Do you have an older horse or pony that is starting to struggle with mobility?
White Willow Bark (Salix Alba) powder may be just what you need! This magic herb has been getting amazing feedback from customers and hoof trimmers alike.
White Willow Bark powder helps support joints and the musculoskeletal system in horses and ponies with painful issues. It contains Salicylic Acid, which helps reduce inflammation and relieves pain. Due to their chemical similarity, one could assume that White Willow Bark’s efficacy is the same as that of aspirin. Unlike aspirin, White Willow Bark has no blood-thinning effects and is not detrimental to the stomach lining. It can therefore also be given to horses and dogs. So if your horse is starting to show signs of arthritis, this could be a great natural remedy.
Here are some of the benefits our customers have reported:
This is safe for long-term use.
According to FEI regulations, White Willow bark should be discontinued well in advance before a competition.

"So this is Axel, photos taken 4 weeks apart. After I lost my old SB mare I decided to look for a horse I could ‘connect’ with and work through Warwick Schiller’s relationship path. Axel and I clicked straight away, though it was clear from the start he was dealing with some ‘stuff’ emotionally. I have no agenda and no plans to ‘get out there’ with this horse, so after his big move to his new home we just hung out and allowed him to ‘let down’ - this culminated in a range of physical issues, from mud fever to dramatic weight loss and then .... his hair fell out. The photos show day one. By day three he was bald (and I was a blubbering mess!) This was right on Xmas/New Year. We brought him in and I slathered him daily in Hoof and Hair Moisturiser - one week later we had hair! The second photo is taken 4 weeks later - He’s not had another issue since. I regularly use it on his hooves, and he now loves to have it rubbed in when he’s groomed. He wasn’t abused or anything just no longer needed for racing or eventing. It’s been so interesting seeing him relax and change, he’s really adapting well to his life as a pleasure horse and for me it’s been an awakening, really getting to know a horse after 40 plus years of riding. I love your products, really great value and super quality. I also use them on my mini - the detangler is the only thing that rescues his dreadlocked mane."
