Supports deep, dark shine

  • Provides 3,600 mg of omega 3 fatty acids for healthy skin and a shiny coat
  • Also contains paprika, which is known for its ability to support deep, rich coat color
SmartDark & Handsome helps bring out a deep, dark shine in black, bay, and brown coats. This unique formula provides a targeted combination of ingredients specifically designed to help horses maintain their most beautiful coat color. Flaxseed serves as a high-quality source of omega 3 fatty acids, which support healthy skin and a shiny coat. Paprika, a spice rich in beta carotene and other antioxidants, supports a deep, rich coat color. Finally, 5 mg of biotin and minerals such as copper and zinc support a healthy, resilient haircoat. Plus, it contains fenugreek for a delicious flavor and aroma your horse will love! SmartDark & Handsome is ideal for horses with black or dark bay coats, but may also be helpful for any horse that has a coat prone to sun bleaching. It isn’t just for the boys, either – SmartDark & Handsome is great for mares, too. (We just couldn’t resist the name!)

Note for Competitive Riders: This product contains paprika, which may contain trace amounts of Capsaicin.

    SmartDark & Handsome® is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 296.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is Good Stuff! I just started my guy back on this about 1 month ago, before he started to shed. He's now shedding out a nice dark golden Palomino color. Here's what he looked like Last year on it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from SHINE Had my horse on this for a month. I was able to trick him to eat it for the first three weeks and cold notice a difference in his coat. 4th week he stopped eating it all together. Would say it is not picky horse approved but does produce great results very quickly

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did bring out a color Love smartpaks. Bought this product to try to bring out my dark bays black undertones, but instead it brought out his red!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, not show legal My horse has been on this supplement over a year now. It works great to keep his dark bay coat looking dark and shiny, even when body clipped. He will still bleach if I put him out in the summer without a UV protected fly sheet. My main complaint is that this supplement has cayenne pepper in it, which contains capsaicin, and capsaicin is a banned substance. I have to dump out the smartpaks for 10 days prior to and during each rated show. When I start showing more often, I’ll probably take my horse off of this supplement.
