I started my mares on this a month ago and my older mare who is a very picky eater isnt crazy about the taste but my younger mare likes it. However i have noticed a huge difference in my younger mares movement and soundness since putting her on this product. She used to be the type who came out of her a stall a little sore and had to work out of it but not anymore. She has been so much more comfortable and happy i highly recommend this product to anyone with a horse who is stiff or sore or an older horse. Even though neither of my mares are being ridden my vet recommended the miligrams of everything in this supplement for them both :)

The product appears to be helping in the short period of time I have used it. I am looking forward to more improvements over the next couple of months. My horse likes the taste of it and he does move easier without the stiffness. I would recommend this to your clients.

Hylasport has really helped
UPDATE: I have now had my mare on Hylasport for 4 months and it seems to really have helped her, even more than the joint injection we gave her prior to putting her on this supplement. She is 21, navicular has hock problems, and just last month my vet came out to check her and agreed that her improvement had to be the supplement . I might also add, that I have used BL Solution in the past with no success. But recently I added this to the mix, (I wanted the extra B12 as she seemed depressed) and saw an even greater improvement. If you have an older horse with chronic soreness/lameness issues try both together and see if it works.

Best supplement I've ever given my mare!
I got this after a recommendation from my vet after my 5 y/o OTTB mare injured her stifle and was basically un-rideable. Before considering injections I tried this and she is a new horse! She feels even better than before her injury!! Best money I've spent! I LOVE it! Definitely worth a try if you need a joint supplement that works!

It could be working
On Nov 1, 2011, my 20 year old mare had her left coffin bone joint injected. She has navicualr issues and recently became much worse. This was our first injection. A week later (she needed to be confined for a week) she looked pretty good, but within another week she was lame again even though I was only hand walking her during this time. . On Dec 1, 2011 I started her on Hylasport (I had been using Smart Flex senior Herb free). Today (dec 13th) she is running around and playing in the arena - she is still lame, but was taking a few good steps and obviously feels better. So, Possibly this supplement is helping her. I do not think the injection did help. I thought that the Smart Flex senior herb free did help for quite awhile, (we had a year of very good soundness on that product) but perhaps she just needs something different now. Hylasport is pricy and I am using two scoops a day, but she does seem happier at least.

HylaSport is the best product I've found for horses in reining training who are learning to use muscles and putting stress on joints that haven't been used previously in this way. Joints that previously showed signs of tiring or soreness after a full workout show no tenderness. There were also no digestive problems associated with putting them on or keeping them on this supplement.
For older horses who may no longer be competing or may be retired, SmarkFlex Senior provides joint and pre-and pro-biotic digestive support to help keep joints moving freely and digestion healthy, which helps them hold their weight. Can't speak highly enough about this for those older competors or retired horses.
