What Are The Benefits Of Clay For Horses?

Horses can end up with wounds and, subsequently, develop infections easily, which is why owners are falling in love with green clay, as it has been shown to be one of the most effective healing remedies. 


Clay is a naturally occurring rock found in the ground. Green clay, in particular, is formed thanks to the combination of iron oxides and decomposed substances, such as algae, mixed with the sediment. 


It typically contains a large variety of minerals, including magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc and copper. 


Since ancient times, it has been used for healing blemishes, cuts, burns, scrapes, bites and even achy muscles when applied topically. 


That is why it is a firm favourite among horse owners, as it can help heal their animals’ wounds by applying it liberally on to the area. 


Green clay is also used to tighten muscles, help tendons and joints recover, increase blood circulation, and absorb secretions from cuts. As a result, wounds can often look worse before they improve, as the toxins are being drawn out of the area. 


This is beneficial if they have endured an accident, have muscle soreness, or have taken part in arduous activity.


You could also use it as an internal treatment, as it is thought to boost the body’s minerals, remove toxins, prevent bacterial growth, tighten muscles, increase blood coagulation, and aid good digestion. 


It is worth noting that green clay for horses also has pain-relieving properties, so will help if you are worried about an infection, muscle aches, or sore cuts and scrapes.
