    SmartCalm® Pellets is rated 4.2937 out of 5 by 303.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works! I put my 4 year old gelding on this as he had a tendency to be distractible and unfocused during his training sessions. I tried SmartCalm out to see if it would work - not really expecting much of a change. This supplement really does work. It has not taken away any of my horse's personality or energy. He is still playful, loving, and a joy to be around, but he is much more focused during his riding and lunging sessions. I have had people come up to me telling me they didn't believe he was only 4. He is extremely well-adjusted, and I am happy with the progress he has made (I also have a really awesome trainer). I recommend this for anyone looking for something that will take the edge off. I also like the pellets because I know he is eating every last bit (though the powder did smell amazing.. I even wanted to eat it!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Calm lives up to its name My paint gelding is much more pleasant on smartcalm!! I couldn't be happier with this product and now I know what my horse looks like with his ears up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for my mare My 19 yo Quarterhorse mare would spin and rear in the indoor. Not great for an older rider with an old back. She has been on SmartCalm for two years and is much quieter. No more spinning and rearing. She is also a very picky eater, and she accepts the pellets as part of her meal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I tried out Smart Calm to help my Thoroughbred focus and to take the edge off some occasional spookiness. Within days I noticed things that often bothered him (like coming across other horses on our hacks) no longer agitated him and he was much more pleasant to ride. Some ADD behavior still remains and I'll upgrade to SmartCalm Ultra which is more intended for attention issues in our next shipment.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from My horse does well at home,but has proven to not stay calm away from home. It may just be my horse's make up or disposition, but as far as he goes it made no difference at shows. I would recommend this for others simply because it may very well work for them. My horse may just be the exemption. He has been on it for just a few days under 2 months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results I rescued a nervous, 10 year old Arabian mare. She was difficult to handle and very skittish. She had been at pasture for 2 years before I rescued her. Within a week of being on this supplement, her entire demeanor changed to that of a calm horse. She stood quietly in the cross ties and led easily around the stable without spooking. Her training improved as well with no loss of energy. Several people at the barn noticed her improved state of being. I highly recommend this product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No change noticed My young guy is a bit of a worry-wort and nervous-nelly. I was hoping that SmartCalm would help take the edge off and help him focus better, but I've had him on it for 2 months now and noticed no difference in his focus. He did eat it all up at least (he can be picky).It definitely seems to work for some horses, and since it's not expensive it might certainly be worth a try for some folks! Just didn't help my little guy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! My pony is pretty steady but I added it to his routine because its his first season on an equestrian drill team and it has helped his focus in busy environments

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slight results I have a horse who is in rehabilitation from a torn shoulder muscle. Prior to the injury, he was rather spooky, and, now that I'm tack walking him for the rehab, I thought a calming supplement would help. He seemed a little better in the first month, but now is spookier than ever. It's hard to say if it's the months-long confinement with only short walks or if the product didn't work. I am going to try another calming supplement that is more expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This stuff works wonders. My quarter horse had a tragic experience which resulted here to become nervous and antsy. I tryed mare majic and that didn't make to much of a difference but, I switched to smartcalm and saw a huge improvement. I'm very happy with the results of my mare. Riding her has become enjoyable again. Thank you smartpak.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good as SmartCalm Ultra This stuff works! Has helped my mare with separation anxiety as well as a 2 year old who has always been incredibly jumpy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Subtle effect I've been feeding this supplement for 2.5 months so I believe I've seen its full impact. I have noticed a subtle effect in that it's taken the edge off my mare. I am pleased with it. She appears to be as well as she continues to clean up her meals.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from it helps, one way or another It's hard for me to determine whether the improvements are due to the SmartCalm, the confidence it gives ME, or training progress. My instructor suggested at my last lesson that I taper off my use of it, because my mare isn't nearly as spooky as she used to be. I'll probably keep using it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Difference I've been using SmartCalm for a month on my rescued TWH. This guy is a wreck, scared of his own shadow. On SmartCalm, he no longer jiggles or constantly moves while tied or being handled. He is calmer in the pasture, and more interested in people. SmartCalm has changed his life for the better. Hopefully, one day he will be this calm without it. But until then, he's getting a daily dose!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy we tried it ! My horse was always pawing/looking around and slinging food everywhere while eating/and was just VERY impatient -so we tried Smart Calm - within a few days he was totally a different horse- hardly paws at all and keeps his head in his bucket now while eating and stopped being so impatient to the point that I called Smart Pak and asked if he was being drugged that I didn't want to drug him. (They assured me he wasnt being drugged) He just seems to be enjoying life more so we will deffinatley be keeping him on this - a happy horse means a happy rider

