We all want to look after our horses the best we can. As horses age, their nutritional requirements also change and not always in the obvious ways. Digestive efficiency decreases, dental health and their ability to graze or eat hay can decrease significantly and they may develop conditions such as PPID (Cushings). During this session, we will unpack the common challenges of feeding horses over the summer months when pasture feed might be limiting and challenging to digest, especially if they have less than perfect dentition! Explore different types of feeds, and management practices to help maintain a healthy body condition, and find out how to adjust your horse’s feed and your management of pastures to take into account the season.

Expert Speakers include:

Dr Peter Huntington (Kentucky Equine Research)

David Nash (Kentucky Equine Research)
