Having a horse and being able to maintain it takes education and sometimes years of practice. But when it comes to maintaining performance horses at their highest level, having a professional around to help give yourself a great foundation of knowledge can make a huge difference in the show ring. Tigger Montague, founder and formulator at BioStar, LLC is able to provide her expertise in the field of equine nutrition to the owners, riders and professionals attending the 2013-14 season of competition in Wellington and Loxahatchee, Florida.
In her educational talks, Tigger will go over ‘Feeding for Performance,’ where she’ll break down the ingredients of feeds and supplements. The talk starts with the fundamentals of equine nutrition: fiber, protein, fats and carbohydrates. From there she’ll use those building blocks to help further educate the audience on how to feed for performance and health. She is also available for individual nutritional consults, and can work in conjunction with veterinarians to address specific issues relating to performance and/or general health conditions.
Tigger Montague’s background is extensive in nutrition, including thirty years in the human and equine supplement industry and a focus on Ayruvedic Medicine. “Feeding horses doesn’t have to be difficult,” said Tigger. “My goal is to help break down the barriers of confusing labels and feeding programs so that individuals can provide better health to themselves and their horses, and improved performance in the show ring.”
Any facility or group of individuals within a twenty mile radius of Wellington, Florida, can opt to have Tigger come to your facility. Talks usually last for over an hour, and time afterwards for questions is recommended. For those interested in setting up an appointment to have Tigger come out to your facility, or for an individual nutritional consultation, please write to [email protected].
