I'm a Cur-OST fan.  It's a whole foods product that packs a powerful punch in managing inflammation daily and providing the body whole food nutrients (rather than synthetic vitamins and fillers) so that it can best heal itself.

This is a great question for a good lameness vet that has seen the horse and done X-ray and ultrasound. Stifles are complicated.

I can give you two other supplements to check out besides the CurOst. Stride Rewind (really helped my horse with a stifle strain) and Grand Meadows Complete Plus for all 3 of mine.

Ditto to what classicpotatochip said.

probably a good idea to go back to the vet who diagnosed the stifle injury for some follow up on rehab to see if hes far enough along to be making runs. if hes getting sore after a run and work he may need to be dropped back down and rested again.

There is a lot of confusion between feed through joint health products and injections. In general injections are meant to improve acute injury inflammation or inflammation from active arthritic changes. Feed through supplementation, in general, is best used to support a better joint environment and in turn lessen damage done by hard use. In other words, feed through supplements rarely are effective in curing lameness, but may be useful in preventing it from happening or lessening its severity when it does. This is why so many different opinions are voiced about feed through joint health products. One user swears that their horse is better with it and another will swear that they are a waist of money. The likely truth is that the two horses treated had different issues going on and the feed through was positive for one and could never be for another no matter how much or which one you fed.

For stifles, I always give a shot of Polyglycan IV the morning of a run (if you can give it 4-6 hours before an event I think that's best and my vet recommends that). But, if we are going to a 3 day show I will give the first shot the morning before we leave and the second shot 4-6 hours before my second run. TANDEM is a great joint supplement, specifically stifles but I think you may have to have a prescription for is. I get mine for $76. I recently started a mare that I sent down the road that will rodeo this year, shes 11 and came from Janet Stover on Animal Elements Finish First because that is what the girl who brokered her had her on. I went ahead and ordered it, and started an older gelding on it who is stalled next to her because I couldn't help myself. She has obviously been on it, but I will say he feels quite good compared to before he jumps and plays a lot now where he was always a little creeky before. We are impressed enough we may try to see if the mare we have on TANDEM (injected every 4 months fronts and 6 months inside, and sarapin back injections about once a year) to Finish First and see if we see the same or better results.

  if your horse is sore after a workout or a run and just coming off an injury your horse is probably not completely ready for that level of work or it's not fully healed and is still hurting. A supplement won't fix this problem. I'd be going back to the vet.
