Dry, irritated ears can be a great source of annoyance to horses, causing them to head toss and be generally irritable. Ear Balm can be used on any skin on your horse to moisturise and soothe irritation.

How to apply

Spot check on a small area of skin before use and do not use if a reaction is shown. Rub a small amount onto visible areas of the ear and face. Do not get any in deeper parts of the ear. Re-apply as required.

All of the ingredients in Ear Balm have been chosen to help your horse stay comfortable and protected from summer irritations.

Case Studies from Red Horse Products

This horse presented with a large number of fingerprint sized areas of hair loss and scurf all over his forehead and underneath his forelock. These were sore and itchy, though to have been caused by a reaction to fly bites.

Ear Balm was rubbed into the area on a daily basis, which the horse seemed to visibly enjoy.

Within 4 days the itchiness had subsided and the hair had completely grown back.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use Ear Balm in other areas? - Yes, the balm can be used anywhere apart from very close to the eyes to soften and soothe skin.

How often do I need to re-apply Ear Balm? - Ear Balm usually provides relief from irritation for between 24 and 48 hours.

Will Ear Balm make my horse more prone to sun burn? - The ingredients in Ear Balm have an average SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of around 5 so it should reduce the chances of sun burn.

Can I use Ear Balm on other animals? - We recommend not. We do not know of any other species being intolerant to any of the ingredients, but as Ear Balm is formulated for horses reactions to its ingredients in other animals have not been studied.

Are there any other safety precautions for Ear Balm? - Ear Balm contains nut oils (shea) so it should be kept out of contact with anyone who has nut allergies. With any products containing essential oils we recommend doing a patch test prior to more extensive application on skin.

Is Ear Balm safe to apply with my bare hands? - Yes, as long as you don’t have specific allergies to any of the ingredients.
