Saracen is an independent, family owned business with more than 170 years of experience in manufacturing animal feeds. In 1994, Saracen launched Veteran Mix, the first diet specifically tailored to meet the needs of the older horse. Since then, Saracen have produced Enduro-100, used by many of the leading endurance stables in the UK and Middle East and more recently, Shape-Up™ Balancer, a specialist low calorie balancer for good doers, laminitics and those who need to watch their weight.
Saracen Horse Feeds Ltd. has always been dedicated to producing nutritionally sound, innovative formulas and providing customers with accessible personal service. These commitments led Saracen to Kentucky Equine Research (KER), founded by Dr. Joe Pagan Ph.D. in 1988. KER is the most prolific independent equine research centre in the world, entirely committed to the advancement of breeding and athletic performance through nutrition. The aim at KER is to enhance the understanding of equine nutrition and exercise physiology, and apply this knowledge to produce healthier, more athletic horses.
Saracen's collaboration has allowed them the chance to consistently provide nutritional solutions with unique, progressive feeds that can make a real difference, along with the science to support them. RE-LEVE®, Level-Grow™ and Super Fibre Pencils are good examples of concept feeds that have been produced as joint projects.
