DO NOT FEED DRY –THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS UNMOLASSED SUGAR BEET AND MUST BE SOAKED FOR 2-3 MINUTES BEFORE FEEDING.

Introduce a new feed gradually over 7 to 10 days building up to the amounts needed to maintain condition and energy levels (0.25 – 5.0kg depending on size, type, workload and condition). Place feed in a shallow bucket, add twice as much water as feed, then stir. Wait 2 to 3 minutes before feeding this product. Unmolassed chaff or soaked Fast Fibre can be added after soaking, if adding unmolassed chaff, stir well before feeding. Although Veteran Vitality is low in starch and sugar, we would not necessarily recommend it for horses prone to, or suffering from, laminitis. For more information, please contact us. Do not feed to sheep.

This feed is made from natural ingredients, so may change colour slightly through the seasons, or take longer to soak. If the feed is not soaking quickly enough, please leave to soak for longer, or soak the feed in warm water, then stir, until it forms a nice soft mash.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ: To get the best results from Veteran Vitality, please make sure that you do not feed any other products that contain barley or molasses. Many traditional feeds contain barley and / or molasses which can cause excitability in some horses. Even horses that do not become fizzy as a result of these ingredients can benefit from a low starch and sugar feed such as Veteran Vitality. *

  • ‘Just wanted to say thank you for your fabulous feeds, Charlie is my 30 year old New Forest x TB who I have owned for 15 years, he wasn’t in the best condition when we first got him but he has transformed into a shining show pony and is still winning now! Charlie has had a fantastic season so far in 2017; competing at in hand and ridden he has won five championships, two reserve championships, one reserve supreme and two Supremes. Everywhere I go I am asked “what do you feed him?” – Veteran Vitality and that’s it!’

  • “This year Bally wintered fantastically, given she is 18 years old! She is naturally very fine and tends to look scrawny coming into spring…however, not this year! Bringing her back into work felt amazing; so full of energy and bubbliness but completely rideable and containable. That ride kept me grinning all week, my golden oldie looked and felt at her best.”
    Ellie Brewer Ballyellen Bella
  • "Dennis is a very stressy pony when he is away competing, he was loosing a lot of weight, as we have my other pony on Veteran Vitality we thought we would try Dennis on it. Wow what a huge improvement it has made! It has really settled him down and makes his coat look so much better. This year Dennis won the VHS Mountain and Moorland Inhand Supreme Final! Allen & Page Feeds have helped my veterans so much, thank you!"

  • "I thought I would share this picture of my 20 year old, Domino Flashy Lad, he qualified for SSADL finals at Olympia this December for the third time. Also on the same day he qualified for RIHS Hickstead 2019 which will be his 16th appearance. Jacob has been fed on Veteran Vitality since he was 15 years old, it keeps him in perfect condition and still beating horses much younger than him."

  • "Billy in his younger years was a bit of a diva and always struggled to keep weight on with most feeds adding too much spark to an already explosive pony! After speaking to Allen & Page, they suggested Veteran Vitality, two seasons later and he has won Veteran of the Year 2017. I can say 100%, all our success is due to feeding Veteran Vitality. Billy is living proof that if you get their feed right, dreams do come true."

  • "Yoyo bless him turned 30 this year so we did decide to retire him as he wasn't coping well with the travelling to shows, however he is still doing fab and is on Veteran Vitality morning and night. Apart from a few grey hairs, the vet couldn't believe his age! So thank you!"
    Laura Smith Kinellen Yeoman
  • "I have fed Allen & Page for many years and my horses all thrive on your feed range. My veteran Crimewave II, 21 years old, absolutely loves Veteran Vitality and Calm & Condition and his coat always shines beautifully. People often ask me what products I use to make my horses coats shine and I tell them it all comes from within the Allen & Page feed, keeping Crimewave II in tip top condition all year round."
