Show Stalls:

Show stalls breed contamination, bacteria and viruses.  When other horses are around you risk the situation of your horse becoming ill.  So prevention can be of assistance.

  • Essential Oils: OnGuard and Oregano
  • Have each of these oils in a spray bottle – 5 drops to 24 oz. distilled water container
  • Spray first with Oregano to aid with contamination and bacterial
  • Then spray with OnGuard mixture to aid with viruses

Trailering:

If you are trailering multiple horses in your horse trailer you need to deal with the contamination, bacteria and viruses.

  • Essential Oils: OnGuard and Oregano
  • Have each of these oils in a spray bottle – 5 drops to 24 oz. distilled water container
  • Spray first with Oregano to aid with contamination and bacterial
  • Then spray with OnGuard mixture to aid with viruses

Water:

Do you have a horse that will not drink the water once they leave their environment?  Water in different locations can cause some horses not to drink.

  • Essential Oils: Lemon or Peppermint
  • Add 1 drop of Lemon or Peppermint to 1 gallon of water.  Lemon will change the composition by neutralizing any chlorine in the water, therefore, removing the chlorine taste from the water
  • Use this with metal buckets though as lemon will eat away at plastic containers
  • Peppermint will help with stomach upset also
  • * Key is to get your horse use to these before leaving for the show
