    Matrix 5+H/A is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has everything in it in great doses I have tried several joint supps on my 22 y/o mare. I picked this one because I like that it has good doses of all the regular ingredients across the board, plus Yucca. She will eat the pellets just mixed with timothy pellets and won't go to the other horses feed buckets to avoid a supplement like she used to do. I see noticeable improvement in the fluidity of her movement after about 10 days. I am going to keep her on it!
    Date published: 2011-10-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE! Matrix 5+HA is the best consolidation of supplements I ever could have asked for. Instead of feeding an absurd mixture of three other supplements to get effective quantities of Glucosamine, MSM and Chondroitin, I found this one that was not only cheaper, had all the right levels, but was also more convenient, AND gave the bonus of the HA which is normally TOO PRICEY for my budget!! I saved money, got a WAY better overall product, and my 24yo Appy couldn't be happier! The difference after 2-4 weeks on this product was incredible, he is so peppy!! Over a year later, and he's still loving it. His joints have all the support he needs to go strong on daily dressage work and afternoon trail rides. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My mare was injured last year, after she want stiff and sore. After starting her on this she has not had any problems. It is a little pricey but an excellent product
    Date published: 2011-06-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matrix 5+H/A is terrific My 16 year old mare was having joint stiffness and her gaits were off. I started the Matrix 5+ H/A and she improved within a few weeks. My trainer was so impressed with her improvement that I started my other two horses on it. They all eat it up without any problem, and my mare is pretty picky!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Hitter for Tough Cases Our western show horses have been on Matrix 4, but our 18 year old with arthritic hocks needed a little more support, so I added Conquer HA liquid. Since that did the trick, I upgraded him to Matrix 5 and it has helped him stay as comfortable as he's ever been. It may seem pricey to some, but this has much more in it than your basic joint supplement, and is not as pricey as many of the other heavy hitter joint products out there. This is a great option to turn to when you need more than basic low level joint support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Supplement Best joiny supplement Ever!! We put two of our Western pleasure show horses on this theyhave been on it a year and it has made a huge difference. It has cut down on injectios by half. Nowothers in the barn are using it with success. The only draw back is the price it is EXPENSIVE SmartPak needs a FREQUENT SHOPPER PROGRAM
    Date published: 2010-12-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Choice Although a bit pricey for me, this product is worth it! Within 2 days of having my 19 year old Paint/ Westfalen mare on this supplement I noticed a great difference. She has mild arthritis in her hocks and gets stiff in the winter, with this supplement though, she had no problem keeping up with my other horses including a very frisky 2 year old Paint mare (fellow pasture friend). I would reccomend this to any fellow equine owner whose horse suffers from arthritis/joint pain or discomfort.My mare is also very picky at what supplements she will consume, and has no problem gobbling this one down alone, or with her other vitamin supplement! Thanks So Much!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to have a pelleted option! My horse isn't a picky eater but he just doesn't "do" powders, and I got tired of spending money on supplements just to wind up scrubbing them off the bottom of his feed tub every day. With a pelleted formulation, he eats it all and I know he's getting what he is supposed to.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Matrix5 Holding Pattern I have been using Matrix 5 H/A for about 4 months. I have a 17 year old Percheron/TB gelding who is often stiff and sore. To be honest, I have noticed no discernible difference in my horse since using this product but it is unknown to me whether he would have been worse off without it. I have since opted treat him with i/m injectable polysulfated glycosaminoglycan and I'm exploring inter-articular tarsal injections. For the time being, I am continuing the Matrix 5 H/A regimen since I figure it can't hurt. It is quite expensive however.
    Date published: 2010-05-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great joint supplement My horses movement is greatly improved since starting this joint supplement and she eats it without objection, great for a picky eater.
    Date published: 2010-04-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matrix 5 H/A I have a senior quarter horse and this product works great. Also, the highest portions of glucosamine, chondroitin and hylaronic acid I could find. We no longer compete but due a lot of trails rides of 10+ miles.
    Date published: 2010-01-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I have an 18 year old TB mare that I have had for 15 years. We competed in Modified Jr/Amateur jumper division.I retired her. Then, she had 3 talented babies that I have kept to compete on, in the jumper ring. She is stiff and gets sore behind. I have tried other products and she wouldn't eat them. I just bought this product for the first time, a few weeks ago. She eats this product right up. She seems to be able to get up easier already. I am very happy to see my best friend more comfortable :)
    Date published: 2009-07-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coordinated Purchase I chose to switch to this supplement because it had some of the highest levels of most of the joint repair elements, and it came in a pellet form. Recently I tried to consolidate my joint supplements between horses, and this had all of the main element, and was more likely to be eaten since pellets are easier to distribute.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Combo for the $ This is our 2nd bucket, my 14 y.o. horse loves it, and his trainer says she sees a noticable difference. I think it gives me the most bang for the buck regarding the ingredients. Would highly recommend it.
    Date published: 2009-05-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value for your Buck I used to use Hylasport. However, when I saw the advertisement for Matrix 5 H/A and the ingedient values I realized that I would receive more supplements for my buck.
    Date published: 2009-04-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW- What a difference! We had stopped showing our 11yr old QH because he was so stiff in the hocks. He was truely uncomfortable, and was cranky because of it. Nothing we tried seemed to help. Before having his hocks injected I decided to try Matrix 5 HA, Really glad I did!!!! He is moving with ease and likes his job again. Love the pelleted form, he isn't able to sift it out of his oats as he did with alot of the powdered products.
    Date published: 2009-04-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Joint Supplement I have to say that I really LOVE this joint supplement! I think my 25 year old QH mare does too!! She has had the winter off and is now going back into work to get ready for show season and has already improved after only being on it for 2 weeks! Nobody thinks she is really 25! They all guess 15 MAX!! It really makes me feel great knowing that my girl feels great! I also love that it has everything she needs in it and i do not have to put her on many different supplements. She is a very picky eater but I can say she has not given me any trouble eating this one!! THANKS!!!!
    Date published: 2009-04-06
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed in our results... I have used this product 2x daily for 4-5 months on my 16 yr TWH gelding that is arthritic. He has not shown any improvement, and actually a bit more stiff. I selected this product based on the great reviews, but it did not work for Jet.
    Date published: 2009-04-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Joint Supplement I've Ever Tried! I have tried several joint supplements in the past, and this one is by far the best! Have seen an amazing difference in my horse's movement. I will continue to use this product and would definitely recommend it to friends.
    Date published: 2009-04-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MATRIX 5+H/A REALLY WORKS! I acquired a 10 year old QH diagnosed with arthritis in his left knee; backed up by vet exam and x-rays; his jumping/show days were over. I was happy to give him a less stressful life of leisurely trail riding. But his nodding and limp were painfully noticeable. After trying 4 joint supplements I've found this one really works! Been on this about 8 months and even though he's turned out on 5 acres to run with the herd he's just fine. You'd never know he has the arthritis now! I wasted money on cheaper supplements - This is worth the price.
