Cashed up, calmed down

Pekaras Cashed Up Cowboy aka “Cash” was a ‘cool, calm, collected dude to break in and train.’ For owners Caron and Ellie Granger, it was clear from the start he had a real sense of maturity with roping and barrel racing – at home and at jackpots. But the crowds and crackling microphone at rodeos stressed him out and affected his performance.

“As horse people with years of experience in training and top competitions, we wanted to help Cash cope,” says Caron.

They spent 12 months training Cash to adapt to this new environment, but that could only take him so far. That’s when other experienced horse people suggested BetaCALM.

“We’ve never been in the habit of giving any kind of products to our horses for competitions and we were dubious. But for Cash’s sake, we thought it was worth a try.”

Like humans, horses get anxious. And like humans, it’s hard for them to perform at their true potential when they’re in this state – they just don’t seem like themselves. That’s why Kelato set out to create a product that could naturally calm down nervous horses and help them maintain their natural edge.

The result was BetaCALM.

BetaCALM comes in two forms: Paste for short-term calm, Powder for long- term improvement.

BetaCALM Powder is a unique combination of four active ingredients:

Magnesium: For cell metabolism, especially in the nervous and muscular systems.

Vitamin E: A potent antioxidant that protects cell membranes.

Tryptophan: Converts into serotonin to induce calm and relaxation.

Thiamine: A well-known animal calming nutrient.


BetaCALM Paste is a unique formulation containing the optimal level of tryptophan plus four herbal ingredients to provide an enhanced calming effect.

Tryptophan:  Converts into serotonin to induce calm and relaxation.

Black Cohosh: A herbal extract commonly associated with mild relaxation in periods of stress or anxiety.

Passion Flower: A herbal extract that supports a calm and relaxed disposition.

Hops: A herbal extract often recommended as a tool against anxiety and stress, hops has a calming effect.

Ginger Root: Is believed to aid in the availability of dietary nutrients for digestion and metabolism and to facilitate the utilisation of available energy resources, thus soothing the horse.

Whether you’re training, travelling or competing, BetaCALM can make a real, natural difference to your horse’s mood and behaviour, helping them settle down and focus on the task at hand.


It didn’t take long for Caron and Ellie to notice the difference.

“You can see from the before and afters of Cash’s performance runs, BetaCALM Paste has made a real difference. We’re super stoked that he can now handle the competitions at rodeo, running to his true potential while maintaining his natural edge.

Thank you BetaCALM for helping Cash with his anxiety problems.”
