    SmartVite Thrive Senior Pellets is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 62.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I saw a difference in my horse's coat and attitude within 2 weeks, amazing! My mare is a Morgan and gets fat just by breathing air . . . proof because she is a picky eater and turns her nose up on most supplements. But, she likes SmartVite Thrive and eats it right up. Prior to starting her on Thrive, she was on DCarb Balance and Farrier's Formula Double Strength, but she still had super dry skin (dandruff in her mane and tail and dry spots on her shoulder and hip) and her hooves were still dry and cracking. Because she gets fat so easy and has foundered in the past, I have to be careful about turnout and feed. She has a big turnout area, but cannot go out on pasture to get the "good stuff" because of her condition. I used the Supplement Wizard and it suggested adding SmartVite Thrive. She has been on this for 2 months now, and she really looks great. I highly recommend this product if your horse is lacking essential vitamins and nutrients.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally confident horse......... priceless This product combined with the Smart Tranquility has transformed my 18 year old gelding from a nervous, afraid horse with zero confidence into a relaxed joy to be around!! Due to the heat I have only ridden him once, but was amazed at how calm he was. Thank you Smartpak friends!!! Debbie and Domino Due

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! My mare loves the taste of these pellets. I feel good knowing she's getting the nutrition she needs. Everyone who sees her comments on how healthy she looks. I tell them it's her Smartpaks :)
    Date published: 2017-07-22
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, poor availability I switched my older mare to this product after using Accel Lifetime for years. I like that this is a pelleted product, as she gets almost no grain & she thinks the supplement is food. She eats it well and is doing well on it. My major problem is that now it is unavailable until November. Smartpaks are great, but...... is it better to stay with a supplement made by a national company so you have consistency in what your horse receives on a daily basis? I'll have to think about that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work! I bought these for my two geldings (15 and 16 years old) that have hay three times a day and some grass pasture. They are at a boarding facility and the grass pasture just wasn't enough for them. My 16 year old started to lick anything and everything (even me!) when he never had before. Made me wonder if he was vitamin/nutrient deficient somehow. Anyway, they have both been on these for about three weeks. They eat them right up like yummy goodness. The 16 year old has stopped licking everything - so I think they are working!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from My mare would not eat it My mare is an easy keeper, so I wanted to make sure that she was getting all of the vitamins she needed. I tried this with her for weeks but she just wouldn't eat it!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I could give more stars I ordered this in SmartPaks after speaking with a customer service representative, and she recommended it for my senior senior gelding who is not out on much pasture and doesn't eat a full serving of grain. I wish I could rate higher, as it seems like an excellent product, however my old man refuses to eat it: as soon as he smells it, he turns his nose up and refuses to touch his entire ration. I've tried to disguise it every way I can think to do so (wet grain, different types of grain, hay stretcher, mix with carrots, apples and peppermint, and even the SmartPak Equi sweet) with no success. He's in good health for a senior citizen, just pickier than picky. For those not super picky eaters out there I'm sure it's a great product, just not a good fit for us. I guess we're just going to have to continue searching for a palatable substitute for my old guy. As always, SmartPak was terrific in making the recommendation and super fast shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy Vitamins Recently I started my 18 year old gelding to the SmartVite Trive Senior pellets. He looks and feels great and the best part (according to him) is that they taste yummy! How do I know this? Because he gobbles them right up instead of sifting them out like other supplements!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Balance! I bought this for my retired 28 yr old gelding & he eats it with no problems! It seems to give him just what he needed to compliment his wholefood diet & I love that no iron is added since horses get plenty from hay alone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have! I am on my second month of SmarkPak for my horses and I wish I would have started feeding SmartPak from the beginning. My gelding is 16 years old and I feel better knowing he is receiving the vitamins to help keep him healthy. I am very pleased with everything SmartPak has to offer for my horses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic senior vitamin My horse was on smartvite performance when he was younger but as he's aged and is semi-retired, I felt that he needed a more basic, senior vitamin. It seems to be working. He eats it right up without grain, as he did the smartvite performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balanced vitamin supplement! I bought this a few weeks ago because my horse was low on energy after being in a dry lot with hay rations for 45 days to lose weight. Her blood work showed she had metabolic syndrome ( diabetes for humans). She lost about 150 pounds. This supplement has given her energy again at age 26 and she loves the taste! She wants to get some exercise now and move! She is back to flirting with the geldings!

She is much more affectionate (she has tended to be a bit "cranky" these last few years) and actually seems happy....Time will tell, but so far this past month, I am very pleased with this supplement and we both thank SmartPak for this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My girl looks awesome! I started my 17 year old Arabian mare on this two months ago. She has been an easy keeper but she was starting to look a little rough around the edges. After being on this, she has shed out well and has perked up! She had a colt last year and to be honest, I didn't wean him when I should have and that took a lot out of her. But she has bounced back after starting this supplement! I'll be keeping her on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all purpose vitamin I started my little senior pony on this vitamin a month ago. He wasn't having an particular issues other than getting older(he is 15 now). Hoping this will keep him eating and looking healthy into his senior years. Affordable preventative maintenance.
    Date published: 2016-02-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far, so good! I started both of my twenty-something horses on this to support their overall health as well as provide minerals to boost their immune system after a summer of persistent white line issues. Both of my horses eat it right up, and after a couple of months their feet are looking a bit better. I want to say that my thoroughbred mare seems a little more calm and contented, too, but I can't be sure that it is because of this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So Good Started my mare on this about 6 weeks ago because she wasn't getting grain anymore. I haven't noticed any real difference but I'm happy to maintain her good health. I'm very interested to see how she goes through the winter on it. Great quality and palatability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smartvite Senior I tried this product for a month and would keep my mare on it except I decided to go a different direction with her feed for the time being. It is a very good product and Penny had no problems with it. I may consider it for the near future should I decide to switch back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've been using Barn Bag supplement for many years now with satisfying results. Now that I have down sized from running a boarding stable to just my own two senior horses (18 and 32 years of age) I thought I'd try the Thrive Sr. My younger horse frequently spits some of it out onto the floor, so not sure that he likes it much. My old girl seems to think it's okay. Might go back to Barn Bag, but not sure yet.
