Allen and Page sponsor Veteran Horse Society
The Veteran Horse Society is delighted to announce that their new sponsor will be Allen & Page, Quality Horse Feeds.
Not only will Allen & Page be working with the VHS on improving the welfare of older horses but they will also be sponsoring and supporting the Veteran Horse Society Showing and Dressage Series and the first National VHS Championship in September, which will be hosting the VHS Supreme Final, to find the "Allen & Page Veteran Horse of the Year".
The Society will continue to promote the welfare and feeding of older horses with the assistance of Allen & Page, a company whose guiding principles are to help owners feed their horses as naturally as possible and to make really beneficial horse feeds to help with specific feeding problems.
Julianne Aston, Founder of the VHS, spoke from Head Office this week. "We are delighted that Allen & Page will be working with us on every aspect of feeding the older horse. Together we will be continuing to work towards improving and promoting the lives of all veteran horses and ponies," she said.
"We are delighted to be supporting the Veteran Horse Society,” said Sales Director Tim Page. “We are genuinely striving to improve equine nutrition and educate owners. We are not just here to sell feed; it is all about doing the right thing – ethically, nutritionally and environmentally and this is never more important that when considering the health and well-being of our population of older horses."
The VHS continues to promote the feeding and welfare of older horses by holding their very successful Veteran Horse Qualifying Showing Series around the UK.

The Centre is currently closed to the public after the damaging storms. We are doing our best to repair the extensive damage, until this date we have to ensure the safety of our visitors and remain closed. The office is still open to staff and applications are being processed as normal.

We are in need of any rugs or equipment for the horses. If you are thinking of a ‘clearout’ we gratefully receive any goods from rugs to wheel barrows. Also office equipment and any old surplus stationery, we can recycle most items, or we are able to sell these in our small second hand shop, to raise funds for the horses. Thank you
