I bought a 22 year old horse and 3 days later she was lame dragging her back legs and couldnt stand back up after laying down. The person that I got her from had her on supplements and did not tell me that. Her back legs would snap whenever she moved I tried alot of arthritis supplements and it did not get better so I was left with a horse that I could not ride. I ended up putting the horse back on what they had her on but I was feeding mass amounts for it to work and at $50 a tub it was costly. I then found yucca and after 3 months on it she greatly improved. She now gets Desert Pure 100% yucca every day and occasonal asprin and she is rideable in fact she acts like a young horse again. I would reccomend this to everyone. I will not be without it and I reccomend it to my friend's.
As Stable Manager and horse Trainer for the United States Marine Corps in Guantanamo Bay Cuba, I managed a herd of 65 horses used for Patrol and recreation. When I arrived in Cuba many of the horses were crippled with one thing or another, mostly arthritis ... right away I put them ALL on Pure Desert Yucca... egg bar shoes came off, and arthritic horses went back to work and remained sound. All horses received it every day and 95 % were sound after 3 months. It was a miracle to us as the terrain there was very unhospitable and hard on joints. I will never be without yucca for myself or my horses... All horses of every age should be on Pure yucca to prevent lameness, etc.
