We are here to make a difference to horses and their owners around the world because every horse matters to us.
Our journey began in 2010
Our passion for whole horse health
Forageplus horse feeding service is founded on a passion for the whole horse. We care about every horse and every horse owner and have a commitment to sharing our learning journey and our knowledge with all equine owners so that they can choose the best possible care for their horses.
No matter what you do with your horse we are here to care about you, support you, teach you, search for you and help you find the path to a healthy, robust horse with whom you will share and enjoy many years of fun, success and happiness.
Training, posture, muscular & skeletal health
The whole horse
We are passionate about correct horse training for functional posture, muscular and skeletal health. We are experts in healthy hooves and environments to create correct metabolism in those tricky good doer horses. If it needs to be learnt to keep horses healthy then we keep digging until an expert around the world can give us the knowledge that we then share with you.
Scientific Forage Analysis
Looking at the forage
Central to our nutrition service is the philosophy that forage exerts a significant influence on the total diet of equines because of the huge amounts consumed. Horse feeding guided by scientific analysis and testing grass, hay or haylage is vital to ensure optimum health. This is because even though the amounts of some nutrients consumed are in milligram quantities their effect on horse health relative to their low concentration is huge.
Testing hay, haylage or grass to determine correct horse feeding related to the forage eaten is the best way to support and maintain the best health in all horses regardless of age, size or work level.
Intelligent Horse Feeding
Affordable, bespoke, targeted horse feeding
We believe an affordable, ‘forage focused’™ horse feeding approach is more appropriate for all horses, from those doing eventing and endurance to those prone to laminitis and skin allergies.
Although owners are often worried about low levels of minerals it can also be those minerals that are in excess which can cause imbalance. Our horse feeding philosophy takes into account not just deficiencies but also excesses.
Matched to Grass and Hay
A ‘Forage Focused’™ horse feeding approach
Often the forage fed comes from a very limited area, over time imbalances accumulate and horses may start to suffer bouts of trouble which may be attributed to other causes. For all horses, we believe the greatest performance can be achieved through our forage focussed, balanced mineral horse feeding approach.
