How many do I feed?
All horses & Ponies are different! Some are more anxious than others and may need two bites at a time. It really is down to the individual. Over time, our customers have found they need to use them less as the horse gains confidence and settles more quickly.
Calmer Bites can be fed up to 4 times a day, give one or two an hour before the stressful or excitable situation. They are formulated to help your horse cope better and not over react. A loading dose on first use is recommended for the days leading up to the event, feeding for one or two days beforehand.
Conforming with the FEI Prohibited Substance List, Calmer Bites are a handy treat size bite making them a great addition to the lorry for show days. They can be combined with our daily calming powder Calmer PRO for those who need it.
