Cavalor Strucomix Senior.
HIGH FIBER FEED FOR THE SENIOR HORSE - The efficiency of the digestive system as well as the quality of a horse’s teeth decrease as horses age. As a result, senior horses need special nutritional attention. Cavalor® Strucomix Senior is specially formulated with puffed and extruded grains for easy and efficient digestion, high-quality proteins (easily digestible and faster conversion into energy) as well as a high level of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Cavalor® Strucomix Senior is the feed that contains everything your horses need for a healthy and active life. Senior has a higher calorie content than Original and can be beneficial for horses with increased calorie needs.
Indication for useQuantity per 220 lbs. of live body weight in addition to at least 16.5 lbs. of forage [hay]. At rest/maintenance: max 1.1 lbs; light exertion: max 1.3 lbs.

"I grew up on a farm with an equine veterinarian as a father and cannot remember a time when I did not own horses. I went to college at Auburn University where I earned a BS in Animal Science and my DVM and I have been practicing veterinary medicine for 12 years. When I started playing polo six years ago I fed my horses Purina Strategy. I trusted the company and I was very familiar with their research in animal nutrition. Because I frequently advise my clients not to make changes in an animal's nutrition unless there is a good reason to do so I was very reluctant to make a change myself. A Cavalor representative started talking to me about Cavalor over a year ago but I really was not interested in switching feed as my ponies were doing great. I continued talking to Libby and did some research on my own and began really thinking about my program. I had several older horses, two that were difficult to keep weight on, and another that was frequently choking on her pellets if they weren't fed to her very slowly. Maybe "great" wasn't the right word.
I switched all of my horses to Cavalor three months ago and have been absolutely thrilled. I'm no longer feeding supplements. My thin ones have picked up weight in spite of it being winter. And I have not had a single choking incident. I'm also very happy with how much the horses like it, even the ones that were never good eaters are excited at feeding time.
Thank you Cavalor for your contributions to equine nutrition and thank you to my Cavalor representative, Libby Cifuni for convincing me to make the change."

"Cavalor is a wonderful company to be associated with. Cavalor feeds and supplements are superior and keep my horses in top form. Their coats are always shiny, weight and muscle perfectly proportioned, and nutritional needs met on many levels. Their customer service is amazing as well. They are always there to answer any of my questions and concerns and take great pride in their products. My horses look and feel great! Thanks Cavalor!"

We have a mare that has difficulty focusing and needs a fair amount of grain and forage to stay in good weight. A professional rider we respect recommended feeding Cavalor® Pianissimo and we have had wonderful success. Cavalor has given us the horse we always knew was "in there"! We also use Cavalor® Performix and Cavalor® Strucomix Senior as a top dress for our other eventers. The horses love Cavalor feeds and they thrive on them.

"I made the switch and I mainly use Cavalor® Strucomix Senior as a base feed because it puts the weight on the horses without making them hot. Cavalor® Strucomix Senior is also great for the young horses because it helps them bloom without affecting their minds." Jenny Carbonari, coach and trainer.
"My 20-year-old Irish horse has always had a super course coat and I put him on the Cavalor® Strucomix Senior and his coat is amazing now, and his weight looks great. He loves that feed; it makes his day." Kristi Clarkson, upper level event ride
"I'm feeding Cavalor® Strucomix Senior to my 9-year-old. She is a very picky eater and she eats it like it's cotton candy, she loves it." Tanya Ledetter, Barrel Racer
"I feed Cavalor® Strucomix Original and Cavalor® Strucomix Senior to my horses. I originally switched because you can actually see what is in the feed; you can identify the ingredients and it's not bogged down with molasses. One of my horses is 24 and he used to eat so much of his feed and leave it, but he doesn't leave the Cavalor. I'm happy with his feed bucket empty at night." Lynn Doki Camina, Dressage Trainer.
"Sort of as an experiment I switched two of our horses, one being Brianne's [Goutal] oldest horses, he's about 17 now. We had trouble keeping weight on without him getting fat, we moved him over to the Cavalor® Strucomix Senior and Cavalor® Perfomix and then added Cavalor® Superforce in the mix later as well. The change alone in his coat is amazing. We've tried everything, Omega 3, but now he's dabbled and not that mousy brown. He looks as good as our stallion and that says a lot for me." - Tatiana Gabrush, Manager for International Show Jumper Brianne Goutal
"My 25-year-old mare started chocking and I spoke with my local Cavalor rep because she's also a really picky eater. My rep suggested I try Cavalor for Trilly and my other horse, Handsome, who's energy was never where I wanted it to be. Trilly loves the feed and nickers for her food. Her coat also looks great. Handsome is starting to put on muscle and gain a topline without getting hot. The horses love it and their energy is where it needs to be."

We've got a mail from a very enthusiastic Cavalor customer, Suzanna Hayward, who has a small breeding stud of Spanish Arabian horses in Northern France.
"I've been using Cavalor feed for over 5 years now, I'm always satisfied with the quality and so are my horses! My stallion Amoroso de Salvadora competes in jumping, dressage, showing and endurance. He gets Cavalor Strucomix while he's on rest and Cavalor Perfomix while working. He always looks fantastic and has a beautiful shiny coat. Amoroso will be competing at the World Championships in Paris in November in the senior stallion class. He will surely be the oldest horse to participate at nearly 18 years old, but he certainly doesn't look or act his age!
My broodmares are getting Cavalor ProBreed. Whilst in foal and lactating, the mares stay in great condition and the foals grow at a steady rate.
I really like the products of Cavalor, not only do the horses find them very palatable, they are already enriched with the right supplements needed for each discipline and give a fantastic and consistent quality. Cavalor is the best feed that is available for my horses and has the best range of options for all types of horses and all disciplines!"
Additional Information & Education
TIP: You can feed Strucomix Senior to horses of all ages. Great for hard keepers as well.
HIGH DIGESTIBILITY THROUGH PUFFED GRAINS
By puffing grains we are able to improve the starch digestibility in the foregut from an average of 5-50% to 85-90%. These grains travel through the stomach and small intestine at a slower rate, allowing the digestive enzymes more time to act on the feed. More nutrients in the feed are released for the horse to absorb while avoiding any rapid releases of sugar and starch, which is critical for horses with metabolic issues.
COMPLETE VITAMINS AND MINERALS PROFILE
Not only do we use a balanced blend of high quality vitamins and minerals, but we are always careful to use the most stable versions. While the vitamins we use are always in the most stable form, the minerals we use are always in the most absorbable form.
NOT ONLY FOR SENIOR HORSES
Strucomix Senior is a great feed for underweight horses, as well as for pregnant mares as it contains 14% protein from high quality protein sources.
Research has revealed strong evidence that the active components in the yucca root have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Antioxidants protect the horse’s cells against free radicals — molecules produced at the cellular level when the horse’s body breaks down feed.
