My horse is a sixteen year old Arabian who still acts like a baby. On a relaxed day, my horse preforms amazingly, but more often than not, he is tense, looky, and jumpy, at home and in the show ring. He’s always on the look out for something to eat him which results in him being tense and jumping at the subtlest movements. Some things he couldn’t care less about and other things he literally acts like he is in immediate threat. While I would like to put more time in the saddle and work him into being calmer, I’m a full time student/employed, so I’ve looked to supplements for some assistance. I’m currently between four – SmartCalm, SmartCalm Ultra, Smart Tranquility, and Quiessence, and I have considered Perfect Prep for show mornings (he is a wreck on the trailer, comes off dripping sweat after twenty minutes on a dewey, chilly morning).
Any guidance or input for supplements would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
