Nutrition to Support Your Horse’s Joints

Key nutrients can provide essential building blocks to maintain strong joints and aid in your horse’s recovery after injury. Nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, cetyl myristoleate and avocado/soy unsaponifiables (ASU) have been shown to support equine joint health. A complete joint support formula is especially important for performance horses who put tremendous stress on their joints from the chronic wear and tear of intense training and competition. These horses often require additional nutritional support for joints and tendons and can benefit from building a complete nutrition plan around their specific performance and recovery needs.

When to Supplement for Joints?

Young, Sound Horses

Eventually subjected to the rigors of riding, training or showing, young horses can utilize joint supplementation in preparation for heavy use of their joints in the future.

Injured or Performance Horses

Support performance horses in training and competition and for being hauled many miles. For injured horses, joint supplements can provide additional support to overcome discomfort and aid in the healing process.

Senior Horses

When showing signs of a pre-existing condition, stiffness or discomfort associated with the natural aging process or overuse of the joint.
