New SPILLERS® nutritionist takes to the road

A new SPILLERS® leisure nutritionist has taken to the road to bring free nutrition support to horses and ponies around the country.

This popular service, which was first introduced three years ago, provides unbiased feeding advice for horse and pony owners, together with the use of a portable weigh bridge, all within the comfort of your own yard. Nicki Smith has joined the company to cover the south of England while long-term SPILLERS® leisure nutritionist Isabel Harker covers the north.

Choosing the right feed and maintaining the right weight are common concerns for many owners but SPILLERS® can help, free of charge. Nicki or Isabel will help assess your horse’s weight and individual feeding needs and will be happy to chat about any queries or concerns you may have. They can teach you the art of condition scoring and can visit regularly to help monitor your progress and fine-tune your feeding programme. To save you having to take notes as you go you will be given a record card at the end of the session, showing your horse’s current weight, condition score and suggested diet plan.

Nicki has been riding since she could walk. She currently enjoys show jumping her Holstein mare Tia and showing her mountain and moorland mare Quiver, with whom she hopes to qualify for Horse of the Year Show. She was a working pupil for some of the UK’s top riders before taking up a career in sales and marketing. She gained considerable experience with international brands before joining the Mars Horsecare Team.

Nicki said: “Being able to combine my passion for horses with my career is, for me, the ultimate achievement. Meeting horse owners every day and helping them devise the right diets for their horses is nothing less than a pleasure.”
