    Magnesium 5,000 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 247.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cost Effective Way to Buy High Quality Magnesium I have a mare who had suffered several severe physical traumas before she came to me. She was a physical and mental wreck which made her perpetually tense and nervous. She was hyper alert and would spin out of control if upset. Even after a year of dealing with the physical issues and avoiding anything that might set her off, the mare was still hyper alert and hyper reactive. Her condition fit the description of a magnesium deficient horse. The magnesium didn't solve all the problems, but it certainly tipped the balance enough to get the horse back into work and starting to lead a normal life. Unfortunately, not all magnesium supplements are created equal. Many simply don't work. The one we were using at my barn worked really well but was very expensive. I was wary about changing brands ("If it ain't broke, don't fix it.") but when I couldn't get the usual brand, I tried a month's supply of MVP. It actually worked even better than the previous brand and at half the price. In fact, the MVP worked so well, we thought that the mare didn't need the magnesium any more. Not true. When we tried to titrate her off of it, she started to revert to her tense and reactive state. When we resumed the normal dose, she returned to being her new normal of relaxed compliance. Note: The mare remains a strong, keen, competitive horse with the magnesium. It's not going to turn her into an old school horse. But it does keep her sane and happy to do her job which is exactly what I was looking for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great magnesium supplement! My TB gelding is very, very picky, and at first, he turned up his nose at these pellets. But after cutting the dosage in half for a few days and gradually working up to a full dose, he now happily scarfs them down. He's had some muscle soreness and having hay and pasture tested, we've found his diet is likely deficient in magnesium. Since starting him on the MVP Magnesium 5000 pellets, his hoof and hair quality have really improved, and his muscle soreness has dissipated, as well. This is a great product backed by the NASC seal, so you can rest easy knowing you're getting a high-quality supplement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed supplement We had our soil tested and found that, among other things, our hay was lacking magnesium. We discussed the situation with our vet. This supplement has helped complete the horses' diet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results! I have used Magnesium 5000 on several nervous/spooky/flighty horses with great success. I have tried pretty much every calming supplement out there and have had the best results by far with Magnesium 5000.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't tell a difference yet I have been using this product for almost 2 months now. Haven't noticed a huge difference yet. So I am going to give it another month or so before I make a decision so that it will be fair. I have noticed she is gaining some weight, but I also recently switched over to a different grain, so hard to tell which one did that. She is a little calmer now, but still a little moody. I did notice she was calmer on the trail though. When winter hits I will be able to tell a lot more, since she is usually a pacer in her stall. But she still paces in her paddock. Again, I want to give it more time before I decide for sure.

I have a 13 year old Quarab (grade) that tends to be a little "hot" and I just moved her to a new barn / new location and needed something to help "settle her down" so she could adjust to her new surroundings.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Assuming it works My horse doesn't like the taste at all, but she's been eating it sometimes. She's really hot normally and we still have some issues, but she listens a lot better now. She actually let me carry the American flag off of her at a huge rodeo and listened very well and went in the alley fine. She works better warming up as well, but I have not witnessed a miracle in her anxious personality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and a good price I love this stuff! I use the magnesium 5000 for when I go to to shows. It works really well for a nervous horse. Brings them down to a calmer state with more focuse and won't effect your horses drug test for the show.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calms my horse with ulcers My horse is a TB with ulcers. He used to be nervous, get upset over any change. If the other horses were not in sight he would become so upset he wouldn't pay attention to me and becoming a little dangerous. I did some research and read that if a horse has a magnesium deficiency that is the way they can behave. I started him on Magnesium 5000. It took about 10 to 14 days for me to notice a difference. And WOW what a difference, He has been on Magnesium no for the past 2-3 months and is calm, I no longer worry if he will move quick and knock me down because he's upset about something. He's not a plug act normal in every way just not a nut anymore. Wish I knew about Magnesium before he may not have ulcers now?.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to feed I have been using this for about a year, for my horse who has Shivers. It seems to take the edge off whatever he chooses to stress over-such as, a farrier hot shoeing another horse or pulling out an electrical cord. I have found stress negatively effects Shivers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and affordable Have been using this product for almost a year. Effective; takes the reactive edge off while allowing the horses to remain alert and responsive. Affordable, too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps muscle tone and just enough calming factor I bought this for 3 of my 4 guys that all had a little bit of a spooky nature - one too dependent on others, one high strung when solo, and the other after being off almost 1 1/2 years before I got him spooked at a lot! The later also had muscle atrophy from a neck injury. After a month on the magnesium they are calmer, and it seems to have improved their muscle definition. I have one guy I am hesitant to try this on since I don't want him any calmer but will wait and see how things go with the others and may also put him on it too for his muscles for recovery since I ride him the most.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product My 1/2 Arabian 1/2 Paint gelding is overly alert & spooks at his own tail. After having been on Mag 5,000 for about a month, there have been positive results. He is much more relaxed and even seems to enjoy getting groomed now. I mix the pellets with a little oats in his feed pan. He eats every last drop. No waste. I have read other reviews about horses not getting ticks while taking this. So far, I've found only 1 tick on him. So, that is another great benefit. I highly recommend anyone to give Mag 5,000 a try.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't work for my horses, but...... Wasn't sure how to rate this as it didn't work for my 2 horses, but I think it's just my horses! Guess I just want to convey, that like everything in life, there's no guarantee! Bought it primarily for my mare who has the "fake spook", then run like crazy thing down pat! Also tried it with my quieter gelding who has a worried mind and anticipates a lot of things, like lead changes. His mind gets in the way! Didn't work with him either. Both horses have been on double dose (2 scoops per day) for 6 weeks. Will go a full 2 months. If nothing after 2 months, will abandon! However, I do believe this is a very helpful product for many horses. The price is great and my horses ate it with no problem whatsoever!
