My son is allergic to horses and I teach lessons...just my luck. Anyway, he takes Zyrtec and Singulair which seems to keep it at bay. If he were older we may try decensitizing injections. Good luck!

I'm terribly allergic to horses, but a few years ago I found out there is a breed of horse the is hypoallergenic! People allergic to horses don't have reactions to Bashkir Curly Horses. I have 3: http://www.curlyfarm.com

I am anaphylactic to horses and the desentizing shots didnt work for me, I take Zyrtec, I still get hives, short of breath, itchy eyes and runny nose, but I havent had an anaphylactic reaction in 5 years

Have you ever looked at Curly horses? Our daughter is highly allergic to horses, but is crazy about them. She has no reaction to the curly horses. You can check out our website mountaincreekculries.com and also the ICHO website at curlyhorses.org , they have a lot of information regarding the curly horse and allergies. Besides being hpyo-allergenic, they are very atheletic and a wonderful companion too!

Drop us a line, if you have any ?'s
Thanx, Jeff

I am very allergic to horses. I used to think it was only my hay fever until an allergy test revealed not only was it the seasonal pollens but the actual horse I was riding. Whew....

I am very allergic to horses. My eyes swell and itch and I have trouble breathing and go anaphylactic. I don't care for horses all that much, but I have friends that are crazy about them, and we have horses down the street. I make them take showers and I don't go near the horses, and I haven't had a problem since my first initial reaction.

I found out when I was just 17 that I'm severly allergic to horses. I break out in welt type hives all over (even up on my face). My son wants to take horse riding lessons with his girlfriend and I'm afraid of what will happen to
me if he does. Will it help if he washes his clothes and showers when he gets home? I'm afraid
that even something will be left in the washing
machine that will get on my clothes and start me having hives. Please help me and give me some
advice? I really don't want to break his heart cuz he just loves horses.

I started this thread a looooong time ago and I totally forgot about it! I am glad to see (not really glad, but you know what I mean)that I am not the only person out there that has this allergy. I get the anaphylactic type reaction too! It can be very scary! I have ended up in the Hospital a few times. I now completely avoid them! It cost me a good friend and relationship with a man I adored! It was really sad, but I have moved on. My health is much more important to me! I hope all of you can find a solution. If anyone has a miracle cure I would be very happy to hear about it!

My friend started breeding Curly Missourri Fox Trotters for this reason! THey are VERY rare, have a smooth gait, nice disposition and most importantly do NOT give off the normal dander that allergy sufferers hate!:) I have 2 babies due in March and May of 2009. Both out of very nice boned mares. If you want more info email me at montesbugsalive@hotmail.com.

first time i went riding i wound up getting two adrenaline shots and drops to shrink my eyes so that they would fit back in the sockets. needless to say, i will never be a cowboy!

haven't kicked the allergy, but benadryl helps if i get too close.

probably best to avoid them. if you live in the city should be fairly easy.
