The Beachport Liquid Minerals Red Cap is formulated specifically to benefit horses after times of work or stress. With a combination of trace elements, electrolytes and amino acids suitable for the equine industry, the Red Cap liquid supplement for horses is designed to assist horses after strenuous work to bring them back up, to help with growing out young horses and also brood mares.

Application Methods

Red Cap can be used by pouring directly into the water trough or mixed with feed. Red Cap is designed for rehydration after strenuous work, not before. See below for further information on each application method.

Red Cap’s best method of application is via the water supply. When using Beachport Liquid Minerals products with cattle, sheep and goats we recommend using the Beachport Dispenser. However, because you will be using smaller amounts for horses, it is best to pour the dose straight into the water supply.

DOSE STEPS for multiple horses

  • Work out how many horses are on a water point and multiply by 20mls for mature horses or 10mls for younger and light horses.
  • Split the total amount in half and dose evenly in two applications over two days to ensure evenly dosed. Pour the amounts directly into the water supply.
  • For horses not in work, repeat the above process every two weeks for health and condition.


DOSE STEPS for an individual horse

  • Dose amount: 20mls for mature horses or 10mls for younger and light horses.
  • Pour the dose amount directly into the water supply.
  • For horses not in work, repeat the above process every two weeks for health and condition.
  • Mix the required amount of Red Cap with enough water to pour the mixture evenly onto feed.
  • Add an extra 10% of Red Cap to allow for wastage.
  • If you are dosing more than one horse, dose over two applications.
  • If you are dosing an individual horse, the dose can be applied directly onto feed in one application.

Key times of use

  • For horses not in work, Red Cap can be used year-round every two weeks to help maintain health and condition.
  • Directly after strenuous exercise for horses in work.
  • For racehorses, do not use within the two weeks before racing. Red Cap is designed for rehydration and recovery after strenuous work.


For best results for horses in work or stress:

  • 20mls of Red Cap for mature horses after strenuous exercise.
    20mls per horse, every two weeks. No more than 60mls in six weeks.
  • 10mls for younger and lighter horses every two weeks. No more than 30mls in six weeks.

Red Cap can be added to the water supply or mix with feed. Refer to application guidelines.
