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.
Keep up-to date with the latest news from our team of supported horse riders, plus the most recent horse food advice and top tips from our team of equine nutritionists.
I thought I would take the opportunity to look back as well as forward to the year ahead. I certainly don’t think 2020 was anything like I imagined this time last year.
Wow what a year 2020 was - I thought I would round up the events of this difficult and frustrating year. However, through it all my horses haven’t failed to make me smile, what would we do without them?
We are proud to announce our new partnership with Writtle University College as their ‘Official Fibre Feed Provider’.
If you sit and watch the trot up at Burghley or Badminton, it is quite clear that event horses come in all shapes and sizes. The perfect event horse is an amalgamation of many things, with the common denominator being that they all have the heart of a lion. We speak to Samantha Hobbs (CCI4* Event Rider) and ask her what she looks for when buying a young horse to event.
Enquiries to the Dengie feedline about Equine Faecal Water Syndrome (EFSW) are increasing but very little is known about this interesting phenomenon.
Symptoms including itchiness, over-excitable or irritable behaviour and loose droppings are often described as allergies by horse owners and are attributed to various different ingredients including molasses and alfalfa. But can horses have allergies? Are they truly allergic reactions and if so, how do we best manage them?
