I've tried various joint supplements for my gelding. Corta-Flex worked
very well, and while it now lists MSM as an ingredient, a vet friend of
mine called the company and the molecule used doesn't test. I used
EquinylCM and it works well but not any better and does have MSM so
can't be used during competition.
What I have had the best luck with for the price is Equine America's
Super-Flx that I buy through Jeffers. I had my gelding on something
else without as high of an amount of the glucosamine and chondroitin and
can really tell a difference. I have him back on the Super-Flx now and
I'm sure will see improvement again within the week.
If you are using a supplement you like but it contains MSM or yucca, and
want to rotate off for rides, you may want to give this a try. Or if
you don't want to use the MSM or yucca (which has aspirin-like
qualities), the Super-Flx may do it for you. Last year when I tried
different things, I'd gone back to the Super-Flx and the vet at a ride
who knows my horse said he was more flexible than she'd felt him for a
while. So that alone lets me know it's working! And while none of the
joint supplements are cheap, that one is one of the most economical too,
which is a nice plus!
