Meet our nutritional team below.

Lou Talintyre


As a former stud farm owner, Lou loves horses, is a very practical and hands-on Yorkshire lass and has become a nutritional geek. Lou developed her own natural feeds for her horses when she couldn’t find what was right for them in the shops. The story that Lou started mixing her own feeds with an eBay purchased cement mixer is completely true and is a testament to her resourcefulness and determination to feed what was right for the horses in her care. The results were so good they formed the foundations of what would become the Pure Feed range. Lou remains at the forefront of the business, ensuring that our range continues to serve all our customers’ needs whilst staying true to her original values.

Lally Bradley- Pure Feed nutritionist

Alice Bradley (Lally) BSc


Lally has always been completely obsessed with animals and particularly horses from a very early age, starting riding when she was seven. As Lally grew up her interest in horses continued and she took opportunities to work with a local event rider riding as many horses as she was given the opportunity to ride. Lally studied at The Royal Agricultural University where she qualified with a BSc, igniting her passion and interest in nutrition. Lally really wanted to understand what benefits the right nutrition and diet had for the horses she rode. This led to her decision to pursue a career in equine nutrition and brought her to The Pure Feed Company.
