Additionally, SNM Performance Ultra is compliant with both FEI and USEF competition regulations — making it the product of choice serious competitors.
History of Horse Liniment
The SNM line wasn’t created in a day. There is a long history of topical pain relievers and formulas that we’ve learned from to create the ultimate, modern, all-natural horse liniment. Here is a brief overview of the history of horse liniment and how it evolved to become the go-to natural pain reliever. For a more in-depth dive into the history of horse liniment and the foundation in which SNM was built on, check out our Horse Health blog post.
Liniment and topical pain relief can be traced all the way back to ancient times. Socrates, Alexander the Great, and Galen all used olive oil to relax warrior and athlete's muscles and relieve overall soreness. Later on, China changed liniments as we know them first with snake oil, then by adding ingredients like camphor and menthol to Tiger Balm. All of this eventually led to the creation of the all-natural, ultra-powerful SNM that we know today.
