Information about the product:
Cavalor Vitamino (20 kg)
Protein balancer for an outstanding muscling - with vitamins and minerals
- Supports the development of muscle mass and improves the top line. The specific composition of Cavalor VitAmino offers an amino acid profile very similar to that of the horse’s muscle protein.
- Provides a balanced amino acid profile from highly digestible proteins. More important than the content of protein is the content of digestible protein. Each source has a different digestibility. For example, the protein in soy is 50-80% digestible, while the protein in hay is a lot less digestible. The more digestible the protein, the less protein a horse needs to consume to obtain sufficient amino acids. Cavalor VitAmino contains highly digestible protein sources, including soy, potato protein and wheat middlings, so that the total amount of protein can remain limited.
Supports muscle mass improves topline:
Supports the development of muscle mass and improves the top line. cavalor vitamino supports muscle retention and helps build up your horse’s muscles. the protein the muscles are made up of is a chain of interlinked amino acids. in addition to sufficient building materials, which the horse gets from high-quality protein that is digested in the small intestine, sufficient energy is also needed to allow the process of building up muscle mass to continue. an adapted exercise schedule is essential for maintaining and developing muscles, in addition to the right nutrition. this is because muscle breakdown occurs during exercise. small tears appear in the muscle fibres. this triggers the body to make new muscle fibres. cavalor vitamino provides the amino acids needed so that muscle recovery and build-up can take place together with effort. in addition to the right feed, an appropriate exercise schedule is essential for muscle maintenance and development.
Highly digestible protein balanced amino acid profile:
Provides a balanced amino acid profile from highly digestible proteins. the specific composition of cavalor vitamino offers an amino acid profile very similar to that of the horse’s muscle protein. essential amino acids, including lysine, methionine, leucine, etc. must be absorbed through food. cavalor vitamino consists of high-quality protein sources including soy, alfalfa and potato protein that are digested in the small intestine and broken down into amino acids. the amount of each and the correct ratio (also called the amino acid profile) of these amino acids determine proper muscle development. just like puzzle pieces that together make one puzzle, for muscle tissue to develop, a sufficient amount of the amino acids needed must be available in the right proportions. if even one amino acid is missing, the process of muscle building is slowed down.

Contains highly absorbable vitamins, trace elements and minerals to maintain the nutritional balance of the ration.

Directions for Use:
Cavalor VitAmino is recommended for horses that require more muscle mass.
Note: horses that are too lean have difficulty or cannot gain muscle mass. In such a case, consult a nutritionist or veterinarian first.
The recommended dose varies depending on the situation.
For sport horses, a daily dose of 100 g - 200 g/100 kg body weight is recommended in addition to the current ration. The dose is determined by the training intensity, among other things.
- Light work: 100 - 150 g/100 kg body weight
- Moderate work: 125 - 175 g/100 kg body weight
- Heavy work: 150 - 200 g/100 kg body weight
For adult horses that do little or no work, a daily dose of 100 g - 125 g/100 kg body weight is recommended inaddition to the roughage given. Cavalor VitAmino contains all the vitamins and minerals needed to meet the minimum requirements in addition to roughage. The dose depends, among other things, on the quality of the roughage and the protein content of the ration.
For older or geriatric horses, a daily dose of 50 g - 100 g/100 kg body weight is recommended in addition to roughage and Cavalor Strucomix Senior.
It is recommended to divide doses above 125 g/100 kg BW/day over multiple meals.
For an optimal effect, a minimum period of 4 weeks’ use is needed. Do not give the standard dose for longer than 12 weeks. If more prolonged use is necessary, please halve the dose.
Introduce VitAmino gradually into the diet
Peter Bollen had just graduated as a bio-engineer and finished his thesis "Nutrition of the sport horse", when an offer fell on the bus from a Belgian company whose director, Peter's two most important passions, shared, "Equestrian sports" and "horse feeding". At one of their very first moments of consultation, the two decided to launch a completely new range of nutritional products for top performing horses.
Over the next two decades, Cavalor developed into a global leader and reference in the field of nutrition for top sport horses. In recent years, Cavalor has helped thousands of owners and riders and meanwhile, everyone who practices equestrian sports at the highest level is convinced of the proposition: The right food + The best care= Top performance.
