He is your BFF, you love him heaps and want him to be happy and healthy, but he is not as flexible as he used to be, he drops weight easily, especially in the cold winter months and his teeth have seen better days. Your horse is aging, a natural process, just like in humans.
We understand that our senior friends require special nutritional attention due to decreases in metabolic and digestive efficiencies that accompany the ageing process. We have taken these changes into consideration and developed HYGAIN® TRU CARE®, which provides your horse with higher levels of nutrients that are essential to maintain joint health and mobility, body condition and general well-being.
HYGAIN TRU CARE® is a blend of the following quality ingredients: Cereals, Vegetable Protein Meals, Legumes, Legume Hulls, Beet Pulp, Rice Bran Oil, Di Calcium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Lysine, Magnesium Oxide, Prebiotic (MOS), Natural Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Bio-Available Selenium, Yucca Schidigera, Glycosaminoglycans, HYGAIN® Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix.

Natural Vitamin E
This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma, further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.
Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.
HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil
HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil is a blend of rice bran oil, omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids and natural anti-oxidants known to improve the health and structural integrity of cell membranes.
Glycosaminoglycans – For the maintenance of healthy joints and mobility.
Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers and veterinarians.
Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® TRU CARE® have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences, essential for optimum health and performance.
As the name suggests super fibres, such as Beet Pulp, Soy Hulls and Legume Hulls are products that contain highly digestible (soluble) fibre with very little non-digestible fibre. Beet pulp is fermented in the large intestine of the horse similar to hay, pasture and chaff and does not produce rapid changes in blood sugar (Fizz) like grain. Beet pulp provides digestible energy ranging between that of good quality hay and grains, sourcing energy from soluble fibre as opposed to energy from starches and sugars. Consequently, it is ideal for all equines, especially for horses where weight gain is desired as it increases the caloric content and energy density in the diet.
HYGAIN® TRU CARE® provides a balanced diet of highly digestible fibre, fat and carbohydrates along with essential vitamins and minerals specifically developed to meet the nutritional requirements of mature horse/pony (6 yo +) when in work, at rest or enjoying retirement.
HYGAIN’s controlled moisture and pressure cooking process (extrusion) promotes highly efficient digestion and nutrient utilisation and improved feed safety. The extruded cube can be soaked in water, resulting in a mash that is ideal for horses with poor dentition.
Care should be taken to match feed intake to age, breed, appetite, exercise, desired body condition, pasture/hay quality and availability and climate. HYGAIN® TRU CARE® should be fed in conjunction with quality pasture, hay, chaff or soluble fibre sources.
"The team at Hygain and their awesome diet program, Nutrikey, helped me to pick the perfect feed for my new OTTB. Tru Care has made a huge difference in all of my horses. The special nutrients in Tru Care has rapidly built up my horses weight and top line while strengthening their hooves, joints and muscles. Thanks to Hygain and this awesome feed I am looking forward to having well conditioned, healthy horses heading into a cold Canberra winter."
"My Grand Prix dressage horse, Cil Dara Gandalf, is a very fussy eater and we’ve struggled for years to find a feed that will support his work regime. He’s a mature horse and we’re very conscious of his nutritional requirements so when we discovered Tru Care, with all the support it gives to older horses, we were delighted to find that Gandalf gave it the tick of approval. Instead of being a picky eater, he now licks his feed bowl clean every time and I can relax knowing he’s getting all the nutrition he needs. We used to struggle to keep condition on – now, thanks to Tru Care, he is absolutely blooming.
I also use Tru Care for Fiodore, my 9 year old up and coming dressage horse. It’s such a complete feed that I know that it provides all the nutrition needed to support his strength and muscle development as he works hard to follow in Gandalf’s shoes."
"Tru Care, being made for older horses, contains all of the necessary elements that actually help maintain dressage horses to a high level. With highly digestible ingredients that support muscle building, muscle metabolism and a healthy gut, I have found Tru Care to be a complete feed for all ages of horses. I have fed Tru Care to three year olds right through to my GP horse while he was in his late teens competing at the top level and I do believe feeding him nothing but Tru Care and hay was a key driver of my success in competition."
