Joints, like all tissues in the body, rely on nutrients for maintenance and repair. If nutrients are in short supply, the vital organs (such as heart, lungs, kidneys, and brain) have first access since the horse’s priority is to stay alive. If nutrients are left over, tissues that are not life-supporting such as skin, hair, hooves, eyes, and joints will benefit. Therefore, the diet needs to provide all of the necessary components in adequate quantity to support the entire body.
Joint supplements may be helpful. But it's so much better to prevent the wear and tear that goes along with aging by providing supporting nutrients and promoting activity and daily movement. Nutrients that reduce inflammation along with those that feed supporting structure will serve to keep your horse's joints in good shape through years of working/performing as well as into old age.
