    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my horse sound My horse is seventeen years old and suffers from arthritis in his hocks. Since starting this supplement he has been 100 percent sound and seems like his young self again!!! He is not stiff coming from his stall and is happy to be back in the hunt. thanks again smart pak for another great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! My 10 yr old mare simply needed something to help with "sticky" shoulder joints. I started with and saw immediate results with Platform Joint. Unfortunately, it was discontinued. I tried Flex-n-Motion and was terribly disappointed. Finally, I was referred to GLC and I love it! Within one week my mare was back to her old self. This stuff really works! I am hooked and will be a loyal client through the foreseeable future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stiffness My horses have been on this product for years. In my older horse I saw a difference in his stride and flexibility. My younger horse had stiffness issues and after I put him on GLC5500 I have not seen him stiff at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great joint supplement for a reasonable price The ONLY joint supplement that has all of the feed-able forms of chondroitin and glucosamine. It is USDA approved and pharmaceutical grade so you KNOW what your feeding. Also, I've seen great results in my mare who has been recovering from a front end injury.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse saving! My horse, Lovey, fractured her hock and I was told she was going to be permanently lame! After 6 months on GLC 5500, she was vet diagnosed as 100% sound! This product is phenomenal! Don't give your horse anything else!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GLC 5550 My 10 yr. old horse has suffered from joint stiffness for several years and has been placed on different Glucosamine regimens, including some that were pretty expensive. She was recently diagnosed with arthritis of the knees with basically bone on bone. I was amazed at the results from GLC 5500 after only a few weeks, and my mare is running around like a young horse again. I highly recommend it! Sometimes the most expensive isn't always the best.
