KER Equi-Jewel is a scientifically formulated, high-fat, low-starch and cool-energy feedstuff with added vitamin E, selenium and calcium. EQUI-JEWEL is the original, research proven stabilised rice bran conditioning supplement and the only conditioning supplement that offers the combination of high fat with minimal levels of oxidation, low starch and an effective amount of digestible fibre.
Equi-Jewel is specifically designed to nutritionally support the equine athlete by providing a highly palatable form of additional calories and protein to assist in building muscle, topline and maintaining condition.
Rice bran, as the name suggests comes from rice. Specifically, rice bran is the brown outer layer of the rice grain, the part that we remove to yield white rice. The bran portion of rice is one of the most nutritious parts of the kernel. It is an excellent source of fat, thiamine, niacin, vitamin B-6, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and fibre. For horses, one of the best things about rice bran is that it contains a high level of fat and is a wonderful addition to the diet where a high fat intake is desirable.
Removal of the brown layer of rice releases an enzyme called lipase which oxidises fat and turns the rice bran rancid. The oxidation of the fat occurs very quickly especially in warmer weather and results in a “soapy” after-taste which can be quite unpalatable to all but the greediest of horses. The rancid bran also contains damaging free radicals and reactive oxidative species. Subjecting the rice bran to heat and pressure (stabilisation) soon after its separation from the rice grain destroys the lipase. Without the destructive lipase enzyme, the fat content of rice bran (18-20%) is stabilised and this gives Equi-Jewel its proven palatability and long shelf life. EQUI-JEWEL is a stabilised rice bran supplement, ensuring premium quality and palatability.
Race horses, performance horses, show horses and sale preparation, breeding horses, especially good for poor doers and picky eaters, horses prone to tying-up, horses that get excited or fizzy on grain, and horses needing rapid weight gain.

"Full-fat, no grain, plenty of energy – I can’t rave about this feed enough! Kirby Park Irish Jester had stress founder from travel sickness from a plane ride in 2010, but he has now returned to work and competition at the four-star level and did it on EQUI-JEWEL and Barastoc competitor pellets. All the energy he needed came from these feeds, and I have had no fears of him foundering again at any stage.” -Megan Jones
“By feeding EQUI-JEWEL, not only do we feel that our horses stay in peak condition with shiny coats, but it also enables us to feed less grain whilst still maintaining high energy levels." -Brook Dobbin
“We have been feeding EQUI-JEWEL for years now and have always been very impressed in the results. We have Tango V on Equi-Jewel now and he loves it, he looks terrific and this feed allows him enough energy to cope with the Grand Prix work without being too much, as he is a hot sensitive horse, so it is very important to keep the balance right.” -Caroline Wagner
