Does Regumate effect a horse not in heat?

One of my trainers wants me to try Regumate with my 5 year old mare after a a very entertaining lesson where she showed off her acrobatic skills. My issue is that she seems to be in anestrous for the winter. I haven't seem her behaving "marish" since the end of October.

So my question is: does regumate effect the horse when it's already not in heat? The trainer said it's "only" $150 a month and works really well, but I don't think that it's really right to blame her behavior all on hormones. She's currently on SmartMare Balance from smartpak and I think it has helped when she is in heat to make her behave about the same as when she's not in heat. So why would Regumate help her?

I think she's just being a young brat and this is just her personality. She is kinda crazy and random

Any ideas or relevant experiences?

My RI has one of her geldings on Regumate and it settled him right down so I don't see why it wouldn't affect a mare that isn't going into heat.

I have no experience with Regumate so I can't speak to it working or not, but for $150 a month I would just ride out the silliness!

I'm thinking that same thing at the moment...

Funny part is that if I gave that money to the vet, then there would be $150 less per month to give the trainer. So, really, he's paying for it!
