REDUCED ENERGY FORMULA
Pianissimo is formulated to be a lower energy feed, with lower protein and no oats, which supports focus in hot horses. The mineral and amino acid additives provide a focused, well-centered horse.
Protein fed in excess of daily requirements cannot be stored in the horse’s body. Horses convert protein into muscle mass by eating adequate protein and exercising. If protein synthesis occurs at the maximum rate, the unused amino acids are broken down and excreted.
BALANCED VITAMINS AND MINERALS SUPPLY
Not only do we use a balanced blend of high quality vitamins and minerals, but we are always careful to use the most stable versions. While the vitamins we use are always in the most stable form, the minerals we use are always in the most absorbable form.
Oats have long been recognized as a source of energy for the horse in work, but for the horse prone to being hot or stressed, a high energy grain with oats can increase his energy and stress levels. An oat free grain can lower his energy level.

What should I feed my horse to promote a calmer temperament?
The first thing to do is to cut back on the oats and the wheat. Protein levels too must be re-evaluated. Other than that, feed the horse hay freely with extra crude fiber, as well as softened beet pulp and flax chaff. Some herbs will also produce good results. A range of supplements can also be considered. For example, extra vitamin B1 has a relaxing effect in high doses. Magnesium acetate reduces stress, and tryptophan – an amino acid – also has a stress-inhibiting effect in certain concentrations. These products and specific compositions are all available as part of the Pianissimo feed and the Cavalor Calm feed supplement.
What type of feed is Pianissimo?
Pianissimo is the proper feed for horses that require a feed concentrate that is low in protein. Pianissimo has a very low 7.5 % protein content and supplies sufficient energy to power a sport horse, ensuring that protein-sensitive horses do not get swollen legs or stiff muscles. This makes it possible to engage in normal activities with these animals. Nor will these horses be prone to profuse sweating. White sweat is an indication of too much protein in the ration. The best way to address this is to feed the animal a combination of feed concentrate and stalky hay – not silage grass, which usually has a much higher protein content.
Will feeding Pianissimo make my horse too weak?
Pianissimo contains an anti-stress product (Cavalor Calm). This relieves tension and stress, which makes for a more settled ride on the horse or a better-behaved driving horse. The horse will not look sluggish or drowsy and will exert the effort to do as asked. A more settled attitude will enable the horse to perform to a better standard, as the energy is dosed to promote that effect.
