EquiMud – is a strong and powerful mud dressing for horses to treat skeletal and soft tissue injuries as well as the following:
● Routine preventative use after work and Reducing swelling in soft tissue injuries to the lower leg
● Hair loss from rubbing or injury. EquiMud naturally accelerates hair regrowth. For best results EquiMud should be applied and covered with a warm damp towel secured by a rug or bandages. This may not always be possible, depending on the area requiring treatment. The mud will still accelerate hair regrowth if left uncovered but it will take a little longer.
● Mud fever – apply a liberal (1-2 cm) covering of EquiMud to the affected area and leave uncovered overnight, wash off in the morning and dry legs thoroughly. Re-apply daily.
● Cracked heels – similar application to Mud Fever
● Sweet itch – similar application to Mud Fever
● Thrush – wash the area thoroughly and pack the hoof capsule with the mud, cover with a plastic bag and bandage the hoof to secure. Wash off in the morning and reapply daily.
● Rain scald – Apply a 1-2 cm covering of mud to the affected area. Cover the mud with a damp towel soaked in warm water (wrung out to remove excess water). Rug the horse over the towel and leave overnight. Wash off and reapply daily.
Do not use EquiMud on open wounds or areas of skin that are bleeding, instead using VetGold Cream (see VetGold Cream or Spray product page).
● EquiMud contains Dead Sea mud, which is used by humans and now horses, for treating sore muscles as well as joints, soft tissue aches and pains.
● Dead Sea mud is rich in minerals with a high concentration of magnesium (MgCl 34.43%). This is crucial for horses, who often suffer from magnesium deficiency. The natural occurring magnesium found in Dead Sea mud and salt is quickly absorbed by the horse, providing much needed ingredients for daily functions.
● Dead Sea mud, besides being one of the best cleansers and exfoliates dead skin cells, provides nourishment needed by skin/muscle cells to properly and naturally regenerate and maintain the natural elasticity and vitality of the cells.
● Dead Sea mud is known for its high cooling and soothing abilities.
● Dead Sea Mud will not dry the skin by absorbing its moisture, will not clog the hair follicles and will not weaken the coat’s roots.
● EquiMud also contains lavender oil, which is capable of soothing irritations and reducing inflammation.
EquiMud’s unique and powerful combination of 24 Dead Sea Minerals and All Natural Plant Extracts include the following:
1. False yellow head, woody flea-bane, sticky flea-bane – used for thousands of years to treat inflammation of the joints, as well as fungal and bacterial inflammations.
2. Tree Wormwood – relieves pain and swelling.
3. Cucumber – provides relief from pain and itching. Is very soothing and calming.
4. Avocado Oil – Rich in vitamins, it nourishes the skin while reducing muscle contraction and pain. Also softens and moisturizes the skin.
5. Dead Sea Salts – like mud, rich in minerals with high concentration of natural magnesium which the horse absorbs via its skin. It is crucial for the horse’s health, as magnesium deficiency affects performance, focus and behavior.
6. Linseed oil – Rich with Omega 3, it treats arthritis and skin inflammation, swelling and pain. Also serves to soften and moisturize the skin.

MADDY a 20 year old Clydesdale mare, dressage, hacking, owned by M.Thomas She suffers from Sweet Itch to her pasterns and part of her fetlocks. We applied the VetGold cream for 9 days and the irritation ceased. The owner was very happy because she had tried many other products previously that had failed to relieve Maddy’s stamping and therefore the itching. My opinion is that Maddy’s condition is not classic Sweet Itch but a type of fungal infection – either way the Vet Gold cream solved the problem.
DOM 5 year old Cob gelding, hunting and general riding, owned by S.Kempster Dom bites his lower forelegs to ease the itching caused by mites. We coated the area with EquiMud for 3 nights and washed it off in the morning. No wraps were applied. After ceasing treatment with the mud, we applied Vet Gold cream for 7 days. Itching / biting ceased and has not resumed.
LIV a 16 year old Dutch Warmblood gelding, Grand Prix dressage, owned by B.Tilton. Liv suffers from filled and sensitive legs after work. We applied the EquiMud using the routine application method with bandages etc overnight. The legs were cool and unfilled in the morning. The owner was very pleased with the results and also impressed at the ease of removal compared to Ice Tight.
AMMO a 10 year old German Warmblood gelding, Dressage, owned by B.Tilton. Ammo has a hoof problem that started with his previous owner and that was so severe removal of some of the infected tissue had to be carried out by the vets under anesthetic. Although the vets removed some of the infected tissue during his surgery a year ago some still remains. The clefs of the hooves felt slimy and jelly-like and the smell was overpowering, similar to Thrush but far more pungent. The owner has tried many treatments from her vet and farrier, but nothing has worked. I was unsure whether the EquiMud or the VetGold was the best solution, so we treated the front hooves with EquiMud and the back hooves with Vet Gold cream, tubbing then applying the products and padding and wrapping as for a hoof poultice. We did this for 4 days each night and washing off in the morning. After this period, it was apparent that the EquiMud was doing a marginally better job (although the Vet Gold cream had also improved the condition). We then applied EquiMud to all four hooves in the same way for a further 10 days. Ammo has improved dramatically. The smell no longer exists, the frog and clefs are smooth and free of jelly. Ammo was very sensitive to touch in the clef / frog and rather ‘footie’ on uneven ground. He is now walking normally, and sensitivity is minimal. This problem is a deep infection over many years that has not previously been fully resolved. I have advised the owner to continue tubbing and applying the mud each night until her farriers next visit. He will then trim and remove dead horn from the hooves and hopefully enable the mud to access deeper into the hooves. I suggested they resume the same treatment for 10 days after the farrier visit and then we will review. This is a very important case because these types of fungal infections are very difficult to deal with. If the EquiMud can cure this, it will be a tremendous selling point for the product. UPDATE 16.11.18 The infection in the hoof capsules has improved tremendously and the farrier is amazed at the progress.
GUCCI 9 year old Irish Draught gelding, top level showing, owned by E.Morrell Gucci has an undefined skin condition that flares up periodically regardless of the season. Several vets have been unable to diagnose the problem which creates ugly areas of skin. It self-heals, usually within 2 weeks which is a disaster for a top-level show horse who is judged in competition on his turnout and coat quality. We applied EquiMud to the affected area in the evening, we did not apply a dressing. We washed it off in the morning and applied VetGold cream after towel drying the area. We repeated the routine the following day. Within 48 hours the affected area was healed completely. I recommended the owner continue the routine for a further 10 days. Since my return there have been no further problems.
