Preventing problems is much easier than fixing them.

The teamwork of tendons, cartilage, bone, soft tissue, and joint fluid are essential for proper joint function. A flaw with any of these working parts can create discomfort in the joint and predispose the joint to further damage.

It is important to note that it is much easier to prevent a joint issue than repair one. Prevention is especially important for horse owners that are using their horse for competition or work. Competing or training a horse for racing, jumping, dressage, three-day eventing, reining, roping, barrel racing, driving or other athletic competitions will stress the joints of your horse.

Farrier’s Formula® DS Plus Joint contains ornithine, proline, glucosamine, manganese and sulfur to provide targeted joint repair and support. The level of sulfur provided at the recommended adult dosage for an average 1,000-pound horse is equivalent to 3,500 mg of MSM. Farrier’s Formula® DS Plus Joint eliminates excessive sulfur supplementation that usually occurs when supplementing other hoof and joint products separately.


Administering Farrier’s Formula® DS Plus Joint provides the active ingredients important for the health of the joints and increases the flexibility of joints; which makes the joints less prone to injuries. These active ingredients also help the horse recover more quickly after a competition and compete at peak performance.

Active ingredients in Farrier’s Formula® DS Plus Joint promote strong and fast growth of the hoof wall, sole, frog, and heel; allowing the hoof to “grow out” wall cracks and defects. The increased growth and density of the hoof wall increases resistance to the microbial invasions that lead to white line disease and crumbling hoof horn.

The formula provides omega 3 fatty acids, phospholipids, zinc and copper to rebuild skin and hair coat to a healthy and vibrant condition. The skin is the largest organ of the body and reflects the horse’s general condition and health.

Farrier’s Formula® DS Plus Joint is suitable for all ages and work levels and is available in 11 lb. nitrogen flushed vacuum bags - a 60-day supply for the average 1000 lb. horse. The product reduces daily feeding expense compared to giving a hoof and joint supplement separately. Farrier’s Formula® DS Plus Joint is doping free and can be administered to competition horses.
