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.
At Dengie, we are devoted to creating the best and healthiest horse food, supplements and feed balancers that include all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients that your horse or pony may require for every season, activity or event. Our horse feeds have been developed by our team of highly qualified nutritionists, who select only the highest-quality ingredients. We aim to make feeding easy and simple for horse and pony owners. If you can’t find the answer to your feeding question our team of nutritionists is on hand to offer sound, practical help and advice.
