    Confidence EQ® is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really works Used this product for a year on my hunter. He can be nervous and suspicious of things in the ring, like the jumps. I put this in his nose 30 minutes before our class and he's so much calmer. Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked for my mare! I am using this for my mare, she is herd bound and after moving her to a new barn I was starting over again with her anxiety being away from the horses, i have been applying this, grooming her: then taking her out and about: she is so much calmer and focused on me than prior to using it, I have had her out for 2 hours within a week,which is a huge advance for her, that took over a month in the past: and her anxiety was higher this time. My only complaint is the cost!!! way too expensive.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not do what it claims Too much of a mess. You will try and use it and as you do, not know what to do with so much gel. I have a hot tb, and it did nothing all the times I have tried it. Total waste of $. She was stressed to the max as normal. I was hopeful but was disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unintended personality change in my gelding I read that the ingredients in this product mimic pheromones given off by lactating mares. I applied it to my anxious, bottom of the herd gelding before doing ground work. Normally he is a little afraid to leave my side when in an indoor setting doing ground work so I wanted to see if this would give him more confidence. I didn't get all the gel in his nostrils, so foolishly wiped the excess on my jacket. He became a little too confident and pushy and wouldn't get his nose off the spot where I wiped the gel. When I tried to push him off he reared. Luckily we got a chain over his nose and another person (who didn't have gel on his jacket!) led him outside. The whole time he was being led he tried to get over to me. Once outside he pulled us over to a couple of geldings in a paddock, who were extremely interested in his nostrils. One of these geldings is dominant. My guy started "grooming" the dominant gelding's face -- something he'd NEVER do with a dominant horse. So, yes, this stuff really seems to work, but may have unintended consequences!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really made a difference with buddy-sour horse! I had to get my guy on a trailer for a barn move, but he's impossible to cross tie and wrap. While I did have to bring his buddies into the barn, he was incredibly calm and stood still for wrapping. He did his usual stubborn crawl onto the trailer, but there was no crying for his friends and he wasn't scared. He was perfectly calm for the entire ride. I think this product really worked.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extra help for problem loaders I bought this product as an alternative to dangerous drugs for helping my anxious horse with trailering. It helps to take the edge off the situation without drugging and dangerous side effects. My trainer uses it for her horse when showing because it isn't illegal. Not a magic bullet for good training but it does help in stressful situations.
    Date published: 2016-09-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great training aid I've used Confidence for a while for my two sometimes frisky horses. It must be used as directed and does not guarantee a placid horse but it does take the edge off. If you use it in a difficult situation multiple times in a fairly short time period, the horses become acclimated to the activity and are much calmer. They are not drugged - it just gives them peace of mind (or something like that).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse is no longer dripping with sweat My horse has an issue with trailering - he will get on and stand calmly, but by the time you drive even 5 minutes, he is literally dripping with sweat. I tried this product to see if it would help him out. If I give it to him a full 30 mins before attempting to load, he walks right on the first try and isn't sweaty at all after driving over an hour away. I use a full packet each time he trailers. It works wonders for my baby. Thank you!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work! I tried this on my barrel horse before he made a run, and it did not affect him one bit. Not near strong enough for a truly high energy/anxious horse
    Date published: 2016-07-31
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Calming OTTB We have an OTTB and he wasn't the at best loading. Used this 30 minutes before loading and he was great. It was a great way to calm him down and show him it was ok. He is better at it now. He could be very peeky at shows. We used it once to get him around the ring at school. After that, he was very relaxed. It was easy to apply.
    Date published: 2016-07-22
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for my sensitive appy I have an app cross who can get a little wound up before shows. Esp if he's leaving his buddies. This has been helpful. It by no means cures his behavior but it has made it much more manageable.
    Date published: 2016-07-05
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but beware when it wears off! I used this on my 12 year old gelding who gets very nervous and anxious about trailering. I followed the directions, gave it to him and left the barn so he'd chill alone. Loaded him right up, drove for thirty minutes to the meet, and he was amazing. I was sold! Tacked him up and went out. Perfect. About ten minutes into the ride he became a crazy, unmanageable, wild animal. It was almost like I took a blindfold off of him and he freaked out, not knowing where he was. (We ride at the same place twice a week.) He was so out of control that I had to dismount and lead him back to the trailer. He NEVER acts like that! The total time from administration to freak out was about an hour and a half. So, yes, it works. But watch your time and be aware when it wears off. I won't use it again in that situation, but I will try it again on my youngster when I take her away from her buddies. I used it once, but didn't notice a significant difference.

