Joints are areas where two or more bones meet, and most joints are mobile. Your horse’s joint health is important for his performance potential and his well-being.

As a horse owner, you can help maintain your horse’s joint health by:

  • Monitoring his body condition score;
  • Facilitating movement through plenty of turnout time and exercise on appropriate surfaces; and
  • Keeping your horse’s feed balanced and well trimmed or shod to reduce joint stress.
