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 337.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energizer strong I have been feeding this to my now 25 yr old arab for years and he still trots down the trails like the energizer bunny, keeping up with the younger crowd. I purchased a 14 yr old arab mare 2 yrs ago and put her right on it because of her past racing career and a pelvis injury. She is doing wonderful on the always changing terrain we encounter out on the trails.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Senior Formula Now Just Joint Supplement I've been giving the SmartPak Smartflex Senior Herb-Free Pellets supplement for some time now and I am really disappointed with the new formula. The old formula contained Profloratin (a probiotic formulation) and the new omits this entirely. The new formula is basically just another joint supplement at a slightly lower price than before. My horse liked the taste of the original formula pellets more than other supplements I've given him, but I haven't tried this new one yet and since it is now just a joint supplement I may shop for another brand that is geared more towards the overall needs of a senior horse (with probiotics). It's too bad that some companies will take a perfectly good product and reformulate it to presumably maximize profits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Senior Pellets My horse loves these pellets! He eats them out of his food first. I have only used them for one month, so I haven't really noticed a difference in his joints yet. I will update the review at a later time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product to help prolong joint issues I purchased smartflex senior herbfree to help aid in prolonging any joint issues my horse my encounter in the future. He will be 17 this year. I am a firm believer in being pro active in providing joint supplements for both my horse and dog in efforts to prolong any joint issues they may encounter as they get older.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unfortunately horse didn't eat pellets Would have liked to give this a try but unfortunately my guy wouldn't eat it , which is odd as I've never had a problem with him not eating supplements before . LOVE smartpak and all of the other SmartPaks but sadly this was a no go for us :( Hoping to find something similar that he will eat ! Luckily this was a free months worth from equine affaire so no money lost , just wish he would've ate it so I could see if it worked !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky eater prefers the herb-free formula I had previously been feeling the Senior Supplement but my gelding decided he did not like the taste. I switched to the herb-free formula and now he's cleaning up his supplements again and not missing out on the great benefits that supports aging horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC PRODUCT! This is the absolute best senior joint supplement I have ever tried for my horses. All of them have stayed sound and comfortable, even on my steep hill turn out. I am very pleased with this product. It is affordable, palatable, and effective!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these pellets Been using this with my 18 year old off the track harness horse which I now use as a trail horse. He has more energy and is never stiff and ready to work now. just got his 2nd month shippment planing on keeping him on this for the rest of his life.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Moving better My mare has been on it a bit over a month. She previously foundered a few times, and got a tick disease 3 years ago that left her super arthritic, and had to retire her. She would just shuffle slowly, but she is walking better now. Still cant go faster than that, but just glad she is a bit more comfortable. Will really be able to tell if it's made a difference when I trim her.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from magic potion! the smart flex senior was added after Bill Harvey (the Best Farrier in the World) noted a stiffness in my walkers' left rear leg. the herb-free mix has been easy to administer and has put the glide back in my ride!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working Bought this after much confusion as to what my best option was. Was very pleased with the phone help I got and it seems to be helping my pony, who is not a senior, but does have joint issues. He's loooking very sound right now
    Date published: 2016-05-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less creaky I started my 20 yr old TB gelding on Smart Pak Senior Flex pellets and He seems to be more comfortable. Supplements don't do any good if the horse won't eat them, but he cleans them up unlike other things I have tried.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my horse! My boy was creaking and cracking even on another joint supp. After a month I watched him gallop in the field and under saddle he was happy to go forward.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Max has never felt nor performed better Max was a show horse in his younger years, and somehow fell into the hands of the Amish. His teenage joints were a little worn out when I bought him, so I called on SmartPak to help us. I had Max on Smart Flex Senior but changed him to the Herb-Free version due to drug restrictions at horse shows (The Herb-Free version does not have Devils Claw in it). We actually believe he is performing better than before, but as always, we are thrilled with the results that we see when we use SmartPak Products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Older horse has some pep in her step This is pretty good stuff. We have a 23 yo mare that always snap, crackles and pops when she walks. The sounds from coming from her joints are much less frequent and a lot less noticeable. She seems more comfortable.
    Date published: 2016-04-01
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slight Difference I just finished my first month having my mare on the supplements, and she definitely seems more loose and willing to run more in the turnout, but I'm still experiencing some stiffness while under saddle. Maybe after some more time she will show more improvement.
    Date published: 2016-03-21
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smart-flex senior herb-free So far I have not seen much improvement. I will finish this shipment and change to one with herbs.
