1.    In general, aim to feed 2% of your horse's ideal body weight in pounds per day.

2.    If more calories are necessary, use a fat-based feed rather than sugar or protein-based supplements.

3.    You should be able to feel your horse's ribs easily, but you shouldn't be able to see them.

4.    You should provide access to a salt/mineral block.

5.    Horses should be fed at ground level, but not directly on the dirt.
