    Vitamin B1 Pellets by SmartPak is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 130.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has helped tremendously This supplement has helped my horse tremendously. I noticed this when I decided to take him off of it one month to save a buck or two. That month he was almost unmanageable as far as the "ghost in the bush" spookiness and extreme "ADD." As soon as he went back on it he was much less dramatic within a week. He is also a picky eater to the EXTREME (sometimes turns his nose up to grain-type horse treats) and eats this with no problem.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't say for sure this worked Would recommend giving this product a chance, as it was recommended to me by several people, including my vet tech. Can't say that I saw much of a difference in my young horse, though

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeable Difference After having my 3yo show gelding on the b vitamin for a couple weeks i could see the difference in how he reacts to situations. His thought process is much stronger and he spooks less. I recommend this product to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing B1 made a huge difference to my horse! She is a 10 year old TB mare that has raced. She was always nervous, this product made a huge difference. She is a completely different horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horses like it Even my picky eater will eat these pellets without any grain, and he does seem more relaxed when he gets B1. He's not so different under saddle (he's good with or without) but he's quieter in turnout (which was a problem previously) and his general demeanor is more relaxed. For example, he made some really nasty faces when other horses had to walk by him in the cross ties, but with the B1 he is a little more settled about that kind of stuff. I think before he was more defensive and territorial than aggressive, and with the supplement he can relax and not worry so much that the whole world is out to get him.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive Alternative to Calming Supplements I wanted to put my OTTB on some sort of calming supplement, but they're all so expensive! He was on the track for 6 years and is still getting used to the life of a show horse. After doing some research, it seems as if deficiencies in Vitamin B1 and Magnesium are common reasons horses are anxious. I use a hoof supplement which contains magnesium, and I wanted to supplement with B1 as well. I was excited to find a supplement which was just B1, without the expensive bells and whistles and questionably effective herbs. At just a half scoop a day, I've been thrilled with the results. My horse is much more relaxed and has stopped weaving in his stall. In addition, it has taken him from unmanageable (i.e. being dismissed from classes) to manageable (still nervous, but able to perform) at shows. I now add SmartCalm paste for shows, and finally feel like his anxiety is under control at all times.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great B1 Supplement This supplement is amazing! My picky eater loves this supplement. He has slight string halt and this helps so much! It also helps calm him down and relaxes him. I must buy for stressed horses or horses with string halt.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will never run out again I have been trying calming supplements for years with my super hot, super spooky TB. About a year ago I started him on quiessence and smart park b1. I hade used smart calm and smart calm ultra but it did not really had the results I expected soi kept looking for for the right combination for my TB. I did a lot of research and decided to keep b1 in the combo of calming but was unsure as bit b1 can actually act as un upper liKe other b vit. Anyway, one day I run out of b1, and about 10 days after I run out I got a call from my barn that my horse had lost it. He can be turned out under specific conditions that of course my barn follows, but for 2 days he was completely losing it. Running himself white in the pasture within 10 min, pacing, bucking....even going crazy in his stall. I run to local feed store to get some b1 until my smarpak ordder could come in and within a couple days he calmed down. I will never run out of b1 ever again. And smart pak has the highest concentration for the price. Just wish they would sell it in bigger bulk.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yummy? Well maybe.... 2 out of 4 horses readily ate the product. The horse that needed it most, an OTTB, would not touch it - even when mixed in with a hot bran mash - which is his favorite. The mustang was also very suspicious but did eventually try it when mixed in with the bran mash. We jokingly say he is eating it with his front teeth only.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best B1 Supplement I love that this supplement is in pellet form. My picky eater eats it right up!
    Date published: 2012-01-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working Put my horse on the pellets because he is a bit hot and with winter coming he developed "winter brain" last year with limited turn out due to the weather. I"m not 100% sure if its me riding better, him on a better training schedule, or the pellets. But for $10 a month, I"m not going to change anything. My guy eats it right up, but he eats about anything. Would definitely suggest trying this supplement before one of the more expensive ones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product!!!! I have a 10 year old Quarter Horse gelding with an attitude problem. He acts more like a mare than a gelding. The vet suggested putting him on B1. I ordered from SmartPak because I trust and love their products. Right from the start I saw a big change in his attitude and behavior. He was much more agreeable and focused. He wasn't looking for a fight all the time. Everyone in the barn noticed a change in him too. Took him to a show after he had been on the B1 for a few weeks. He was a totally different horse. All business and eager to get to work!! Have suggested B1 to a few friends and they are thrilled with the results too! If you don't see any change in your horse with this product, double the dose, some horses need a double dose. This is a GREAT product and has made a huge difference in my horse.
