Does your horse need to lose weight? Next week (27 February), Spillers will be hosting a free public webinar to give horse owners advice and tips to help their equines reach and maintain a healthy condition.

Taking place at 8pm, the one-hour session will be presented by Isabel Harker who is a nutrition advisor for the brand. She will be sharing practical guidance for shedding those extra pounds and maintaining optimal health.

“We will be referring to some of our latest knowledge and research on weight management and equine nutrition to bring you practical, actionable tips,” said Isabel. “We want to help you to provide a healthier, happier spring season for your equine companion and a less stressful time for you too!”

Topics will include:

  • Understanding obesity and excess weight gain: Discover the causes of equine obesity and how it can affect your horse’s overall health.
  • Weight and body condition monitoring: Find out how to effectively monitor your horse’s weight and body condition, crucial for their well-being.
  • Advice on how to provide a balanced diet while cutting calories.
  • Tips for restricting forage intake: Explore effective methods, like hay soaking, to control your horse’s forage intake without compromising their nutrition.

The webinar has been accredited with 6 AMTRA CPD points. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in equine nutrition provides equestrian industry professionals with the opportunity to keep their nutrition knowledge and skills up to date, in a formally recognised way.
