I was just amazed at how quickly The Herbal Calmer took effect. My horse is a 17hh 3-year-old warmblood and he's now so relaxed and happy. It's brilliant.

I found the 
Herbal Calmer brilliant. I started 3 of our yearlings on the Herbal Calmer with Valerian first then changed to the Valerian Free Calmer Both were excellent and I'd highly recommend both Brookby Herb calmers to all stud owners. I was a bit unsure about using herbs to start with but am now totally convinced.

Well done! Now I can seek advice 24 hours a day. Also, I have to compliment you on your fantastic products. I used the calming herbs on a highly-strung horse. She was hard to catch, feed, groom and ride. After feeding her with the herbs daily, I could do anything with her! When this mare was about to be flown to England, I fed her some calming herbs and she went into the float like a lamb. I was really pleased. Well done Brookby Herbs, keep up the fantastic products.

Hi, Just wanted to say I have been buying lots of your products which I love and they are the only products I use. I went from buying a lovely TB who completely lost the plot in his first ODE, where it was a nightmare. Since I purchased your Herbal Calmer and started using that, the last couple of times we have been out, he has been a dream. I have even had others comment on "What a different horse". Once again wonderful product, keep up the good work. 
Regards, Lisa Kitto 

I have been using your Herbal Calmer with Valerian and just love it. I had an accident which put me off riding for 4 months. I started her on the Calmer two weeks before I started riding her and was able to just hop on her back and virtually carry on from where I left off. She is a different horse. Thank you.

Explosive mare calms down.
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!

Steady Mare

Horse with allergies much happier.
My mare develops a strong head flick in the spring and summer. Giving her this every day cuts her symptoms down considerably.
