The ultimate competition feed

HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE is not only a low dose, high fat, cereal grain free feed, that promotes lean muscle mass development, no, on top of all that it also enhances hoof growth and coat shine.

Topline building at its best, HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE provides sensible energy through slow release sources combined with essential amino acids and bio-available antioxidants for muscle tissue repair and to help manage the stresses of training and competition.

It is THE feed everyone is raving about!!

Crude Protein 20 % Phosphorous 0.6%
Crude Fat 9% Vitamin B1 500mg/kg
Max Crude Fibre 16% Vitamin E 725IU/kg
Added Salt 1.24% Selenium 1.4mg/kg
Calcium 1% Biotin 10mg/kg

SHOWTORQUE®is a blend of the following quality ingredients:

MICRLUPINS®, MICRBEANS®, Sunflower Seeds, Full Fat Soya-bean Meal, Soya-bean Meal, Canola Meal, Hy-Fibre Soya Hulls, Pollard, Lucerne Meal, RBO® (Rice Bran Oil including Omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids and Natural Anti-Oxidants), Natural Vitamin E, Molasses, Calcium Carbonate, Di Calcium Phosphate, Salt, HYGAIN® Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix, Lysine, Methionine, Vitamin B1, Prebiotic (MOS), Probiotic (live yeast), Bio-Available Selenium and Biotin.


Biotin – Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers, veterinarians and scientists.

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.

Vitamin B1 – Vitamin B1 aids in energy utilisation and may help to keep horses calm.

Prebiotic – Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® SHOWTORQUE® have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.

Probiotics – Probiotics are good bacteria that stimulate the activity of other good bacteria in the horse’s digestive tract. The addition of probiotics (live yeast) to equine diets improves fibre, phosphorus and calcium digestibility and increases gross energy, total lipid and amino acid absorption.

HYGAIN® SHOWTORQUE’S® high fat, non cereal grain, biotin enriched formula provides topline conditioning, the energy for competition and a healthy GLEAMing coat without the “fizz” associated with a high grain diet. All you have to do is add roughage.

HYGAIN® SHOWTORQUE® 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® SHOWTORQUE® should be fed in conjunction with quality pasture, hay and/or chaff.

HYGAIN® SHOWTORQUE® is a nutritious palatable feed concentrate. Care should be taken to match feed intake to body condition and workload.

    My horses needs are covered with one complete bag of feed. I use Hygain Showtorque for my hack, it keeps his condition on and keeps him ’round’ in all the right places and adds a great shine to his coat.

    About 10 months ago a friend suggested your feeds for my 5 year old Australian Stock Horse as I was going through a feeding crisis. Walking into the local produce would turn me into a nervous wreck. As you know, there are SO many feed companies within Australia, and trust me…We have tried them all.

    After spending hundreds and hundreds (thousands and thousands) on feeds my horse hated and feeds that did not work for him…I finally came across Hygain…And you have set my mind at complete ease.

    After feeding a combination of HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE and HYGAIN HONEY B, my horse has never looked better. You have taken all the hard work out of having to balance a complete feed.

    I just wanted to thank you for supplying Australia with a GOOD QUALITY feed that is becoming more easily accessible in Brisbane.

    My horse and I just want to say thankyou! Thankyou! Thankyou!
    All the best, Jillian

    I would like to thank the team at Hygain for an excellent product. I am over the moon with the way HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE has changed my horse for the better and I would also like to thank you for my wonderful birthday surprise that was given to me as a champion club member. Something like this means a lot to someone who absolutely adores your products. Keep up the excellent work and I will continue to tell everybody who will listen what great products you supply and how superior they are to all else on the market.

    After feeding my two horses showtorque they look awesome. I like the fact that your feed products are a no fuss product and each bag is like a pot of gold- contains all the required nutrition needed by horses.
    Thankyou for an awesome feed product.

    After using your products Showtorque and Senior my horses look amazing.
    I love how everything’s in these feeds and it’s all in one bag.

    Thanks for an awesome product Anne-Marie.

