Horse health / Care

As a late bloomer to horses, I struggled to find all of the information I needed to ensure that I was looking after my horse correctly. Advice being thrown at me from all different angles, I decided that I needed to find a ‘single point of truth’ to start my understanding of horse health.

Following a history of Secondary Science Teaching and educational roles, my other past work history has been in the Information Services, Pharmaceutical, Science and/or Veterinary industry. Part time, I was learning about horses and I finally graduated from Charles Sturt university with distinction in Equine Science in 2011, and since this time have focused more on my passion for animal health. I also studied some remedial therapies, and have conducted remedial body work and biomechanics evaluations on horses since about 2015.

Under the name of Cazedarnes Equestrian, I have a YouTube channel devoted completely to supplying factual horse health information for owners. (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC2tq_xNnzcvRdy4K4D2ixw), in areas of general health, basic nutrition and biomechanics. I believe there is a lack of basic and correct health information for horse owners, to enable them to make their own good decisions regarding their horses health.

Currently I am lucky enough to be able to be working with HEMP PET doing product development consulting for their equine products. I also provide research, nutrition, and regulatory affairs consulting services to the animal health industry. I am in fact one of those lucky people who get to work every day in my area of passion.

Hemp, Hype and Horses

Get the truth about how hemp can (and can’t) assist your horse.

There are many novel hemp-based products and feeds currently on the market, but how do you sift through the marketing to work out which hemp products are worth adding into your horses feed routine, and which are either not, harmful, or could even be prohibited. Hemp is highly palatable, and can be fed as a meal, oil, or even as husks and blended with other products. It really is a nutrition powerhouse and can provide a great source of vitamins and minerals. It is also a wonderful source of protein for horses, with an amino acid profile that provides all essential amino acids. Hemp is also a source of essential fatty acids, but as herbivores, it is not the ‘perfect’ ratio that is sometimes advertised.

What are some of the conditions that using hemp may assist with? What is the difference between hemp seed oil and a CBD product, and do these products contain THC? Does CBD have a place in horses’ health/treatment? Hemp products for horses are set to grow rapidly both inside and outside of the supplement market, so it’s a great idea to understand where it fits

How Could, Does, or even Doesn’t, Hemp Fit into my Horses Diet

Hemp is a great nutritional source for horses. It is a high quality source of protein, with an amino acid profile that provides all essential amino acids. It also contains a myriad of vitamins and minerals, and is great source of essential fatty acids. What is the difference between hemp oil/hemp seed oil and CBD oil?

Traditionally people have assumed the benefit of adding hemp to a horses diet is as a ‘calmer’. It may be surprising to learn that any calming effect could be coming from a balanced nutrition and/or improved gut health with respect to hemp seed products.

So what is CBD, and when may be the right situation to use this? CBD can give great benefits around anxiety and pain relief in horses, so what/how is the best way to try this for your horse.

How do you include hemp in your horses diet for the RIGHT reasons, and what type of hemp product is likely to benefit your horse. Don’t forget the important question of when is hemp NOT a good addition to their diet!

As with any supplement/feed ‘blind’ additions are a very hit and miss approach – not to mention expensive.
