    How strenuous is the competition? There are probably 15 shows in my schooling circut and its not to hard on the horses at all.

    No, I mix it with their grain/feed. I feed alfalfa pellets mixed with ACV and their supplement.

    You can buy PP on line.
    Equine Health Center

    If you're feeding PP, you really don't need a lot of fotified grain or feed. The supplement I am using is pretty complete, like PP, so I feed it with plain Alfalfa pellets and some whole oats when we're in full training/showing. My horses keep their weight well and I don't have to worry about OD'ing on most vitamins or minerals.

    I would say it's more the heat over the summer that gets strenuous (around 110 but hottest show I've been too was 103 or 105). Three of the series I am planning on doing are all flat classes with a hunter hack class so that's nothing. There are a couple of shows where I am only doing 3' fence classes and then a couple 2 and 3 day shows farther down south.

    Alright, I looked at the garuanteed analysis on the supplements you posted and honestly I would not feed all of them together. The electrolyte seems innocuous and if your vet recommended a electrolyte it should be fine.

    You shouldn't feed both of the joint supplements together. There's really no need to feed two joint supplements, just find the best one and stick with it if it seems to work. Side note, MSM is a pain reliever so you need to be careful about noticing your horse's pain response as it could allow him to push through an injury/strain that would normally make him show lame.

    Next level - Glucosamine, MSM, Vitamin C (horse's produce this in their body from glucose, so unless your horse is old or somehow immune compromised isn't really needed), Bromelain (haven't heard a lot about this, something about blood thinning, which could be problematic if your horse suffers from ulcers), Perna Mussel (couldn't find any research in horses), and Shark cartilage (same as the mussel). If they haven't done studies in horses you need to be careful as obviously a horse's GIT is quite a bit different than either a dog or human.

    Here is the analysis for the Missing Link Plus. It has some trace minerals and such that you don't want to over-supplement. Sorry I'm too tired to type everything out like the first supplement. Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine from SmartPak Equine

    Sho-Glo: This seems to have everything in it and some of it in pretty high quanities. I would worry about the most about the Selenium levels, especially if you're already in a Selenium rich area or an area where plants hoard (can't think of the technical term) that could cause an enormous problem. Selenium has a very narrow toxic range. To be honest this is not a supplement I would feed with other supplements. But I tend to err on the safe side. Here's the link: Jeffers Manufacturer Information

    Hope that helped or at least gave you a good starting point with your vet! Sorry for the book.

    No no no thank you very much!! I love learning as much as I can about anything to do with horses lol.

    On a side note a fellow showy friend of mine who has the same vet said she suggested this to her:
    http://www.hyaluronex.com/
    Anyone given this a try? I'm still reading up on it.
