A joint supplement can be a valuable addition to your horse’s joint health management plan, but joint supplements aren’t all created equal. For a supplement to be effective, it needs to include ingredients at levels that will help support your horse’s joint health and relieve joint pain and inflammation. Whether you’re ready to start your horse on his first joint supplement or think that it’s time for a change, these steps can help you choose your next supplement wisely.
A senior horse’s joint supplement needs will differ from what your yearling growing up in the pasture will need. Consider your horse’s age, any current joint health issues and his activity level when deciding the type of supplement that’s best. Many supplements offer multiple formulas, including basic support and a more comprehensive supplement that delivers higher dosages of ingredients to support active performance horses and seniors.
When assessing a supplement’s quality, start with its ingredients list. Look for these most common options:
A supplement may contain the ingredients you’re looking for, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are provided in amounts sufficient to be effective. For best results, we recommend:
These levels are recommended for ingredients that are used alone. When multiple ingredients are paired in a joint supplement, lower or higher levels of each may be included, yet can still be effective as the ingredients work synergistically.
Horses may test positive for some common ingredients in some joint supplements, so it’s important to avoid these supplements if you’re completing your horse. For example, devil’s claw is frequently included in joint supplements, but the USEF prohibits it.
Before putting your horse on a new supplement, carefully go over the banned substances lists of any governing body that you compete under. Compare the supplement ingredients list and make sure that you can compete your horse while he’s on that supplement.
Alternatively, it’s easy to know that your horse won’t test positive when you buy BRL Equine supplements. Supplements like EQ-Royal and Flexify-HA are free of substances banned under the USEF Drugs and Medication Guidelines and the FEI Prohibited Substances List.
Joint supplements can help relieve pain and inflammation, and some can help to protect joint health and even encourage cartilage growth. Feeding a joint supplement will be most effective when you follow the dosage directions and incorporate other supportive measures, like conditioning your horse with joint health in mind and riding on footing that helps to minimize joint concussion.
