Mollie-and-F-1-thumb

Claire-and-Gracie-thumb

“My mare, Grace Kelly, and I have had many years of competing successfully in Jumpers and Eventing. Last September, I found out that Gracie had a softball size bladder stone that required surgery to remove. A few days later she was kicked in the field and broke her hind splint bone in two places, requiring further surgery. After her long recovery time, I started Gracie back to work…”

Meet Eileen and Monte

Eileen-and-Monte3

“Monte used to have a lot of trouble holding his shoes. The farrier called his feet “shelly”, as they cracked around the nail holes and constantly chipped. I hadn’t had him long at the time and I was concerned about keeping him shod and sound…”

Meet Nicki and Al

Meet-Nicki-and-Al-thumb

“I began a search for quality dog food after the disastrous debacle of detecting melamine in several brands of dog foods sold in the US, including the brand we were feeding to our Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Millie and Al. We were also looking to find a prepackaged dog food that would allow Millie and Al’s sitter to feed them the proper amount of food without any guesswork involved…”

“Ali is an off the track thoroughbred who I adopted from a local rescue in the summer of 2011. When I first got her, she had the gangly build of a young filly with little muscling and tone…”

Meet Meg, Aimee and Obsession – 2012 Update

MegAimeeOrion2012Thumb

In 2010, after a winter of showing in Florida, Orion’s owners noticed he’d lost interest in his feed, which was really out of character. They immediately had him scoped by the vet, who confirmed gastric ulcers…

Meet Rachael and Jacob

Rachael-and-Jacob-thumb

I have had Jacob since he was a puppy. He has always had really dry, flaky skin, and had trouble growing hair. I used fish oil capsules for a few years and switched him to a high quality food, but this did not help his skin condition. Finally, 1 year ago I started him on SmartCanine Skin & Coat. I chose this because I have had great experience with SmartSupplements for my horse and really have grown to trust them…

Meet Charissa and Joel

Charissa-and-Joel-thumb

I saw a free trial for SmartOmega 3, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try it – well, I love it! After just a month, my horse’s coat started to look slick and shiny. A year later, his coat is still shiny, and now the color is deeper and richer than ever…

Meet Libby and Hot Rockin Potential – 2012 Update

Meet-Libby-&-Sonny-thumb

Back in 2010, Libby noticed Sonny’s behavior starting to change. Normally a calm and cool show horse, Sonny seemed stressed and worried, which was really out of character. On a friend’s recommendation, Libby decided to give SmartGut a try and pretty soon Sonny was back to his old self — relaxed and confident in and out of the show ring…

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...
