As part of our huge range of equestrian supplies here at Houghton Country, we stock a wide array of horse calmers to help combat anxious behaviours so your horse or pony can cope more successfully with the stress in their life whether that is a show environment or a vets visit from brands such as NAF, Equine Products and Dodson & Horrell.
We stock horse calming supplements to help your equine friend with their focus and concentration which can greatly impact performance especially at competitions which is why many products adhering to BETA NOPS and having their raw materials tested in FEI approved labs.
We have supplements which have been created for either short or long term use to reduce anxiety or fizzy behaviour. A short term nutritional calmer is usually given via syringe into the horse's mouth on an empty or near-empty stomach a few hours before a scheduled stressful occurrence such as a farrier visit, clipping or vets appointment. For longer-term use for horses which have a naturally more sensitive disposition, there is a range of powders and liquids which are mixed into your horse's feed and build-up in their system over time.
Nutritional equine calmers can help keep horse's and ponies cooler and less sensitive so that they can perform at their best whether on a hack or in the ring but they have a limited influence. It is always best to take a holistic approach and check all possible influences on your horse's behaviour especially if it is a recent occurrence or if it is a new horse.
