It's supplements not a sedation
Works great on over-reactive horses that need to think about things before reacting.

Didn't Work
When I tried this product, it didn't work for my horse. My horse gets nervous in changing environments, which can be hard to control for show horses, and was hoping for something that would work from the inside out to help training and transitioning progress, but training seems to be the best course of action. No calming supplements have worked for her.

Good product
This product keeps the stress level down for my horses. We use it more as an ulcer preventative than as a "calming" supplement.

Thank you Finish Line!!!
I cannot thank Finish Line enought for Thia-Cal!! I have a 10year old QH gelding that is a rescue and previously abused. In the 2 years I have had him he has made progress with trust but remains super flighty and spooky at the silliest things. I tried many calming supplements but mothing touched him! After many months of failed calming attempts, and reading many reviews I decided in a last ditch effort to try Finish Line's Thia-Cal. Well just finishing the 8 day loading period i worked with him today and he had many many opportunities to spook but DIDN'T!!! It was like he was a different horse!! Will keep him on this for sure!!

Calmer that works at a good price
Tried other expensive calmers that worked for awhile and then had no effect. Thia-Cal has ingredients my vet recommended. Takes the edge of my pony at the 'witching hour' so he is easier to ride.

Worked well
My VERY picky gelding will eat this. He's always been jumpy, but never unmanageable. This seemed to take his edginess away. I ordered a small bottle and he did well enough to commit to order the gallon. He's been off for two weeks, and is jumpy again. Lol. So it was working! Time to reorder.

So far, so good
My 11 yr. old barrel mare is extremely nervous, to the point of getting the hiccups. She has had ulcers in the past. Been using this product for about a month. Went to a big barrel race where warm-up conditions weren't ideal, very crowded. Her behavior wasn't perfect, but was a vast improvement over normal for her. Had a much easier time in the alley, which she hates. Not doing anything else different, so I guess this is working.

Works Great.
My barrel horse would get so tense before a run I could feel his heart beating through the saddle. He would also freeze up at the gate. After one week of using this product, his nerves calmed down enough that he went right into the gate with purpose. The product hasn't made him act drowsy or slow.

Great for Sensitive Horses
Three sensitive horses in our barn are on this. We have seen an improvement in all three. Takes the edge off. Takes a few weeks to kick in but is easy to administer. I bought one of each size so I can use the small one to measure and refill with the gallon.

Works quick and great!
I had previously used an herbal product and saw no results. I reviewed a lot of products before trying Thai-Cal. Noticed a difference in 1 week and significant difference after 2 weeks. Great price with results!

my mare is comes strong heats; this works to calm her around other horses; very important when boarding, around other people, and to keep myself safe

Was recommended by friends who have barrel horses with gait issues and they noticed a huge difference when using this product. They even said they only used it part of one season and haven't had to use it since.
Christine H on Nov 8, 2014
Gave this product a try. We didn't see any difference in the mare.
Kitrina M on Nov 5, 2014
used before on a nervous horse and it worked. Need for a different horse.
CINDY S on Nov 5, 2014
economical supplement for my horses that are spending a lot of time in the stalls. Thought it might keep their systems calmer, healthier, since they are performance horses and I am concerned for them developing ulcer issues.
Pamela A on Sep 5, 2014
I decided to try this product based on costumer reviews and price.
LAURA L on Apr 2, 2014
I love this product. Its the only thing keeping my horse sane on stall rest for the last 6 months. It just takes the stupid out of him but doesn't make him dopey or sleepy.

Can Thia-Cal be used on a daily basis?
Pat M on Mar 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I do with no issues. I found that I didnt have to give my mare as much when she was on it daily to be effective.
Can this be given long term and every day??
A shopper on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes Finish Line Thia-Cal can be given everyday (I saw results in a week, my friends horse took 3 weeks for results), however after giving it to my horse everyday for 3 months, I gave it every other day. This is the ONLY product that works on my horse WITHOUT side effects and DOES NOT make her sleepy. She is a normal horse who is no longer over-reactive on the trail.
Hope this helps
Do you put in their daily food or dose orally with a syringe?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I added to grain, either daily or just before a show. I never used a syringe, though I'm sure you could if that was your preference. My horse had no issue with the taste though.
