A herbal blend, ideal for horses and ponies prone to excitability or stress.

Stressed, anxious or hot horses may demonstrate dangerous behaviours like rearing, spooking and bolting. When diet, exercise, training, exposure and management have been addressed, horse owners may look at a calming supplement to help with difficult and flighty behaviour.

Dodson & Horrell’s Placid is a natural way to help calm horses who are susceptible to stress. Placid is a herbal blend combining herbs to help relax and relieve nervous horses.

Rather than simply suppressing the unwanted behaviour, Placid is a natural horse calmer that works holistically on the horse. The herbs used may not only help to reduce stress for the horse, they may also have a positive effect on the horse’s digestion, muscle tension and inflammation.

Placid is designed to help horses focus on what they are being asked by the rider or handler, and not an outside influence. Reducing the horse’s stress levels allows for faster, more effective training. While only recently introduced to Australia, Placid has been helping to settle UK horses since 1992.

Placid contains a combination of Chamomile, Lemon balm and Vervain, each renowned for their calming properties.

  • Chamomile is known as a relaxant which can help nervous conditions.
  • Lemon Balm contains chemicals that seem to have a quitening and calming effect. It also smells really refreshing.
  • Vervain is used widely as a relaxant – it was considered a holy plant to the ancient Greeks and Romans

Keep calm and ride on with Placid.
