There are many things that can make horses stressed. Being alone, going to shows, trailer loading, travel, weather, new routine, new stall, new barn, insufficient stall rest and a nervous rider can be some of the stressors. Stress can be expressed in many ways.
Much of a horse’s stress can be relieved by providing consistency and as natural of an environment as possible. This means daily turn out with access to food, waterand companionship at all times.
Show stress is more difficult to remedy. Turn out and horse time are very helpful, but rarely used because of possible injury. To destress a show horse, it needs to be a horse doing horse things.
We provide supplemental stress care for your horses (and dogs) to provide relief and manage their response to stress. We can help relax the responses of your horses’ mind and body to everyday and environmental stress.
