SmartEssentials® Pellets is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horse stopped eating it :( I was excited to add this to part of my horse's diet as a supplement to her essentially hay-only diet, but after a month my horse won't eat it. And this is a mini horse who normally eats anything! All she gets for "grain" is this and a joint supplement and when this is mixed in she won't eat any of it. This product really nicely balanced her diet, but unfortunately it's useless if she won't eat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comprehensive Nutrients for my Mini I have had my rescue miniature horse on SmartEssentials since I adopted him 4 years ago. He doesn't get any grain so I wanted to make sure he was getting all the vitamins, minerals, and omega 3 he needed. His coat is shiny, his hooves have amazing growth, he looks and feels incredible all around, thanks Smartpak!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything they need for a great price! I was looking for a supplement to cover a majority of my horses needs. This does the trick for a great price. Similar to Platinum Performance so a great alternative. Really happy with this supplement!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for an Older Gelding I started on my older gelding on this a few years ago. I wasn't sure if it was really working but after taking him off it for a while, I realized how much it was helping him! He is shiny, great top-line, and doesn't act at all like 25. I love the combo of ingredients for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed back to Essentials After using Essentials for about a year, I changed to another multivitamin supplement for a month (mostly because of price) but after 2 weeks, I could see a noticeable loss of shine and he just wasn't his usual perky self, so switched back to Essentials. He eats the pellets, no problem, and the results are definitely positive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starting to see results! I started my 2 year old gelding on this and his hair coat is showing signs of improvement!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The horse version of gummy bear vitamins I got these to fill any holes in my horse’s diet that he wasn’t getting from his hay or grain. He loves them and never leaves a single pellet behind. His coat and hooves have never looked better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I started my daughter's pony on this 8 weeks ago. She is an easy keeper, and was getting a handful of Ultium grain, uckele basic vitamin powder, and ground flax seed (+hay). I changed her to smart essentials and a handful of hay pellets. She is now moving better than before and is loaded with shiny dappled that I've never before seen on her. I love that this is in pellets and can be fed as is to a horse that does not eat any grain. And less expensive than Platinum Performance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely works for my horse. I've used SmartEssentials Pellets for 6 months and am really happy with the results. Healthy, happy, shiny horse. He shed out earlier than the rest of the horses in our barn, and so far, no hives from summer bugs - so the added Omega 3 is working!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stopped eating it :(( The samples were a success as were the first two shipments but he refused to eat from the third shipment. I do think the pellets had a stronger odor. Maybe a fresh shipment from manufacturer?
