Food Grade Pure Bentonite Clay for Horses – “The Healing Clay”
Here is what our customer Emily has to say about Bentonite Clay and how it helped her horse:
I am really kicking myself for not taking before/after photos but my horse looks INCREDIBLE after starting him on the bentonite clay. He is an appendix who has always been high anxiety and I suspect had ulcers long before I got him. However, it was never a serious issue and I chalked his cinchy attitude and ribby stature up to the crabby gelding he was. He was always slow to eat his grain, as long as I had him, so I always assumed he was just a slow eater. All in all, he was always checked off by my vet as a healthy horse. Last year, we took a trip to South Dakota to camp, which was a stressful trailer 14 hour ride. While there, he dropped quite a bit of weight and was merely picking at his grain. Once home, I upped his feed, which helped only slightly. He was shown heavily by a 4-H girl and at the end of the season, was looking worse than he ever had. When I had his yearly teeth float, I explained all the symptoms to my vet and she suggested having him scoped for ulcers. She explained the treatment with ulcergard afterwards and when calculated, it would come to a whopping $1500 for treatment. I do all I can to take care of my animals but for me, that was going to be a financial strain. If it had to be done, it had to be done…but I wanted to do some research first. Someone suggested clay to me and I immediately purchased it. In a month, I started to see a difference. By month two, he was looking better than he ever had. I SWEAR by the bentonite clay for ulcers and have suggested it to every single person I know. I’ve used it on others I suspected had ulcers and give a little extra when we’re going into a stressful situation. I attempted to use one other cheaper product that did not hold up whatsoever. He is no longer cinchy, holds on weight, and scarfs down his grain. For 8 years, I assumed he was just naturally grumpy horse – this last year he has shown me he is so much happier. Not to mention, this product has saved me $$$$ and spared my horse of all the chemical products I was referred to initially. As long as I have my gelding, this will be in my feed room. Thank you from me and from Eli!
Pure Bentonite Clay for Horses used internally, can and will safely, naturally and inexpensively by non-invasive and non-toxic means detoxify your horse of heavy metals and chemicals. Bentonite Clay also reduces pain and infection in open wounds on both humans and animals.
Clay is renowned to have many uses in promoting health in plants, animals and people. Pure Calcium Bentonite Clays have been used by indigenous cultures since before recorded history. Studies show that the use of volcanic ash clay internally goes back thousands of years. Used internally, it supports the intestinal system in the elimination of toxins. The use of clay has achieved miraculous healing of ulcers, chronic pain and even split hooves in horses. Can be used as a poultice for hoof abscesses. Tea tree oil can be mixed with the poultice for its antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal properties.
According to Dr. Richard Anderson, one of the first items to include in an herbal first aid kit would be Hydrated Bentonite. Bentonite is known for its highly absorptive properties and its ability to draw out and bind heavy metals, drugs and other toxins from the horse’s body. This clay has been used for thousands of years as both an internal and external purification aid. And now you can eliminate toxins (such as heavy metals and chemicals), as well as improve digestion and latent energy in your horse without the use of chemicals.
In the ‘Clay Cure’, author Knishinsky writes that clay is part of his diet and he never skips a day without eating it. He writes “When clay is consumed, its vital force is released into the physical body and mingles with the vital energy of the body, creating a stronger, more powerful energy in the host. The natural magnetic action transmits a remarkable power to the organism and helps to rebuild vital potential through the liberation of latent energy. When the immune system does not function at its best, the clay stimulates the body’s inner resources to awaken the stagnant energy. It supplies the body with the available magnetism to run well.”
When hydrated (wet), it generates and maintains a very strong electromagnetic field, which allows it to attract and hold unwanted, non-nutritive substances such as pesticides, chemicals, heavy metals and other toxins so that they can be eliminated from the animal’s body.
Horse breeders have used hydrated clay topically on horse’s legs for cuts and have reported that wounds stopped festering. Added to which the clay assisted the healing process in the faster formation of new, healthy skin. Pure Calcium Bentonite Clay also draws out toxins and bacteria when used as a wet poultice on infections.
By mixing Calcium Bentonite Clay for Horses with liquid (used either internally or externally), the expanded particles develop into a large surface area which enables them to pick up many times their own weight of various body toxins. This large surface is made of a great number of tiny platelets, each with a negative electrical attraction for positively charged toxins. Bentonite clay’s negative charge is responsible for its amazing detoxifying properties: it is a magnet for many toxic elements present in the animal’s body (heavy metals, pesticides, and free radicals), which are positively charged. This physical pulling power of pure Calcium Bentonite Clay for Horses also has an absorbent action (like sticky paper) as toxins are drawn into the porous surface of the clay and eliminated from the horse’s body.
Below is the mineral analysis / chart of our clay:
pH is approximately 9.5
Just one ounce a day in a small amount of water or feed will begin to strengthen the horse’s body internally. And horses like it too! Pure Calcium Bentonite clay also contains more than 70 trace minerals.

