TopSpec Lite is designed for horses and ponies that need their weight controlled; they are usually good-doers and may be overweight. These are the horses and ponies for whom every single calorie counts, and we do not believe you will find a lower calorie feed balancer anywhere.

Lite is a ‘Non-Heating,’ cereal-grain-free, formula; with low levels of starch and sugar, and a considered level of protein to help maintain muscle function but avoid promoting topline.

It is very important that this group of horses and ponies receive their full requirement of vitamins and minerals. TopSpec Lite allows them to receive all the micronutrients required to balance the diet of horses in light work in a small amount of exceptionally low-calorie feed.

TopSpec Lite will help maintain excellent health whilst improving hoof quality and promoting a supple skin and an exceptionally shiny coat.

Long-term trials have shown that horses and ponies on restricted/poor grazing do not gain any additional weight when fed TopSpec Lite. It can also be used very successfully as part of a calorie-controlled diet when weight loss is required.

TopSpec Lite is suitable for horses and ponies prone to, and recovering from, laminitis. It may also be safely fed to horses and ponies being treated for laminitis; however our nutritionists recommend TopSpec AntiLam is fed in these circumstances to provide extra nutritional support.

TopSpec Lite Feed Balancer contains the following features: -

•An expertly-balanced broad-spectrum supplement, vital for horses and ponies on a restricted diet.

• A hoof improvement supplement. Includes the scientifically proven level of Biotin, (15mg/500kg horse/day), which in association with the methionine, cysteine, calcium, zinc, copper, iodine and Vitamin A present, will greatly improve the quality of new hoof growth. Chelated sources of copper and zinc are included in the formulation.

• Generous levels of antioxidants including Vitamins A, C and E plus selenium.

• Considered levels of a pure, protected yeast are included to help maintain a healthy hindgut environment, important for horses and ponies on restricted/ poor grazing.

• ‘Non-heating,’ because it is very low in sugar/starch and high in fibre.

TopSpec Lite Feed Balancer is available in 20kg sacks, which last a 500kg horse for 40 days or a 250kg pony for 80 days.

New TopChop Lite is an unadulterated, natural product made from alfalfa, oat straw, a light dressing of soya oil and real mint. It is ideal for good-doers that need their weight controlling.

TopChop Lite Features:

  • Made from high temperature dried British alfalfa and high quality chopped oat straw with added real mint to improve palatability. Very lightly dressed with soya oil so that alfalfa leaves can be included in the chop.

  • Contains no molasses or any other sugar coating.

  • Exceptionally low in sugar and starch (including fructans).

  • Non-Heating.

  • The alfalfa provides a natural source of anti-oxidants.

  • Dust-extracted.

  • Contains no preservatives or artificial additives or colourings.

  • Non-GM formula.

TopChop Lite is ideal for:

TopChop Lite is of similar nutritional value to average quality hay but contains less sugar. The composition and consistency of this product make it ideal for horses and ponies prone to, being treated for, and recovering from laminitis. However it is suitable for all horses and ponies and perfect for good-doers and others prone to weight gain.

The formula for TopChop Lite was tested and developed at the Middle Park Equine Research Unit and has been approved by the nutritional team for use in all horses. However they recommend that horses and ponies needing to gain weight, and all breeding stock, would gain greater benefit from TopChop Alfalfa.

In combination TopChop Lite and TopSpec AntiLam make an ideal complete feed for horses and ponies prone to, being treated for or recovering from laminitis. For example we would recommend that an over weight 12hh pony on box-rest should receive one 1kg of TopChop Lite plus 125gms of TopSpec AntiLam twice a day in addition to 2kg (1 flap) of late-cut meadow hay that has been soaked in fresh, clean water, for about 12 hours before feeding.
