Diets are no fun 🙁
All this restricting of food, turnout and treats can result in a very bored and grumpy horse!
Preventing boredom whilst encouraging weight loss is essential to the mental wellbeing of your horse.
The first task is to stretch out meal times: give little and often or, if not possible, make the horse work for its food. Use of small-holed haynets or even double haynetting prolongs feeding times. Instead of tying the haynet against a wall, hang it from the centre of the stable. Large smooth stones placed in the food bowl will also slow down meal times.
