Optimising performance through wholistic health and therapy

Dietary Analysis

A horses stomach evolved to graze, and small amounts of forage frequently is the ideal diet.  With the enormous amount of choice at your fodder store of grains, premixed feeds and supplements, it can be hard to sift through the information and advice to work out what is best for your horse.

My first tip - feed more hay!!  Most horses are able to live comfortably and healthily off of pasture or hay.  A general vitamin/mineral supplement can be added but my basic advice to people is to feed an appropriate amount of hay/pasture to keep a horse's weight in a healthy range. 

This isn't always appropriate if your horse is either overweight, or gets enough work, that they cannot maintain their weight from forage alone.  This is when you may need some extra guidance.

I offer 2 different dietary analysis depending on your circumstance
