Meet Kaitlyn, Louie and Ginger

Louie has always had terrible feet. His hooves were soft and he lost shoes on a regular basis. I’ve tried a lot of hoof supplements and SmartHoof is by far the best and the most cost-effective formula I’ve found. My farrier and I have both been really pleased with the quality of his hooves since we started using SmartHoof. In fact, I love the entire SmartSupplements line because the formulas are economical and high quality.

Meet Amanda and Hollywood

A year ago I moved Hollywood from North Dakota to Texas. After the move, I noticed that he was starting to get welts and bug bites everywhere and his eyes were goopy and irritated. The barn was putting on fly spray, but it didn’t seem to be helping. Poor Hollywood was so miserable and uncomfortable that I knew that I had to do something. I went to SmartPak’s website and ordered SmartBug-Off after reading about the different supplements available.

2013 Update: At 26 years old, Bourbon is still on SmartControl IR and still going strong! Although I don’t ride him anymore, I love to watch him trot and canter around the pasture. Thanks to a solid management program developed with my vet (including supplementing with SmartControl IR), he hasn’t had any founder flare ups and his quality of life is great.

Meet Trish and Jack

Jack

My horse Jack was a typical off the track Thoroughbred – tense, nervous and tight-backed. I started him on SmartCalm and noticed a dramatic difference in his behavior.

“Grant is a typical thin-skinned Thoroughbred. Since we first got him last year, he has had skin issues and his coat hasn’t had the healthy sheen that we thought it should. We tried everything and anything that we could find to help his skin and coat with no results…”

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...
