Not so good:(
I fed this to two young geldings that had started to chew on the wood top rails of the fence. It seemed to work at first, but when they were moved to a spot where there was "new" wood they started right back. So I would say the end result of the two month trial was not good therefore the value rating is also low. I am a breeder of Hanoverian horses and enjoy working with the youngsters. My grown daughters ride - one loves jumping the other dressage. We have been SmartPak customers since the beginning- quite possibly the first in our area. Thank you SmartPak for years of great quality service!

I have 2 confirmed chewers in the barn. Quitt really seems to diminish their appetite for stall walls.

Did not stop my wood chewer!
I got this product in hopes that it would stop my Hanoverian from killing my fences but Quitt did not stop him. Fence is still being chewed like crazy. Maybe this works for some horses but not mine! :(

Works for me!
My mare gets bored and chews the wood in her stall, not a lot- but enough to be an annoyance! I wasn't sure how I felt about this product, but it worked! I started her on this- along with using that cheap spray inside her stall, (and I bought her a lick-it). She hasn't touched the lick-it (I thought this my occupy some of her time), but stopped chewing on the wood! I've used the product for 2 months.

Did not slow my mare down at all. It states that it is guaranteed to stop would chewing in 7 days. At the 7 day mark I put my mare in a stall with wood and this is what it looked like 12 hours later. This WAS a 2x6.

After 6 weeks, we saw no difference in the amount of chewing going on with 2 of our horses. All of our horses get free choice minerals and basically, that's what Quitt is...minerals. Unfortunately this is a much more costly way of giving minerals to horses.
So, if the chewing is from boredom, no amount of extra minerals is going to make a difference!
I was hoping something in Quitt might be lacking in their diets, but, again, it's just minerals.
