RFD-TV “Chris Cox Horsemanship” episode to feature equine nutrition and Nutrena® feeds

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — RFD-TV viewers will get a lesson in nutrition for pleasure horses, mares and foals in an upcoming episode of “Chris Cox Horsemanship.” Cox’s guest will be Abby Keegan, Nutrena® equine nutrition consultant. The show airs Tuesday, July 21 at 12:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. CDT.

The one-hour program will cover a range of topics, including: how to determine a horse’s nutrition needs using weight, body condition and activity level; amino acids and other nutrition building blocks; and high-quality Nutrena® equine feeds.

“It can be a challenge to feed horses the best balance of nutrients every day,” says Cox. “The Nutrena® brand has been devoted to the care of animals for more than 80 years and I’m pleased to bring Abby on to teach viewers how to keep their horses healthy and active.”

At home in Texas, Cox feeds his horses SafeChoice® from the Nutrena® line, a controlled-starch formula, scientifically balanced for horses in all life stages. “I’ve seen the difference that the SafeChoice® formula has made with my horses, and I’m proud to have Nutrena® as a sponsor,” says Cox.
