Helping the Hard Keeper
The underweight horse can have just as much difficulty maintaining a normal weight as the overweight horse. If you have a Hard Keeper, you know that no matter what you try, your horse still has difficulty gaining weight and maintaining a healthy weight. Why is this? It could be simply due to a fast metabolic rate, or the weight loss reason may be far more complex than this.
Don't be fooled into thinking that a ribby horse is okay. Seeing a glimmer of ribs while moving is fine, but if your horse's ribs are easily apparent just while standing still, he/she could benefit from a bit more tissue development.
The teleseminar emphasizes underweight as it relates to:
- Medical issues that lead to weight loss
- Helpful supplements
- What is normal for your horse?

- Cushing's disease
- Sand ingestion

- Pre vs probiotics
- Digestive enzymes
- Understanding the importance of B vitamins
- How to add more calories
- Which fats? Which carbohydrates?
- Seasonal weight concerns
