“Building material of the body in hydrolyzed form”
HELTIE horse® Silicon is made of hydrolyzed silicon and supports the construction of bones, cartilage, hooves, skin and coat. The mineral silicon supports the production of the body’s own glucosamine and can be used in horses that eat sand or in horses with lower quality hooves. HELTIE horse® Silicon contains an active, hydrolyzed form of silicon that is 100% absorbable. The silicon molecules are very small so that they can pass through the intestinal wall.
Basic mineral for horses
The mineral silicon belongs to the basic ration for horses. The mineral silicon plays an important role in bone formation and also in the production of cartilage. The mineral silicon is therefore extremely suitable for both young horses and older horses. Silicon can be combined well with HELTIE horse Joints and/or HELTIE horse Clove/Cannabidol.
Hydrolyzed silicon is not too similar to ortho-silicic acid. With ortho-silicic acid, the PH value is extremely increased or decreased and it is mixed with choline or another buffer to stabilize the pH. When the silicon is then brought back with water, the silicic acid will go back to the silicon dioxide form (SiO2). This form is less absorbable and contains less active silicon than the hydrolyzed form. The pH value of hydrolyzed silicon is around 10.2 and is completely absorbable.
Silicon takes time
Bones and hooves are slow-growing tissues, so the mineral silicon needs time to work. Therefore, give silicon for at least 2-3 months and for the hooves at least 4-6 months. Silicon may be given permanently, especially in older horses this is recommended.
Also suitable for dogs
HELTIE horse® Silicon can also be used in dogs. We have pipettes and dosing syringes available in the webshop for easy administration.

Really SO happy that I read about this product and tried it, instead of giving a sand cure. My 4 year old mare was a sand eater! So much so that she had an emergency surgery last year and we were really lucky! And yes, you read that right, she WAS a sand eater! Grateful for this fantastic product! Thank you! Away grazing mask and away sand cures.. ♥️
My horse is feeling better, has shiny fur and after a few weeks she was no longer licking sand. Hope it stays that way!
I have been giving this product for 6 months now and see a clear difference in my horse’s hooves and in her skin
Stopped using the silicon for a few weeks last spring but noticed, very clearly, that she was starting to walk stiffer. She’s been getting it every day since and makes it through the winter without a trace of stiffness.👌🏻
Use this for more than half a year now, and my horse has much better hooves than before.
My arabian is outside 24/7 with open stable since last winter. I started this summer with the silicon and cannabidol, which I give all year long. One stop after each bottle of Cannabidol due to habituation. I notice a significant difference in the skin and hooves and winter coat from last winter. She is nice and supple through her body.
Super satisfied with this product! More than 2 years ago I tried if this silicon could replace the much more expensive supplement that my horse got for his osteoarthritis. The answer was a resounding yes. In fact, he became a lot smoother and felt much better in his body (happy horse = happy owner). The only thing I had hoped for was that this would also help with his rotten and porous hair, but unfortunately this is not the case for us.
My horse has been getting this for about half a year now, and recently received a compliment from my farrier that his hooves looked so good.
So keep using this product.
After 2 bottles the horse stopped eating sand.
He is comfortable in his skin and is nice and smooth.
Every few months he is given a cure of sicilium.
My pony has licked/ eaten sand for a long time. But no one could tell me what exactly caused it. Only the same answer every time: Yes she is a little short, a mineral or vitamins or something?? …. Even big horse nutrition advisors couldn’t give me the right answer… Finally found the answer through your site!! So happy with the result; She hasn’t done it since I started with your Silicon.
Great stuff! My 26 year old runs so smoothly now that we use silicon.
Top product! Nice result! My horse has a nice tail growth again.
Silicon gives a nice coat and good hooves, otherwise we have virtually no injuries. Silicon is easy to administer through the feed. Great product.
It takes some time but I see a clear improvement in the feet of my pony
It’s a super good product for my horse, it works well
Works very well in keeping my 22 year old gelding supple. Also his hooves are much better.
