    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It worked! I used this on my gelding that gets excited in situations where there are a lot of things going on.He was able to relax and I got to enjoy not having to fight him to keep him focused.If you keep it at room temperature it is fairly easy to administer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real game changer! Just bought 4 more tubes! I have never written a review before for anything...ever, but for this stuff, I feel I must!! I bought a tube for my daughter's pony, who is excellent at home, but very anxious at shows. She gets very insecure and calls to her barn-mates if they're not in the ring with her. We tried it yesterday, and she acted as calm as she does at home. She was focused and unconcerned about where her friends were, and they placed very well, much better than last month!!! I just ordered 4 more tubes. This stuff does what it's supposed to...it totally took the edge off, and made for a really calm day at the show.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work well I bought this to try on my mare who is extremely high energy and can get a little difficult to control at shows. I gave it to her (although there was quite a bit of paste in the tube, so I'm not sure how much she actually got as she spit some out and it got a little messy.) it definitely took the edge off of her but did not affect her performance at all. She was very calm and collected (which is great considering it was our first dressage show) and although the nervousness was gone, her impulsion was still there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Prep EQ Extreme My horse trains like a Champ, but take her to the show ring, and well, Who Are You?? Crazy, bucking, distracted, after all our work? Perfect Prep is a game changer. We tried it for the last show and not only got 2 first place's, but high score of the show! Love this product and won't show without it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well! I used this on my Morgan mare at the last two schooling shows we attended. She tends to get nervous and tense at shows since she is still young and learning! I gave her only half the recommended dose at each show and definitely saw an improvement in her ability to relax! I haven't done the research to see if the ingredients are actually "show safe," but I do plan on using this a few more times at schooling shows to try and teach my mare that it's okay to relax!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money After reading the other reviews, I had great expectations for this product. My daughter's horse gets very antsy when shown indoors. This past weekend we showed, I have him the full tube, throughout the day he was uptight, head up, unable to focus and relax.Don't waste your money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from used this on my barrel horse who is 15 and gets extremely antsy and like to take control once we get out there to do our pattern. He was still very forward but this product totally took the edge off and kept him paying attention to me during our run.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work I have a 3 year old Shire filly who, after a very bad experience with a farrier, has severe anxiety over having her feet done. I read great reviews & at $20/tube I had high hopes. I followed the instructions, gave her the whole tube & hoped to see a noticeable change in her behavior when our new farrier arrived. I didn't see a change, she was still very skittish & flighty.The tube is way too big & the plunger too hard to depress. I'm 5'6" but my horse is well over 17hh & though she's easy to "tube" this was next to impossible because I couldn't grasp the tube in any way where I could squeeze to give it to her. Had to have someone hold her head so I could handle the tube with both hands.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from actually worked I didn't think this product would work so I tried it one am before a show and I really didn't see a difference. I don't think I gave it enough time as the show was very ahead of schedule, so I triend it the next show. What a difference it made. I had a hard time keeping him moving on the lunge line. I didn't take his nervousness completly away but it sure did help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great! I took my new horse on a trail ride off property for the first time, and he can be a little nervous and spooky. Our ride was perfect! He was very relaxed and even when the horse in our company spooked a few times, he stayed calm. We walked by some "scary" things like guard rails, passing cars, signs, ravines, etc. and he didn't even bat an eye and when we trotted, he still had plenty of pep to his step. I definitely feel this product worked very well for him and gave us both a relaxing first ride out and about. My horse wasn't happy after we gave him the prep, I don't think he liked the taste very much. He was fussy in his stall, but he calmed down after about 15 minutes. I will definitely use this product again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Juice! The Throughbred side comes out of my 14 y/o WB/TB gelding when we go to a horse show. My trainer introduced me to this magical "happy juice" at one of our first shows this spring at a new, scary barn. He came out running down the lines in the warm up ring, then bucking and whinnying on the lounge line, but within an hour of giving him Perfect Prep, his head was down and he was loping around the hunter ring like a champ. Won't do a horse show without it any more!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from took the edge off I bought this to try on my ottb 8 y/o mare. I used a half of a tube each day of the show. Even at half a tube it seemed to take the edge off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for us! I gave this to my OTTB when I took him to school at a local show. He can be a tad spooky in new places but is overall a good boy. This product seemed to take the edge off and I was able to focus him faster than normal. I wouldn't expect it to make a "hot" horse calm but it definitely helped my horse to take a deep breathe and focus. He didn't care for the taste but he is super picky.
