At last, a book that clears up the confusion about feeding a whole food diet to horses! Veteran horse nutrition expert Tigger Montague has created a must-have resource for every horse owner, packed with easy-to-follow, practical information on: understanding basic principles of a whole food diet; a complete breakdown of all essential whole food components; foods for specific issues such as recovery, immunity, GI tract health, performance, metabolic imbalances and allergies; ways to improve soil and pastures; understanding ingredients in commercial equine feeds; understanding chemicals in commercial equine shampoos and cleaners and why your horse may be sensitive to them; complete sample diets for easy and hard keepers, heavy and light work horses, seniors and more!

Tigger Montague has spent most of her life with horses. From riding ponies as a child, to training and competing in eventing and dressage as an adult, her passion for horses and animals has been a lifelong dedication. With over 30 years in the nutrition business, both human and equine, she combines her experience with deep investigation of both the science and the philosophies of food and nutrition. Her company, BioStarUS, has pioneered the formulation and production of whole, non-GMO, raw food supplements for horses and dogs.
