Can CBD help horses with anxiety?
Thursday, December 16, 2021
The answer is yes! However, while it lessens anxiety it does not calm a horse down. This is a mixed message and at first the team at H & J CBD Equine Supplements which includes three PhD’s, were pleasantly surprised at the results they were seeing.
The first testimonial came in from a hunter jumper barn that had a couple of horses that were somewhat untrainable and nervous going over the bigger jumps. After three days taking the H & J CBD discs, the horses started to focus and relax. After 60 days, the CBD was no longer needed, and the horses went on to the show pen.
The second testimonial was from a stud farm in Texas. Breeding season can be hard on the stallions. Jaf at the Ranch Equine started giving his older stud CBD and breeding season got a whole lot easier for both the stud and the staff.
The third testimonial was from a show barn in Oklahoma that brought in two-year-old horses from the pasture to get broke. One of the mares started weaving and pacing her stall so much she was in a dead sweat most of the day. After giving the mare a CBD disc, within an hour she settled in her stall and calmed down. The trainer told Jeri the co-owner of H & J CBD Equine Supplements that even though she was calm in her stall her training went better than expected and the mare exceeded all their expectations.
Finally, a barrel racer who has having issues with her horse running in indoor arenas tried the CBD discs by giving her gelding one the day before and the morning of the rodeo. She was nervous that her horse may be to calm to have a fast run. Well, was she wrong! Not only did she get her horse into the indoor arena she won the race.
