Driven by her lifelong passion for horses, she makes sense out of those mind-numbing scientific research studies, using a whole-horse approach to horse care and nutrition.
We’re happy to announce that Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D., has joined Horse Journal. With her down-to-earth approach to equine nutrition, she will give you the same Horse Journal unbiased look at supplements, feeds and other products and recommend the ones she knows are the best choices and best values.
An equine nutrition specialist, Dr. Getty has been called a “pioneer in free choice forage feeding.” Her book “Feed Your Horse Like A Horse” received strong reviews, including one that said she did a better job explaining nutrition than even Horse Journal and EQUUS.
“Feeding your horse properly doesn’t have to be a challenge,” she said. Driven by her lifelong passion for horses, she makes sense out of those mind-numbing scientific research studies, using a whole-horse approach to horse care and nutrition.
A professor at the University of North Texas for over 20 years, Dr. Getty now runs her own private nutrition consultation company, Getty Equine Nutrition LLC (www.gettyequinenutrition.com). She also serves on the prestigious advisory panel of the Equine Sciences Academy (www.equinesciencesacademy.com).
Dr. Getty joins our existing contributing editors–veterinarians Dr. Grant Miller and Dr. Deb Eldredge, and farriers Steven Kraus and Lee Foley–and our staff editors Performance Editor John Strassburger, Associate Editor Margaret Freeman and Editor-in-Chief Cynthia Foley.
