Consumers urged to get involved. 

Spillers is asking owners of horses and ponies aged 15 years and over to help with a new survey. 

The results will help it learn more about the specific nutritional needs of senior equines, says the feed brand. 

Every survey participant has the chance to win a £50 feed voucher. 

Around 40% of horses and ponies in the UK may be in the 15+ age category, Spillers’ data suggests.

“With more and more horse owners now caring for seniors, we are on a mission to gather more in-depth information about management practices,” said Sarah Nelson, product manager at Mars Horsecare, home of the Spillers brand. 

“The [survey] results will help us identify how we can provide the best support for senior horses nutritionally, to help keep them in optimum health throughout the ageing process.”
