...and relax

Essential to your horse’s wellbeing, the nutrient magnesium plays several vital roles – one of which is the regulation of nervous tension.

If your horse shows some of these signs of nervous tension, they could be suffering from low magnesium levels:

  • Excitability
  • Lack of Confidence
  • Spooky
  • Nervous or Tense
  • Highly Strung
  • Easily Distracted
  • Muscle tension – your horse may appear “tight”

Horses can become low in magnesium for a variety of reasons, it can be caused by a deficiency in the grazing or forage or your horse’s individual metabolism, magnesium levels can also be depleted by regular travel or competition.

We’ve taken a look at 3 ranges of Magnesium based calmers, all designed to replenish your horse’s magnesium levels and aid calmness, focus and relaxation.

NAF

The NAF Magic Range

The NAF Magic Range features magnesium calmers with a difference. It's a five star formula that contains a unique combination of herbs and nutrients known to help relax muscle tissue and support concentration.

This blend of ingredients helps horses that are excitable, suffer from low confidence or muscle tension, to tackle all that is asked of the horse calmly and confidently.

Also available as a fast acting calmer, NAF Instant Magic syringes are designed for use in potentially stressful situations such as for competitions, clipping, travelling or farrier and dentist visits.

NAF are pleased to confirm that the magnesium used in Magic does not contravene FEI competition rules and is safe for use in all horses.
