Supplements for older horses?

Hi there. I have a 30 year old that is in awesome condition but I want to really take care of his joints. Teeth are good, muscle good, feet good. But, those bones are joints are still getting old. I don't like Equine Sr. Because it has molasses. He DOES NOT need sugar! I've tried other brands but it gets costly with the amount you have to feed. Weight isn't his problem so fat content isn't a must. I ride him carefully as he is having trouble in rocks, as in large river rock and down hills.

My question. If I were to just give him a small amount of dry c.o.b. Daily with a good quality multi/joint supplement?

So I'm actually looking for input of all kinds from any of you on what you've used and like or dislike. There's so much out there that it's getting confusing

Any input or suggestions is appreciated.

The most effective one we've tried was Cosequin with MSM, but it's not cheap.
