Natural Remedies for Joint Pain and Stiffness...

I am looking for Natural Remedies for Joint Pain and Stiffness.. My 23 year old horse, Boston, has a stiff hind end and I want some natural things for him before having the vet come out. He trots and canters very stiffly. Thanks!

Most joint supplements are "natural" (i.e. MSM is a naturally occurring sulfur compound, glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar, etc.).

MSM w Glucosamine - it works on horses, yourself, dogs, etc.,. A lot of it has chondroitin, so I buy it with it - not sure it (chondroitin) is of any benefit, but good luck finding MSM w/o it in the horse world. It is pricey, I think b/c it is "hyped" and it works.

I would kind of be concerned if it only showed up in his hind, and not "in general", and if it were super obviouse. BUt as far as natural remedies go, you can actually "see" results w MSM w stuff like minor DJ - it isn't one of those "I think it might be better, or am I fooling myself".

Vetvits equiflex keeps my horse from being stiff unrideable and miserable to happy and in light work he's 27 :) x
