Itching for a solution? 

What is TurmerItch™?

A skin and coat supplement that is absorbed into the blood stream rather than applied topically. The active ingredients in TurmerItch™ support biting insect repulsion and help maintain reduced sensitivity as demonstrated during trials with the supplement over a 12-month period.

    What is Sweet Itch in horses?
    Sweet Itch in horses is caused by the bites of female biting midges.

    Sweet itch in horses is caused by an allergic reaction to the protein in the saliva of these female biting midges. This causes the immune system to attack its own cells and leads to the extreme reaction. Read more on Sweet Itch here.

    Using TurmerItch™  as part of sweet itch management is a new approach which proved to be very effective in trials. By introducing into the dietary system it can help to optimise digestive health, the microbiome and gut integrity, thus the allergenic contribution to the itch threshold is reduced; subsequent challenges from biting insects may then fall below the threshold, so helping to reduce the scratching and damage to the coat and skin.

    TurmerItch™ combines key specialist ingredients including Neem, Red Bush Tea and Chamomile, to help provide relief from itching and soothe the skin by promoting a healthy skin and coat. TurmerItch™ also contains Turmeric and Cooked Linseed to help produce a high shine to the horse’s coat.


    Key benefits

    Reduces itching – Red Bush Tea and Beetroot are important ingredients within TurmerItch as the anti-oxidant properties can help soothe itchy, dry and irritated skin. 

    Repels insects – Neem, a tree used in traditional asian medicine, supports the immune system and helps to repel the insects and flies.

    Promotes hair regrowth – ingredients in TurmerItch synergistically work together and during the trial we saw significant improvement with bald patches and mane and tail hair growth.

    Soothes the skin – the Chamomile in Turmeritch can help soothe the skin and helps calm the nerves and reduce the stress the horse may be experiencing.


    • Pelleted to make them very palatable.
    • Naturally low in sugar, TurmerItch is suitable for horses and ponies prone to laminitis.
    • You can prep and prime with TurmerItch. Sweet Itch affects most horses from March until October but priming them with TurmerItch ahead of the midge season will give them a barrier to help them be less responsive to bites.

    What is TurmerItch?

    TurmerItch is our skin and coat supplement in a unique pellet form. It can be used to maintain a healthy skin and coat or can help horses and ponies with issues such as biting insects and other skin conditions.

    How do I feed TurmerItch?

    TurmerItch is such a versatile supplement that it can be added to daily feed or simply fed by hand – your horse/pony won’t turn their nose up at it!

    What are the benefits of feeding TurmerItch?

    TurmerItch can help with healthy skin and coats, repel biting insects, promote hair re-growth, provide soothing properties, and much more!

    Can the pellets be soaked?

    If needed, yes! This versatile supplement can suit any type of feed!

    Do I need to add anything extra to this supplement?

    No! TurmerItch is a complete supplement which has been formulated to be fully bioavailable.

    As there is no black pepper in TurmerItch, what makes it bioavailable?

    Quercetin which is found in Milk Thistle makes this supplement bioavailable.

    What is bioavailability?

    Bioavailability is the ease with which any nutrient can make its way from the food eaten into the body.

    Why should I choose pellet over a powder supplement?

    TurmerItch has been formulated with the highest quality ingredients to optimise bioavailabilty of the key functional ingredients. TurmerItch provides no mess and ensures your horse gets their daily dose unlike powders which can get stuck round their feed bowl or avoided.

    My horse is a fussy eater, how do I know that he will eat TurmerItch?

    TurmerItch has been formulated to be super tasty to horses and ponies! If you are unsure, then why not request a sample from us to try before you buy?!

    Why is this supplement expensive compared to others?

    We have spent a lot of time carefully formulating this supplement to provide the desired effect. This has meant that we have had to put a lot of high-quality expensive ingredients into TurmerItch.

    Can I feed this supplement alongside others?

    You may not need to, but TurmerItch can be fed alongside most supplements, we would advise to check with your vet if you had any concerns.

    How long does TurmerItch last?

    Based on a 500kg horse, TurmerItch will last approx. 40 days.

    How much do I need to feed?

    Please see our feeding guidelines tab for more information.

    Can TurmerItch help with Sweet itch?

    TurmerItch can help with many itchy skin conditions in horses and ponies. Did you know that we trialled this supplement before we launched it and had a great success rate?
    TurmerItch™ feeding rates:
    • Ponies (Under 300kg)

      1 Tbsp, twice daily

    • Horses & Ponies (500kg)

      1.5 Tbsp, twice daily

    • Horses (Over 700kg)

      2.5 Tbsp, twice daily

    *1.5 Tbsp holds approx. 25g*

    You can increase the feeding rates if required to a level that best suits your horse.

    Neem Powder

    We have included Neem Powder as it supports the immune system and keeps away insects

    Red Bush Tea

    It is rich in antioxidants and helps dry, itchy and irritated skin.

    Chamomile Powder

    Due to its calming qualities it helps to calm nerves and reduce stress

    Milk Thistle Seed

    Supports the liver and skin health 

    Turmeric Powder

    We believe in the whole root rather than just an extract as turmeric is made up of over 200+ compounds that synergistically work together. Our curcumin levels will never be lower than 5.1%. We source from Indonesia carefully choosing quality, sundried turmeric and steering clear of fillers or additives.


    Salt is included in this formula as it contains many of the valuable minerals your horse needs to promote a healthy balance in the body

    Apple Cider Vinegar

    Our apple cider vinegar is complete with “the mother”. We use this unfiltered version as it keeps the beneficial bacteria, yeast and protein. It is ripe with B-vitamins and polyphenols (plant-based antioxidants) and includes compounds such as quercetin which can help with absorption and bioavailability. It is also essential for good health and increases palatability 

    Cooked Linseed

    Sourced from the UK, we use 100% whole linseed that has been cooked and micronized to provide the highest quality and to optimise digestibility and bioavailability of its nutrients. Linseed is high in oil, ideal to help with absorption of curcumin and is also rich in omegas 3, 6 and 9, and has natural antioxidant properties. It helps to maintain a healthy and shiny coat

    Grass Nuts

    100% chopped dried grass, cut, and processed to preserve the maximum levels of natural nutrients

    Diamond V

    Sourced from the states, it works naturally with the biology of the animal to help maintain immune strength, support digestive tissue integrity, and promotes a healthy microbial balance. 


    Contains a range of antioxidants and natural colourants. Generally, a big proportion of the equines diet is grass which is very green containing few types of antioxidants. 

    Because of domestication the modern-day horse is accustomed to lush, managed paddocks, compared to the wild where they would have foraged on shrubs, herbs and other plant material offering a wider antioxidant profile. This is why it is important to include antioxidants alongside vitamins and minerals for a balanced diet.

    • We have noticed plenty of improvements with feeding TurmerItch . Definite hair growth in areas which were bald last summer plus a more comfortable mare. Isla is not half as twitchy and uncomfortable when being groomed and when she has sweated up after work or a competition
      Sarah Patterson
    • Having looked into getting each of the ingredients but I just don’t have time to order all the bits and measure them out and check I’m getting it all right each day Turmeritch makes it really easy to feed the right proportions. She is significantly less itchy, especially around the face which suffered badly last year as she won’t tolerate a fly mask and destroys them to get them off.
