Calming Cookies® are a completely natural product, handmade in the UK. Ideal for taking the edge off during excitable or stressful situations. such as competitions, hacking, travelling, loading, clipping, training, clinic,  farrier or during periods of box rest.

Calming Cookies® can help your horse stay relaxed, confident and focused without becoming lethargic, switched off or affecting the ability to perform.

Contains a unique combination of ingredients that are fast acting and effective.

The active ingredients in our Calming Cookies® are the amino acids L-Tyrosine and L-Arginine which play important roles in managing anxiety, attention and mood, helping your horse to stay calm and confident.
L-Arginine is necessary for the production of Nitric Oxide in the body. Nitric oxide is a signalling molecule required for many bodily functions, including learning and memory.
L-Tyrosine is a precursor for the neurotransmitters dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline, which also play an important role in memory, behaviour, attention and mood.

All our products are competition safe as they do not contain any known prohibited substances, as defined by the FEI.

Our world-famous Calming Cookies® are now available in OriginalMint, AppleCarrotBlackcurrant, Cinnamon, Banana , Liquorice and Magical Unicorn flavours. Can’t decide? Why not try our Variety Pack of Cookies containing individual packs of our most popular flavours.

Is your horse a fussy feeder? Why not try our Calming Powder which can be mixed into a feed and can also be used as and when desired?

Contains molasses. If your horse is sensitive to this ingredient, or has a history of EMS or laminitis, we recommend feeding our Calming Powder or Premier Calm instead.



Instructions for use

The effects of feeding Calming Cookies® can be observed in 30 to 45 minutes and can last for 3 to 4 hours but it is important to remember that individual horses can respond differently to the number of Cookies fed, depending on their metabolism and pre-existing levels of serotonin.

For first-time use: we recommend a loading dose of 1 or 2 Calming Cookies® the night before the event, 1 or 2 in the morning, then top up with 1 cookie 30/45 minutes prior to the event if required.

For particularly stressed or anxious horses we suggest building up levels over 2-3 days prior to when needed.

Once you have tried Calming Cookies you may find that some horses only require 1 or 2 Calming Cookies 30-45 minutes before a planned event.

Up to 6 cookies can be fed per 24 hours.

Safe to feed over longer periods or just as and when required. Can be fed by hand or broken up into feeds.

Calming Cookies and our Calming Powder complement each other and can be fed together.

Customer Reviews

  1. These cookies really work! My horse finds travelling and being at shows stressful. One or two cookies before hand have worked a treat. He’s so much more calm and focused.


  2. I have been using the calming cookies for a good few years now! My horses are 100% different when on them than off! Before Team Chasing/ showjumping or hunting I give one or two the night before and then one or two on the day before we load up & there is a genuine difference in my horses when on them! They are just calmer & less stressy, when one travels he gets very stressed & is an anxious state by the time we get there then he is very fresh and sharp in the warm ups or at a meet. When he is on the calming cookies it does just that ‘calms’ him, much more manageable but still feels exactly the same performance wise, still quick & careful but just not hot or throwing shapes like he does when we’ve forgotten to give him them we very quickly realise we have forgotten as he makes it known👀

    Other riders even notice the difference in my horses & have tried the cookies for themselves because they’ve seen first hand how they do work, now they are also permanent buyers of this product! I soon realised that I’ve raved about them to everyone verbally when asked but never thought about writing a review, so here I am! Fab product for my horses! Helps them cope & find outings more enjoyable!☺️🙌🏼

  3. What a difference!
    After having my mares saddle fitted and back checked, I was still finding her a bit busy in the school. Rushing forward and bucking we just needed to calm her enthusiasm down a little with out loosing her power. These cookies have worked wonders and I would not hesitate to recommend them! We now feel confident enough to start taking on dressage competitions.
