HERB POWER is formulated to maintain and support:
- horses of all ages with its carefully formulated selection of the very best Mother Nature has to offer!
- those with restricted access to pasture or during wintertime
- horses on pasture with little variety of herbage
- young horses during growth periods
Herb Power is a dry supplement containing herbs such as nettle, cleaver and kelp, all carefully chosen for their high vitamin and mineral content. Nature provides a plentiful array of seasonal plants which many horses and ponies naturally graze such as springtime cleavers and autumn hawthorn berries. Due to the way in which more horses are kept now access to such plants is limited, so our Herb Power is the natural choice to get your horse back to nature.
Some customers like to switch between Herb Power and our Hoof & Health supplement to give optimum coverage throughout the year. Also consider our Himalayan Salt Licks and, of course, our Herballs treats.

Nettle (Urtica dioica)
Nettles have been used for centuries as a cheap and wholesome supplement, they are packed with vitamin C, iron, protein, and healthy dietary fibre. They make a great spring tonic, and can be used as a wash for rinsing horses' manes and tails. When fed to horses they encourage lovely ‘dappling' on their coats.
Young tender nettle leaves can also be used to make a cheap and very tasty soup. Don't worry, as they lose their sting when you cook them! Remember to wear gloves when collecting the nettles to protect your hands, and use only the young tender leaves. Why not try making some soup, its great fun, the nettles are free and fantastically healthy.
The following website has a simple recipe for Nettle soup and lots of other information on collecting herbs to eat.
