Unhappy Shoulder Injury! Supplement Help!

So basically,

I have a horse 13 year old Thoroughbred who was in a hacking accident which caused his shoulder muscle to be partly detached from the inside of his shoulder.

He is a simple happy hacker now and thoroughly enjoys it but does anybody know of any good joint supplements that are good in aiding horses from serious muscular pain?

He becomes stiff from simple things like standing in his stable, being tired up for 30 minutes +, not moving in the field, lying down etc but when you ride him he loosens up after about 4 minutes as he is constantly moving without any sign of discomfort?

He is currently on a combination of a Bute-Free supplement called No-Bute and also a measurement of Cider Vinegar which appears to be helping a lot but not completely.

I just want to have my old horse back that I could jump and school etc

My horse also has an old shoulder injury that stiffens up. I personally like Smartpaks SmartTendon and SmartFlex. After using these for a couple weeks I noticed a big difference when riding that we could go further without him getting gimpy and he wasn't stiffening up as bad.
