Briony is a registered equine nutritionist with a wealth of experience, including over seven years of commercial experience, most recently 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 an undergraduate degree in Equine and Human Sports Science from Aberystwyth University and a Masters degree in Equine Science from The Royal Agricultural University. As well as consulting in nutrition, Briony also lectures undergraduate courses in Equine and Animal Science at Writtle University College, where she specialises in animal nutrition and grassland management.
Briony has also achieved the status of ‘Registered Nutritionist’ under the Association for Nutrition (AfN). 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.
In her spare time Briony has a PRE gelding which she rides and competes and a Welsh Section A which she drives.
