    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been feeding DMG for about 2 months to an older dressage horse. His a heavily muscled horse that has always taken a long time to limber up. I thought perhaps it was lactic acid build up, etc. so I decided to just give DMG a try. It could be the placebo effect, but I think he warms up faster while on this product. He also finds it palatable which is amazing since I tasted it an found it very bitter. I'm going to keep him on it as it isn't expensive and I think it has improved him some.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't know why, but it works This supplement is one that I will never take my horse off of. However, it is probably the supplement that I am least educated about. This sounds bad, but after reading the feedback about this product, I decided to just give it a shot. My horse suffered an intense ligament injury, and after many months of rehab and treatments, she still didn't seem right. She had a lot of swelling in the area and she wasn't quite happy with her job. But, her ultrasounds showed that she was doing fine. After placing her on this supplement, she rarely has swelling near the injury, and her attitude and feeling under saddle has been SO much better. Since being on this supplement she has moved from trotting under tack to being back in full work and jumping. Obviously this progress was due to many factors, but the supplement has provided the additional support she needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Results within 2 weeks My 5yo IDSH mare is in long term rehab for substantial muscle trauma and scarring in her LH biceps/gluteals/quadriceps acquired in a stable accident 2 years ago. She experiences substantial secondary muscle pain in her back and loins due to the way she has been compensating. In order to address the secondary back pain I have added therapies one by one and given each substantial time in order to determine whether they make a difference. Her back remained stiff and tense at w/t/c even with chiropractic work, weekly massage, daily stretching, heat application and seriously lengthy warmups. I added DMG to her supplements early this month and expected very gradual long-term changes, if any, so I was caught off guard when my mare started swinging her back at the walk and rounding comfortably at the trot only 1.5 weeks later. I believe this supplement alone is responsible for her shift from barely tracking up to overtracking by a full hoof print and a half. Thank you to SmartPak for providing a powerful supplement that has very satisfyingly addressed one critical component of my horse's complex recovery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful, but not a cure all I gave this supplement to three of my horses at one time. One of them was a pokey gelding who started smartenergy at the same time. The combination of this supplement and the smartenergy has made a noticeable difference in his stamina and willingness to move freely forward under saddle.We also gave this supplement to an OTTB who is currently not doing under saddle work, but had a tendency to be high and tight, even walking out to the field. On this supplement, you could see him relaxing around his ribcage, just an overall settling of his muscles. He now walks out to the field long and low. I'm curious to see if he is more relaxed under saddle.Finally, we gave the supplement to our uptight, cold-backed, somewhat naughty mare, and it has not helped at all. Apparently, her attitude problem was not because her muscles were tight!Not sure if this is the right supplement for your horse? It's so cheap to try that you can play with it and see if it helps solve your problem without wasting a bunch of money. Because of that, it's definitely worth a try.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fast! After only a month on DMG, my gelding changed DRASTICALLY for the better! He has soreness from overworking his back, and was not able to be ridden for months. However, once he got started on DMG, we were even able to ride in a bareback class! I'm so happy I have my gelding back!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped a lot so far! It only took about a week for me to see a difference with DMG. My horse that I show I see the most improvements in, and while it is very cold up here and we aren't actually showing, we are still training just the same. Even in the cold weather he is much easier to warm up and we can fit more conditioning into each ride. My trainer and my friend both commented on how much muscle he has gained over the past month and he collects up so nicely now. With that comes a bit of friskiness- he just feels good and is showing it! I can make some really tight turns on him now that I couldn't dream of making on him before. I did half a canter pirouette the other day!! The extra muscle will take the pressure off his joints and make him last a whole lot longer because he is 15 now and still completely sound and very athletic. We are hoping to get at least 4 more years of showing 3'6" out of him. At the rate that the DMG is helping, if it can stay like that for 4 more years than it is entirely possible. He was well preserved as a youngster and the whole year before I got him was doing minimal work with a rich guy who wanted him because he looked pretty. The guy couldn't get him to go though so he sold him- talking him way down off his asking price was pretty easy because he didn't really care about money since he had so much. He bought the horse for $150k, He was asking $60k I believe just for a quick sale to a good home, we talked him down to $15k. Talk about a bargain that fell into our lap as a sales horse at my barn. Anyways, DMG is definitely worth a try for the price and I have recommended it to many people. Even though it isn't marketed as a muscle building supplement, it naturally gives you the boost you need to allow them to build more muscle and not get too sore.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Post-injury help? We added this to our horse's grain in the hopes it would help relax the tense muscles caused by compensating for an injury. While we're adding other items, too, and it's difficult to know which one is responsible for his condition, this was one of the few supplement available to assist in muscle comfort.
