Split between two horses
I was interested in supplementing my mare with magnesium as she is on long-term omeperazole for ulcers and studies in humans have shown a decrease in magnesium. When comparing supplements I noticed Ex-Stress had significantly more B vitamins as most of the other supplements and I know B vitamins can help with spookiness, so I had SmartPack split the dose into two and give half to my sometimes spooky gelding. Both horses are doing great on 1/2 dose!

I have an OTTB with severe anxiety. The ExStress is definitely working for him. The biggest drawback is that it has to be given twice a day. I tried doubling it up and giving it once a day but it didn't work for my guy. And he eats absolutely anything so I can't speak as to the palatability of it, but the smell is a little off putting.

I guess I will never know if ExStress works for my horse because he just won't eat it. He's not a picky eater, he used to lick Probios powder off the bottom of his bucket, but he leaves ExStress at the bottom of his bucket with some grain which he never does. The supplement smells strongly of vitamin B so I can't blame him for not liking the taste either. It also stains your bucket, your horse, and your hands. The pellet version is so much more expensive than the powder that I think I will just go with something else all together. I don't want to pay that much more for something that I'm not sure is palatable or will even work!

My horse was very nervous and alert untill I put him on the Ex Stress. He has be able to relax and really focus on working when in the arena.

Great product. Only downside is the strong B vitamin smell. Tried smartcalm but prefer this product - less nervous but not too quiet for upper level dressage work.

Relieves stress of horse & rider
ExStress is a great way to calm the spooky or eager horse without drugging them or worrying about herb balance. We use it on windy days or when the horses are really fresh. Works exceptionally well at new venues when there is so much to see to distract from focusing in competition. Easy directions and effective.
