UltraCruz® Equine Calming Supplement for Horses

  • May help calm nervous performance horses
  • Can be used for trailering, vet visits, and more
  • Pelletized or paste options for convenience

The UltraCruz® Equine Calming Supplement for Horses is an effective calming supplement for horses that helps reduce environmentally-induced stress. All ingredients in this formula were carefully selected to support focus and calmness in horses. This enhanced formula is provided in the form of easy to use pellets, and is designed for horses that show signs of hyperactivity or nervousness, or horses that are extra responsive to stress in their environment.

Used with Permission from Theresa McCracken.

Introducing UltraCruz® Singles

Pre-measured single servings of your horse's supplements for fast feeding, autoshipped for convenience and accuracy.

  • Convenient, individually packaged servings
  • Retains supplement potency
  • Accurate Dosage
  • Auto-ship available

UltraCruz® Equine Calming Supplement for Horses: Two UltraCruz® Singles packets equals one fresh, pre-measured daily dose.

Pellet vs. Powder Supplement Formulations

Most UltraCruz® Equine Supplements are now available in pelletized formulations. By using pellets, rather than powder, we have been able to:

  • Ensure stability of active ingredients
  • Maximize product freshness
  • Reduce waste

All San Juan Ranch performance and breeding horses use UltraCruz® Equine pelletized products.

Asking a young horse to perform perfectly in the show pen requires a lot of focus from them. We have used the UltraCruz® Equine Calming Formula to help ease their minds and give them the confidence to perform their best. We really appreciate that it helps get them ready to compete without extended time in the loping pen, which helps keep them healthy and sound.

The UltraCruz Equine Calming Formula is amazing for horses when they're away from home or in stressful situations. It's allows them to maintain focus and helps me accomplish more in a shorter training session, as well as helps them relax in the show pen. This overall helps improve chances for success!

I purchased one bag of UltraCruz® Equine Calming Formula to see if it would make a difference in my warmblood mare Lilly's behavior when going off the farm to shows and clinics. The results were super from the first bag, so I wanted to make sure and I purchased a second bag. I can say that I noticed a big improvement in her focus and comfort level when going to shows. This is a horse who loses focus and can call to other horses at shows. She was born at my farm, so nothing bad has ever happened to her, but she is just more fearful than the other horses I have worked with. She is doing very well on maintaining her focus at shows and trusting me, and I have to say that the UltraCruz® Equine Calming Formula has made a big difference and helped her. I highly recommend it.

We had an event week and I put 5 Welsh ponies on the UltraCruz Equine Calming Formula for the duration starting the day before. The ponies consisted of a Stallion, a gelding, a 3 year old mare, a yearling colt, and a yearling filly. I was beyond impressed with the results across the board. All of them were better able to handle the requirements of the event. I can't say enough how impressed I was with the product. The pelleted form makes it much easier to feed and it was well-liked by all 5 ponies. I will for sure continue to use this product in the future!!

We are extremely happy with the results we had from using Santa Cruz products this show season! The UltraCruz® Equine Calming Formula helped ease young horses into the show routines and the UltraCruz® Equine grooming products brought out the best in their coats and left a winning look for all 3 of them! Thank you again!

How quickly does the calming feed take affect? Does it have to be fed for 30 days before seeing results or are the results immediate? Planning a group ride and the calming feed would be wonderful to calm down my mare for the ride. Thanks!

Hello, You may administer this product on an everyday basis if needed. If you are using the supplement for situational use, we recommend administering the product at least 3 days before the stressful event. Depending on the horse, it may take longer to see desired results. Thank you, SCAHealth

Can this be given as 2 scoops in the evening feed, instead of 1 scoop a.m. and 1 scoop p.m.?

Which of your products would work for only giving my horse something to calm him right before running barrels?

Asked by: Lana
Hello! The UltraCruz Equine Calming Supplement is an excellent aid in getting that focus and easing the stress of shows and traveling. However, this product may show different results on each horse, so if the horse is naturally high strung the product may only take the edge off.

Will this help with separation anxiety? Both my horses have anxiety when the other leaves so my intentions would be to feed both 3 days before a competition event when I take only one horse.

Asked by: Dantheman
Hello! This product may help. It is good for helping in environmental stresses like shows. However, you may want to feed before, and then give the horse a double dose right before trailering, we recommend this for very anxious horses. Before starting any supplement you should consult your local veterinarian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We tried the new UltraCruz Equine We tried the new UltraCruz Equine Calming Formula on one of our horses, and WOW, that calming formula is AWESOME! It's even better than what we were using before. We brought our palomino (Pal - he's a rescue horse with a lot of issues) to this weekend's barrel race so he could keep another horse company and the former owner of Pal came over to tell us how amazingly calm and healthy he looked. He used to bite himself on the legs and belly until he would bleed. I told her all about the supplements and she was impressed. Gotta love that stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improves my Stallions attitude and trainability I have been using the UltraCruz Calming formula with my Arabian Stallion Sterling TSultan. Hes a young horse in training and at times can become very amped up and excitable, especially around the Mares. Used regularly it has helped TSultan to remain focused during training sessions and allow him to concentrate on the work at hand, Great Product and I highly recommend it for all horses in training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more worries! This is my 3rd order for the SC Calming Supplement. Purchasing this was an effort to help a young hunter prospect to relax in new surroundings. He acted worried but, maybe distracted, didn’t want to stand still while handling and wouldn’t relax in his stall. I started him on it and wasn’t expecting to get results that this horse showed, it was a week and I noticed he was standing in his stall like the rest of my horses and not continuously moving or acting disrupted. He had his head over the door and was looking for attention with his beautiful soft eyes! After he finished the first bag I hadn’t reordered, I realized ‘Riva’ was starting to go back to his worrying routine. I reordered and in a week on the pellets he was again relaxing. I am thrilled, Riva is happy and so are his stall mates! I have now also added the SC probiotic supplement hoping to help his system heal from worrying and keep him a happy camper! Yay! Another 5 star product from SC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Works! I first began to use this product on my Reiner in May, 2016. The issue was that the first day of an event, he was unsettled in his work. He was worried about signs in the arena, the photographer moving among the stands, just dumb stuff. The second and subsequent days, he would be fine. This is a horse who had earned significant money and loves his job; I just needed something to cool him off the first day. In the past year, I have, without fail, put him on the UltraCruz Equine Calming Formula and it has made a *significant* difference. I begin feeding this to him so that the day we leave, he has been on it for three days. I keep him on his during the event. Even my trainer has been complimentary...my first day's runs are now not throw-aways! .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I started using the UltraCruz Equine Calming pellets in March on my World Champion mare and was so impressed that I started using them on her full sister in August when she came home. I cannot recommend it enough it makes for heavy hauling and training without stress. Both mares have just been so much fun to workwith.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Difference We tried the 20-day bag, feeding as per instructions, on a finished show horse who trains well at home but gets stressed at shows and did not see any difference in her behavior.
