Steady Mare (Dried Blend)
What's in Nature's Medicine Chest for Moody Mares?
Not many people know about horses' pre menstrual tension (PMT). If your mare is showing the typical signs of irritability and mood swings on a cyclic basis, then it is likely she is experiencing the symptoms and suffering from the nagging pains of pre menstrual tension. Did you know that herbs can help rebalance the hormone levels and regulate the menstrual cycle?
Herbs can also:
- act as a natural remedy for PMT
- re balance hormone levels
- soothe stomach cramps
- help prevent moody and irritable behaviour
- aid the digestive system
- release tension
A handful of herbs to stop your mare being a handful
A unique combination of herbs to aid the symptoms of premenstrual tension (PMT). Recent studies have proved that the herb Chaste Tree can re-balance the hormone levels and regulate the menstrual cycle. Chamomile and Vervain are relaxing herbs that will ease away stomach cramps that are making your horse oversensitive to the touch. Chaste Tree is also a useful herb for preparing your mares for covering as well as for relieving the tension. Bring tranquility to your mare today.
Contains: Chaste Tree, Chamomile, Vervain.
Just a note to say what a difference I've found in my mare since she had her first bucket of Steady Mare. When I first looked at the herbs I thought "no way will she eat that" because she doesn't like any other calmers I have tried, but she loves it. Her overall outline is softer & she is working a lot better. Normally she hates the clapping, music and loud speakers at shows but I have just got home from the NZ Grand National Champ Show at Rangiora where she went very well.

When my mare is in season she becomes more explosive to ride, she is also less willing to work 'over her back' which spoils her dressage performance. I have found that "Steady Mare" has kept her more consistent in her temperament, she is also more willing to work when in season. This means I can now compete when she is in season, knowing she will be doing her best for me!

No More "mareishness"! (from Tried & Tested Horse & Pony Magazine, March 2003)
When editor Joan Gilchrist asked me to trial Brookby Herbs' Steady Mare Herbal Blend, she did so with a wry smile. My mare is well known amongst friends as the old **** and can pull the most wicked faces at a 2 horse-lengths distance! Even her kind paddock mate ducks for cover when the MARE is back in the paddock.
I started giving her Steady Mare at a time when spring growth was beginning & spring hormone levels rising -changing nature would be a big prescription! I didn't notice any instant behavioural change, but then I didn't expect it. It wasn't until I looked back on some of the rides that I realised the mare's behaviour was definitely modified for the better.
Later in the month, I was practising in a quadrille when I ran out of the mix. This gave the mare a close-up opportunity for some real ugly face pulls. The difference was too much to believe.
In her case, it took a few weeks on Steady Mare before there were any changes, but when she stopped taking it the reversion was pretty rapid. She is now back on the blend and we are all the happier for it.
