"Working with Natalie was one of the best practices I implemented in my barn. With 17 horses on my property, feeding all age ranges and performance levels was challenging. Natalie helped me create a efficient, cost effective plan that IMPROVED the balance of nutrition for all the horses. It's a joy to work with someone as knowledgeable as Natalie. I appreciate her support and recommendations immensely. On a scale of 1-10 -- she's a 19!"
"Hello, my name is Doug Leadley. I have managed Orrion Farms for over 20 years. Orrion Farms is a large Arabian horse breeding operation with locations in Ellensburg Washington, and Scottsdale Arizona. I have the horse handling expertise but I never had a comfortable handle on nutrition. My biggest concern was our broodmares and recipient mares. In 2017, I reached out to Natalie Shaw for some counseling. She organized a comprehensive feeding and supplement program for all of our horses. Soon after, our farm Veterinarian Dr. Joe Bergevin commented that our foals legs and foot issues had dropped dramatically. Orrion Farms continues to follow the feeding program Natalie designed."
"I am a dressage instructor and trainer with 40 plus years of experience yet I wasn’t totally satisfied with the results I was getting with current my feeding program. I sought out Natalie's expertise and she has been invaluable in helping us streamline and define the nutrition for all three of our horses that have completely different feed needs. She walked us through the steps of learning how to balance those needs, using the feed company that we prefer, to achieve our performance and health goals. The result reduced our costs by more than 30%. I highly recommend Natalie's course no matter what your experience level is with feeding horses!"
"In the short time that we were able to work together with my Andalusians, Natalie gave me insightful info on sugar content in hay. After she gave me results from the hay test, it was obvious that changes needed to be made. My mares are very easy keepers, plus I have had repeat incidents of colics. With her suggestions of switching to teff hay, plus ration balancer, I have had no colics & my mares just seem happier in general! I am so appreciative of her knowledge. Many thanks!!"
"I am grateful to Natalie Shaw for taking the time to hear what I thought my problem was and gently educating me to what might be going on. Her solution
is not more, expensive grain but developing a balanced, high quality feed program. Natalie is open to experiment-
ation and is open to connecting you to other professionals."
that may be helpful in solving your equine nutrition problems.
The horses have never looked better and I am much more
confident in assessing issues. Thank you Natalie!
"Natalie is a true horsewoman! She completely understands that horses can be everything from high-powered athletes, to foals, to seniors, and that all of them are beloved pets. She is a careful listener and has gone above and beyond to give the best nutritional guidance for each horse on my farm.
Natalie has a wealth of knowledge on equine nutrition which she gladly communicates to her clients in a clear manner. I myself have taken animal nutrition courses in college and have a good understanding of equine nutritional needs. Natalie takes it to the next level. If I've ever had a question that she wasn't 100% sure on, she has reached out to her mentors for verification."
"Natalie is hands on. She came to our farm and personally looked at each of our individual horses. We then worked together to come up with a feed program that worked for the barn as a whole. The effects of our change was dramatic in our horses that were hard keepers."
