Understanding the anatomy of the digestive system is an important step in maintaining a balanced and healthy diet for your horse.
We ask our horses to perform workloads that require more than just grass to sustain them, we keep them domesticated with limited ability to forage for their own nutritional needs and in modern-day sport we push our horses to their physiological extremes, so it is up to us to ensure we are providing them with the right feeding and nutrition to keep them happy, comfortable, healthy and able to perform.
In this seminar, we are delighted to be joined by the well-known independent nutritionist Clare MacLeod.
To start, in true Horses Inside Out style, Gillian takes you on an anatomical journey through the gastrointestinal tract. Clare, who provides unbiased, dietary information and is passionate about nutrition, health and fitness then looks at the theory of feeding and in her second presentation examines hows to put theory into practice and look at a range of feed plans suitable for different types of horses. Veterinarian and gut health specialist Liam Gamble, gives an overview of the equine microbiota, the past, present and future perspectives.
