At Forme Equine the details matter to us and we genuinely care about helping horses and their owners. Together with Equine vet Francessa (Chessie) Nossell, Forme Equine has put together some advice, additional reading and product recommendations for a range of common conditions that often benefit from dietary changes.
Chessie (BVSc, Distinction) is an equine veterinarian who graduated from Massey University NZ in 2017. She started her career on the Kapiti Coast, working at Vets on Riverbank, before heading overseas to work in the UK for 2 years. She has a passion for equine medicine, geratric care, and educating people on horse care.
