Hey! I used Good as Gold from TRM, it's natural so it's not dopping!
It really works, I recently used on a mare that was driving me crazy, she wasn't letting me teach her nothing because she wasn't paying attention.. now I don't need it anymore, she's working just fine!
I used in competition horses too and it worked really well, specially on the young ones!
Hope it helps
I keep seeing people say essential oils, they are great for calming! BUT... if you are planning on going to horse shows where they do drug tests (sanctioned by FEI, EC,USEF,ect...) , almost every essential oil will test positive so use at your discretion!
I use a drug free, non transdermal, self adhesive calming patch. I love it for shows and riding as it cams the mind, but keeps the body ready to work. Never sluggish or slow feeling. Works for about 12-24 hours! if you want to know more send me an email [email protected]
Rescue remedy works really well and it's natural! You have to be careful with essential oils some Are very toxic to animals! I know lavender and peppermint are extremely toxic to cats... Not sure if it's the same for a horse, but I would do some research before just using them!
Essential oils work really well for us. Lavender is big one. You can put some on your hand and let them smell/lick it. Some horses like some while others don't, you'll have to play around. Look up calming oils and see what you can find :)
My opinion on calming supplements is that they should not be used and are not fair. If the source of the issue is the stomach or possibly ulcers, I highly recommend ulcer guard and platinum performance gastric support.
