Supports deep, dark shine

  • 1,450 mg of omega 3 fatty acids for healthy skin & a shiny coat
  • Paprika & nutmeg for a dark, rich coat color
SmartDark & Handsome is now being offered in an updated formula at a new low price! The new formula provides the same key ingredients for a deep, rich coat color and more than double the amount of omega 3 fatty acids from flaxseed for healthy skin and a shiny coat. Best of all, it offers all of that great support for helping your horse maintain his dark coat color at an even better value!
Check out the new SmartDark & Handsome formula

SmartDark & Handsome helps bring out a deep, dark shine in black, bay, and brown coats. This unique formula provides a rich blend of omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil, flaxseed and chia seed, combined with paprika and nutmeg. SmartDark & Handsome is not just for the boys – it’s 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.  

Have a horse of a different color? We recommend SmartShine Ultra.

    SmartDark & Handsome® Original is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 286.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I am so happy with this product! Not only were the results quick (within a month), but he hasn't had rainrot since. I have an Arabian gelding, and his coat looks so beautiful, and I am so glad that I haven't had to deal with rainrot. The photo shows before (top) and after (bottom) two months of smartdark & handsome

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shine On the second month of this for my gelding. During the summer he bleached out to a rusty color. He started getting liver colored dark spots on his belly and it seems his muzzle/face is getting darker. He is a dark chestnut quarter horse. hoping to see more results as time goes on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable results Other riders stopped me and told me how great my horse looked. The asked what I was using and plan to order ASAP and this was after one month.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good stuff, But Mare Dislikes It I bought this as a replacement for my ususal darkening supplement, and it worked great, but after a while my mare would let the last of her grain and the Dark & Handsome in the bottom of her feed pan. She just does not like it's taste, or possible it's texture. Don't understand why, as she will lick the pan when given the "other" brand and the ingredients are pretty similar.
