Briony is a registered equine nutritionist with a wealth of experience, including over seven years of commercial experience, most latterly working as Senior Nutritionist and Nutrition Team Leader for one of the UK’s leading feed companies.

During Briony’s time as a nutritionist she has worked in various disciplines and yards, working with a range of horse owners, from leisure riders, to high level international and Olympic performance riders and leading British breeders. As part of her role supporting these riders, Briony has attended high profile events such as Burghley and Badminton Horse Trials and the British Breeding Futurity events on a yearly basis.

Briony has also appeared in many of the UKs leading equestrian publications such as Horse & Hound; Horse & Rider; Pony Magazine; Equine Health Magazine; Horse and British Breeder Magazine to name a few.

Qualifications / Affiliated Bodies / Regulated Bodies



Briony has an undergraduate degree in Equine and Human Sports Science and a Master’s degree in Equine Science. As well as consulting in nutrition, Briony also holds a degree level lecturing post in Equine and Animal Science at Writtle University College.

Briony has also achieved the status of ‘Registered Nutritionist’ under the Association for Nutrition (AfN). This is important, as the title ‘nutritionist’ is not a protected term in the UK, meaning effectively anyone can use it. The Association for Nutrition holds a voluntary register of nutritionists: in order to join this register, your training and experience would have demonstrated that you have the knowledge, skills and competence to deliver the work of a nutritionist.

Further to this, Briony is fully insured and, not being employed by a feed company or supplier, can offer unbiased professional advice.
