Why Gut Health Matters


The health of the horse’s gut is crucial to his overall health and well – being.



We know that by optimising gut health and digestive efficiency we allow the horseto fully utilise his diet and that this is clearly reflected in his general health and coat shine.




OPTIMUM Balancer provides the highest level of nutritional support and broadest spectrum of beneficial nutrients available to improve the gut function of fit, healthy horse’s and ponies.




OPTIMUM includes a strain of live probiotic yeast and the unique digestive clay bentonite montmorillonite – this mops up excess acids and toxins and stabilises excess digestive reactions. OPTIMUM provides more bentonite on a daily basis than any other formula currently available.




OPTIMUM provides the key antacid, calcium carbonate, for horses and ponies with excess levels of acid within the gut, plus herbs including ginger, liquorice and mint.




OPTIMUM provides a broad spectrum of all essential vitamins, minerals and key amino acids, plus naturally sourced antioxidants and linseed oil, a natural source of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for general health and vitality.




As well as boosting your horse or pony’s vitality, the additional oil in OPTIMUM helps to create a fabulous, glossy coat ensuring he looks and feels good inside and out.

It Works !





Following are stories & testimonials from riders who have used NAF OPTIMUM Balancer.


International Eventer – Bettina Hoy



“Following all the travelling and the change of stables from Germany to the UK I felt my young horse, Designer, had lost a bit of condition and that his appetite wasn’t as good as usual.”                                                                                                               “After feeding him OPTIMUM he now looks fabulous, in fact, after doing so brilliantly on OPTIMUM, I now feed it to all my horses to ensure I keep their gut healthy and their condition nothing short of five star!!”





Dressage Rider – Zoe Sleigh



“Satin Rouge, my Five Year Old Shearwater champion is prone to losing condition when away from home”

“After her success at The Hartpury Festival of Dressage, with the atmosphere and the busy time she had, she definitely ‘dropped off ‘,  We started to feed her OPTIMUM and it has worked wonders – she has put on super condition and looks a picture. We’re absolutely delighted”





Top Showing Producers - Claire and Robert Oliver




“We have been feeding OPTIMUM and have had super results. Fabulous condition, great topline – the horses look fantastic! Furthermore we now have the confidence that OPTIMUM supplies all the nutrition the horses need so we now feed less and we save money!



Feeding OPTIMUM couldn’t be easier, it’s so palatable some of the horses take the pellets straight from the hand – OPTIMUM is a truly five star product and we highly recommend it.





Keen Horsewoman - Natalie Povey




OPTIMUM  is by far the best balancer I have ever fed. It suits my horse Foxy perfectly, complementing his current high fibre feed and adlib haylage.



Foxy can be very fussy – but he says OPTIMUM is very tasty! I am much happier too as I know he is getting everything he needs in his diet to optimize his health.



Overall I have noticed a clear difference to his digestive health and he has improved his condition overall. As his gut is now more settled, he is a much happier settled horse. I would recommend OPTIMUM highly to anyone.”
