Sport Horse Mix

A natural sport horse supplement with Ginseng, Spirulina and amino acids

A muscle building formulation for active horses. It contains amino acids which form the basic building blocks for muscle building, MSM for joint support, and vitamins, Spirulina and Ginseng for an energy boost.

A natural sport horse supplement with Spirulina - Sport Horse Mix

 Sport Horse Mix contains:

  • Spirulina
    Spirulina is a blue green algae. It is a source of amino acids, proteins, fats, vitamins and co-factors.
  • Siberian Ginseng
    Known as an adaptogen, is widely used in sports supplements for human athletes.
  • MSM
    MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) helps maintain healthy joints and supports recovery from exercise.
  • Lysine
    L-Lysine is the ‘rate-limiting’ essential amino acid. This means it is more likely than any other amino acid to interrupt protein synthesis and thus stop muscle development.
  • Methionine
    Methionine is the most important amino acid for healthy hoof growth.
  • Threonine
    Like Lysine, Threonine is a protein synthesis rate-limiting essential amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks the body uses to make proteins.
  • Zinc
    Zinc is an essential mineral for healthy hoof growth.
  • Selenium
    Selenium is an antioxidant mineral.
  • Seaweed meal
    Dried seaweed meal is a source of many vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
  • Brewer’s Yeast
    Brewer’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is a yeast and is the source of various vitamins and minerals.
  • Full fat soya
    Soya is a high protein, high fat feedstuff.

Analytical constituents:

  • Crude Protein (33%)
  • Crude Fibre (0.24%)
  • Crude Ash (12%)
  • Crude Oils and Fats (3.16%)
  • Moisture Content (10.33%)
  • L-Lysine (10 000 mg/kg)
  • L-Threonine (2000 mg/kg)
  • Sulphur (1.57%),


One scoop (15g) per day. One 500g bag will last one horse four weeks.

    Gem was an early convert to Herbal horse. We went barefoot with our TB mare and used a combination of farrier mix, calm mix for her occassional ‘Chestnut mare’ syndrome and sport horse mix to look after her joints when competing. She is now a sprightly 22 year old and gets lightly worked but still has all her character and still wants to gallop. And most importantly keeps a smile on my daughters face.

    I used the farrier mix for my TB chestnut mare when we went bare foot. It helped a lot during the transition phase and kept her feet looking good all year round. I also used the sport horse mix when we were competing. Loved it 😍

    Hi there

    I have a 14 year old Warmblood that has Shivers. Lately he has dropped muscle tone (as the disease progresses) and becoming stiff in his hind quarters. I have changed his food to Spurwing Show horse (no carbs). What supplements do you suggest that will assist him with his condition?

      Hi Inge

      Sorry to hear that. The best you can do in terms of supplements is Vitamin E. Either find an equine version (unfortunately we don’t have) or get the human Vitamin E capsules from apharmacy or health shop. He will need about 2000 IU per day in his food. Best of luck!

    Dear Beryl,
    I was trying to do dressage on my big, scary TB when Paddy lead a charge of the herd(2 donkeys and a mule) at a flat out gallop across the arena. When I had everyone calmed down I said to Oupa – what is the matter with your @#$%^& horse?
    He just smiled sweetly and replied I think it`s that powder.
    Pads is looking gorgeous ,working well and will go to a show next month if there is one close by.
    Thanks for the powder.

    I have a very very laid back selle Francais, he is fit as a fiddle but really just can’t be bothered! Is this something that could help? Back checked, teeth checked everything checked!!
    He is currently on comp mix concentrate would you feed alongside?

      Laura, we have had success with this product in horses like this. Just a scoop per day, mixed into his feed. Either this product or the Endurance mix….

    I have a thoroughbred mare, which is extreamly hot, I want to give her something to help build muscle, she really doesn’t need more energy. We play polocrosse and she never shows shes tired when im on her back she only stops when i get off her. she never quites on me. so i want to help build more muscle is there something that can help that you dont have to give forever. i want something that can only help kickstart muscle building. can anyone help?

      Hi Louise

      Thanks for your query. If your horse is hot, I wouldn’t give her Sport Horse mix, because that does give energy as well. I rather suggest Ultimate mix, which contains the amino acids necessary for muscle building, but doesn’t have any Ginseng, which is energising. Then, as a plus, it also contains pre and probiotics and msm and glucosamine for joint health. (And it is never too early to start looking after your horse’s joints.

    My boy is quite laid back (surprising for a saddler x) which makes working him a challenge as getting him moving forwards is a battle… like Hendryette’s horse, he’s got plenty energy to buck… it’s the moving forward we are struggling with (all been checked, so all good on that front)… would this supplement be of any help? I don’t want psychotic, just MILDLY more forward, lol. as I am a nervous rider.

      Amanda, it really shouldn’t make him psychotic. And I guess Hendryette’s answer applies to you too. Try it, if it is too much, I’ll refund you.

    Sport Horse is amazing, i have had my warmblood on it for ages now and he looks wonderful he has got the most amazing top line and muscle tone.

    I have once taken him off Sport Horse and shoo it was a mistake as he started to loose so much shape and topline i will never do that again.

    Sport Horse mix along with good schooling gives you a very good looking horse. I always say i have “Brad Pitt” in the horse form……..

    Woody, my darling TB has been on the Sport Horse Mix for the last three or four months.
    Initially it was to help him build a bit more topline and help him to develop a butt, as he is quite weak in those areas, and looking at the last round of photos we are starting to make some progress!
    But last week I realised that there was a bonus.
    Normally if I ride him two days in a row, he is rather flat and lacking energy on the second day. But on Friday he was bouncing along as happy as can be, even though is Thursday ride had been a little ‘stressful’, when the herd of scary cows came past the arena and decided to have a few head-butting fights.
    So we are really thrilled with the changes in him!!!
