ABOUT THE FOUNDER OF LCHH
Natalie Shaw’s passion to provide better forage options for horse owners grew from her decade long experiences as an equine nutrition consultant in the Northwest. Her interest in equine nutrition industry began while working at a local feed store to support herself through the Animal Science undergraduate program at Montana State University.
Natalie was sought out and hired directly out of college by a successful Fortune 100 agricultural cooperative and tasked with growing the equine feed business for the company. After five years of industry experience, she took the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) equine test to be professionally certified in her field.
As a result of Natalie’s expertise and interest in forage options for horses severely metabolic and/or overweight, she set out to provide a centralized resource for horse owners needing to locate growers and retailers of low carbohydrate forage. Low Carb Horse Hay was developed to address those needs, plus go one important step further – – provide CERTIFICATION of the carbohydrate level of the various forage options, so buyers could trust the product and the source. Like all horse owners, Natalie puts the horse’s health first.
Gaining national attention, Natalie is known as an excellent educator and public speaker whether presenting to professionals, students or veterinarians. Not only has she excelled in her profession, she is a lifetime member, graduate “A” and current National Examiner for the United States Pony Club. When not working full time or progressing in her graduate program, she instructs regionally and nationally for the USPC.
Natalie lives and breathes the equine industry at work and at play. She is unique in her field in that she is actively riding and competing, which means that her consulting is modified and improved by personal experience. Natalie has experienced metabolic problems in her own horses and takes pride in making mature, realistic recommendations to her equestrian friends and clients. She is currently competing in the sport of eventing on her Swedish Warmblood mare, Stella Doro, throughout the Northwest.
