    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Support and Healing! My sweet 3 y.o. thoroughbred tore a suspensory ligament two weeks after I brought him home while he was making bad decisions in his paddock. I found out about this product a few months into the healing process and only wish I had found it sooner. While my horse was healing okay and got back into riding, he was just missing...something. There wasn't a pep in his step. After starting this, you could tell he felt 110% better. He was lively, willing to run around, kick up his feet. I am so grateful to see him thriving and living his best life. He will be on this supplement for as long as I can afford to give it to him. Literally the ONLY con about it is the way it smells, but that is probably just a preference thing. Reminds me too much of black licorice and I happen to hate that stuff!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking better! My horse was diagnosed with suspensory desmitis in his hind leg. The barn manager suggested I add smart tendon to his treatment protocol. She had a lot of success in using it on here horses. His leg is looking better and tonight I noticed his comfort level appears improved. He eats it with no problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works!! I bought this for an older gelding that injured a front tendon. A month of icing, hosing, and bute did not take the heat or swelling off of it. Two weeks on SmartTendon and I saw a dramatic difference and no more heat. One month, and WOW, you can hardly tell it was injured. I've had people look at and say it's going to take at least 6 months if it even heals. I became a believer in SmartPaks from this supplement!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible!!! I bought this and have been feeding it to my horse along with many other SmartSupplements. He sustained a suspensory ligament injury about a year in a half ago. After working carefully with my vet he finally got cleared for full work again about 6 months ago. After receiving a coupon in the mail I decided to go ham a purchase a few months in advance and I can see can incredible difference in my horse!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Senior mare more comfortable My 29 year old Arabian mare was retired from riding after ultra sound showed major changes due to aging. This mare had always been agile and highly athletic her entire life so to see her in this way was heartbreaking. I searched for something to help keep her comfortable in her senior years. I decided to try the 28 day pack of smart tendon. Within 2 weeks we noticed some very small changes - one being she was walking with less stumbling. Not being totally convinced, i tried the 56 day supply and have been amazed at the results. Standing solid on all 4, no stocking up and even confident enough to trot. She is a very picky eater but is loving the pellets. Last year we had one of the worst winters in Wisconsin with tons of ice impacting turnout. Many horses were stalled for weeks on end and during this entire time she was very comfortable. When we went into the indoor arena, she showed minimal stiffness and worked out of very quickly. She even flagged her tail and gave a prancy Arabian trot like she used to. I have been very impressed and plan on keeping her on Smart Tendon. I know there is no cure for her issues - its just part of getting older, but the supplement is giving her a better quality of life as we manage the senior years. Her eyes are even more softer as i think she is feeling better. Some of my fellow boarders are also interested to try Smart Tendon for there horses. Great product and working for this Senior Mare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results! I have a 21 year old Arabian mare with DSLD. It had gotten to a point to were if she exerted herself even slightly, she'd be dead lame in her hind leg (lame as in non weight-bearing). After 3 emergency vet calls, lots of icing (which she hates), orally giving Bute ( because she wouldnt touch her grain if I mixed it in), and days of stall rest (she became a fire breathing dragon on steroids); I was at my wit's end. So, with determination, I went on a search for something to hopefully keep my old lady comfortable on her four legs and help advance her quality of life. A lot of supplements either didnt provide the right ingredients or was much too expensive; until I stumbled upon SmartTendon. With all it's reviews and affordable cost, I ordered it. A month passed and I was AMAZED at the difference in my girl! She was finally able to keep up with the younger ones, she started engaging her hind end, shes much more comfortable getting her feet done and she can finally gallop the field and be completely sound the next day! I will be keeping my girl on this supplement until the day she dies. Not to mention that she loves the taste!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped Heal a Check Ligament Sprain Ok so I can't 100% say that this was a miracle supplement that changed the game for the ligament sprain I've been dealing with for the last few months, but I will say that I put my 21 y/o OTTB on this when he developed a check ligament sprain and you now can barely see any sign of it. He's sound, back in work, and has very limited residual scar tissue. Will be keeping him on it for at least another 6 months to let the ligament fully heal. 100% recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So thankful May 5th of 2018 my main barrel horse sustained an injury to both of her front legs. She damaged her superior superficial digital flexor tendons. We are 4 months into the recovery and about 3 months into using this product and yesterday we had our first ride since the injury. My vet is extremely happy with her recovery. I thank this supplement for getting her back to riding so quickly!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well! My 11yr old mare has been on this supplement for about a month. I bought it to eliminate clicking and popping in her rear joints. It seems to have diminished the clicks and pops and the more she is on it, the less clicking and popping I hear. Highly recommended. It doesn’t small all that great but my mare likes it when mixed in her ration balancer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Started my 3yo filly on this because she started “clicking” in her hind legs. Haven’t even finished the first month of Smart Paks and the “click” is gone. Will be keeping her on this supplement! No issues with her eating it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be helping!! I have had my 31 year old mare on this product for about 6 weeks and farrier told me that it seems to be working and to keep her on it. She had trouble standing on her hind legs for farrier, but now he was able to lift her hind legs up higher when trimming and she was more stabilized while standing. Not sure if this was suspensory ligament issues or not, but this supplement is helping. I have tried other supplements before that she would not eat. This one she likes!! And it's working too!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME Supplement! My horse tore his DDFT and bruised his suspensory branch a little over three months ago. I started this product about three weeks in to his stall rest. At his three month check, the vet was VERY pleased to see the suspensory branch completely back to normal, and the tear nearly filled in with new tissue! I have no doubt in my mind that this supplement helped, and will be keeping him on it for maintenance once he is fully healed!

It has helped the healing process go more quickly and I feel confident she is getting what she needs to recover fully. 3 months later and she is looking great! I will keep her on this supplement from now on. It's worth the money to make sure she has the added support!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great! I bought this for my horse who suffered a suspensory injury, after giving him this supplement I had an ultrasound done to check the healing process.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple & effective My horse has been on this supplement for a couple months now. I have definitely seen an improvement with his soundness & gait in general. He had about 7yrs off work in a pasture. So naturally when bringing him back into work everything was a bit loose on him,particularly in the joints. This supplement has helped speed up the entire process of getting him back into shapeike & allowing his body to do what his brain wants.
    Date published: 2018-01-18
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from He likes the taste of them. My horse cut his leg this summer and frayed the tendon. In reading in the supplement catalog I noticed you had SmartTendon Pellets so I decided to give them a try and hopefully they will strengthen all the tissue around the tendon. I know they won't heal the tendon -- but I'm hoping they help get it back into shape. It is winter where I live so haven't been able to ride him -- but am hoping in a month or so to get him started getting back into shape -- and I hope the pellets have worked.
