Why choose gavi equestrian?

As a Registered Dietitian and equestrian, my mission is to bridge the gap between nutrition and the equestrian world.

"I reached out to Natalie for help while training for the 2018 Mongol Derby, the longest and toughest race in the world. I wanted to make sure I was getting the most out of my training sessions while preparing for the race as well as how to properly fuel for peak performance during the competition. It was important to me to consult an expert that understood the equestrian athlete’s dietary needs. As a pescatarian, I was also worried I wasn’t getting enough protein for my rigorous training program.

 

Natalie worked with me one-on-one to create an individualized meal plan that also worked with my training schedule to provide the right nutrients at the optimum time. I could tell Natalie really wanted to help, and she spent a lot of time asking specific questions and planning out a strategy. She also talked me through the completed meal plan and explained why she chose certain recipes, which made it even easier to follow. As a bonus, meals were easy to make and delicious! I would recommend Natalie without hesitation!"

"As an equestrian myself, I know there is no off-season. I also know how much you invest in the health and fitness of your horse, but how much are you investing in yourself? Your horse deserves the healthiest you, and I can help you get there."
