Herbal Rig (vervain free) 900g

Herbal Rig (vervain free) is a blend of four herbs, Agnus castus, Valerian and Chamomile. This blend can help geldings who show riggy behaviour as well as stallions whose behaviour is affected by hormone levels. Agnus castus helps to normalise hormone levels, whilst valerian and chamomile have a calming effect.

This is a useful blend 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 defiency.

It should be noted that Herbal Rig contains valerian which is banned by the Jockey Club and FEI. Therefore it is recommended that owners check the ruling on valerian with the competitive organisation when competiting.

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 30-50g daily

Feeding as an Infusion

Many herbs, including Herbal Rig, can be fed in their dried form, but this may mean that it sometimes takes a while for full benefits 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.
