Equine America Shaker Gard is a powerful formulation of antioxidants and minerals to support the delicate nerves in the head and nose.

Current research suggests that head shaking may be due to hypersensitivity of the trigeminal nerve, which supplies sensation to the face, nose and muzzle. In head shakers it seems that stimuli such as sunlight or pollen which don’t affect most horses at all,  can cause this nerve  to fire impulses to the brain, and the affected horses are believed to  experience sensations ranging from a mild, irritated tingling through to severe shooting pains like an electric shock.

This hypersensitivity may be seasonal, or can occur all year round and may be triggered by exposure to sunlight, wind, pollen and dust. Some researchers suggest that equine herpesvirus (EHV) may play a role, and other propose a theory that seasonal hormonal changes may also be implicated.

Shaker Gard provides a potent blend of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids and phytochemicals from plants  to support  nerve health, as well as the respiratory, immune  and endocrine systems.

Shaker Gard can be used as a daily supplement long-term or seasonally, either during the pollen filled spring and summer or the crisp bright autumn, or whenever your horse requires the support.
It is also recommended that the horse’s teeth and tack are checked before feeding Shaker Gard.

When should you feed Shaker Gard?

  • If your horse or pony is head shaking, nose rubbing or head twitching

Head shaking is a complex condition. If after investigating other possible causes such as teeth, tack and sinuses you still do not have any reduction in head shaking, try Shaker Gard. Shaker Gard supports the body’s natural mechanisms and responses to seasonal shaking.
