Whatever discipline you’re in I find that feeding is one of the most important factors that you can manage and control well. I use Baileys Horse Feeds out of choice as I really find the quality of the feed reflects in the way my horses look, behave and act.
I find that having a great nutritionist to work with is always a bonus, as their knowledge and expertise is valuable to making sure the horses perform at their best. I use Laura Gibbins she comes to the yard, assess and monitors my horses, we discuss the level of energy they need and how we can achieve the condition without giving them excess energy.
I need my showjumpers to be focused so I try my best to keep the sharp ones on a very low starch but high oil diet, this is so I can keep the weight without the added silliness.
