Calm Healthy Horses addresses the issues affecting domestic horses as MANAGEMENT issues not HORSE issues.
Horses are adapted to, and thrive in, semi-arid (DRY) environments (as explained in the above video!); it is by removing them to more temperate climates and confining them to small areas, thereby subjecting them to unsuitable forage & feed, that causes the health, movement & behaviour issues that have become so rampant.
EMS, Pasture-Associated Laminitis, Head-Shaking/Flicking (HS), Sacro-Iliac, PSSM, Staggers, Explosive, Aggressive, Spooky Behaviour plus many more ‘symptoms’ listed on the Health Check ALL resolve when the horse’s environment and forage and feed are rectified.
Fluctuations in the weather, the seasons, application of fertilisers pasture management strategies all influence the nutrient composition of the pasture grass which ultimately affects the metabolism of the horse.
Understanding and acting on the information on this website will be a game changer for achieving your riding and breeding ambitions.
