Meet Trish, Savannah and Seefari “Sleepy”

sleepy1

When Sleepy came to us, he needed weight, lacked muscle and was in poor condition overall. After determining his specific needs, we decided to start him on SmartFlex Senior to support his joints. In a few short weeks, there was a noticeable difference and in a few months, he was almost unrecognizable from the horse we brought home! When my daughter Savannah started riding Sleepy in recognized events, we switched him to SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets to keep him going strong. Sleepy and Savannah have become an amazing team, moving up to Training Level and winning their second-ever Training event at Poplar Place Horse Trials! I can truly say that SmartSupplements have helped get these two where they are today. Thanks SmartPak!

Meet Kari and Sunday

Sunday

Last winter, Sunday hurt herself in the pasture. We were unsure about whether she would have a competitive career in her future, which was devastating news. I scoured the Internet to find anything that could help support the healing process and came across SmartFlex Rehab Pellets. After reading the ingredients and the success stories from other horse owners, I decided to give it a try. Since Sunday started on the supplement, she has seemed more comfortable. My vet is very happy with her progress and is optimistic about her returning to a normal workload in time.

Meet Alaina and Tonka

Tonka-after-his-bath

I’ve had Tonka since he was three months old, so I can honestly say I have tried a lot of products, shampoos, and conditioners to support his skin and coat. After doing a lot of research on supplements, I found SmartOmega 3 and decided to give it a try. Since he started on the supplement, he has grown a smooth, shiny coat, and I’ve been much happier with the condition of his skin.

Meet Erin and Lexi

lexi

Before Lexi started on SmartOmega 3 a year ago, she lacked the luster of a completely healthy coat. Within two weeks of starting on the supplement, her coat really started to blossom. Now she is slick and shiny and has an overall healthy appearance. This is a superb all around supplement that I think every horse should be on!

Meet Michelle and “Beaker”

beaker

At the beginning of the year, Beaker entered reining training, and I decided that it was time to start him on a supplement to support digestive health and help manage the stress that can come from training and traveling. I chose SmartDigest Ultra because it had all of the ingredients that I was looking for, including yeast. The bonus of the supplement is ColiCare, SmartPak’s colic surgery reimbursement program. I love having the peace of mind that I may be eligible for $7500, of colic surgery reimbursement should I ever need it.

Peek in Our Paks – Katie T.

EventingImage_KT

I began riding when I was in 5th grade and have been hooked since. Growing up as a kid I was always at the barn doing stalls, cleaning tack, and taking care of any horse that needed a little extra TLC. I was an avid Pony Clubber competing in the hunters, jumpers, and equitation as well as dressage and eventing.

Juliet came into my life a year and a half ago. She was a school pony but was not quite working out (she likes to scoot at anything out of the ordinary). She has a lot of personality in a little package. Juliet is one of the sweetest mares who LOVES attention and thinks she’s pretty cute. Over the last year we’ve been competing in small dressage and 2-phase events with the hope of doing some eventing soon.

Meet Jennifer and Presumido HU

presumidoHU

I bought Presumido HU two years ago for his natural dressage talent and attractiveness. I started him on SmartDigest Ultra because training and competing can be stressful and I worry about his digestive health. Since he started on the supplement he has been eating well, has had no digestive upset, and maintains an excellent body condition. I like SmartDigest Ultra so much that we are putting all of our competition horses on it!

Meet the SmartPakers

Jen and Tally
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...
