You can use the tube to measure the correct dose for your horse's body weight. Squeeze the paste onto your horses feed.

Here are what some horse owners have told us they do:

"I squeeze the proper dose onto their feed and let them eat 1/3 before loading into the trailer and travelling to where we are riding, a few handfuls before exercise to line their gut with the pectin from the Stress Paste and provide betaine and amino acids for their muscles and hydration - then they get the rest of the meal once they have cooled down after their exercise, before we travel home. This is a nice way to provide full support for low stress days when the horses don't need a calming dose, but I want them to feel fantastic and bounce back fast." - Huia

"My horses really like the taste - I literally squeeze the dose onto my palm and they eat it up!" - Rachel

"I like the tubes; it's ready to go wherever I am" - Ashra

Dealing with stress from the inside

Stress from travelling, extreme weather, stabling, illness and competition can result in horses not eating, drinking, performing or resting normally.

This can contribute to a vicious cycle which can seem impossible to stop, and unfortunately often happens when you need your horse to perform most.

A concentrated, non-swabbable formula, Stress Paste is designed to help your horse cope before, during and after stress and keep your horse eating and hydrated with well protected muscles.

“Eventing involves travel, high level performance and often competing in hot, humid conditions.

Stress Paste before travel and after competition has been a game changer."

“My two mares are very nervous travellers. On a 5.5hr trip I decided to give Stress Paste before and we all travelled so much better.

Will be using this on all long trips in the future.”

“I love Stress Paste! We use it to travel our fellow who stresses about loading and travelling to a new place.

Normally he wouldn’t be happy in the trailer and not eat. Since Stress Paste he is an absolute pleasure to take out. It doesn’t dumb down his work which we like.”

Are The Effects Of Stress On Your Horse All Too Familiar?

If you are planning to travel, compete, or experience extreme weather conditions, your horse is no doubt under a higher level of stress. 

This stress impacts his gut and in turn his appetite, behaviour and performance.

Stress Paste helps protect from stress events, ensuring a healthy appetite, hydration, and peak condition in horses, before or after travel, and especially in competitions.

Most pastes on the market are calming pastes. Stress Paste is different in that it contains no sedatives.

Instead it protects the gut against the impacts of stress, helps support a healthy appetite and maintains hydration.

Prepare for stress, whether visible or not.

“She’s Never Been So Relaxed During Travel”

Winx has been training to be a therapy pony for the past 12 months. The travel & going into new, often busy & noisy environments, meeting lots of new people of all ages & abilities would induce some anxiety in any horse.

The difference in little Winx’s behaviour was remarkable after trying the Poseidon Stress Paste, even so, she felt comfortable to try to sneak a sausage roll from a resident! Her calm behaviour gave her a 5/5 from the nursing staff.

We won’t leave home without it from now on!

“I Buy It By The Box”

Wonderful product. Great for travel and competition. Keeps his sensitive stomach in check, allowing him to relax and settle in different environments.

He’s happy to eat and drink at different locations, even overnight stays. His manure is now always well formed and healthy.

Previously had a tendency to show signs of colic after a weekend away, with loose manure and nervous behaviour. I buy it by the box!

Still Not Convinced? Here Are Even More Reviews We’re proud of just how much our customers love the results they see when taking Stress Paste. These reviews are a must read.
Frequently Asked Questions Gut health can be confusing. Our team of experts are here to help you get the best information for you and your horse.

Yeast Derived Prebiotic and Postbiotics – Research has shown that stress during travel can change a horse’s gut bacterial population. Plus any extended time off feed is going to reduce the supply of fibre that is available to support your horse’s good bacteria. The yeast derived prebiotic and Postbiotics is added to assist in supporting the good bacteria through times of stress.

Magnesium Hydroxide – this ingredient is a strong buffer and works within Stress Paste to raise the pH of the fluid in your horse’s stomach to reduce the risk of gastric ulcers. Magnesium hydroxide also provides a source of magnesium to support the expected higher requirement of this mineral by the nervous system during times of stress.

Natural Betaine – betaine is a naturally occurring osmolyte. Osmolytes love water, meaning betaine is able to help your horse stay hydrated and better able to handle strenuous exercise (both training and competing) and heat stress. Research in other animal species has also shown that natural betaine is able to reduce the damage to the gut caused during heat stress.

