I did notice his stride did show improvement with this supplement but I did not see the remarkable difference I was hoping for. Overall it did help but I'm not sure that it's any better than the smartflex supplements

Overall, great product.
My horse Mmac doesn't care for the taste but a little oil to cover up made a difference.

Best for my older horse
Cosequin ASU is quite possibly the best joint supplement available. After trying the Smartpak brand of glucosamine , which did nothing to help my aged horse, I decided to go with the Cosequin. Now my horse is visibly more comfortable. So glad I switched!

Works well but horse doesn't like the taste
I have been feeding this supplement to my 11 year old TB gelding for a few weeks now after he developed some hind-end stiffness this winter. My trainer said she thought I should get his hocks injected but I decided to try a supplement first before going the injection route. One week on this stuff and he was already looser, bouncier and obviously feeling much better. He is stepping under with his hind legs much easier, and no longer lays his ears back during canter departs. However, it's like pulling teeth to get him to eat it, even when it's mixed into his feed. It smells very strong–a fake, chemical apple smell that I don't blame him for disliking. Since he is pastured with a couple other geldings, he sometimes kicks them off their feed and eats theirs instead in order to avoid this supplement. I have to bring him inside for feedings and wait for a half hour while he slowly and unhappily picks through his feed. For this reason I am going to switch to glucosamine muscle injections. But if your horse is less picky about taste, this supplement DOES work very well. I wish he would eat it more easily, because I'm happy with the result. It works fast!

28 yr old gelding is on this after fracturing his hip bone running out of his stall. He hadn't been able to use his rt hind and was becoming stressed on the left. After one month on this product, he is now able to walk much more steadily, can leave his stall and enjoy a roll and romp as well!! So Happy!

Horse wouldn't touch it
This was his first supplement. I never would consider him picky, but now I know. The smell was sickeningly sweet when I opened it, that should have been a red flag. Where are the pellets?
