^ what Anebel said. She converted me a little while back (adequan) and I have a completely different horse.

Tight Joints Plus is VERY reasonable price and affordable!

A 60 day supply is $68, and it is worth it because it works. It is getting more and more well known. I am friends with the girl whos dad made the product. He is a race track vet and she is a barrel racer. Her horse needed injections at least 4 times a year....and she hasn't had to inject him since on the product and he has ran the best he ever has.

I noticed a BIG difference on my one gelding whos hocks were bothering him and I don't want to inject (not a injection fan) within the first week of being on the product.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

It depends on the horse. I had mine on tight joints before switching him because it just wasn't doing anything for me.

But claporte you can get it off their site I believe. Talk to your vet though, mine stocks it and that's how I got it.

Mine was diagnosed earlier this year. :( She had 3 IV shots (knock on wood that helped, I started riding her again). Now on supplements (which is about same as Smartpack offers yet cost me about $30-40/month, and my vet swears by it, unfortunately don't recall the name since I'm not home), and I put Back on Track hock boots on her for several hours/day (2-3 weeks on, week off).

Just want to add, IV shots are not cheap (I believe it was $100/one for me), however, say, joint injections are even more costly. I did NOT try adequan - waiting on how long IV shots will last, then we may give it a try.

Were the IV shots Tildren?

Likely not, they were probably Legend - aka Hylarounic Acid or joint fluid.
While they can act to reduce inflammation, I know my vet prefers to use them only to prevent inflammation going into a comp or on a long haul. Otherwise he goes straight to Adequan.
There's some cheaper stuff on the market that is apparently the exact same as Adequan, called Icon. I haven't used it, but if you're strapped for cash I'd say it's better than nothing.

They do HA through IV? I've only heard of it being done directly into joints, or as an oral supplement.

ETA I didn't know that's what Legend was, I've only used Adequan.
