Emily, my eight year old Appendix Quarter Horse mare, suffered a deep digital flexor tendon injury and was put on stall rest with no turnout. Her outlook was good, but we were facing a 12+ month road to recovery. Though Emily was eventually eased back into work, being confined to her stall 23 hours a day left her antsy and anxious, with too much energy. After researching many calming supplements, we ultimately chose SmartCalm Ultra Pellets for its many benefits and top ingredients. After only a couple of days, Emily was more manageable and easier to ride. Within a week, she was back to her normal, well-behaved self! Though her projected recovery was at least 12 months, Emily was just given the all clear to go back into full work, including jumping, after only nine months! I believe the SmartFlex® III Resilience Pellets (formerly SmartFlex Repair Pellets) we’ve fed her during her recovery has played a role in this. For her to be back jumping is just amazing. She’ll be on SmartFlex® III Resilience Pellets forever. Thanks, SmartPak!
