Feeds and Feeding

Equine Feeds and Feeding are a minefield that often confuse horse owners, professional and amateur alike. Every brand is fighting for your attention and often as a result your horse is the loser. High protein, low protein, high carbs, low carbs, high starch, low starch etc. Where on earth does it all end!? We review and test every brand in the store to ensure that we know it does in practise, what it says it does in the advertising. We also discuss some of the common problems in equine feeding and some of the myths that exist on a practical level, helping you to make a more informed decision away from the marketing. The main brands we discuss are Cavalor and PAVO as our experience tells us these are two of the best on the market. Other brands do, of course, exist but are no in use with our partners
