Health & fitness information
All equestrians can help horses to stay healthy by taking simple steps to promote good hygiene and help prevent the spread of disease, both at the yard, and when out and about
Food and grazing
Like us, horse’s need a healthy, balanced diet, so it is important to understand their basic feeding requirements
Maintaining your horse at a healthy weight can be a real challenge and is a balancing act between providing the right diet, health care, exercise and management
It’s important for our horses’ wellbeing that we keep them at the optimum level of fitness for their age and individual state of health
Changing Routine and Diet
Horses thrive off a regular and consistent routine and any change to your horse’s routine needs to be made gradually to ensure the health of your horse is not compromised.
Teeth and equine dentistry
Undiagnosed dental problems are a major concern as they can seriously deteriorate unseen until the horse shows signs that there’s a problem
Horses have special tactile sensory hairs, known as whiskers. The whiskers on a horse play an important role in their sensory awareness system. These amazing sensory hairs have their own nerve and blood supply and help horses navigate their surroundings
