Feeding a horse grain once a day is fine, but horses need a steady supply of forage throughout the day to maintain their health. If your horse is kept in a stall, it’s best to feed it hay twice a day in a slow feeder.
How many times a day should I feed my horse?
Feeds should be fed at least twice a day. Feeds should be fed in equally divided amounts. Feeds should be fed near to or at the same time each day and at even intervals throughout the day.
Should horses be fed on a schedule?
Horses thrive on routine, and their amazingly accurate internal clocks make them much better timekeepers than their human caretakers. Horses should be kept on a consistent feeding schedule, with meals arriving at the same time each day.
How often do horses eat?
Horses should be fed little and often, all day. If a horse is kept in a stable, it needs two to three feeds per day. You should not leave your horse for longer than eight hours without food. Horses like routine, so try to feed them at the same time every day.
How many hours apart can you feed a horse?
If you feed your horse twice a day, you should feed it after 12 or so hours. If you feed your horse small meals more than twice a day, you should feed it around dawn every day, and all the successive meals should be no more than four to six hours apart.
