Former professional flat jockey Charlotte Mitchell has joined the SPILLERS® team as Thoroughbred Nutritionist for the East of the UK. She brings to the company a wealth of knowledge and practical understanding in this important sector of the equine feed market.
Charlotte was a professional flat jockey for 11 years. In the UK and UAE she rode 50 winners from around 1,000 rides. Prior to this she gained an Equine Science (BSc Hons) Degree at Hartpury College and used this education during her time working in both Racing and Stud yards.
Being heavily involved in the industry, Charlotte is passionate about Thoroughbreds and has re-homed two ex-racers – one of whom she raced on. Both horses have been retrained, with one now turning her hand to eventing and the other show jumping and showing. Charlotte also has a spotted British miniature that she shows.
Charlotte said: “It is extremely exciting to be joining such a sought after feed company, that has exceptionally strong team members and high class scientific research. I can’t wait to start helping trainers and studs with their Thoroughbred nutrition needs.”
SPILLERS® produces feeds to suit all types, including a range of superior fibres and balancers, Laminitis Trust approved products and SPILLERS® Alfalfa-Pro Fibre which carries the BETA Equine Gastric Ulceration Syndrome (EGUS) Certification Mark. SPILLERS® nutritionists offer free yard visits for yards of 10 or more horses and can also be found at many competitions, camps, race meets and horse sales.
