Maintaining the best of health in our horses can be a particular challenge over winter, with the cold dark days, and no fresh grazing available. If we add in the needs of the veteran equine, it can be even more challenging. However, we know, that our equine population is ageing, and more and more horses and ponies are continuing to lead an active life well into their teens and beyond. It’s important we support not just the ‘lifespan’ of the older horse, but the ‘healthspan’ – that period of life spent in good general health and free from pain or the disabilities of old age.
