This product can be mixed with your horses daily feed (but we recommend creating a Herbal Infusion) at the following amounts:

  • Large Horse (450kg+) - 40g per day, this can be split between feeds or given at once

Unsuitable for pregnant mares

Feeding as an Infusion

Many herbs, including Liquorice Root, can be fed as an Infusion, this helps the active ingredients become more readily available and more easily absorbed by your horse. 

  1. Put the daily required amount of herbs in a bucket (quantities stated above)
  2. Add 1/2 pint (300ml) of boiling water to the herbs, mix and then allow to cool
  3. When cooled, the whole infusion (including the herbs) can be used to dampen down your horses feed.

If you don't have access to a kettle you can just soak your herbs overnight and this will also help your horse absorb the natural vitamins, minerals & active ingredients.
