Feeding horses is often regarded as an art with many owners using traditional diets and others adopting more scientific feeding methods to get the best out of their horses. Although a great deal of scientific information is available much of it provided over the years by our own Australian based research and observations it does not always become readily available in a form that is understood and can be put into practice by horse owners and those feeding and caring for horses.
