Why We Love It
The steaming process rids hay of up to 99% of the mold, dust, bacteria and allergens found in hay — even in hay that looks beautiful and is top quality in terms of nutrient content. These inhalable irritants lead to respiratory issues that affect over 80% of active sport horses, often without obvious symptoms.
Many vets consider respiratory challenges to be the top cause of otherwise unexplained poor performance. Which is not surprising. As anyone with even mild asthma or allergies knows — especially this time of year — easy breathing is critical whether you’re galloping a 5* cross-country course or taking a leisurely trail ride.
Steaming also adds water to the diet for better digestion and hydration. Unlike soaking hay, it does not leach nutrients and it’s easy to incorporate into the horse keeping routine. Horses love its great taste and smell, helping hard keepers keep weight on and get the energy and nutrients they need.
Athletux is giving away a HG One Hay Steamer, the smallest of Haygain’s three models. It’s perfect for feeding one or two horses and traveling with it is a breeze.
