Benchmark Achieve® - Sport

A complete premium muesli style ration for horses and ponies in medium to hard work.

When we created Achieve® - Sport our goal was to produce a premium feed that the rider could depend on to deliver optimal performance in all aspects, while holding true to our mantra of keeping feeds as natural as possible. The result is a feed that we are very proud of- and one you can trust to deliver results in terms of energy delivery, recovery, muscle mass and importantly consistent focus and behaviour. The inclusion of soy and lupin hulls not only enhances energy production via fermentation, but it also reduces the starch and sugar content of the feed, resulting in smooth sustained energy.

Notes from our Consultant Nutritionist

Recharge the Muscle Batteries - Horses need good levels of energy in their diets to function and perform at their best. With increased activity, horses burn up the stored energy in their muscles needed for that strong finish, like that final sprint or that last big jump. Benchmark Achieve®-Sport contains higher levels of energy needed for the higher performing horse, achieved through fat content in the feed, microbial fermentation of fibre producing “cool” energy, and micronised grains providing that all important muscle battery recharge.

Super Fibres – Fibre is the natural source of feed for horses and Benchmark Achieve®-Sport is packed with some of the best super fibres available. Soy and lupin hulls enhance microbial fermentation in the hindgut, improving digestion, vitamin production and overall health. It only makes sense to feed something natural to your best friend!

A Complete Feed – Benchmark Achieve®-Sport is heavily fortified with essential nutrients, all designed to enhance and improve the health, performance, and recovery of your equine athlete. Provide ample quality forage and water with Achieve®-Sport for a quality diet.

Immune Boosting – Benchmark Feeds Achieve®-Sport contains immune boosting minerals such as copper, zinc, manganese, selenium, iodine and chromium plus many high-quality antioxidants.

Gut Health – Benchmark Achieve®-Sport contains good levels of pre- and pro-biotics, designed to improve your horse’s gut and overall health.

Muscle Recovery - When athletes perform, their muscles become stressed and are continuously broken down and rebuilt. Performance horses are no different. With the rigours of continual, higher level activity, the risk of performance horses suffering injuries increases. Benchmark Achieve®-Sport contains good levels of essential amino acids, necessary for repairing stressed muscles plus high levels of chromium, scientifically proven to help prevent muscle breakdown and wastage.
