HYGAIN TRU GAIN® as an alternative energy source provides the following benefits to your horse’s diet:
• Increases energy content of diet without fizz
• Reduces excitability
• Increases oxidative capacity in performance horses
• Acts as a carrier for fat soluble vitamins

|Crude Protein 10 %||Vitamin E 700 IU/kg|
|Crude Fat 20%||Selenium 1 mg/kg|
|Max Crude Fibre 18%||Phosphorus 0.5 %|
HYGAIN TRU GAIN® is a blend of the following quality ingredients:
Rice Bran Oil, Bran, Legume Hulls, Soya-bean Meal, Natural Vitamin E, Bio-Available Selenium, Calcium Carbonate.
HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil®– HYGAIN® 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. HYGAIN® 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. HYGAIN® 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.
Bio-Available Selenium – Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.
HYGAIN TRU GAIN® may also be used to decrease (partially replace) the amount of grain in your horse’s diet, providing a safer method of supplying calories. Reduced levels of starch intake may decrease the risk of feed related disorders such as colic, laminitis, acidosis, Equine Metabolic Syndrom and Cushings.
Horses that are adapted to dietary fat have an increased oxidative capacity and spare muscle and liver glycogen during aerobic exercise.
A high quality coat is partially dependent on providing horses with essential fatty acids for healthy skin and gleaming hair as provided in HYGAIN TRU GAIN®.
HYGAIN®’s controlled moisture and pressure cooking process (extrusion) promotes highly efficient digestion and nutrient utilisation and improved feed safety.
HYGAIN TRU GAIN® can be fed as an addition to your horse’s premixed feed/grains and roughage. Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, appetite, exercise, desired body condition and pasture/hay quality and availability.

An amazing come back after a stomach infection!
(Jayde, Dec 2016)
Hello Hygain team!
I just wanted to tell you how amazing your feeds have been in helping both my Thoroughbreds in weight and muscle gain throughout the winter. I have noticed a massive change in my 15 year old geldings weight, top line, coat and attitude! Over three months I fed both my boys HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN TRU CARE and they are now looking the best i have ever seen them! Zeus had a major stomach infection and has made a great come back and you can see from the top and bottom pictures he is no longer skinny and ribby but is now looking incredible!
Thanks again Hygain you have one happy customer
My almost 28 year old mare has never looked this good!
(Michele, Dec 2016)
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.
Feeds that do wonders!
(Taylor, Nov 2016)
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to your company for the outstanding results in my gelding I purchased off an old friend who neglected their horse an left it in a paddock to starve for 8 months!
This is Fredo , I’ve had him for 4 months now and this is his progress. He is currently on HYGAIN TRU GAIN and Allrounder these feeds have done nothing but wonders and I will be forever thankful!
HYGAIN to the rescue!
(Zoe, August 2016)
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.
The effects of Tru Gain in only 7 days
(Michelle, July 2016)
I would just like to pass on my feedback for your wonderful product HYGAIN TRU GAIN. I have a 9 month old growing Andalusian x TB colt who was starting to lose a bit of condition over the last couple of weeks due to a recent growth spurt combined with having a very light coat coverage and cooler weather.
I purchased a bag of HYGAIN TRU GAIN and within 7 days of adding 500g per day to his diet (and no other changes) his fat coverage has increased significantly and I am really pleased with the effect. His behaviour has not changed at all either (remaining a very calm, happy and easy to handle colt). I am sure you agree he is looking rather smart for a gangly baby 🙂
A Standy with a QH bum!
(Masha, May 2016)
I bought my girl off of a beautiful soul who rescued her from the dodgers, a little over a year ago. She is a 9yr old Standardbred ex pacer. She was emaciated. Her coat was dull and matted. I had to cut off more than half her mane and tail which were thin, frizzy and dread locked.
As a first time horse owner, i researched for days how to most effectively and gently better her condition. After 2 weeks on HYGAIN TRU GAIN, she was glowing! After 6 months, her tail had not only grown back but was lusciously thick and the envy of all the girls at our stables! Since improving her condition ive now played around with various Hygain products and can not speak highly enough of them.
My mares coat has completely transformed and her new backside even gets her mistaken for a quarter horse! Everyone continues to comment on how shiny she is (even now through winter) and I’ve never had issues with her being ‘hot’.
I”m confident that Hygain have a product to suite any horse and any dietary requirement/preference, and are truly invested in the well-being of our fur babies!
Thank you, Hygain!
Massive change in LESS than a month
(Skye, Apr 2016)
Ref came to me over a month ago in poor condition, he looks so much better and has brightened right up as well. I feel the HYGAIN TRU GAIN has helped tremendously with his weight gain.
