During this session we will look at understanding equine supplements and will cover the following: - What are supplements - Why do we need them - Looking at vitamins and minerals - Understanding ingredients - Understanding balancers - Common supplements used - Ailments and issues that respond to supplements - Q&A Donna has over 10 years of national and international experience as an Equine Nutritionist. She has during this time appeared in many of the UK's leading equestrian publications including:- ​​ - Horse & Hound Magazine - British Dressage Magazine - British Eventing Magazine - Eventing Magazine Donna has worked not only in high performance yards, but also at high profile events themselves in the stable areas on call, some for many years in a row include: ​ - Badminton Horse Trials (FEI CCI ****) - Blair Horse Trials (FEI CCI ***) - Bramham Horse Trials (FEI CCI ***) - British Dressage National Winter Dressage Championships - Olympia The London International Horse Show - Royal Windsor Horse Show - Sandringham Driving Trials ​ After receiving her 'Feeding Diploma' she made it her mission to become an Equine Nutritionist at the highest level; specifically to help as many horses as possible. ​ After graduating Donna started her career working for one of the UK's leading horse feed manufacturers. Originally as a Care-Line Nutritionist she was the main point of call for one horse owners who needed help & support across three different brands. ​ Within 18 months Donna went on to become their Competition Nutritionist for the South of England. During this time she was nutritionist to many of the UK's leading eventers, dressage riders and show jumpers sorting the diets for elite level horses day in, day out. ​ In 2006 she also went on to become one of the nutritionists for the British Equestrian Federation, Team GBR and World Class Start, Potential & Performance squads in the disciplines of Eventing and Dressage due to her capacity as a commercial nutritionist and the brand she worked with. Working with team vets, physiotherapists, and coaches as a professional in her own right was a huge honour and one which pushed her practical application of equine nutrition to the highest level. Donna worked with Team GBR from 2006-2010 which included working with the UK equestrian squads sent to Hong Kong for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.​ ​ Although Donna has worked with horses and riders competing at an Olympic level one thing will always remain; her love of all horses. Now completely independent of any feed or supplement company Donna runs her independent equine nutrition consultancy out of Newmarket. These days the majority of her clients are owners/riders wanting the very best for their horses. ​ "My aim is to demystify the haze which seems to surround feeding horses.
