On Demand Content

Today's on demand content is provided by our partners at Adequan. Active horses need healthy cartilage to maintain joint function. In joints with degenerative joint disease, also known as osteoarthritis, the complex process of cartilage repair is unable to keep up with damage. This video from Adequan explains the process of cartilage breakdown and how Adequan can help reduce inflammation, restore joint lubrication, repair cartilage, and reverse the disease cycle.

Spearheaded by the late Steve Blauner and Sue Ockendon, the program sought to give back to the sport by helping the next generation of riders get more experience under their belt with the help of the financial assistance provided by the program, and the two days of included instruction from leading coaches around the world.
