A detailed guide to medicinal herbs for horses and how they can help in the treatment of a wide range of common ailments.

The book provides an A-Z of common ailments and conditions - from allergies to wounds - which can be effectively and safely treated with herbal medicine. The author explains how certain herbs can be used to complement and support conventional treatments.

To provide background information a Materia Medica lists the properties of fifty readily obtainable herbs, giving details on habitat, collection, actions and uses, enlivened by fascinating folklore and case histories. In addition the author discusses several non-herbal products, such as cider vinegar, honey, yoghurt and probiotics, whose healing properties can be harnessed for horses.

There are guidelines on how to make herbal preparations, such as teas and infusions, and on how to use herbs in compresses and poultices. Advice is given on how remedies are selected and dosages determined, bearing in mind that most herbs take time to bring about a healing reactions, because they work to strengthen the body as a whole rather than deal with symptoms in isolation.

The author shows how herbs can be put to good use in the day-to-day management of horses - to improve all-around health and vitality, reduce stress, overcome nervousness and excitability, strengthen hooves, add lustre to the coat and generally put a gleam in the horses's eye.

In the final part of the book, the author describes a range of alternative therapies which can be used alongside conventional and/or herbal medicine.
