On the Fox Den Equine website I noticed that they had a calming product called Equanimity which contains Theanine. What have you heard about using Theanine on horses? Is it safe, effective, or legal on the horse show circuit?

How did you locate this forum?

Re: Theanine

Hello Andrea,

I have not personally used it but I have heard good things about it. It is safe to use and legal at horse shows.

All the best,
