Organics4Horses, a newly formed South Carolina-based corporation, is rolling out the Equimend family of products that uses bio-based technology to control the most common hoof and skin problems of horses.
Developed and tested in the southeast for over 10 years, the Equimend products have been successful in the treatment of such conditions as aural plaque, rain rot, scratches, thrush, and white line disease.
The Equimend products target bacterial, fungal and insect related skin ailments in a safe and gentle manner for horses and the humans who look after them. All Equimend Products are made from bio-based materials that are groundwater safe and contain no GMOs. There are no burning, stinging, or harsh fumes to irritate skin and lungs as with conventional products containing caustic and sometimes toxic chemicals.
Shannon Valentine, Director of Research/Development, says, “My goal is to find high quality products that will be effective against common dermatological conditions yet safe for my children and my horses. Our eco-friendly products help reduce the carbon hoofprint for our planet."
The company successfully debuted its safe, non-toxic, and non-staining product line at the AAEP’s annual convention and trade show in November 2011. John H. Burt, CEO, says, “Typical questions concerning anything labeled organic are: Is it effective? Will it be affordable? Our product line’s effectiveness exceeds most conventional treatments and at a comparable price level.”
