The Benefits of Feeding Your Horse Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
1. Improve digestion and balance PH levels in your horse
Apple Cider Vinegar works to acidify the horse’s stomach for better digestion, cleansing the digestic tract. It can also aid in the absorption of minerals and helps balance the acid/alkaline ratio which is essential for good health. ACV can work as a natural anti-biotic, and can discourage parasites and water-borne diseases. Apple Cider Vinegar also contains anti-oxidants, which are vital to protect the horse’s body from free radicals which can cause a lot of damage.
2. Ease Arthritis symptoms & help with joint movement and muscle function
Both horses and humans have benefited from ACV to help control the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. It can help break down acid crystals, which can build up in joints and cause your horse tissue stiffness and soreness.
3. Natural Insect Control
By feeding your horse or pony ACV daily in their feed, it causes higher levels of thiamine (vitamin B) to be excreted through their skin, which discourages biting insects such as flies and mosquitos.
You can also make your own fly repellant by mixing together 2 cups ACV, 1 cup water, 1 cup bath oil and 2 teaspoons of citronella. Simply mix well and spray over the horse’s coat for a natural fly repellent!\
4. Mane and Tail Conditioner
Condition your horse’s mane and tail naturally by adding 1 cup of ACV to a bucket of water for the final rinse after washing your horse’s tail. Use a spray bottle for the mane with the same quantities of water and ACV. This will leave your horse’s mane and tail incredibly soft and smooth and will remove any soap residue.
