joint supplements for young horses

I was wondering if anyone knew of any adverse affects from giving young horses joint supplements as a preventative for future problems. I own a young thoroughbred and we event and I want him to stay sound.

All of mine are on half the recommended daily amount of super flex, and oil (cod liver oil in the winter and soya in the summer) they have not had any trouble and actually my young boy tenny at 3yrs has stopped clicking quite so much!

I know that glucosamine in certain forms cant be broken down by horses and so can build up on the joints and have an adverse effect by making the joint stiffer rather than easier.
