My horse Dancer is starting to develop a bit of arthritis I believe. When I clean his hooves sometimes I notice a click in his joints on his back legs. My BO recommended starting him on MSM which I have done. He seems to do fine otherwise. Not lame. I was wondering if I should get him some protective boots for when I work him? I was looking at the SMB Sports Medicine Boots and was wondering if that would be useful. (BTW, when I say work I mean trailriding, w/t, and eventually c, we are by no means truely athletic.) I've also thought about getting some bell boots. He is trippy and clutsy. I don't have ground polls to trot over so I don't really have a way to work on that unless someone else has an idea.
Anywho, to the point. Would some kind of supportive boot help him or not really?
