Vittoria has been a brand ambassador for Pure Feed for more than 10 years and wouldn’t consider any other feed now!
“Since feeding Pure, my horses have been in brilliant condition. The results speak for themselves! The influence that feeding Pure has had on their temperament is massive, and it makes them so much more rideable and trainable.
“I feed Pure in addition to ad lib, high quality Devon haylage for forage. The combination of the two keeps horses in tip top condition. Additionally, it keeps them settled and happy in themselves – and therefore produces great results! Pure is invaluable and helps us analyse all our forage so we know exactly what we are feeding!
“The range of feeds that Pure has means that there is something for all the horses in the yard. We often have a huge range of horses – from the 4* horses, to youngsters in to be broken, to old retired horses – and there is something to suit them all!
“I would thoroughly recommend giving Pure a try. The brilliant team they have are there to advise you every step of the way and will be sure to get the best out of your horse or pony!”
