OptiMax is a happy hormone releasing amino acid (tryptophan) to make your horse grow in confidence. OptiMax is best used in stressful environments i.e. at competitions.
Please use the scoop enclosed. Every horse is different and therefore, levels of OptiMax needed may vary. Start by feeding one measure. Double the amount fed if there is no effective or lower the amount fed if effect is too strong until a balance is found. Best results should be seen on the 3rd day of feeding OptiMax.
OptiMax is best used strategically and ideally 45 minutes before stress or excitement. Top up during the day if needed. OptiMax can be mixed into a paste and syringed or simply added to dampened feed.

One of our horses is wary of new environments and particularly indoor schools. I tried a low dose of Optimax for 3 days before a flatwork session at an unfamiliar arena. However, the weather took a turn for the worst and we had to go indoors to school. Hail battered on the roof, thunder and lightening, doors rattling. Normally he would have been unridable. Although he was naturally concerned, there was no panic. I could stay mounted, pause and calm him and we could continue. Optimax helped him over a huge hurdle and the next visit to the same arena was a pleasure, for him and me. He was confident and worked beautifully. I would definitely use Optimax again for a stressy horse in "first time" or challenging situations.
