Nutrena® ProForce®– the feed that helps horses recover

ProForce feeds are chock full of nutrients and cutting-edge technology for all types of horses, to help them recover and keep them healthy and happy for years to come.

As all competitive equestrians know, equine athletes need more than just “food”. They require a nutritionally balanced diet that helps them thrive in and out of the show ring. Enter Nutrena ProForce – the one-of-a-kind product that’s gained a reputation as the feed that helps horses recover. Once known by equine enthusiasts in the Northeast as “the black bag”, this feed became so popular after its release in 2013 that the line was expanded and launched nationally. Since then, it’s become a global favorite among those who compete with their horses and those that don’t.

Uniquely designed for recovery

There’s a reason both professionals and sponsored riders are such big fans of ProForce®. “Winners align themselves with winners, and they know choosing high quality nutrition is one of the biggest ways to give their horses a leg up in the arena,” says Russell Mueller, Strategic Marketing Manager, Equine. “We wanted to build upon that notion and take it a step further by offering a product that helps horses recover after strenuous activity.” To accomplish this, the team at Nutrena integrates a number of unique features into the ProForce line:

  • Topline Balance™ ration balancer offers a unique blend of the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your horse needs to look and feel his best, including unique support for better topline health.
  • Nutri-Bloom Advantage® improves overall fiber digestion by up to 15% for better health and bloom.
  • Marine-sourced calcite supports gastric health and helps maintain normal stomach pH.
  • Empower® Boost is a special blend of fat and select nutrients that helps horses – even the hard keepers – consistently deliver a strong performance.

Perhaps the most innovative aspect of ProForce is the addition of Rebound Technology™. This proprietary blend of research-backed chromium and branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) supports glucose moving to the cells where it’s needed for energy to repair and replenish after work. “Like their human athlete counterparts, a solid nutrition plan is the fuel that allows performance horses to compete and perform at their highest level,” says Russell. “With Rebound Technology™, recovery isn’t an afterthought; the horse is always being fed for optimal performance.”

Benefits to all

The ProForce line contains a number of different products all with specific benefits for different horses. ProForce Fuel is a high fat and controlled starch feed designed for equine athletes and hard keepers. It is ideal for horses competing in the show ring, but also a great feed to help put weight on. ProForce Senior is a similar feed targeted at the needs of active older horses, and ProForce Fuel XF is a beet pulp and oat-based version that’s similar to Fuel but with higher fiber levels.

According to Russell, horses that would benefit the most from these feeds are the equine athletes that continually compete. But don’t let that scare you away if you aren’t regularly competing with your horses. ProForce feeds are chock full of nutrients and cutting-edge technology for all types of horses, to keep them healthy and happy for years to come.
