What is the best use for Witch Hazel for my horse?

Witch Hazel is often used to dilute other products and can be used as a mild leg brace. If I have a horse that has sensitive skin I mix 1/3 alcohol, 1/3 witch hazel and 1/3 Choate’s. I also make a leg brace with combining the same but instead of Choate’s I use Vita Oil.
