Herbal Programs for the Equine
Hormonal Health for Mares & Fillies
A Suggested Management Program and the provision of traditional herbal formulas via a plant based - herbal top dressing for the Support of Hormonal and Digestive Health.
Add a pinch or two of the suggested herbs per feeding with a little honey water to get them used to them if necessary, see our article, Introducing Your Horse To Herbs. After a few days or one week, use the suggested full herbal dose if your horse is accepting them in his feed. Many horses don’t like the herbs at first, it is foreign to them, yet after a while, most will attack the feed tub to get them. Patience is sometimes required at this time. Many of our horses, after some time of using the herbs, now will eat a blend straight out of our hands, garlic and others with no problem and no grain, just herbs!
Beauty and the Beast – Herbs traditionally used for balancing and soothing hormonal discomfort, often associated with athletic mares, or mares with difficult cycles and sensitivities, also used traditionally to support the side effects of over growth of hair, due to pituitary tumors or imbalances, can be used by both males and females in the equine world.

Suggested Environmental Changes:
Accessibility to the earth’s natural elements is essential to the health of the reproductive system, in mares, stallions and foals. Even an equine living in a barn or stall, or paddock can still have more of a natural life by looking closely at what is at hand to provide the most natural settings and environment. By providing the most natural foods possible, chemical free, the least processed, unpelleted, unrefined foods in the most whole state, an owner or trainer will bring the horses in his care to the most potential both athletically and mentally.
Add to this stall horse toys, or essential oils for soothing, calming or other conditions as needed.
Purchase low to no pesticide hays, feed minimal grains, and add fresh herbs as well as, veggies, flax meal, greens and other foods to the feed tub to provide the horse with greater health and less stress.
High-carb hays and grains, and processed foods, may cause sugar sensitivities and over acid digestive conditions, resulting in colic type symptoms and cystic or painful heat cycles.
As darkness, and the stillness of the night and the moonlight and stars is essential to the sexual, and regenerative state of mares, so must sunshine be part of a healthy mares daily life. A high stress barn, with music playing day and night, careless or mean care givers, and stressed out humans, can and will affect the health of the horse. Consider all aspects of the horse, as you seek to affirm health in her mental and physical state.
Horses are creatures of nature. Although they are incredibly strong, the reproductive and digestive health is some of the most vulnerable parts of this beautiful mammal.
A Recent Testimonial
Dear Loryhl & Associates, 7/6/07
Just a note to let you know the new mare purchased with heavy discharge & highly nervous with her estrus cycle is now much calmer and little discharge. She seems to feel much better. When she had her 1st cycle right after I bought her she was irritable, constantly hickering and running the fence. The running the fence has quit – she goes there to visit two other mares but a much calmer better feeling mare.
Thank you again for your help and products.
