Horse Calming Supplements

Tense, edgy, unfocused. If these words describe your horse, a calming supplement may help you have less stress and more fun in the saddle. The supplements in this category are either nutrient-based formulas or herbal formulas. Nutrient-based calming supplements include ingredients like magnesium and vitamin B1 to support proper nervous system function. Herbal calming supplements provide herbs such as valerian, chamomile, and vervain to support a relaxed, balanced temperament. Some of the herbal formulas in this category also include specialized ingredients such as raspberry to help bring mares from moody to mellow. The right calming formula may help your horse feel confident, focused, and at ease so you can relax and enjoy the ride.

Note for Competitive Riders: Some competitive organizations prohibit certain ingredients in this and other product categories.

The Right

The Right

Green Horse
Edgy Eddie

He's occasionally nervous and tense, looking around and fidgeting as you get on. Slightly on edge, he is sometimes unfocused
on the job at hand.


"I establish as much of a routine as possible with my nervous guy. Amazingly, he also seems to like it when I sing to him!"
—Lara, Merchandising


Vitamin B1 plays a key role
in the proper functioning of nerve impulses. Horses deficient in B1 may act nervous and unfocused.
Magnesium, a macro-mineral, supports nerve and muscle function. If there is too little Magnesium in their diet, horses may be tense and nervous.

Red Horse
Wild Willy

He's over-reactive and excitable, dancing in the
aisle and jigging to the ring.
A bundle of nerves and energy, he's always looking for a "monster" to spook at.


"I lead my pony around the ring first. She looks at everything and I see if it's going to be a good day or 'one of those days.'"
—Katie, Finance


Vitamin B1 and Magnesium are essential nutrients that support the normal functioning of the nervous system (see above). Tryptophan, an essential amino acid, supports the production of serotonin,
a hormone that increases feelings of wellbeing and contentment, helping to
calm and soothe.

Purple Horse
Moody Mindy

She's cranky and irritable, kicking out and pinning her ears. Thanks to her roller coaster of mood swings,
you never know which attitude you're going to get.


"I pay attention to whether my sensitive mare actually wants to be groomed. When she's not into it, I respect that and let her be dirty, and she's much happier for it!"
—Jessica, Marketing


Raspberry Leaf is an herb that helps relax and soothe by supporting the regulation of smooth muscle tone in the reproductive and GI tracts.
Chamomile & Passion Flower are herbs that can help rebalance the nervous system and support a
calm disposition.


Meet Trish and Jack


Breed: Thoroughbred
Age: 8
Discipline: Eventing
Owner: Trish MacDonald

My horse Jack was a typical off the track Thoroughbred – tense, nervous and tight-backed. I started him on SmartCalm and noticed a dramatic difference in his behavior. His back was softer and more supple, he didn’t resent grooming and was happier overall. I was still having trouble with his spookiness and general lack of attention, so I switched him to SmartCalm Ultra. Since starting on the supplement, he has been able to concentrate and work through multiple distractions. He’s still a playful Thoroughbred and can be a goofball, but now he’s a trainable goofball!

Why Trish Uses SmartPaks
I love how organized our feed room is now that we use SmartPaks. It takes me much less time to mix grain and supplements than when I was using buckets. There’s no more spilling and forgetting who gets what!
