I was only able to afford my mare, because she came at a
reduced price due to a sudden head shaking problem. She showed so much talent
that I decided to take the risk and try to find a solution to her problem.
We bought a nose net, tried various feed supplements, logged
down any significant details to try and pinpoint the headshaking, discussed and
took advice from veterinary surgeons etc.
Sometimes it worked yet sometimes the headshaking was so
violent that I could hardly ride her; we could find no set pattern to any of
it. Sometimes the treatments
appeared successful and then, out of the blue, she would start again and we
would be limited as to what we could do with her. It was so frustrating and heartbreaking having a fabulous
horse that was in obvious discomfort when these episodes occurred.
We racked our

first FEI competition loomed and I had to be vigilant as to what she could
have because of the strict rulings on prohibited substances and nose nets; I

NOSTRILVET. Anything is worth a
try, she suggested, especially as it is all legal. We tried it and haven’t looked back since. She has not head
shaken once since she has been using the product and is altogether a much
happier horse. It has been a
godsend and has turned the management of my mare around. It is simple to

affordable. We are now able to focus on the future and actually enjoy her
instead of worrying about her.
I totally endorse this product and would recommend anyone
with a head shaker to try NOSTRILVET.
