Editor’s note: We at The Horse are horse owners like you. Certain equine-care products have impacted how we manage our own animals, and we want to share our experiences with you. These select products are ones we use and love every day.

A friend recently told me I have horses like most women have handbags: one for each mood that strikes me. Some days I like to get spiffed up and go to dressage clinics and USDF-recognized dressage shows. For that, I have my giant (now a retired old man) Hanoverian gelding, Marathon, and my 6-year-old off-track Thoroughbred mare, Ann (#OTTB2FEI). Other days I like to bomb down the trail at endurance rides on my Arabian-Hanoverian mare, Atty, who’s a dressage dropout but loves to eat miles in the high desert with her giant trot. And some days I just want to relax and enjoy a lope around the arena in a Western saddle on my slow-poke, peanut-rolling pleasure-bred Quarter Horse, Jack, whom I bred and is now an equine senior citizen. I think my friend was telling me I have too many horses. And some days, when I’m mucking paddocks, stuffing haynets, and dragging the arena instead of riding, I agree with her.

For that reason, I’m always looking for ways to trim horse chore time and maximize riding time without sacrificing quality of care. One solution? Simplifying my feeding program by using Triple Crown 30% Balancer
