Red Mills feeds available in over
Connolly’s RED MILLS has been supplying horse feed in Ireland since 1967. In 1985, Liam Connolly and his 2 sons Joe and Bill exported their first load of horse feed to the United Kingdom. The family then took the emerging RED MILLS brand to continental Europe in 1993. By 2000, RED MILLS had grown its footprint across Europe through its culture of hard work, quality and consistency underpinned by innovation to meet customer needs. Today, our range is extensively available across most of Europe.
In 2005, RED MILLS became the first equine feed company in the world to secure a landmark Chinese licence for horse feed supply. Our innovative NFMS packaging technology utilised secured successful customer expansion due to being suitable for high-humidity environments. This success in the region was closely followed by additional customer growth across far Eastern Asia. Today, we continue to supply leading stables from Beijing to Tokyo, with sales offices in China, Korea and India as part of our commitment to serving the customers in the region.
In 1997, Connolly’s RED MILLS branched out into the United States market, leading to a rapid expansion of our equine feed distribution. These include some of the largest states within the US and beyond, further expanding to the Canada region. Today, we have a company branch and sales office in the USA that provides direct technical and product support to our customers in these areas.
Gulf & Middle East
In 2007, RED MILLS grew its international presence even further by settling its roots in the Emirate of Dubai and the greater Middle Eastern region. The region is serviced through our Freezone entity, RED MILLS INTERNATIONAL, with our distributors and their subsidiaries servicing our valued customers. RED MILLS now supplies many of the countries within the Gulf region, with support on the ground thanks to our expert team located in our branch offices in Dubai.
A word from our clients around the globe
“When I started out training I was always going to go with Red Mills and I have been thrilled with their Horse Care range. My horses always seem to look well and hold their condition through the season which is very pleasing.”
Harry DerhamNational Hunt Trainer, United Kingdom
“We’ve had a great season so far; I think there’s a combination of things that have to come together for the horses to be successful and stay in good form, one of which is nutrition. I love being able to run my horses and since using RED MILLS Horse Care we have really noticed how well they come out of their runs. Within days they are back into their normal routine and I can start looking for the next target. The proof is in the results and how well they hold their condition all year.”
Donald McCainNational Hunt Trainer, United Kingdom
I have been really happy with my horses since making the change to RED MILLS. I find that using the Care Range, my horses are looking well, holding their condition and building strong topline, and their consistently high level of performance speaks for this itself.
At Hambleton Lodge, we have chosen to feed the RED MILLS Racehorse Cubes. I feel that this product provides the horses with the right level of energy, whilst keeping them in great condition throughout the season. I like feeding to be simple, and the Racehorse Cube gives us everything we need.
Kevin RyanTrainer, United Kingdom
I have been feeding RED MILLS since the start of my training career. They have a great range of products that we use and I couldn’t be happier with them.
Joseph O’BrienTrainer, Ireland
It’s great to have an ultra-low starch product as an addition to the Horse Care range we currently use. It’s reassuring to know we are feeding the same trusted feed with the Horse Care benefits, while ensuring those horses who require a low-starch diet can continue in training and perform to the highest levels. We wouldn’t be without Horse Care Ultra Cubes now we have seen the results!
Harry FryTrainer, United Kingdom
Your horses are only as good as the fuel you put in them. We’re getting great results on Horse Care. They eat it, we give them plenty. The better the feed, the more work you can give them, they recover quicker, and their performance is better.
Dan SkeltonTrainer, United Kingdom
I have been using RED MILLS feed for over 25 years. Their feeds are high-quality and the Care range caters for all our needs, from yearling flat horses to our national hunt horses – I highly recommend them.
Jessica HarringtonTrainer, Ireland
It’s all about performance. Since we’ve moved to Horse Care, we’ve got a very consistent level of performance. Everything is in the feed; it’s a worldwide name and their reputation is very good. If we’ve any problems we can ring them up, their aftercare is very good and somebody will come down.
We have been using Horse Care for years and the results we’ve had speak for themselves. The demands on our horses racing through the winter months mean that they need a feed that helps them hold condition and look well throughout the season. The range covers all the horse’s nutritional needs, from the early days in their career through to horses racing at the highest level.
Nicky HendersonChampion Trainer, United Kingdom
RED MILLS is a safe bet when it comes to raw ingredients and overall quality of the feed.
Gabriel LeendersTrainer, France
I can see that my horses are recovering better from the gallops.
Jean de RoüalleTrainer, United Arab Emirates
I have always used RED MILLS. I find in an operation this big, I have to delegate the management of certain areas, and feeding we delegate to RED MILLS. Year in, year out, the quality of the product is far superior to anything else.
