SHAPE-UP™ Balancer is a low starch, high fibre mix designed to provide a balanced diet at low intake levels, and to help maintain a normal, healthy metabolism. It can be used as a calorie controlled ration for those prone to laminitis, Equine Metabolic Syndrome or Cushing's in order to meet micronutrient requirements without excess sugar, calories and starch intake.
SHAPE-UP™ Balancer is formulated to provide a balanced ration for those horse & ponies on a restricted diet. It includes a hoof package to provide key nutrients required to maintain optimum hoof quality. A range of micronutrients are essential to support optimum hoof growth and quality. Shape Up Balancer contains Calcium, chelated Zinc and Copper, essential amino acids Lysine and Methionine and the recommended amount of Biotin (3mg / 100 Kg BW).
SHAPE-UP™ Balancer is the result of nearly two years of research and development and incorporates some of the most recent and up to date nutritional innovations for horses and ponies that require a low starch and low calorie feed.
The ration is based on Saracen Horse Feeds' "Super-fibre" technology, meaning that energy is dervied from slow-release, fibre sources that produce a minimal glycemic response post feeding. The high fibre content of SHAPE-UP™ Balancer and the inclusion of an original neutralizing ingredient also help to maintain a healthy digestive system.
WHY IS SHAPE-UP™ UNIQUE?
Saracen SHAPE-UP Balancer is one of a kind as it "works" in both the stomach and the hindgut:
In the stomach it helps to support optimal acidity levels in horses on a restricted diet.
In the hindgut it helps to maintain a normal pH to ensure the health of the bacterial population in the large intestine.
Saracen SHAPE-UP Balancer contains high levels of essential antioxidants, including cinnamon and vitamin E, which are known for their benefits in helping to promote cellular defences, health and wellbeing. A specific healthy hoof package containing research-recommended levels of biotin, chelated minerals (inc Zinc), essential amino acids (Lysine and Methionine) and quality protein sources are also included, to encourage hoof quality, growth and development.
Saracen SHAPE-UP Balancer should be fed at the recommended feeding levels, and also in conjunction with a suitable forage source. Saracen can supply you with a specific SHAPE-UP measuring cup, contact us today.
For effective weight loss and weight management, hay should be analysed for its non-structural carbohydrate (NSC) content and ideally should contain less than 10-12% NSC. Providing that your horse is sound, every effort should be made to implement a sensible and regular exercise regime.

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 orders require a signature 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.
