I used Good As Gold Paste on a young horse who was a little stressed travelling and used to paw. When I travelled him to Holland recently, I tried him on ½ a syringe the night before and ½ a syringe the morning of the travel. He ever pawed the duration of the trip, and ate and drank well. I used it on the return journey also to great success.

I tried the paste on three different horses with excellent results. Having tried Perfect Prep, Omega Alpha's Equine Chill, a powder called Relaxme and numerous other calming supplements, we can definitely say that no other showed the calming effects of the Good as Gold paste.
