What is your favorite joint supplement?

I want to get a joint supplement that will work for both of my horses. I have a 19 year old welsh/arab and a 13 year old TB. They are both going to be in heavy work this summer, both eventing. Neither of the have joint problems, but I just want to prevent problems.

What would you suggest?
Thanks,
VB

Regenex is what I have been using. I did a lot of researching when decided to use it.
Horse Glucosamine : MSM for Horses : Joint Supplement for Horses
It's super affordable compared to other supplements that I've seen.

Horses cannot absorb glucoasmine through their digestive system, you would be just as well off top dressing the feed with sugar.

Talk to your vet about Legend, Adequan or glucosamine shots. I use Adequan on my horses and am always very satisfied with the results.

I love Cosequin. I wanted the same thing- my horse doesnt have joint problems, but I wanted to prevent any since im moving him up in the jumpers. He eats it right up and it seems to help his joints. Its a little pricey, but its definitely worth every penny (=
Good luck!
