Benefits of Equine Salt Rooms
Drug free treatments for high performance equine athletes.
Our world first Equine Salt Rooms aim to improve and maintain performance, recovery and wellbeing of equine athletes via our patented dry salt therapy delivery system.
The dual treatment offers benefits for skin conditions and respiratory complaints of which horses are often susceptible.
Drug Free Therapy
The use of Equine Salt Therapy reduces the reliance on antibiotics and other often harmful medications by providing a natural solution to day to day lung and skin issues. Our salt rooms provide a safe and calm environment reducing stress on the horse.
Despite their size and strength horses are sensitive animals and respiratory problems aren’t always evident, but can play havoc on a horse’s demeanour and performance. Mucus can range in severity from Grade 1 to Grade 5. By delivering a finely measured dose of Ultisalt (TM) the horse can stand calmly and ingest the salt which activates their own mucociliary escalator.
Lower Airway Disease (L.A.D)
LAD is fairly common and often undiagnosed in horses that are usually retired from racing for poor performance. A recent UK study (can we link to this?) indicates a link between poor performance and undiagnosed L.A.D. Our fine salt particles are ingested deep into the horses lower airway and successfully targeting L.A.D.
Reduces Travel Sickness
Transport of horses by road and sea can make them susceptible to pleuropneumonia or travel sickness. This is a respiratory infection that affects the lungs and pleural (chest) cavity in horses. Salt therapy before and after travel, uses the known antibacterial qualities of Ultisalt (TM) to target offending bacteria.
Treats Mud Fever
Salt therapy aids in recovery of various inflammatory conditions such as summer sores, mud fever and cracked heels. Salt treatment soothes irritation and dermatitis in the lower limbs of horses due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Rapid Skin Rash Clearance
Horses are susceptible to various skin complaints such as dermatitis, boils, mud-fever and ringworm. In salt rooms a microclimate environment is created and when the salt settles and warms on the coat it is drawn into the skin. The salt then has an antibacterial affect which successfully treats skin conditions.
In many respiratory tract conditions, airways become narrowed and irritated filling with mucus where bacteria flourish. Not only does salt help expel bacteria through mucus clearance, but is a natural antibacterial.
Salt therapy not only helps pre and post race but pre and post training as well. Our trainers use Equine Salt Therapy not just for post race recovery but as part of their day-to-day training tools.
The fine dry salt particles are distributed through the room via a halo-generator to create a perfect microclimate for optimal absorption.
Equine Salt Therapy offers natural, non-invasive treatment. Salt therapy provides a dual solution to common day to day horse complaints.
This unique adaptation of salt therapy for use with horses was developed and perfected by our founder, Richard Butterworth in Australia.

OUR HAPPY CLIENTS
Equine Salt Therapy is a great natural training aid that does not upset the horses preparation when dealing with lung and skin issues.Group Level Trainer Cranbourne Turf Club
Salt Therapy was a very positive addition to what we can offer the horses and give a greater degree of possibility of success for the clients. The sole reason we got one horse back on track was the Salt Therapy after the 12 months of being very sick and it is performing better than ever. It's certainly a very positive treatment for our stable.Five and a Half Star & Shadows in the Sun
We've been using Salt Therapy over the last couple of years and found it to be very beneficial especially for horses with mucus issues. It's alleviated the need for antibiotic. Just recently, we took the horses into the salt room pre-race, for 3-4 days just to make sure that we covered all the bases. We'll keep using it for sure.Cranbourne Turf Club
Like a lot of this with training... This is one of those percentage things. You hear of so many horses pulling up after a race being disappointed by a bit of mucus in their trachea after the race. Like Polanski, week leading up to the Derby he was in the salt room, so we can take him there 100% right.Polanski & Lord of the Sky
