We welcomed back internationally renowned clinical equine nutritionist Dr Teresa Hollands to share some of the science behind equine nutrition and highlight the key areas we need to be aware of when feeding our horses. Teresa was joined by our Assistant Centre Manager at Glenda Spooner Rescue and Rehoming Centre Sara Jerman. Sara explained some of the practical ways we can manage our horses’ nutritional intake, including real examples of what we do at World Horse Welfare, and how to ensure we are doing our best to keep our horses at a healthy weight.
Both Teresa and Sara have spent their lives working with a range of horses and owners, and know first-hand the challenges that we face as owners when it comes to maintaining our horses’ weight. Although much of the information shared will focus on ways to reduce your horse’s weight even if your horse or pony isn’t prone to weight gain, there should still be lots of useful information and interesting discussion for you to enjoy.
