Ever wish you could take a sneak peek inside our horses’ SmartPaks? Now you can! Check out the supplements we love, for the animals we adore.

This Month’s Pick

Staff Member: Marisa C.
Department: Customer Care
Horse: Bug
Discipline: Dressage

I started riding when I was 8 years old. After watching my cousin’s riding lesson, I went home and begged my parents to let me ride, too! I rode hunt seat for a few years and then became hooked on dressage.

Bug is a 17-year-old Warmblood/Quarter Horse cross. I have had her for about 10 years, and she has been a fantastic horse who has been everywhere with me and done a little bit of everything. She is such a willing and fun horse to be around. Her breeder named her Bug because when she was a foal she was a little bugger, grabbing things like brooms from the barn and running away with them! I predominately ride dressage with Bug, but it is her dream to be a hunter. We also enjoy exploring the trails and going to clinics as well as the occasional show.

Bug’s SmartPak

SmartFlex Senior Pellets

SmartFlex® Senior Pellets

As Low As: $35.95
(970 reviews)
SmartFlex® III Resilience

As Low As: $58.95
(183 reviews)

Bug was on SmartFlex III Resilience for several years to help keep her joints healthy. When she turned 17 and switched to a lighter workload, I decided that changing her over to a senior joint supplement made sense. The combination of glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid, Devil’s Claw, and MSM in SmartFlex Senior Pellets is perfect for her. Even though she is seventeen, everyone thinks that she moves like she is seven, and I credit that to the awesome joint support that she has had over the years!

SmartHoof Pellets

SmartHoof® Pellets

As Low As: $19.95
(355 reviews)

Like many horses who live outside, Bug is constantly walking around and stomping at flies during fly season. I always keep her on a hoof supplement so that she maintains great feet. I love that SmartHoof comes in a pellet because I know that she will eat all of it happily. Now Bug’s healthy hooves are one less thing that I have to worry about!

SmartVite EZ Keeper Grass Pellets

SmartVite EZ Keeper Grass Pellets
SOLD OUT
(172 reviews)

Bug currently lives on pasture and is an easy keeper, so she does not require a full ration of grain. I love SmartVite EZ Keeper Grass Pellets because they provide all of the vitamins and minerals that she needs every day.

DMG by SmartPak

DMG by SmartPak

As Low As: $12.85
(64 reviews)

Bug gets DMG by SmartPak because she is prone to muscle discomfort, especially in her hind end. She has been on DMG for about a year now and it really seems to be helping her. She seems happier with less stiffness while warming up, and she even seems more comfortable out in her pasture.

Why Marisa Uses SmartPaks

I love SmartPaks and have used them for many years. I like how Bug’s supplements stay fresh, and I never have to worry about reordering them. There are about 16 horses at the barn where Bug lives, so having her supplements in SmartPaks saves her wonderful caretakers the hassle of having to scoop everything. I loved the convenience of SmartPaks when I was in college as well because Bug and I were always moving from school to home and vice versa. It was really easy to just change the shipping location so they would be waiting for us when we arrived!

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...
