Med-Vet Magnesium
A vet suggested giving magnesium to an ex race horse I have that can't seem to remember anything. He will spook at the same jump time after time like he's never seen it before. He also had trouble doing clean changes. After the Mg, he seems much more mindful of things he has seen before...but the most amazing thing is he now has automatic clean changes.

I use this to help calm my horses. It also helps relax tights muscles and help reduce the chance of founder and cresty neck in horses prone to this condition.

Horse eats it up, stopped his muscle twitches within days!
When I brought my new TWH home, I observed he had pretty bad muscle twitching at times, a common sign of magnesium deficiency. I ordered this product after careful research, and I'm extremely happy with it! Within days my horses tremors completely disappeared! And have never returned! He never batted an eye at the taste, ate it right up! I highly recommend this product!

Love this supplement
Love this supplement for my OTTBs. Now with any supplement, you have to give it 6 weeks to get into their body and make a change. My chestnut mare OTTB went from a fire cracker off the track, (of coarse with training as well) to a very sweet, willing to work and driven mare. I also have another OTTB big 16.3 gelding that was angry all the time, crabby and I believe body sore. After a few months on magnesium it has turned him around to a willing to work partner.The only thing I do not agree with with Horse.com is when I earn a coupon, like 30% off...Don't just take 3% off my purchase.... Totally not far and may make me shop for this product elsewhere even if I have to pay a bit more because of untrue discounts

Helps with appetite under stressful competitions. I have seen a difference in my horses. A healthy/full gut leads to diminished ulcers.

My mare has pssm and requires a magnesium supplement. I like this pelleted version, mostly because she eats it and it works.

My horse is "sensitive"... skin and muscles are super twitchy. Supplement was suggested by person who does body work on him. Tremendous improvement!

I heard that Magnesium can calm "hot" horses.

Is this used in cushings, I have a 9 yr old min and have read this could help?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought the Magnesium 5000. My Arab mare had a swollen hock it was arthritis I was giving her another product and it had Glucosamine in it plus all the other thing to help with joints, she then foundered on her left front, it was from the injury on the right rear hock. They tested her for cushings and was on the edge, I read an artical that a horse with cushings should not take Glucosamine so I started giving her Magnesium 5000. I believe it is helping her, but not sure if it is helping the cushings until I have another blood test this spring. Hope this was helpful.
Can this be fed once daily?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I feed it to my older mares, once per day. They handle it just fine. My two competitive horses get theirs broken up with two feedings since they get grain twice a day.
