Baileys Horse Feeds
Baileys Horse Feeds is a family owned and run business, founded in 1982, with two generations working to progress equine nutrition in the 21st century. So many of the people behind the Baileys brand is that they are true horse men and women, with many of them not just owning horses but actively competing, racing and breeding them. This means that we’re familiar with the practicalities of keeping and feeding horses, we know the challenges our customers face and we understand their needs.
Our nutrition team constantly review the latest scientific research into feed technology and equine nutrition. All the ingredients we use are chosen because we believe they are the best for the horse and all are carefully selected for their quality and suitability. This, along with our meticulous production techniques, means that a bag of Baileys really is different from a bag of feed from another manufacturer; the digestibility is outstanding, so your horse gets more per scoop, with a balance of nutrients that means a Baileys-fed horse stands out with a glossy coat and superb muscle tone.
Our team of nutritionists is also available to offer no obligation, practical advice and to help you explore all your feeding options. They can be contacted during office hours by phone or email, certainly won’t advocate change for the sake of it and may simply reassure you that you are doing the right thing. For friendly, practical advice, the Baileys team are hard to beat.
