About Triple Crown Senior Gold

Protein 14.5%

Fat 12.5%

Fiber 18%

1,800 KCAL/LB.

Developed for active, older horses, Triple Crown Senior Gold features a beet pulp-based formula with higher fat, an expanded amino acid profile and gastric buffering, which is ideal for performance horses and those under stress. This feed can be mixed with water to form a mash for horses that have difficulty chewing and swallowing.

Triple Crown Senior 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.

Great feed lives up to its claims

 by Leah Thiel

Several years ago I adopted a senior horse who was underweight and had few teeth. The TC Senior Gold was perfect for putting the weight back on her while still safe for her PPID diagnosis. She lost several more teeth over the years I had her and couldn’t eat hay or grass. This feed allowed her to remain a body score of 5 all the way until I had to say goodbye. I plan to use this feed in the future for any senior horses.

Didn't Know My Horse Could Look This Good!

I have a 9 year old off the track quarter horse gelding. I’ve had him about 4 years now. When I first got him, we was a little lean and scrawny, definitely looked like a track horse. I fed about 8 pounds of a competitor product and added additional products. He improved to a point, and then just maintained. I kept trying different additives, but I didn’t get any more improvement. I thought that was just him and how he looked. He didn’t look bad, but just not the body type I really wanted. I switched to Triple Crown Senior Gold and he absolutely flourished! He bulked up, in muscle as well as weight. He started to look like the stocky quarter horse I was hoping for. Over the years, he got to the weight I was wanting and I had to continually cut back his feed to avoid getting overweight. He now maintains beautifully on just three pounds topped with Balancer. He looks amazing and I cut my feed bill by feeding less.

Great Product

We use this with our older active horse and they maintain their weight beautifully and look amazing. We get a lot of compliments on how they look and perform for their age!
