    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works I have had my horse on this for over a month and have noticed a huge difference in his behavior. Less jumpy, more focused and so much calmer all the way around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartCalm Ultra Pellets We have a 5 year old reining mare that pinned her ears and tried to bite us when we were saddling her. One week on SmartCalm Ultra Pellets and she no longer pinesher ears or tries to bite us. In fact, she is happy to see us and wants to be petted.Amazing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Wonders I was very skeptical about this product but was at the end of my rope and was willing to try anything. My 8 year old Arab gelding had a hard time focusing (a little ADD). I had given up but wanted to try one more time. Both my trainer and I noticed a difference within the first week. Now that he's been on it for over a month I am a convert. He is calm, focused, and doing great. It has worked wonders :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Laser focused but just as strong I ended up getting this after my usually impossible-to-spook mare became spooky and a bit unpredictable this January. I know it was due to the super cold weather and less turnout than usual, but it didn't make riding her any more fun. Since she's been on this, I don't think she's spooked or been naughty once (the spooking would turn into some playing around). That said, she is a very forward minded horse, and I was hopeful this might change that. Nope! She is just as forward as ever, but laser focused on her job.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still waiting I started my horse, Rusty, on the UltraCalm, a month ago. Altho I've noticed a small difference in his jumpiness, I guess I was expecting to see a bit more progress by now. I understand how it works on the seratonin levels in his brain. Ilove the SmartPak products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver! I purchased a 14 yo Paint gelding on or about February 7. I loved everything about this boy except the fact he was so spooky! I wanted him to be ridden in the Go Texan Parade in Conroe on February 22, as well as the Rodeo Houston parade in downtown Houston (MAJOR scary things there!!!). I read the reviews of Ultracalm Pellets on the internet and thought, "Well, it can't hurt". I received the shipment and immediately started giving him the supplement. (Note: He is a big boy, so I gave it to him 2x a day for two weeks. After the parades, I cut it back to 1x a day.) Holy cow, I was riding a different horse!!! He was so good in both parades and we are now working him into our drill (I ride on a rodeo drill team). We're still working on not being so spooky about flags, but this supplement has made a huge difference in this horse's demeanor. I would recommend the supplement to anyone.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was a good try I have a very active mare whose paddock and riding exercise was limited by a very bad winter. I tried the product to see if it would limit her frustration. Frustration remained until weather improved & she got back to normal activity.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No success I have a hot tense mare that I hoped this would work for. She has a ton of try but needs to relax and focus. Sadly this didn't make a difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped calm my horse I have a 10yo warmblood gelding that I ride and compete in dressage. I've had him since he was a yearling and he has always been rather "hot". He's very responsive and reactive and tends to want to spook at everything. While training has helped, my trainer recommended SmartCalm Ultra. I was skeptical but with SmartPaks money back guarantee I figured I had nothing to loose. Within 3 days my horse seemed more relaxed and was able to focus on me and within about 10 days I was convinced it was real and not just coincidence and a few good days. He still will notice things but the big spooks are gone and his whole demeanor is calm and focused. I was convinced I would be sending them back and getting my money back but I was wrong. Thank you SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought my mare sight unseen and as soon as I got her home I noticed she was a bit spooky. Three month later she still had not settled in. I thought after reading about this product that perhaps she had a vitamin deficiency. She has been on smart calm a month and I have noticed a huge improvement. I highly recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works........ I've used this product before and whether it was from stall rest or the winter weather/lack of turn out and it worked. I have two very different OTTB's and both of them have done quite well on Smartcalm. I put them on it again this winter to help with spookiness and there extra energy and once again they both have behaved and seem to be just a tad bit quieter and more focused, I believe it takes the edge off. :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to do the job Loved the original powdered product, the new pelleted form isn't as popular with the gang, some of them leave it behind in their feed but it seems the newly improved formula isn't quite as noticeable and they are getting used to it. I feel it does take the edge off a little.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Effect Didn't last I tried two different horses on this product and at first it worked well on both. The effect did not last though. It was worth trying but after several months I felt like I was wasting money. I read the same thing in several other reviews so I think it is on a horse by horse basis as far as how it will work for you. The price was pretty good and both horses ate it with no problem. It just stopped working for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartCalm We were moving my daughter's horse so he could be closer to her while she's at college. He can be spooky and flighty in and unfamiliar area. i read the reviews and tried Smart Calm and his transition has been great. Thanks for a great product!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to work.. mare won't eat it any more I used to get the powder version of this product which mixed in well with the feed. My mare didn't even know it was there and ate it right up. Over the past several days I've discovered that my mare is leaving both these and the Smart Hoof pellets after eating all of her feed. When I try to hand feed the pellets to her, she makes faces and refuses to eat them. I am hoping to find a replacement product in a powder again, but no luck so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have for the Horse on Stall Rest! I've had previous experience with SmartCalm Ultra Pellets for a mare that I had adopted from a rescue. She came with many issues including explosive and dangerous fear behavior. She was on this supplement for about 6-7 months. It really helped her through the rough spots. Now, she's developed a lot more courage and curiosity and is doing fine without the supplement.As for one of my other thoroughbreds... He had sustained a suspensory injury a couple of years back during his training on the racetrack. He went through many months of rehab including the initial 3 months on complete stall rest with just 10 minutes of hand walking a day. He completely lost his mind during that time. A super fit racehorse does NOT do well on stall rest. It was absolutely heartbreaking for me to see what he was emotionally going through during that time. Also, he had become such a handful to the handlers who needed to hand walk him daily. It took multiple men to control him. He was quite a wreck and definitely wasn't the same horse.After a long rehab with stem cell therapy, he went back into training. After about 9 months, he re-injured the same suspensory, only at a greater magnitude. He is now back on stall rest. This time, however, I've placed him on SmartCalm Ultra Pellets and really hoped that we would have the same success with them that I had experienced with my mare.What an amazing difference from the last time he was injured. We went to visit him after two weeks of being on the supplements and although he'd like to come out of his stall for some play, he's got some peace of mind and appears to be quite content. The ranch reports that he's much better now when they pull him out for his short 10 minute hand walks. I was so relieved and thankful to see that SmartCalm Ultra Pellets are doing their job and giving my beloved racehorse a sense of well-being during this incredibly difficult time for him.Thank you SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product! I started my 18 year old OTTB on this after this winter he started to spook at everything in the indoor ring. Everything was terrifying no matter how many times we rode past. He has always had some spook but he was getting to the point where there was no point in trying to ride through it all. I started him on this supplement and what a difference! It's like he's found his happy place. He still has some spook but has gone back to being able to focus on his work and soon forgets about what he was frightened by in the first place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm starting to see a better mare I no longer feel like my mare is going to blow up every time I rider her. Her anxiety levels are dropping every week. No more running herself silly in the round pen for an hr. I can now lounge her for 5-10 min and ride safely. Her concentration is improving also. I couldn't be happier with this product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had high hopes Had no effect on my TB Gelding. If I didn't know any better, I would say that it made him worse. I think that it is like all supplements - works for some, but not others. It's worth giving it a try......

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed so far! I bought this product 5 weeks ago for my 16 year old spooky Hanoverian, Aethon. He has always been a nervous nelly, and since I moved to a new barn with an indoor, his inattentiveness was becoming unbearable. It took about 2 weeks, but he calmed down tremendously. I'm only giving it 4 stars as it's the dead of winter and I really haven't had enough opportunities to test it completely, but I'm thrilled so far to have a horse that is calmer, willing, and doesn't feel like he wants to explode. Thank you SmartPak.
