Top Reiner Likes Synovate HA for Joint HealthBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · March 26, 2015
International reining competitor Lisa Coulter has represented Canada at two World Equestrian Games, and she recently began coaching para-equestrian riders in the new sport of para-reining. Coulter, who is sponsored by Kentucky Equine Research (KER), trains and competes in top-level reining events, where her horses are asked to run, spin, and execute sliding stops from a full gallop.
To combat joint stress and support the health of joint structures, Lisa trusts Synovate HA, a product designed by KER for elite performance horses.
“With near-continuous stress on joints, tendons, and ligaments, my reining horses need the hyaluronic acid offered in Synovate HA,” said Lisa. “Sliding stops and spins really take a toll on joints. Having a product that helps reduce joint friction is beyond essential in a reining horse’s feed program.”
Synovate HA provides horses with a safe, easily absorbed, and easy-to-use form of sodium hyaluronate. The core ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring substance found in various connective tissues in the horse's body. Hyaluronic acid contributes significantly to maintenance of cartilage health and elasticity, joint fluid viscoelasticity, and lubrication of the entire joint mechanism. In addition, hyaluronic acid has anti-inflammatory properties, especially useful for high-motion joints such as those in equine limbs.
