The Perfect Winter Supplement for Horses

As we head into the depths of winter, your horse’s health faces a number of extra challenges. BSC-SeaBuckthorn is a unique, natural supplement that supports them from head to hoof.

Winter Challenges

Just like us, horses can be more susceptible to illness in winter. Additionally, they must adapt to routine changes - particularly increased stabling - that may impact their health and well-being.

Reduced grazing is the most significant risk factor for gastric ulcers. Despite our best management, it is almost impossible to ensure that stabled horses trickle feed as they would in the field. Time without food means that gastric acid is not effectively neutralised and the risk of ulcers is greater.

Stabling increases exposure to allergens from bedding and dried or processed feeds. These present additional challenges for immunity, particularly respiratory health, and some horses may suffer from slight allergies that are hard to pinpoint.

The hindgut exists in a delicate equilibrium that is easily disrupted at this time of year. Not only is it essential for your horse’s nutrition, but the hindgut biome is also known to be a crucial component of immune health.

For many horses, stress can add further complications. The physiological consequences of chronic stress include reduced appetite, increased inflammation and oxidation, hindgut disruption and suppressed immunity.

BSC-SeaBuckthorn - Complete Support Supplement

SeaBuckthorn is a natural plant extract that has long been used in traditional medicine. Its highly effective blend of anti-oxidant, prebiotic and omega compounds work throughout the body to support immunity and good health.

SeaBuckthorn nourishes the entire gastrointestinal tract, helping to support healing and natural defence against acid and irritation. It has been shown to support gastric health in horses subjected to stabling and food deprivation. A highly effective prebiotic, SeaBuckthorn also helps the hindgut ‘good bacteria’ to thrive.

With over 190 active nutrients, including Omega-7 and anti-oxidant flavonoids, carotenoids and phytosterols, Seabuckthorn is the ultimate super-food offering a far more diverse and valuable nutrient profile than formulated supplements.

BSC-SeaBuckthorn is a highly palatable liquid supplement. We work with The British SeaBuckthorn Company (BSC) in order to ensure a fresh and traceable product.

From £65 per 5Ltr bottle (56 days maintenance for a 500-600 Kg horse).
