  • Our sister Mars Horsecare company, Spiller's, designed a fun equine scavenger hunt game you can play without leaving your house! The rules of the game are
    • Find as many of the items on the list you can without leaving your house or garden
    • If you have more than one horse, you can have 1 point for each horse’s photo / book title you find
    • Once you’ve completed the scavenger hunt, total up your items and shout BINGO if you manage to find them all. 
    • There are no prizes for taking part as we reckon most of you will get top points!
