    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy We have a young horse in training and wanted to give her every opportunity to realize her full potential. And with the extra stress of training, we decided not to leave nutrition to chance, so we put her on the SmartFlex Pellets. She's doing great. Beautiful muscle tone, coat, mane and tail. And the smartpaks are just so easy for anyone to use that we don't have to worry about who is feeding. She will always get the right dose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the start of the third month for my rescue Thoroughbred mare taking Smartflex-rehab-pellets Maintenance. She is 14 and would come out of her stall stiff. She no longer starts off stiff and her movement throughout riding is much more fluid.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hope loves the taste. I have just started using this product and I believe I see some results. For sure I will give this a full 3 months trial. Hoping for more results. By the way this is a Miniature Horse mare that I am using this on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product for the price I am very happy with this product. My QH is starting to age and I am trying to keep him as happy and sound as possible. I wanted a comprehensive, but cheap supplement to help with joints and I think that this is the one. I have made many small changes lately so I can't pinpoint what has helped the most but so far, I am very happy with my results. Doc enjoys these pellets as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maintenance Pellets I have add this to my horses daily grain. My gelding always seemed to showing joint soreness and stiffness. I would and still will always stretch him before riding but since I have given this to his daily routine he seems happier and moves more freely. He actually runs more on his own in pasture and to show his happiest by rearing up(which he never did before) and flickers

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this product a little over a month ago, and I've already noticed a difference in the movement of my horse. The smartpak packaging and dosing makes it an easy addition to our feeding regimen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Very effective. My 20 year old mare has been on this smartpak for a little over a year. It works wonders for her. I started her on it just to prevent stiffness in her aging joints. And now, she acts like a 5 year old when I ride her instead of a 20 year old.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure yet... Purchased for a teenage horse with lots of crackling joints. I think after 30 days it has improved a bit, but hard to tell so soon after starting it. No problem getting him to eat it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast working !!! I bought this bc my horse was starting jumping and started to pop and crack and he's only 12 so I bought this supplement and he's not popping and he's jumping with ease! Now that his jumping had moved up, I'm moving him to the smartflex II which I'm excited !

I can see he has improved when he first starts moving I am excited to see what this product does in another few months

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product at a great price! My horse has been on SmartFlex 1 for nearly 6 months now, and I love it! He is only 6, but is off the track, so very prone to injuries or issues with his legs. On this product it just helps to give me some peace of mind that it keeps his joints feeling loose and supple and good. He has had a past injury on his legs, so I'm very careful to keep him from getting any more injuries or have that injury act up (especially since it is a sesamoid injury), but this gives him just enough so that he never comes out stiff or sore and his past injury never bothers him (almost like it never even happened).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed I bought this for my 12 year old gelding when I got him a year ago. He was very out of shape and cracked every time he walked. Riding wise he was very stiff and just wouldn't move out like he should. He's been on this for about a year and you would never guess his age or that it was the same horse. Very impressed with the outcome. No more swelling in knees and cracking when he walks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flash Can Buck Our quarter horse paint was injured in the rodeo and was extremely tight. We have been giving him SmartFlex for two months now and he is able to run, buck and kick with the rest of the herd in this cold weather. He seems quite loose and comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results I've been using this for a month for my 32yr old Arab. Just prior to putting her on this I had a few instances where I found her on the ground unable to get up. The vet thought part of the problem was arthritis. After being on the product a couple weeks I took her out to hand walk her and she acted like she was three years old. I was completely amazed. She definitely looks like she's feeling better overall. As far as palatability goes, she eats it all every day. She can be very picky in her old age. I had to switch her grain 3 times in the last year before I found one she'd eat long term.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Gelding! Bought this for my 11 year old OTTB. He wasn't having lameness but I wanted a basic joint supplement since he's now considered middle aged. He has no problems eating it in his feed and is remaining nice and sound! As he increases in age I will eventually bump him up to the higher levels of glucosamine/HA/etc but he's doing great with this one!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My mare canters again! I started my retired older mare on this product about 2 weeks ago. She had been very lame from arthritis in her knee. Although her knee still looks terrible, and she is not 100% sound, she is now happy to canter through the pasture. She had been hobbling. It is so good to see her feel so good.
