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. Paddy already knew many well-known people throughout
the equestrian world through his years in the horse business;
he went to the top riders in the world and asked them to
try the HorseFirst range on their own horses. After many
months of trials and feedback, the results were overwhelming!
