What is it?
Horslyx Mobility Balancer can be used to help maintain healthy joints in all horses, of all ages and breeds, whether for a performance horse that requires support for hard working joints, or as an aid for older horses that may have suffered from wear and tear over the years.
Independent research was conducted at the University of Central Lancashire using 6 Thoroughbred horses based at the Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre. This independent university research clearly demonstrated that Mobility Balancer can help reduce joint stiffness in otherwise clinically sound horses and when used regularly will help maintain healthy supple joints and allow mobility and flexibility for comfortable movement. Details on the research can be found here.
As with all Horslyx Balancers, Mobility Balancer is extremely low in starch, making it suitable for horses which can react unfavourably to traditional cereal based diets.
Why should I feed Horslyx Mobility Balancer?
- To help performance horses that may be prone to stiffness before, during and/or after exercise.
- For competition horses that require support for hard working joints.
- As an aid for older horses that may have suffered from wear and tear over the years.
- To help maintain healthy joints in all active horses, of all ages and breeds.
- For horses that are stabled for long periods of time, Mobility Balancer may help lessen the chance of stiffness from lack of movement.
- To balance any nutrient deficiencies in forage and grazing – helping to ensure your horse stays healthy and happy all year round.
- When fed alongside the correct amounts of good quality forage, Mobility Balancer removes the need for buckets of hard feed and is cost effective and so will save you money.
- Licking takes time and patience, which is perfect for horses that are stabled for long periods of time and can help reduce stress and boredom.
- Licking enhances saliva production, which helps support the digestive system.
Glucosamine HCl: Glucosamine HCl is a glycoprotein present in joints and is an essential, natural component of ligaments, tendons, cartilage and synovial fluid, the liquid shock absorber which lubricates and cushions the joints during movement.
MSM: Methyl sulphonyl methane, is a readily available source of organic sulphur, a key component of connective tissue, which is important for cartilage and joint support. MSM works in synchrony with glucosamine to help contribute to the overall health of connective tissue and maintain overall joint health, including mobility, flexibility and range of motion for comfortable movement. MSM also possesses antioxidant properties.
Omega-3 Oils: Omega-3 Oils are essential fatty acids, which cannot be manufactured by the body and therefore must be obtained from the diet, play a useful role in supporting the immune system and healthy joint function. The Omega-3 oils in Horslyx Mobility Balancer are from Linseed Oil. A horse’s natural diet can be low in Omega-3 so horses often need an additional source to provide these essential fatty acids for optimum health.
Antioxidants: A combination of powerful antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E, Selenium, chelated Copper and Zinc are included to support and maintain a healthy immune system, which maximises the ability to support and aid healthy joint function.
Horslyx Balancers Horslyx Balancers were first manufactured in 1997 at our plant, based at Silloth in Cumbria. The debut product in the equestrian range was Original Horslyx and after initial success Respiratory, Garlic and Mobility Horslyx were introduced. In 2005 a bespoke extension was added enabling Mini Horslyx to be manufactured and today you can purchase Horslyx in packs ranging from 650g up to 80kg. Recently Mint and Pro Digest formulations have been added to the range in size 650g, 5kg and 15kg.
Horslyx Balancers have been carefully formulated to balance the deficiencies in forage and grazing. This is a unique and innovative approach to ensuring that the modern horse receives an ideal supply of vitamins, minerals and trace elements to support optimum health and vitality.
A Balancer in a Lick?
Balancers are available in varying formats, from the lick of a Horslyx to the more common pelleted versions. They all have in common the fact that they are concentrated feeds; rich in vitamins, minerals and high quality protein containing essential amino acids, low in energy and are designed to balance the diet. This means that balancers can be fed in small amounts giving a horse all of their daily vitamins and mineral requirements without the extra calories. This method of feeding has much more in common with how horses evolved to eat, providing a trickle feed supply of nutrients, so helping to keep your horse healthier and happier.
Horslyx Balancers have been created to provide the goodness required for horses to remain in peak health.
The horse evolved to eat little and often over the day, with the main part of the diet being forage. However, today’s forage is a far cry from that which our equine’s ancestors would have roamed on and grazed in history. While times may have changed, our horse’s digestive system hasn’t, and we need to take this into consideration when planning a feeding regime, ideally keeping the principles of a diet based mainly on forage with a trickle feed supply of nutrients provided to balance the diet to keep our equines healthy. For this reason, Horslyx Balancers have been created to provide the goodness required for horses to remain in peak health.
