    Quiessence is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 600.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think it works! I use Quiessence in my horses that are at risk for laminitis. My farrier recommended milk of magnesium as a source of magnesium for my horses, but I decided Quiessence would be a better option, since it was developed specifically for horses. I can't tell whether it is effective or not, but they do eat it and they haven't had any new laminitic episodes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely works for cresty neck! I started using this product on my gelding three years ago when he was 15. He had developed a large cresty neck and tested positive for insulin resistance. My vet was also concerned he might be pre-Cushing's. We altered his diet to reduce starch/sugars and started him on Quiessence. It made a DRAMATIC difference in his cresty neck. It really shrank it down to the point where it is almost back to normal. My horse was retested twice in the last two years and now results are totally normal for IR, Cushing's, and EMS. I have kept him on 3 scoops a day although he's now starting to look a bit skinny so I may drop to the 2 scoop maintenance dose. I tried this on my TB mare for calming purposes and didn't notice any difference so discontinued use for her.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for my horse I have an 8 year old paint that I do eventing with. He’s young and gets a bit spooky. My equine massage girl reccomended this supplement for my guy to help loosen his stiffness. We’ve never had any issues until I started this supplement. About a month after staring him on a daily dose he started using the jumps as his launching pad and would bolt after. This got so bad that it started shaking my confidence. He was spooking at things he never spooked at before. (My horse has excellent ground manners and I’ve been training him for years, never had any of these issues). It got to the point to where I had to lunge him before I rode just to get the bucks out. After exhausting every effort I started thinking back to what I was doing when this all started and began my process of elimination. I cut out the quiescence and we started having good rides again. I’d give it to him to see what happened and I got crazy city. I have so much of this stuff left over I didn’t want it to go to waste, so I would sporadically use it and every time he would be crazy the next day. So I started researching other options. I found the dac orange superior and he has been an angel. Lots of energy but he isn’t nuts, he comes right back. He is more balanced in his mind. I don’t recommend quiescence after my experience, my horse was out of his mind.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Results My mare was always nervous and spooked at everything. Ellie was on the supplement for a month and I was able to ride her in the Christmas parade in Lawrence, KS with horse drawn carriages and over 10,000 spectators. Ellie was relaxed and performed perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps neck and quieting. This helps my young horse stop storing fat in his neck
    Date published: 2017-11-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work for calming. The first time I used quiessence was to calm my young warmblood mare when started showing her and to help my daughter's pony with her cresty neck that was beginning to form. I feel like it worked very well as a calming supplement. My mare seemed less reactive when on it. The pony's neck never got any thicker, but I'm not sure if that was due to the supplement or the diet plan. Most recently I have started using it on a different young warmblood mare. I'm hoping it will help her to remain calm at her first series of shows. It has also been very palatable. All the horses have eaten it with zero issues.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy I have used this for a month now and it helped my mare and gelding that have had cresty necks and have been pushing around the other horses. Both of the cresty necks have gotten better and their attitudes toward the other horses have improved
    Date published: 2017-09-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for moody mares! Have had both my mares on this product for over 4 years. They are both much more relaxed and laid back while taking this supplement. I started them on it for the purpose of helping to reduce the crests on their necks. It did actually help to do that but their overall well being was improved as well. They are just happier and healthier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works GREAT for a nutty TB!! My OTTB has been on this product about a month and half now, and the difference is wonderful! He's not spooky or hot headed, but when it comes to attention span, he's lacking :) Quiessence seems to do the best and I've tried just about all other top rated items out there!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love it I did not get these to alter behavior. I had read this supplement can help shrink a crested neck. Figured I'd give it a shot and it was SO worth it! Within a week or two his neck looked almost completely normal! Catch is they have to stay on it to keep the results which adds up.
    Date published: 2017-07-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I bought this for my horse because she is very spooky and on edge most of the time. This product helped her calm down just enough without making her to mellow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped to balance and quiet by gelding I purchased for my gelding who the vet thought had EMS or Cushings. He had developed fat pads, long hairs, and was very unpredictable and spooky. This was a total change in behavior. His tests for EMS and Cushings are negative. He has been on this for one month and has totally turned around. We have watched his diet and exercise in addition to adding Quiessence. He is back to his calm self. He is working well in the round pen listening to his cues. It seems to have also balanced his metabolism even beyond his diet and exercise. We have to have the chiropractor check him out before riding, but I cannot wait to ride him. I know he is back to his normal self!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Difference! Although I am not a fan of using supplements to modify behavior, my husbands mare was constantly over reacting to everything around her. In some instances she was borderline dangerous, if you weren't paying attention! Now she seems to be able to "think" before reacting which has made a HUGE difference! This is a great product in my opinion!
    Date published: 2017-07-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more colic My gelding is much calmer because he is not in pain. He seems so much friendlier and pet like.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it works! Mare went off regumate, and have tried this instead. She is still spooky at times, but I think it does help overall.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes the edge off. My high strung, anxious OTTB mare has been on Quiessence for 3 months. She still has her moments but this supplement has definitely taken some of the edge off. Her mood seems more even. I would recommend either this or Easy Mare Gold to riders experiencing the same anxious, unfocused behavior in their horse.
    Date published: 2017-05-24
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No difference after two months My gelding has been on restricted activity for about eight months and has become a bit difficult to handle during hand walks. I added this to his smartpaks after reading all the great reviews. After two months, I've seen no difference. Actually he's a bit worse now, pacing in turnout and has been territorial in his stall. Hoping something else will be effective.
    Date published: 2017-05-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a huge difference! I put my TB mare on this after she tied up and chromium was recommended to help ease muscles. It definitely helped the healing process and made a difference in her personality as well. It took the "nervous edge" off and she's a much happier and more relaxed horse!
    Date published: 2017-05-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am certain this stuff works!! I am a little wary so supplements to help with behavior etc. That said my little gelding has been on it for a few years now ( I can't even remember why we started). Anyway, twice I let him go about a week without it--once I ran out, the second time he got loose and got into it and I was afraid he'd eaten too much..which I learned isn't likely a problem. The first time he nearly took out a horse AND rider in warmup, the second time he bucked me off with no warning. I will never go without it again! And, I might up the dose as he is still often flinchy when brushed. Great stuff!!
    Date published: 2017-04-24
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to use I have been using this for approximately 6 weeks. I'm not sure if it is doing anything. I will use up my 14lb bucket then stop for awhile to see if i can tell a difference.
    Date published: 2017-04-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Less spooky! My gelding is more relaxed, sane, and less tense and spooky since starting Quiessence. Will continue to feed it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A legal calming supplement! This has been a 'go-to' supplement of mine for many years. It is great for mares or geldings that start out a little 'too hot' when riding. It allows relaxation and concentration. Great stuff!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for muscle function Helps "calm" my hot barrel horse. I feed two scoops daily and she loves them. This product has the best value.
