Video: The Importance of Amino Acids for Horses

In this special episode of Ask the Vet, we asked Dr. Nerida Richards, PhD, Equine Nutrition Specialist and founder of, to answer your nutrition-based horse health questions. In this video, Dr. Gray sits down with Dr. Richards to discuss why amino acids are so important to a horse's diet, as well as some things you'll start to see in horses who have an amino acid deficiency. They even play around with children's building blocks - don't worry, it'll make total sense when you see why!
