Honey B®


The natural Alternative

HYGAIN® HONEY B® is a micronized sweet feed designed by nature and buzzing with natural goodness. HYGAIN® HONEY B® is a cool, high fibre designed to meet the nutritional needs of horses  in light to moderate work.

Crude Protein 10 % Calcium 1.2%
Crude Fat 4% Phosphorous 0.5%
Max Crude Fibre 14% Vitamin E 250 IU/kg
Added Salt 1.25% Selenium 0.4 mg/kg

HYGAIN® HONEY B® is a blend of the following quality ingredients:

Micronized Barley, Micronized Lupins, Rice Bran Oil, Legume Hulls, Honey Flavour, Natural Vitamin E, Lucerne Chaff, Molasses, Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Magnesium Oxide, Bio-Available Selenium and HYGAIN® Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix.


HYGAIN® RBO®RBO® Equine Performance Oil® is a blend of rice bran oil, omega 3,6 & 9 essential fatty acids and natural anti-oxidants known to improve the health and structural integrity of cell membranes. RBO® oil plays an important role in maximising energy efficiency due to its energy dense nature and is digested efficiently in the small intestine reducing the ‘sugar high’ associated with high grain diets. RBO® promotes growth and development of the muscular system, top line and a healthy skin and coat.

Natural Vitamin E – This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.

Super Fibres – As the name suggests super fibre is a product that contains highly digestible fibre with very little non-digestible fibre. These highly digestible fibre sources provide horses with a calorie content similar to grain, however since they are fibre they are safer to feed and given that Super Fibres are digested in the hindgut (cecum and colon) they do not produce rapid changes in blood sugar (Fizz) like grain. Super fibres are as safe to feed as chaff or hay and even more digestible.

HYGAIN® MICRBARLEY®MICRBARLEY® is rapidly converted and absorbed as glucose in the small intestine, providing energy twice as efficiently as starch fermented in the large intestine. The starch in MICRBARLEY® is over 98% digested in the horse’s small intestine whereas the starch in unprocessed and conventionally processed grains is only 20-30% digested. By transferring the site of digestion back to the small intestine we reduce the burden of fermentation on the large intestine and the accumulation of lactic acid, heat and ammonia. HYGAIN® MICRBARLEY® grains provide for safer, cooler feeding which can in turn lead to fewer incidences of colic, laminitis, acidosis, fatigue, nervousness and reduced performance.


HYGAIN® HONEY B® is a nutritious palatable honey coated sweet feed. Care should be taken to match feed intake to body condition and workload. Reduce feed intake on rest days, if horses gain weight and/or training regime is interrupted.

HYGAIN® HONEY B® should be introduced to your horse’s diet gradually. Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, appetite, exercise, desired body condition, pasture/hay quality and availability and climate. HYGAIN® HONEY B® should be fed in conjunction with quality pasture, hay and/or chaff.

    Hygain’s Honey B is the most palatable horse feed that I have ever tried. My horse just love it and they thrive on it.

    my young wb was a bit light in condition when I bought him and after starting him on simple soaked barley and lupins I started researching what I could feed. He was sensitive to soy so finding a fattening feed without it was a must. I came across Honey B and he hasn’t looked back! It has everything he needs, he absolutely devours it and his condition is now perfect – best of all no more cooking barley and lupins for me 🙂

    Hygain will be my feed of choice from now on that’s for sure!

    During our first winter my mare lost a lot of condition and it broke my heart. At the time I was on another weight gaining feed that didn’t work for her, then we were battling injuries for 5 or so months now so I needed to research better quality feeds to build her condition up and bring the shine into her coat and the life and happiness in her eyes again.

    So, I emailed the HYGAIN team and was sent their recommendation to what would best suited for my mares need to build condition and be balanced.

    HYGAIN HONEY B and HYGAIN BALANCED mixed with gleam and chaff was the recommend diet and I honestly couldn’t be happier with my results!!!! I wouldn’t feed anything else to my horse and future horses now seeing the results for myself!!!

    Love always Chrisanthi and the beautiful Archer

    Honey B is amazing! My Arab Gelding loves this and when combined with fibressential he has the most amazing shine and coat all year around – without the heat being added to him (which for an arab is remarkable).

    Wouldn’t feed anything else

    This my 2 year old Welsh B Nilton Special Effects. He loves his HYGAIN HONEY B and as you can see he has lightened up a lot. The photo of him very dark in the paddock is the first day we got him and the photo of him plaited up at the show is him know.

    Thank you Hygain.

    My fussy TB mare went completely off her normal hard feed and refused to eat anything until she tried Honey B. She absolutely loves it and doesn’t lift her head until it’s all gone. Even with supplements mixed in she always eats it all. She looks amazing and it doesn’t heat her up, highly recommended feed!
