It really seemed to work and ever since, she's been really fit and healthy, so we use it for all the horses now. We find it so easy to use that we even take one of their travel units to the shows."

"We decided to run our own experiment with the hay from our new Haygain steamer, so we replicated the experiment that Haygain had done with some polo ponies. We took dry hay, soaked hay and the steamed hay and put a heap of each in each stable. It worked like a charm and every one of our horses repeatedly chose the steamed hay. They absolutely love it and we have seen no traces of the dust cough to which one of them was prone since we switched to Haygain!"

"We use Haygain as it eliminates dust but maintains all the nutrition. This is vital for competition horses whilst at home and travelling. Before using Haygain our horses would often cough and need to clear their airways after a long journey, but with Haygain we can dramatically reduce the dust they breathe in on the lorry. It’s easy to use on the go and smells yummy too!"

Verity is a ground-breaking blind international dressage rider
Represented Great Britain as part of Para Team GB
Has competed and won at able bodied Prix St. George level (the highest level ever achieved by a blind rider) and is now competing at Inter 1 level
"Being a blind international dressage rider, my relationship with my amazing horse Szekit is all about feel and Szekit feels great with Haygain. Szekit doesn’t have a resperatory problem but as a high performance competition horse the reduction in the dust and bacteria in his feed with the steamed hay allows him to perform at his best and me to breath easy also knowing he’s in tip top condition for the job at hand. The other major plus is that on a chilly winters morning the hay steamer makes the yard smell devine as well as providing a warm snuggle spot for my guide dog Uffa and his best buddy Zena the yard cat"

"Forage is the most important part of any horses diet, that's why using Haygain is essential. The elimination of dust, mould spores and other impurities is a necessity and the reason that we use Haygain steamers at Gansera-Lévêque Racing; as the old saying goes: prevention is better than cure!"
