Keeps your senior going strong

  • The same benefits of the original formula without the herbal ingredients
  • Ideal for competitive seniors or those with sensitive stomachs
New & improved taste horses love! SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets were designed to support older horses in the three areas they need it most – joint health, digestive function, and antioxidants for a healthy immune system. This herb-free version of original SmartFlex Senior is ideal for older horses that compete or those with sensitive stomachs, where devil’s claw may not be appropriate.

For joint support, SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets provide 8,000 mg of glucosamine, 700 mg of chondroitin sulfate, 75 mg hyaluronic acid, and 12,000 mg of MSM. This formula also contains 500 mg of the amino acid phenylalanine to help manage discomfort. To support healthy digestion, SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets provide probiotics, prebiotics, and enzymes. And because senior horses benefit from extra antioxidants, this supplement also contains vitamin C and super oxide dismutase. Your horse will love these tasty pellets!

    SmartFlex® Senior Herb-Free Pellets Original is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 335.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little early It's still a little early to tell as we are just getting into our second month using this. It seems like Cassie is picking up her feet better and moving somewhat better but i've also noticed that her hind pasterns are starting to pop more, where as, it wasn't on the tight joint. I do love that it has prebiotics and probiotics in it, it seems to have cleared up her diarrhea. I'll give it another month to see where it leads us.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work, but powdery Have used this for a couple of months and although it is winter and my 15YO driving mini is not in work now, he does seem to be more playful and I have seen him bucking, which I didn't see before. So we'll see what happens when work resumes. I started this because he is arthritic in his hocks and I hope that this, along with show-time support will help us continue to show in a low level environment. The one manufacturing problem that I notice is that although I am purchasing pellets, there is quite a bit of powder in it. Since I'm feeding a mini, I have to reduce the dose and when I try to scoop my 1/2 scoop, I never get just pellets--it's always pellets and powder. Thus I'm not sure of the accuracy of the dosing. I understand this may come from shipping, but I also get other pellets and they do not pulverize this easily. Perhaps you could consider making this in powder? An additional request--would you consider packaging smaller sizes? I have a mini and to try out a supplement, or treat for a short-term condition (e.g. Red Cell pellets), I end up buying a 5 lb. container and end up not being able to use 95% of it. I know no one else who uses them, so it's a waste. Perhaps that could be a special order situation?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brought my older horse back to life My older horse was stiff and off. He has navicular and is retired, but I wanted to make him more comfortable. After three weeks in this stuff, he is cantering around, swapping leads! He's NEVER done that. I'm very pleased. He wouldn't eat it the first day, so I had to break the dose into am & pm feelings. He's now eating it all at once.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I have been using this for two months now and I am very pleased with my results. My mare has always had some hock soreness and this has greatly improved her performance. She is much more comfortable and I feel better about each and every ride. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a joint supplement. This is money well spent!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast results! Our 18 year old quarter horse was getting stiff and had limited motion. We placed him on the supplement and within a month he was back to his normal self. He is a great horse for younger rides, and we are pleased he's riding again with the kids.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Mare Thanks You! I was searching unsuccessfully for a joint product for my 27 year old mare that did not contain herbal remedies such as Yucca, Devil's Claw, Boswalia, etc. I was at an event where the SmartPack representatives were present and was introduced to this wonderful product. It was exactly what I was looking for and my mare is definitely feeling much better. My mare was choosing which days she felt like going out in the pasture with her buddies, but now, even though she still has some good days and some bad days at her age, she whinnies daily to go join her pasture mates and trots in and out more than before to be with them! Thank you, SmartPack for formulating a product that works wonders for my special girl!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Just started Emma our 24 yr old OTTB on this about a month ago. She had previously been on Cosequin ASU but wanted to give this a try. She's still quite spry for an older mare & is being ridden 5-6 days a week & shows about once a month. She can be quite picky with her food and does not mind the flavor at all, which I was a little worried about. It's still a little early to see how well she's going to benefit from this, which is why I'm at 4 stars not 5. Will update once she's on it a little longer .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good! My horse has been on this for two months and she is moving much more freely!
    Date published: 2015-10-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I was looking for I tried this product because it had increased joint supplement and probiotics in one product. Previously I had my 13yr QH mare on SmartFlex I and Probios separate. She was still having popping sounds in her left hock. Since I have started SmartFlex Senior Herb Free about a month ago, she is no longer having popping sounds. Will continue to use this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smartflex senior herb free pellets I just started using these pellets a little over a month ago, and my horse loves them! not only that, I noticed a huge improvement in his gait. I highly recommend this product. Riddler is also on Adequan once a month and this joint supplement seems to go great with the Adeguan for a longer lasting relief.
    Date published: 2015-09-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Potential I don't know that one month of my mare being on this supplement is enough time to say it has had time to show a difference. I DO think it is helping her. Has her movement gotten as free and flowing as I hope that the supplement will make her, no but again, I was going to give it a full 90 days to show improvement before deeming it failure or a positive success. Therefore, I don't feel as though I can truly rate this product fairly at this time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works I started the smart back about two months ago and I'm never going back to not using it. I have a Tennessee walking horse that has lameness in his left foreleg. I still compete with this horse but it has been a struggle with his ouchie foot. This product took the inflation off the edge and gave my guy back his spunk fast! Super impressed. While I don't ride rated shows, I compete locally with him in just about everything from jumping, cattle sorting, and trail trails. I am feeling fabulous now that I have my buddy back! The smart packs are super benefit for a person keeping their horse at a boarding stable as the pellets never get mixed up and the proportions are always right.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me :( I bought this 2 months ago and the first month was great! But the second month on the smartpak my horse was lame again... His second month of smart paks have done nothing at all. I am very disappointed in it! :( Since smart paks didn't work and my horse hasn't been able to work much from his lameness he has been sold as a companion.... Overall, very disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart flex senior I've now had my horse on this for a month and he has honestly never felt better. He is a 19 year old Irish Sport Horse and was previously a bit stiff, but that has been completely remedied by his new smartpaks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helping older mare after tendon injury My mare incurred a tendon injury this past winter and was laid up. When I put her back to work I tried several supplements but this one is working the best. She seems freer in her movements. I will keep her on this from now on. Also love that it is herb free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great My 21 Year old QH gelding was having stifle issues to the point they were sore and sensitive to the touch. He couldn't canter and trotting was just as awkward. After about 2 weeks on this supplement and on stall rest I noticed that he seemed more comfortable and after a month he was back into light work and short trail rides. He is now into his second month and is almost back to himself again. This stuff works very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what it says it does! I had my 16 yo. all-around APHA gelding on Corta-flx for years, and I was not seeing the results I anticipated. He has been on Smart Flex Senior Herb-Free for one month and is acting like a two-year-old again! No more grumpiness, no more stiffness. He was also having a stifle issue and this has helped immensely. After showing WP, HUS, Trail, and Showmanship for 13+ years, he is still able to compete and I am going to thank SmartPak for that!
