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!
