I finally decided that it is time for my 13 year-old Quarter Horse to go on a steady joint supplement. He’s been ridden hard since he was 2; he started out as a cutting horse, and since then has continued cutting and currently competes in reining, trail, ranch pleasure, dressage, equitation, the hunters, and the jumpers. So his joints get quite the workout! He is short (about 14.3) and stocky, with long pasterns but otherwise fabulous legs. He is also an easy keeper, but I try to keep his weight down to where he is only slightly chunky. Even though a judge once told me he looked like a Christmas turkey. I still cringe at that comment.
I looked around and researched joint supplements, and found the Majesty’s Flex Wafers + HA. This is the description of them: An easy-to-feed wafer containing a combination of 6 powerful joint support products. Each wafer contains 150 mg Hyaluronic Acid (HA), 2500 mg Glucosamine HCl, 2500 mg MSM, 2500 mg Yucca extract, 600 mg Chondroitin Sulfate and 1000 mg vitamin C mixed with apples, cinnamon, molasses and oats.
A great tasting treat that ensures that your horse will receive his entire dose of supplementation.
I give him one of these per day with his evening feed. It is important to note that this horse has NEVER been unsound a day in his life, and I want to keep it that way; this supplement is purely a preventative and maintenance thing.
I plan to take him to college with me (Auburn) next year, and I plan to ride and show him for many more years, so I want to keep his joint in tip-top condition! Have any of you tried these wafers, and what did you think? Does it seem like a good choice for him?
