Equine joint supplements – Which to choose?

Weighing up whether to buy an equine joint supplement, (or which one) for your horse, can feel philosophical at best, or profoundly difficult. Often we end up hunting through shelves (or webpages) of expensive, equine joint supplements, confounded by which to choose, with little independent guidance to rely on.

All we want, are happy, healthy horses, but how to decide which, if any joint supplements will aid us in achieving that!?

To answer this question, I NEED your help. I am currently completing an MSc in Equine Science at The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Edinburgh. I am investigating motivations and perceptions of horse owners for choosing equine joint supplements for their horses, and I will also review the most popular equine joint supplements purchased including, investigating the ingredients and claims made by these supplement producers.

All I ask is less than 10 minutes of your time, if you are 18+ and own a horse, please (grab a cuppa and biscuit) and click the link below. I need your thoughts on equine joint supplements and which one you use, if you don’t name it I can’t review it!

The survey is fully GDPR compliant and all responses are anonymous. The survey will be open until the 31st December 2022.
Thank you for your help and participation, I know this is an emotive topic for horse owners and my aim will be to publish the results, including in lay press, to help us all make informed choices.