B-Vitamins –  B-vitamins are crucial during stress to maintain appetite and support muscle energy generation during exercise. Vitamin B1 is also needed to support normal function of the nervous system.

Natural Vitamin E – Natural vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and will help protect your horse’s muscles from the higher levels of free radicals generated during stress and exercise.

Vitamin C – Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant and works together with vitamin E to protect your horse from free radical damage. Under normal conditions horses produce their own vitamin C. But research in horses shows that your horse’s natural vitamin C production is reduced during stress. The vitamin C in Stress Paste may support your horse during periods of stress to keep vitamin C at optimal levels.

Pectin – pectin is a sticky substance that is added to coat the upper sections of your horse’s stomach to provide some protection from acid splash during periods of time off feed. Pectin will also feed your horse’s good bacteria.

Amino Acids – threonine, glutamine, proline and serine are four amino acids critical for gut health. These amino acids are used directly by the gut to continuously regenerate and grow new, healthy gut tissue. Plus, they are needed to support the production of the protective mucus in the gut. By adding them to Stress Paste, we give your horse a readily available supply of these amino acids to help the gut stay healthy during periods of stress or time off feed.

The action of Stress Paste is different to that of a traditional calming supplement that aims to have a sedative effect.

Instead, Stress Paste works by supporting the horse’s gut health and muscle physiology. It provides concentrated support for the horse’s body and overall gut health, which is closely linked to the control of the hormone system and particularly stress hormones like cortisol (the hormone responsible for anxious behaviour), in a number of ways. 

  • Pectin to help line the gut with a protective layer
  • Betaine to support hydration
  • Magnesium and B Vitamins for nervous system support
  • Prebiotics and Postbiotics to help support the gut microbiome
  • Vitamin C antioxidant (supports a number of processes)
  • And Amino Acids for gut wall repair and muscle recovery.

Quite honestly, we think it’s a bit of a miracle product, and so do the customers who have left reviews about how it helped their horses through stress events like travel, shows, moving home, recovery from illness and more.

Stress Paste can be used as part of your pre- and post- scoping management to help minimise the impact that the fasting, stress and sedation may have on your horse’s gut health. We recommend using Stress Paste 3-4 hours prior to the scoping procedure and again immediately post scoping. 

Some of the beneficial ingredients in Stress Paste include: 

  • Magnesium Hydroxide - a strong buffer to raise the pH of the stomach fluid that can become very acidic due to fasting
  • Pectin - a sticky substance that coats the upper section of the stomach to provide some protection from acid splash in an empty stomach 
  • Yeast-derived prebiotic and postbiotic - a food source for gut microbes to allow them to maintain numbers during the period that the supply of fibre is reduced due to fasting. As a result, they may become be more resilient to possible stress induced changes in the horse’s microbiome.  

A number of veterinarians now recommend the use of Stress Paste as part of their pre-scoping protocol - however, please consult with your veterinarian prior to giving Stress Paste to ensure they are okay for you to do so. 

Yes! And in-fact Stress Paste will do a great job of helping foals and weanlings under stress (for example during travel or weaning). For foals, reduce to ¼ the recommended serve for the foal’s dam. And for weanlings use a half serve.

Yes. It is safe to administer any time. It will not interfere with sedation in any way.

The effect of the stomach buffering with magnesium hydroxide and pectin should last around 2 hours. When given as two doses in 24 hours, the remaining ingredients will work for that time period.

For best results with the hindgut pre and postbiotic, horses should be on Digestive HP longer term.

Not really; the dosage rate is meant for maximum effect. But if you wanted to try this you can do this, for example giving half before leaving home and half on arriving at the show an hour later. Try and find out what works best for your horse.

Many people find that this helps their horse, especially if the horse is staying away from home for an event, or if the stress event will occur early in the morning. If you know your horse is going to have a long, high stress day, you can give 'preload' with a dose of Stress Paste the night before.

2 tubes of Stress Paste per day should cover the majority of horses.

However, in extreme circumstances like prolonged travel (e.g. interstate travel lasting more than 8 hours) or prolonged exercise (e.g. during endurance competitions) a third tube may be required. It isn’t recommended to feed 3 tubes of Stress Paste for any longer than two consecutive days.
