A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
I am an equine nutritionist in Ontario Canada. After completing my MSc. at the University of Guelph I started my own independent equine nutrition consulting company - Balanced Bay. I now offer hay testing, balanced diets, as well as both on-farm and remote consultations.

Many horse owners use the expertise of a nutritionist to not only ensure that their horse is not deficient in any nutrients but to also improve the ration. This can resolve issues such as delicate hooves, over-conditioning, inappetence etc.
