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.

What Makes Speedi-Beet so Great?

  • Soaks in 10 minutes - quick and convenient
  • Our unique cooking process means that nutrients are more readily available to the horse
  • 95% sugar free and no starch - ideal for horses whose starch intake needs limiting, like those prone to Laminitis or tying-up.
  • Great source of soluble fibre for optimum slow release energy
  • Ideal for fussy eaters who love the slightly caramelised taste
  • The beet fibre in Speedi-Beet has a prebiotic effect so stimulates the growth of the "good" gut bacteria
  • Non-GM and no additives or preservatives for your peace of mind
  • Good source of organic calcium for bone strength
  • Aids rehydration in hot weather, due to its high water and electrolyte content - Speedi-Beet holds water which can be released slowly into the horse's system
  • "Non-heating" so not causing excess exuberance

 

Putting it together

Preparing Speedi-Beet couldn't be easier.

Simply mix 5 parts of water to 1 part of Speedi-Beet by weight.
That's about 2½ parts of water to 1 part of Speedi-Beet by volume.
Leave to soak for 10 minutes using cold water or 5 minutes using warm water (fantastic in the winter to warm your horse!).  Once Speedi-Beet has been soaked it can be fed straight away or it can be stored in a cool environment for up to 24 hours, enabling 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.
