Himalayan salt is a great supplement to your horse’s diet. It has an abundance of trace minerals that keep deficiencies away. These beneficial nutrients are great for horses, livestock, and other pets! Himalayan salt is usually hung with a rope in your horse’s stall or run-in shelter. It’s also sold in large blocks for feeding bigger herds.

Most blocks include the following minerals: boron, chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, manganese, selenium, zinc, and others. Your horse will come and lick it as needed!
