where it all began

Intelligent Horsecare was founded by cheeky scots-lass from the islands and is run by a somewhat unusual southern African who met over the pages of a book they had both read across the counter of a village shop. Although growing up on opposite sides of the world they quickly discovered that not only did they have similar eccentric backgrounds but their lives had evolved similar lines of thought half the world away. When not discussing horses, photographing horses, debating issues relating to horses, one or both can be found out with the horses (either theirs or someone else’s).

In those brief moments when horses are not the topic of conversation you’ll find that dogs are being walked, sheep wrestled with, bales rolled by hand across awkward fields or the weird and wonderful foundlings of the wild world that have arrived in Sylvia’s kitchen being rehabilitated for release.

what makes us different

We’ve searched far and wide, to find the best solutions to make keeping horses that little easier and our horses’ lives a little healthier, while aiming to seek the most natural solutions, finally choosing products that what best met our (and most importantly, our horses’) needs. Many of these items were often difficult to source and had to be specially imported, some we liked so much that we decided to share them with other horse owners here in the UK. We hope you’ll find these items as helpful as we have with the dilemmas of domestic horse-keeping.

You’ll also find Tips & Links to a few other products and sites that we believe are effective and worthwhile having a look at, they may be just what you need. We are however of the view that in the end equine health and happiness comes from simple proactive management practices and cannot be bought in bottles or boxes; after all, there is not replacement for the time you spend with your horse and no shortcuts to growing happy healthy horses. So next time you’re mucking out in the dark with the rain pouring down while you pony supervises, just remember, its time well spent because they’re worth it, well, most of the time.

Thanks for Visiting!