This is a review for both the Bentonite and the Pure Unrefined Sea Salt.
Early 2014, my very active 21 year old horse developed ‘thrush’. Soon after, infection spread up to the coronets on all four of his feet. They were swollen with strange ‘cottony’ areas, itchy, oozing, and bleeding. The symptoms were baffling but it was generally diagnosed as a combination of a fungal and an anaerobic bacterial infection. Despite three veterinarians, and a multitude of treatments his condition continued to deteriorate. When he started developing white line disease on top of the other problems, they started hinting at putting him to sleep.
I simply refused to give up and through my own experimentation, discovered that his ‘infection’ was actually an allergic reaction to alfalfa, and rice bran. After removing those ingredients from his diet, his coronets improved significantly, but would still have small flare ups in some areas. Further experimentation lead me to discover that insulin resistance was another factor, but I didn’t put him through the standard test in fear that the steroid injection would trigger a laminitis attack. Putting him on a diet suitable for laminitics minus the allergens improved his condition even further but his coronets, though no longer itchy still had some thin scabbing in some areas.
It took roughly six months to figure everything out, and my horse’s hoof growth had been so compromised by all the past irritation leaving them very dry, rough and cracked. This was when I read about the healing and cleansing effects of Bentonite for horses (and people) online. I was more than willing to give it a shot, and forums lead me to this website.
Due to being overseas, there were some technical difficulties ordering, but Chris and Roger Richardson are such patient and good people and my order was soon on its way. Providentially, they also sent me a package of Celtic Sea Salt along with the clay to try out.
Interestingly, my horse, who has never touched a salt lick in his life, loves the sea salt so much that it is now part of his diet. Then, on the first week of 20 day Bentonite detox, he shed all his winter coat in one day –which I took as a sign that positive changes were happening internally. During the entire detox, his coronets continued to improve and are now completely healed!
Though there are many factors to my horse’s recovery, including homeopathic medicine, and learning how to barefoot trim, I feel that the Bentonite and the Sea Salt helped him get through the final hurdle of his health problems.
Despite all that he went through, he never became unsound but I stopped riding for a period lest I do more damage. Now, we’re back training five times a week again doing medium level dressage work. I almost forgot to mention the sudden jump in his fitness level after the salt and the cleanse. As for his hooves, it’s still a bit early to tell, but I can already see that the new growth is a different color, and that many of the cracks have fused.
I just cannot express in words how overjoyed I am to have my horse back. He also lets me know every day that he is feeling fantastic too.

I just want to say I’m so glad I found this product. We all know as horse owners most horses have some sort of ulcers. This has really helped my horse who was a little ouchy when I would tighten the girth. After using the Bentonite Clay…he feels so much better and so do I !! I am also anxiously waiting to see if this helps his terrible shelly, cracked hooves !! Thanks for another stellar product !

I have been using Bentonite clay for a while now, but I never used as a poultice until this last week. Our horse must have gotten into something, we moved so everything is different within 2 days his legs were back to normal. Extremely happy with the results as a poultice as we well as with the benefit in feeding it to him.😊
