What to Expect When Using Horse Calming Supplements
What are calming supplements? Calming supplements are daily formulas that provide targeted support to help horses feel confident, focused, and at ease. These formulas are either nutrient-based or herbal-based, and may include ingredients like magnesium, vitamin B1, valerian, chamomile, and vervain.
Why calming supplements are a smart choice
Stressful, nerve-wracking, and tense are not the words you want used to describe your rides. Luckily, there’s more you can do than cross your fingers and hope for the best. Calming supplements provide targeted support for a healthy nervous system and a balanced temperament to help make riding more fun for both of you!
What to expect from calming supplements
The timeline for a calming supplement will vary from horse to horse, but you may start to see signs of your horse staying relaxed and attentive after a couple of weeks. If not, that’s ok, because for some horses it can take 4-6 weeks for the supplement to reach its full benefit. Once your horse has been on the supplement for a few weeks, look for signs that he’s able to focus on the job at hand, allowing you both to have more fun doing what you love. We also recommend observing your horse during events or times that would have previously caused him stress, and watch for him to keep his cool.
How to support success
Continuing to provide daily support will help your horse stay calm, cool, and collected all year long. And remember, “naughty” behavior isn’t always just an attitude problem. Check out this blog for a list of other things you can rule out to help your horse feel – and behave – his best.
