    SmartCalm® Ultra Pellets is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 1351.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for my nervous horse I had high hopes that this would calm my almost unmanageable gelding when he is separated from any of his barn buddies. Gave just as directed but there was no change

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient to feed. My horse is very fractious and this product has made a huge difference in his demeanor
    Date published: 2017-04-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product! SmartCalm has helped our horse Lyric so much and even more quickly than stated. He was apt to spook and buck in the ring under certain circumstances but hasn't done that at all in the last month. (He's only been on it for 2 months!) so, I highly recommend this product for any horse with any anxiety issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A step up from SmartCalm. I upgraded from SmartCalm which was very effective but I felt she needed a little more help. I have seen a more relaxed mare in the month since I started the Ultra.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Results This is the second winter that I've used the Smart Calm Ultra Pellets. Although it has been a warn winter it still takes the edge off my horse when he has to spend more time in the barn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a recovering injury I bought this for my endurance arab who injured his check ligament and had to be laid up for a while. This supplement helped quite a bit to calm him down and just let him chill. Its not 100%, but nothing other than prescribed sedatives are. My vet was even impressed on my horse's attitude adjustment while on it and has recommended it to other clients

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!! My horse has been having some problems with his vision as he gets older. I've put him on smartcalm ultra. It's done wonders for him. He's still a little spooky. But instead of spooking then having a complete mental breakdown for a hour. He'll spook, snort, and continue about his day. It's really taken him down a few notches. I'm very happy with it. Unfortunately my horse doesn't care for the taste, so I have to mix it in his grain really well. His other SmartPak's he'll eat directly out of my hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse seems much calmer Started this on him 3 or so months ago. He has been much calmer but I don't know if it is the supplement, the weather, or the extra work we've been putting in. We will stop the supplement in a couple of weeks and see if he reverts back to his prior level or anxiety. Hopefully we've helped instill a different behavior pattern.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to help I was skeptical when I purchased smart calm ultra this fall. After 20 days on the supplement I felt a difference in the stallions focus. After 30 days when I pulled him off for a few days there was a huge change he was over reactive. I kept him off and gelded him then played with the supplement 1 week on 1 week off for 3 weeks. He's been gelded almost 2 months now and I can feel he's easier to warm up away from home. Less reactionary to things outside the arena. I would highly recommend. At shows I feed a double dose or am and pm dose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! My pony is a maniac. He was passed around from owner to owner until I bought him because of his behavior. I've made a ton of progress with him, although it really helped to have him on a calming supplement. I tried quietex daily before, and it would work up until he got himself in a tizzy from spooking. Then he wasn't able to calm down after that. There were some days that I'd need to give him a very small amount of Ace just to survive a trail ride. I tried SmartCalm Ultra. i haven't had to give him ace since, and he's been much better on our rides. He still spooks at the same things, but now he's able to calm down and walk up to scary things (like a rock...) and touch it. That method, along with the supplement, has made a huge difference!! He's really a great pony, and he is a lot happier now, too. He feels more relaxed in general, he's much easier to catch now, and is fun to ride!! Much of this can be credited to good training, as well as proper support with SmartCalm Ultra. Thanks Smartpak!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Started my OTTB mare on this a couple months back to ease the transition from a busy boarding stable to home, and saw good results starting about 2-3 weeks into it. She was more able to focus, less reactive, and just overall more pleasant to deal with. I dropped her down to the SmartCalm after a month, which worked great through the fall and early winter while I could still ride 4-6 days/week. I bumped her back up a month ago when I was unable, due to snow, work, indoor availability, etc, to ride more than 3-4 d/w bc she was being cranky, unfocused, and just not fun to get on. Two weeks later, we're doing gymnastics, stretching, working on our transitions, and she's rideable. It's made a world of difference, and I'm so happy I tried it. Thanks Smartpak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speechless This supplement is possibly the best thing that has ever happened to me and my mare. My TB mare was Spooky, reactive, lacked focus, and just overall unhappy. I started her on smartcalm Ultra because of the research I had done on magnesium deficiencies in sport horses and because of the success I've had with all SmartPak products. It was the best choice I've ever made. My mare is happier now that she's ever been. She loves to work and is able to focus and work through "scary" situations. He overall demeanor has changed for the better, and I will never take her off of this supplement. I highly recommend!!
    Date published: 2017-02-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference! We rescued an older OTTB and although she had been ridden in the past, we were finding it hard to even put a blanket on her. She spooked at the slightest noise. After a week of giving her SmartCalm Ultra Pellets, she is much calmer and she stands still while her blanket is put on. She even lifted her legs for the farrier this week! Will continue to add this supplement to her daily regimen.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from You asked for a review. Hard to tell if the product is actually helping this former race horse gelding thoroughbred calm down when he is taken out on the trail. I have been using the product for 2 months and he can still get very reactive and excited. Things have improved but it is hard to tell if that is from consistent work with a good trainer and work on the trail, or if the product itself is producing a calming effect. 2 weeks of rain with unrideable trails and a closed arena have not helped. I plan to give it at least 6 months and evaluate from there.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work plus he rejected the pellets Bought this as part of a SmartPak grouping for my 13 yr old TW gelding. He may be 13, but acts like a 4 yr old. Very athletic, strong-willed and at times "hot". Reno tends to suffer anxiety as well as competitiveness with certain horses. He was quick to spook at times, and it was a challenge keeping his brain focused and on task when on the trail (arena work was never a problem).I decided to try this and see if there'd be any change, but saw little if any. I had also taken him back to extensive ground work and hired a trainer to work with him further. The improvement came with extensive training. We still see the same anxiety/flighty behavior and all around kookiness. Further, he began rejecting the pellets. Had to mix with oats and make a mash. That worked for 2 days until he separated the pellets from the oats. Even mixed in unsweetened applesauce. Big nope. He outright refused to eat them beyond the month he had been.Oh well. Vet recommends I try Divine for the spookiness/intermittent anxiety.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful tool Helps take the edge off. I moved and my mare went from my very quiet private home to a public boarding facility with a lot of activity, traffic, horses, etc. and she was very insecure. This helped her to be a little less reactive.
    Date published: 2017-01-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! I have a TB/Oldenburg mare who got pushed too hard and became fearful of her environment. She was already on Magnesium 5000, but when I went to SmartCalm Ultra I began to see a huge difference in her ability to stop, look, think and focus. Now she explores difficult trail obstacles on her own, she is much happier and more trainable.
