Pulpits Farm have been loyal customers of Simple System for over 20 years.

We have been thoroughly pleased with the products & service offered to us over the years  and have found Simple System Horse Feeds to be perfect for the wide range of different breeds we have here; including Arabs, Thoroughbreds, Highlands and other Native breeds (many of whom live out 24/7).

Gill Robinson, Essex

We are very keen to promote natural feeding of our native Highlands as they are not built to cope with rich higher sugar diets that you see in many other feeds. We also needed a straightforward and economical diet that could be used for our mares, stallions, foals and youngstock that would promote muscle development and bone growth without adding excess fat or fizz. With Simple System we have found exactly that.

Carolyn Ashcroft, Cheshire

I called Simple System Horse Feeds at the beginning of the season for some advice on a flagging pony. It didn’t seem to matter how fit Quinn was; he would lose his spice after one class or one phase.

They advised to Target Feed, so now he gets an energy boost right before each phase. What a difference it has made!

I wouldn’t be shy about calling them again in the future for any further feeding advice!

Miss Clare Pascoe

Since feeding Simple System Horse Feeds I have not struggled to keep Ami looking and feeling good throughout the winter, without her getting too spicy or sensitive. I now won't feed anything else!

Ami is fed Lucie Nuts, Blue Bag Grass Pellets and Build & Shine.

Ms Rachael Smith

My mare Blaze has been fed on Simple Systems for the last few years and the change in her behaviour is fantastic! She's gone from being a very opinionated mare to a calm, obedient and trustworthy one - but still with a bit of spice.

Mrs Tanya Skelding

I have been following Simple System's recommended diet for the month Phoebus has been here, and wow! Look at him already! He has a shine and is excited for his feeds.

Ulcers in horses

Ulcers are painful for the horse, can impact on their handlers or riders as they react to that pain, and may even reflect our failing to provide a calm and healthy environment.

Feeding young horses

Young horses rarely follow the theoretical growth curves. They have growth spurts which can coincide with spring grass coming through, or coincide with nothing in particular!

What do horses eat?

What do horses eat? Well, we know they eat a lot! Ideally, they will eat for up to 16 hours a day, grazing on high fibre forage, walking slowly as they do so. This is fine if they have free range on the right sort of pasture but when it com
