Why a Track?

Posted by Janine Kell on

So, something a little bit different here - not turmeric related at all, but something I felt may benefit a significant part of our equine customer base. A lot of customers using TurmerAid Pellets  have older horses or horses with conditions such as laminitis, EMS, cushings or arthritis and learning about track systems may well be beneficial for you and  your horses. The first ponies on our track will be the overweight Socks, Adnod - another Welsh who has laminitis, due his last set of heartbars and then little Spencer, who suffers with arthritis. 

The idea behind a track system is that it will allow your horse to live in a way that is much more in keeping with how they would live naturally if they were in their herd in the wild. Horses are designed to forage. On average, horses will walk 35 miles in a day, just wandering mainly - searching for food from grass and hedgerows as their digestive systems are designed for regular small amounts of forage. 

There is an awesome Facebook group - Horse Track System - that I have joined and is proving hugely resourceful for working on and planning our track. I highly recommend joining this group to learn more.
