Race horses are feed a diet of high energy foods such as oat, however feeding a horse before they work is not a good idea is it can cause colic so they are not feed before they race as they could die.

Do dressage horses eat different from race horses?

Yes they do because race horses eat things that make them have a little bit more energy. Sometimes, most commonly do. It really depends on the horse. Like the person above me said, they add more energy to the feed, a horse may be rearing and ready to go that day, or night before, so they actually do normal feed. A dressage horse is just about the same as a race horse, they both do a lot of work, so they still need the energy.
