The Success Story
What started as feeding study at the German stud Hesta Borg in 1998 with its special breeds, developed into one of the most successful feed concepts for horses of all breeds: Hesta Mix. The influence of nutrient deficiencies and other deficiency symptoms on diet-related problems such as eczema, immune disorders, itching and mental disorders was uncovered with the Icelandic horses. A fundamental finding to optimize feed rations.
Especially rich in micronutrients
Mainly regularly working horses with an average requirement for component feed are fed the tasty "Hesta Mix Muesli". These are in most cases easy keepers, larger breeds such as Andalusians, Lusitanos, cold-blooded horses, Pintos, Arabs, Tinker or Friesian horses.
• highly bio-available trace elements
• rapid feeding success
• can be easily combined with other concentrated feeds
• contains herbs, ground algae, oils and oleaginous fruits
• free from oats
The many faces of deficiency symptoms
Many horses' energy requirements can be more than adequately met by feeding them very small concentrate feed rations. However, these small feed rations frequently lack essential vital nutrients and micronutrients. Conventional mineral supplements often fail to meet the real nutritional needs of the horses. The result are deficiency symptoms that express themselves in nervousness and restlessness, signs of wear and tear and digestive problems, susceptibility to infections, skin problems, allergies and loss of weight, metabolic and endocrine disorders.
Particularly high in trace element content
The Hesta Mix-series is rich in vital nutrients and has a high content in biologically available micronutrients. This guarantees an adequate and proper supply of organic trace elements even when fed in small quantities. Deficiency symptoms are reliably resolved or even prevented thanks to the easy absorption in the intestine and the rapid transport to the relevant target organ.
Hesta Mix Classic
The cold-pressed “Hesta Mix Classic” pellet contains slightly more trace elements and a bit more energy than Hesta Mix Müsli. The pellet is also suitable for easy keeping breeds. Livery horses also benefit from their home-grown diets being supplemented with Hesta Mix Classic, a fact that becomes visible in better skin and coat.

To supplement a basic diet consisting of roughage and/or grass. Starting from a quantity of:
• Classic: Approx. 150-250 g 1 litre = approx. 750 g
• Müsli: Approx. 200-300 g 1 litre = approx. 600 g
• Light: Approx. 100-150 g 1 litre = approx. 550 g
per 100 kg body weight per day, no additional mineral feed is required. The total amount of feed should be divided into several meals. If a lower dosage is used or in case of deficient supply, we recommend to additionally feed SemperMin or MicroVital.