During my search for an affordable product that was also maximally absorbed, I came across silicon. First I gave it in combination to completely switch later. I noticed that our horse also stabilized her rot ray and then fully recovered! So I found an affordable product to support her against development of osteoarthritis and on top of that she got rid of her rot ray!! Kill two birds with one stone! I am very satisfied!
My horse is doing very well on this. His coat will shine more, manes and tail are healthier, hooves are firmer and crumble less. In addition, he also suffers less from his osteoarthritis.
We are very satisfied with the Silicon.
Our latest horse, the mini shetland stallion Mylo, had the habit of eating sand, he really scraped it off… of course it cannot be healthy and can have all kinds of nasty consequences.
We started adding vitamins and minerals on the advice of the vet, but that did not have the desired effect yet.
Until we got the tip to give Silicon.
And yes, for us the product fully lives up to its promises. After a few weeks of giving the Silicon over the food, he stopped licking and eating sand. He also has a nice coat and is clearly feeling good again!
You can admire Mylo and his friends on instagram @team_simphony
I have great experience with it !!!
1 of my 7 falabellas was plowing the whole pasture to lick the ground. Now that is gone. Another pony was very laminated. Together with some other preparations I see her condition slowly improving. The other ponies all get a softer coat and better and harder hooves. I’ve been using it for about 2 months now and will definitely continue. I am very happy with it.
I started giving this because my horse and pony always eat black sand. They already get a lot of extra vitamin but still eat sand. Now with the silicon the pony has already stopped completely and my horse is still digging and eating sand, but clearly much less. My old horse always needs a slightly higher dosage of all supplements, so I now give her 14ml per day. And now we just hope that she will stop.
To be honest, I have almost all heltie horse products
I am a fan
I started with joints and silicon because I noticed such a difference in my horse. She always walked a bit short her hooves did not grow quickly. And now the farrier even said that she was almost good on irons in six months. She has always had 1 crazy foot which now looks normal.
Once I started using this and saw effect I continued reading about minerals my horse has mug. And after asking some advice from heltie horse the adviced me to give Heltie minerals.
I have been dealing with it for 2 years now and crusts on her legs keep coming back. I now give minerals and camadol. And 1 leg is crust free and until now it does not came back.
Heltie horse I am so happy with you!
Thank you very much for good advice and great products
Easy to feed through. I do have the feeling that my horse runs smoother. My horse is still licking sand, although it seems less. I have not given it for 3 months, so I am still hopeful that the sand eating will stop.
By the way, very alert from Heltie horse to send an email during the frost period with remainder to keep the Silicon in the house, due to crystallization
My horses eat less sand and 1 of my horses was a bit stiff and stiff, and is a lot smoother after a month and a half of use.
Very satisfied with this product! I give it as a precaution for my horse for the joints combined with Cannabidol. She stays flexible and doesn’t actually eat sand anymore.
In use for our young horse. Notice a clear difference in the quality of his hooves. When we bought it, it had ‘crumbly’ hooves. Now after 2nd bottle very nice strong hooves that no longer crumble
Super positive experience!
I noticed an immediate difference with my horse after a month. She no longer eats sand! She thinks it is a nice supplement and it lasts a long time.
Also very pleased with the service of Heltie Animal. Order is shipped quickly and is delivered quickly. Also nice that samples are included, nice to test new supplements.
We have now ordered and started using our second bottle of silicon. Our three horses get the silicon daily. Our horses like it and simply eat it with their normal feed. The hooves of the young horses are good, the hooves of our old horse are gradually improving.
The young horses did not even have to be trimmed by the farrier, as their hooves were still in good condition at the usual check. We also hope to achieve good results with this product in terms of avoiding injuries. With the 1 liter bottle I do +/- 100 days for 3 horses. Also inquired with our vet and farrier about the use of silicon and they were totally in favor. We will certainly continue to use the product on the basis of the results that we can already see at the moment.
I have been giving silicon to my horse for 2 months to stimulate the joints. Recently I really notice that she walks smoother and as a bonus she really shines like a mirror. She eats it effortlessly through her food from the start.
I bought this product because my horse suffered a fracture. It looked very good on the last Xrays. The surgeon even believes that the fracture heals faster than expected. Of course I can not 100% prove that this is because of the silicon, but I have a good feeling about it and she also radiates completely.
