Herbs for Horses
Herbs are an important part of every horse's diet. The variety of medicinal and seasoning herbs on natural pastures is very diverse. Unfortunately, due to increasing agricultural use, this diversity is steadily declining. The hay offered usually consists of fatty grasses and only a few valuable herbs that are necessary for horse feeding. Learn here which herbs are important for horses and how to supplement horse feed with natural herbs.
Horse herbs and ready-made herb blends can be purchased as feed supplements from good specialty stores. Whether you choose ready-made herb blends or special individual herbs, herbal feeding is an important part of horse feeding and helps keep your beloved horse healthy. Of course, you can also mix your own herbs for horses. It is important to inform yourself adequately about the functions in the composition.
In the summer season, many tasty and valuable herbs can also be found fresh in the pasture. Commonly found is the plantain, which is known as a medicinal herb for the respiratory tract due to its antibiotic effect. Wild thyme or also called "quendel" can often be found on alpine meadows and rocky slopes. However, in winter, the supply of fresh herbs is scarce. Therefore, it is important to supplement horse feed with herbs according to the seasons.

What should you consider when purchasing herbs for horses?
When purchasing horse herbs, it is crucial to prioritize high-quality products. Just like other items, herbs can become old and go bad, develop mold and produce toxic substances, or become contaminated with pesticides from agricultural practices, all of which can negatively affect the herb's quality. At Ewalia, we use certified herbs that are of pharmacopoeial grade. This guarantees not only tested purity but also an active content of active ingredients. When feeding horse herbs, it is also essential to consider which bodily processes and organs each herb is intended to support.
