The SPILLERS™ brand is celebrating an exceptional year of sharing nutrition advice and providing horse and rider support around the country during 2023, culminating in MARS becoming title sponsor of Badminton Horse Trials. 

This year alone the SPILLERS nutrition teams have attended ten of some of the country’s major horse shows across the disciplines including dressage, show jumping, eventing, showing and endurance. Free support and advice have been delivered to amateur and professional riders alike and free use of the brand’s weighbridge has been available at some of the events. In addition, SPILLERS nutrition teams have supported numerous Riding Club, Pony Club and British Dressage Camps, with friendly faces always on hand to answer any nutrition queries or concerns.

The popular feed manufacturer has also continued to support a loyal portfolio of riders, from leading professionals to aspiring grassroots amateurs. Meanwhile from a health and welfare perspective the SPILLERS Slimmers’ Club is continuing to provide camaraderie, inspiration and advice for equine weight loss, via its fast-growing friendly Facebook community.

This year the SPILLERS™ brand was proud to sponsor the Horse & Hound Amateur Rider of the Year Award; another reflection of their commitment to supporting aspiring amateur riders and nurturing equestrian talent for the future. The Award was won by Amy Dixon, winner if the BE90 grassroots championships at the Badminton Horse Trials 2023.

To help support some of the day-to-day aspects of horse ownership, during what has been a particularly challenging financial year for some, the brand has run two competitions. The prizes of carefully planned bundles of practical gifts, such as feed, rugs and yard equipment added up to a value exceeding £2000.

From a charity perspective the SPILLERS™ brand continues its long-term partnership on numerous projects with Redwings Horse Sanctuary.

“It’s been a busy and very fulfilling year,” said Claire Dyett, Marketing Manager at Mars Horsecare, home of the SPILLERS brand. “We have been working hard to support the equestrian sector in as many ways as we can this year. Whether a professional rider, dedicated amateur leisure owner or charity, we have endeavoured to provide a practical helping hand for horse ownership. The icing on the cake has been the announcement of MARS as the title sponsor of the legendary Badminton Horse Trials, about which we are all extremely proud.”
