A grain, alfalfa and molasses free diet. Ideal for horses with insulin resistance, Cushing’s, EPSM and PSSM, requiring additional calories or tend to have allergies. Also ideal for HYPP horses. 

Formulated specifically for mature horses, Triple Crown Low Starch is a pelleted low starch and sugar (NSC) feed for horses requiring a lower diet for metabolic reasons or for horse owners seeking calmer behavior from horses. Featuring fewer carbohydrates than hay and pasture, Triple Crown Low Starch can be used as a complete feed to replace all or part of the forage portion of the diet.  This feed is also suited for those who tend to have allergies, ideal for HYPP horses as the feed contains a low potassium level and works well for senior horses in winter in order to avoid the bricking of textured feeds.

Low Starch is a Life Saver

My 37 yo gelding loves his low starch feed and I really love knowing that I'm feeding him something that won't kill him...due to Cushing's disease complications. I've been purchasing Low Starch feed for 20 years now and the feed is always fresh, dry, and very aromatic. Thank You Triple Crown!!

Thank you Triple Crown Feeds!

I have been feeding Triple Crown Senior to my mare since she had colic surgery in 2002. Most people cannot believe she is 17 this year. There is no need for vitamin supplements, just good hay and pasture. I have tried other Senior brands and there is no comparison! My other mare is on Triple Crown Low Starch, it keeps her energy level manageable and she looks great. Never have to worry about the formulas changing like some other brands! Thank you Triple Crown Feeds!

PSSM Horses Greatly Improved Thanks to Triple Crown

I wanted to touch base with you again regarding my daughter’s horse who has a serious case of PSSM. I spoke with you about three years ago when the horse was three and we had just had him diagnosed by muscle biopsy with the PSSM condition. At that time, you and I discussed feeding options for him. I want you to know that in the past three years he has been very successfully maintained on So. States feed. He gets the Triple Crown low starch pellets, the Triple Crown Safe Starch forage instead of hay, and I have recently added the pelleted rice bran for the extra fat content. The horse is now six years old and has last year placed 10th at the AQHYA World Show in Performance Geldings and placed 7th at the Congress in Youth Trail, among his other accomplishments. We could not have successfully maintained this special needs horse without his Triple Crown feeding program. We have been feeding him your products religiously and he has been, for the most part, symptom free. If you ever need a poster child for your starch free products or to promote your feed for PSSM horses, we would be happy to help. AQHA did a short article on him and my daughter for the American Quarter Horse Foundation because they are researching PSSM and because my daughter is a scholarship recipient. His picture and story is being used in their promotional materials for the Foundation as well. Thanks for you help several years ago.

My mare is doing great thanks to Triple Crown!

My mare is doing great; she seems to really like the Triple Crown low starch.  I really appreciate that the pellets don’t fall apart when I make up her meals with canola oil a day in advance.  Overall, she looks wonderful and her neck is less cresty.  I’ve been able to reduce the amount of oil I give her without her losing weight (I’m not sure if that’s because of the weather or the feed, but I’m happy about it).

I think that is so important to know what and why we are feeding our horse!

I have been feeding my horses Triple Crown Low starch now for about two months. I barrel race up here in Washington state. I have put my main barrel horse on it and also my brood mares and young and up and coming colts. All of my horses look better and feel better than they ever have. I am so excited to race Dilly this year at our NBHA races I am starting earlier than I ever have, just because he feels so good I am thinking he will be awesome not only outside the race arena but in it. I want to thank you for not only making a great product but I also want to thank you for having an explanation of what your ingredients are and why they are in your product. I think that is so important to know what and why we are feeding our horse. Thank you again so much.
