Horse muscles, joints, bones and ligaments can be supported with essential oils. And support for healthy skeletal and muscle systems is not really at all different than humans so I would definitely review those sections on the website as well.
The one advantage we have at supporting horse muscles is that horses generally respond very well to the use of essential oils. And we can use them in several application methods. The three applications we use the most at the barn are:

These oils will help muscles recover and will may provide some minor pain relief associated with exercise.
If you want a greater warming sensation than Ortho Sport would be a good choice.

What Essential Oils should I use to Support Healthy Ligaments or Tendons?
The best essential oils for horse ligaments are:
You can also use Ortho Sport as base oil or as a wash. If you are wishing to support healthy circulation in legs, ligaments and tendons, use Cypress which may be combined with the other oils.

And of course use the other oils to promote healthy joints and muscles as well.
What Essential Oils can I use as a Horse Liniment or Muscle Wash?
Any of the horse muscle oils that I mentioned you can use easily as a horse liniment or muscle wash. There are many different combinations you can use again depending on what you are trying to achieve. Click here for a section devoted to that topic and for homemade liniment recipes!
My horse needs to detox, has sore muscles after exercise or is out of alignment. Is there a technique I can use with the oils for my horse?
Yes, there is a technique called Raindrop Technique. This was developed for humans but now is being applied to equines. If I have a horse that is energetically out of alignment, I will use Valor daily on his tailbone to assist in energetically aligning the spine.

Want to treat your horse to a Spa Day for those Sore Muscles and Back?
