Meet Jessica and Tempo

Name: Tempo
Breed: Pony of the Americas
Age: 20
Discipline: Hunter/Jumper
Owner: Jessica Sutcliffe

“Tempo has always been sensitive to bugs, and last summer was a particularly bad bug season because of the mild winter. Fly spray wasn’t enough to keep him comfortable, so I looked for an insect control supplement to start him on. Since I’ve been happy with the SmartSupplements I’ve used in the past, I decided to try SmartBug-Off first. I noticed a difference in Tempo shortly after starting him on the supplement. The flies seemed to flock to him less, and I noticed he wasn’t stamping as much when he was outside and he wasn’t as itchy, especially around his sheath where the flies often bit him. He was extremely happy and much more comfortable when outside and while in his stall during the spring and summer months.”

Why Jessica Uses SmartPaks

“The entire SmartPaks system is just insanely innovative and convenient. I love that it is so easy to add a new supplement when needed. The AutoShip feature is great, especially for those of us with busy lives! I also appreciate that everything is pre-measured so I don’t have to worry about him not getting the right amount. It’s convenient that they come pre-packaged because I don’t have to worry about animals getting into supplement buckets or the freshness of my supplements being compromised. I plan on always using the SmartPaks system for any horse that I own, and SmartSupplements will always be the first ones that I turn to.”

  2. Cindy Chandler says:

    Would these work well with a pregnant mare? I worry about what effect’s everything will have on her foal. Thanks

    • SmartPak SmartPak says:

      Hi Cindy – Thanks for your question. It’s important not to make abrupt changes to the diet and management of pregnant mares. For this reason we always recommend seeking your veterinarian’s advice before adding any new supplements to your mare’s diet. SmartCalm Ultra Pellets, like many other supplements, has not been specifically evaluated for use in breeding animals, therefore we suggest following your vet’s advice on feeding this supplement.

    I just wanted to pop in and say HI, I used to ride Tempo back in the day when he was at Willow Pond Farm! He was one of my FAVORITE ponies and it’s so good to see him doing so well with an owner who loves him!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Allison! That’s so coincidental that you used to ride him. He has been with me for about 6 years now, and I moved him from WPF in 2008, so I’m not sure if you and I have met. He is a very special pony, and I am glad he was one of your favorites! I decided to retire him a few years ago due to back issues, but he is enjoying life as a retired pony and spends his days eating grass and hay and being one of the friendliest ponies at our barn. He also is a great companion and teacher to my 3 year old horse, Sprite.

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...
