    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jury is still out I am on my second month feeding this to my very nervous appendix quarter horse and the jury is still out as to whether it is helping her or not. Hopefully time will tell because the Lord knows she needs to keep what marbles she has left! ;)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs more tryptophan I use pure tryptophan for myself and wish this contained more, alone it is OK, but I combine with Vision for best results.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I decided to try this after watching the results of another horse. It seems to help my mare focus and calm down faster when she gets excited. When something really grabs her attention her heart beats so hard you can hear it and feel it through the saddle. That still happens but the duration seems to be much shorter and it doesn't seem to escalate as much. Thanks for this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to help my anxious QH I've been using smartpak calming products for several months now, starting first with SmartTranquility and now SmartCalm Ultra. I have to say that I'm very pleased with the SmartCalm Ultra. My anxious quarter horse gelding turns into a spooky monster when the temperatures drop in the fall/winter time. Since he's been on SmartCalm Ultra, he definitely seems to have a better head on his shoulders. While no calming supplement is a cure-all or a replacement for daily work (the best remedy for a spooky horse, I think) I certainly do notice a difference in the ring and even in turnout (not blowing around like a nut anymore) I would recommend this product to anyone with a nervous, anxious or "flighty" horse.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gross I used to use this supplement and had amazing results. I put my horse back on this supplement and she absolutely HATES it. She won't eat it and it's just been wasted money. It seems to have the opposite effect on her due to all of the sugar in it. You can't calm an anxious horse down when you're feeding them a supplement with sugar in it. Wouldn't recommend it or use it again. Definitely a waste of money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from After feeding Smart Calm Ultra to my 16 yr old, well trained mare, I noticed a difference in about 3-4 weeks. She tends to have an inner anxiety and seemed to often have a slightly nervous edge when I would ride. Now, while she still can get that bit of nervousness, it is less often. Over all I feel that she is much more relaxed. Plus she eats the pellets with no problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver supplement SmartCalm is looking to be a lifesaver for me and my highly spooked horse. I haven't used it long but am already seeing some positive effects. He takes new objects/obstacles without wanting to bolt...he still looks intently at the little piece of plastic on the floor, but he doesn't do a side dance now. Very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I have Ben giving this supplement to my 7 year old paint. He has a good mind, but his energy level was thru the roof. He reminded me of a child with ADHD. Since being on this supplement, he is more focused when I work him and while still energetic, I don't feel like I am riding a keg of dynamite

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brand new horse Cicero was edgy, dominate with other horses, not unlike a stallion and overreacting to minor stimuli. Being a quarterhorse type, this did not fit the expectations. His training progressed but was very challenging, kicking and biting at me, rebelling etc. On a hunch, I started him on the supplement before I took him to the stable for the winter. I wasn't able to start riding him immediately but when I went to the stable, I learned they'd turned him out with another gelding and the other horse was the boss! Bingo, I knew I had a solution to the behavior problems. He is now working like any ordinary, decent young horse. I say thank you for the new horse. He's going to the dressage ring this summer. I am so happy!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works great! Dramatic difference this winter in my horse! Very confident and relaxed! A great value for the money. Also muscles stay relaxed which allows much better dressage movement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming My gelding gets excited on the trail when he sees other horses. He snorts and the tail goes up. I started him on the Smartcalm Ultra Pellets a month ago. I immediately saw a calmer horse in the barn and he's much better on the trail. I'll keep in on this supplement but may increase it from the maintenance during this busy fall riding season. It's truly made a difference and he will remain on it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Watch out for adverse reactions! So I bought this supplement before we left to go on a week long trip to the Kentucky horse park, my horse is a very calm relaxed kind of horse but I wanted to give him something to "take the edge off" for while we were on the road. In less than of week of feeding this supplement my horse'ersonality changed dramatically. (Mind you I've had my horse over 10 years) he was a complete handful and borderline dangerous. Running, rearing, slamming himself against the wall in the stall, jittery and spooky under saddle. It was bad and completely out of character for him. Ended up having to call a vet out to give him a shot of a tranquilizer in fears of him hurting himself. Even the vet told me he seemed to be having adverse reactions. So he continued to be this way even after a week of being home and being out in the pasture. So I took him off the supplement and a few days later he was normal again and went to a show the next weekend and was fine. I'm sure this product works great for some horses but if you know your horse is sensitive be cautious of feeding this or give it time to work before you travel to make sure you don't get adverse reactions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didnt think it worked..until I took her off it! I put my OTTB mare on this right around the same time she was prescribed Regumate as well. I didn't think the SmartCalm did much since the Regumate was more potent so I decided to stop the SmartCalm and boy was I in for a surprise! Her focus is so so so much better on this supplement and it takes off the extra edge she has. She hardly spooks at much on the supplement. I'm definitely not taking her off this again!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horse seems much calmer The horse definitely seems calmer. He has been very forward and excitable for years. I just took a trail ride today and he only started to accelerate without direction one time and then responded quickly to a gentle reining and then didn't do it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I was Looking For These pellets keep my 20 yr old gelding relaxed and focused on me. He can be very spooky and reactive over the silliest things. I see a huge change since starting him on SmartCalm Ultra Pellets. He's also very fussy about what he smells in his supplements, but he gobbles these up. I've tried many other similar products and was not impressed with any of them. I would highly recommend this product...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for my guy Used for 6 weeks and my non spooky horse started reacting to sounds and sights that were no issue before. This was the only new factor.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I initially wasn't sure how I felt about calming supplements and whether or not they work. I've had my young gelding on this for about a month and I have noticed he acts less nervous and spooky when I'm riding him. He seems to have a more relaxed temperament so I'll definitely be keeping him on this supplement

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! Maybe too well... I tried this on a horse who was not the hot and nervous type, but he lacked focus and was sometimes over reactive. He became very calm, placid, and his focus was great, but he would lose steam and quit on me during our rides so I had to stop the supplement. My horse needed something less, but if I had one who was hot, nervous, and full of go I would definitely use this one again. I saw results within the first 7 days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I had my horse on this for about a year and a half. She is reactive on the trail and can be unfocused and will get so absorbed in worrying about the boogyman in the bushes that she cannot focus on me at all. So, for the year and a half I had her on it we made great strides had awesome rides and I thought she was over it and the training had taken ahold. So I stopped the supplement. It has been six months. Each ride was getting progressively worse. Wet saddle pads didnt seem to make a difference and she was "looking" for stuff to spook at. She would "check out" and be so consumed with worrying about being scared that she would ignore all the training cues I instilled to get her to self calm (head lower etc) So on Sunday last week I ordered it again. I had a horrible ride on Wednesday. This came in Wednesday afternoon. I gave her a loading dose on Thursday and again today. Took her on a 10 mile ride and she was back to my quiet listening horse that was focused and a joy to ride. We encountered turkeys (lots of turkeys) and deer and she even went up enthusiastically to investigate some very large blow up Halloween decorations. I have my good horse back! I am sold and I will not take her off of this again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable. Have used this for a year for a gelding that is very sensitive to surrounding noises and distracting actions in his environment. Prior to the use of this product he was just not safe enough for me to ride. Now I can comfortably take him just about anywhere. Great product.
