    B-Kalm Paste is rated 4.1923 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves the Day My quarter horse gelding is calm as can be at home, however he gets tense and flighty at shows. We had never tried a calming agent before, however upon talking to a vet about what was legal in the show arena they pointed us toward calmers containing tryptophan. My gelding isn't terribly fond of the flavor, however it works wonders. We have had to go a few shows without the paste due to running out and there was a definite difference in his behavior on the days he doesn't have the calmer. It doesn't completely get rid of his nervousness or behavior, however it takes the edge off and allows both of us to relax and enjoy the show day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! After struggling with my very sensitive mare for the last couple years, I finally decided to try some of this. It's legal in dressage competition and doesn't take as long to work as the other options out there. My mare had scored only 53% on her best day (in the easier test) because of her tension. Today, with B-Kalm on board, she scored an amazing 73% at the harder of her two tests!! She was relaxed, focused, and listening the entire time. She still had a couple of starts at loud noises, but overall she was better able to listen to me and focus on her job. I will be getting more to help her at our shows this summer! :)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I will be trying a different calming paste. I have tried this twice on a nervous pony, and once on 2 other horses, and I did not get the result I was looking for at all. The pony is typically nervous at the in-gate for her classes, and it didn't change anything. away from the in-gate she stood mostly asleep, but was just as nervous in the arena as usual. I have tried half a tube and a whole tube at different shows with no difference. I also tried this on a TB gelding, who had no difference whatsoever, and seemed actually worse than usual. I also tried this on an Appaloosa who isn't bad at shows, just seems to have a little too much energy, and again, no difference at all. I will be trying Perfect Prep Extreme at the next show and see if that makes a difference. I just want them to act a little bit less goofy in the new situations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skeptical no more! I'd never used a calming paste before - I never had much faith that they would work, but in every effort to make sure my mare's first show would be a positive experience, I picked one up. I was really impressed! My horse has her spooky places, and I thought for sure that when they put the judge's huge parasol up that she would have a problem, but she didn't look twice at anything and rather seemed to be really focused and happy to work (and we got the highest scores of the show!). I will definitely pick one up for the next show, but I may use half a tube to see what happens then.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes the edge off This helps my off the track thoroughbred when we go on trail rides. Takes a little of his nervousness off. I keep a supply of them in my tack box!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective product We have given B-Kalm to racehorses before they ship, to take the edge off, and it is highly effective. What I like about this product is, because it is simply L-Tryptophan and nothing else, it is not only a naturally occuring substance but it does not make a horse feel drugged or draggy - therefore, for shipping it is quite safe. Also for helping take the nervous edge when a horse has to be in a new environment. We've given it to stallions who of course can't be aced, and it is helpful for them in certain situations, too. I recommend it.
