Macrominerals - Calcium

Did you know that Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body of the horse?!


It is essential for so many functions and the horse's body tightly regulates its calcium absorption or excretion as needed, however a continuous oversupply can reduce the absorption of other minerals.


When talking about Calcium, we need to also talk about ratios of Calcium with other minerals, particularly Phosphorous, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc.


When considering the nutrition of your horse or pony, more and more of one particular mineral may not necessarily better. The overall nutritional balance is vital to maximise their health and wellbeing.
