“Working as an advisor with RED MILLS is so refreshing as it allows me to recommend products that I am confident in, and that really make a difference to horses’ health. I can see how they put the horse at the centre of everything they do and how the horses they feed reap the rewards! As the adage goes, ‘Prevention is better than cure’. It certainly is fun following the champions we have fed from birth right through to the winner’s enclosure!
