Use our proven herbal supplement to help your mare relax and maintain a healthy balanced hormonal and nervous system throughout her cycles.  Some mares, especially very young, or those in poor condition, may exhibit excessive behavioural and physical changes when they are in-season.  Early spring can make normal seasonal behaviour worse as can changes around the yard, such as the introduction of youngstock or new geldings.  Click here to see our Easy Mare video.

Our Gold liquid supplements are generally more quickly absorbed than the dry formulations but, depending on where in your mare's cycle you start giving the herbs, it may take up to six weeks to see any results.  For general support of nervousness and anxiety with no hormonal basis consider our Calm & Collected range instead. We do not recommend feeding these two supplements together as there would be duplication of many of the herbs. We also advise against giving additional valerian.

This supplement can also be used for competition stallions or 'riggy' geldings - contact the Helpline for more details.

My Dales mare had become increasingly "mareish". She was trying to kill me, and she did put me out of action for 3 weeks with a savage kick. I sadly decided to ask my instructor to try to sell her for me, but to be open about her behavioural problem. Sleepless nights followed and then as a last resort I tried Hilton Herbs Equilibrium Gold ( Easy Mare Gold) I had previously tried mare products from Equine America, Global herbs and NAF none of which had the slightest effect. After 3 weeks on Equilibrium ( Easy MareGold) I noticed a change for the better and after 6 weeks she had stopped all the nasty behaviour and was kind and affectionate. She was happy to be groomed EVERYWHERE and no longer lashed out when saddled. This was over a year ago and she has been lovely ever since. I keep her on Equilibrium Gold ( Easy Mare Gold) all the time and it seems a small price to pay for a happy mare. Nov 2011: It is getting on for 2 years since I wrote the above. My mare is still on a small amount of Equilibrium Gold every day and she is a joy to handle now. I am thinking of weaning her off it over the course of 2012 to see if the lovely behaviour continues. Watch this space - I will report again

I just wanted you to know how successful your EQUILIBRIUM GOLD ( Easy Mare Gold) had been for my four y.o. Connemara mare. She was often hyper and silly, especially when in season which spoilt her chances in the Show ring . A shame as she is very pretty. But she has turned over a new leaf after being on Equilibrium for some weeks and is behaving very well to date while being broken in. I am SO pleased! Thank you.

My 5 year old Trakehner mare always finds it hard during her seasons, and I found it was affecting her rideability and her balance. She was having irregular cycles that were very long. 8 weeks of EasyMare and she is doing so well. She is happy, calm and content - and I don't really notice when she is "on" anymore. I can only recommend Easy Mare for anybody whose mare’s seasons are a struggle - it really works.

I moved my 16hh stallion to a new large yard nearly four years ago which gave him much better grazing in a huge field which he's in on his own. Ordinarily, he's very well behaved and a perfect gentleman in every way - most people don't even realise he's a stallion until told - regardless of season. However, during the day the field is used by the mares on the yard and I had my concerns that I might be expecting a little too much from him behaviour-wise.He is still a gentleman but does become more fired up between April and October and I was concerned for his well-being and comfort. I spoke to my vet who told me there was nothing they could offer for a stallion in his situation. Knowing there are quite a few products out there for mares and already being a loyal customer of Hilton Herbs, I called the Helpline to ask for advice. They recommended (what was then) Equilibrium Gold ( Calm & Collected Gold ) I have used the product every Summer since that first year and wouldn't be without it. It doesn't change him in a hugely noticeable way, but just makes it a little more comfortable for him during the summer. And if you think this is in my head, I can tell you to the day when the season ends and to stop giving him Equilibrium because he goes from being quite forward-going to having to be pushed out on a hack. Whilst I can't say it will work for your stallion if you're in the same situation as me, I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND you try it as a non-invasive, non-chemical, inexpensive route before trying something else. The only downside? Having to give a stallion a product called "Easy Mare" which is a little odd.

Could not be happier. My mare is much more focused and happier. We are all very happy with the results of this product. She is a changed mare and so much calmer all around. Have recommended it to friends, one has started using it and is just as happy as I am.

I have a grumpy mare , who could be going along well then will start bucking, had horses for over 20 yrs, never had one like her. After giving her the Easy Mare Gold she is calmer more relaxed, a joy to ride! Dispensing is easy and I recommend this product to anyone with a moody, grumpy mare!

I used this on my colt last year as he went from being a very laid back well mannered foal to a coltish mischief. This product was effective within a few days and totally banished his coltish behaviour making him a lot easier to handle, no more nipping, jumping on me while picking his feet out, boxing or strutting his stuff in front of any mares. Can highly recommend it for colts. I agree with a previous reviewer about the name of the product not really encompassing it's potential for entires. Now going to try it on a very moody handy with her back legs mare.

The mare I use the Easy Mare with had been having other supplements for a while, she has gone on to your product without any fuss and there has not been any imbalance to her behaviour, although I would say she seems ‘cheeky’ at the moment, not naughty or nasty, but just jolly, I would like to think she is happy!

My Arab mare got difficult to handle when a very attractive gelding came to the stable. She was not able to catch from the field and started running whenever people approached the field and all the horses where difficult to catch because of her. Her mood just got worse. When riding all the signals we gave her she wouldn't react to. Even if she wanted to run, when you said it was ok, she just changed her mind and start to go backwards. She backed down a small ditch with me on her back, and we almost fell over backwards. This scared me so I stopped riding her! I was afraid she would injur herself or me! And it even got worse. When you approached her stable or field she ran after you with her ears back and her teeth out. She was really trying to get a piece of you!! So I started her on Easy Mare and persisted in feeding her both the dried and the liquid and put her in a different herd. This and the Easy mare saved my horse!! After 3 months she was herself again!! I kept her going on Easy Mare for another 6 months and have not had any problems with her moods, since we stopped using Easy Mare! Thank you so much for a great product and for turning my Arab princess back to a princess again and not the witch she became! Susanne (Norway)

Our Irish Sports Horse had become increasingly agitated when separated from the other horses at the yard and my daughters found her very challenging to ride. After a few weeks on Easy Mare Gold she is back to her normal self and once again a pleasure to school and hack out. I would whole-heartedly recommend this product.

I am really impressed with the Easy Mare Gold. It has made my very hormonal mare so much more comfortable. She was not nasty but gave me signs like turning around when having girth tightened and when mounting looking at my feet as if to say get off mum that hurts. She had also started doing little bucks when ridden which she had not done before. She was very hormonal in the first spring season particularly as she had weaned her foal last year this is what prompted me to buy a supplement. I read magazine review which recommended Easy Mare Gold as best for long term use. I am a very happy customer and delivery was well communicated and prompt too. Thank you.

One of the ingredients in this mix is a herb called Vitex agnus castus, it is the seed from a Mediterranean shrub that looks exactly like a small grey/black peppercorn.  This description would account for its other names - Chaste Tree Berry or Monk's Pepper. The herb acquired this name in medieval times when it was used in the monasteries to reduce libido in the young amorous novices!
