After trying many other products without result, I tested one of my horses on the Mud Defender. It hurt when he jumped because of scabs in the pasterns; after 15 days of using the supplement and local lotion, and for the last 3 months all the scabs have disappeared. In the Winter although he was out in the field the scabs have not returned! I am very happy with this product.

Tried on my horse who goes out to the fields every day: scabs disappeared and 3 months after they have not returned.

- It works!, 08/06/2020

Thanks to having used the Mud Defender supplement throughout the wettest winter I have ever seen, and on record, my horse’s skin has been manageable and enabled me to turn him out and maintain healthy skin. Great Product Thank you Hilton Herbs.
