Primero Equine was born from a need to address equine nutritional health in the 21st Century and remind us all of the horse's evolved digestive system and how we must strive to meet the fundamental nutritional needs of the horse within practical management regimes.
The company was formed by Linda Linnane BSc (Hons) after spending many years studying & working with horses in southern Spain, where she witnessed many cases of feed related pathologies.
On returning to England in 1992, Linda continued to study equine health and performance and graduated in 1997 with a First Class Honours Degree in Equine Science and Physiology. During this period of time, she carried out some specialist equine research at the Faculty of Veterinary Science in Cordoba, investigating muscle physiology in a group of Andalusian stallions. This research became the subject of her Thesis and was later presented at the International Conference of Equine Sports Medicine & Science, then subsequently published in the International Journal of Anatomy. She has since written and published several articles on equine nutritional health and continues to work and teach on this subject throughout Europe and the Middle East.
From 1997 - 2000 Linda concentrated on researching and formulating 'Total' horse feed, initially for fibre & nutrient deficient horses in southern Spain. The feed was subsequently launched in the UK at the British Equine Event 2000 and continues to enjoy success in the UK, Spain and throughout Europe, where owners continually report positive improvement in horses of all types in various disciplines - without the use and expense of supplements & extras.
