WHY:

One Purina dealer that frequently hosts events partners with Purina PhD equine nutritionists and a prestigious local veterinary clinic to bring cutting-edge research to its customers. “Horse owners sometimes develop habits and routines that cause them to forget some of the things they learned years ago,” says Curtis Spencer, owner and president, Spencer’s Feed & Seed, Folsom, Louisiana. “Horse Owners Workshops can help refresh their memories and break through the routines they’ve developed to bring them back to the basics.”
