Botanical Choices for Horses





Are you seeking a natural, holistic approach to horse care that promotes the well-being and happiness of your equine companion? Look no further! Welcome to our exclusive Botanical Choices for Horses (Zoopharmacognosy) training course, where harmony between nature and horsemanship awaits you.

We believe that the secret to successful horse healthcare lies in tapping into the abundant resources of nature, all part of the horse’s evolution. Our course is designed to introduce you to the transformative world of botanicals and how they can enhance your horse's physical and emotional healthcare.   Embrace the power of herbs, essential oils, and other natural elements to provide a bespoke healthcare approach.

What is Zoopharmacognosy? It is the study of self-medication in animals and explores the fascinating ways in which animals instinctively seek out and utilise medicinal plants to heal themselves.   Our course focuses on the application of this knowledge specifically to horses, allowing us to understand their natural tendencies and empower us to provide them with appropriate botanical options for their well-being.

By studying with us, you’ll delve into the rich history of how animals, including horses, have long relied on nature's pharmacy to maintain their health. You'll explore the chemical compounds in various plants and how they can be harnessed to support equine health, from reducing inflammation and pain to promoting digestion and boosting the immune system.

This course is aimed at horse owners but if you wish to develop your knowledge and skills further it may inspire you to embark on our career course “Practitioner in Equine Botanical Choices (Zoopharmacognosy)”

The course is currently being updated and will be available online during 2024 and the course fee will be £99.  If you would like to register your interest, please do so with and you will be notified when it is available.

Angela Hall has been working with Zoopharmacognosy and all animals for a number of years, she is also a Master in Herbology.