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartCalm is a smart purchase! This has really helped my new 5 year old paint gelding relax and be easier to work around. He is a little on the cranky side and flattens his ears and can be very pushy. I really feel that adding SmartCalm to his diet has helped his attitude and made it easier to work with and bond with him.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from love it I just started my OTTB on Smart Clam, I had used some other popular calming supplements but there effects were only worked for a short time. I finally had to put my high-strung OTTB gelding on Smart Clam after a disastrous horse show. He could concentrate at all during the show, and was throwing fits left and right during our second level test. Well Finn has been on Smart Calm for a week and a half and he is like a completely different horse, he is much more calm and focused and freaking out about every little thing like he used to. Plus Finn loves the taste so I know he is eating all of it with no problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy! I recently started my new mare on SmartCalm because she had a little anxiety in the stall at night and was a little sassy when I rode her. Other then that, she is such a sweetie. I started her on SmartCalm a little over a month ago and can honestly already see a big difference. Whenever her pasture buddy would leave to go on a ride she would pace up and down the fence, now she doesn't do that at all. At night too, she would pace and pace in her stall. We tried night turn out, and she ended up jumping the fence to get to her other friend. She is totally calm, with no anxiety now, and she doesn't even look to see if her friend has left the pasture. This product is a great buy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended SmartCalm has really helped my 7 year old thoroughbred gelding. I've had him for about a year and a half and he's always been a bit tense and explosive. Not super hot or forward, but more irritated and behind my leg with a tendency to get grouchy and to have occasional explosions. With the SmartCalm he is actually more forward and relaxed and although he still spooks occasionally, it's a far less dramatic reaction. I tried this for a month, then ran out and about a week after I took him off, his bad attitude returned. Now I've had him back on it for about a month and we are getting along much better again. I highly recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mares are quiet! I put my 2 Thoroughbred mares on this supplement over the winter because they had a lot more stall time than they were used to. I should have started it in the fall because there was a noticible difference. I will keep them on it because it seems to take the edge off of them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Well, Worked Fast I started feeding my OTTB gelding SmartCalm on a Saturday night, and by the following Wednesday morning there was a notable difference. Now that it has been 2 weeks, there is a huge difference.Before SmartCalm, he would come out of his stall very excitable and hopping around after being in all night. Now he flat-foot walks in the morning, and I no longer use a chain over his nose. He is not as mouthy as he was (he used to be so annoying, like dealing with a teething child).He is still quite alert and inquisitive, and by no means dull or lethargic. Still has plenty of pep and stamina when trail riding, maybe even more since he is no longer exhausting himself with stress and worry.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure if its working I started on the calming pellets but not the ultra initially. I noticed a difference in a few days but now after switching to the ultra a month later I can't say its done much difference. For as expensive as it is I can say I'm not getting my money's worth in behavior change.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't make a difference I don't believe these pellets made any difference. My mare still acted the same.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product SmartCalm has worked wonders on my Half Arab mare, Lucy. For a horse that has daily turnout for 6+ hours everyday with other horses since the day she was born and stabled where she can see and touch other horses, I couldn't understand the pacing, weaving, and general antsy behavior in pasture or standing in her pen with food in front of her. SmartCalm has really calmed her down. She is more focused during training and riding. Any time she was off of it she revert back to hot mess. I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with the winter sillys I've use this product during the past three winters to help manage my thoroughbred's "winter sillys". He chills right out within 2 weeks of starting him on it. He is much less reactive and spooky, and more focused. I only put him on it for 3-4 months during the winter, as he is typically fairly chill during the rest of the year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really helped my horses SmartCalm really helps my 2 thoroughbreds to settle. No sedative affect; they still are the same horses. It just takes the edge off, almost makes them seem like they're more comfortable in their own skin. DEFINITELY worth a try for an edgy, jumpy, tense type of horse.
