    Tom, you don't need to be worried so much about the
    Magnesium, as you need to be worried about the MSM.
    MSM *is* an anti-inflamitory and as such is definately
    not allowed in the AERC Rule 13.
    Some say to just take the horse off the joint supp a few 
    days to a week before competition to allow the MSM to 
    clear the system.  (my understanding is it *will* test)
    My feeling is I don't want to have my competition horse 
    on any daily anti-inflamitory period.  I want to know if 
    he needs it first.  I also don't want him anything that
    has yucca in it either, as yucca has pain reducing 
    Granted, the "retired" (from endurance) TB ex-race horse 
    is another story.  I know he has issues and I want to see 
    him on a supplement with MSM (which has synergistic 
    properties to GAGS and CS), and yucca is fine for him too.
    Pick another joint supplement.  Pick on with both GAGS and
    CS, and some supportive minerals and such.  There are a few 
    out there that have both without MSM, yucca, or one of the
    other anti-inflamitory / pain reducing ingredients.  Or you
    can combine a couple of the more "pure" varieties.
    Hope this helps,
