Barrel racing supplements

What supplements do you use to keep your barrel horse in tip top shape? From their joints, to the abuses of constant traveling from competition to competition.

All the performance horses get Silver Lining Immune Support to keep their immune system strong. JJ gets Platinum Performance for his feet and an overall great all around supplement.

This year for maintenance we plan on doing Glucosamine shots for the joints.

But I also try to have the best equipment for my horses when hauling. JJ gets his Back On Track sheet when hauling and stalled, the others get Magnetic sheets on. When hauling they all get Soft Rides to cushion the ride and absorb some of the shock from the roads.

The most important is the care...my horses legs always come first after riding, running, hauling, etc. a supplement can only go so far you need to take proper care of the legs. My horses legs get wrapped whenever we haul. They get wrapped while stalled and after a run. They get liniment rub downs, etc. my horses also get regular Chiropractor check ups and messages whenever the lady is up here.

My horses are going to get twice a year vet checks for health. If the vet says they need a joint supplement or injections, they will get it.

But overall, I feed Equine Saver everyday which is just a general health supplement for the whole body.

I agree with barrelravinglvr in that legs are so important! For longer trailer rides, they'll get wrapped for support (for short rides just shipping boots for protection). And long hard rides they get hosed down.

I recently purchased an MSM supplement for my older barrel mare and my reiner, might also add it to my younger barrel mare's feed as well.

When I take Rosie (the older mare) places, I always bring liniment. She fails when it comes to moving in her stall, and her legs will swell up like crazy. She wears shipping boots in the trailer, and sport boots when riding, but otherwise nothing else. I don't really haul far or often like some of the others do on here, however:)
