1) JOINT SUPPLEMENT
– A daily feed supplement of pure glucosamine
for the nutritional maintenance of
healthy cartilage and joints. Performance horses are predisposed to lesions of the articular cartilage due to increased wear and tear on their joints. Once the cartilage tissue has been compromised it can lead to serious problems such as degenerative joint disease.
Research has shown that the addition of glucosamine in the diet can significantly improve osteoarthritic conditions in human and animal subjects because it stimulates cartilage regeneration.
Our joint supplement provides a concentrated form of Glucosamine hydrochloride- over 99% pure (laboratory tested), the most concentrated formulation available.
£110.60 ( 2.5Kg tub lasts approx 5 months for 500kg horse) = £0.66/day (VAT free)
2) JOINT SUPPLEMENT ELITE – A daily feed supplement of a combination of products for the nutritional maintenance of healthy cartilage in the joints of horses in training and competition work.
This supplement differs from our original joint supplement because it contains other beneficial ingredients alongside the concentrated form of Glucosamine hydrochloride (99% pure) as seen in our original joint supplement. The other ingredients include Boswelia Serrata, a readily available herb with anti-inflammatory properties and Chondroitin Sulphate, Hyaluronic Acid and MSM – ingredients that are reported to have chondroprotective effects. The combination of these ingredients reportedly provides increased anti-inflammatory effects and chondroprotective effects compared to glucosamine alone.
The joint supplement elite is highly concentrated and can last up to 365 days depending on the size of your horse/ pony and level of activity they do.

Bozmerix is a revolutionary supplement designed to support the horses’ natural anti-oxidant systems and help with the maintenance of normal joint and muscular functions. Older horses or horses that are stiff may find it particularly useful when added daily to their feed. It can also be used during periods of rehabilitation and during periods of intense training and competition where pharmaceutical drugs cannot be used due to drug testing reasons.
Pharmaceutical drugs used to alleviate orthopaedic pain such as NSAIDs e.g. Bute carry side effects and are not ‘kind to the gut’. Bozmerix contains 4 key ingredients with no sugars or fillers and no prohibited substances. It is kinder on the gut and can be used for horses on a low sugar diet and those competing. The 4 key ingredients include:
1. Curcuma Longa: Curcumin is derived from Turmeric and has well documented anti-oxidant properties. Unfortunately, turmeric has a very low concentration of Curcumin (3%) so a vast amount needs to be given to provide any kind of benefit. Curcuma Longa has a guaranteed minimum Curcumin concentration of 13.5% and it’s formulation has shown to have a much higher bioavailability compared to a standardised unformulated Curcumin extract on the market.
2. Avocado/ Soybean unsaponifiable (ASU): Studies have shown that supplementation with ASU has chondroprotective properties (maintain normal cartilage health).
3. Omega Powder Concentrate (high in EPA and DHA): Help maintain the structural integrity of cell membranes and provide support for the maintenance of beneficial eicosanoids.
4. Boswellia: This natural product has reported anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which appear to be synergistic with Curcumin when fed together.
Bozmerix can be fed as a long term supportive supplement (one sachet a day) or the dose can be increased to two sachets a day during times of intense work/ post surgery etc.
