Hi can you please tell me if this is something that may work on my gelding? He Is dream pony to ride and will always put in 100% when under Sadle but when in the stable or just around the yard in general he is so moody ! He is better with us but we handle him all the time but anyone els that dared walk past he pulls faces and will even try to bite than! So I'm looking for something that mite just help him chill out around people
There are a few different calmers available for horses. They all seem to work very well for some horses and not for others. Dodson and Horrell Placid is as good to try as any for your gelding. I would give it a go and see if it has the desired effect. Otherwise you could try something like Equiliser.
My mare suffers from separation anxiety wether in the stable alone (only two stables) or out of the field on her own.
This herbal supplementary food can help horses such as yours, so it is a good thing to try. If your horse is fine when with other horses in the field, but is unhappy if stabled or ridden then she might well improve in time anyway, especially if she is handled in a consistent and reassuring manner. A calming supplement like this could certainly help too.

I have a spooky gelding who get stressed out a lot just want something to calm him down
There are lots of different products which are produced to help calm down nervous or excitable horses. It appears that all of them work for some horses but none are reliable to work in every situation. You have to try a product and combine it with considerate handling, then see how it goes. Some horses seem to respond well, others do not.
Im looking to buy a calmer, im not sure which one to go for?
We have a 4 year old Welsh A, he’s usually brilliant for his age but recently he’s behaving strangely. He has been bullying the geldings and acting very Riggy around the mares, (we did have to have him tested but it came back clear) we are wanting a supplement that takes the edge of so he doesn’t hurt himself or the other horses, but I don’t want it to affect his ridden work. Usually under saddle he’s very laid back and needs pushing on quite a lot, so I don’t want the calmer to make him even more backwards.
could you recommend a product that wopuld be goo to put into his feed.
I look forward to your reply
Dodson & Horrell Placid is as good a product as any to try. There are lots of different supplements for this and probably some horses will respond better to one than another. You can only find out by trying them. This is a good quality product which has as good a chance as any of being effective. It should not affect his going forward when under saddle.
I have a very wired mare

My mare is lovely when she is in season but very busy in her head when she isn't and she gets pushy and rude to handle which seems to be the wrong way round to be a hormonal season thing
This does sound unusual. If she is genuinely different in her behaviour when in season, then there is going to be a hormonal component to it, even though she does not follow the typical pattern. There would be no harm in trying any of the calming herbal mixes for horses, such as the one you mention. You could also consider the product Zylkene Equine. I think you will have to experiment a bit with different things to see what works best with her. Possibly your vet could investigate this further to find out if her ovaries are abnormal, so you should talk to him/her about it of course too.
