My trail horse Chester is around 20 years old and is starting to become stiff. We ride anywhere from 10 to 15 miles and he is able to keep up with the other horses and is doing fine, I just want to know that I'm doing everything I can to keep him healthy and pain free. Is there any supplements that you know of I should be giving him that would help? I've heard Cetyl M joint formula works quite well but is quite expensive for a 16 year old's paycheck. Thanks for the help.

I would say at age 20 your horse has every reason to start becoming a bit stiff. Perhaps it is too much to expect him to keep up with younger horses on the longer rides. Take into consideration he's not as young as he use to be and adjust his exercise accordingly.
Actually I am quite considerate of his age, but thanks for the awesome help. I was just trying to ask for some help for my horse to make sure he was taken care of. His exercise is fine and he is in superb condition and does keep up with the younger horses. I don't expect a lot out of him and until I see that our longer rides are becoming a problem for him I will continue to ride him like I normally do.
Thanks for your concern.
hope your horse is doing fine.
