Use the chart on the right to help you fi nd the support that’s right for your horse’s age and workload.

Over 2,600 customers rated the SmartFlex Family an average of 4.7 stars, and all 7 formulas are Guaranteed to Work. Read the reviews at SmartPak.com!

Why is a joint supplement so important? Your horse’s body is designed to repair and rebuild the minimal “wear and tear” to joints that comes with being a horse in its natural state (roaming, grazing, etc.). However, the increased demands of riding, training, and competing often cause more damage than your horse’s body can keep up with. Joint supplements help make sure your horse always has a steady supply of the ingredients he needs to cope with the stress of exercise and maintain healthy joints.

I want the best of the best for my horses, which is why my entire barn is on SmartFlex IV Ultimate. I love it because it provides comprehensive support for tendons and ligaments in addition to joints, so I know my top horses are getting the support they deserve. – Louise Serio, Team SmartPak Rider
