THE EFFECTIVE WAY TO IMPROVE THE BEHAVIOUR AND SUPPORT THE WELL-BEING OF YOUR HORSE
WHAT IS WHEATGERM?
WHEATGERM IS THE PART OF THE WHEAT GRAIN FROM WHICH THE NEW PLANT GROWS WHEN THE SEED GERMINATES. IT IS RELATIVELY TINY, THOUGH VERY CONCENTRATED:- THE GERM CAN EASILY BE SEPARATED FROM THE GRAIN.
eCalm is a powder made from fermented wheat germ, is non-toxic and has no detrimental side effects.
HOW DOES eCALM WORK?
eCALM HAS BEEN TESTED ON HUNDREDS OF HORSES OF WHICH THEIR BEHAVIOUR HAS CAUSED MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS. INCORPORATING eCALM INTO THEIR STANDARD DIET HAS BENEFICIAL EFFECTS ON BEHAVIOUR AND SUPPORTIVE ACTIONS ON WELL BEING IN MARES, GELDINGS AND STALLIONS.
eCalm acts as a prebiotic (promotes the growth of beneficial gut bacteria) which activates the gut – brain axis, The overall effect is a positive impact on the horses behaviour and supportive action on well-being.
- eCalm is a micro feed for horses, is unique among calming agents as being a prebiotic.
- a prebiotic is selectively utilised by the microorganisms of the horse gut conferring an overall health benefit.
- With eCalm it is the on gut flora the the initial benefit occurs with consequential benefit to the host organism.
- eCalm improves behaviour and supports general health and well-being.
- The health effects of prebiotic are still being fully understood but we know they often have effects in supporting gut and skin health and if you feed your horse eCalm to improve its behaviour, you should look for effects of this kind.
- A better behaved horse is usually a happy horse. Happy horses make happy riders.
She is a typical chestnut mare, grumpy when being led or in the stable and often unpredictable when ridden. Her grumpiness and biting are both towards people and other horses. When on eCalm she is a lot less grumpy and seems a lot happier in herself. When in season she is very difficult to manage but when on eCalm and in season she becomes normal.
CALM AND FOCUSSED, WHEN IT MATTERS
“BEHAVIOUR IN WARM UP A HUGE IMPROVEMENT, MORE SETTLED AND RELAXED. CONCENTRATION IN ARENA BETTER AND JUMPED WITH CONFIDENCE WITHOUT THE USUAL RUSHING BEHAVIOUR. IMPROVEMENT IN RIDE ABILITY MORE RELAXED AND GREATER CONCENTRATION.”
“Breckenridge you have tested us all but i am pleased to say you are finally showing people what I thought you had all those years ago when I first saw you as a foal! eCalm was the best thing we ever did, your concentration improves and best of all you have started to relax and breathe ….. Me too !!!”
“His coat is looking amazing and his performance has recognisably improved”
“I found his concentration levels were much improved and he listened more. Just became a much more trainable horse.”
Kirsty Aird & Brekenridge
EASIER TO HANDLE
eCalm has been shown to improve horse behaviour particularly aggression, and moodiness.
MORE FOCUSSED IN COMPETITONS
Along with improving behaviour, eCalm has been shown to promote better focus and improve the horses concentration.
CALM AND COMPLIANT
When used on geldings and mares with behavioural problems eCalm has been shown to maintain calmer behaviour resulting a more compliant horse for handler, rider, vet, dentist and farrier etc.
A big ‘thankyou’ to Fiona and her fantastic team at Kingsmead Stables, without whose commitment the recent eCalm trial wouldn’t have been so successful. Kingsmead Stables have over 40 horses and pride themselves om creating a welcoming environment combined with tailored learning programme. Kingsmead included eCalm into their horses routine feeds and were delighted by the positive results, many of the horses showed remarkable improvement in behaviour as shown on the graph.
Ollie is a 16.2 Chestnut Gelding 6 year old who is home bred.
I have tried many other calmers which had no real effect. I have handled him from a foal so knew that the behavior wasn’t from not being well educated and was more to do with a stress or discomfort.
He is a character but …. Since trying the E calm I have found him to be much more settled in his stable and whilst out competing.
Whilst not on e calm he was bad for chewing wood charging round his stable, nipping and dragging us to the field and excessively sweating and getting worked up when out competing.
One of my main concerns was that he always sweated up around his belly and gut area.
He seems to be much more settled in him self and I have seen a difference in him not getting as stressed when out competing. Also there is a great difference in his ride ability. His jump is far rounder and looser through his back.
I have taken him off the E calm twice now and each time I have put him back on it within a few weeks because I see a change in his mood. He has now been on Ecalm for around a year and a half now.

eCalm has made him more relaxed and have a calmer demeanor. He used to rear and buck and throw his head around. Since being on eCalm he has put on a lot more top line and condition. I now have a transformed horse.
Thank you e Calm.”
