With EquiNectar, The King's Troop RHA Sets Their Sights on Improved Gut Health

Dating back to its formation as the Royal Horse Artillery at Goodwood in West Sussex in 1793, The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery has been an esteemed unit of the British Army, a glorious symbol of military tradition and equestrian discipline. As The Riding Troop, it carried out its first salute in 1946. Just a year later, King George VI renamed it The King’s Troop after an inspection, a proud name that has carried on to this day.

Whether it's thundering across Hyde Park for a royal salute or pulling the guns in precision during a state funeral, the Troop's impeccably trained horses command admiration. Today, we are overjoyed to announce that The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery has chosen EquiNectar to support the digestion and overall wellbeing of these remarkable horses.

Every royal birthday, the coronation of the King, and solemn occasions like state funerals, the resounding boom of the Troop's guns echoes across London. Behind these powerful salutes are the horses - disciplined, well-trained, and in peak health. Given the rigorous roles they undertake, ensuring their optimal health is not just essential; it is paramount.

Understanding the critical role nutrition plays in equine health, The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery has made a significant choice. They've embraced EquiNectar, a trailblazer in equine nutrition, to provide their horses with top-tier digestive support.

Built on extensive research into equine gut health, EquiNectar is designed to optimise digestion in horses, enhancing their overall health and performance. With EquiNectar, the Troop's horses are expected to see improved nutritional absorption, better equipping them for the demanding roles they perform.

There is a strong connection between a horse's gut health and its performance, temperament, and overall health, a concept often referred to as the 'gut-brain axis'. EquiNectar works by preventing the imbalances that can lead to discomfort and unpredictable behaviour, thereby promoting a healthier, more stable gut environment.

The decision by The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery to incorporate EquiNectar into their horses' diet is a testament to their unwavering commitment to these extraordinary animals' wellbeing. It serves as a strong endorsement of EquiNectar's effectiveness and aligns with their dedication to ensuring peak physical and mental performance from their horses.

Douglas Dundonald, Chairman of Tharos, the company behind EquiNectar, expresses his pride and delight over this partnership. "It's truly humbling to know that EquiNectar will contribute to the wellbeing and performance of the King’s Troop’s magnificent horses. We're thrilled to support an institution that so elegantly marries tradition with excellence."

The whole EquiNectar team echoes this sentiment, taking immense pride in our collaboration with The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery and reaffirming our commitment to helping optimise horses’ digestion.
