Double H Groom Talks Diet & Supplements With BioStar


Before landing at Double H Farm, Torey worked for some of the most famous and prestigious riders & trainers including: John and Beezy Madden, Lauren Hough, and Laura Kraut.

Since his start at Double H in 2010, Torey has gotten to know the whole food diet very well.  "Initially I was like what is all this?" Says Torey, "I was used to barns where horses got one type of feed and that was it. Just feed a scoop or so to each horse.

"But at Double H there were all these bins full of different ingredients like oats, barley,flax and beet pulp. I avoided setting up the feed because it seemed to complicated. But now it's so easy. It's second nature."


What brought you to Double H Farm?

Torey: I was tutoring children with math and reading disabilities (dyslexia and autism) and living in Florida . The economy really hurt the private tutoring business. I knew Quentin and Cayce Harrison from the show circuit before I went to work for them. I started at Double H in January 2010. I can honestly say I enjoy my job at Double H every day.

Did you know much about feeding whole food before you came to Double H?

Torrey: Initially I was like: what is all this? I was used to barns where horses got one type of feed and that was it. Just feed a scoop or so to each horse. But at Double H there were all these bins full of different ingredients like oats, barley, flax, and beet pulp. I avoided setting up the feed because it seemed to complicated.
But now it's so easy. It's second nature.


What's so different about feeding a whole food diet?

Mike: You can't really customize a feed program with processed feeds.
It's easy to customize whole foods for each horse and what that horse needs. I love that.

We can take care of each horse as an individual.
BioStar has been so helpful in my understanding of which food I need to feed more of for weight gain and what food I need for horses that need energy in the ring.
