Introduction to Horse Nutrition provides the fundamental applied science, including basic chemistry of nutrition, that all equine students need to understand. Covering the current syllabuses set out by equine science and management courses, this is the ideal book for those studying horse nutrition at an introductory level, particularly those who lack background knowledge in science.Nutrition has long been recognised as a vital and integral part of horse care and is known to be important for optimal horse health, reproduction, sustained performance and general well being. Horses are healthier, happier and are more likely to perform at their best when given the correct balance of nutrients via as natural a diet as possible. This book is also invaluable for horse owners, trainers and breeders seeking to learn more about the important subject of equine nutrition.
