Senior Flex H/A Pellets
Great for older horse's joints!
I have a 30 year old Pinto gelding. When I got him about 3 years ago, he was underweight, all beat up by other horses, and lame. His teeth were also in horrible shape. I took him to the vet, had his teeth floated, got him wormed, and had him looked over. The vet said that horse is "OLD." But I loved him; he needed me, and I needed him. So I took him home, gave him a name, groceries, and started him on SmartPaks Senior Flex H/A Pellets. I did have the horse chiropractor out a time or two. I do believe the pellets took down the swelling in his leg joints and stopped his limping. He just started feeling better and better. He used to go around the arena with his nose dragging the ground like he had no energy and was just about to fall down. As a matter of fact he did fall down a couple times. One time I was riding him, and one time all I was doing was taking the saddle off. He just fell on his front knees. After giving Rio his SmartPaks, I would say that it was about 2 or 3 months when I really noticed he had some gitty up and go. I took him on a trail ride; he wanted to trot the whole way! He was excited, happy, and looking around. His ears were up, and he just acted like he was having a real good time. He felt good and was back in his element. Thank you SmartPaks for all you have done for my Rio. He would thank you himself if he could!

Not really Impressed
I bought this product mostly because of it's reviews. However, I don't see a difference in my horse at this time. He is still stiff when moving around and is still cracking and creaking in his joints.

My Picky Eater Likes It
For whatever reason, my picky eater stopped eating the SmartFlex Senior (pellets and powder). Luckliy SmartPak to the rescue with the taste samples and Mr. Picky ate these! Wahoo! I'm so happy to have my 30 year old back on a joint supplement and he's shown a peppier step these last few weeks! THANKS!

Best Senior Product out there!
I have a 20 yo Thoroughbred mare that we're schooling 2nd level dressage. We've tried several different supplements, including the Senior Flex without the HA. Wow, what a difference this has made. She regularly acts like she's a 3 yo! She's an energetic and very athletic horse to begin with; however, she would have times that she was stiff ...she's been on this for over a year now and she just keeps getting more fit and feeling half her age.

Pellets are Great Choice
I have been using the Senior Flex in the powder form about a year and a half for my 28 yr half arab mare. She was somehow filtering out the flex and leaving it in her tub. After switching to the pellet form two months ago she is getting all of it and is actually cantering and sometimes giving even a buck or two racing to the pasture in the morning. Happy to have the choice.

I put my 14 yo OTTB on this product because he was starting to seem "creaky" and was no longer responding to his old joint supplement. This has everything I was looking for and was pelleted (he somehow manages to leave powders in his feed dish). After a week I noticed a bit of difference and really started to notice after two weeks because his joints no longer "popped". It's a little more expensive than I was hoping to find, but it works.
