Hello! I have an 11 year old Thoroughbred mare, who I love dearly but is known to be eratic most of the time, but especially when in season. She hates to be touched in any form, including petting, grooming and tacking up. I've taken her to chiropracter several times and he couldn't explain her behavior other than he knows she is not sore. I talked to my instructor about how my mare acts and she thought maybe putting her on regumate would ease her grumpiness. I ride my horse 5-6 days a week, and have hopes of showing her, but when shes in season it is impossible to keep her concentration! Can you help my by listing some of the pros and cons of regumate and also any other suggestions you have would be highly appreciated! Thanks so much!

Boy do I know what you mean! I have had a number of show mares that act like yours. It can be next to impossible for them to perform as expected.

Although expensive, Regumate has worked like a charm. Care must be taken in administering it, be sure to use rubber gloves.

I believe that you stand a good chance to have a much improved show season. Do not miss a day and be aware that when you stop using the Regumate, a roaring hot heat is usually on its way.

To answer your question, I have used it many times and had great results. Good Luck.

Thanks so much Kelly for your help! I'll contact my vet about getting Regumate ASAP. LoL.

I understand that it is possible to give an injection at the beginning of the year that will prevent a mare (just like the one described - and like mine who also gives the symptoms of a sore back!)coming into season although it is not recommended if you want to use your horse for breeding purposes - please can anyone help with the name of the drug. Thank you

I don't know the name of the injection, but my neighbor had an implant used on his mare about 2 weeks ago. He can't believe it's the same horse. He said it costs $100.00 and last around 3 months. I am considering this for my mare. Regumate costs too much for my budget. It's a constant struggle when riding her. I bred her when she was 3 just to try to calm her down. The very next day and for the next year, she was an absolute sweetheart. Now my old B**** is back. I love her to death, but get tired of fighting.
