Don't waste your money on it. Paprika is the main ingredient in all "black"/anti-fading supplements. There's really no reason to go with the name brand thing and spend all that extra cash on it when plain ole' paprika will give you the exact same results. You give one tablespoon twice a day.

However, if you show.. your horse will test positive on a drug test (because there's capsaicin in paprika - which is an illegal substance). I had to take my black mare off of it for that reason.

If you take a horse off of paprika 14 days before a show you won't test.

ive heard you just take them off of it 2weeks before the show & they wont test positive.

The reason I got BAK in place of regular paprika, is that paprika [that I can find] comes in such small bottles that you spend just as much buying a bunch of bottles as buying a big tub of BAK...i also bought mine second hand & hardly used =D

Does anyone know if paprika causes ulcers ?!?!

I would be hesitant to give horses BAK because it contains fish oil - in my opinion, there is nothing less natural than to change an animal from herbivore to omnivore, or even vice versa. I'm a Vegan, and because of that aforementioned belief, I still feed my dogs meat. I know, grain is not natural, and hay is not natural, and peppermints are also not natural - but they *are* all vegetarian. Like horses.

Is paprika perhaps is an illegal substance because it is bad for horses? I really have no idea, but I do have to wonder why they'd bother to ban it if it was good for them...

its illegal because there's capsaicin in paprika - which is an illegal substance

I don't mind my horse not being "vegan" bc both of my horses like meat, they will eat turkey & cat food & stuff haha

I think hay is pretty natural, it just dried grass

Paprika is the main ingedient. It will test at shows. So I just skip the additives and buy paprika in bulk.

Actually BAK is cheaper than paprika, I looked it up online. You can buy 5lbs of paprika for about $71 & you can get 6lbs of BAK for about $69

Capsaicin is a banned substance in equestrian sports because of its hypersensitizing and pain relieving properties. At the show jumping events of the 2008 Summer Olympics, four horses tested positive for the substance, resulting in disqualification.
