Why We Love This

Shapley's Original M-T-G plus is the same great formula as Original M-T-G but with a light herbal scent!  It is an easy to use, veterinarian recommended product providing quick and effective relief from a variety of bacterial and fungal skin problems such as rain rot, scratches, girth itch, sweet itch, dry skin and tail/mane rubbing. Original M-T-G Plus creates a healthy environment for the hair follicle, producing maximum growth while keeping the length of the hair shaft soft and pliable for minimum breakage.  In fact, users report up to 3 inches of new growth on manes and tails in a single month.  Horsemen worldwide know Original M-T-G plus as the single solution for both skin healing and hair growth. 

Made in the USA

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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 Plus is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! My boy had rubbed off an eight inch section of mane. I've been treating him for a little more than a week. His mane is already growing back!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from like the new scent! This product works well on flaky itchy tails and manes. And the new scent is much more tolerable!
    Date published: 2016-10-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A VERY HELPFUL PRODUCT AT A VERY REASONABLE PRICE! This is not the first purchase of MTG I have made and it will not be the last. I have a Friesian who has skin issues especially in the area of his feathers. I clip his legs and use MTG+ and within 2 days you can see new hair growing and his legs look healthy.
    Date published: 2016-08-17
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Use with caution! I used M-T-Green on my horse's tail and it caused the hair to fall out at the root! He now has a bald spot where it was applied. His skin was inflamed and became very dry. It took weeks of daily rinses of his tail to fully remove the M-T-G residue and to finally have the dry, flaky skin healed. My suggestion would be to test a small area before applying to manes and tails.
    Date published: 2016-06-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it's job! It cleared my guy up with just one application in 2 days! Super impressed with this product! Doesnt smell the best, but it truly does it's job!
    Date published: 2016-05-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works Avoided using this product due to the smell,however out of desperation, I began using it on my very allergic horse and have had remarkable success.

    Date published: 2016-02-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just as bad smelling as the original I hate this stuff, but it does work. I've used the original for years, even though it's greasy, smelly, attracts dirt, and makes a terrible mess. This new "plus" is no better. It still smells like burnt wood. Yes, I know it's the sulfur, and the sulfur is the key ingredient to the reason this product works. I use it for rain rot. The kind where your horses hair comes out in big clumps. This greasy stuff stays on the horse and your hands and the blanket and anything else you touch. And it will help regrow your horses hair and get rid of rain rot. Bottom line: If you need to kill rain rot and regrow hair, this is the stuff that works. But as a "plus" with new improved scent, it's a fail. Buy the original and save a buck.
    Date published: 2016-01-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but smells awful! I have a mare with sweet itch and this clears it up in a matter of days (with daily applications). It does smell pretty bad and the smell will stay on your hands if you use it without wearing gloves. The "plus" herbal scent doesn't smell any better than the original. It's the only product I can find that works to clear up the mares skin & hair grows back pretty quickly. I'll keep using this despite the odor!
    Date published: 2015-12-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Purchase My sister swears by this product due to her horse always rubbing his hair out. It works wonders!
    Date published: 2015-12-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results. I bought this for 3 paint mares that had been neglected and their manes showed it. It really helped condition and there was some more growth as well.

    Date published: 2015-09-15
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate this stuff. It's super greasy, oily and smells awful. I haven't seen any dramatic differences when I use it so it's not worth it to me.
    Date published: 2015-06-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product Great product, not worth the extra money for the herbal scent, so I only gave it 4 stars. I have used this for hair re growth scabby/ scaley areas and aiding stronger/ healthier tail. Will never go without this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have at any Barn This stuff is great I have used it for years. It makes tails grow, works wonders on skin problems and makes hair grow back fast on scrapes. This is my first bottle of the Plus and the smell is much more pleasant.
    Date published: 2014-10-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MTG Plus Absolutely LOVE this product. Many comment on the awful smell but bottom line is that the product actually works. MTG can be used for so many things so its a good product to have in you barn.
    Date published: 2014-10-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much easier to smell Did you ever think you would say MTG had a pleasant odor ?? This new MTG Plus is much easier on my sensitive nose!! Thank you-the product hasn't changed it is still the best!!
    Date published: 2014-09-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, better smell I have an Appy gelding. He started rubbing his tail, so between that and the short Appy tail I thought this might help promote better growth. I definitely noticed a difference. His tail has never looked so good. Another big plus, the smell isn't as strong as the Originial M-T-G. Every horse owner should have this in their tack room!
    Date published: 2014-08-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved smell I have used the original MTG in the past and liked what it did to condition my mare's mane and tail, but hated the smell. Now with the new "Plus" version the scent is no longer offensive. I'm thrilled they've made this improvement, it's a great product.
    Date published: 2014-04-22
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't do it I got this for my mare's chronic scratches and it did not help.
    Date published: 2014-04-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seeing results! My horse has a very sparse mane so a friend recommended MTG. I have only used it for 2 applications so far (you only need to apply 1x per week) but I am already seeing results! His mane appears thicker and longer! The oil in the product is a bit messy, but it really seems to penetrate the hair to prevent breakage and keep it silky & shiny. I'm impressed and will continue to use this product.
    Date published: 2014-03-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Really Works!! I've been using this product religiously for about 4 months and we have 3 inches of growth and some serious volume! Applied to the roots once a week and worked a little through the rest of her tail (also kept it braided 24/7). It still smells weird but for the results, it doesn't matter!
    Date published: 2014-03-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great but still smells bad :) I bought the original mtg a few weeks before this stuff to put on my horse's tail. It really works, I actually noticed a difference in a week. I bought the "plus" hoping it would smell better but it doesn't. Mtg is worth the money but probably not worth the extra couple bucks for the plus.
    Date published: 2014-03-03
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was hopeful that the herb scent would make it smell a lot better than the Original MTG. It helps a little, but it still has that stinky MTG smell.
