HorseHage – For A Healthy Horse… and an Easier Life!

The HorseHage Range

Your choice of forage for your horse or pony should be the most important dietary decision you make for them.

As the equine diet should consist of 70 – 100% forage, it makes sense to ensure that you opt for the best possible quality, and for a healthy respiratory system and to avoid conditions such as RAO, it should also be dust-free.

HorseHage offers several benefits to both horse and rider. It is dust-free and contains no additives, is consistent and fully guaranteed and comes in four different varieties so there’s a choice for all types of horses and ponies. It is lower in sugar than most hays and both the High Fibre and Timothy varieties can be safely fed to laminitics.

But as well as the health benefits to your horse, it can also make your life easier too.

HorseHage does not require any soaking or steaming. It comes in easy to handle small bales, but don’t be fooled into thinking this means less forage. Our bales are highly compressed to around half their original size and packed into double-skinned bags to avoid puncturing. This makes them very handy and ideal to fit into your car boot for transportation and perfect for taking to shows, but they still contain around 22kg of forage.

HorseHage splits really easily into wedges for netting up and there is usually no waste as the taste is relished by most equines and they will usually eat up. To slow down your horse or pony’s rate of eating, use a small mesh HorseHage Net to prolong eating time or use two hay nets, one inside the other. This will also help to relieve boredom when your horse is stabled. Choosing a high quality forage such as HorseHage may also enable you to reduce your horse’s hard feed by up to a third.

We are offering a free HorseHage Net with every four bales or more of HorseHage purchased (while stocks last). We have 500 nets to give away – but once they’ve gone, they’ve gone! Just keep your till receipt scroll down this page to 15th August news to find out how to redeem it for your free net.

HorseHage Announces Sponsorship Deal with Show-Jumper, Spencer Roe.

We are proud to announce a new rider is joining our team of sponsored riders.

Lincolnshire-based international show-jumper, Spencer Roe, is the latest member to join Team HorseHage, and his team of horses will be supported with HorseHage dust-free bagged forage.

Said Chris Tar of HorseHage: “We are very pleased to be able to sponsor Spencer – he is a young rider, rising fast in the BSJA rankings, and we hope that this exciting partnership will be a great success.”

Spencer rides full time as his profession, having spent two years riding and grooming for Andrew Saywell and then training under the watchful eyes of William and Pippa Funnell before returning to set up his own yard in Lincoln.

He began riding as a youngster but became really interested in show-jumping as a 13-year-old when his parents bought his pony, Just Be Ok, for 138cm classes.

He has represented Team GB for the past three years, from Junior and Young Rider Nations Cup Teams to winning his first 5* Nations Cup earlier this year.

Spencer currently has six horses in work, including his winning 5* Nations Cup ride, Wonder Why (Disney), owned by his mother, Mrs Sally Roe. Spencer and Wonder Why have been selected onto the Senior British team for the Alltech World Equestrian Games in Normandy later this month and the pair were also instrumental in qualifying the British team for the final of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Series in Barcelona in October, with an outstanding double clear in the Dublin Nations Cup.

Said Spencer: “I am very pleased to be joining Team HorseHage and realise the importance of feeding a dust-free forage such as HorseHage, as it can help keep my horses respiratory systems healthy, allowing them to perform at their best.”

Buy Four Bales of HorseHage – Get a FREE HorseHage Net!

Take advantage of our special promotion to get a FREE HorseHage Net (RRP: £7.99) when you buy four bales or more of HorseHage (any variety).

The HorseHage small mesh feeding net is strong and rot-resistant and has rings at the top to make it easier to fill.

The net is designed to hold up to two slices of HorseHage (or other forage) and has smaller mesh holes compared to standard hay nets, to prolong feeding time. Being slightly smaller than the traditional hay nets, the HorseHage net hangs well off the ground, and together with the small mesh size, this means that there is less likelihood of a horse becoming entangled. The smaller mesh also helps prevent forage falling on the floor.

To apply for your free HorseHage Net, simply purchase four or more bales of HorseHage from your stockist after 31st August 2014 and keep your till receipt showing this purchase. Download our form from HERE, print off, fill in and post with your receipt to: FAO: D.Harris, HorseHage Competition, Mark Westaway & Son, Love Lane Farm, Marldon, Paignton, Devon, TQ3 1SP.

HorseHage Supports Beth Langley at Alltech World Equestrian Games

Beth Langley

We are proud to announce our support of endurance rider, Beth Langley, with High Fibre HorseHage whilst she competes at the Alltech World Equestrian Games in Normandy in August.

Twenty-three-year-old Beth will be competing on Mrs Cate Langley’s 16-year-old, 14hh, pure-bred Arabian, HS Ametista. The pair has already represented Great Britain five times and will be riding a route of 160km on 28th August alongside the other four team members, competing for both team and individual medals.

HS Ametista (or Tissy, as she is known at home) was bred by Mrs S Watts of Halsdon Arabians and Beth has been competing in endurance with her for nine years.

Said a delighted Beth: “I am thrilled that HorseHage is supporting us again – We have had High Fibre HorseHage at every championship that Tissy has been to.”

“I never imagined that the pony I grew up with will be the one that takes me to my first World Equestrian Games – not many disciplines can say that! I’m so excited at being part of Equestrian Team GBR! My family, who are also my very valued crew, have never missed a ride and will be out there with me. It’s wonderful to have such great support and backing from them and also my sponsors.”

High Fibre HorseHage is made from selected ryegrasses that have been allowed to mature before harvesting to attain higher fibre, lower protein and lower energy levels. This makes it a great choice for leisure horses or those resting, convalescing or laminitic. It also provides an excellent fibre source for competition horses being fed high levels of concentrate.
