Native ponies are built to withstand the rugged cold weather and scarce grazing conditions; they are strong, durable and maintain their condition in times when food is limited. With domestication we have now brought these ponies out of the wild and into the show ring, taking them into an environment that is completely the opposite to their natural habitat. This can lead to many nutritional problems, particularly excess condition as these ponies are often provided a surplus of feed. Feeding Native ponies can be a balancing act between ensuring they are receiving all the nutrients they require to perform to the best of their ability without encouraging weight gain. Blue Chip understands that this can be a difficult task for even the most seasoned Native pony owners and this lead to the development of our new premium feed balancer; Original Native.
