People with sandy soil need to be more proactive, but it wouldn't hurt anyone to make it part of their horses' health regimen. I do have sand, so have been using it religiously for years.
I buy the Equate brand psyllium at Walmart. It runs about $8.00 for a huge container and lasts me a month. I have 3 horses and they get it once a week. If you haven't given it before, it's best to start them on a 7 day program then switch them off to once a week.
