PREMIERflex plus description
PREMIER FLEX Plus is a very high spec equine joint supplement that has been formulated to include the very best ingredients that a horse owner can buy in a modern equine joint supplement. Not only does it include high levels of the essential ingredients Glucosamine HCL, MSM and Omega 3 oils we have also included the very expensive ingredients Chondroitin Sulphate and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which are the latest innovations in joint supplements and work in synergy with the above.
PREMIER FLEX Plus contains exactly the same levels of glucosamine HCL, Chondroitin Sulphate, MSM and Hyaluronic acid (HA) as Premier Flex HA but Premier Flex Plus also contains high levels of Devils Claw Extract, a natural ingredient which supports the body's own natural anti-inflammatory response.
The best joint supplements for horses work by helping cartilage composition and the production of synovial fluid over a continuous period of time. Most horse joint supplements do not contain high levels of glucosamine, chondroitin, HA and MSM PLUS a high level of Devils Claw. Premier Flex Plus is much stronger than the types of joint supplements that are available in tack shops and it on a different level to herbal only products that are based on cold liver oil or green lipped mussel extract.
PREMIER FLEX Plus is fast acting and results are normally seen in a matter of days.
How Does Premier Flex Plus Work?
Glucosamine is an amino sugar used to build tendons, ligaments, cartilage and synovial fluid (joint oil). It stimulates production of GAG’s (glucosaminoglycans) in synovial fluid to enhance lubrication. In addition to being a lubricant this fluid acts as a shock absorber cushioning the joint during exercise. Pain and stiffness occur when the fluid becomes thinner due to age, hard work or disease. After being consumed Glucosamine is absorbed through the wall of the intestine into the body. It is then attracted to the joint cells where it provides the raw material to build up synovial fluid. Premier Flex HA uses super strength Glucosamine HCL, the very best glucosamine (40% more glucosamine than standard glucosamine).
Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
Hyaluronic Acid is the latest advance in joint supplements. Hyaluronic acid (known as HA) is a component of synovial fluid whose function is to cushion and lubricate the joint. Combined with Glucosamine, Chrondroitin and MSM this group of nutraceuticals “..provides significant lubrication to the synovial membrane that is responsible for dissipating more than 50% of the friction within the joint” - J. Black, DVM, Senior Partner, Pioneer Equine Hospital, California. HA is very expensive and as such most companies do not include it in their joint supplement. Hyaluronic Acid is a very important ingredient in joint supplements, previously it would be injected into the joint but with a high spec joint such as Premier Flex HA it can now be provided in oral form.
Most bones end in cartilage, a plastic like material which lines the joints preventing bones grating against each other. If this lining wears out the joint becomes stiff and uncomfortable. Chondroitin is chemically similar to glucosamine and is a constituent of cartilage. Chondroitin sulphate works in synergy with glucosamine and HA to help maintain cartilage composition. Chondroitin is also very expensive and often left out of other products or added in only minute quantities.
MSM is a rich source of organic sulphur and crucial as a building block for joints, tendons, cartilage and ligaments. It is essential for all connective tissue and is often fed on its own in horses and humans. Combining MSM with glucosamine, chondroitin and HA again has a synergistic effect and no high spec equine joint supplement should be without MSM.
Omega 3 is present in Premier Flex HA in high amounts and this is derived from micronized linseed. Through its digestion the source is broken down into EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids. These are very healthy fatty acids and help lubricate joints and facilitate the movement of synovial fluid in the joint.
Methionine and Lysine
These two ingredients are both amino acids that help with the natural production of MSM.
Vit C and Vit E
Two powerful anti-oxidants that play a key role in neutralising free radicals thereby helping boost the immune system. Vitamin C also helps collagen production and joint problems can occur when there is a lack of collagen in the joints.
Premier Flex Plus contains a high level of Devils Claw Extract which is a powerful ingredient that supports the body's anti-inflammatory response. Using an extract of devils claw ensures the correct level of harpagoside which is the active ingredient in Devils Claw. Harpagoside is so powerful it is now prohibited in British Horse racing as its effects have been comparable to Bute. This high level of Devils Claw makes Premier Flex Plus a very strong joint supplement and not recommended for younger horses that do not have diagnosed issues.
Please note Devils Claw (Harpagoside) is a now controlled substance with both the BHA and FEI, this means it must be withdrawn before competing. The BHA recommend a 48 hour withdrawal period before competition.
CAUTION: Do not feed Premier Flex Plus to pregnant mares.

I have a 22 yr old irish hunter, still competes and is worked 4 times a week. I have had him on a joint product for years as he has a touch of arthritis in his fetlock joint. Recently he started showing very slight on and off lameness which made me start looking for something stronger. came across yor product, researched it & ordered it. Fantastic fast delivery, left where I had asked and after 2 weeks he seemed sound. he is feeling fab now and I am delighted. I will be keeping him on it and I'm spreading the word. Well done and not ridiculous money!!
I have a 20+ year old connemara gelding who is retired bar some light hacking in walk after an annular ligament desmotomy, he also has osteoarthritis in both hocks. I've always had him on a joint supplement with the vet recommending feeding Danilon beforehand riding. Since switching to premierflex+ I have noticed such a change in his willingness to move.. he canters down the field now at feeding time instead of just walking and just seems so much more mobile and comfortable and happy in himself all while being completely off Danilon. Happy pony and happy customer!
