Horses are known for being beautiful, strong, and powerful. Sometimes, too powerful for us to handle. Horses are high-energy animals, and often it can be safer for everyone involved (human and equine) to have a means of toning that energy down.
There is some crucial knowledge that all horse owners should have before making the decision to put their horse on a calming paste. Animals are instinctually wired with either a “fight or flight” mentality.
A common reason why horses will be seemingly unpredictable and sensitive is stomach ulcers. Ulcers in horses are similar in ulcers in people and can cause horses to be in huge amounts of discomfort and pain.
There are two calming pastes that stand out among others in the equestrian world. These include SynChill Calming Gel and MagnaGard Pre-Performance Paste. Both contain natural ingredients and will help reduce your horse’s stress levels.
Calming pastes serve to create a better working environment between you and your horse. When horses have any easier time focusing, it is easier for us to work with them. Make sure calming pastes are the right option for your horse and do your research on the ingredients of the one you select.