Thank you Hygain.
I swear by TRU GAIN
(Samantha, Apr 2016)
HYGAIN TRU GAIN!! I swear by it! Started my first OTT horse on it, now all my racehorses under my care also get it! My latest is pictured here in the first photo, the second photo is day 7, and the last is day 15! It is fantastic for the horse’s topline, horses that don’t do well and really any horse! And not much is needed!
A 2 months transformation
(Laura, Mar 2015)
Love Hygain feeds & very easy to sell it when I use it & know it works wonders.
Full of life after only one bag!
(Chelsea, Apr 2015)
Veiko is a rising 4 year old Trakehner gelding whom I recently purchased. His previous owner fed large amounts of oats/ lupins and grower and weaner pellets but I felt that he should be looking better than he was so I decided to do a bit of research on the Hygain feeds as I had heard good reviews about them.
After visiting the website and reading the different reviews and fact sheets on each feed I decided to give HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN GROTORQUE a try. I was impressed with how fast I saw results, but what was even more surprising to me was how fast Veiko himself felt the results! He had been sluggish and uninterested in work, within a week he was more spiritedly, full of life and ready to go, his mental and physical condition visibly improving everyday the attached photo is a before and after of only one bag of HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN GROTORQUE being fed simultaneously.
I am very happy with Hygain feeds and won’t be using anyone else ever again, so THANK YOU!
Where other products failed, HYGAIN succeeded
(Nadine, Apr 2015)
Over the colder winter months, Mojo drops condition and A LOT of weight. I had tried other products but have found HYGAIN TRU GAIN to work well and make such a difference in such a short time. I have been very impressed with the results of using the HYGAIN TRU GAIN along side the HYGAIN HONEY B. Both feeds are of high quality and found that neither make my horse hot or fizzy. I have recommended both feeds to numerous amounts of people and will continue to use HYGAIN feeds as i have never once been disappointing. Thank you HYGAIN!
Yes, she can look even better!
(Janelle, Mar 2015)
We feed all of our ponies Hygain and have for many years but I wanted to say how impressed I am with HYGAIN TRU GAIN Most of our ponies are on HYGAIN ZERO but our RP Brooklyn Lodge Bumble Bee has been a much harder keeper but since starting on TRU GAIN has just blossomed. Please see attached before photo early in the season compared to last weekend where she took out supreme champion led RPSBS show pony – Tasmanian All-Breed Championships.
Thanks for the great products!
Noticeable results in only 3 weeks
(Shari, Mar 2015)
I was seriously struggling with the condition of my 4yo part arabian mare after being broken in. I was using another feed recommended for weight gain with little to no results. After doing some research I decided to try HYGAIN SHOWTORQUEe and have not looked back! I saw noticeable results within three weeks and she did not become hot or fizzy.
I have now added HYGAIN TRU GAIN for that finishing touch, and she has never been so shiny! I am so happy I changed to Hygain feeds the quality is so high and the products actually work! The before and after photos are only 4 weeks apart and show the difference Hygain feeds have made to my horse.
From nearly dead to a beautiful shinning happy mare
(Kylie, Mar 2015)
This is a before and after shot of our 6 year old mare we rescued. This is after 8 weeks on Hygain. We could see a difference within 1 week though and decided to stick to it. The coat and everything is amazing. She was from nearly dead to a beautiful shinning happy mare. Also her being a windsucker makes it harder but the hygain feeds are keeping her weight on and making her a very happy horse. We had her on HYGAIN TRU GAIN, HYGAIN FIBRESSENTIAL and HYGAIN HONEY B.
We have been feeding HYGAIN now for six months to all our horses and I will never look back to other feeds.
(Debbie, Mar 2015)
Thank you, thank you, thank you HYGAIN! Not only for your wonderful feeds but also for your amazing service! Toby is a station bred stock horse, who has worked hard and faithfully all his life, nothing special, just a lovely old man who deserves a happy and healthy retirement. Sadly he didn’t cope with the latest dry spell and that was looking doubtful. I happened to be in the right place at the right time, bring him home in December last year, as you can see in an awful state.
After seeing the vet and making sure Toby was healthy (other than his poor body condition), I started looking for the right thing to feed him. Our local feed shop recommended to have a look at HYGAIN. So I got online, emailed Toby’s particulars to you and received a dietary recommendation, which I have stuck to like glue ever since. Adam Rice recommended TRU GAIN and TRU-BREED, other than the nutritional value, I was really happy with the vitamin and mineral component, as we have oxalate pasture. He has been on it now for a little over 2 months. Amazing, thoughtful service. I honestly rave about you to anyone who will listen. It may be that I am being a bit sentimental, but I honestly believe you saved a life…..good job.