    Date published: 2016-04-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Impressed! I've had this for a few months now and have used it a few times and felt the results were good, but yesterday was the true test. Our first dressage show of the season happened to fall on a day where there were 20+ mph winds. My typically spooky, reactive OTTB mare was cool as a cucumber, even when I was not. Standards were falling around us in the warm up, trash cans were blowing over and trash was being blown around us, she never noticed. In the middle of our test a gust of wind blew the indoor gate INTO us and although she got tense, there was not the explosive blow up I had anticipated. She cantered right by the judges table with the large barn door banging behind them with out a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calms my gelding in new environments My gelding can get a bit high strung in new environments, especially if he is not with his buddies. Confidence EQ has worked wonders for us. He is not sedated or lethargic, just calm and confident in a new situation. It is a bit expensive, but I found it well worth the price.
    Date published: 2016-03-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from prior planning & positive results Overall, I like the effect of Confidence EQ on my horses' mood. It did not "knock him out," or sedate him, it simply "mellowed" him. It's rather hard to describe, really. The product, used as directed, calmed my horse's shipping and performance nerves, which is basically anticipation/anxiety about "what's to come" (on a scale of 1-10, 10 being hanging-off-the-rafters-by-his-teeth-to-escape-being-haltered, and 1 being lying-flat-out-and-snoring, his anticipation/anxiety is about a 5; general avoidance, a little stall walking, and cow-patty poops). After applying Confidence EQ I leave him completely alone for 30 minutes. (I stress that the "alone time" is pretty important. I don't mess about the barn or the trailer or do anything that indicates to him that we're leaving, which triggers his anxiety. After application, I "act" like I'm just feeding breakfast and leaving for the day, and I really do leave the barn for a cup of coffee. If I just bang about the barn being obvious that we're leaving by hitching up the trailer, etc., the results are much less noticeable. I admit this takes some pre-planning and I load the night before, but it's been worth it for my horses' comfort, IMO). When I return from my coffee break, my horse has soft eyes and almost dog-like affection. He loads with a huge sigh (Oh, this? *SIGH* OK.) and tucks right in to his hay. Once at the fixture and before I unload, I re-apply the product and my gelding is good to go. No "crashing" when it wears-off, by the way. Confidence EQ simply stabilizes his mood, keeping him calm and consistent for 2-3 hours, depending on how rigorous our day is. I tried this product on four separate occasions, monitoring my horse closely every time, and then I bought this box. I'm convinced Confidence EQ has a positive effect on my horse.
    Date published: 2015-11-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from really does work My gelding has issues when he encounters new people. He snorts and tries to bolt, even with my farrier who he sees a few times a year. I applied the product as directed and he had his ears up, no snorts. he actually seemed affectionate towards Bill..
    Date published: 2015-09-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confidence Eq has made such a difference for my horse. We use it at the shows (I show in the jumpers). My horse gets really anxious and excited in the warm-up ring and as we go into the show ring and Confidence Eq has made a huge difference and really helps him relax!
    Date published: 2015-09-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Used this for my horse at our last 2 shows. He has never been able to stand still while waiting to enter the arena, he has to pace. After using this, he stood quietly and was relaxed through out our test. Plus, it's legal at shows!
    Date published: 2015-09-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It actually works! I bought this product for my mare that sometimes gets a little nervous at horse shows. I was skeptical , but thought it was worth a shot. I have used it at two shows and have definitely noticed a difference. We show jumpers and she gets anxious when we go into the arena and wait for the whistle. After using Confidence EQ, she quietly walked into the arena, which never happens. She came away from the two shows with 5 blue ribbons :) I really think it took the edge off.
    Date published: 2015-09-03
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Couldn't see results I received this as a gift from a conference trade fair. I didn't see a noticeable difference in my horse's persona. When I used the product it was because my horse was on stall rest and I needed him to chill out. I would recommend SmartCalm Ultra instead.
    Date published: 2015-08-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't believe how well this works! I've used this on two of my horses with amazing results. One is a yearling who is not very confident yet and gets tense and nervous around needles. My vet applied this and waited 20 minutes and my yearling was very mellow and accepting afterwards, fine for his vaccines, I was shocked how well it works. Same goes for my 4 yr old OTTB that is nervous in new places and situations, much more laid back and less reactive after the Confidence EQ. Neither of my horses enjoyed having this stuck up their nose but both were fairly cooperative and didn't mind too much.