TOP product! Make a real difference! And she shines, really not normal!
I provide this along with heltie horse joints.
I feel like she’s getting stronger.
Especially after a serious injury.
Very satisfied, horse runs much smoother from the start, beautiful shiny coat and healthy hooves I will keep using it!
I bought the Silicon because I noticed my Friesian was eating mud and wondered what was lacking in his diet. The mud eating has stopped and the cracks in his feet have almost disappeared rafter just one bottle. He is no longer as footsore as previously and the shine on his coat is brilliant for a hairy horse going in to winter. I definitely recommend this product, goes straight in his feed, no problems.
I have been adding this since 2 months because our pony started licking a lot of sand in the paddock last year. I haven’t seen her lick sand since I gave this. Because it is liquid, very economical in use. I do all winter with 1 bottle I think!
Very nice to use and great for your horse
I was very skeptical what the use of silicon would do. They can have nice talks from brands, but in the meantime they encountered so much that just remained nice talks. But as skeptics as we had started anyway. Well if you don’t try it you can be sure it won’t work.
And so I started feeding it to my young guy who unfortunately has cracks in his hooves quite quickly and eats sand. Whatever I tried with my farrier, doctor and other practitioners and feeding people. It stayed.
So we started feeding Silicon and after 2 months we saw such a difference that the skepticism was suddenly over. The farrier still had nice feet after 4 weeks and the sand stayed where it was.
Even his best buddy gets it in the meantime just for the sake of convenience and it probably won’t hurt and now we have already started with the third bottle.
But we are so happy with this product. Just like our 2 young guys!
I bought this product for my dogs for the muscles, tendons and joints.
Very easy to add to the feed and I am very satisfied with it
I have been using this product for some time now.
It takes a long time to work but is worth the wait.
You do a long time with a bottle, and after 3 months I started to notice the difference with my horse.
He has a hole in his knee bone joint.
The vet’s injections didn’t help, and neither did the expensive powders.
The horse is only 15 years old and, especially in his mind, still too young to retire. Of course there is no more intensive riding. 2 to 3 times a week in the woods and once a week for a few minutes in the ring. Because he likes it so much.
He will never run 100% pure again, but comfortable is the only thing I hoped for.
I have read a lot and researched a lot.
I came up with heltie silicon and asked the media pannel many questions.
My horse is also gluten-free, so I had to make sure it is gluten-free and gentle on the stomach.
My horse walks a lot more comfortably with its hindquarters, it is really great stuff, I am happy with it. And my horse too. It also tastes very good. His food bowl gets completely licked out.
I have been using the silicon in combination with the cannabidol for my 20 year old horse for almost 3 months now. She already had severe osteoarthritis when she was 2 years old. Been on the Glucosamine for years and that actually went well. Until she had trouble lying down and getting up. Now she has improved so much, she gets up smoothly again and is sleeping in a normal position again! She is happier and has more energy again. And I am very happy that I switched to this combination!
I started with silicon after a minor check ligament injury was diagnosed. Partly because of this, I wanted something that would make him smoother. Glucosamine in powder form was already discouraged to me because most of it has already left the body before it is absorbed.
So I ended up with the silicon and I am super satisfied.
After 4 weeks we were allowed to rebuild, despite the fact that he already has pretty good hooves of himself, I found out that it could still be better and he did lick sand once, but since I feed silicon I never saw it again.
In the meantime I have been giving it for 1.5 years and I really do not stop. (1 time I stopped, but clear difference in start-up stiffness so quickly started again).
Now also ordered the Vit E so I am very curious about the combination 🙂
I tried silicon because my horse back legs made creaking noises. Silicon is said to concentrate on the connective tissue. Now two months later no sound in the hind legs anymore, so I am very satisfied! Other side effects were also very nice, including better hoof quality
A good product and easy to give through the feed.
I have started giving silicon in combination with cannabidol since the beginning of September. At that moment my horse was not well. Now we are 2 months later and he is running well again and he really shines very good. Its thrush has also decreased a lot despite the wet paddocks. I am very satisfied! Customer service is also fast and very friendly.
