    Recovery EQ is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 170.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I have one horse and one donkey on Recovery EQ and find it makes a big difference to both of them - comfort and mobility!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've had my horse on this for about a month now, and already noticed an improvement. He has some hip and stifle issues, and seems much more comfortable with working now. He is also a very fussy eater and has ate this no problem with his grain since day 1. Only thing is it is expensive to keep a large horse on it, as i have already went threw one container of it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for Navicular I have had my 24 year old mare on this product now for 3 years. She was diagnosed with navicular 5 years ago. I had tried everything from adequan to powder supplements. This is by far the best product for navicular. She has been sound for 2 years! We can go on long trail rides or arena rides with no issues. I would definetly recommend this product for navicular horses.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No noticeable improvements. I was using another joint supplement for years, it seemed to be doing a good job, but I read so many rave reviews about this product, I decided to try it. It is more expensive than advertised if you have a large horse. The scoops increase, plus you have to give loading doses to start out which also adds to the initial cost, then there is the taste factor. It takes a while to get the horse used to the flavor. Mine is known to be picky, but even so, after a month and a half, he still doesn't really like it so I have to add more complete feed to get him to eat it. The results have not been noticeable, he comes out stiff, but works out of it just like he did with the other supplement, but was hoping since I was giving him so much more of the Recovery EQ he would really show a difference, but he was just as good on the old supplement that was only one scoop. I think I will return to the old supplement but double it for a while and see how that goes. It may work for some horses, it just doesn't work for mine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive for big horses I have been using another joint supplement for several years, it is a wonderful supplement, but my horse was still moving stiff after his hock injections, so I decided to try RecoveryEQ as a temporary supplement until my horse gets through his hock issues. My horse has been on this for a month now, but because he is a big guy, 1 scoop is not enough, he needs two scoops in the morning and 2 scoops at night per the manufacturer's instructions based on his body weight. This is for the loading dose of course, but you also have to start slow if you have a picky eater. I have just in the last week started giving him 3 scoops,(1.5 am and pm) and I have to say that I notice a difference with the increased amount. It is very expensive to feed to a large horse, and Smartpak far and away had the best price for it. I am only planning on feeding this for another month and then go back to my other favorite supplement that he was doing so well on.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from This probably isn't that helpful, but my horse has been on this for 2 months starting with the loading doses and Im about to put him onto the maintenance dose. He has pretty bad navicular which includes tendonitis and bursitis. This product hasn't made him sound but honestly I wasn't expecting it to. What I can say is that he is sounder than he was. I cannot say that this was the supplement working its magic because there are other factors involved, but Im inclined to think it helped. He picked at his feed more than he usually would, but did finish every meal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! I have used Recovery EQ three times in the last four years for suspensory injuries in cutting horses. The horses recovery time was less than 60 days in each case with two horses having significant possible career ending tears. All horses are sound and back to their intended use. One mare was still lame after 30 days stall rest and shock therepy. I started the Recovery EQ on her and 8 days later she was sound. She was given the vet clearance 49 days from injury to return to training. Thank you for a great product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good product I put my horse on this about 3 weeks ago and after one and half weeks saw a noticeable improvement in his movement. He is much more fluid and loose. Happy I made the switch. The Horse Journal knows what they are talking about!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from navicular My beautiful PSG level mare has navicular in her R front . After doing tildren, she was sound for about 4 months, then became really lame again. We injected her coffinbone which made her sounder, but still sore when turning sharply to the R. I started to search for some good supplements to help her. After couple of sleepless nights I discovered equi-bone from Animal nutrition and recovery eq. I ordered both of these supplements. My mare is gobbling down both of them with no problem. She is now completely sound and I don't know if this is a recovery eq or equi-bone but I'm keeping her on them both. Just wanted to give a shout out to all horse owners who are a battling with the navicular. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME Supplement for Navicular I used this supplement many years ago when my show gelding was first diagnosed with navicular. I stopped many years ago as I wasn't sure it was helping and the cost. I have been through MANY different high quality supplements and have finally came back to Recovery EQ. I can't believe the difference!! He acts like he is 5 years old. In fact, he feels so good that I need to lounge him sometimes :) He has his ears up and trots and canters around in the pasture. I have showed him all summer and he did great!! I feel like this product has given my horse his life back!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Supplement! I bought this a month ago for my barrel horse Sammy. He was lame at the trot and lope before I tried RecoveryEQ. After the first month he was sound to trot and lope in the arena. Now I have my horse back and I'm happy to ride him again.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horse wouldn't touch it I purchased this for one horse, but had two more that could benefit. None would touch it at all, not in grain, not in grain with molasses, not when hungry. One would even leave his hay if he could smell it mixed in. I am having the best luck with ProMotion EQ.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't do without it! I have a all around pleasure gelding that had an injury in front leg. Many times to the vet, chiropractor and found nothing. Pulled tendon was the thought from everyone. Found this product and thought I needed to try something. My horse has been on this since October 2013 with great improvement soon after. I gave him time off this winter and now show season is just around the corner and he is good as new. Looking forward to showing this year! Thanks Smartpak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works! I have used this previosuly for my older horse who had an intestinal infiltrative (malabsorptive disorder) and he gain 200 pounds. The vets were amazed! I now use this on my appendix gelding, who starts out stiff and balled up (diagnosed as muscle tightness). We noticed a difference in two weeks. He is freely moving forward with no hesitation. I love this product. it is not just a joint supplement. I recommened it for any type of inflammation (soft tissue, muscle, digestive).