    Recovery EQ Extra Strength is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 60.
    Date published: 2009-08-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever My horse has a broken bone in his fetlock from a unknown injury and the tendons and ligaments were calcifying. Using Recovery EQ HA has brought him back to usable viablity. He is 24 years old and we can still ride him lightly which I believe would not be possible had we not started him on this course of treatment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pete's Recovery Good product, and good service from SmartPak, with ease of ordering and efficient mailing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever I put both my horses on Recovery and let me tell you I would not give them anything else again. My Mare had a real hard time on trails going up and down the hills this gave her more energy, she is 14 and acts like she is 5. The HA really helps her with her age and her hocks. I put my gelding on this for a preventive to keep him in good health.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My mare had a suspensory injury. I began using this product as soon as she was diagnosed. When we went to our first follow up ultrasound they couldn't believe the improvement- there was no evidence of an injury in just 8 weeks. I took her off Recovery EQ Extra Strength because of the cost and vet bills I had incurred. I started her on another "joint/ tendon" supplement that was less expensive. When we went for what should have been our final ulrtrasound another 8 weeks later she had marked swelling again and was off during the lameness exam. The only thing I changed was her supplement. 8 more weeks on it again and we were finally cleared for light work! Expensive but great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from miracle worker My horse was diagnosed with navicular and calcified tendons basically the vet said he was toast! I read about recovery EQ's benfits but I didn't realize how much I have come to rely on it for Blaze's soundness. I did my own trials changing his supplements and this product is the only one where I saw a huge difference. If you have a horse with cronic lameness this product really works! However the taste seems to be the only thing I have to say is not so good its bitter so I mix it in with apple sauce which is the only way he will take it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Okay, it is too soon to declare this stuff a miracle, but after ten days on it, the gelding I stopped riding a year ago because the arthritis in his neck/back got so bad that he could not bend to the right or pick up the right lead, is back under saddle! He feels so good all he will do is canter (on the right lead, even) and buck.I put three horses on it, and even the picky eater cleans his plate.It is very expensive, however. Very. Keeping them on this product may become problematic. Eh, electricity is overrated, isn't it? Maybe I can move into my car.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Product This product has helped my horse. A friend has been using it and referred it to me for my horses joint problems. I think it is a good product for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth workout! I got this as a joint suppliment and it works well that way but I was pleasantly surprised that it made my horse "feel younger" too. He was much happier and moved more fluidly when asked to work!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best joint supplement! My pony at eleven had arthritis in her knee that was causing her to be lame a couple times a week. I used several joint supplements prior to using recovery with limited success. I tried Recovery EQ six years ago and now at eighteen on Recovery HA she's doing excellent!!!! In the last year she was lame ONCE!!!!! Although pretty expensive worth it for the results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recovery works! We recently purchased an event horse for our daugher that had been diagnosed with early stages of sidebone in one foot. He had been on Adaquan and Legend previously and at purchase time, the former owner suggested injections. I did a lot of research as many supplements have ingredients that are banned in USPC and USEA. Recovery has none of these ingredients and also was the top choice in independent tests conducted by Horse Journal.My daugher's horse is sound and no longer needs any other treatment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with results so far. My daughter's horse had surgery on her bowed tendon. We have been giving her recovery EQ since her surgery. She seems to be recovery well. We will know more at her check-up where they will do another ultra sound. She happily eats this in her regular supplements.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally Helped Our mini horse foundered some years ago and we have had to put him on a pain medication in the last few months. Since starting the Recovery EQ the farrier has noticed some improvement in his feet. This is a blessing as it is the first real improvement for him.