    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product In the show arena my mare would spook at the speakers, the announcers staqnd and even the crowds in the bleachers, since putting her on this she is more cooperative in working on her issues.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from seems ok My mare has only been on this for 2 months, I might have to switch her to the calm ultra. My other mare is on the Calm Ultra and I was already seeing good results by the same time frame. If you have a very high strung horse, I would recommend going up to the Calm Ultra ,, if you have minor issues, then this might help

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as claimed This is the second year my mare has been on Smart Calm. She has a barn phobia from being chased and falling in the barn a few years ago. Another horse stepped on her when she fell, and she was un-rideable for a couple of months until her back healed. She used to come in at dinner time, get a mouthful of grain, then go outside to eat it, and if another horse came in when she was standing inside, she would leave. Smart Calm has helped settle her behavior in the barn, so that she will now come in and take naps in a stall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well. We've been using this product for our rescued thoroughbred for over 2 years now. He had a previous history of somewhat "rough" training, and was very, very skiddish. What a difference this has made. He was so head shy, that you couldn't go anywhere his head, and now we can hug him, and even pull on his ears.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hasn't worked yet! I've been using this supplement for a month now and haven't noticed a bit of difference. Ordered three months worth, so hopefully it will make a difference soon!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Haven't seen much change in the bahavior of my hor My mare has been on this supplement for approximately six weeks. She still remains jumpy has she was without using this supplement. Perhaps this formula isn't what she needs. Will try a different formula. This doesn't mean a different horse may have better results.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to calm I have a TB who gets a little grumpy and sassy when it is cold. I tried this supplement hoping it would take off some of the edge and I would say it seems to be helping!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not help all that much I have used both this and Smart Calm Ultra.  The Smart Calm seems to do much less for our nervous Appendix compared to the Ultra.  I decided to try this after the Ultra formula was changed, as it seemed to make him too calm (lazy when ridden, which is not in his normal character).  The old Ultra was the best for our horse.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not working for us we're almost through 2 months on this supplement and i see no change in Peter's ability to focus, to calm down or spookiness.  we'll try the ultra next and hope it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from calming supplement Started my TB/trakhener gelding on this product about 1 month ago. He is a good boy who can spook a little and gets nervous when asked to learn new things (grinds bit). I have not noticed a DRAMATIC difference BUT he seems to spook a little less and does not seem as nervous about new things added to his training ( learning first level dressage) and does seem to focus better. Will continue on product. He eats the pellets with no problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great results Before I started this product, my Arabian gelding was always reluctant to come to the stall gate to greet me, he would turn his back and walk away. He was also pretty jumpy if you moved too fast around him. Now after a full month on SmartCalm, I have great results. He is not totally over his weariness of daily life (he was a rescue), but he does not act like a ferral cat now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous This product is incredible. After  few days of feeding smart calm to my TB I noticed some changes. The horse is more relaxed, focused and calm! As a consequence he looks like a happier horse than before!
    Date published: 2014-02-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helped a lot. My coming 3 yo gelding has been a handful for a couple of years; rearing, striking, biting, and not wanting to be touched. In doing research, I found that many of these were symptoms of a magnesium deficiency. Thought it couldn't hurt to give it a try. I've had him on SmartCalm for 6 weeks now and he's a different horse. He keeps all four feet on the ground when being led out to pasture, I can groom him without him attempting to bite, and he's overall just a better-natured beast. I'm glad it's helping because I was seriously considering selling before we started this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Three Year Old was so Calm! My horse is 3 and so spirited. I put her on this supplement and suddenly I had a new horse! She was calmer so training got through to her better. I can also ride her bareback now without fearing her taking off like she used to. She was never spooky so I cannot speak for that aspect of it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noticable change Tried the powder at first, but changed to the pellets so it wouldn't get caught in the corners of the feeder/bucket. My horse is more relaxed and thoughtful after two months. He's also on a few other senior supplements, but his body is strong and his mind is over-active. The "calm" seemed to help a lot. Even the morning feeders noticed a change. Thank you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this product! This product works wonders on my mare! Prior to the product she was hot, wouldn't walk, fought the bit....after she walks and is more willing and eager to work. We have happy rides!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed :( I have had my horse on SmartPaks for a while now and everything I have used on him has worked wonderfully, with the exception of this product. I decided to give SmartCalm a try because my gelding gets nervous and excited at shows and unfortunately I didn't see where it helped at all. Also, if you have a picky eater, they may not want to eat it. Being pelleted it is easy for them to pick through and it smells bad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from miracle worker I have an extremely anxious morgan gelding, he windsucks and cribs, can't stand still for anything, and will actually bite himself. after the biting I had it, I compared this, quiessence, and smartcalm ultra. I went with this over quiessence because it contains more than just magnesium, and this over smartcalm ultra because it was cheaper, and ordering it in smartpaks makes it a simple switch. I put him on this and corta-flx at the same time, so either the corta-flx is calming him down or this is! after three days I noticed he stoped biting himself, and a week and a half he stands still in the cross ties. best of all, he's still his sassy self undersaddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No longer "nervy" My little molly mule had become very "odd" - nervous and spooky, which was out of character for her. She had been on Smart Mare Harmony for a couple of years, then we were able to take her off of it, since she had normal cycles and seemed fine. Until the spookiness. After one big bad spook, I did some research and discovered that magnesium might help. It has definitely been helpful! She is back to normal. The other day a cat jumped off of the large hay tarp (it startled me, too), and she only hopped in place - no fear, no running. I also researched brands of magnesium supplements, and I could not find one that topped Smart Calm. It's natural, reasonably priced, and she will eat it. Great product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty sure this is helping The abused rescue colt that is receiving the SmartCalm, is settling down. I believe that the product is working for him, as his temperment is nicer, and he is more attentive. His "spooks" are less often and less severe. I have been able to pick up all four feet on a ground tie, which is wonderful. I couldn't get the hinds up at all a couple weeks ago. So all in all, I am pleased with his progress on the SmartCalm, and will continue with it for a time.The SmartCalm Ultra, worked well on a Haflinger that was in a bad carriage wreck. She became a run-away, and had to be retrained. The SC Ultra, allowed her to relearn and regain her confidence.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Supplement This supplement did wonders! I usually have my mare on mare magic and total calm and focus at shows but ever since putting her on this I only need smart calm.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't See the Results I Expected I bought this in smartpaks for my 10 yr. old TB gelding, in the hopes that it would take the edge off. As a rescue, I know that he is bound to have issues and hang-ups. He is a typical OTTB; a "worrier" and gets anxious very easily. He sweats profusely, even with little exercise, and breathes heavily, especially when working at the canter. He has also had issues with back pain.I wasn't expecting miracles, but I didn't see any change (1.5 mo.). I did notice several new and odd behaviors; however I don't think that SmartCalm caused them. (I will note them anyway for reference.) His "oral fixation" increased from licking metal fences to licking (not biting) people on their face and arms. He would also bite at his knees. At times, he would stand in the corner and toss his head at the wall. Again, I don't think that these behaviors are a result of SmartCalm, but I think that they are worth mentioning.At this point, my vet and I are going through the process of elimination to determine the cause(s) of my horse's strange behavior. I will most likely try something a little stronger and/or a different formula altogether.The smartpaks themselves are a good value, I think, and are certainly much easier to feed. I had no issues with palatibility and I like that they come in a pelleted form.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No noticeable difference I added this product to my horses' Smart Pak to help with muscle soreness/pain relief for arthritis as opposed to the calming. I have not noticed a difference with muscle soreness/pain relief. I may try to stop using it for a while and see if I notice anything.
