Joint supplement?

I have a 21 year old gelding. He still competes in barrel races and loves every second of it. A few weeks ago he got a look over by the vet and the vet suggested putting him on some kind of supplement for his joints. He didn't specifiy a brand or anything and at the time I didn't think to ask. Now I'm shopping around and there are SO many different kinds to buy, I have no idea what to get? So what brands do y'all suggest? Should it be a senior or performance supplement? Also he's being eating all stock pellets, with a hoof supplement, and free choice grass hay. He is doing well and is in shape however I'm changing him over to a senior feed shortly. Will I still need a supplement with a senior feed?

If there are typos I apologize I'm on my phone and it's not the best way to post! Thanks in advance!

I had tons of questions about joint supplements, too, when I decided to start Mudpie on one. The folks at SmartPak helped me IMMENSELY. I strongly recommend that you call and chat with one of the representatives. They're extremely knowledgable and patient, and will answer all of your stupid questions. I recently talked to one for a straight hour, with all sorts of weird questions. :)

I've been repeatedly impressed with their customer service.

Check them out, and call them up to ask about what would be best for your horse!!

Their website is HERE.

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!
