Which Pryde's feeds do you use and why do you like them? 

EasiRide and EasiResult - After much research we decided on Pryde's because it's a premium feed and my horses thrive on the Extruded Formula. We have fantastic results with both products - EasiRide we chose for the hotter horses and EasiResult gave us great conditioning results.
