HorseFirst was founded in 2004 by Paddy Hughes, a well-known and respected horse producer in the show jumping and eventing spheres, who has sent horses all over the world. Having tried and tested a huge variety of equine dietary supplements during his thirty years in the horse business, Paddy felt that the products that were available were disappointing and left a lot to be desired.
Over the following three years, with Paddy's equestrian knowledge and the expertise of the best chemist and equine-related nutritionist that he could find, HorseFirst was formed. Paddy formed a team and they spent their time researching, formulating and testing a new range of equine supplements on Paddy's own horses. After testing many different formulations to get the best results possible, Paddy was then happy and confident to bring HorseFirst to the market place.

Top riders such as Michael Whitaker, Ludger Beerbaum, Jessica Kurten and William Fox Pitt were more than pleased with all the HorseFirst products they had tried.

Paddy's aim from the start was to use only the highest quality ingredients available and to offer the horse owner a range of products with the highest levels of active-ingredient inclusion of any supplements on the market. HorseFirst is now known as the supplements range that works...
