Hops (Humulus lupus)
Hops is a very good nervine for horses that tend to be distracted easily, even though they may not necessarily be very physically “hot” to ride. Your “Hops” horses battle to concentrate on their work and to retain what they learn. I have found that Hops combines well with the other nervine herbs for all types of horses, but especially for the “fizzy” “vervain-type” Thoroughbreds.
Dose: 15g dried herb daily
