Natural Hoof Soaks
There is nothing more fun than going for a mani-pedi with your friends. For your horse, a mani-pedi can actually be beneficial to their health, especially in the fall and springtime when the combination of wet weather and changing temperatures can see dangerous microbes thrive. At these times, horses may be at risk of picking up a nasty fungus or bacterial infection on their hooves which can cause deterioration of the hoof and pain when standing or walking. To help prevent these issues we recommend a microbe-busting natural hoof soak. Continue reading Natural Hoof Soaks

That is why I want Equi-Spa to be more than just a product line; I aim to offer advice and guidance on holistic and natural approaches to horse care. Beyond just aromatherapy, I believe in other methods of caring for these beautiful animals. Continue reading More Than A Product
