Blue Chip Feed and Equi-Excel Festival Cancelled

It is with great sadness that Blue Chip Feed & Equi-Excel announce the cancellation of this year's Blue Chip Feed Festival of Equestrianism 2020, scheduled to take place on 24th-27th September 2020. Whilst on lockdown we lost months of qualifying shows and events and despite exploring all the options the Festival will simply not be the wonderful fun filled packed event that we had planned for, owing to the limited numbers of people allowed on site.

The importance of continuing to feed a balancer during the grazing season.

Why is it important to continue feeding a balancer during the grazing season? We bust some myths and answer some common questions raised.   “I don’t need to feed a balancer in the summer as it will make my pony/horse fat” All Blue Chip balancers are low in calories (and all molasses free) and contain minimal levels of starch and sugar, with no added sugar.

These balancers support overall health, which can lead to improved mobility and burning of further calories.   For those on a calorie-controlled diet, Blue Chip can work...
