Within a few weeks, I started to see him change.
I got my gelding two years ago from a rough situation. He was bursting at the seams with anxiety and acting out, but he’d been living such a hard life that it was understandable. I brought him home thinking that some good nutrition, turnout and training would get him sorted out. I gave him all those things and way more, but he was never able to get his brain on track to function like a normal horse. We made virtually no progress in his training in two years, and he lived with such a high degree of stress about everything in his daily life that I constantly felt bad for him and we were both miserable. He was anxiety ridden at his best and downright dangerous at his worst. I thought about selling him many times when the frustration was too much, but I knew I couldn’t get him into any type of good home with the way he was, and despite all his issues, I didn’t want to give up on him. I tried endless amounts of vets, medications, supplements and training methods, trying to find something that could help him be a happier horse and function normally. He would have a couple of good days here or there and I would get my hopes up, but we always ended up back in the same place at square one. Nothing worked. Everyone told me that it’s simply who he is and he wasn’t going to change, but it didn’t sit right with me. A few months ago, I started him on MagRestore and Focus from Performance Equine Nutrition. He has been on other supplements with magnesium in that didn’t help, but this one claimed to be different, so I gave it a shot. Within a few weeks, I started to see him change. His anxiety level started to drop, his eye started to soften, his reaction time to stimuli started to slow. He is now two months in, and I don’t even recognize him as the same horse anymore. The change in him is unreal, in every aspect of his life, and I wouldn’t believe it if I wasn’t seeing it with my own eyes. I am so thankful to have finally found something that is helping him, and he is a happy horse now. He has made more progress in the last two months since being on MagRestore than he has in the last two years and is learning to relax and enjoy his work. I think he will always be a sensitive type of horse and struggle with certain things, but he is now much more trainable and most importantly, content. I’m over the moon with him! Thank you Carla for all the time you have spent talking to me about how best to help him, and for your product that has changed my horse’s life! Amazing company and product!
