Imagine how it would feel to have a horse that did not suffer from health issues, gut problems, skin or respiratory allergies or bad hooves?

Imagine how you would feel knowing you were spending your hard-earned money wisely and not throwing it away on feed stuffs your horse didn’t actually need?

That would feel incredible right??

As a qualified horse nutritionist, I can fast track your horse to optimum health with a preventative nutrition feeding programme.

Feed your horse from the inside out!

Welcome along to the DL Equine Nutrition Crew! I specialise in transformation programmes.

I love when a client comes to me and you are having a problem with your horse, maybe its overweight, underweight, perhaps has a metabolic issue or a gut ulcer.

I can take your horse from that state into optimal health, optimal body condition on a programme that is completely balanced and will promote health and longevity in your horse!

My favourite part of being a nutritionist is watching that transformation in your horse. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a horse that was not doing well, not performing its best and helping you as the owner bring your horse up to its genetic potential and optimal performance through nutrition.

Everything we can do through nutrition to help your horse I can guide you through!

Nutrition programmes are formulated specifically for your horse as an individual, providing the correct gut microbiome to allow your horse to thrive!
Combining my knowledge, qualifications and up to date research, we can overcome health and performance problems.


DL Equine offers the unique service of a diet tailor made to suit your horse’s needs.


Giving your horse a well-balanced specific nutrition programme will allow you to:

  • Provide an individual feed system that supplies the essential nutrients your horse’s exact needs for energy, growth, body maintenance and repair.
  • Provide your horse’s body with preventive nutrition, which includes a beneficial diet with carefully caluclated amounts that will first treat, then ultimately prevent, illness and injury.

The result? – A happy healthy horse, fewer vet and feed bills.


Get in front of horse health issues now with an optimum nutrition programme, don’t get into the scenario where you need the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff.

Sound like what you’re after? Let’s do it!

Contact Dale today for a Nutrition Programme with ‘real world’ advice backed by up to date scientific research.

Distance consultations easily done via photos and videos.
