Here at Dengie, we are proud to be the UK’s favourite horse feed supplier, as shown in the 2019 British Equestrian Trade Association National Equine Survey. We comply with quality assurance schemes such as UFAS and FEMAS that were set up to ensure safety in horse food. We are also approved under the BETA NOPS scheme which means we are recognised as having taken action to reduce the risk of contamination in horse feed with substances that contravene the rules of horse racing and FEI disciplines.
