Horses behaviour can change throughout the year; commonly mares can become difficult around spring time and it is around this time that our sales of equine calming products peak! When it comes to assessing if your horse requires a calmer, we always recommend you firstly assess your horse's level of training, fit of tack and we also suggest getting his back and teeth checked. Reduction in your horse's food ration or increasing exercise can help to reduce excitability (when excitability is a result of excess energy levels) but if you still find he is to sharp, a calmer or calming supplement may be a wise investment. The supplementation of magnesium into the horse's diet can have a marked effect on temperament, which is why we stock a full range of calming supplements from brands such as Dodson & Horrell, Maxavita and Feel Good 30. If you are experiencing continual behaviour problems, it may be worth discussing them with your vet and trainer.
