    Leg Up® Metabolic Pellets is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Non-picky horse would not eat! I tried for weeks to get my horse to eat these and she would not have it. She is on many supplements and is not a picky eater so this was surprising. It may be the Cinnamon? .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be helping I started my easy keeper draft cross on these pellets February 2020. He was a size 58" girth and out of work. With spring grass approaching, I was worried about him packing on the weight. For the past month, he has been turned out with a muzzle, but still out of work. Just last night, I tacked him up, and he was back down to a 54" girth. It seems these pellets, in addition to the muzzle, are doing their job and he is leaning out. Can't wait to see how things progress now that he's back into light work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Supplement for the Price I bought this for my mare who is an extremely easy keeper and is heading toward insulin resistance (she is tested annually). This supplement really is a great value for the price. I added this to my mares supplements (she currently gets a flax supplement, a vitamin/mineral, and joint supplement) and shes been doing great this year. I'd recommend this one to a friend, absolutely.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My horse gobbles it up I put my 20 year old horse on them only a month ago so I have not yet noticed if they are working. But he does love the taste of them

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found peace of mind!!! As anyone who owns an "easy keeper" horse knows, it is anything BUT easy! You can do everything right for one horse and it won't be right for the next, so finding the right supplement/food regime is a long and painful battle. My particular mare I've run through the gamut of supplements (anything that promised to ease founder conditions) and she would continue to have problems and even foundered once while on them, but finally this one works for her! Within a week her cresty neck was softer & slimmer, and her ravenous hunger seemed to subside. She has continued to improve and become more "normal" less cranky, less ouchy, less fat! She's now been on it over a year, and I can even turn her out with her buddies without a grazing muzzle!. It works so well I no longer buy special ration balancer. It's made my life (and hers) so much better!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works!! I have super easy keeper That I have always had trouble keeping at ideal weight despite competing in endurance.It seamed that Kowboy would look at food and gain weight! Kowboy foundered last fall . With only twice weekly 1 hour riding , weighing his hay and this supplement he lost not only the 250 lbs but extra 100 lbs over the winter It saved his life

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price My RMH is extremely overweight. We have been slowly but surely getting her weight and fitness level back under control after a tendon blowout 2 years ago. Her weight has always been tough as she is the easiest keeper I've ever had. I think she would gain 20 pounds if she just smelled alfalfa. My husband would like to get back to using her for trail rides, but I want her to get what she needs to ensure her metabolism is working and her weight doesn't become an issue with her tendons again. After trying numerous feeding plans and having the vet check her out CONSTANTLY for her gas and morbid obesity, so far this has worked excellent in relieving her gas and you can't beat the price! We are on a new path with her with this supplement, I will update as the summer goes on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I use this on my Shetland who’s insulin was sky high, she was very overweight and has fat deposits on her neck, this with a diet change has really worked with shedding the extra pounds
