Confidence EQ 5ml Sachets (Equine)
The unique approach to reducing equine stress! The equine appeasing pheromone in a single-packet gel.
What is ConfidenceEQ?
The equine appeasing pheromone is released by the mare shortly after giving birth, this pheromone provides the foal with reassurance helping it feel safe and secure when encountering new situations/ unknown environments. In adult horses, the presence of this pheromone is a signal that the environment is safe. ConfidenceEQ® is a synthetic copy of the equine appeasing pheromone. Since equine appeasing pheromone was identified, numerous studies have been conducted confirming its efficacy in controlling stress in commonly encountered situations in horses of all ages including, loading, travelling, environmental changes, training, events, social situations (weaning, farrier visits vet visits) Apply the single-packet gel to the nostrils of your horse and you'll see the science in action. You may even notice a flexing of the top lip called the Flehman's Response. This natural behaviour is how horses receive and interpret pheromones. ConfidenceEQ works in 30 minutes and the effect will last for 2.5hr after application.
How Does ConfidenceEQ Work?
- Your horse takes in pheromones through special nerve bundles in their nose.
- These signals are immediately sent to the brain where they are interpreted
- Your horse instinctually understands the biological signals, increasing it's focus and ability to learn.
