Formulated to maintain & support:
Calm & Collected for horses, ponies and donkeys is formulated to maintain and support:
Calm & Collected is a dry supplement containing herbs such as chamomile and valerian to help maintain a healthy nervous system in horses of all ages. Its liquid equivalent, Calm & Collected Gold, is often used first due to its quicker initial absorption (we do not suggest you give both together). If you find your horse becoming tense or nervous, try to pinpoint any areas which may have caused this including lack of turnout or too much heating feed.
If your horse is on pro-longed box rest, due to an injury, our Rest & Recover Gold might be more appropriate to use. For mares affected more by their seasons, consider our Easy Mare range instead.
If you have any concerns about your animal's health please contact your vet immediately. If you have any queries about using this product, or if your animal is pregnant, please contact our Helpline 0800 052 3672 (Freephone) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the herbs used in this product is Valerian (Valeriana officinalis). Valerian is adored by both cats and mice. In the old days, when there was an apothecary or herbalist on every street, the herbs were often stored in wooden drawers in a large sideboard. It was said that you could always tell the valerian drawer because it would be rubbed shiny by the apothecary cat rubbing up against it and polishing the wood with its body. It is also suggested that the Pied Piper of Hamelin used valerian to entice the mice and rats to follow him out of the town.
I bought Calm and Collected for my 14-year-old mare just to give her some help before sending her away for some training, just because the travel and a strange new environment was bound to have a bit of an impact. She is well mannered and easy to handle, so it might seem an odd choice, but I am a firm believer in the power of herbs. I have to say, I am amazed at how chilled out she has become. Some of this is the confidence she has gained in training, but I have no doubt she was able to excel because she was so relaxed. Back at home, she is super calm about being in the barn by herself when I tack up, which was something that made her anxious before and needed a haynet to distract her. She feels so much softer when I ride. I'd thoroughly recommend you try this; I reckon it took 4 weeks of the dried herb to start to have an impact and then it was all plain sailing. I am just about to order more because I'm really enjoying the improved version of my lovely pony!

Absolutely love calm and collected, it has made a real difference to my mare this winter on limited turnout, she is so much more happier and relaxed in herself. It did, as it says, take at least 4 weeks to get into her system and for me to see a difference, but what a difference, its worth the wait to see the results :). Plus riding out she seems so much less 'on edge' and content, what would usually have been a huge over reaction to a monster in the bushes is now so much more manageable :) thank you!

I am a herbalist, using lots for me, hubby and a little for my 7 rehomed abused ponies. I tried the Calm & Collected supplement and I cannot believe what a good balance you have in yours. THANK YOU. My Welsh mare was so wild and traumatised she had to be darted from a rifle to catch her, she even broke a vets leg! I was really worried and then bought a tub of your product. I canâ€™t believe how well it is working, I can get her into a pen for feeding, she takes treats from my hand and yesterday I rubbed her nose twice. Trust me, this is a huge breakthrough. I am a lifelong fan now and will continue working with Snowy with a view to getting strangers like the farrier to be able to approach her. I will always buy this product, please do not discontinue it.... ever! Babs Bufton.... and the Magnificent 7

After a fright with a motorbike and other instances my shetland stallion had become completely unmanageable even turning him out was a struggle. In the past had tried other calmers with no effect but bought Calm And Collected over a month ago and within ten days I could see a difference. Now I have my sweet pony back who is calm and not at all dangerous he may even continue with being broken to carriage that is what a miracle this product has been! thanks!

Being of the older generation i am not easily convinced about much! My story starts when i bought a 5 year old mare from the sales at Malvern! Boy was she Quirky!When i was putting in an order for herbs i noticed the special needs link and found Tempramend ( Calm & Collected) for sensitive horses, I ordered it and it arrived quickly. I started feeding it straight away. She did a Walk trot dressage test recently and won it and got 76%!!! Now I'm Hooked. totally different Horse! cant thank you enough...Sue

Last summer my pony Tequila moved from the south of France, where we used to live, up to Lincolnshire UK. It was a very long journey and my main concern was that she was undoubtedly going to be very anxious. About three weeks before our departure, I started giving her Temperamend ( Calm & Collected) Tequila can be a little fussy and I was concerned as to whether or not she would eat it but, presumably because it must taste as good as it smells (the smell actually made me feel relatively calm myself), she ate it up with enthusiasm. She arrived very safely and very happily in England. The transport company said she was really calm and relaxed throughout the whole journey and that is thanks, to a large extent, to this product.
