    SmartTLC Pellets is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 234.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would NOT eat it! I had very high hopes for this product for my 20-year-old quarter horse gelding that has arthritic issues in his shoulders and front knees but unfortunately, he would not eat it. I tried adding applesauce, his grain, and alfalfa pellets, NO LUCK! Very disappointed but moving on to another product. He is normally somewhat picky but this is the first product I have ever had him completely refuse to touch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased so far I moved my horse to this supplement and off one that my Vet perscribed. The one he was on was mega collagen - which doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I liked the ingredience of this supplement much more - more natural and plant / herb based. It has been about a year since my horse suffered from major Impar ligament damage, DDFT trauma, and bursa inflammation. We are in a simple reverse shoe with a pour and on this supplement ONLY - no NSADS!!! Happily trail riding and on full turn out!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Whole New Mare! I started giving my mare this product about two months ago and all I can say is wow! My 10 year old mare has an old leg injury that caused her to be stiff and hitch her step at anything above a walk. After taking these pellets, everyone has commented on her renewed vigor on the trail. She gallops and lopes around with her ears perked forward. She is such a happier girl now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A more relaxed, fluid horse. My trainer loves how my horse moves more stiffness. She carries herself better at her 23 years. A happier horse to ride!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Note of caution: ENERGY LEVEL I don't know if it's because he's feeling better or the fatty acids in this product are kicking the energy level up, but my 21 year old TB/TK gelding is high as a kite on this stuff. Not in a good way. I will need to try something else. I feel like it would work great on horses that are naturally lower energy, but my guy does not need encouragement in that department! He did eat it all right up, though, and he's a relatively picky eater

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to help I bought this for my aged Paint Gelding with arthritis. After two months of using Smart TLC, he seems to be a bit more comfortable. I would recommend anyone with an aged horse battling arthritis to give it a try.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Got this stuff back in March, which it was still pretty cold around here that time of year and always is the worst for my 13 year old, and saw a huge difference in him in a week! I've spent years having to sit by watching him in pain and discomfort, supplement after supplement and nothing working! Thank you SmartPak, the love of my life was back to his old self again! Although I've hit some financial difficulties SmartTLC will be back in his feed again very soon and with it a good feeling horse!
    Date published: 2017-07-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working! My gelding is only 9 but has been in full competition his whole life. He had some overall stiffness, which we couldn't pinpoint and was not a lameness, per se. He has been on SmartTLC for about 6 weeks now and seems to be perfect. No more stiffness! We changed several things so it would be impossible to say for sure that it is a result of the SmartTLC but I think it is definitely worth a shot before you try any sort of Adequan or injections. I feel that I have made the right choice...easier on his body and my wallet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It helps! I saw results overnight with my senior mare. I also have had great results with my senior gelding. Both are over 40, retired, and have stiffness issues, especially in winter. This product has increased both animals' mobility and comfort.
    Date published: 2017-02-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm impressed! I have been using this product for almost 2 months now on my 19 yr old mare and a 21 yr old gelding. They seem to be feeling great and acting young again. It appears to be just the boost they needed in their supplementation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seeing an improvement in my senior horse! I have a Tennessee walking horse/quarter horse gelding that is around 20 years old. He has had problems with arthritis-especially in his hind legs. Having the farrier trim his hooves on his back legs was challenging. Shadow would stomp down his foot a lot during the trimming process because he was uncomfortable. Now he can have his back hooves trimmed with a lot more comfort and he does not stomp his back legs down a lot. I also asked him to trot around in a circle one time when I worked with him in my last session with him. He trotted around one whole lap (almost broke into a walk but then with a little encouragement he trotted onwards). Shadow also loves the taste, he gobbles up every pellet! It smells good too. :-) I give this supplement 2 thumbs up. :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have a horse with Kissing Spine who despite surgery can still come out quite sore. This has increased the number of comfortable days that she has more than any other supplement I've tried so far, and I'll definitely keep her on it!
    Date published: 2016-11-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartTLC has been absolutely amazing for my 13 year old AQHA mare. I switched her to this product from a more expensive brand of supplements and I am so glad I did. Prior to starting SmartTLC, her joints we clicking and had she suffered from chronic intermittent soreness and lameness. Since starting this she has been able to get back to her normal routine and is happy to be jumping again. Granted every horse handles each supplement differently, but I highly recommend trying this supplement. I began to see results after just 4 weeks!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be helping Recently starting my ottb gelding on this last month, only difference I've noticed is he doesn't seem to be falling out behind as much
    Date published: 2016-11-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I put my 20 OTTB on Smart TLC who has always been uncomfortable due to age and his past Racetrack/Eventer career. After feeding this , I noticed a positive difference in his overall ability to move in about three weeks. His joints were no longer stiff or puffy and he was moving and playing in the pasture like a young colt. This product truly amazing.
    Date published: 2016-08-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally, a supplement that actually helps! I recently decided to switch my gelding from SmartSenior to SmartTLC. I am so glad I did. My horse had been having issues with being lame off and on. Finally he is back to his normal self! Whatever it is, it's great!
    Date published: 2016-08-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working well I decided to switch to SmartTLC for my gelding with longterm soundness issues recently. I love the ingredients list -- I did a lot of research before settling on this one. I've been able to cut back on his bute significantly, which is great. I think it made a difference in his comfort for sure. He's moving better than he has been in months. He will likely be on this for life, which will hopefully be a very long time! I also used this supplement for my last horse. I know it made a huge difference in her, especially during her last year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tasty way to get our horses to eat MSM etc. I have been seeing MSM and powdered antiinflammatory herb formulas left in feed dish, which has not been a problem with Smart TLC pellets.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product, just no results for me. I've had my mare on TLC for 2 months now and though she eats it without a problem, I have seen no visible results. I will keep hey on the herb-free senior as she seems to be more comfortable on it.
