Calming Agents


Valerian Calm can be used to calm all types of fractious, over anxious or nervous horses. It has been widely used to settle horses, during various types of training and competition. It is the classic calming herb but has fallen out of favour due to the FEI ban. It is important to stress that Valerina in only banned by the FEI and is still very useful in training.

We have just completed a series of trials which show that only a 24 hour withholding period is needed prior to competition.

Valerian Calm is particularly useful as an aid in the education of young horses. It helps to settle horses during their inevitable first exposure to transportation, shoeing, teeth or vet inspection.

Valerian Calm does not impair the horse’s ability to learn or its judgement. It is not a sedative and will not show a strong sedating action. Unlike sedating agents Valerian Calm is safe to administer even if a horse is already excited.

Valerian Calm is quick acting. You should see an effect within 30 minutes, although it may take an hour to achieve maximum effect. This will vary between individual horses.

Valerian Calm contains only liquid extract of Valerian.

Suggested Dose
Horses 10 - 20 mL as required
Ponies 5 - 10 mL as required

The dose can be repeated three hourly if needed. Some horses may respond better if given a regular dose each morning and evening.


24 hour withholding for this product.

Valerian may cause a positive swab as a prohibited substance. Care should therefore be taken if participating in an event that may be testing the horses for prohibited substances.

Under normal circumstances no adverse effects should be experienced, but VERY occasionally a horse will become more rather than less agitated after being given Valerian.

Store in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
Keep out of reach of children.

Size: 500ml
