Meet Jennifer S & Dante from Topsfield, MA

My name is Jennifer, and I am the proud new owner of a wonderful 25 year old Grey QH named Dante. We live in Topsfield, MA and Dante is boarded very close to my home with 5 other horses. Our story is very special because I first met him as a half- lease in late July for my lessons at a local barn. His owner, who had previously rescued him, could no longer afford to keep him at the facility due to financial limitations. I was heartbroken to think that he may be moved or given away, since I had already fallen in love with this sweet gelding

I certainly couldn’t bear to see him go anywhere else or possibly even further away than he already was. So in October, the only thing I could do was to look around for someplace I could afford on my own so I could pay his board myself. I think fate brought us together, because I quickly found an open spot at an affordable barn less than 3 miles from my home with many acres of land, and his owner gave him to me as a free lease. I am so blessed to have him in my life! As Dante’s new owner and best buddy, I felt at 25 years old he deserved a little bit of TLC when it comes to his aging body and old stifle injury. He would now be moving around in very large paddocks with room to run and play with his new and much younger barn-mates, and let me tell you how much change I saw in him in just one month! We are going on our 3rd month of SmartPaks which includes SmartFlex Senior, Farrier’s Formula and newly added to our paks is Mega-Cell for extra vitamins and minerals. This old boy is playing and trotting around to his heart’s content, and his coat is shiny, thick and soft. His overall energy and vigor really shows. He also never used to whinny at me and now he’s so outgoing, talkative and just plain happy, especially when we hit the trails! He just can’t wait to trot and canter and I can tell he’s having fun and has also shown much less stiffness. I know he definitely feels good and I also know I am making it easier for my boarder to make sure he gets the dosage he needs with SmartPaks. There’s no fuss for her and he just gobbles it all up! Thank you SmartPak for making a lucky, new horse owner very happy! I know with these supplements Dante will have many, many more healthy senior years ahead of him!

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
