Question Supplement for stress

Ok I need some input on a supplement for stress,i have a horse who was very sick with lymes fall 2010 to middle of december. So I need some kind of supplement to help with the stress this spring when we start ridding again. He relapsed this fall after he was better and we started ridding again,iam worried he will get sick if he's stressed at all so I need a good supplement for that reason.

try some Bach flower remedies, he could probably benefit from rescue remedy, which is a mixture of 5 of the original flower remedies and is very good at relieving stress and anxiety. Its flowers so you can't overdose and it is completely natural and wont affect anything else the horse is on. They can be administered easily through putting drops in your horses water and on treats or in feed and you should see a difference :)

not sure if this works for all horses but when I used to go to big shows my pony would get really stressed so we would put her on Uniprim for a few days and she would calm right down and not be so worried abouteverything that she came into contact with. Its just an orange powder that you scoop it up and put it into their grain in the morning or at night. I saw a difference right away with her!

The horse. Here is nobility without conceit, friendship without envy, beauty without vanity. A willing servant, yet never a slave.

Be sure to start your riding back slowly. Start with hand walking, then light lunging, then short rides just at the walk, etc. Take your time so you don't stress him out.

Here's a few supplements I would recommend.
