Horses that –    Run their race before the start, compete whilst waiting to go into the ring, quiet at home, nervy

and insecure at shows, fizzy on just a bit of grain, erratic, unpredictable behaviour and

sweating heavily, cow pat scours during transport, with “nervy jitters” prior to competition,

drained out performance, shying at just about everything.

All these can lead to poor performance and in many cases worsening of the problem with time.  High grain diets, inexperience and immaturity, abounding fitness and “willingness”, or even “nervous expectation” can contribute to “nervy”, “fizzy” and unpredictable temperament.  For these and numerous other reasons, you may need to consider giving your horse a course of TRANQUIL.


Vitamin B deficiency has been shown experimentally in animals to be associated with increased excitement of the nervous system.  In practice, it has been used in nervous horses for its calming effect.  Over the years, nervous, erratic behaviour has also been associated with a relative deficiency of the mineral magnesium in the diet of horses, especially those on high grain feeds.  Hard work, heavy sweat output all deplete magnesium levels, leading to nervous temperament, stiffness in action and other muscle-related problems that reduce performance.




The ingredients in TRANQUIL as a feed supplement are permitted for use in racing and show horses, even on the day of competition.  The blend of essential B-complex vitamins, with high levels of magnesium, gives TRANQUIL beneficial effects in horses with nervous conditions responsive to higher doses of these essential nutrients.  The combination of vitamin B1, B2, B6 and magnesium also assists in the utilisation of high energy rations and efficient energy use in working muscles.


TRANQUIL contains high levels of a stable form of Vitamin B1, which helps ensure a prolonged potency, even when used as a supplement on an occasional basis.  TRANQUIL contains a high magnesium content to ensure that relative feed deficiencies and depletion of blood levels in nervy, sweaty horses is corrected.




Mix well into feed 15 to 40 g/day when necessary.  If recommended dosage does not produce satisfactory results, increase dose for 3 days and then evaluate.
