Truly Field to Bucket Philosophy

Buckeye Nutrition believes the wholesome ingredients used in their formulas should follow the shortest path possible from the fertile North American fields where they are grown and harvested to your equine pal's feed bucket. This means that the ingredients maintain their optimum freshness and nutritional power come feeding time, offering the maximum health benefits for your horse's well-being. Thanks to trusted relationships with farmers, Buckeye Nutrition can help your pal enjoy the field-fresh nutrition he deserves, every day.

Science-Based Equine Nutrition

Science-Based Equine Nutrition

Every Buckeye Nutrition formula has been developed and lab-proven by expert equine nutritionists and professional animal scientists who know horses inside and out. Using a meticulous scientific approach, they labor in labs and test kitchens to bring your horse optimized, solution-based supplements and treats. These are backed by industry-leading research, and tailored to the diverse requirements of different breeds, horse types, and life stages—from the foal to the workhorse, athlete and farm companion.

100% Traceable Ingredients

Every ingredient in a Buckeye Nutrition treat or supplement can be traced back to its source—to the fertile Ohio soil where corn and soybeans are grown, or the Canadian plains where the premium oats are harvested. So you can trust that every soybean and kernel of corn or oat that goes into your horse's feed bucket has been grown with care, selected using the strictest quality standards and nutrient requirements, and sourced from only 100% traceable, certified suppliers in North America.

Whether as an everyday reward, during training, or to help promote healthy mobility with the joint support formula, your horse will love these tasty pellets. Plus, they're made with 100% traceable and North American sourced ingredients like apples, carrots, steamed oats and peppermint oil.

    Low feed rate

    By Jackie on Sep 11, 2021

    Works great for my older horse. Smells good and low feeding rate. When i first started Rusty on this I just fed this with a lb of Timothy pellets, as his "grain". However he started loosing weight. I added the finisher 25 to it and hes looking good. Even the combination of pellets, its still a low feed rate. He gets less than 3lbs (1.25 of this, 1lb of timothy and 0.5 of finisher) a day plus hay. He is doing well on it :)

    Buckeye horse feed and treats

    By HappyHorse on Aug 20, 2021

    My 21 year old quarter horse was diagnosed with insulin resistance last summer. I slowly changed her feed to a low starch, low sugar diet. I tried many popular brands sold at our local feed and tack stores but she disliked them all (ever seen a horse have a temper tantrum because they don't like their food, not pretty). And then I discovered Buckeye products, low sugar low starch pellets, treats and Senior Balancer! Happy Horse once again! Thank you Chewy for fast reliable service and thank you Buckeye.

    It looks great

    By Brenda on Sep 7, 2021

    My horse loves it. It has a nice aroma and was nice and fresh. I won't see the results it has on her for a month or so and will share my findings then.

    Great option for easy keepers

    By Pepper on Jan 19, 2021

    This is a great ration balancer for easy keepers. I had been feeding Empower Topline Balance Ration Balancer and supplementing with MSM and biotin, but Buckeye's balancer is not only comparable to Empower, it also has MSM and biotin already added. My easy keeper is doing great on just 1 lb of this balancer daily, and my hard keeper enjoys having this mixed into his feed as a protein supplement and for added palatability.

    Buckeye senior balancer

    By Susanne on Jan 23, 2021

    After a week of my 2 senior horses on this feed, they were more energetic and feeling happy and frisky. No need to purchase extra supplements for them, this feed does it all. Love the fast shipping and the price! Thanks chewy!

    Great, even for picky eaters

    By Petmanship on Sep 29, 2020

    This is the first ration balancer I’ve found that my senior pinto pony will eat! The pellets are very tiny (smaller than chicken feed) and are not tough to chew. I do add his loose salt and Supplements to this with a bit of water and stir. He loves it! I normally feed only Triple Crown products, but I drive over 80 miles round trip to get it where I am. Because this balancer’s nutritional content is similar, I may switch my other senior onto this too!

    Great balance for my chunky senior

    By HendriksGal on Sep 28, 2020

    As my seniors have gotten older and retired, they’ve gotten chunky sitting out in the pasture. I want to make sure that they are getting all their vitamins and minerals along with their smartpaks, so this is a great blancer for that! I tried other brands of balancers and my horses did not do as well on it.
