FlexiMover® GOLD is for young horses of any age who need support for their physical development. It is safe to feed to horses and ponies of any age, so is ideal for the very young who require extra support.

The majority of joint supporting supplements for horses – and for humans – contain chondroitin and glucosamine. FlexiMover® GOLD is a high-strength chondroitin sulphate and glucosamine hydrochloride combination that supplies active levels that beat all other joint products on the market.

FlexiMover® GOLD should be used long-term for best effect, and the amount can be halved longer term, if required.

FlexiMover® GOLD is:

  • Safe for long-term use
  • Safe for competition use

Feed FlexiMover® GOLD to:

  • All horses and ponies in hard work
  • Performance and competing horses and ponies
  • Older horses and ponies
  • Young developing horses as a prophylactic
  • Nutritionally support ligament, tendon and joint health
  • Naturally sustain joint elasticity and all-round mobility
  • Support musculoskeletal and navicular health
  • Support the body’s natural anti-inflammatory and pain mechanisms/responses

Pegasus Horse Supplements Ltd does not recommend loading this feed supplement as there is no evidence-based reason to do so.

Glucosamine is a well-regarded supplement for joint health. The compound has been shown to promote cartilage metabolism, therefore supporting joint structures and maintaining mobility.

Horses kept for their athletic abilities are at high risk of musculoskeletal problems, and injuries and diseases of the joints are a common problem. In fact, the most common cause of lameness in horses is due to joint problems involving a breakdown and degradation of the cartilage.

Supplementation can be an effective way to support the joints of working and older horses, especially those showing signs of wear and tear. Young horses can benefit from extra joint support during periods of intensive work, and joint supporting supplements can also be used prophylactically i.e. to help support good health and function before any problems occur. Hard working,older and young, developing horses will benefit from supplementation with FlexiMover® GOLD. Supporting the healthy performance horse with supplementation before any wear and tear is evident is prudent. FlexiMover® GOLD nourishes the cartilage, aiding joint health and function.

Chondroitin and glucosamine are the two gold-standard ingredients for horse joint supplements:

  1. Chondroitin for horses - a large complex molecule, which is classed as a glycosaminoglycan, and is found naturally in cartilage, skin and connective tissue. It forms the basis of the collagen and proteoglycan matrix that holds water, giving cartilage strength and flexibility
  2. Glucosamine for horses - an easily-absorbed source of a natural amino sugar found in the body which provides the building blocks for healthy joint cartilage. It has no known side-effects

Glucosamine is the most evidence-based of all the joint-supporting compounds and a must for horses of all ages who need extra mobility support. It is ideal to support natural healing after injury. Glucosamine is a crucial building block of cartilage, joint fluid and other joint tissue. It has been shown to promote cartilage metabolism, therefore supporting joint structures and maintaining mobility, and it supports the horse’s natural anti-inflammatory processes and pain responses.

Research in humans has shown that 1500 mg (1.5 g) daily is needed for effectiveness, so there is no point in feeding this, or even double this amount to a horse. Vets and nutritionists recommend 10 g of actual glucosamine daily for horses, which equates to 12.5 g of glucosamine hydrochloride.

Chondroitin is a highly-regarded supplement for joint health. Chondroitin supports the regeneration of proteoglycans in articular cartilage that are lost in damage and/or inflammation. Chondroitin supports the body's enzyme inhibition mechanism/response involved in cartilage breakdown and supports the horse’s natural anti-inflammatory processes.

The human dose for chondroitin is 400-1200 mg (0.4-1.2 g) daily. Vets and nutritionists recommend 5 g daily for horses.

Are you feeding the best joint supplement for your horse?
There are a huge number of horse joint supplements out there - but check the ingredients to make sure they can be effective. Just as important, check the amount of each ingredient per daily serving.

Daily servings of a few hundred milligrams of vitamin C or tens of milligrams of manganese will not make any difference to a balanced diet in a healthy horse - who should already be ingesting at least 400 mg of manganese daily and should be producing his own supply of vitamin C.

Extra vitamin C may be necessary for a sick, old or stressed horse, but to be effective it needs to be fed at a rate of 5-15 g daily.

Look at the product label to make sure each daily serving supplies enough active ingredients. The table above lists the amounts of active ingredients needed. To calculate amounts per daily serving where they are given per kilogram, divide the daily serving by 1000 and then multiply this by the amount of active ingredient in 1 kg.

Pegasus joint supplements include the most appropriate ingredients, provided at effective levels in each recommended serving. With Pegasus joint supplements, you know that the numbers add up for you and your horse.
