    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Honestly, I like the regular perfect prep better. I did not like having to give him half the dose in the morning and half at night, he did not do as well with it. It is good, but for our show schedule, I like the one time dose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended and I will never go without! ❤❤ I have only used this product once and I will never go without it again. I own a very un-confident arabian gelding who was a bit sheltered most of his life. Needless to say everything has the potential to be a home for the scary invisible ghosties. This paste gave him the focus he needed to not be so ADD and fixated on where the next 'ghost' might pop up. I was completely astonished at just how calm he was, waiting outside the ring for our next class. Never in a million years did I think he would stand like such a saint! This was his second show EVER and we placed First TWICE and we only did 2 classes! I have gone to a show without this paste and let me say my gelding was completely unfocused, hot, and antsy. He did not stand patiently outside the ring nor did he focus on my cues. The difference with this paste is night and day and I will never go without it again. It gave him the positive experience he needed and it will help instill the confidence he needs in himself. I love this stuff! ❤

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from We don't show without it! This is just enough to take the edge off my horses before they go into the show pen. They seem to be more focused and less distracted, and neither one minds the taste.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product! I bought this product for my mare who has seperation anxiety. I used it like the label said and I did see results but think you really do need to use this repeatedly to get the full affects. Would be willing to use again and I am aware that my mare may be just the one that something may not help her!
    Date published: 2014-09-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the trick My mare is dead broke and quiet at home, but becomes anxious and unable to focus at shows. She constantly anticipates, chews and pulls on the bit, and surges into her transitions. I gave her half a tube of this the night before show day per my vet's recommendation, and it made a definite noticeable difference! She was still a little antsy at the walk, but overall she showed better than she ever has and the judges rewarded her for it. It didn't make her lazy or lethargic at all.. it just made her act more like she does when she is at home. Next time I'm going to give this the night before and dose her with the Extreme the morning of, to see if it gives me better results since she was still a little bit antsy. Overall, very satisfied with the product. I do have to note that I also tried it on my 3 year old gelding. It did absolutely nothing for him. However, this was his first time going to a show under saddle and he was extremely tense and nervous. He was basically unrideable, so I didn't end up showing him under saddle. I only gave a half a tube, so the next time I bring him to a show I'll try a whole tube and maybe some extreme in the morning. It should be noted that this isn't a miracle product.. if your horse is being completely explosive, it probably will not help. Only training and experience will help with that! I still give it 5 stars, because it does what it is intended to do.. which is to take the edge off and help the horse focus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Product I love how you can use this for rated shows and it really helps to get your horse to focus and get his or her game face on. It doesn't change a horse's personality and doesn't make them sluggish or dopey, but just take a bit of that nervous edge off. I wish they made Perfect Prep for humans!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really worked! It was recommended by a friend as well as one of my traine because my horse can have some anxiety issues. Reluctantly, I decided to try it and it really worked! I only used 1/2 the dosage but it did the trick. It made training a little easier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great for Separation Anxiety at Shows My daughter's hunter jumper has severe separation anxiety at shows from my horse. I try to stall them separate and not let them see each other. However, that still did not solve his anxiety. I have used the Perfect Prep EQ Extreme before with so so results. I found it thick and my horse didn't like it. The Gold was easy to administer and my horse didn't seem to mind the taste. I gave 1/2 tube to a 1300 lb warmblood the night before competition. Then the other half the morning of the competition. He had no separation anxiety and showed wonderful in their classes. I do believe that there was a comulative effect of using it daily during the 4 day show. The 3rd day, he did not get a dose since they were not showing that day. On the last day, I only gave him 1/2 tube in the morning and it worked just like the other days. I did give the dose 5 hours before their first class.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Change I tried this product when I trailered out to a lesson, but it did nothing to change my horse's behavior. I gave it three hours before we left, since it is supposed to reach peak potential after three hours. I was surprised that it did nothing. My horse is already on SmartCalm Ultra, and that has helped his reactive behavior, but the Perfect Prep Gold on top of that did nothing.
    Date published: 2014-05-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally worth it. Love this Product! I normally use the Perfect Prep Extreme paste however, another member of my barn recommended this and I am so glad I tried it. It worked great on my anxious pony who enjoys the jumpers and normally runs as fast as she can through the course. She also didn't spit any back out. Normally I have to give her a little bit at a time to make sure she actually gets most of it, but she took the Perfect Prep Gold one time. :) Just keep in mind that this product must be given 6 hours prior to your event, and ponies should not get the entire tube. This product does exactly what it is supposed to do!
    Date published: 2014-04-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it for my mare I give it the night before a show or other important ride, like a clinic, and my mare is still herself the next day- a bold, forward jumper who can be fussy with her head/mouth at times- but she also has the capability to relax and stretch into the bridle, accept my leg, etc. when we're warming up after I've given it to her. Even in a distracting environment, or at overnight shows with no turnout. Not sure if it really does have a cumulative effect, or if she just starts to settle & listen better by the 2nd or third day of a show, but that's what happens. I thought it worked better than the couple times I tried the 90 minute version. Plus, this one is tryptophan free and is easier to administer (not as thick, seems to be more patatable).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best This works great.Its easy to give to your horse hold his head up put in corner of mouth and inject and hold mouth closed so they cannot spit out

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No difference observed I have used this perfect prep products on other horses in the past, but have never seen the same results as noticed with other products. My mare did not like the taste of this product AT ALL! The smell was horrible, like a body builders protein shake, can't say I blame the mare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Perfect Prep Gold! I recommend this to anyone who wants a golden attitude at a horse show! I found it works best if I give a whole tube 12 hours before followed by a half a tube the morning of the event. Although, it smells and taste nasty, mixing it with water in your horses favorite feed is the best way to administer this product. Also, I used this product last week and they have came out with a more patable product, which now smells great! I love perfect prep and won't leave to a show without it!
    Date published: 2010-11-11
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Palatability Unfortunately the product smells and must taste terrible. It took three people to attempt to administer this paste. It is also very thick and difficult to squirt into the horse's mouth. If you do attempt to use it, let it soak in warm water for a few minutes before administering it. I can't say if it worked, because most of it ended up on the floor of the stall.
    Date published: 2010-05-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Quite Perfect I bought this to use on my horse that gets extremely tense and nervous at shows. I gave him Perfect Prep Gold the night before and the Perfect Prep EQ Extreme 90 minutes before the class. He still was exptrememly nervous, piaffing and passaging in warm-up (one of his reactions to nerves), and also trying to during his dressage test. However, I gave him another dose of each the next day and he was fantastic in the warm-up. He still got very tense in the latter half of the test, but progress is being made! On the third day (another dose of each) he was even better. It seemed to have a cumulative effect. Don't wear light colors when giving it in case some drips out as it is dark greenish black.
