Best joint supplements?

I have a 19 year old appaloosa gelding that I have noticed had been slightly stiff and his joints pop more than they used to. What are some good joint supplements? He isn't in pain I just think it is about time to put him on some joint supplements. What age do you think it is good to start giving horses joint supplements? I don't jump or barrel race just general riding. Thanks!!

If you are looking for something cheap that works pretty well, MSM works wonders and is about $10 a month. Cosequin costs an arm and a leg but I have heard of amazing results with it. Smartpak also makes great supplements.

Turmeric is very good.

Platinum Performance CJ also costs an arm and a leg, but I've seen great results in my own horses, and my vet recommends it.

I've been very happy with Smartpak's Smartflex III, or Smartflex II combined with Hyaluronex. I LOVE hyaluronex and am convinced it's one of the most efficacious HA supplements out there.

Joint supplements can be fed at any age abd as with anything, better to prevent than cure! Alot of top riders will give therea horses a joint supplement as a youngster to prevent problems in later life. I use nettexs jpint and muscle supplement and have had great rwsults with my warmblood. They use extremely high quality ingredients and don't add fillers to it so lasts longer.

I am a BIG fan of Tight Joints Plus! It is a great product that won't break the bank and WORKS. I use it on my two performance horses as maintenance and my 6yr old has a hock fusing and I don't want to inject him that young. After feeding double dose for the first 2 weeks I noticed a HUGE difference. And my other gelding is great as well.

There are some great testimonials on the site along with the info on the product.
