Equinatura is committed to only manufacturing and selling well-researched and high-quality products, making them a perfect fit for our collection of brands available on Breeches.com.
Think of all the chemicals that surround your horse. From pesticides in fly spray to parabens and sulfates in grooming products to carcinogens in leather cleaners, your horse is constantly surrounded by chemicals. Fears about what’s in beauty products in humans is spreading to the world of horse care, and with good reason.
For example, according to Everyday Health, “While the FDA says that some of these concerning ingredients, including phthalates and parabens, are safe as used, research points to these as potential endocrine disruptors, or chemicals that affect hormones and may increase risk of cancer or fertility problems.”
If the ingredients in human beauty products could harm us, what’s to say the same isn’t happening to your horse? Even worse, the overuse of medications and chemicals is common. Harry Werner VMD spoke to The Horse in regards to the damaging aspects of overusing medications and chemicals in horses. “Any medication—NSAIDs, in particular—can have deleterious side effects ranging from gastric or colonic ulcers to kidney disease and intestinal microbiome disturbances. Use NSAIDs as infrequently as necessary, he says, and only when a veterinarian’s diagnosis deems them appropriate.”
While some of these chemicals are necessary– for example, when your veterinarian prescribes NSAIDs– why not cut back on the use of strong chemicals when you can? In general, the educated use of herbs for horses means fewer side effects and less chemical exposure for your horse. That’s why we’re now offering Equinatura products on Breeches.com, to give our customers the option to avoid harmful side effects due to long exposure to chemicals for both themselves and their horse.
Equinatura was created over two decades ago, when Dr. Ulf Jacoby from leovet first developed high-quality natural horse care products that were both sustainable and affordable. From the very beginning, Equinatura focused on innovation and quality. The brand invested a lot of time and resources in research and development to create the most effective and gentle formulas for its products. They worked closely with veterinarians, horse care specialists, and riders to ensure that their products meet the highest standards.
Equinatura is proud to be a subset of leovet Dr. Jacoby GmbH & Co. KG. leovet is among the leading producers of horse care products in Germany and Europe. The company was founded by pharmacist and competitive rider Dr. Ulf Jacoby in 1982. From the very start, Dr. Jacoby was focused on better health for the horse and less work for the rider. More than 40 years later, that is still the company’s philosophy today. leovet Dr. Jacoby GmbH & Co. KG regularly offers new and innovative products, using only raw materials and active ingredients of pharmaceutical quality. Each of their 60 products provides effective care for horses at the highest level.

Sticking to the philosophy of simple is better, Equinatura products contain only the absolutely essential ingredients.
