Saracen Horse Feeds

Saracen is an independent, family owned business with more than 170 years of experience in manufacturing animal feeds. Saracen became a limited company in its own right in 1989, and remains within the Lillico Group and under the command of the fourth generation of the founding family, Patrick Walker.

The company takes pride in its traditional family heritage, and stays true to the founding values of trust, integrity, quality, and commitment to exceptional customer service.

In challenging environments, Saracen continues to combine these values with modern manufacturing capabilities and innovative, research-led formulations keep us at the forefront of modern feed manufacture.

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.

With our range of feeds, Saracen have brought together the everyday items needed for feeding different types of horses in varying stages of life and activity, growth and development. The feeds continue to provide the top quality nutrition you expect from Saracen, and it doesn’t have to be expensive. When fed correctly, Saracen products can be very cost effective due to their nutrient density. Read about our “Cooling Mix Trial” where we compared the nutrient density of Saracen Cooling Mix plus Herbs, with budget cooling mixes, and find out if you could save money and improve the efficiency of your feed.

Saracen has an “open declaration” policy, which means that every ingredient that we use is declared on our feed labels, and we work to fixed formulations to protect the integrity and quality of our diets.
