Mane Event Equestrian Supplies is a family-run business situated in the hills of Perth, Western Australia.
Our business started 6 years ago from the desire to source natural and holistic products to help the health of our own horses and dogs. After years of struggling with traditional medications and no improvement in one of our horses we looked at alternative treatments in the way of Aloe Vera and Herbs with outstanding results. Veterinary medicines have their place in the animal world and are sometimes the only way an illness can be treated but sometimes herbal, natural products can be just as beneficial without the side effects of synthetic medications.
Our range has grown rapidly and we have a reputation of sourcing only the best products. Our online store is now servicing customers Australia wide and our products can be found in over 30 Stockfeed Stores. We have expanded our online store offering Equestrian Wear and Horse Accessories together with being the distributor for some truly fantastic products such as CEN Products, Essential Wraps, Equine Super Goo, Sand Flush and Wound Wax.
We hope we can help you with any queries you may have.
Here is our story and how we were introduced to the amazing healing properties of Aloe Vera….
For over two years our young horse was grumpy, continually getting sore in the back, wearing away his hind toes, wasn't forward in his work and was scouring intermittently to the point where we had to cut all the tail flaps off his rugs. He did present as very healthy, good weight and a shiny coat. After taking him to four different vets over this period and all of them telling us there was nothing wrong with him, or drenching him thinking it was sand build up (which made things so much worse) we decided to look "outside the box" and contacted a small animal vet and also a TCM vet and acupuncturist.
We ran bloods, DNA testing, fecal samples, worm counts and results came back that he was infected with Ghiardia and Helicobacter (a bacterial infection associated with stomach ulcers) and of course ulcers. Both vets were unsure if the bacterial infections came first or if the long term untreated ulcers caused the bacterial infections. We started a very intense course of Flagyl over a 6 week period. The effect was immediate with my horse manuring a thick, black smelly discharge for days. After the Flagyl we knew we had to deal with the ulcers and proceeded with acupuncture to relieve his pain together with Aloe Gel twice a day to heal the ulcers and encourage healthy bacteria back into the gut. Within 3 days he was showing great signs of improvement. Within 3 weeks he was amazing!!! He had become a much happier horse, was working wonderfully under saddle, soreness issues had disappeared and he had so much more energy.
To this day, we continue to administer Aloe Vera every day to our horses for preventative maintenance together with other herbs and a completely natural diet with NO processed feeds. Our horses look and feel amazing and we truly believe they are healthy from the inside out.
Our horse did not present as a "text book" case of a horse with ulcers. He was a great weight, had a healthy coat and ate everything.
Our next horse - Bell, came to us with serious skin issues, to the point she would rub herself against trees, sprinklers and fence posts continually. Her coat and skin was rough, dry and flaky and she had dandruff all along her mane and the top of her tail. We commenced feeding with Aloe Vera and herbal supplements and within a few weeks she was showing huge signs of improvement. Today she is a picture of health and I continue to add Aloe Vera to her feed every day.
If you are unsure of your horse's health problems we strongly advise that you consult a vet.
