    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unsuccessful! I have a 7 yr old QH gelding who gets nervous at shows. I wanted to give him something to help him calm down and take the edge off him. Unfortunately, it did not work at all! He still whinnied, looked nervously around the wouldn't stand still. I did try it the day before, however we were at home where he is always calm and quiet. I thought perhaps it dociled him a bit more, but after taking him to the show and having given it to him an hour or more before (which it says 1-2 hrs to kick in) once we got there its like I hadn't even given him anything. I had to try. But, what works for one horse may not always work for another. I will continue to try things on him to see what works for him.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I purchased this paste for my 24 year old gelding. He doesn't like horse shows so I gave it to him on the last show day. worked great 4 him. He behaved and didnt act crazy like before he really stressed me out ! Thanks for this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works a little too well! I bought this paste for a nervous spooky horse. He is 17 Hands and 1400 lbs so I gave him the whole thing. Too much. I should have given him half. It was a scary arena and he was spooking so I gave him all of the paste. He calmed down like an old ranch horse. Since he is a HUS horse, I needed him to still have some energy to do a good looking long trot. That didn't happen. He jogged like a western pleasure horse as calm as can be! I love this stuff but I give him less if he needs it now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Is the Answer! I can't tell you how pleased I am to be able to get on my off-track thoroughbred finally without drama. This calming paste makes all the difference in the world. No more jigging on the trails, head tossing, fly kicking...It is worth the money!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK This product was OK. I did seem to calm my mare down a bit. She was still very excited in the ring but she did seem to be able to concentrate better. I'm going to try a mare calming supplement and see if that has a better effect for my mare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B-Kalm Paste We've been trying different calming supplements that would be approved in competition and B-Kalm worked very well and in the time stated on the product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes the edge off My 9 year old is usually lovely but gets really nervous and hard to handle at shows. I used this product and while it didnt keep him totally quite on the ground, it did take the show nervousness edge off and made him much easier to handle, safer and quieter in the ring. I was nervous about the high dose of this particular product, but my horse was perfectly alert and awake just not insane! He swallowed it without a problem so it must taste OK. You do need to be sure you give the full 2 hours for it to kick in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice for Stressful situations I was worried when I used this that it would make my horse really sleepy and unable to keep up with my riding group.But he did just fine and was calmer and safer for me!It is great if you have a horse that gets overly stressed and hyped up when you go new places or ride with new horses. Also if your going to do a parade

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BKalm Showing can be stressful and some conditions warrant an easy method to quiet a nervous horse. This products takes the edge off and allows competition to continue.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had high hopes This product didn't work for us; my horse is very high strung and is on a daily calmer. We went on a group trail ride and I bought this to help him thru it. I saw no difference, unfortunately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm... My mare was in season and being super hot...I gave this to her and she calmed right down for the duration of the day, without drowsiness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from takes the edge off i have used this product many times. Plainly, given 1 hour before the event, it eliminates "off of the farm" jitters without sleepiness. The horse can focus on his job and less on what's going on around him. The horse is alert and calm, just what everyone wants. I am currently breaking a carriage pony that would get very excited when he would see another horse hitched up. After administering this product, he may perk up his ears at something new or spooky, but given a cue, he's right back to me. I would recommend this product in the situation where ace had been used for the first few outings, and now sleepiness is not desired for true acclimation to "off of the farm" outings. Bring a rag though, because the paste is pink, and the pink slobber can get everywhere!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It helped That is the first time I have tried any that type, I will say it helped. It worked fairly quickly but seemed to have worn off after a couple hours. I would use it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!! I took my 6 yr old mare to our first show this weekend… B-Kalm Paste worked incredibly well. It took the edge off of her nerves and we won 2 classes! My mare was calm, but didn't lose her impulsion. I HIGHLY recommend this product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for the inexperienced horse I had never used a calming paste before with my gelding because he has always been quite, but this year I have started to show a young paint filly who tends to get a little nervous in the ring. I had heard good things about L-tryptophan so I thought I would give the B-Kalm Paste a try. Well, all I can say is that it works. The first time I used it I could really see the difference. She was focused and less tense, without being lazy. The only downfall to this paste is that it is bright pink and will stain if you get it on your clothes, so be careful!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I was a little nervous to try any calming paste/supplement becuase I didn't want my horse to appear "drugged," but this stuff worked great. It's not a miracle cure and we didn't win every class we went in, but he was a lot more focused and calm. I would recommed it to anyone with a nervous horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible This stuff is amazing. My first show with my OTTB, he was bananas even with Quietex. Next time I gave him B-Kalm and he was incredible. We got blues and he was mellow, concentrated and delightful without being drugged up or spacey.
