A moody mare can make riding, training and general management difficult, dangerous and unpleasant. When mares come into seasons, they can exhibit a whole range of challenging behaviours, usually because they’re tender and uncomfortable. A mare supplement can help to settle stroppy mares when they’re in season and reduce the behaviours associated with mares being in season. Our moody mare supplement has been formulated to naturally regulate the endocrine system and make a mare’s seasons more manageable and less uncomfortable for her. Supporting a healthy, regulated reproductive tract and seasons with a stroppy mare supplement such as Moody Madam will go a long way to making the cycling months easier and happier for you and your horse. Moody Madam should not be fed to a mare in foal.