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Worth Money After reading the wonderful reviews about the "Recovery" product, I purchased this item hoping this would help my mare in some way who suffers from lameness on and off and with a questionable past injury. She is a 17hh draft/cross who will eat anything. The day I received my product I was so excited and sprinkled the "Recovery" on her sweet feed and she would not touch it. I had to sift the Recovery product out of her feed and dump it out - what a waste! I tried giving it to her again the next day and the same thing happened so now I have an expensive product I can't use and my horse will not touch so I have to disagree with the other users of this product. Maybe it would have worked if she had eaten it, but I will never know.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have been using Recoyery EQ HA now for about six months. I cannot say enough good things about it. My horse has many issues in his legs and hooves. Needless to say we have tried a lot of different things. We used to do a lot of injections, we did Adaquan and Legend and nothing has worked like Recovery. I am super happy with the product and plan on using it for a very long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I have had my 21 y/o barrel horse on this product for about a month and a half and have seen significant improvement!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horse would not eat it I love the components of this product, but my horse would not eat it; just blows it off his feed or chases the powder around the bucket. None of the other horses would touch it either, though none are picky eaters. While I do not advocate lots of sugars in the supplements to make them palatable, the Recovery EQ HA might need some help. Have gone back to the Hyla Sport.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, I have a comfortable mover! I have owned a 12 year old Thoroughbred for nearly 3 years now and it's been a struggle to keep him comfortable in his hocks, stifle and back. I have tried a few other very expensive brands of competitors, but never happy enough that the ingredients were doing enough to warrant the price. Recovery EQ HA is the only supplement that has shown a dramatic improvement in his way of going. He's more comfortable jumping as well staying "in frame" on the flat. I haven't even had to inject his hocks or stifle this year, and if Recovery has anything to do with that, then it's worth it to me and my boy. I think it's been the perfect supplement to keep chronic nagging stiffness at bay for us.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best supplement we've used! Our 10 year old QH appendix horse had an awful time with foot problems, and expensive vet inquiries led to a diagnosis of pedal osteitis (cronic bruising and inflammation trapped within the foot), and it was causing the coffin bone to painfully extend downward. It was devestating as he is my daughter's beloved horse. We were preparing for the worst situation but we tried Recovery EQ HA as a last resort after reading all the testimonials on SmartPak. Within 2 weeks, there was a very noticable improvement, and now 3 months later is going going sound and is a happy, healthy, different horse! He is wearing regular shoes; the farrier is amazed. Thank you for offering this product - well worth the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best. In my experience this is the best supplement available for horses with deteriorating joints, tendons and ligaments and I do not ever plan to take my 14-year-old dressage horse off of it. I took him off of it for several months last spring and he began going backward again, after Recovery EQ HA had begun to cure him of a suspensory injury, a swollen tendon sheath and arthritic deterioration in his fetlocks. Once he was back on it for a period of time he began to get better and better and I have now been able to resume doing light dressage and I cantered him for the first time in 18 months. In fact he now rides better than he ever has.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 13 Y/O Mare with Suspensory I have a 13 year old warmblood/TB mare and about 3 years ago she suffered a suspensory tear that was not treated properly and vets told me she would be only a walk/trot trail horse, and that she was fusing. I started her on this supplement about 4 months ago and she couldn't be doing better. She is fully able to W/T/C and her suspensory tear is nearly invisible. She looks and feels as if nothing has ever happened. This supplement is amazing!!
    Date published: 2007-06-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suspensory Damage Recovery EQ HA is a great product! I have an older horse who had his suspensory detach from the bone. I noticed an improvement after about 1 month. The swelling in his leg went down about 95%. He eats it too. No problems with him leaving any behind.
    Date published: 2007-03-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help for a severely lame horse I bought a retired thoroughbred racehorse. He had an old fetlock-ligament injury. The vet said he could be ridden without a problem but would never race again. However, he needed to learn regular horse skills he never got on the track. After three weeks of training his fetlock swelled up so bad he could barely walk. I researched all supplements and Recovery EQ HA had great testimonials on their web site, but SmartPak had the best price! My horse was back to working in 1 week. My horse works 2-4 hours a day now. It's been two months and I can't even tell which leg was injured. He has never looked better. Thanks Recovery EQ HA, you saved my horse's life and we are now riding so much! I read this repairs ligament, tendon and joint damage and based on how he is doing it looks to be true! Again THANKS!
