A Global Outlook on Equine Nutrition


If there is such a thing as an expert in international equine cuisine, it might be Gulsah Kaya Karasu, DVM. She has traveled the world for the past 15 years, first training to become an equine veterinarian and nutritionist, then sharing what she’s learned with horse owners in a variety of settings.

In the process, she has witnessed firsthand the different norms for filling hay nets and feed buckets. She has also learned that despite cultural differences, many horsekeeping challenges transcend borders.

Born in Turkey, Karasu earned her veterinary degree in Istanbul before deciding to specialize in equine nutrition. “I want to help horse owners understand how nutrition plays a vital role in the health and well-being of their horses.”

Working toward that goal, she has since traveled tirelessly to help people make better nutritional choices for their horses in Austria, the United Kingdom, Scotland, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Poland, the United States, Qatar, Japan and Turkey. “I have worked with horses, consulted with companies or conducted research in several countries,” says Karasu.