Using RED MILLS, you can see the benefit in the horses’ skin, you can see the benefit in the amount of training you can give a horse and you can see the benefit in the results, It’s just quality through and through.
Willie MullinsChampion Trainer, Ireland
Since making the change to Connolly’s RED MILLS and using Horse Care 14 Mix, my horses are looking and feeling great. Our horses are eating and working well, and recovering quickly after running. It’s great having the support of their team, which means a lot.
Charlie HillsTrainer, United Kingdom
My horses love it and we can use RED MILLS all over the world.
Sakae KuneidaTrainer, Japan
We are lucky to be able to race everywhere in the world while being consistently supplied by RED MILLS.
Nicolas CaulleryTrainer, France
What really caught my attention is the passion that every individual of the team has towards the products.
Mohammad BitarManager, Al Kamda Stables, United Arab Emirates
“The difference I’ve seen in my horses since feeding Horse Care Ultra Cubes has been incredible. They all look well in their skin and coat, and have really developed across their topline; I’ve had so many comments on how well they look! Even the fussiest of horses leave a clean bowl and at 4% starch, they maintain a level head which is so important for dressage.”
Sonnar Murray-BrownSponsored Rider, Dressage, United Kingdom
“I have fed Connolly’s RED MILLS for 7 years and I have 100% confidence that it is responsible for the all-round wellness and scientific health of my horses whether at home or during competition. Each individual horse is catered for within the Horse Care range and able to perform to the maximum of their abilities. The overall attention to detail and high standard that the company uphold give me total assurance that no stone has been left unturned when it comes to nutrition for our performance horses at whatever age or level of their training. Running an equestrian business is physically and emotionally full on and for me it gives me great comfort knowing that my horse’s diet is taken care of by the Connolly’s team.”
Charlotte BaconRED MILLS Ambassador, Eventing, United Kingdom
“The Horse Care Ultra cubes have been a game changer for my ex racehorse, Ember. Since introducing him to the feed, his overall condition has immensely improved, allowing me to gradually build his top line, all the while he maintains a level head… Often not very easy for a buzzy thoroughbred.”
Lucy RobinsonFooltluce Eventing, United Kingdom
“I have always liked the idea of feeding a mash, but one of my horses Sox is incredibly fussy and has turned her nose up to mash’s in the past. Sox obviously has good taste as she loves Comfort Mash. I’ve used it in the summer to help hydrate her after a competition or with warm water for comforting mash during the winter. All my horses love it”
Cameron BeerEventer, United Kingdom
One of my mantras in life is to keep it simple and RED MILLS helps me to do that with the ever so important feeding of my horses; both horses are on RED MILLS, I’m a big fan and it works well for me.
Louise SkinnerRED MILLS Customer, Ireland
I cannot recommend the team at Red Mills enough for the quality service and sound advice they have provided. From the first consultation to being able to order feed directly to my local feed merchant (rather than driving 120km round trip every 2 weeks!) and most importantly, the great condition that my horses are in despite living in one of the toughest areas of the west coast has been a godsend for me and the horses.
Catherine MeenaghanRED MILLS Customer, Ireland
I just love Red Mills and so do the horses! I’ve fed other brands in the past, but my horses have always been happier and better looking on Red Mills.
Dearbhle CreaghRED MILLS Customer, Ireland
Cooley Farm has been feeding RED MILLS feed since the inception of the business. Our many international clients often comment on how well our horses look. We attribute this directly to good bedding, haylage and our RED MILLS feed. Their Horse Care Range in particular is second to none and is also highly palatable. The products work fast which is so important at Cooley Farm where stock turnover is high. We would not use anything else.
Richard SheaneCooley Farm, Ireland
Nutrition is essential for horses to withstand the pressures of eventing at the highest level. I feed Horse Care which all my horses, from young ones to those competing at advanced, do really well on. I can ring RED MILLS for expert advice, they’re there to discuss any queries I have alongside Foran Equine. They ensure all my horse’s nutritional needs are met.
Tina CookRED MILLS Ambassador, Eventing, United Kingdom
I love Horse Care 10 and every one of my horses is on it. They all look and feel fantastic as it keeps their gastric health in top condition and their coats shiny. We use Comfort Mash for when we are travelling to keep the horses hydrated. We also find the Horse Care mix to be fantastic for the fussy eaters.
Shane BreenRED MILLS Ambassador, Showjumping, Ireland
A lot of my horses are on Horse Care 10. It’s low-starch, high fibre, kind on their stomach; it’s a great complete feed for my horses and it suits them. To know that my horses are getting the best in their feed is a weight off my shoulders.
