Help for Arthritis in back fetlocks.

My horse has just been diagnosed with mild arthritis in her back fetlocks.
The vet said she can continue normal activities (1 hr 5-6 times each week including jumping around 80cm and galloping) and did not have a long-term prognosis except that when she is around 20 yrs (she is currently 12) she will probably be unsound.
She is a SB and walks toe-heel.
I am just wondering if I can do anything to help prevent her arthritis getting worse.
She is a much loved pet and I would like to prolong her working life as much as possible.
Any ideas?
Thanks a lot.
