Confused by Horse Nutrition?
(and don't know where to start?!?)

Are you hopelessly confused by horse nutrition? Or are you confused about one or two smaller aspects of it? You are not alone!

Just like the little guy below, you want help and reassurance that you are doing things right (or you wouldn't be searching the internet), but you also want to understand this stuff for yourself.

I understand, because I've been there.

You want the best for your horse, but understanding horse nutrition can be confusing...this website will help give you the knowledge you need and start you on your path.

You’ve probably been asking yourself some of these questions:

  • Where do I start?
  • What does my horse need?
  • How do I know if my feed is the best for my horse?
  • What does all that information on the feed bag mean?
  • What are all those ingredients? How do they affect my horse?

At one point I was asking myself the same questions. When I started researching to find answers, I was hopelessly lost.

The more I researched, the more I realized how little I knew, and the more questions I had.

The biggest problem was that no one knew MY horse and his situation...I didn’t want someone -- like that annoying feed salesman we've all met -- to tell me what THEY thought MY horse needed, I wanted someone to tell me how to figure out what my horse needed, and in words I could understand!

Understanding the items on the list below helps you understand horse nutrition, so you can relax and know that you are feeding your horse to his highest potential!

Things that every horse owner should understand include:

  • How the horse digestive system works
  • Roughages and why they are essential
  • Other feedstuffs and if your horse needs them
  • The roles of major nutrients, vitamins, and minerals
  • How to read and understand the information on a feed tag

It sounds pretty simple, but as you probably know already, it can be daunting when you start trying to figure it out. The good news is that it IS easy to understand, once you get over the initial hump!

So, let's get started...
