Horses usually maintain a good body condition if offered a good quality diet of hay and pasture. Young horses or horses in hard work may require additional concentrates to meet their nutritional needs and old horses often require a senior feed because wear and tear on their teeth no longer allow them to graze sufficiently. If you notice your horse has lost weight it is important to assess your horse's health and management.
