SmartPak Equine was founded by riders and horse owners for riders and horse owners. SmartPak Equine employees ride and show Dressage, Hunter/Jumper, Polo, Equitation, Eventing, and Reining. They got their start in 1999, with the purpose of simplifying the administration of nutritional supplements and medications to horses. The patented SmartPak™ supplement feeding system has been adopted by thousands of barns and horse owners across the country, who value knowing that their supplements will be fed correctly.
The SmartPak system has been embraced by riders from all disciplines and all levels, including many Olympic medalists. In addition to the SmartPak supplement system, they offer a broad line of horse health, show apparel, tack, dog supplies, and equine and canine pharmacy items sold through their catalogs and on the SmartPak website.
