Whether your horse jumps or spins, does piaffes or a running walk, climbs mountains or pulls a cart, or works on the weekends or not at all, his joints keep him moving. But osteoarthritis (OA) is a common problem equine athletes face, has no real cure, and can stop a horse dead in his tracks.

Fortunately, there are ways you and your veterinarian can manage arthritic horses to keep them active into old age. We’ve scoured our archives and collected resources available for free on TheHorse.com that you can use to help keep your horse’s joints flexing freely.

For more resources, search “osteoarthritis” or “arthritis,” or view the arthritis and degenerative joint disease topic on TheHorse.com
