Ask Sharon

Caring for and Choosing Your Horse

Barbara from Alberta, Canada, writes:

Dear Sharon,

You recently held a clinic just outside of Claresholm, Alberta. You mentioned a type of feed that helped keep weight on a horse without making the horse hot. Was it rice bran?

Dear Barbara,

Yes, rice bran is an excellent source of fat and helps result in great coat condition and reserve energy without making a horse high or anxious. Feed approximately 1-1/2 quarts daily for 30 days, and then cut back to 1 quart daily, depending on your horse’s needs. We look forward to our return trip to Claresholm next year.

Thank you for your question,
