FEI World Ranking: 4th
I have been using HoofMaster since July 2013 for hoof health for all of my horses. Originally I was looking for a product to improve the quality of hoof growth on my 5 year old Clydesdale mare. She was on 6-8 week hoof trimming cycle and of a healthy weight, and she still suffered from hoof splits/cracks and breaking. Since supplementing HoofMaster (actually in combination with Biotin 220) her hooves have grown in straighter and stronger from the coronet band with far less breakage in the hoof wall. At 8 months use, I am really pleased with the improvement in her feet, and look forward to seeing those last few imperfections grow out leaving behind lovely healthy hooves!
I own a Clydesdale mare who has terribly cracked and broken hooves. Even with regular hoof trimming and maintaining a healthy weight, her feet were not in good shape. It was recommended to me by a Shire herd owner that I supplement Biotin to my mare. I started with Biotin 220 in July 2013, in combination with HoofMaster, and have seen great results in her hoof structure. I would recommend Biotin 220 to anyone that needs to strengthen and improve their horses hoof walls and my mare loves the taste... When I ask if she wants her 'dessert', she comes running!!!
I have a gelding who has congestion and sometimes coughing issues. He tends to get a runny nose around dusty gravel roads and dusty hay. I have used Breathe NG for him on especially dusty days and you can hear an immediate improvement in his breathing. I think it is an excellent product that seems comparable to the "Advil Cold and Sinus" that I need on those stuffed up days. I have been pleased with the results... and my horse loves the taste!
I wanted to let you know that we had a great ride at Tevis; Smoke finished 26th. At age 18 and as a first time Tevis horse, I felt incredibly proud of his performance.
He has done really well on his vitamin mix you set up for him. I guess the only thing I’d ask is given his age is there anything else you would recommend. He has over 3400 competitive miles and has been doing endurance for 10 years. Energy booster maybe? (-: He’s only pulled once and that was just a bad horseshoe nail. I did do a round of Adequan as well and would likely do that again at the beginning of the season.
I am so happy with your product! I wish I could send you pictures here. Just from July to now there is a HUGE difference! My OTTB has hooves that look like hooves now. He used to have horrid feet! Constant abscesses and cracks and funny growth. Now he has healthy looking feet. I can not get out everyday to see him so he gets 2 scoops every second day..and I do not plan on changing that as he is looking great! Thanks for such a great product!! If you want pictures let me know. The bad pictures are just from July and the good ones were taken yesterday!
I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I started my mare on liquid Serenity on Friday and she is a completely different horse now. Noone can believe it! She isn't dead quiet but she isn't freaky or edgy anymore. I can't believe it! I have never been so impressed or happy with a product. She was basically unrideable and distracted before I had her on Serenity - now she is the mare I had hoped for. She doesn't break out in a sweat just from being under saddle and she is more relaxed about life.
I am SO happy with your product - I only wish I had thought to try it a month ago. My mare is gorgeous and now fun to ride...thank you SO much for helping her to shine!
My beautiful seven year old, Hanoverian, "For West", was injured in his paddock when his front shoe was clipped off by his hind right and ended up imbedded in his hind leg.† The quick action of our local vet Dr. Shawn Tucker and the capable O.V.C. staff of surgeon, with Dr. Natalie Cote, saved my boy!
The anti-inflammatory herbs in Mobility and the calming herbs of Serenity are part†of his rehab program.† I also feed your garlic and vitamin c to expedite the healing process.† I also have to add that your vitamin C to the tune of 8-10 grams a day helped keep his manure soft and guarded against colic.† The surgeon was concerned that his manure was too hard and I suggested the C mix and she agreed.† The next day he was passing soft manure.
Once again Ralph I have to thank you for the superior quality of your herbs.† They are life saving without a doubt.†† I also think Serenity settles them which helps guard against colic, tying up and further injury as stall rest and small jaunts of walking are enforced for the next month.
Wishing you further success!!
Oh please keep developing products, they're amazing!!
I've just put another colleague onto them who was also given a diagnosis of surgery for her pup. In my opinion, much like human medicine, we are too quick to medicate and take invasive approaches. We tell everyone who will listen (okay, and some who don't!) about these amazing products.
Oonagh is a Celtic name. Her CKC registered name is Oonagh of Emerald Isle.
Many, many thanks again
Thanks, Ralph, for making products that help our Arabian horses go the distance! We rely on Herb's for Horses UTP, Herring Oil and BCAA during competition season.

My horses has wheezed on and off for a couple years now. We have tried different methods, vets, and theories or whether it was allergies or something else. Typically he starts wheezing and coughing slowly and then stops slowly for a little time.
After TWO days on Breathe my horse has completely stopped wheezing. We are currently on day 5 and has not wheezed since day 2. I like to think this is more than a coincidence, and that we finally found a product that is working for him. I am so pleased that it is natural and safe to give over a long period of time. My horse also LOVES the taste and is simple and easy to give. He thinks its a treat for him! Not only will we stock up on Breathe, I will continue to look at other products that you have for other issues that might come up. I will now be a customer for life.
To stay that I am grateful is an understatement. It is so challenging to be a horse owner with an health issue that isn't known, and doesn't have a cure. I felt completely useless and helpless attempting to give him things that were not working. I am so thankful that you Herbs for Horses exists and that your products are natural and effective. I cannot begin to thank you enough and thank you for having what looks like a cure to a long, difficult journey.
Please do not stop!! Thank you for your products.
