Calming pastes

My horse can get very high strung while trailering. I will be moving her to a facility about half an hour from where I am currently boarding, and I am wondering if a calming paste (like Composure) would be a good idea to use to keep her chill for the trailer ride. I don't know much about pastes like this, so I was hoping to get some feedback from people who have used it or know more about it.

I would use it! I would even consider using something with L-tryptophan, like B-Kalm. I myself have used Quietex, which has the herb Valerian. Some people think herbs are more effective, but I would say either L-tryptophan OR herbal ingredients would be your best bet. Most of these take anywhere from 2-8 hours to kick in, so I would definitely plan accordingly.
