Copper (Cu) is an essential trace mineral that is required in the equine diet to support the proper function of many enzymes in the horse’s body.

These enzymes are involved in important tasks throughout the horse’s physiology including metabolism, organ function, detoxification processes, growth and more.

Having adequate copper levels allows optimal function of the enzymes in all cells of the horse’s body. This can contribute to overall well-being, better coat and hoof quality, energy metabolism, and much more.

Copper is important for iron metabolism, healthy connective tissue, energy production and antioxidant protection.

Copper deficiency can cause anemia and weakened blood vessels, bones, or joints in adult horses. In young growing animals, low levels of copper can cause abnormal bone and cartilage formation.
