Speedi-Beet is hugely popular across the world and is now
available in 20 different countries.
Speedi-Beet is sugar beet pulp with no added molasses, which has
been subjected to our patented cooking process to produce a superb
complementary feed for horses, which is quick soaking, unique to us
unlike any other HorseBeet!
There's a high proportion of soluble fibre, mostly pectins in
Speedi-Beet, which means its fibre is more easily digested than
that found in forage like hay. This makes it a great source of slow
release energy, perfect for competition horses.
It's starch free and low in sugar, so an ideal feed for horses
prone to Laminitis and we're proud to have achieved Laminitis Trust approval.
You can replace some or all of your horse's concentrate feed
with Speedi-Beet, plus a balancer to provide vitamins and minerals,
to give your horse a higher fibre,lower starch diet
Speedi-Beet is versatile. Feed it in small amounts to overweight
horses as a carrier for a multivitamin and mineral supplement or in
larger quantities to a poor doer for weight gain, or to a working
horse for energy.

Leave to soak for 10 minutes using cold water or 5 minutes using
warm water (fantastic in the winter to warm your horse!).

you to prepare in advance if you wish. The No 1 Horsebeet!
All new feeds should be introduced gradually.
DO NOT FEED DRY
What's in Speedi-Beet
Speedi-Beet a unique HorseBeet has a moderate energy content,
similair to that of oats, but because this energy is coming from
digestible fibre rather than starch or sugar, it is non-heating. It
does have a better mineral balance than straight cereals, with
higher levels of calcium, but we recommend feeding Speedi-Beet with
a balancer, like Baileys Lo-Cal, to ensure a fully balanced diet
when feeding it alone with forage.
