Some horses can become fractious and difficult to handle for certain procedures. These commonly include clipping, dentistry and sometimes even shoeing. We are happy to come out and sedate your horse if necessary, which will reduce its anxiety and make any procedure calmer, safer and more efficient.
Sedation is not expensive, is carried out routinely and is generally considered a safe and predictable process – much more so than struggling with an unwilling horse. With a useful sedated period of about an hour most tasks can be comfortably completed with a minimum of stress for horses and owners alike.
