Chamomile flowers 900g

Chamomile tea has been used for hundreds if not thousands of years to promote calm and a good night's sleep. It is very useful in this capacity for horses and in addition is very useful for minor digestive problems including indigestion, wind and bloating.

Chamomile is ideal for helping an anxious horse to relax without causing any drowsiness, or affecting their performance. It can be used in particularly stressful times such as travelling, shows, box rest etc.

Chamomile is helpful for those horses whose anxiety is not helped by a magnesium supplement, as they are either not magnesium deficient, or their behaviour is not caused by the deficiency.

As with all calmers, it is important to also consider all factors affecting a horses behaviour, such as hard feed, turnout, pain, fit of tack etc.

Feeding Guidelines: Feed 30g per day

Feeding as an Infusion

Many herbs, including Chamomile, can be fed in their dried form, but this may mean that it sometimes takes a while for full effects to be seen.

There is a way to speed up the effect! By simply making an infusion with the herb, the active constituents are made more readily available and are more easily absorbed by the horse.

Ideally, add a ½ litre/pint of boiling water to the herbs to be given that day. When cooled, the whole infusion (including the herbs) can be used to dampen down the horses feed. If access to a kettle is not practical, soaking overnight in cold water will also help to release the active constituents.
