Special care and management considerations of your horse(s):

We like our feed to give energy without fizziness. Quality protein and palatability are a must as well as being a good fit across the range of horses on the farm.

Which Pryde's feeds do you use and why do you like them?

BioMare Cubes - Fantastic results on our broodmares, foals and young stock.

EasiResponse - Great for schooling horses and the young show jumpers, energy but no heat and builds great topline and condition.

EasiResult - Great for any picky eaters.
