A series of three webinars to help horse owners understand more about gastric ulcers, reduce the risks of laminitis, and manage their horses’ diets kicks off next week.

Presented by Spillers nutritionists, Isabel Harker, Gina Burgoyne and Sarah Nelson, each session will contain clearly delivered information and practical advice. There will also be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