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product! I bought Recovery EQ shortly after I purchased an 11 yr. old RPSI warmblood mare with a "mystery" lameness. She had clean x-rays and no obvious injuries so I decided to take a chance on her. I immediately enlisted the help of several alternative therapy professionals and put her on this product. I am absolutely convinced that this product has brought tremendous healing to her body and has assisted with how far she's come in just a few months. She still is not 100% yet but she is getting close. I've also changed farriers and found someone who is very knowledgeable and is working on bringing her feet back into balance. She is now trotting and cantering while being free lunged compared to have difficulty walking when I first got her. Thank heavens for SmartPak supplements!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny My 27 yr old Quarter Horse severely injured (tore) ligaments in his hind leg. We did not know if he would even be "pasture sound" again. I chose Recovery EQ as a supplement to aid in his healing. He has done remarkably well. He has regained full use of the leg with just a little hitch when he walks. Now at age 29 he races around the pasture with his buddies!! Because he seemed to be healed, I tried to switch to another joint supplement. He refused to eat it and even stopped eating his feed if it was in there and then he became stiff and painful. I switched back to Recovery EQ and will continue to use it for the rest of his years!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so Impressed I purchased this product to help with maintain my OTB Mare who has some issues and my older QH gelding that was a hunter and now barrel races. The product may have been slightly helpful but didn't seem to do enough to actually make a difference for the cost of the supplement, but some trainers in my barn swear by it. On a good note for a being a powder my horses gobbled it right down like it wasn't even there.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from VERY HAPPY WITH PURCHASE I am using this product on my 22-year-old roping horse and he is doing great. He has not shown any issues with lameness since starting this product and seems to move out much more at ease. Keep in mind he is an older horse, but he is still competing in local rodeos as a heel horse. I am very happy not to have had to retire him yet. Having the product come automatically is a great way to keep regular with the dosing to get the maximum benefit with consistency.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Results I've used this product for about a year. I have tried several other products, but nothing took care of his lamness "chronic limp" except using Bute every time I needed to ride him. Couldn't locate the problem either, not sure if it was his shoulder, or his foot, but I tried Recovery EQ and after just about two weeks I noticed improvement, and after a month there was no limp and he didn't need Bute any more before a ride. We even rode in the Osceola Trail Ride and it worked great! I was foolish to think that he would be fine if I took him off of it, because of the cost (its kinda pricey but SmartPak is the best deal overall), but after just a few weeks being off of it, the limp came back so I immediately put him back on it and won't ever take him off again. He's once again limp free and will stay that way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Joint Supplement Recovery is one of the best joint supplements I have ever used. The extra strength helped heal a suspensory injury. This regular formula maintains my horse's ability to move freely and not be stiff after a long ride. I love this product!
    Date published: 2013-07-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for rehab I began using this supplement on a 19 year old QH that was rehabbing from a chronic hind end suspensory sprain. I feel that it made a difference, especially paired with PentAussie for arthritis. The only thing I dislike about it is the fact that it discolors very quickly, and I'm not sure if that means that the product is comprimised. Also, I can't speak of palatability because my horse will eat anything.
    Date published: 2013-06-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly fast relief My two Tennessee Walking Horses are prone to laminitis and tendonitis. The first time we used Smart Recovery a few years ago, I was amazed how fast-acting it was to relieve pain and heal--after months of pain and inactivity. Previously, Smart Tendon was our daily staple until they needed Smart Recovery--which also contains the ingredients in Smart Tendon, giving us two products in one feeding. But their favorite taste is Herballs. The taste and smell are so pungent that one Herball goes a long way! They can't get enough of these treats.
    Date published: 2013-03-31
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product! We started seeing results in about a week and a steady progression from than on. I would definitely recommend this product for horses recovering from joint issues.
    Date published: 2013-02-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vet recommended An Alternative Therapy Vet recommended Recovery EQ for several of the horses on the farm I manage. One of those horses was my own Saddlebred gelding who suffered from ringbone. He has been on Recovery for about 4 years and is still being ridden at age 33. Another vet just suggested it for a 28 year old TB gelding with dropped suspensories. He's only been getting it for 2 months, but yesterday he cantered to the gate at bringing in time. My horse eats it fine mixed with his grain, but others have left it behind and need more encouragement, which is why I gave only 3 stars for palatability.
    Date published: 2013-02-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate results I saw results within 3 weeks in my mare. She has had joint and tendon issues and this is the first supplement that produced results. It took a few days for her to get used to the taste but now she eats it right up.
    Date published: 2012-11-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product saved my horse. I was at wits end. Thought he had an abscess but he didn't. Then thought he may have nerve damage or arthritis. Limped terribly. Walking on pavement or on gravel was like walking on cut glass. It was terrible. Then I read about Recovery EQ and after about a month we noticed a tremendous difference. He stopped limping and we can walk on pavement but he's still not too crazy about walking on gravel so I try to avoid it when I can. We even went on the Osceola Trail Ride in March for three days and rode for hours and hours.
    Date published: 2012-11-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good My 15 year old TB was just starting to show signs of arthritis and films show very slight changes to his navicular bone and fetlock. Between Natural Balance shoes, Back on Track standing wraps and Recovery EQ, he's showing little to sometimes no signs of unsoundness. It's only been a couple months but the change is noticable so I will continue. He has never been unsound in his dressage career and absolutely loves his job, so I'll keep the Recovery coming if it keeps him feeling good. Also, he has finicky taste when it comes to supplements but he LOVES his Recovery. I scored it average for value just because it is expensive but if it continues to make a difference, well worth it.
