Sainfoin is a premium forage alternative to lucerne and grass. ‘Sainfoin’ means 'Healthy Hay’ in French and this is exactly what it is! Sainfoin Pellets are also non-bloating.

Our Sainfoin Pellets are rich in natural minerals and trace elements. They are a good source of condensed tannins, which aid digestion of protein. Sainfoin is also a source of naturally occurring copper, which can aid the health of bones, tendons and joints.

Sainfoin is suitable for all horses, and can be very beneficial when fed with hay and grass as a nutritious alternative and to add a variety of flavour. Sainfoin is particularly suitable for horses requiring a nutritious diet, including:

  • Pregnant mares
  • Foals and young growing horses
  • Older horses
  • Competition horses
  • Horses in recovery

Simple System Sainfoin Pellets are 100% pure and free from binders.

Feeding Instructions

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

Sainfoin Pellets are ideally fed soaked. If appropriate, feed singly as treats or mixed with twice their volume of soaked PuraBeet or twice their volume of chop and well dampened. Use as part of the forage ration or in addition.

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.

Feed according to requirement & condition.


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

Blends & Balancer Measure holds = 0.5kg (dry weight) approximately
