2-minute read

Clare is passionate about helping owners with the nutrition, health and fitness of their horse or pony, whether they are pets, leisure horses or top competition animals. Clare is a horse-feeding, nutrition and health expert with both scientific qualifications and years of practical experience.

“I founded my company to help owners do the best for their horses with independent advice, rather than advice biased by product sales. We have a great choice of feed, supplement and healthcare products for horses, but this wide choice creates confusion and the very foundation of good nutrition and health can be overlooked.

With this in mind, Clare is passionate about correct nutrition as a foundation for good health, without which peak fitness is not possible. "Good nutrition isn’t everything, but there’s nothing without it.

Clare is registered with the Association for Nutrition. The AfN’s Register of Nutritionists is run to "Protect the public and promote high standards in evidence-based science and professional practice of nutrition."

About Clare

Clare has been fascinated by horses since she took her first steps, and her love for these magnificent animals has never waned. She has always been passionate about learning and after enjoying academic work at school, realised she would follow a career in horse-related science. “I feel so privileged to be able to work doing what I love” she explains. “I grew up questioning everything (thank you to my very patient parents) so I loved the rigour of science. Whilst good science throws up more questions than answers, it gives us the backbone to help make decisions about our horse care that will help, not hinder”. "I’m passionate about ensuring horse owners have an unbiased and truthful source of information”

Clare has her own horses, which as well as an essential learning tool, have allowed her to understand fully what owners are going through when they have nutrition or health challenges with their horses.