I have been using this product for about 2 months now and I am very pleased with it. Horse had thrush for a long time, now it looks much better. And shines like a mirror. Clearly a good addition!
I am very satisfied with this product.
Her coat shines so beautifully.
And you can see the hooves improve considerably.
I will definitely continue to give this product.
Since my horse suffered a serious injury from getting stuck with her leg in the bars, I started giving silicon in the hope that it will provide extra support for her joints, tendons and hooves.
Since then she has shined like a mirror, her hooves are back to normal after the trauma in the coronet and she feels good about herself. So I keep giving it as support,
My 4 year old gelding loved to eat sand unfortunately. Now after 1 month of this through his food, he has completely stopped eating sand! Even now that he is more in training, it ensures that he has almost no injuries anymore! Highly recommended against sand food and injuries !!
My stallion is 22 years old and I ride M2 dressage with him. As he got older he had start-up problems, and got crippled very regularly. Together with the people at Heltie Horse, we discussed what would be best, they recommend the silicon to me. After a few weeks the difference was already noticeable, irregularity disappeared. It’s easy to say about the food, and they don’t think it’s dirty either. I also think this is a very affordable product. You do a few months with 1 bottle. Really worth it. Thanks to the people at Heltie horse for the good advice
Super product for hooves with cracks! My horse had very bad hooves and these are now very nicely recovered and healthy.
I now use it from July 2020. Super supplement. My horse’s coat looks great! I no longer have to give her Glucosamine separately, which is very nice because this product contains so much. I had bought it because she suddenly started licking sand, that is also over. Super happy with this product my mare is 16 and is doing so well. I use it together with your mineral supplement!
Fine product, not feeding it for very long now but I see already better hooves.
I started with silicon because my horse was digging a lot when he was in the paddock. He wasn’t only digging, but also licking the sand afterwards!
I went Googling and ended up with HeltieHorse silicon. I thought: if it doesn’t work, it doesn’t hurt. I am positively surprised by the effect! My horse no longer digs or licks the sand. Silicon also has a positive effect on the hooves. These are much firmer and less dry, even my farrier was amazed! In the meantime I am already giving the second bottle and I am now also giving it to my ponies. I also see a difference in their hooves after 2 weeks. I will continue to use this product and recommend it to everyone!
I ordered the silicon for my horse’s hooves, they were very dry and cracked very fiercely. Have been giving it for 2.5 months now and you can clearly see results, they are sturdy and rarely or hardly tear anymore. Super product.
I have been using the Heltie Horse Silicon (in combination with Cannabidol) for almost 3 months now because of osteoarthritis in my horse and have just stopped giving glucosamine.
My horse does not suffer less, so that is already positive because I was looking for an alternative to glucosamine. But because I have been using it for a relatively short time, I hope for even more results.
What really amazed me is that his tail and mane have become softer and that he has a nice coat. And it is remarkable that since the last time the farrier visited, hooves have looked great despite the enormous dryness. Hardly crumbled and no cracks. He has nice hard hooves. And its thrush was restored in no time.
So all in all so far there are positive and happy with the product!
My horse ate sand and his hooves always grew very slowly. If the farrier had made the hooves too short, he could easily walk sensible for 3 weeks. He also found it hard to lose his winter coat.
After 2 months of giving silicon, the farrier went and his hooves were only three days sensible. In addition, his coat shines incredibly and he has lost all his winter coat.
In short: I am very satisfied with this product! It certainly does what it promises!
Hooves were problematic… Have now given this 3 months and a remarkable improvement! Farrier even was surprised! A beautiful shiny horse with healthy hooves!!!!
My horse has less start-up problems. She is loose in het body from the start. I definitely keep giving it.
Very good and inexpensive product. You only need very few which makes it very economical and also does its job very well. Horse is more flexible and has less problems with her arthrosis.
This was recommended to me as my horse eats / licks sand. Give this about 2 weeks now and he seems to be doing this a lot less! I also give this because he just had a hoof ulcer to promote the growth of his hooves.
Super enthusiastic about Heltie horse Silicon!!!
