Welcome to EquiNatural
"Diseases don't just happen. There is always a cause. You can't expect to create vibrant, optimal health by masking symptoms. You must identify and address the root cause."

Why the 'Natural' in EquiNatural? Simple. An organism, whether horse or human, will naturally try to fight anything it regards as foreign or toxic, otherwise the body's cells become damaged which leads to chronic inflammation. However, if the organism is overburdened with toxicity, its immunity army and natural detox system will struggle to do their job. And so begins dis-ease, meaning that the body is 'ill at ease', making getting better much harder.
Back in 2006, when my herd of horses collectively became very sick due to their toxic environment, I didn't know this. Neither did my vet, so it was do or die - I had to figure it out myself. Getting them fully better took me around 2-years, as I began to learn how - and why - their health had become so compromised.
I studied everything I could find on equine and human health, and immersed myself in every appropriate nutrition model out there. To bring my horses back to wellness became my obsession - the more I learned, the more it became very clear to me how crucial it was to optimise their diet and nutrition levels with species-appropriate food alongside uncontaminated, bioactive phytonutrients, in order to clean-up their gut health, rebalance their hormones, and above all, reset their natural detox function.
EquiNatural evolved from that educational journey, and led me towards the Institute of Functional Medicine, which understands that the body is a complex, dynamic, adaptive system; in order to optimise its health we need to nutrify with intelligent, natural substances that know what to do in the body, that the body’s already familiar with, and repair in ways that conventional medicine can’t. It's about helping your horse naturally regulate its body to support its own innate healing systems, and not about a single drug with a single action with a single outcome for a single disease.
We now have many vets, equine practitioners, training establishments and charities worldwide using our services for horses across all disciplines. With EquiNatural you can be assured that stringent organic practices ensure the highest quality, contaminant-free, nutritionally-regenerative product, in order to harness the optimum health benefits for our horses.
