If you own a horse, there is a good chance that you have heard about beet pulp. Beet pulp is safe for horses and it can be very beneficial to your horse’s health.
Beet pulp is low in sugar which makes it easier for horses to digest. It is also high in fiber, making it a type of forage for horses.
You can either feed beet pulp dry or soak it in water before you feed it to your horse. Both ways are acceptable, however, most horse owners prefer one method over the other.
One common myth about feeding dry beet pulp to horses is that it can cause them to choke. Dry beet pulp does not cause a horse to choke. If your horse is prone to choking on its regular grain, it will also do the same with dry beet pulp.
There are a lot of recipes for soaking beet pulp. Every horse owner and veterinarian has their own method that works for them. It may take some trial and error, but it won’t take long to find what works best for you and your horse.
