Despite increased publicity of the dangers associated with overfeeding and equine obesity, there has been an unprecedented increase in the number of investigated cases relating to obesity and laminitis. The latest research published by the National Equine Health Survey (NEHS) 2015 stated that, of the 15,000 horses included in the study, 23% were described as overweight - up from 16.9% the previous year. Being overweight predisposes horses to diseases such as laminitis, EMS and PPID (Cushing's Disease).
Team Dengie have made it our mission for 2016 to help raise awareness and battle this issue with the Dengie Fit Club. Designed to help educate horse owners, the Dengie Fit Club will provide nutritional help and support for all horse owners.
