Training Aid


Valeriana off.

When you need a reputable Valerian calmer.

V-Calm is designed to calm over anxious or nervous horses. It is widely used to settle young horses, during all types of training. It is particularly useful in helping to calm fractious horses in the stalls, for transportation or for disturbing events like shoeing or teeth inspection.

V-Calm does not effect the horse's judgement or cause drowsiness, and is safe to use whilst jumping and hunting. It is safe to administer even if the horse is already excited.

Sadly, because of its efficiency, Valerian is now tested for, so our V-Calm should not to be used for 24 hours prior to a competition or event where testing occurs.

V-Calm is a rapidly absorbed fast acting liquid extract. It contains only rich concentrated plant extracts, with no added fillers such as cider vinegar or honey.

V-Calm contains a pure tincture of Valerian (Valeriana officinalis).

Like all our products these tinctures are at a strength of 1:2 ; the strongest concentration available to the equine market.

NOTE : V-Calm has a 24 hour withholding period as it contains Valerian.

"I bought Equine Herbals V-Calm and Devils Claw Flex from a recent VIP night at Clarefville Saddlery in Carterton. I used V-Calm for the first time this weekend before a SJ event.
My horse was wound like a tightly coiled spring before I loaded him on to the float. 40 minutes later when at the show and tacking up he was as quiet and gentle as a lamb. Stood completely still for me to boot him up and was very relaxed when working in.
We went on to have a very sucessful day and I believe that his softened attitude really helped us both."

Thanks for a great product!

To Whom It May Concern : Re: V-Calm

This is to certify that our clinic has stocked and sold "V-Calm" for approximately the last eighteen months.
I have personally seen it used on some nervous / insecure yearling thoroughbreds, and while effects are variable, I have seen some very good responses with significant calming of individual horses.
It is good to see that people who have bought this product have often returned and bought more, appreciating the chance to calm nervous horses without having to resort to traditional drugs.

"Hi, I feel I must drop you a line about V-Calm.
I was at my wits end with my horse, a 5 year old ArabxHanovarian/TB gelding. He's very highly strung and I had given up competing him in dressage comps as he would be so spooky he wouldn't listen to me at all and would be constantly looking at scarey things around the arena.
I phoned up the helpline and spoke to a very helpful lady who recommended V-Calm. I bought some the next day and put him on to 20mls a day starting on Thursday last week, on Friday and Saturday he was much more settled to ride, listening to me and cooperative!
On sunday I went to a dressage competition, and did prelim 4 and 7.
I gave Axel 60mls of V-Calm that morning.
Axel was settled in the warm up and only slightly spooky in the arena, looking at the flowers and the judges car. He was trying really hard to concentrate on me and wasn't being his usual argumentative self at all. He went nicely and I was delighted to get 62% and 2nd place in P4 and 65.5% and 1st place in P7!!!
I'm sure it was the effect of the V-Calmas I hadn't done anything else differently, and I'd like to say a big thank you and I will be using it all the time from now on.
Would highly recommend this product."
Thanks again
