SPILLERS™ is running a series of three webinars for horse owners to help them manage their horses’ diets, understand more about gastric ulcers and reduce the risks of laminitis. The first webinar will be held on 20th January 2022.

Presented by highly knowledgeable SPILLERS nutritionists, Isabel Harker, Gina Burgoyne and Sarah Nelson, each session will contain clearly delivered information and practical advice. There will also be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

“Whether you have a horse or a pony, and whether you are looking for safe weight gain, weight loss or a maintenance diet these webinars are for you,” said Clare Barfoot RNutr, Marketing and Research and Development Director at Mars Horsecare UK, home of the SPILLERS brand. “The webinars incorporate answers to many of the questions we receive via our Care-Line, together with the latest in equine nutrition science, making them highly relevant for every level of horse owner. And the best news is they are free and accessible to all.”
