Now that summer has arrived and the ground will be drying each day, with any miniscule shower just dampening the dust. During the summer many of us are out competing and, on hard ground, joints and muscles can easily get tired, sore and jarred. Absorbine’s Liquid Embrocation contains a time honoured blend of calendula, Echinacea and wormwood herbs and is ideal for use as a muscle rub on sore muscles, stiff joints and tendons by helping to support circulation before or after work. After finishing your competition with a sweaty horse, Liquid Embrocation can be diluted with water and used as a refreshing body wash, to revitalise your horse. Also available in a gel form, which is quick and convenient to apply to joints and muscles after work. (Liquid 950ml RRP £15.88 475ml £10.80) (Gel RRP £11.70)
