Calm & Collected (formerly Confidence Plus)
I purchased this supplement for my thoroughbred gelding who has been on stall rest for 6 months. He was having temper tantrums and not being cooperative. He is also a very picky eater, so I am always hesitant to add supplements to his regimen. Within a week of feeding him this supplement, which he ate happily, licking his bowl clean, he settled down both in the stall and when he was walked. This supplement has literally been a lifesaver.

Good idea, unappealing scent
Unfortunately my horse was not interested in eating this. Tried for 1.5 weeks. I am only guessing that it might have been due to the strong scent of valerian root. Seems like a great product based on the ingredients though.

My horse is an extremely picky OTTB and he didn't have any problems eating this. It helps take the edge off and allows him to focus.

My picky horse ate it with no problems and it smelled wonderful. For my high strung, sensitive, and reactive mare it did not work quite as well as RelaxBlend. I've tried several different products and I think one has to try different formulas to find which one works the best for their horse. I saw results with all I have tried...it is just the degree of response that seems different. For now, with her injury I'll stick with RelaxBlend.

My horse won't eat it.
I can't say whether it really works or not, because my horse wouldn't eat this stuff.
It was so bad that he would rather starve than stick his nose in his bucket, he wasn't even touching his grain.
He was only getting 1.5 scoops of it. And 1.5 is a very generous scoop on top of his feed, I can't imagine giving 3 scoops.
I tried mixing in his favorite treats and spices too, even wetting the food didn't help.

This product seemed to help calm my sometimes unconfident 6 year old Tennessee Walker gelding. His "alertness" was often too tuned in to his environment, making it difficult to focus on me, our riding and my ground work requests. In spite of our calm approach and patience, he seemed to be carrying some things from his past history of which we knew little. This products has taken the edge off and helped Max feel more relaxed and better able to fucus.
