- Formulated to match the special nutritional needs of endurance and event horses.
- Increased levels of highly digestible fiber. Digestible fiber provides a stable and continuous source of energy and can moderate the fluid and electrolyte balance in endurance horses.
- Contains high levels of highly digestible soybean oil. Adding fat to the diet increases the energy density of the ration without increasing starch levels.
- Contains yeast culture to promote improved hind gut fermentation and improve nutrient digestibility.
- Contains increased levels of antioxidants (Vitamin E and Selenium) to support muscle function during strenuous activity.
- Ingredients in F-R-M Paradigm Endurance Gold have been selected to meet the protein and amino acid requirements of the endurance horse without contributing excessive protein that can be detrimental to the performance of endurance horses.

- Feed F-R-M Paradigm Endurance Gold with good quality hay
- Amount of F-R-M Paradigm Endurance Gold will fed will vary with the work intensity of the horse. Vary the daily intake to match the level of activity for each day. Feed a minimum of 4 pounds per day (for a 1000 pound horse) during light training and up to 12 pounds per day during maximal training (0.4% to 1.2% of body weight).
- During periods of high heat and humidity, electrolytes may be added to this feed to replace extra electrolytes lost in sweat.
- Provide fresh clean water free-choice, except immediately following heavy exercise when the horse is hot.
- Adjust feed intake to maintain desired weight and body condition. Level of intake will vary depending on season, age of horse, type of forage in the diet, level of activity and the general condition of the horse.
- Feed by weight, not volume.
- Do not feed more than 5 pounds of grain in a single feeding. If feeding more than five pounds of grain, split into 2 or 3 equal feedings.
- Make all feed changes over a 10 – 21 day period, gradually increasing the new feed while decreasing the current feed by equal amounts.
- If you acquire a horse whose diet is unknown, feed them hay and reduce the feed ration to a third or half of what you would normally feed that type horse; then, gradually increase over a period of 2 – 3 weeks.
- Never feed any feedstuffs that are moldy, musty or suspect in any way as it may cause illness or death.
WARNING: Products containing added copper should not be fed to sheep or related species that have a low tolerance level to copper.
