If you’ve always dreamed of breeding horses, it’s only natural that you’d want to jump right into it when you have the opportunity. Raising a foal and starting it can be intensely rewarding, and it can be a way to continue an especially close relationship with a mare past her natural lifespan. But there’s a lot of commitment and effort involved in breeding and you will have to make a lot of preparations before you can begin.
There are different kinds of horse owners, all with varying opinions. You may disagree about what kind of riding equipment to use, how to care for your horses, or even what to feed your horses. But the one thing that every horse owner would agree on is that horse joint health is vital when caring for a horse. We are all painfully aware that musculoskeletal injuries such as joint problems could render our horses lame, limiting their athletic longevity.
