To celebrate Equine Obesity Week from 4-10 July 2022, SPILLERS™ is running a competition to win a strip grazing kit, including energiser, fencing tape and posts.* This highly practical prize will help one lucky winner to manage their horse’s grass intake more effectively.

SPILLERS has introduced Equine Obesity Week this year to give horse owners added support and motivation during their equine weight loss journeys. Handy weight management advice, facts and information will be posted on SPILLERS’ social media platforms during every day of the Week to help inspire and encourage owners.

“To show our commitment to being your partners in care, and to celebrate our very first Equine Obesity Week we wanted to give you the opportunity to win something that can help to make a real difference to the day-to-day management of your horse,” said Clare Barfoot RNutr, Marketing and Research and Development Director at Mars Horsecare UK, home of the SPILLERS brand said: “A strip grazing kit is the perfect prize as our studies have shown that strip grazing can be an effective tool, under controlled conditions, to reduce the rate of weight gain in ponies living out at pasture.”

The competition will be running on the SPILLERS Facebook page from 4-10 July 2022.

SPILLERS is also inviting horse owners to join the SPILLERS Slimmers’ Club, with the goal of members' horses collectively losing 100,000kg. As the weight loss accumulates it will be converted to a financial donation of £5k to support Redwings’ vital equine welfare work, which includes rescuing horses from the risks of obesity.

For advice on managing your horse’s grass intake please call the SPILLERS Care-Line on 01908 226626.
