Most vets and equestrian specialists are already privy to the benefits of Seabuckthorn for horses. In fact, the clue is in the Greek name for Seabuckthorn - Hippophae Rhamnoides. The name translates roughly to mean 'shiny horse.' When horses are fed Seabuckthorn for a month or more, their coat is likely to improve in both texture and shine. Seabuckthorn also appears to have a positive effect on the overall health of the horse, including improving the strength of their immune system, reducing stress levels, and increasing their appetite. It is the strong and unique concentration of natural vitamins and anti-oxidants which is thought to be responsible for the health-promoting benefits of Seabuckthorn in horses. Recent research suggests a benefit to feeding Seabuckthorn to horses with glandular gastric ulcers. Horses are particularly susceptible to developing gastric ulcers, or Equine Gastric Syndrome (EGS) at some point in their lives. This is particularly true of race horses and working horses. These ulcers are typically treated with a medicine which changes the pH of the stomach, which is contrary to the natural gut environment. As such, a natural alternative to this treatment would be highly desirable. Scientists have found that administering Seabuckthorn supports digestive health, particularly in the case of glandular ulcers. This is likely to be due to the vitamin C and E, carotenoids, flavonoids and fatty acids present in the Seabuckthorn. Horses that may benefit from Thunderbrook Seabuckthorn include those with: Poor performance. Dull and 'stary' coats. Fussy eaters. Cribbing, constant chewing, eating wood and dirt. 'Girthy" Reluctance to lift hind legs.

Seabuckthorn is a deciduous shrub, bearing fruit that is usually orange or yellow in colour. The shrub is commonly found growing in remote, cold and high altitude areas of Tibet and China. As such, Seabuckthorn is often affectionately referred to as the 'Himalayan fruit.'4 The hardy temperament of the plant prevents nutrient loss from occurring, even in extreme weather conditions.