Cavalor products are now available in 50 countries and are used and promoted by champions in the various disciplines of equestrian sports. Cavalor stands for a complete line of horse nutrition, supplements and care products. All these products are the result of years of intense research and development, tests, selection of the best ingredients, a strictly vasubsites/cavalor.com/subsites/cavalor.com/httpdocseled production method and continuous quality controls.
Innovation, Quality and Result:
Cavalor stands for Innovation, Quality and Result. We are committed to creating the best possible and most effective horse feed in the world. What drives us are the health, performance and happiness of the horse. From the first steps as a foal to his or her retirement.
Cavalor is the only horse feed company in the world that wants to go further to what they call "the last mile" at Cavalor. You may find it far-fetched or exaggerated, but we at Cavalor are convinced that using Cavalor products creates a special and pleasant feeling. For the horse of course, but also for those who work with the horses on a daily basis. For example, we firmly believe that the way in which food supplements are presented and offered is just as important for the horse as for the person who takes care of and feeds the horses at 6 am. We believe that opening a bag of Cavalor feed should create a pleasant visual sensation and that the aroma released at that time should allow the water to enter the mouth. With the horse but also with the groom!
Biggest names in equestrian sports:
In its twenty years as market leader, the Cavalor brand has attracted the biggest names from all the different equestrian disciplines. We have only one method for this. A range of products that require little or no advertising. After all, the results speak for themselves. Cavalor products improve (in a measurable way) the performance level and well-being of the very best horses and can easily withstand the highest possible quality standards.
Cavalor is proud to have an impressive number of world and Olympic champions, medallists and World Cup winners on its customer list. They are all supporters and ambassadors of the Cavalor brand. The success of all these champions is partly due to the excellent management in terms of health and fitness of their horses. Their performance and the fact that they rely on Cavalor products for the feeding and care of their top horses means the very best advertising for Cavalor!
Until 2000, the Cavalor range consisted only of supplements and grooming products. But because innovation is one of Cavalor's most important values, Cavalor decided to use the existing technology and know-how in a completely new range of horse feeds. Thanks to a strategic partnership with Versele-Laga, Cavalor feeds were launched on the market and almost immediately gained the same excellent reputation as Cavalor supplements.
In 2003, Peter and his closest partners bought the Cavalor business from the parent company with a so-called management buy-out. From now on, Cavalor stood on its own two feet. Meanwhile, Cavalor is distributed in more than 50 countries around the world and horses are supplied with Cavalor products in every corner of the world. In 2008, Cavalor also gained a foothold in the Middle East, where equestrian sport is one of the fastest growing sports.
The following year, a North American department was set up to serve a particularly large and important market. Michael Pollard, the current CEO of Cavalor North America, began using Cavalor products when he competed in Europe in the summer of 2010. One of his horses, Wonderfull Will, has been eating bad to very bad for a long time. His disturbed diet in combination with the heavy competition schedule caused headaches.
Michael contacted Peter Bollen. He immediately started working with Michael and Wonderfull Will and suggested a specific feeding program for Will. The transformation did not take long. Will was crazy about the new feed, after a few weeks he kicked on the door of his barn, if the feed took too long. He had never done that in his whole life. It got even better. The whole muscle tone changed so much that people in the German training center wondered out loud what food he was on and what had caused this positive metamorphosis. When we asked Michael what he finds so attractive about the Cavalor feed, he talked resolutely about its high quality, low molasses content and natural characteristics.
Earlier by chance, Michael Pollard and his wife Nathalie had been looking forward to investing in the equestrian industry for some time. It seemed as if fate had decided it that way. The still young North American department of Cavalor could certainly use some help and Michael and Nathalie wanted to be part of the process. At the end of 2010, the couple made a deal and became partners in the Cavalor story. Michael is CEO of Cavalor North America, Nathalie is Managing Partner. Their mission is to convince North America of the uniqueness and high digestibility of this special feed.
Cavalor has a long tradition when it comes to supporting equestrian sports at the highest level. We are particularly proud that in 2010 we were the official Health and Nutrition partner of the Belgian team at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Kentucky. In 2012, Cavalor was the proud partner and supplier of the Belgian & Saudi Arabia team at the Olympic Games in London.
More than 20 years after his birth, Cavalor is alive and kicking and a world player that we can unhesitatingly call a world leader in equine nutrition for sport horses.
