Absorbine

At Absorbine® , we know that the time you spend with your horses — whether in the barn or in the saddle — is truly rewarding. So we’ve developed a line of horse care products that helps ensure that your horses look, feel, and perform their best, whether on the trail, in the ring, or just hanging out in the barn — anywhere you share those special moments. It’s something we’ve been committed to since our founding more than a century ago, when Wilbur F. Young and his wife, Mary Ida, knew that there had to be a better way to care for their horses. It was that belief that led to the creation of the very first Absorbine® horse liniment. And the beginning of a legacy that has led to Absorbine® becoming “The Horse World’s Most Trusted Name® .” Today, whether it’s helping soothe muscle and joint pain, protecting your horses from biting and nuisance flies, caring for their hooves, or helping them look magnificent, Absorbine® is here to help. Like you, we’re dedicated to horse care. And we have been since 1892.
