Balanced Horse Feeds are thrilled to welcome International Dressage rider Matt Hicks to their fold of sponsored riders.

Based at Hurstbourne Equestrian Centre in Hampshire, Matt has enjoyed a huge amount of success in his career claiming four national titles and regularly competing at home and in International competitions abroad.

Originally from Wales, Matt picked up his love of horses from a Shetland pony called Camellia before progressing into an eventing career, at the age of 21. In 2002 he made the decision to concentrate full time on dressage and has never looked back.

A BD accredited coach Matt currently spends time teaching and bringing on young horses and riders, as well as competing his Grand Prix rides Excalibur and Sheepcote Walnut. Matt has worked hard over the years to establish a great understanding of his horses and their way of going and this includes understanding what they need to perform at their best.

Balanced Horse Feeds have been working with Matt over the last few months to ensure all the horses on his yard are happy, healthy and being fed correctly for their work. With over 30 years’ experience in efficiently feeding horses, Balanced have been able to create a range of formulated feeds specifically targeted to certain equine needs. Balanced believe passionately that the grass roots of efficient nutrition means no hassle feed from the bag, no extra additives and no compromise with the composition.

Matt Hicks commented about the partnership “I am really excited to have joined the Balanced Team. Since feeding Balanced Horse Feeds I have found all of my horses are feeling well within themselves, as well as looking great on the outside. Each of my horses are individuals and some are definitely harder to please than others, but even the fussiest in the team has enjoyed their feeds. Working with Team Balanced has been great as they have really taken the time to understand what my horses need to perform at their best and I know exactly what is going into their feeds and that it is top quality.”

Balanced Horse Feeds Owner Ian Adams-Lane said “Matt is an extremely talented horseman who understands the importance of correct feeding as part of a wider regime. We are thrilled to be working with him and his team of horses, and look forward to following their success.”
