Ashley Wagner, PhD

Our highly in-demand products were the outcome of what our founder, Dr. Ashley Wagner, saw as a need for the equine industry: natural, clinically proven, safe, and effective products.  Her love for horses and the industry is what led her to pursue animal science B.S. and M.S. degrees at Virginia Tech, and ultimately, a Ph.D. in equine nutrition at the University of Kentucky.  Dr. Ashley founded Equinutrix Nutrition Solutions to meet the needs of the horse and their owners in a safe and scientifically proven way.  Countless hours are spent working with clinical nutritionists, veterinarians, and academic equine scientists in order to create and test each product in this line.  The products of Equinutrix Nutrition Solutions begin functioning at the molecular level to enhance your horses’ physiology and metabolism.  All of the Equinutrix Nutrition Solutions products are show and competition safe.

Katie DeLano, MS

Katie DeLano grew up in the Midwest and started riding as soon as she discovered horses. Eventually, vacation trail rides turned into a desire to take lessons and ride consistently. Throughout her junior career, Katie showed in the upper level hunters and jumpers across the country. Katie followed in her father and grandfather’s footsteps, attending Kansas State University to earn a BS in Agricultural Business and a minor in Animal Science. Her undergraduate research experiences in equine nutrition led her to pursue a graduate degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Animal and Poultry Sciences with an emphasis in equine nutrition through the completion of her thesis, “Trends in Equine Nutrition and the Effects of a Hindgut Buffer Product in Overconditioned Horses.” As part of her graduate program, she spent time at the MARE Center, a research and extension center for the university. This graduate program allowed her to gain experience in equine extension, farm management, and muscle and veterinary medicine research. In the heart of Virginia horse country, the MARE Center allowed her to continue riding and competing, as well as fox hunting. After graduation, Katie stayed in Virginia, and moved to the Eastern Shore to begin working for Equinutrix Nutrition.
