Feeding Instructions

As with any new feed, introduce gradually over a week.
Blue Bag Grass Pellets are ideally fed soaked.
Alternatively, mix with soaked PuraBeet or a Simple System chop
and dampen well.
For foals, greedy, elderly or dentally challenged horses, Blue Bag Grass Pellets should be soaked.
Use 2.5 times their volume of water.

Feed according to requirement & condition.
Start with 100g per 100kg of bodyweight per day, increase as required up to a maximum of 5kg per day. For example, for a 500kg horse start with 500g per day (dry weight, before soaking) and increase as required.


A level Stubbs bowl scoop = 1.5kg (dry weight) approximately

Over the past 10 months he has discovered the joy of life - hacking politely, show-jumping, x-country and dressage. And eating! He's lost loads of weight and is a completely different shape (4 saddle-fits!).

Pulpits Farm have been loyal customers of Simple System for over 20 years.

We have been thoroughly pleased with the products & service offered to us over the years  and have found Simple System Horse Feeds to be perfect for the wide range of different breeds we have here; including Arabs, Thoroughbreds, Highlands and other Native breeds (many of whom live out 24/7).

Gill Robinson, Essex

I’m proud to say that Simple System have been part of our team for over 20 years, in our quest to provide our horses with the most natural life we can.

Jasper and Sweep were no doubt, the beginning of our natural journey, bare foot, no rugs, bitless, freedom of movement and making our own hay. Over the years Simple System has always been there when we needed feeding advice for individual horses and also helping us to manage our land with Natural Grazing Mix and Equine Calcified Plus (now Natural Paddock Recovery).

Mrs Lindsey Bootes

I called Simple System Horse Feeds at the beginning of the season for some advice on a flagging pony. It didn’t seem to matter how fit Quinn was; he would lose his spice after one class or one phase.

They advised to Target Feed, so now he gets an energy boost right before each phase. What a difference it has made!

I wouldn’t be shy about calling them again in the future for any further feeding advice!

Miss Clare Pascoe

Since feeding Simple System Horse Feeds I have not struggled to keep Ami looking and feeling good throughout the winter, without her getting too spicy or sensitive. I now won't feed anything else!

Ami is fed Lucie Nuts, Blue Bag Grass Pellets and Build & Shine.

Ms Rachael Smith

Billy was struggling to hold weight and lacked shine in his coat, I was feeding supplements to boost his coat and skin condition. I switched to Simple System in March 2023, ever since he has been more settled, holding weight and his coat looks amazing. No supplements needed.

Miss Keana Marsh

It took us over two years to find a feed that didn’t upset his gut health and allowed him to maintain and increase weight all year round.

Winter hydration for horses

When the weather turns cold, horses are less inclined to drink. Coupled with sudden changes in management, such as more time spent stabled or eating more hay, this can increase the risk of impaction colic.