    Date published: 2012-01-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartPak is the best! After a poor experience with SmartCalm Pellets (my horse apparently can't handle magnesium) I decided to try the B1 supplement. After 2 weeks he is a much happier, calmer horse and is actually paying attention to me when I ride. SmartPak also called me twice about the SmartCalm pellets to find out what went wrong (stomach problems) and to make sure my horse was okay. The best customer service I've received from any equine supply company. I've told everyone I know who rides to use SmartPak for ALL of their horsey needs!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I have put 2 horses on this supplement. Both seem to be somewhat calmer; though, one is more so than the other. Another thing noticed, is that one used to circle in his stall more. Now it is easier to clean his stall in the morning as well. While the second horse is a tad calmer, it is not a dramatic difference, but I'll take it. I noticed that in other reviewer's comments, some observed it took longer to notice results. Sometimes it didn't help certain horses at all. So we'll see how it goes. So far, based on the very economical cost per horse, I'd say it's worth it already.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Started my new horse on B1 pellets a couple of weeks after his arrival at his new home. He's an appendix qtr. horse and has that thoroughbred mentality. Nervous & unsettled at first, he is definitely calmer & much less excitable than upon his arrival. I feel that the B1 helped him relax, focus on his job more and allow him to feel more at home in his new surroundings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from unbelievable!!! get it now!!! i have a barrel horse that was starting to have alot of issues in the gate. after about 5 days on this he was a completely different horse! i have trained and ridden my whole life and i have never seen a product work so well or so quickly! does not dull performance or speed like other calming products. he actually wants to go now! he will be on this product for the rest of his life! oh and the smartpacks and auto ship make it effortless on my part. thank you so much!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplement This is my final review for this supplement. My mare was put on it this Spring because she was unmanageable. She was naturally nervous, and a hot headed TB mare. She was easy to work with, calmer, less jumpy and more focused within a week of being on this supplement. I would ride her off property and she was a different horse. She's no longer being ridden so I took her off and put her on a multi-vitamin that had B-1 as an ingredient. I highly recommend Smart B-1 to anyone who has a nervous, unfocused or jumpy horse. I even tried it on a few other horses (short term for training) and it worked very well! It's also picky eater approved!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from He's happy and so am I This seems to have worked pretty quickly, my horse is more relaxed and therefore so much more focused. It did not alter his sensitivity or forward willingness just seems to have given him that "sigh", I can do this attitude back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been feeding B1 to my pony for about 2 months now, and I'm happy with the results I've been seeing. He seems to be a lot more rational and less explosive, but without seeming sedated or drowsy. The B1 is very palatable (and he is very picky!), and I'm able to feed it to him by hand as a treat. However, I had to double the recommended dosage in order to see an effect. My trainer mentioned that she had the same issue with this supplement, but resolved it by simply upping the dosage. My only complaint is that this is not sold in bigger quantities! I go through a bucket rather quickly now that I feed more than the recommended dosage. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking into calming supplements and vitamins for their spooky horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same as powder...good! My 12 y/o QH gelding has been on B1 for over a year, and he and I are both glad about that. He was on the powder version until the pellets came out. The pellets are just as effective as the powder, and he eats them right off the top of his grain. Cost effective supplement that makes him more relaxed and happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty pellets My horse loves the taste of these pellets! It has seemed to help with his spookiness when we trail ride...except for those pesky woodchucks!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked for a While... For the first week I had my Thoroughbred on this supplement it seemed to help him focus... but after that it only seemed to wind him up. He did better without it than with it, but at first there definitely was a difference in his focus.
    Date published: 2011-05-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I started feeding B1 to my extremely spooky pony after a recommendation from my trainer. It's taken a few weeks, but I'm finally starting to see a decrease in his nervous energy. He's still the same looky pony, but it's much easier to get him to focus now. I did have to play with the dosage, however. I ended up feeding him 2 scoops a day instead of the suggested 1, and it wasn't until I upped the dosage that I saw a difference in behavior.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value and great product My mare has been on SmartB1 for several years now and I love it. She used to be very nervous and stressed in new places, but after starting her on SmartB1 she was a different horse. Don't get me wrong, her "thoroughbred-ness" is still there, but now she doesn't react irrationally. I would highly recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from has helped! I have an apendex mare who i got 2 years ago and when i first got her she was a little jumpy nothing horrible just enough to get on your nurves when you are trying to get something done in the ring ( u know troting around and all of a sudden the shadow you passed 300 times suddenly turns in to a lion). so I decied to give B1 a try after reading and asking around about things that may help. I did not want anything that would make her "dead" seeing that she already is more or less a slug undear saddle (must be the QH in her) I just wanted something that would take the "edge" off. so I took a chanse on the B1 after all at this price if it did not work its not like i was tossing out lots of money. well 2 years later i still have her on it. it works just enough to help her from beliving that shadow in the corner of the ring is a lion, but i don't loose any engergy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure it is helping I added this to my horse's Smart Pak on the advice of a friend & riding instructor as my TB is unfocused, spooky and noise sensitive. Didn't really notice much difference for some time. Although with time and patience and further training he has become much more trusting of me and our relationship and has become a better partner. Maybe the B1 helped but I really can't say for sure.
