Mare Magic???

Im curious what people think about Mare Magic or other natural mellowing substances? I have a 7 year old rescue that's been under saddle for about 4-5 months now. He is still a bit nervous and always seems like he has anxiety about everything. Over the last few weeks he has gotten better. Just curious if anyone has used it and if it helped... Or if its just a matter of continue working with him? Thanks.

I tried Mare Magic on my Nervous Nelly Arabian Mare but did not see any difference in her.

I have used Mare Magic on a couple of mares with very positive results. I was not using it for nervousness, but for calming my mares that came in HARD heat. For that, it did very well. I don't know about nerves, though.

I don't know that I have seen or heard of anyone using Mare Magic on a gelding or stud either for that matter.

I also did not see any difference when she went into heat either. She goes into HARD Heat as well. Glad it worked for you girl, Little Mare

I know you can use it in geldings, but be aware that the ingredients are targeted towards the cramping associated with a mare being in heat. Because of that I would personally be wary of how well it would actually work as a calming agent overall.

I used it on a VERY mare-ish mare a few years ago and it did help a little, but I didn't feel like it was so much of a difference that I would keep spending money on it.

I bought raspberry leaves from a local health food store and they worked with my cranky mare with great results.

Mare Magic is given to a 22 year old gelding where I board. He has mellowed out a lot since being put on it (only about 2 months ago.)

The more I have read the more I'm wondering if I just need to try a dietary supplement that is high in Magnesium. Has anyone ever tried a magnesium supplement? The mare magic just seemed pretty harmless since its Raspberry leaves.. Thanks for everyones input! Greg

I tried it for a bit. I found that good ground work and desensitizing works much better. (This is only my opinion) products like this sell because people today either don't have the time, skills, or patients to do the work need to deal with the non-perfect horse. If my horse acts up do to nerves or heat cycles I turn up the work to get her attention back... MOVE THE FEET, they are the key to the brain. If all the big name trainers that sell multi hundred dollar DVD sets preach this one thing nearly the same there must be something to it.
