Keep the muscle, lose the fat.
OBJECTIVE
Demonstrate weight loss of overweight horses by
reducing body fat to target body condition score
(BCS) in a period of 6 weeks.

* Average rate of weight loss was approximately 11 lb. per week. Approximately 1/4 decrease in BCS weight equivalent, per week.

and ponies. Vet J. Feb;179(2):204-10.
KEY FINDINGS
Horses demonstrated a safe rate of weight loss during
this 6 week trial with measured intake.
No metabolic disturbances were experienced through
the duration of this trial.
Data from this research suggests that body weight
decreases were due to decline in fat mass, not lean
muscle mass.
No change in loin muscle depth measurements
concurrent with decreases in % body fat suggest horses
maintained lean tissue mass while decreasing fat stores.
All horses demonstrated decreases in Crest Neck Score
(CNS). After 6 weeks, 6 out of 7 horses had subjective
CNS under 3, so would not be considered “cresty.”
ABOUT LOIN MUSCLE DEPTH
Largest muscle in horse’s back.
Runs along the top-line on either side of
the spine. (Fig. 1a)
Supports horse’s trunk & distributes propulsion
from hind-end
Ultrasound is a useful tool to image this muscle. (Fig. 1b)

measurement (cm) of the muscle.

CONCLUSION
Overweight horses fed SafeChoice® Special Care at the recommended feeding rate,
showed significant decreases in body weight through the loss of body fat, while
maintaining lean muscle mass. The results of this research demonstrates that
when fed a diet designed for Easy Keepers, horses can safely and effectively
drop fat while maintaining muscle mass.
