In addition to a broad-spectrum of vitamins and minerals a full range of B vitamins are included in Performance Vits & Mins. B vitamins are included as they are involved in energy utilisation and other metabolic functions that affect performance and so are vital for working horses and ponies.

Antioxidants defend the body against free radicals which are produced during normal metabolic processes. Exercise increases the amount of free radicals produced and so antioxidant nutrients are very important for working horses.
