Horse & Hound, the internationally recognised consumer equestrian magazine, have turned to IEN for expert advice on nutrition including frequent editorial input. IEN was recently invited to take part in a round table discussion, to be featured in January, on joint disease. Offering the nutritionist’s viewpoint, IEN formed a panel of experts together with Rossdale’s vet and orthopaedic expert Andy Bathe, internationally recognised farrier Simon Curtis, as well as acclaimed riders including husband and wife team Pippa and William Funnell and dressage stalwart Richard Davison. The day featured some robust discussion led by Horse & Hound editor Lucy Higginson and features editor Jaki Bell. IEN put forward the view that good basic nutrition was essential for maintained joint health with steps being taken to avoid obesity, which can accelerate joint disease. In addition IEN voiced an opinion that many of the interesting ingredients utilised to help maintain joint health simply don’t have sufficient evidence for their efficacy, reflecting the low level of investment in equine research.
