Fox Red Media
The team at Fox Red has regularly commented on the need for an independent voice in the equestrian sector that speaks with authority and who can be relied upon as a trustworthy, reliable source, not influenced by marketing spend or historic reputation.
After working with Dr David Marlin for many years, it soon became apparent that there was an opportunity for him to spearhead the creation of a new club that provided horse owners with credible, unbiased product reviews, surveys, latest research findings and a wealth of other information, communicated out by David and other experts. And so DrDavidMarlincom was born. Fox Red and Dr David have collaborated to bring you this exciting new development and will continue to evolve the membership in line with the needs and aspirations of horse owners all over the world.
