We agree, there are a LOT of things to hate about single use plastic bags, but to fear? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Of course, horses are essentially prey animals. Eons of genetic hard-wiring tell your horse to RUN AWAY. (Did you just hear that old Monty Python skit in your head? RUN AWAY...RUN AWAY...)
While they can stand their ground and fight to the end, they are built to flee. This DNA still affects their daily lives even in the 21st century. To your horse, a car blaring it's horn, the UPS truck backing up or fireworks, all scream RUN! FLEE! GET OUTTA HERE!
Just as we have triggers that send us into panic attacks, like public speaking, snakes, heights, spiders or mice (I've tried to explain to my husband why mice terrify so many of us and he just looks at me. He is not buying my fear of the Black Plague story at all, so can our horses. There may be no rhyme or reason to what triggers panic for man or horse, the best we can do it deal with it in a safe, loving way.
RELAX Essential Oils use our custom blend of aromatherapy oils in an all natural base to gently, yet effectively relax your horse, to take the edge off.
When you have over 1000 pounds of scared, stressed animal with hooves flailing around, you want something to work FAST. While not intended to be a tranquilizer or horse xanax, RELAX does effectively take it down a notch.
For maximum benefits, apply generously, rolling on in a circular motion, inside your horse's ears or throat. Alternate application: roll onto your hands and pet your horse. If possible, apply prior to the stress trigger, or as soon as possible after. Reapply frequently, as needed for your horse's relaxation.