    Just wanted to show everyone the awesome transformation Manny the 4 year old pony has gone through. In two months he has gone from being in healthy, but light condition to being well covered, beautifully shinny and looking amazing! I put it down to feeding him HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE – a complete feed which gives him everything he needs to develop into a Super-star.

    Seven weeks ago I bought a thoroughbred straight off the track. He looked like a greyhound, his coat was dull and he was absolutely crazy on his ‘race diet’! Everyone thought I was mad to take him on but there had to be a nice little horse under there somewhere, right?

    I bought every feed I could think of to try and put some weight on him and he barely touched any of them (he’s really fussy eater it turns out). I stumbled upon TRU GAIN in my local feed store one day and thought “why not”. He’s nearly finished the bag now and can’t get enough of it – his bucket is licked clean and he is stacking on the weight! I couldn’t be more impressed (or relieved!).

    I started adding some SHOWTORQUE to his feed as well shortly after the success with TRU GAIN, though I was a little nervous at first because some friends said it made their horses hyper. I’ve found he is calmer than ever and an absolute dream to work with (plus his coat is looking incredible!). He’s been going so well I’ve even let some of my beginner friends get on and have a walk/trot/canter/jump by themselves and he has done nothing but act like an old school master.

    For a five year old thoroughbred who’d run a race not even eight weeks before (and only just brought into work!) none of us are able to believe the difference. Thank you so much to everyone at HYGAIN for making feeds that my horse loves and that actually work. Will definitely recommend you guys to everyone!

    I have a 22 yo purebred Polish Crabbet Arabian mare in Darwin (scorching temperatures and lack of pasture in the NT so it’s hard to keep condition on) and she used to struggle with condition, energy and battled rain scald every single year.. Until I introduced HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE and HYGAIN TRU CARE. 4 years later and she is looking better than ever, her condition is amazing, copious amounts of good energy and hasn’t had rain scald since …
    She has amazing energy, great appetite, strong white hooves, glowing coat, she never gets sick and never gets flat during scorching hot rides .
    In the 20 years I have had her this has been the best feed I have used. Thank you Hygain !!

    I started using Hygain products recently and was extremely pleased with the results. My 3 year old was really struggling to gain any weight and it didn’t matter what I fed him. He was on supplements galore to try to pack it on. I put him on HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE and now he is gleaming, happy, healthy and energetic. Not only has this feed improved his health, weight and appearance, it has also cut out all supplements that I was previously using including biotin. Very impressed! I would recommend using Hygain products to anyone and everyone!

    I would like to thank you all for helping me with a diet plan for my aged horse Hooch. He will be 24 in OCT and is in full work he was on a lot of supplements and I mean a lot. He was on mixed chaffs with Gumnuts and Livamol, cell provide, rose hip, equine joint formula, equisure, soy, a few others I can’t even think off. He wasn’t holding his weight, no matter what work I did he wasn’t putting on topline, his energy levels weren’t great either. We recently changed him to SHOWTORQUE and TRU CARE and he is off all his supplements. A simple but very effective diet and he has never been better. In just 3 weeks he is more keen to work, he has put more topline on and we have more rib coverage. He recently did 2 events in one week and recovered by the next day. Thank-you so much!!

    For the two years I’ve owned Dane, we have always struggled with not only his weight, but his lethargy as well – getting through a lesson has always been a massive struggle.
    In December his weight reached an all time low. The combination of stomach ulcers and incorrect feed really took it’s toll, and I had to stop riding all together. My wonderful vet prescribed a course of Gastrozole to sort out his tummy, and after lots of research I chose HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE as our new feed. After two and a half months, I can safely say it was the best decision I’ve ever made! Dane has improved in leaps and bounds! His weight continues to improve every day, his muscle mass has increased, and his energy levels have improved dramatically.
    For the first time in our two years together, Dane is close to his ideal weight and muscle mass, and our dressage has improved out of sight!
    So thank you thank you thank you!

