Horses are amazing animals with incredible athletic ability. They were born to move and run with a healthy body able to repair itself quickly. However the domestic horses carries out many unnatural activities and the strain of jumping, galloping and highly athletic movements can impact on joints. When the body’s ability to repair itself is weakened, daily damage may occur faster than the repair processes. Research suggests that feeding a joint supplement can aid in maintaining normal repair balance providing extra insurance to support and maintain the bodies own healing ability.
