Drugging a horse?

There was mention on another thread that there is a drug similar to ace that doesn't cause the drowsiness and calms a horse for a couple weeks. Is there really such a thing?

not that I know of... they have ace granules that you can feed to take the edge off daily... but other than that.... not really any "drugs" I know of like ace that would do that.

A lot of the Arabian breeders/trainers I know of who are looking for an easy way out use Quietex on their horses and it seems to do the trick of calming a horse down. Personally, dealing with hot, flighty horses myself, I would just lunge your horse or let your horse out to run for as long as he'll keep going on his own steam, then ten minutes past that point for three days. On the fourth day he'll have energy but he'll feel content and well worked and shouldnt be a problem. I only suggest happy-pills if you're shipping a prancy horse long distance.

Just to clarify, I am NOT wanting to drug a horse. I am only asking if there is such a thing because I suspect my mare was drugged when I bought her.

nothing like that works for weeks. It would have to be time released, which we don't have the technology for.

there is something [cant remember what its called] that you can give your horse that is a long term [about 30day] sedative. Its more for if they are on stall rest though
