About the event

Herbalism for Horse and Rider

Discover the principles of herbalism, specifically designed for horses and their riders. In this session, you will be introduced to herbs that can support the health of the horse and human companions.  We will address herbal solutions for both topical and internal use. Learn how to incorporate herbs as supplements to support common horse health issues, like managing pain, treating bruises, reducing inflammation, assisting with parasites; and rider issues like sore muscles, nervousness or anxiety, and inflammation. This workshop provides an opportunity to explore and sample various herbs and herbal blends and preparations, equipping you with practical knowledge to apply in your daily routine to support you and your horse's well-being.  Enhance your holistic wellness practice and foster a deeper connection with your horse through the power of herbs.
