Fiber 15%

Triple Crown Perform Gold is a high fat, high fiber pellet ideal for performance horses or horses requiring additional calories. Perform Gold focuses on amino acid balance by including whey protein which is essential for muscle growth and development, and also electrolyte balance which aids in hydration. Additionally, it includes an organic, plant-based calcium, which provides gastric buffering for performance horses and those under stress.

Triple Crown Perform Gold goes beyond by providing: Enhanced Gastric Support with a seaweed-derived calcium source, optimal Amino Acid Balance with added whey protein and Improved Glucose Utilization from Chromium which may improve performance and delay fatigue. Senior Gold is a higher-fat senior feed from soy oil, rice bran and flaxseed providing additional calories to meet the needs of performance horses and hard keepers.

Perform Gold is the best!

I’ve been using TC products for years. My favorite line is the Gold line. The Perform has been wonderful for my horses, both performance and retired horses. It gives them enough to keep the weight on but not make them hot. Their coats are healthy and shiny. I don’t feed anything other than a joint supplement as this has everything my OTTBs need! I highly recommend it!!

Love it!

I've had my Arabian/Morgan pony on this since last summer (2023) and he has never looked or felt better! He recovers from rides easily, looks absolutely stunning, has such a shiny coat, and is so much healthier and happier than when I first got him. He has truly transformed. My whole herd LOVES Triple Crown!!

Great feed, love the low feed rate with all the extras to keep a performance horse in top competition shape!

The best

I have fed Triple Crown for many years to all my horses. The Perform gold is probably the best feed for a thoroughbred. It keeps their topline in excellent muscle and their weight perfect. It helps their tummy and nervous issues also. Great feed. My 16.1 hand thoroughbred gets 3.5 lbs of the Perform/day and 2 lbs of the Gold Balancer/day. It is split into 3 feedings. He actually could lose a little weight but I rather see him thicker than too too thin. They can lose it quickly. The Balancer Gold combined with TC Golden Flax is soy free which can also help with horses that are itchy in Florida. I always recommend Triple Crown, there is a feed for every need.

Triple Crown Always

I have a OTTB I got that was decent weight wise, but was at risk to founder due to his soles being so thin, but after having him a few weeks on Nutrena Safe Choice Preform he dropped weight very quickly. So we then tried Sentinel Preform for around a month we had to feed him three times a day at 5 lbs per feeding, and at $29 a bag that goes quickly. We then swapped to Purina Ultium Competition and were feeding 11 lbs a day and he looked OK but not amazing. One day after having him 3 months someone recommended TC to me and I have never looked back! He is now on 8 lbs (4 in the AM and 4 in the P) with 8 oz of Triple Crown oil and Equintity and looks AMAZING, luminous coat, strong hooves with thick soles and is 1200 pounds of muscle! All I feed is  TC.  My 35-year-old is on their senior and alfalfa, my two-year-old is on a mix of their senior, alfalfa, and balancer and I get comments on them all the time!
