Is Your Horse Getting The Right Nutrition For Their Bodyweight, Lifestyle and Working Needs?
Horses are as different as you and I. Some are active athletes working daily. Others work even longer hours on ranches and farms. Some are pasture pets that just get the occasional ride. Some horses are chubby and stay fat on very little, others may be underweight and struggling to keep a good coat. A STABLE CONNECTION can give you the knowledge you are looking for to keep each of the horses in your care on the right diet for their individual needs — and thus have happier and healthier horses, able to perform their optimal best! The class was developed in collaboration with a Board of Advisors, including an independent equine nutritionist, an equine surgeon & criticalist, a hoof specialist, and other experts.