Scott BrashRED MILLS Ambassador, Showjumping, United Kingdom
What we feed is central to our horse’s well-being, performance and even their mood. Like everything, we get out what we put in. I use the RED MILLS Care Range which supports stomach, muscle, hindgut, and hoof care. It’s low in starch, my horses love it and feel fantastic.
Sam WatsonRED MILLS Ambassador, Eventing, Ireland
I have been feeding RED MILLS for some time now and I have noticed a big difference in the overall condition of my horses. I believe there has been a big difference in my horses since I started feeding RED MILLS.
Richie MoloneyRED MILLS Ambassador, Showjumping, Ireland
I started to use PerformaCare Balancer after it was recommended to me by one of the RED MILLS team. I had a lovely 4y/o mare that I thought a lot of, but she was just a little bit behind in her muscle tone and overall condition. After two months, the results were fantastic. She developed a lovely topline and began to carry great condition which allowed me to continue to up her workload and training. I use it on a lot of my horses now, including the youngstock and competition horses.
Paul BeecherRED MILLS Rider, Showjumping, Ireland
I have been using RED MILLS and Foran Equine products for many years now, and not only are my horses performing at their best but they are also in great condition. When feeding high-performance horses it is important that the products are made from the highest quality ingredients, and these products speak for themselves. Their nutritional team provide great advice and the fact that they are available across the globe is a huge plus when competing abroad.
Marlon ZanotelliRED MILLS Ambassador, Showjumping, Brazil
I really trust RED MILLS. I know the feed we are giving the horses has been tested. We feed Horse Care 10 which we really like. It complements what our horses do really well for competition. It’s great for their gut and their stomach. They love it.
Laura KrautRED MILLS Ambassador, Showjumping, United States
My horses are certainly benefiting from Horse Care 10. It is great for their stomach and digestive system. It aids quicker recovery from competition, travel and general stress. I believe by feeding RED MILLS Horse Care 10 my horses look, feel and perform to their best.
Isabel FitzpatrickRED MILLS Rider, Showjumping, Ireland
The combination of feed and supplements, and getting that balance just right is hugely important. It can have a dramatic effect if it’s not quite right. With RED MILLS and Foran Equine, I know that my horses are getting a fully balanced diet. RED MILLS has a range of products, which means I can tailor my feeding programme to the individual needs of my horses.
Heike HolsteinRED MILLS Ambassador, Dressage, Ireland
I have been using RED MILLS for quite a few years now, RED MILLS feed provides my horses with everything they need to compete at the top level. The Horse Care 10 Cubes is the perfect feed for my horses, it supports their digestion and provides energy in a controlled way as to not affect their temperament. My horses are looking and feeling great on Horse Care 10.
Francis ConnorsRED MILLS Ambassador, Showjumping, Ireland
I use Horse Care 10, it’s a fabulous feed, it’s great for stomach health, it’s low in starch and high in fibre. All my horses here are on it. I am a big fan of the Horse Care range, and would use the PerformaCare Balancer too.
Elizabeth PowerRED MILLS Ambassador, Eventing, Ireland
“I’ve prepped horses for the sales on RED MILLS for several years now and find the feed compliments the work we give them very well. With the nutrition advice to hand, it allows us to treat every horse as an individual which I feel puts us on the front foot come sales day.”
David HiltonOakgrove Stud
“We have been feeding Connolly’s RED MILLS for a long time and trust in the product quality and consistency. We like to keep things simple and use the RED MILLS Stud Cubes for all our breeding and youngstock as well as the yearlings during sales prep. We take great pride in seeing our horses go on to achieve great results on the racetrack and good nutrition in their early years helps lay the foundation for future success.”
Tim HydeCamas Park Stud
“We have been using Connolly’s Red Mills Stud feed products for our horses at Ballyhimikin for a number of years now. We couldn’t be happier with the quality of their products and the exceptional nutritional support provided to us. In combination with Foran Equine products we now have a diet plan which is nutritionally balanced and cost effective. Our horses are healthy and look fantastic in their coats, it gives us great confidence going to the sales.”
James HanlyBallyhimikin Stud
We started using RED MILLS about 10 years ago for all our horses here at Belmont House Stud, including our broodmares, stallions, youngstock and competition horses. We use the Care Range as it caters for all our needs, our horses love it, and it keeps them looking and feeling great. We have always been delighted with the quality of both the products and customer service.
Andrea EtterBelmont House Stud
We have used the RED MILLS GroCare Balancer at Ringfort Stud for many years. It provides a balanced nutritional feed for foals and mares. It is reassuring to know we raise sound horses with it and thankfully we have had great success, in the sales ring and on the track.
Derek VeitchRingfort Stud
The Connolly’s RED MILLS stud range has everything we need to support the health and well-being of our mares and youngstock, and we know we have the support of their expert team if and when we need it.