I thought that by contacting you, other than expressing my genuine belief in your services, maybe someone else would see it and do the same for another horse. Turning a sad story to a really happy ending. Toby’s high point is the yummy food he will be eating for the rest of his life!!!
At lightning speed to coat shine
(Rhiannon, Feb 2015)
“Segreto” aka Sid got Hygain feed from the get go, and progress was good until I discovered HYGAIN TRU GAIN and then it went at lightning speed! Within days he had this beautiful coat shine. The first photo was taken 4 month ago when I got him, he had been spelling and enjoying being a paddock pony for a few months after racing! The after picture shows him eating his TRU GAIN and HONEY B out of his Hygain feed bag
From racehorse to relaxed equestrian horse
(Sam, November 2014)
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!
(The photo’s attached are four weeks apart.)
A brilliant recommendation
(Louise, October 2014)
Here are two pictures of my TB horse “Pounce”
After talking to both Sarah and Wendy Richards owners of Champion Equestrian Rotorua, NZ they both recommended that I add HYGAIN TRU GAIN to “Pounces” diet, these are the results after only three weeks.
From thin to moderate in 3 weeks
(Kira, September 2014)
I would like to show you the amazing result I have had with HYGAIN TRU GAIN. 3weeksago I purchased my future show hack. He arrived not in the best of conditions, (weighing only 458kg as you can see from the pictures) Peter has now been on HYGAIN TRU GAIN for 3 weeks and weight is pouring on!! If he continues with the amazing result, Peter will be heading out to compete this show season. Simple loving and recommending Hygain!
What a difference in only 3 weeks!
(Jordan, July 2014)
Hi, just thought I’d send through the difference HYGAIN TRU GAIN and HYGAIN BALANCED has made in 3-4 weeks. This is my rising 4yro and rapidly growing, but I am so happy that every time I take his covers off he looks better and better!
He had been struggling to gain and hold condition and I was recommended HYGAIN TRU GAIN by a friend who swears by it. I am a self confessed sceptic when it comes to feeds/supplements like this and I dislike changing and adding things, but I couldn’t be happier! Nothing has changed in his diet apart from the addition of Tru Gain, and in two weeks his topline is very noticeably filling out and his ribs are beginning to cover. I also thought I’d add some to my 7yro Eventers feed to see if it did anything to him (hugely reactive to some feeds/additives). Nothing apart from his topline also improving! I am also starting to see more shine on what were very dull clipped coats.
A life changing recommendation
(Raquel G., Mar 2014)
I would just like to say how happy my horses are on the HYGAIN products you recommended, I cannot believe how much weight ‘Wellstone’ has put on in the last month since starting him on HYGAIN EQUINE SENIOR and HYGAIN TRU GAIN, he looks fantastic, I have attached a couple of pictures of him today and one from when I got him end of last year the transformation is amazing, thank you for your all your help!
Jazz's sad story with a happy ending
(Abbie, Dec 2013)
Celtic jazz (jazz) was an unsuccessful racehorse & after 3 starts for 3 dead lasts she was retired from racing in January this year. She unfortunately went to a terrible new home and was left to become completely emaciated, lice ridden/greasy heel/rain scald/untreated wire cuts etc…
She suffered from choke the day she arrived from trying to eat hay, so it took about 7-10 days to build her up to 2 hard feeds & hay as she wouldn’t eat it. Jazz is being fed a combination of HYGAIN TRU GAIN, HYGAIN SHOWTORQUE, chaff, hay and pasture. She currently does ground work/lunging with Jazz and will start back under saddle soon.
I have been using your products for years & constantly recommend them for others as I find them great for all of my horses ranging from ponies to thoroughbreds & varying ages from mares with foals through to 29yo.
What Tru Gain has done for Jazz is what has impressed us & cemented that Hygain is quality feed! Thank you!
(Rikki, July 2013)
I bred this beautiful filly named Flame who was raised as a herd horse with just oaten and grass hay for additional roughage. Flame was always handled, wormed and healthy but never rugged or hard fed until I decided I wanted to show her.
I got plenty of put downs and strange looks when I said my filly was going to be shown, but I knew what lay underneath that fluff and fat belly. Flame’s parents are both true to type Halter horses and Flame is no different but just needed a helping hand to get into shape.
Flame has been on HYGAIN TRU BREED and when in show prep she also got some HYGAIN TRU GAIN. She has since been green broken and has grown again! Flame went from looking like a yearling to looking like a mature 2 year old in a short time.
The before photo was taken in September 2012 and the after photo at the Victorian Paint Horse Association State Show in May 2013 ( photos are 6 months apart she looked like this only 12 weeks down the track).
