Many of you with horses are already familiar with the uses and benefits of a salt block. But for those who are unaware, horses and humans do not produce sodium chloride (salt) naturally, and, therefore, have to obtain it from external sources. To supplement this need, many horse owners provide brick-like salt blocks, or salt bins, for their horses to keep in balance.
It occurred to me the other day that most of us don’t instinctively possess the knowledge we need to be excellent with horses. We require an outside source to fill us in where we’re lacking. So, my hope is for this blog series to become your own personal salt block of insights and encouragement; a place to take a lick of advice when you find yourself out of balance.
Welcome to the Salt Block.
