Best Joint Supplement?

I have a 7 year old OTTB mare. When the farrier came out to do her feet he said she was stiff in her hocks and I should put her on supplements. What are the best joint supplements? Have you had any success with any that you've tried? Thanks!

I use Smartflex Senior from Smartpak for my OTTB. It has offered more results than others I have tried as it contains a small amount of anti-inflammatory herbs that help keep horses with chronic soreness/stiffness comfortable.

Another Smartpak user here!

I tried all of the lower levels of their joint supplement as well as the Sr. Version. My guy is responding best to their Smartpak Resilience III.I may move to a higher version next year, but I want to see the full extent that this helps him first. We're also working through hock stiffness.

I do a mix of SmartPak Senior and Corti-Flex HA. I really like the Corti-Flex HA and am going to try and wean onto just that and the Pentosan IM injections she gets for joint health.
