Product description

Keep your horse occupied for longer and support their digestive health with this 1kg high fibre, low sugar fibre block, enriched with lucerne and spearmint. Now with even less sugar* but still packed full of natural benefits.

Munch blocks can help in many ways:

  • As a boredom breaker.
  • Encouraging natural foraging in the stable when turnout is limited.
  • Providing a healthy, low sugar but high fibre snack.
  • To slow food intake with its highly compressed nature.
  • As a smaller (and tastier!) alternative to hay when travelling.
  • Keeping horses occupied at competition.

*When compared to other varieties in the Equilibrium munch range.

What inspired the Litemunch fibre block?

As a company focused on the horses’ wellbeing, we thought it was only right to look at the mental and nutritional wellbeing of our equine friends too! Litemunch is ideal for those on a low sugar or controlled sugar diet, and those who could benefit from digestive support.

What is in Litemunch?

Not just a simple fibre block, Litemunch fibre blocks are made from lush lucerne which is super tasty, nutritious, and ideal to support digestive health.

It also contains additional spearmint, known for its digestive benefits and appetising taste.

Who is it for?

All horses can enjoy a Litemunch fibre block due to its high fibre and low sugar content, including those prone to laminitis. It is particularly useful:

  • As a boredom breaker.
  • Encouraging natural foraging in the stable when turnout is limited.
  • To support the digestive system.
  • To slow food intake with its highly compressed nature.
  • As a smaller (and tastier!) alternative to hay when travelling.
  • Keeping horses occupied at competition.
  • Horses on box rest.
  • As a distraction when companions go out.

Ways to feed Litemumch hay blocks.

There is no right or wrong way, it’s whatever works for your horse.

As it’s so tasty, most horses are keen to try gobble it down. Feeding Litemunch in a specialised munch net can help slow down those eager feeders. You can also place it in the middle of their normal haynet, so they spend time trying to hunt down the tasty treat!

For oldies whose teeth don’t quite do as well as they used to, or all horses in the winter, soaking the munch block will see it evolve into a warm, tasty bowl full of delicious goodness, right in front of your eyes!

It can of course be fed in the field or stable on its own on the ground or in a bowl. The highly compressed nature of the block will naturally slow eating down and act as a boredom breaker too!
