It is well-established within the horse world today that colic is the number one medical killer of domestic horses. Not so well known is that the way we feed and care for horses today very well may be one of the primary causes of induced colic.

The changes we need to make to reduce our horse’s risk for colic are often simple and obvious. Increase turnout time. Feed small meals more frequently throughout the day. Feed more hay and less grain.

In an age centered on what is most convenient, the basic care of horses as practiced by horsemen decades ago has been lost. Those who suffer as a result are the horses.

The Crusade Against Equine Colic is a movement empowering all horse people to learn how to reduce our horses’ risk for colic – and to share that knowledge with fellow equestrians. Simply, our goal is to save as many horses as possible from deadly and debilitating bouts of equine colic through educating you – the horse men and women who care for them.
