The best equine joint supplements for stiff muscles.

Equine joint supplements don't need to be full of artificial additives and chemicals. Herbs are often found to be the best horse joint supplement and can be used to help maintain a healthy musculo-skeletal system, which is critical in the case of older horses. Many horses become stiff because of old age, injuries or poor nutrition. By supplementing your horse's diet with natural equine joint supplements such as essential herbs, you can help maintain healthy, flexible joints and a much more free moving horse. Laminitis and navicular also create similar problems for horses and can be treated with the same herbs in a maintenance fashion.

General health for horses

The general indicator of health for horses can be seen in their appearance. This can be a good indication of your horses internal well being. Prevention of ill health for horses is always a much cheaper and easier road to travel and the Brookby Herbs Herbal Health blend has been designed as  exactly that, a preventative and general maintenance blend. When you think of the the general health of horses we often think of a shiny coat and bright eyes. Most horse skin conditions are treated externally to the skin while ignoring the internal state of health. Herbs work inwardly by restoring, strengthening and nourishing the whole body and can therefore help to create a naturally shiny coat and act as a great natural hoof care for horses.



Horses with allergies and hayfever can find relief with herbal remedies
