A pioneering solution to calming stressed or anxious horses is being launched in the UK.

Chillax has been developed to solve the problem of stress or nervousness in competition horses and contains no prohibited substances.

Chillax is a nutritional supplement which will calm and focus horses within 60-90 minutes and has been used to great effect by professional and amateur competitors. It enables horses to compete with a higher level of focus and performance.

It is being launched in the UK by animal health specialist Vet-Way who have been appointed sole distributor.

Vet-Way Managing Director Kara Franklin, an amateur show jumper and eventer, said:” We are very excited about Chillax as at last we have found  a horse-calmer that works for all types of horse rather than concentrating on those animals with a magnesium deficiency.

“Chillax provides a safe, reliable and fast acting method of calming horses and has already won acclaim from international competitors.”

Chillax is a scientifically designed nutritional supplement containing a blend of fast absorbing chelated magnesium combined with marine and dairy peptides.

These natural peptides help restore the chemical balance to the central nervous system allowing the horse to provide a fully focused performance.

Marine peptides are found in several species of fish and shellfish and scientists believe they could have a major impact on animal and human health. Dairy peptides help build serotonin which lowers stress levels.

Chillax is winning plaudits from a range of top competitors including jockey David Mullins who won last year’s Grand National on 33-1 shot Rule The World.

“We have used Chillax on frisky two year olds with great success,” said David. “It has worked really well and much more effective than other calmers that we have tried.”

Olympic equestrian gold medallist Phillip Dutton has also been impressed by the results from using Chillax.  Phillip, who has won two Olympic golds and bronze while competing for the USA, said: “Chillax is the best product on the market today by far to keep my horses focused and confident when competing .”

Chillax has also been successfully trialled by international show jumper and respected competition horse breeder Marion Hughes of Kilkenny.

Marion, who represented Ireland in the 2004 Olympics, said: “Chillax really helps my more excitable horses to relax and keep their mind on their job without compromising on their reactivity that is required for world class show jumping.”

Event rider and BHS Instructor Emily Bradshaw has also been impressed by Chillax.

“I used Chillax on my sharp thoroughbred, an Intermediate BE Event horse.  He would normally be very tense and tight in a Dressage test environment but became very ride-able during our last outing,” said Emily who runs a riding school and livery yard at Fordham,Colchester.

“It took the edge off his nerves without sedating him. I was very impressed with the Chillax product, not only did we win our last class, but he felt much more relaxed and focused!”

Chillax has been developed to be simple to use and pleasant for horses to take with an apple flavoured solution administered orally or mixed with feed.
