Evidence-based nutritional advice

Equine Consulting Services was established in 2004 and provides a range of nutritional services to the horse industry delivering scientifically based, nutritional advice for all phases of horse growth, development and performance. The consultancy is held in high regard by the veterinary industry for its ability to assist in improving performance, optimising growth and reducing the risk of disease through improved nutritional and management strategies.

Who we work with

Our goal is to work closely with owners and trainers by helping them to optimise their horses' feeding programs according to their specific workload and environmental requirements.  As we are able to formulate diets based on any commercially available or raw feed ingredient, there are no limitations to who we can work with.  Our current clients include leading Thoroughbred trainers (many of whom have been with us since our inception), breeders, as well as performance and leisure horse owners.  

Our Services

We offer a range of services to suit the needs of the individual owner and trainer, from online nutritional support through to stable and farm visits.  For further information please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Continuing research and development in horse health and nutrition

We have been successful in securing major funding grants from the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation and private funding bodies over the years and remain actively involved in research in various areas of horse health and nutrition .
