Ex Stress Pellets
Even though this product seems to advertise itself as a calming type of supplement, when you read the label it says that it only replaces nutrients lost during stressful situations. I decided to try it anyway. Turns out, it actually seems to work really well. It serves to reason that if all the nutrients and vitamin levels in the horse are balanced, then he should be able to remain in balance mentally as well. My gelding is super picky and ate the pellets up no problem.

My horse has major anxiety issues and would worry about the monsters lurking behind every leaf. He is a fantastic mover and really wants to please, so its sad that He hated standing at the crossties. For sure he would not be able to run when the tack trunk came alive and tried to eat him. But 1 month on exstress and he concentrates beautifully under saddle. He almost seems to think before exploding. Of course we have minor outbursts from time to time, but he is enjoyable again.
So glad I found this!

I started to use this product on my very recent OTTB for horse shows and didn't notice a huge difference immediately. So, I changed to the SmartPak SmartCalm Ultra and that is where the difference became apparent. He became very easily agitated and super hyper. He also became very unfocused and even more spooky. So, I quickly stopped using the SmartCalm and returned to thet ExStress. I have noticed a big difference since -- he is a lot calmer and more focused. I swear by it!

Descriptions was deceiving
By the way it was described, ". . . formuila to help your horse handle the stress of travel . . . ", I bought this item in order to calm my horse down. After receiving and reading the back label, turns out it's for replacing lost nutrients from being stressed. I was looking a prevention, this turned out to be an after-the-fact remedy.

Don't wait to try it!
If you have a horse with 'behavioral" issues, this stuff actually helps! Tried everything else on the market even in double dose, and had no effect. My mare freaked even at the sound of velcro or a cheque being torn from the book. Now a solid citizen back to working on flying changes.....< = )

Nice OTTB Supplement
Seems to have taken the edge off, I am only feeding a half of a scoop a day b/c horse is sensitive but seems to be benefiting from Ex Stress - will continue to use:)
