Joint supplement for "seniors"

I was on SMARTPAK and they have a joint supplement for senior horses. 16 years of age and up (or something along those lines)

I'm not putting the haffie on any joint supplements yet as I'm doing a free lease and am not sure if I will be buying him yet.

I know Cosequin is good. My navicular gelding is on it and I don't want to use that for the haffie because its way too expensive for 2 horses to be on.

Does anyone have any expierence with the SMARTPAK senior joint supplement? Or does anyone know of a good one for the oldies? :)

I have my 6 year old on the SmartPak Senior Joint supplement. It is a quality supplement and has everything I was looking for.

My mare does not like it just fed to her. I have to mix grain into it or she won't eat it. Picky eater. But my other horses eat it right out of my hand.

She is on combination of the SmartPak Senior, Pure MSM, and Corti-Flex with HA. She also gets a Pentosan injection every.3 weeks.

I love the smartpak smartflex senior herb free supplement. It has made a huge difference for Lizzy. I went with the herb free version because I don't think devils claw and the other herb (boswalla maybe?) is good long term and it tests positive so I wouldn't be able to do endurance then.

So what is the difference between the herb free stuff and the regular? Like what are the pros and cons?

Regular contains the herbs, Devil’s Claw and Boswellia which is basically a natural form of bute. I personally don't think a horse should be on that long term so I get the herb free one. The herb free version also has a little bit more of everything else. That is the only difference.
