I use adequan on my horse to keep his joints healthy. When travelling I have portable rubber mats I use in his stalls and bed them as much as possible. I stable bandage in the trailer to and from the competition. If I am really concerned I will cold hose after my rides and at the end of the competition give a gram of bute. Hoof packing may also help.
The most important thing is making sure the horse is fit enough for the level of competition you're doing. When I compete the horse usually is not sore because he has been working at the same level he competes at, for the same number of days in a row.
