Dengie Alfa-Beet is a low sugar conditioning feed for horses and ponies. A blend of alfalfa and sugar beet, Alfa-Beet is ideal for extra condition or energy for work, for fizzy horses and ponies as well as older horses who are having difficulties chewing.
The combination of alfalfa and unmolassed sugar beet pulp provides 'slow releasing' energy in the form of highly digestible fibre. Alfa-Beet is therefore ideal for weight gain without over-exuberance.
Alfa-Beet is ideal for older horses and ponies, where the provision of good quality protein is important and where maintaining condition is often a struggle. Dental problems? - no problem! Alfa-Beet is soaked to produce an easily digestible mash.
Alfalfa is naturally low in sugar (water soluble carbohydrates) and Alfa-Beet contains only a quarter of the water-soluble carbohydrates found in conventional molassed sugar beet. Fed with Dengie Hi-Fi Lite, Alfa-Beet is ideal for those horses and ponies, which require a lower sugar diet. Alfa-Beet is a suitable feed for the healthy maintenance of horses and ponies prone to laminitis and is approved by the Laminitis Trust.
Short Soak Time - Hot Soak in 15 mins!
Alfa-Beet is easy to use as it soaks to a mash much more quickly than conventional sugar beet pellets. For soaking, we recommend three parts water to one part Alfa-Beet.
One large Stubbs scoop of dry Alfa Beet pellets = 1.6Kg
One large Stubbs scoop of soaked Alfa-Beet holds 0.5kg of dry matter if soaked at a 3 parts water to 1 par Alfa-Beet ratio.

Since the National Lockdown starting 5th January, we are seeing high demand. Whilst we are managing to dispatch the vast majority of orders on time (same day dispatch for orders placed before 2pm), some orders may be dispatched a day or two later if there is a spike in demand.
To date, our couriers are coping well. DPD are still delivering the vast majority of parcels next-working-day after dispatch.
Delivery estimates are shown at the checkout. Please treat these as an estimate, not a guarantee
We aim to dispatch all orders received before 2pm the same working day (with the exception of some items that clearly show a delayed dispatch notice on the product image).
The order may also be delivered to your place of work or left in a safe place at the chosen delivery address (safe place does not require a signature but is left at the customers own risk). Please be aware all DPD orders require a signature (or a photograph during COVID-19 social distancing) upon delivery, unless requested otherwise. Delivery charges are calculated on the delivery weight that we assign to a product. This may differ from the actual weight of the product, for example, in instances where the bulky nature of the product means increased postage costs apply. If there is no one in to sign for the delivery and a safe place has not been selected a card will be left and an automatic re-delivery will be attempted the next working day. If for a second time the delivery has not been signed for a second card will be left detailing how to re-arrange delivery. If no attempt is made to re-arrange delivery, the order will returned to us. If the order is returned to us after the second card attempt we will incur a charge which may be passed on to the customer.
