Promoting a calm and content equine temperament will benefit the well-being of the horse as well as promote confidence and contentment in the rider.
Some horses are naturally more prone to being reactive and can spook at the smallest of triggers, while others exhibit such behaviours as a result of external factors and situations that sometimes cannot necessarily be controlled.
In some horses spookiness can be due to a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium oxide is the primary ingredient in many of the quality equine calming products on the market
Horse calmers can also be useful for calming your horse when experiencing or recovering from injury, before a competition, travelling and vet or farrier/trimmer visits.
