Fit not fat
I have just started competing my 16.3 warmblood in affiliated dressage competitions, and am struggling to find a feed that gives him enough stamina and energy without making him too fat.


Laminitis worries
Q My vet has just confirmed that my 12.2 Welsh X pony is suffering from Laminitis. He is now on box rest but I have no idea what to feed him to help him lose weight


Feeding the older horse
Q I have a 18-year-old TBx who is still in regular work, but I have noticed that he is starting to lose weight. Does this mean he needs to start on a veteran feed? I am a bit reluctant to try one as she tends to be fizzy.
