I've honestly not heard much about any of those supplements.

The thing with supplements is, they don't all work, and some that work for one horse might not work for another horse. You'll have to try one and see if you notice a difference, if not then you'll need to switch to a different one and keep going from there.

Of course some people just don't bother with them. I'm more of I'd rather spend a little and hope it does work. I'm a fan of these:

Cosequin® ASU Plus Nutramax Laboratories ( - Supplements - Joint - Powdered/Pellet)

Exceed 6-Way Med-Vet Pharmaceuticals ( - Supplements - Joint - Hyaluronic Acid)


But like I said, not all supplements will work for all horses.

I am not a big fan of buying the all-in-one type of joint supplements, my guy is so big I ended up going through way too much trying to get the right amount. What I ended up doing was buying MSM and Glucosamine by themselves, it was a lot cheaper and I could give the correct dose for his size and needs.
CORTA-FLX Flex-Force Glucosamine 5000 Solution - Horse.com

AniMed Pure MSM - Horse.com