I am now almost through the 1st bottle and I see a clear difference. Before I started with Silicon my horse had a dull winter coat, and was slowly shedding. Now his coat is super shiny, and he looks great! I also noticed that his hooves have hardened. I am also sure that it has a positive effect on his joints, but I think that you have to add this for a longer time before you can really see the result, that is why I have already ordered my 2nd bottle!
Super nice is that these supplements are liquid, and therefore easier to be absorbed into the body, you will see results more quickly!
I recommend everyone to order heltie horse products, your horse will thank you;). In any case, I am a fan and hope to test the heltie horse joints and salmon oil soon. ?
I started giving this product to my 2 horses because they both ate sand.
After 4 weeks there is a remarkable difference and I am very pleasantly surprised!
Another positive “side effect” is that I had just bought 1 horse and that it was not yet in his coat. Now he is shedding very well and he shines like a mirror.
In short, I am very satisfied and will order it again.
Better give 10 ml per day and prevent them from eating sand than from getting sand colic!
Too early to assess the effect on the hooves, but the coat of the horses looks fantastic after 3 days, bald spots and flakes disappeared … I’m curious. Eating the product is really no problem for my horse and he’s very picky!
Have been using it for a while now, and I have already noticed a noticeable change in my mare.
The structure of the hoof is much better, this was confirmed by the farrier!
My 21 year old horse was very stiff at the beginning of the training, this got worse by the day. I ordered the product Silicon and Joints from Heltie Horse. In the beginning he was still quite difficult, vet and farrier could not find anything. Continued with the Heltie Horse products and now we are back on the road. They also talked to me for hours on WhatsApp? Thank you for listening and for the good advice and especially the patience with all the questions from me. Excellent products and highly recommended customer service. Top ????
Nice product! I have been using it for a month now and I can already see a clear difference. My horse’s hooves rupture very quickly and there were regular cracks, since I use this product this no longer happens. I am very satisfied. I give it daily through the food, it is easy to dose with the bottle.
After less than 2 months I start to notice that my horse is smoother, starts training more easily and can keep up the training better. I get compliments that he is so beautiful in his hair, he shines like a mirror!
Due to the silicon addition in the product, I notice a clear difference in my horse’s musculoskeletal system. He walks more smoothly, previously suffered quite often from his arthrosis (LV). Use the supplement now for 3 months.
Use it now for more than a year, stopped for the winter, noticed that it started to itch more, so started again, itching quickly became less. Originally started because he had a fungus in one of his hooves. That seems to be gone now, hope it stays away.
I have been silicon for a few weeks since my young Icelanders licked sand. They carefully lick the bottom of their feed bucket empty, so they clearly needed it. The sand licking itself is also almost gone.
An improvement point could be the dosing bottle. My Icelanders weigh almost 400 and therefore need 8ml per day. The smallest size on the bottle is 10ml so you need an even smaller size.
I have now used up one bottle, it seems that the hooves are already better than they were before. Just ordered a new bottle.
The hoofquality is improved. The hooves are harder.
Our 18 year old mare turned out to have a hoof fracture. The vet said it looked bad and wondered if this could still heal. We looked for means that could support her recovery and ended up with Heltie silicon. The last three months she was given this supplement daily and yes, the last xrays showed that her hoof has healed. Thank you Heltie!
I have given my 15 year old mare Heltie Silicon in combination with Heltie Cannabidol since 1.5 months because she was a bit stiff with riding and stressed.
She really walks much smoother and riding so much nicer. Can really recommend it to everyone!
I started using Silicon because my ponies ate sand. After about 8 days they never ate sand again. They are also beautiful in their coat and have hard hooves.
I have been using it for almost a year now and am very satisfied with it.
My mare has been getting it to replace another product for several weeks now and she is doing very well. I’m going to order a new one.
For my 17-year-old mare I had been using glucosamine for a long time, after a lot of reading and on the advice of a stable mate I switched to Heltie horse Silicon.
We are now halfway through the 2nd bottle, my horse is clearly more flexible in her body, shines like a mirror. My horse quickly suffers from thrush in his hooves, this has been continuously present for the past 3 years.
