The importance of feeding your horse correctly by Megan Packer.

Understanding the appropriate foods to feed your horse is crucial for them to maintain a healthy lifestyle. As most horse owners will know, horses are designed to eat consistently throughout the day. This means that it is better to feed them small amounts more often, as opposed to letting them consume large amounts twice per day. This method mimics how they would feed in the wild and helps benefit their behavior.   Monitoring your horse as they eat is also important.

Louise Doherty's October Update

So it’s time for my season round up including some sad new and some exciting news. This season has been an emotional roller-coaster starting by jumping double clear in our first three BE90s, clear XC and PB dressage in our first four BE100s and qualifying for the Scottish Eventing Championships. I set out my goals at the beginning of the season to jump DCs at BE90 and to step up to BE100 and I had met them all by June – Corky was an absolute superstar, trying his heart out at every turn. Unfortunately as most people know he became lame in the dressage warm-up at the Scottish Champs so we withdrew him and after a trip to the Dick...
