Dr. Duren formed Performance Horse Nutrition, LLC® in 2002 where he consults with feed manufacturers, veterinarians and horse owners throughout the world. Dr. Duren is the author of the book “The 101 Most Frequently Asked Horse Nutrition Questions”, and a co-author of the book “The Concise Guide To Nutrition In The Horse”.

The difference between Dr. Duren (Performance Horse Nutrition) and other equine nutritionists is that he is a real horseperson. Dr. Duren has owned horses his entire life and truly understands the connection between diet and performance. He has owned competitive horses and understands the investment of time and training and realizes that diet should be a factor that helps the horse not limits the horse.
