In the US we refer to Hungarian paprika as simply paprika. I have not personally seen results but worth a try. I have great results with a natural product which contains grape seed extract and coconut oil. Good luck.

The people I know who used it it absolutely works and is wonderful! I don't think the paprika is the only ingredient that does anything because they have a "show" formula w/out paprika that works as well.

I use the Gold as Sun version and I saw insanely dramatic results! I actually think I need to feed less because my horse got SO dark!

My boyfriend is also trying to make me buy Black as Knight rather than experiment with paprika... I don't even know what kind to get, I mean, are you really talking about the pepper you use everyday for cooking? The red sweet powder spice? THAT thing is supposed to make my horse black? I looked in the store today, it was full of sweet and spicy hungarian paprika but I haven't found any spanish one (they say it's better). And I still can't believe that pepper would actually help my horse grow a shiny black coat, it's like believing feeding my horse cinnamon would grow him a unicorn horn I mean, I'm not saying it doesn't work, I've never tried it, it just sounds funny to me... and kinda shocking too. I'd very much appreciate if somebody could explain to me what a paprika is and where to get it. Otherwise I'm just really gonna end up selling all my movables and buying Black as Knight

Here are the pictures of the scratches I was talking about. They'd been there for a few weeks when I took the pictures and hadn't faded at all.

Weirdly, my mare's coat decided to completely fall out and regrow black.

You can see it trying to turn black in random patches here:

And here she is about a week later (granted a little sweaty, but still MUCH darker):
