Be empowered with the knowledge you are feeding your horse with the correct nutrition!

Would your horse benefit from a personalized equine nutrition program?

If any of the descriptions below fit your horse or herd, I can help you out! Let me create a specific, optimized, balanced nutrition programme to fit your horse’s needs.


Performance and competition horses

Equine athletes require proper muscle development, endurance and the correct dietary fuel to perform optimally.

I will work with you to create a program for your horse that ensures the optimum energy level, ideal body condition and delivers all dietary requirements necessary to optimize performance in your discipline.


Metabolic or health issues are present that require dietary managment

EMS, PPID, RER, PSSM, insulin dysregulation, colic, laminitis, allergies, developmental orthopaedic disease, diarrhoea, etc.

Balanced nutrition is critical in these cases and I can help your horse develop a plan that allows your horse to thrive and overcome health issues. I can also work directly with your vet if necessary to develop the best plan for your horse.


Weight gain or loss issues

My programmes provide a daily caloric target specific to your horse’s unique metabolism, environment, and goal for a healthy body condition. This process requires a slow careful approach to feeding and requires several months of monitoring. There is a healthy way to gain or lose weight and I’m here to help.


Horses experincing a significant life change or development such as: breeding and lactating mares, growing foals and senior horses

Young growing horses need a safe and steady growth curve to reach their genetic potential.

The nutrition of a breeding mare is crucial for the development and performance potential of their foals, both whilst gestating and lactating as the foal grows.

Senior horses have unique needs based on dental, joint, gut and muscle changes as they age.

The nutrient demands of these different stages in life are different from that of a mature horse. I can develop a correctly balanced programme, especially for your horse.


You have a new horse or have new grazing

When a horse moves to a new owner/ rider and to a different grazing pasture the microbial environment of its gut will be affected. Specifically, your horse’s pasture species, forage, feed, companions, and environment will all be different – these changes easily contribute to gastric upset in the horse.

A careful diet transition plan to maintain a healthy gut environment and body condition and minimize gastric discomfort is the absolute best strategy for your new horse.

Changes in hay or chaff availability mean you need to consider feed alternatives

Nutrition on the Move Programme

DL Equine Nutrition on the Move Programme

The nutrition programme is designed for empowered equestrians travelling for competition.

*Are you and your horse competing this summer?

*Do you plan on travelling away from home for competition?

Then this nutrition programme is designed specifically for your horse’s needs!

Increased work, competition and travel all attribute to stress on a horse’s gut and body. This stress results in loose stools, weight loss, decreased energy and recovery time and increased risk of colic. Outcome = decreased performance.

For your horse to perform at its optimum the gut microbiota needs to be kept happy, healthy and in variety.

To feed your horse from the inside out is to enable your horse to achieve its ultimate health, even in circumstances such as being away from the normal pasture and environment of home.

This programme is for your horse this competition season!

Get a head start on the rest of the crowd:

What you receive on this program:

An individually formulated nutrition programme for training and riding at home.

PLUS an individual feeding plan for Travel AND Away from home competition.

Qualified Equine Herbal Medicine Practitioner

Herbal Prescriptions DL Equine

This system is one of classical herbal medicine, treating each horse holistically to return balance and harmony to its body. It’s all about treating each horse as an individual and stimulating its own powerful healing abilities.

Many of our modern pharmaceutical drugs come from isolating the unique compounds found in herbs. The difference when using a herb is that you get no potentially nasty side effects of single drugs and all the benefits of combining all the effective compounds held in the whole plant.

As a qualified practitioner, I can prescribe high potency practitioner only herbal extracts. These are liquid extract forms of the herbs of human medicinal quality, with guaranteed provenance, that are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream without having to go through the digestive system.

I prescribe the most effective specific herbs, which work together, to treat each individual disease, illness and injury.

Dosage methods are non-invasive, as they’re offered orally and quickly accepted by horses.

As well as being a more powerful form of herbal treatment, liquid herbal extracts have a longer shelf life (around four years) than dried herbs (around two years).

Herbal treatments typically last for one to three months. For some conditions that need to be managed rather than healed, like osteoarthritis, treatment is ongoing. Conditions that can be aided with herbal medicine are laminitis, arthritis, nervousness, mare hormonal issues, respiratory allergies and gut ulcers.

Herbal extract dosages are usually a very small amount of 5-10 ml per dose, and most horses get used to their herbal treatment quickly. Bottles are 500ml.

Enquire by email for an individually formulated herbal prescription for your horse.
