Providing all the goodness of spring grass and an overall energy level more than 10% greater than oats, they are the feed of choice for high performance horses, racing, eventing, jumping or breeding high value foals early in the year. The energy is released a little more steadily than that from cereals, so horses should settle more quickly to their work and have more stamina. 100% pure and free from all binders.

Feeding Instructions

As with any new feed, introduce gradually over a week.
Red 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,
Red 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

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

We are very keen to promote natural feeding of our native Highlands as they are not built to cope with rich higher sugar diets that you see in many other feeds. We also needed a straightforward and economical diet that could be used for our mares, stallions, foals and youngstock that would promote muscle development and bone growth without adding excess fat or fizz. With Simple System we have found exactly that.
