This training is very suitable for professionals (and studious horse owners) to explore the theme of healthy / natural horse nutrition.

The course will be given with Vimeo and the Q&A will be with zoom.

Many aspects of nutrition will be discussed. It is partly very theoretical, but we will also gain practical knowledge and you can also ask your personal questions in the Q&A sessions.

Themes part 1:

• Domesticated horses VS. wild horses

• Digestive physiology

• Food, all possible raw materials, ingredients and types of food are reviewed

• How does the metabolism work and how are the substances in the food used by the body

• What is healthy food for the horse (hay management, mineral nutrition, balancers, concentrates)

 

Themes part 2:

• Why do our horses develop „lifestyle diseases“ like excess weight or skin affections?

• How does „detoxification“ work on a physiological level?

• Liver and Kidney function explained

• Cryptopyrroluria (KPU)  – a common health issue underlying many metabolic symptoms like sweet itch, laminitis etc

• How do you see that your horse has health problems and what are the early markers for metabolic problems

 

Themes part 3:

• Different primal types of horses and the influence of the primal qualities on the contemporary horse

• The difference between storage of waste in fat or connective tissue (and the consequences)

• The difference between fat, lymphatic or muscular horses (and how to manage them)

 

The advanced course is given by Dr. Christina Fritz. Christina is a biologist by origin and has done a lot of research into what healthy horse nutrition contains. As a result, she has written several books (see images) on these themes, all with scientific support.
