Why We Love This

Original M-T-G has been providing quick and effective relief from numerous skin ailments since 1938! Originally formulated for humans, this safe and easy to use product is the only one needed for relief from a variety of bacterial and fungal skin problems, such as: 

• Rain Rot
• Scratches
• Girth Itch
• Sweet Itch
• Dry Skin
• Tail/Mane

Original M-T-G provides results after just one application! Formulated to eliminate the causative agent creating the skin problem, it conditions the skin and hair around the damaged area, promoting both healthy skin and maximum hair growth. In fact, Original M-T-G has proven to work exceptionally well promoting hair growth. Users report up to 3 inches of new growth on manes and tails in a single month.

Original M-T-G creates a healthy environment for the hair follicle, resulting in maximum growth while keeping the length of the hair shaft soft and pliable for minimum breakage. Original M-T-G is a time-tested, user-supported solution to both skin healing and hair growth in a single bottle. An oil-based product that does not require washing or water for application, it is not only easy to use, but great for cold weather.

Original M-T-G is also safe and effective on dogs and other animals’ skin problems, such as hot spots, itching and dry skin.

100% Happiness Guarantee
HappinessGuarantee
At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Shapley's Original M-T-G is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 148.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but can’t stand the smell While this is clearly a very effective product for a variety or skin conditions, the smell is hard to tolerate. Wish there was something that could be done about that.
    Date published: 2018-03-29
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from MTG Discussion page for horse health has posted over and over how it burns the horse-even if it helps some and burns others it should be taken off market to prevent burning and sores in horses!
    Date published: 2017-12-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from RAPID RESULTS AFTER ONLY A COUPLE OF APPLICATIONS, THE POSITIVE RESULTS WERE EVIDENT. GREAT PRODUCT.
    Date published: 2017-10-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stinky, but effective! This stuff really has a strong smell, but it is great stuff! It treats almost any skin condition or patch of lost hair, and it helps with dandruff also. I always keep a bottle on hand!
    Date published: 2017-04-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Amazing! I used MTG on my show horse's tail (since the braiding makes the hair fall out) and it has not only grown back fuller, but it is also shinier than ever.
    Date published: 2017-01-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works! I use M-T-G on my horses tail every winter as well as braiding it down and bagging it. It really helps to grow his tail during our down months!
    Date published: 2016-12-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for skin issues! This is a great product for a variety of skin issues. I have used it to treat rain rot as well as other skin fungus. I have also used it to help hair grow back in places where my horse has rubbed his hair off. It is very safe, which is a big plus for me. It's only downside is that it doesn't smell good. However, they also sell one which is supposed to smell better (but I haven't tried it).
    Date published: 2016-09-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, multiple uses! This is a great product for many uses ! I've used it to treat scratches , and to promote tail hair growth, I use it to promote overall coat growth, it adds a nice sheen and conditions hooves and softens dry skin patches.
    Date published: 2016-08-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have a very sensitive skinned chestnut who always seems to have perpetual scurf/rain rot in various areas of his body. I've always been careful of what products I use to treat his skin issues as many things I've tried have made him break out in hives. I was worried about trying this on him as it seemed strong, but he had no bad reaction to it AND it cleared up ALL his skin issues within two days! I'm truly amazed by how well this has worked and I plan to always keep some around now should he ever have a flare up again.
    Date published: 2016-08-24
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY I used MTG on my horse as a treatment for rain rot, it cleared it up but caused a massive sore on his butt ( which WAS NOT rain rot). Unless you want your horse to have sores, DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!! If I could rate this product a zero I WOULD! It also turned my palomino's mane green!
