My horse's left shoulder clicks any good joint supplements

My 7 year old paint mare has a click in her left shoulder she has had it checked out and nothing is wrong. She doesn't have arthritis or any thing wrong with her bones. I have seen plenty of other horses with a click in their legs or shoulders and none have had any health issues what so ever. I have been told by 3 vets and numerous horse owners that the click in the equivalent to a human cracking their nuckles. People have suggested a joint supplement which couldn't hurt to try. Her shoulder doesn't click ever day and it only clicks when she walks. Recently we had a really big weather changes and that could have something to do with why I heard the click again. But I don't really know what supplement to give her. She is a dressage horse. If that plays into any concerning what type of supplement to give her. Thanks for your help.

SmartFlex II is a good basic supplement. you want something that has at least 5,000mg glucosamine 10,000mg msm, and some vitamin c. the glucosamine helps heal past damage, and helps create synovial fluid (the fluid in joints that gives them the 'cushion'). msm is great for inflamation, and vitamin C helps assimilate the glucosamine into something the body can use.
