Hotrod tends to be a worrier, and he used to spook very easily. He would get tense and was inattentive when there was a lot of commotion going on around him. I started him on SmartCalm® Ultra and within a couple of days I noticed an improvement. He is much more attentive when I’m riding, and he’s willing to approach and investigate things that would’ve been too scary before. He maintains his composure during stressful situations, but doesn’t act dull or sleepy. I am very impressed with SmartCalm® Ultra, and will continue using it.

    Ironically I have an Appaloosa with a lot of AQHA blood,
    named Hotrodders Red Cloud.
    He too is hard to focus and likes to look at everything and worry, worry, worry.
    He was on the regular Smartcalm and it helped some. He just stated the Ultra Smartcalm. Hopefully it will help to worry less about his pasture mates and “monsters” hiding in the bushes.

    Hi, we rescued a horse just a year ago this month! He has been great however it seems that he is an emotional horse! With hot weather, thunder storms, or I should say any change in weather, or even after being worked with or any stress using his brain I guess! If it’s perfect 60 outside and does his usual routine then his bowels are fine! If riden, change in weather- then “plop” loose stool, he will be normal and then not? Our vet said maybe he has IBS! And tells us to do imodium, however I’m not comfortable doing that almost every day and with a wide range of bowels throughout the day! Do you think this product will help! We just started robust mare magic! And he Is on pro biotics as well!

      Hi Leslie,

      A calming supplement may be appropriate, but I would probably try this horse on additional or different digestive support. Prebiotics, enzymes, yeast and other ingredients as well as probiotics may help manage his GI tract. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different products and brands, giving each at least a month to work. For some reason, some horses respond well to one digestive supplement while others do better on a different digestive supplement.

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...
