essential info

There’s no need to know the many properties of every oil when offering them to horses. In fact, it’s sometimes better to have no preconceptions and look up the properties after your horse has chosen them. You may think you know what your horse needs but you don’t, he does!

As an example, often the cause of a problem is emotional.  If your horse gets anxious when he’s left alone, you may think he wants some oils known to help anxiety. What he may actually chose are oils which help him get over being separated from his mother at weaning, the cause of his anxiety.

The one golden rule is never force an oil on a horse. Always give them the freedom to move away.   For more info click here.
