SmartSupplements by SmartPak
- Item #18243
Form: Pellets
Maintenance Dose: 2 SmartPak Wells

SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets were designed to support older horses in the 3 areas they need it most – joint health, digestive function and antioxidants for a healthy immune system. This herb-free version of original SmartFlex Senior is ideal for older horses that compete or those with sensitive stomachs, where Devil’s Claw may not be appropriate.

For joint support, SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets provide 8,000 mg of Glucosamine, 700 mg of Chondroitin Sulfate, 75 mg Hyaluronic Acid and 12,000 mg of MSM. This formula also contains 500 mg of the amino acid Phenylalanine to help manage discomfort. To support healthy digestion and weight maintenance, SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets provide Probiotics, Prebiotics and Enzymes. And because senior horses benefit from extra antioxidants, this supplement also contains Vitamin C and the powerful free radical scavenger Super Oxide Dismutase. Your horse will love these tasty pellets!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the packaging Have an IR horse, so like the Herb Free Pellets. Same great product but now getting the bag instead of the plastic trays. I make up food for a week at a time, so lots of plastic that was not needed. Don't know how environmentally friendly that plastic is, but the bag sure makes me feel like I am being more environmentally conscious and I think buying it in bulk is even a bit cheaper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from saved our two 30 year old retirees 2 of my husband's former fox hunters are now over 30. After this winter both were thin, boney and not moving well. My husband said once the spring grass came in they would pick up but he was also thinking they would not last through the summer. My retired show mare is turned out with them. The 30 year old TB is the only horse she has not been able to bully and accept it! If the old guys went my mare would go out with the 2 and 4 year old which would not been good for the Youngsters! I tried Smart pak senior supplement(Herb free) and within a month both horses not only picked up weight, they now trot into the barn at feeding time! In the 5 years I have known them I never saw their coats this shiny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, not just for seniors! I did a test month of this product to see if I could detect a difference in the performance of a horse that has every winter off and comes back to work with some issues every spring. I knew exactly what to expect, and hoped for a different experience with this product, and it delivered!If you're scouring the supplement aisles for a product that won't test, has all the supportive ingredients and a high amount of MSM for inflammation for any reason, this is a great product! They seem to like to eat it, and I did see a real difference with my horse during use. A lot of these products seem to do little or nothing for those "start stiff" "hocks a little puffy" "has off days" or just "is getting a little old" horses, but this one I saw a difference for 4 of the 5 horses I tried it on, which had known issues that could be helped by the ingredients. Thanks again, SmartPak for another great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for Older Horses This is a great product. Palatable to even the pickiest horses and works!! My 28 year old barrel horse needed something to help with the arthritis of age. In the colder months she has a problem walking. I started giving her smart flex herb free and within a month I noticed a difference in her gait and overall happiness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getting Old Gets Easier! My 18 year old Percheron/Quarter, Andre, is the dearest thing in my life and I'm trying to keep him going as long as I can. SO! I called SmartPak and isn't it the most shocking thing when not only a human answers the phone, but they know your name, AND! they can answer questions about the products without passing it on to another person?!Anyway! Andre tends to have a swollen rear fetlock and shank and with a combination of 1/2 of a Previcox pill and the SmartFlex® Senior pellets, his swelling has gone from looking like a sausage, to having very minimal swelling.I'm very thankful for SmartPak for partnering up with me to help my horse to have a long life.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but expensive I can acutally see a difference in my 28 year old arabian mare, but this product is expensive. I think the plastic bucket packaging is too expensive and wasteful when you have to order refills.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rebel had been on another joint supplement, it was running low so i decided to make the switch to senior flex. i must say, i have been plesantly surprised @ the improvement i have seen in his movement, a much smoother ride. he was obviously alot "stiffer" than i realized. he is 23 yrs. old, he thanks me for the "switch" & i am very pleased with the results. the smart pack team is great to work with & very helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent even for the young guys I have my 6yr old 17.2 TB on this and its fantastic. Don't let the name senior fool you. What's better than all the joint ingrediants and probiotics at an awesome price? For all these same ingrediants for the "young horse" you'll pay double! This product works great for my young guy and helps with his digestion too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product love love love this product. Unfortunately, i find it too time consuming to unwrap individual packets and dispose. In the future, i will order product in one large container and scoop out each feeding-much more convenient for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have an older thoroughbred gelding that still competes. After only 28 days he felt better and his coat looked so good. I'm really happy with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Older Horse? Get them on this product! Earlier this year, I won a very generous gift certificate and decided to get my 14-year-old Thoroughbred gelding some Smartpaks. After reading through all of the extensive information on the website, I chose the herb-free Senior Flex pellets. Mr. Picky Eater has a poor history of eating any of my well-intentioned feed additives, so I was skeptical. WOW. He ate it. And he started to come out of his stall and go out with a happy trot away at the paddock gate, rather than the shuffling walk. Things got a bit economically tight this summer and I had to drop his order for a short time....and for the first time, I noticed a huge difference in his stride and stiffness. I knew he was missing the Smartflex. As soon as I could, I re-ordered his Smartpaks, and within 3 weeks he is back to being easier to warmup, less creaky, and livlier in turnout. I am sold on this product for my older horses, and recently put my young horse on it too! This was a good experiment to see if it "really works" and I am happy to report, for my horse's sake, that it does. I've done the research and there is no other supplement with the joint ingredients, in pellet form, that is as economical #and effective# to feed to your horse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product - but horse stopped eating it Bought this for my 17 yr. old morgan who has minor stifle issues on occasion and noticed a great improvement! Unfortunately after a few months he decided he didn't like it (along with the SmartCalm Ultra he was on). A couple of weeks after he stopped eating it I noticed more stifle issues return - it evidently was working way better than I ever anticipated! Very bummed it doesn't also come in powder form - was forced to switch to Cosequin ASU to get him to eat his supplements.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works great! I would recommend this product to any person who has a senior horse...the results are fantastic! Our horses went from "ouch" to "where's the next fence"? One horse is 15 and the other is 21...both are loving their new pain free lives!Empy, NY

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Started a 17 yo tb on regular Sf sr, but changed to herb free. He had been a little neglected before I got him in Feb. He was sluggish, lethargic, but always good natured. He's turned into a real mover. No stiffness or sluggishnes. Thanks smartpak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flex for Seniors Wonderful - my 29 y/o horse is better with this product. The shoer noticed his flexibility and commented about it. He moves well and is not stiff, which was how he was before.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't Go Without I used to have my horse on Total Joint Care and loved the results, but my horse didn't like the powder. After taking Baggio off TJC, he went back to being stiff and uncomfortable. After having a chiropractor out, we found out that he only had 50% range of motion in his neck, which was a result from arthritis in his neck and some other joint issuesA week after of the SmartFlex Senior and 1/4 of Vetri HA, he is a completely different horse. He is no longer stiff to one side in our rides and is moving more forward than ever. I can't imagine not having my horse without it. He is also a very picky eater and licks his feed bowl!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Supplement from SmartPak I decided to put my second horse, Louie, on this supplement after my older horse, Duke, did so well on the SmartFlex Senior Pellets. Louie is 15 years old and comes out pretty stiff some days. I liked that it had HA in it to help with that stiffness. Since putting him on this supplement he has had many more days where he comes out completely sound and requires much less warm up than usual. I have been putting off doing hock injections and after a few months this supplement has helped me put them off even longer. He is doing his lead changes much smoother than he has in a long time and feels great when we jump! Louie is not very picky but he gobbles these up just like he does with every other SmartPak supplement.
