New Look. Same trust.

SafeChoice feeds now have a fresh bag design to go with their added benefits. We’ve also streamlined our lineup to make sure we’re bringing only the best to you and your horses. Best of all, current customers can switch to our updated formulas seamlessly.


  • Why did you combine SafeChoice Original and SafeChoice Perform into SafeChoice All Life Stages?

    It’s hard to find a feed that meets the needs of all ages and activity levels in your barn, so we created a formula that is nutritionally balanced for a range of horses. SafeChoice All Life Stages keeps the same calorie level as Perform and same benefits as Original, and then adds value to both with improved palatability, lower % NSC, Nutri-Bloom Advantage, and Digestive Shield. Whether you have an intensive training program, compete with top athletes, rescue and rehabilitate horses, have a lesson barn or hit the trails, SafeChoice All Life Stages fits your feeding program.

  • Do I need to transition my horse gradually to the new formula?

    If you were previously feeding SafeChoice, you can transition seamlessly to the updated SafeChoice. If you have any picky eaters, you might mix the old and new for a day or two.

  • Is Digestive Shield unique to Nutrena?

    Yes. SafeChoice is the only feed with Digestive Shield – our proprietary blend of controlled starch, pre + pro + postbiotics and calcite that supports your horse’s gut health and immune system – only from Nutrena. All SafeChoice feeds (except Maintenance) now have Digestive Shield to give your horses an extra layer of protection that they can’t get anywhere else.

  • How is All Life Stages able to meet the needs of my working and non-working horses?

    By adjusting the recommended feeding rates down to a maintenance level, you can reduce the total daily calorie and nutrient intake for non-working horses. If that is still too many calories, please consider our Empower Topline Balance diet balancer to provide the essential protein, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace minerals with even less calories.

  • What are my options if I was feeding SafeChoice Perform Textured or SafeChoice Mare & Foal Textured?

    We have discontinued the textured versions of SafeChoice Mare & Foal and Perform. SafeChoice Mare & Foal or SafeChoice All Life Stages are great alternatives for these products. If you prefer a textured performance feed, please consider ProForce Fuel or ProForce Fuel XF.

  • Will my horse eat this product?

    Horses LOVE our new formula. And by love, we mean bucket-licking good.
