Your Guide to Natural Horse Nutrition

Learn how natural horse nutrition can help keep your horse healthy and even help solve their health problems. If your horse has health issues, it is possible that their nutrition is lacking quality nutrients and/or they may not be able to absorb and utilize the nutrients properly. Just like people, your horse's body may have become overloaded with toxins - even a build up of medications can compromise their immune system.

Natural horse nutrition simply means providing your horse with the most natural and balanced diet as possible. Many people do not realize how whole grains, vitamins, minerals, herbs, and natural supplements like blue-green algae/spirulina, garlic, bee pollen, and probiotics can make a world of difference in the health of your horse. Natural horse nutrition can also help natural remedies and therapies such as homeopathy, flower essences, aromatherapy, massage, reiki, chiropractic work, acupressure, and acupuncture be more effective on your horse. Of course, the key to nutrition is muscle testing. This way you can find out what is ideal for your horse. Feeding the wrong food items can result in health problems and behavioral issues.
