Celebrating National Horse Protection Day March 1, APPA offers up necessities to celebrate hooved companions

With ‘companionship’ cited as the leading benefit of horse ownership (according to APPA’s latest survey), APPA is pleased to celebrate National Horse Protection Day on March 1. Raising awareness on ownership, adoptions and proper care, below are a few necessities, manufactured by APPA members, to celebrate hooved companions everywhere.

Treat horses with natural, delicious and healthy Herball treats by Hilton Herbs. The tasty green nugget bites are made from alfalfa, wheat flour and linseed mixed with generous helpings of ingredients including oregano, mint and rosemary without added sugar.

Keep horses in and intruders out with safe ElectroBraid Fences by Woodstream Corporation. Fences are highly visible, strong, durable and resilient.

Care for your companion’s coat with Glisten & Gleam by Wholistic Pet Organics, made with organic stabilized flaxseed and key vitamins and minerals in a natural whole-food form to keep coats shining.

Keep irritating flies away with gentle, effective and pesticide-free Aloe Herbal Horse Spray by Espree. With coat conditioners and sunscreen created to aid in the control of insect-related skin problems, the all-natural spray is safe for use in barn and stall areas and features cedar wood, citronella and eucalyptus oils.

With the FURminator® Equine Tool, there’s an easy way to remove a horse’s “winter coat” and loose hair faster than any brush, rake or comb. Great for daily grooming, the tool helps reduce allergens while stimulating circulation and hair growth and the tool’s edge gently removes loose hair without irritating delicate skin.
