by volume. A scoop or coffee can hold a greater weight of pellets than of sweet feed, so the horse getting “three scoops” of feed may be getting more or less than the optimum amount. Check feeding guidelines on the feed bag and use a scale to figure the right amount. As much as possible, feed on the same schedule every day.
