Horse Podcast Ep 264: Eco-friendly Horsekeeping

Equestrian Adventuresses Travel and Horse Podcast Ep 264 - Eco-friendly Horsekeeping

How can we keep horses in an eco-friendly way and reduce their and our ecological footprint? This is the question I want to talk about in today’s podcast episode. Horse are big animals, they eat and poop a lot and need space. But did you know that horses are also carbon sequesters and can help saving the planet? Like everything, the question whether horses are good or bad for the climate, is a complicated one and it depends on our horse keeping.

DIY for Horses Projects

Recipe for Horse Shampoo


  • 1 Cup Liquid Soap
  • 1 Tsp Jojoba Oil
  • 1 Tsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tsp Vegetable Glycerin
  • 2 Tsp Witch Hazel
  • Essential Oils (optional)

Gently mix all ingredients in a container with a lid. You can then apply it to your horse’s wet coat, mane and tail. Rinse thoroughly and repeat if needed to remove tough stains.
