Formulated to maintain & support:
Cush X for horses, ponies and donkeys is formulated to maintain and support:
Cush X is a dry supplement containing herbs such as vitex agnus castus and milk thistle seed. Its liquid equivalent, Cush X Gold, is often used first due to its quicker initial absorption (we do not suggest to give both together).
The feedback we get on this supplement from our UK , European and US customers is excellent, especially from those owners whose older horses and ponies struggle to shed their coats in Spring/Summer.
Vitex Agnus Castus seed
Goats Rue herb
Milk Thistle seed
Golden Rod herb

Hilary Self, our Medical Herbalist/Co-Director, was required to undertake clinical studies as part of her BSc Degree Course in Herbal Medicine. Hilary took the opportunity to trial a single herb, Vitex Agnus Castus, commonly known as Chaste Tree Berry or Monks Pepper Seed, on a group of fifty elderly horses and ponies. In response to the findings of this trial and the in depth knowledge she gained, she then formulated the Cush X range.
Within a month, my Arabian was more alert and energetic showing no signs of depression. Kept him on the recommended amount for several months and now have reduced his supplement quite a bit. He shedded out nicely, has a great disposition and is happy!

I bought this supplement to give my 24-year-old Arabian gelding. He has not shed out properly for the past two years along with other issues. I have only been using this stuff for a few weeks, but he has already started shedding out like he should be. It has an odd smell, but he seems to eat it just fine.

I purchased this product for our pony and our blind horses all of whom are slow to shed. It has made such a difference; I have already recommended it to a friend. When I saw the texture and smelled the product, I wasn't sure they would eat it, but all three did without any problem.

Stable started to be less wet after 10 days on it. Shedding has picked up. Seems to be helping overall. He actually eats it, even though he is VERY picky.

I've only been feeding this for a month and so far, so good! It took a few days for my picky 24yo mare to accept this change and after week+ of getting the full amount, the improvements are obvious: she is much more animated.

My 24-year-old Paso Fino, was lethargic, grew very long hair and hoofs, and could barely walk. I considered putting him down, not because I didn't love him but because he was so unhappy. I started adding one scoop of Cush X daily to his feed. Within a few weeks he began moving with grace, he shed his long hair, and he started enjoying life again. He now has the spirit of a young boy and is very happy. Thank you for saving my sweet boy!

I bought this for my pony , what a difference it has made , just ordering the second amount, its fanstastic

CushX...amazing. What a difference. He is looking good and canters to come for his evening feed. In the morning, the pair of them are in position before I'm up, waiting for their breakfast. your products have made a huge difference in him. Even the French farmer who delivers the hay mentioned how well he looked! For that from a hardened French farmer, just shows how good he looks!

I'm a young woman who's childhood pony is getting close to 30 now, she's suffered with seasonal skin irritation and has been “ prone to laminitis” on and off throughout her life. A few years ago we were told she needed adrenal support , we tried what the vet recommended, which was costly but she showed slight improvement. 2 winters ago we almost lost her so I made it my mission to find something better and oh my word I don't need to look any more! Cush x has improved both our lives so much and she looks 10 years younger! Her overall condition, soundness (and skin irritation ) has improved. She's so much happier in her face and she cantered around the paddock not wanting to come in yesterday, it's been truly wonderful. We started with the liquid Cush X but it made her fussy and splitting a very small quantity proved difficult (11.2hh) so we swapped to the dried herb Cush X and haven't looked back. She eats it mixed in with her feed no fuss. I recommend it and after 3-4 weeks you'll see a huge improvement. Thank you so much, I'm glad we found you!

My 32 year old pony has been having Cush X for a couple of months now and not only does he seem to be doing very well on it, but I am saving money. My pony is now back in work and will be competing this year, I am very pleased with Cush x and so is my pony.

Just like to say what a wonderful product Cush X is. It was not nice to see my mare being so miserable. She has been on Cush X for a few month's now, and seems to be back to her old self. Relief all around ! -

I just want to say how impressed I am by your product range, Cush X. I have been giving it to my Connemara mare and not only is she full of life and back to her old cheeky self, but her hoof condition has also improved! So, a big thank you from us - I would certainly recommend that people give this product a go.

My mare, is doing very well on the CushX Gold ! She has never been so relaxed and comfortable in her behaviour as she is now. I even start riding her again ( after 1 year of only being out in the field) and must honestly say that it all feels very powerfull...even after such a long break, she never felt better under the saddle as she's doing now! Her coat was ok again this summer, starting now having a wintercoat, but all horses do right now I guess :-)

I thought it was about time I let everyone know how brilliant Cush-X (Vitex Plus) has been for my Arab/Welsh mare, Chloe. It has not been an easy ride (fertilised fields and sharing with sheep) but now at 24, I have managed for the last 2 years (since I moved fields) without any problems. She lives out all year round with access to a field shelter and a purely fibre diet, with Cush-X and Hoof and Health added. Her immune system is in full working order. She has her teeth checked every 6 months. Her feet are in amazing condition (her excellent farrier plays a big part) and she is 100% sound. She drinks more than an average horse and has a longer thicker coat most of the time, but it does completely shed in the spring and again in the autumn. She has a summer coat for about 2 months. I have been feeding Cush-X for about 6 years and will continue to do so for the rest of her life. There is no doubt that it has played a vital part in her rehabilitation and continuing stabilised condition. In fact this year has been her best yet! Thank you so much Hilary and Hiltons. Chloe is the first foal I bred and was a wonderful riding horse taking me to international level in endurance. In recent years she has been a fabulous nanny to many youngsters and a wonderful companion. I am very grateful she is still happy and enjoying her retirement. Definitely top marks and 5* for Cush-X and Hoof & Health.
