When my mare is in heat, she acts peppy and irritable. Any tips on how to chill her out?

My mare La la turns into a demon when she's in heat. She is on a mare supplement from smartpack.
Depo!! Works like a charm:)
Feed 'no more moods'. Works great with my stroppy mare.
Lunging is always good
My mare dose to
Thanks Everyone for the tips! It helps a lot.
Calm and conditioning in her feed. Its on the procey side but it definatley works as i have a mare and when shes in heat shes very irritable and i use this to help and it really does 😭😁
I use a towel dampened with some cold water under my horses saddleblanket when the get to hot. Lunging before also works well but maybe be inconvenient.
Walk to run she is still furred up
I would use an extra supplement (either to control the hormones or to control the energy) and that should do the trick. but if you don't want to feed her anything extra, I would just suggest trying to turn her out into a paddock/pasture at night or lunge her a few minutes before each ride. I know it sounds annoying and a bit exhausting, but it pays off. my mare had the same issue, and i gave her the extra supplements and the extra turnout/lunge and she was exceptionally better on the ground and while riding. hope this helps 😊
Make sure to lunge her alot before you ride to get all the energy out of her :)
