When choosing between the alfalfa and the grass formulas, if your horse is being fed 8 lbs. of alfalfa or more per day, you want to order the Equine Challenge™ Vitamins & Minerals for alfalfa fed horses. Horses fed less than 8 lbs. of alfalfa per day will need Equine Challenge™ Vitamins & Minerals for grass/oat hay fed horses. If you feed a hay mix, If the mix is more than 50% alfalfa, feed Equine Challenge™ Vitamins & Minerals for alfalfa fed horses.

The recommended dosage of Equine Challenge™ is 2 – 4 oz. daily depending upon the activity level of your horse. For non-performance horses, we recommend 2 oz. per day. For performance horses, horses in training, or pregnant and lactating mares, we recommend 4 oz. per day. For horses previously not on any supplement regimen, we recommend an initial dose of 4 oz. daily for 3 to 4 weeks, adjusting dosage thereafter in accordance with your horse’s activity per standard dosage recommendations. Dosage is based on the average 1,000 pound sized horse. Usage rate can be reduced proportionately, based on weight, for lighter breeds, weanlings, yearlings, ponies, etc., or increased proportionately for the larger breeds.
When feeding Equine Challenge™ , feed no more than 2 oz. at any one feeding with a maximum dosage of 4 oz per day. We recommend splitting Equine Challenge™ doses into a.m. and p.m. feeding times.
If your horse is taking 4 oz. of Equine Challenge™ per day, in order to ensure stable blood levels, it is recommended you feed 2 oz. in the a.m. and 2 oz. in the p.m.
