SmartStride™ Ultra Pellets is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! This product definitely seems to be working. I'm glad I started him on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps With Hock Issue I have had my gelding for over 2 years now and he has an osteocyte (spur) in his hock which causes lameness when the joint is not lubricated enough. He was being well managed on Pentosan shots + glucosamine 5000 until this past fall. I just took it easy with him thinking it was a flare-up but after a couple months with no improvement I decided to look at other supplements and like how this is specifically for hock health and tendons. I have to say after making NO changes other than this supplement, I noticed improvement and willingness to use the right hock after only about 2 weeks and now at almost 2 months in he is moving sound. I will continue to use this supplement and I have been able to back down his Pentosan shots from every 3 weeks to every 4 weeks with continued soundness. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is due to price and also it is 2 large scoops which is harder for me since I do not do the individual smartpaks. Additionally, my horse is a picky eater and gobbles this up as well as being IR and this has no additonal sugars so I feel safe feeding it to him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely saw a change I was using the product for a couple of months when a friend who hadn't seen him go in a while commented how much more "relaxed' and fluid he looked. I told her it must be the new SmartStride pellets! (she has since put her horse on it too!!) Couple days later, another friend made the same comment out of the blue - I'm a satisfied customer and have since convinced yet another person at my barn to switch her teenager OTTB to SmartStride as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd Month - Seeing Improvements I’ve had my horse on this for 3 months now and I am starting to see improvements in recovery, pain management and overall soundness. I started it because it has collagen and I really like how collagen has helped me with my pain. My horse seems to be feeling great, and I’m overall very pleased with this supplement. I am typically very frugal with my supplement expenses, but this one is worth every penny. It should be noted that this horse has been on Equioxx as well as other products to help with soundness. I am planning to remove Equioxx to see if soundness and recovery continues after strenuous workouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works!!! Tanner is almost 20. He has arthritis and had trouble even walking. We are starting our second month using Smartstride Ultra..he is running up and down the mesa. He is doing so great that l told a friend and she is trying it for her 30 year old. For me, it is like a miracle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better movement! This supplement seems to have helped my 9-year-old quarterhorse mate to be more sound and happier in her work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Significant Improvement in 22 yo APHA Gelding My boy has been on this for about 18 months with significant improvement in his chronic lameness issues. I was supplementing him with Equithrive and noticed that the SmartStride Ultra had a higher percentage of the same ingredients, along with some additional anti-inflammatory nutrients. I am now a believer in the power of Resveratrol with Tumeric. I have gone to autoship because he becomes uncomfortable/lame if I miss his dose for more than a few days. My horse responded incredibly well to the SmartStride Ultra. It may not work this well for every horse, but it improved my gelding's quality of life immensely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful to my gelding My horse has been on this supplement for a few months. I have found it to be very helpful in keeping him comfortable with increasing levels of work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Striding with more eagerness and fluidity My big 20 y.o. quarter horse, Red Man, was very stiff when I bought him at age 18, but is well bred and well conformed. I figured he needed some rest after being used for years on a ranch and in a feedlot - 10 hour days and lots of work. Now he's 20 and has been on Smart Pac senior flex and ultra breathe pellets for quite a while. Recently I added the SmartStride pellets for his tendons and ligaments. All 3 have helped him. He used to have about an 8" gap between the prints of his hind feet in relation to his fore feet - really mincing and stiff strides. Now the front curve of his back hoof print hits the back of his fore hoof print which is a huge improvement. Now I can really work with him to understand how that kind of stride improves his comfort, his rear-end drive and his movement efficiency. But he needed to be able to DO such a stride before I could work him into an understanding. We're on our way to way better comfort for both of us! I think Smart Stride was the last piece of the puzzle for the two of us. Not it's gradual work and understanding.
