Charlie is a much loved 19 year old Shetland pony who I have owned for 12 years. He competes in horse driving trials and really loves his job. Being small a whole 38 inches he has to work hard to cover the mileage required. Normal cereal feed could make him very fresh and sometimes unpredictable. I have feed simple systems for the last three seasons, and it has kept him in top condition without making him too sharp. He has also maintained a good top line, and an excellent coat. I am sure it is to do with the quality of the feed and the fact that no molasses are added to the products that I use. He looks great and feels great and I have complete confidence in the simple systems product. I would recommend it to anyone that owns a small pony that is required to work hard. I would not go back to another feed brand.
