Nutrition

With so much marketing information out there about feeding your horse, it is hard to understand what is best. We offer impartial equine nutrition advice and reviews on some of the products we stock and use. Through our partnership with Lickley Horses, our products are used and tests in international dressage competitions from prelim to championship level. Through our partnership with Kingswood Equestrian Centre we have years of experience offering nutritional advice to sport and leisure horses in our rehabilitation programme.
