walkinthewalk, have you noticed an improvement in your horse from the Equithrive? I've gotten really interested in it since I spent some time reading about it. It seems as if it could help with many types of inflammation.

He does better on the EquiThrive than when he was on pure hyalourinc acid. I'm not sure how much better because the equine chiro is on retainer ---- seriously, lollolol. She visits both my horses once a month and if they don't need an adjustment, they get a massage.

Joker deals with arthritis from a fractured sacrum, and his front tendons were torn in 2012 by the farrier who was supposed to be qualified to rehab him I when he foundered.

EquiThrive is pricey but it's one of those you get what you pay for if the horse has serious issues. If you do try the EquiThrive, please post your thoughts on it but I would use the entire container at their recommended dosage:)

I finally caved and put it in auto delivery. Joker will stay on EquiThrive for the rest of his life or until the vet tells me of something better:)

Joker, BTW, is my avatar. Taken in the Spring after he shed out and right before his 22nd birthday. I almost lost him twice thanks to his high insulin numbers, founder and those torn ligaments. The vet told me he is one tough horse and "not to give up on him". So I didn't :)

A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.

I CAN'T ride 'em n slide 'em. I HAVE to lead 'em n feed 'em Thnx cowchick77.

I thought it would be a good time to give an update about the Back on Track turnout blanket. I'm disappointed to say I've seen no improvement in my horse. He seems quite miserable, and I am running out of ideas to make him feel better. He always seemed more relaxed with the Back on Track saddle pad; so I had high hopes for the turnout blanket. He also managed to break off a belly strap and leg strap ring within a month, although I'm not sure how since I never see him running or playing.
