Celebrating 20 Years of World-Class Nutritional Science
Saracen Horse Feeds are proudly celebrating an exclusive 20-year partnership with Kentucky Equine Research, World Leaders in Equine Research and Nutrition.
Bridging the gap between the research community, the feed mill and the horse, Kentucky Equine Research delivers the very latest equine nutrition research and product development to every sack of Saracen Horse Feeds. Saracen Horse Feeds have been working closely with Kentucky Equine Research since 2001, and we rely on their unique expertise in feed formulation, ingredient technology and technical support to ensure every feed we offer meets the nutritional needs of the modern equine athlete at all stages of life, development, and activity.
Kentucky Equine Research
Founded in 1988 by President Joe D. Pagan, Ph.D. , the company has one of the most prolific private equine research programmes in the world. They conduct independent research in order to advance our knowledge of equine nutrition and exercise physiology, and apply that knowledge to a research-led approach to the nutritional health, wellbeing and performance of all horses throughout their life.
Since the company began, Kentucky Equine Research has delivered timely information, proven products and practical technical advice. In 2005, Dr. Pagan received the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) Award in Equine Nutrition Research. This award recognises excellence in equine nutrition research and the contributions of an individual to equine feeding management practices and the equine feed industry.
From their research centres in Lexington, Kentucky and Ocala, Florida, Kentucky Equine Research conducts extensive research trials designed to improve the health and wellbeing of horses by targeting specific problems and finding nutritional solutions, including exercise studies, digestibility, and palatability trials. This wealth of scientific research is an integral part of the success of the Saracen Horse Feeds range which continues to remain at the forefront of global performance.
