Feed Awareness Week
We are really excited to launch BETA Feed Awareness Week – a new annual campaign to dispel feeding myths and improve your knowledge of equine nutrition.
The initiative is taking place throughout the UK and is supported by leading equestrian organisations such as the British Horse Society, The Pony Club and British Riding Clubs – and BETA retail and feed company members.
Feed facts you can trust
As the British Equestrian Trade Association, we are dedicated to equine welfare and have launched BETA Feed Awareness Week to help you access sound nutritional advice. By focusing on good feeding practice and separating fact from fiction, we can help you make more informed choices when it comes to buying your feed and supplements.
Working together with BETA members, we are able to deliver top feeding facts and advice from some of the country's leading equine nutritionists. We are also providing some great feeding tips from many of our leading competition riders, who have given the week their full backing.
BETA Feed Awareness Week is supported by many of our retail members, who will be doing their bit for equine nutrition in-store. After all, your local participating BETA retailer is a great place to find fantastic feeding advice. Look out BETA Feed Awareness Week bunting and stickers around their shops as a clear sign that they are on board. Don't forget that many of our online retailers will also be playing an important role.
The campaign will see lots of great-awareness raising events taking place in the days leading up to, and throughout, the week. Retailers will be running competitions, creating informative displays and staging a wide range of special feed-focused events.
