Epson salts work really well too! They are a muscle relaxant as well as a laxative so only very small amounts are used.
My endurance trainer feeds a small amount (about a teaspoon or 2) with their normal feed mix. She trains arabs who can be really excited at times. She swears that if she didn't feed them epson salts then some would be uncontrollable! :)
Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.