After the first bottle, my farrier noticed that the thrush was completely gone! I don’t think this is a coincidence!
I was mainly looking for a different product because I had a hard time getting glucosamine in my horse, she is so picky that when she “thinks” something is in her food she just isn’t eating. With Heltie horse this has never been a problem! So happy horse and happy owner!
We have an older horse. I notice that he stumbled less and walks more easily and is happier.
And our younger horse is growing very much, I also see that it helps him. I am very satisfied with the product, I use it in combo with Heltie Joints.
Great product. My pony has a super nice coat and good hooves. I put it on his grains and he eats it like that.
My 20 year old Arabian thoroughbred mare has been suffering from severe arthrosis for years. I have already used all kinds of supplements, glucosamine, MSM, hyaluronic acid, devil’s claw etc ..
For several months I had already switched to an Omega3 / Turmeric supplement. This had already brought an improvement. Since 2 months the Heltie Horse Silicon has been added and Shakira has started to walk significantly wider in front and behind much less irregularly. She even walks so acceptable again that we have already been to the forest a few times. To her and my pleasure. I hope she can enjoy it for a while. So no pension for her yet. ?
I started using this product because my horse has an injury to his deep flexion tendon due to a nail step. I have been using this product for about 3 months now, noticed after about 1 month that he was much better in his coat! That is a nice side effect. Whether it really works for the injury is of course difficult to judge, but what is striking is that since I give this he has no relapse what was previously the case. I definitely recommend this product!
Good evening . I have been using Silicon for my horse hatchi for 1.5 years. I started because it contains silicon, which is also very good for bones. Since my horse has a slightly crooked cartilage, I am careful with that and I was looking for something that keeps healthy bones healthy and reduces injuries. And it does indeed. My horse is very shiny with beautiful healthy feet and no injuries have not occurred. So I am a very happy customer with a happy horse who will certainly continue to give heltie horse.
Unfortunately I don’t know how to put a picture on this I would have liked to share with you so that you can see with your own eyes that they really get a nice coat.
I have been using silicon 2 weeks now for my 12 year old dogs. Besides a natural product, it is also a very big price difference for Silicon products for dogs and they get the droplets over their food and this is going well. They are running well and in a few weeks I can tell you more about this. Nice that you can also use it for dogs especially oldies.
Horse clearly gets better hooves that grow well.
I feed the supplement last winter as support for a horse wo is barefoot in a hard paddock. Great product!
Have been using this product for a while now and it looks like my horse benefits from it! He shines like a mirror, the hooves are getting harder / better in quality, fuller manes and it also seems to walk a smoother despite its past with hoof inflammation. In short: I am a satisfied customer!
I started to give it to my 25 year old gelding with osteoarthritis and a sensitivity to itching on his skin.
I always gave glucosamine. Heltie horse advised me to lower the dose by half and start with half dose silicon.
My horse trots now easy and smoothly, I also notice that he has almost no start-up problems anymore.
I will continue to give it and hope to get rid of the glucosamine completely.
So very happy with this product and good service from Heltie horse.
We are now using this product almost three months for 4 horses / ponies mainly for the silicon.
It is very pleasant to use. We have 1 very picky mare among them, but she also has no problem at all. We already think that we can notice improvement of the hooves.
But we quickly noticed that the coat feels very smooth and soft, and shines very nicely. The product is highly recommended!
Since 2 months it has been using the silicon for my pony. He has always suffered from crumbles and we used biotin for that. Unfortunately, this did not have the desired result and we continued to search. Until we came to the mineral silicon, what a top product! My pony has beautiful hooves again !!
Our pony gets the silicon product of heltie horse for about 1 month. Not specifically for the hooves and coat, but for the silicon contained in the product.
He was stiff and even cripple when starting riding. After 2 weeks this was much less, and now he trots smoothly from the start and is no longer cripple.
We are very happy with the silicon product of Heltie horse, in fact we received a compliment from the instructor that the pony was beautiful in the coat.
I am glad that I came across your ad on facebook and researched the effect of silicon. I hope that this written experience will allow more ponies and horses to do so.
