Do you find yourself worrying about what you are feeding your horse? Does any little issue with your horse make you question whether you are feeding right?

Meet Dr Nerida McGilchrist

Dr Nerida McGilchrist B Rur. Sc (Hon1) PhD RAnNutr
Nerida graduated from the University of New England with a degree in Rural Science in 1999 and a PhD in Equine Nutrition in 2004. Nerida is a registered animal nutritionist (equine) with the Nutrition Society of Australia.⠀

Nerida founded Equilize Horse Nutrition in 2003 and has been working as a consulting equine nutritionist ever since, providing high level technical support to feed and supplement companies in Australia, Japan, USA and Europe.

The last 20 years has seen Nerida work with more than 30 companies, focusing on product development, education, research and on-farm support. Nerida also developed and commercialised FeedXL and has led the FeedXL team from 2006 until 2022 to bring a science based, yet practical method of assessing equine rations to the horse industries of the world!

A true country girl at heart, Nerida has always had a love of horses, a passion for agriculture and a zeal for and natural understanding of nutrition. In her typical style of combining credible science with practical knowledge and a bunch of props she stole from her kids, Nerida shares her knowledge in a way that is easy to understand and simple to put into practice to improve the health and performance of your own horses.

While Nerida covers all areas of equine nutrition, her particular areas of interest are in gut health, laminitis, safe feeding of high energy feeds (particularly cereal grains), nitrate toxicity, managing large breeding farms, growing horse nutrition, pasture nutrition, bighead disease, mycotoxins and feeding the performance horse.
