Hygain Nutritional Support

Hygain Nutritional Support

As racehorses retire and move into new careers, there can be a significant change in their nutritional requirements.

The Hygain Nutritional Support initiative can assist new owners in understanding and managing their horse’s transition from a full race feeding program and onto a new diet.

Hygain will provide eligible owners/lessees of newly retired racehorses with three bags of Hygain or Mitavite Feeds following consultation with a Hygain equine nutritionist.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Open to Standardbreds and Thoroughbreds
  • Horse must have retired from racing within the last 12 months
  • New owners/lessees must have taken ownership within the last 30 days
  • Horse must have been domiciled in Tasmania at the time of retirement and the new owner must reside in Tasmania
  • Support is available one-time-only for each eligible horse
  • New owner must agree to be contacted by Hygain
