Pharmacy in Your Field

Use free, wild, abundant plants to give you a more active role in your horses care.

Course Information

This taster session will show you how to harness some of the wild, free plants in and around your pasture that you might once have thought of as useless weeds, and to give you a sense of how easy this can be, empowering you to be more active in the role of caring for your horse’s health and well-being.

You will not need special equipment – I am keeping my set up as rustic as possible to demonstrate this. Nor will you need skills that require years of practice.

We will also run through a few plants with multiple uses that are easy to find staples for any home herbalist. All of which will be used in my full course. Now is the time to start collecting them.

What You'll learn

In this class we will look briefly at the uses of herbs, the importance of identification, how to harvest ethically, how to dry and store your new herbs, then make up a mane and tail detangling spray/coat shine that costs nothing. You will feel rather pleased with yourself once you have made it.

All plant properties and uses discussed in this course have been evaluated in clinical studies.

Amelia is a qualified medical professional and self-researched herbalist specialising in natural & healing medicines for equines & humans.

Amelia shares “My own journey into herbalism began when I emigrated to Bulgaria, suddenly I had my own land to manage and nobody to confer with. The property is the last remaining house in an abandoned village, completely wild and never chemically treated. I didn’t know what most of the hundreds of plants, shrubs and trees were. I am 3 hours from the nearest horse vet and an hour from a hospital. I needed to get smart, fast. Knowing these plants and being able to utilise them, could make a huge difference to my life. “

Fabulous introduction

This free introductory course is well presented at a pace that supports understanding. Totally new to foraging but already I remember seeing some the plants about the land. The video is excellent with assisting the identification. Thank you Amelia, I look forward to the full course.😃

Great introduction

I really enjoyed this well presented taster course. Loved the videos and the easy way the instructions were given. I couldn't find any mallow on our land so will be looking for a way to introduce some. Have been walking around the fields looking at plants with renewed interest. Well done!