    Firstly, I want to say I’m a huge fan of Hygain! I have been feeding SHOWTORQUE for many years to horses of all ages and competition level. This is Bender my 4 year old TB. Results thanks to SHOWTORQUE, Feb 2015 – June 2015!

    He is a beautiful horse inside and out, I take a lot of pride in how my horses look and believe they are a walking advertisement for ourselves so having him in top condition is a must, all thanks to SHOWTORQUE!! Thank you!

    Just wanted to comment in how happy I am with SHOWTORQUE for our leased Holsteiner Warmblood, Sotar. He gets 1.5kg mixed with chaff. He’s SUPER shiny!! I begun feeding since April.

    I just wanted to say how much I love show torque. My 26yr old thoroughbred who is still in full work and being competed, had lost a lot of condition coming into a cold Tasmania winter, and since changing him to Showtorque in June, he gleams. He is a very picky eater, but always eats all his show torque.
    Just yesterday he won the Dressage TAS South Preliminary Adult Amateur Series against some tough competition.
    I love this feed, it keeps him healthy and gives him energy to last all day at a competition.
    Thank you from a happy owner

    After a horrible winter battling with my horse who was suffering from stomach ulcers and not enjoying her work at all I decided to put her on a 30 day ulcer treatment and do a feed overhaul, something had to change. After about a month of going though all the feed options I decided on Hygain Showtorque, it is cereal grain free and I don’t need to feed massive amounts of it to get the benefits.

    Almost immediately I began to see changes in her and as the show season rolled around, I had a completely different horse! She’s positive in her work, happier, has more energy, we haven’t had any issues with ulcers since, and she is in the best condition she has ever been in, she looks incredible! We have been able to progress in our work and she feels better then ever!
    It was the best decision I have ever made and I would never look back!


  16. Sarah April 26, 2016 at 2:32 pm #

    I am amazed with the results of Hygain Showtorque to my horses coats and energy levels- coming into winter they have never looked shinier or healthier! An absolute testament to the quality of the product!

  17. Michele December 23, 2016 at 12:26 pm #

    I just want to share with you my success story feeding HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE and HYGAIN TRU GAIN to my TB gelding.

    When I got him I tried so many feeds to try and get him to gain weight. It only took a short time to see the difference, now I will only feed Hygain. The after photo is him only 6 weeks after changing his diet.


  18. April December 23, 2016 at 12:29 pm #

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you! You truly are experts in what you do I wouldn’t know where I would be without your feed, it takes the guess work out and sure does make a huge difference even in a short period of time!

    I was given this beautiful boy he went through a rough trot & lost his best friend & ended up on his own he wouldn’t eat & was naturally a poor doer. I have slowly introduced your feed & he has loved it from day one he honestly can’t get enough of it! He is currently on HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE & HYGAIN BALANCED along with combo chaff and has free run of the paddock & a round bale.

    This is him the day before I started & again exactly two months on I am over the moon with his results & can’t wait until he is back to his full potential!

    I honestly have never found or used a feed better than yours not only has it delivered results the time frame in which you can achieve these in are amazing! Not to mention its fantastically priced. Would highly recommend your products to anybody & will continue to use for as long as I have horses. Also the support/advice your team offer is above & beyond. Thank you for all that everyone at Hygain do for taking out the guess work & providing the very best for our horses! I am more than happy to keep you updated!

    Cheers April

    Jacko is an ex-racehorse thoroughbred who is rising the big 8 years old. We are focusing on the eventing and show jumping area. Jacko is heading in the direction of eventing because of his bold character and lovely paces. His previous feed was a scoop of Maxi-soy and 2 handfuls of fibre ezy.

    Thanks to Lydia Quay, our coach, Hygain was introduced to Jacko’s diet and now he is looking amazing! We began feeding him Hygain to see if it will increase his energy levels and weight. He is currently being fed: 1 scoop of HYGAIN FIBRESSENTIAL, 1 scoop of HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE, 1 scoop of HYGAIN TRU GAIN and 2 scoops of meadow chaff. As you can tell by the pictures Jacko’s condition has improved significantly and we are so thankful that Hygain has come to the rescue.
