Sample Analysis

Hair Mineral Analysis (HMA) is a laboratory test that measures the mineral content of the hair.  A small sample of hair (one tablespoon) taken from the mane, closest to the horse’s skin, can accurately give an overview of the mineral levels in the body’s tissues and any imbalances, toxins, overloads, deficiencies, and key mineral interrelationships that may need correction, whether they are caused by stress, medication, pollution or feeding.

How to send a sample:

  • Cut the hair as close to the skin as possible. 
  • Length of hair should not exceed 2 inches of the newest growth.
  • Amount of hair needed is approximately one tablespoon
  • Hair should not be sampled from other parts of the body, as it may not reflect an accurate representation of mineral balances.
  • Put the hair sample in its own separate envelope or plastic bag with the horse’s name and your name.
