Husband horse is an arab, and is just go-go-go all the time. Even with tons of lunging or round pen, he still is just adgetated. I'd love to give him something to just take the edge off while husband and him work together. (Horse has been left out for about 2 yrs with only 2-3 rides a year.)
They do great together, and he is far from 'crazy'. But I'd like something to just get him to calm down a bit. I use smartpak equine supplements. Would just their basic calmer work or be enough? Thoughts?

I have tried them all, and the one that works best for my arab is Quietex, the powder. SmartPak - Search
Let me elaborate as to why...the smartcalm has to be fed daily and I didn't see a difference at all.
Quietex can be fed as needed. :)

Can the quietex be fed daily in small doses?
|spookychick13 ||10-24-2011 02:54 PM |
Yep, I do it daily because I try to work with my horse daily, however you can do it as needed as well. :)

Barn buddy has her TB on ultracalm supplements, and it seems to work on him well, so I was torn as to which one to use. Do you think the mare supplements would take the edge off?
|spookychick13 ||10-24-2011 03:00 PM |
I tried smartcalm and it did NOTHING to my arab at all. Nor does the mare magic.
I have also used the expensive one...Confidence Plus...and he was ok on that, but it made him itchy.
Quietex was the best for me.

Ok, thanks :) I'll see what I can do w/ it :) My supplement pack is suppose to be here this week. So debating on getting it in single doses, or waiting till next month.

Ohhh, good idea!

This is the same mentality that has all our kids sitting in school drugged because they , Oh god forbid, act like kids. Try some ground work and exercise.
