I have a younger TB/Appy mare who has anxiety issues. It was impossible to get her to focus on what i was asking of her, not to mention the spooking (like at her own shadow kinda skitish). She didnt want to hold still when tied up or when i was on her, just being a handful. She also would make nasty faces when being groomed or petted (bad habbit from previous not so good owners). I put her on this and she is a different horse. After the first week it now takes about 1.5 hours to kick in after i feed it to her to kick in. Mellows her out but not druggy or too sluggish. You can feel her want to spook and change her mind, like its not worth it. She also lets me love all over her and enjoys it now. The farrier loves it too as now she stops fidgeting for him! After having my mare on this for a month i suggested it to my mother who has a mare that is great by herself but nasty to other horses if they get close to her. We put her on this for a week and she was a changed girl. Let other horses pass right by her without even flicking a ear and stopped kicking and chasing her pasturemate. The only reason i gave it 4stars is because my horses dont like the flavor. I have to soak their grain with this in it in order to get them to take it. After soaking i dont have a issue with them licking their bowls clean