I have used Farriers Favourite and 365 Complete for a number of years with excellent results - super healthy bare foot TB, so when he looked a bit stiff I tried the Premier Flex Plus - Amazing stuff wish I had tried him earlier on it, as he was always a bit stiff for a few strides when first ridden in walk - not now -I have a 16 year ex race horse who shouts for his tea and loves to work with no stiffness at all and has a bouncing walk trot and canter - this is only after 1 months use- just a pity I cant use it to un-stiffen me!

I have tried lots of diffrent preps for my 22 yrs old dressage horse. NAF. Equimins, Cortaflex, Equine America etc... I must say PREMIERflex Plus is the absolutely best ever. Outstanding results. Thank you for this excellent product. I am more than satisfied :)
I use Premier Flex Plus for both my 17 y/o mare working at Advanced Medium Dressage and my 21 y/o happy hacker gelding with cushings, laminitic tendencies and loads of other issues. I find Premier Flex Plus is the most effective joint supplement really helping both horses to move freely. I love the ease of ordering and the fast delivery which is left safely as per my instructions if I am out.
My horse who is a 22 year old cob has had arthritis in his joints for quite a few years, he was very lame and I just could not get him sound. Having tried almost every supplement available, I came across Premier Flex Plus online and was impressed with the reviews so I thought I would try it. I am totally amazed! I can ride him again, he even does a few small jumps. I just hope this continues as his and my life have been transformed.
For anybody think 'Damn-it' like me after the FEI's decision, how about this for a work around. Keep feeding the PFP but buy a tub of PF HA, then when you have a competition date, switch off the PFP a few days in advance and feed the PF HA instead at slightly higher amount e.g. (1.5/2 scps) during competition, switch back to PF Plus when finished competing. That way you're not breaking any rules and your horse still gets the benefit of the Devils Claw most of the time. I've used this product for many years now although I've recently used PF HA rather than Plus because my new horse is younger and didn't need the Plus. That said, he's just been advanced to the Plus in November after an MRI showed damage to his Fetlock joints, typical that the FEI have chosen to do this but at least they haven't decided to ban it. I will be buying a pot of HA once my horse is allowed to compete again and will use the switcheroo method above to make sure he still has the joint protection he needs when competing.
Amazing product that has really helped my 22 year old pony. She has gone from being very stiff and pottery to being like a spring chicken again. Has knocked years of her, she is like a different pony. THANK YOU Equine Answers, super products and a wonderful team of people.
Pour les clients FRANCAIS n'hésitez pas le cout de livraison est plus que raisonnable et la livraison rapide ;( concernant le produit: sur ma jument de 28 ans qui fait de l'arthrose a bout d'une semaine je vois déjà un mieux. A voir dans le temps mais ce produit me comble déjà et le rapport qualité prix est imbattable. Concerning the product: on my mare of 28 years which makes of the degenerative osteoarthritis has end of a week I already see one better. To see in the time but this product already fills me and the value for money is unbeatable.
Très bon produit. Très efficace sur une jument de 14 ans qui souffre d'arthrose cervicale; depuis que je lui donne elle est beaucoup plus souple et a moins de douleurs. De plus produit moins chère que ceux que l'on trouve habituellement.
My warmblood is 14 years old & quite stiff but not lame. He also has wear & tear to his stifle through eventing. He has the physio regularly to keep him as supple as possible. I have tried various products for his joints and even bute, but nothing has shown much difference in the way he moves. As a last resort I tried Premier Flex Plus. After 7 days I could feel the difference, he was so much looser with his movements and he seemed to have much more energy. My trainer noticed a difference within a few minutes of riding him and I hadn't even told her at that point he was taking this product. I am very pleased with this product and he seems so much happier and willing to cooperate with his schooling than he ever has before. Thank you for all the reviews I read before deciding to try this product for myself. ??
Excellent produit. Fonctionne réellement, de très bons résultats sur une jument de 14 ans qui souffre de forte arthrose cervicale. En plus beaucoup moins chère que les produits que ko trouve en France.
I tried this on my older TB mare when she was coming back from a ligament injury. 10 days on the loading amount and the different was noticeable. She was much more forward and keen and seemed generally happier. Being a sceptical person, I then used it on my other mare, a 18yr arab x,who was injured last winter with a tendon and ligament problem which required surgery. During her rehab her other leg was unfortunately fractured. I didn't really think she needed the devils claw but didn't want to use 2 different supplements for the 2 horses. 7 days from the start of the supplement and I could see a difference. My daughters instructor also noticed a difference before I told her i had started on the supplement. She is less wooden and much more flexible. She was struggling to change leg on the right rein but is now doing effortlessly. I recommend anyone to try this product.
I just finished my tub of premier flex plus on my welsh D who is 13 yrs old he has start of arthritis in his hock and since giving him this he is so much happier new lease of life. I highly recommend anyone too try it on their horse who has joint issues I was a bit sceptical but it work wonders and I will continue using it for the rest of my horses life.
My 17 year old mare had a lameness in her hind which was pointing to being arthritic in nature possibly following an injury in the field. i have been using the Premier Flex Plus for 3 months now with great results seen and I am very pleased with here way of going. She is loose in her movement and very happy on her rides. It is a product I recommend and would not be without now.
My gelding is a connemara cross who is still in light work after his many years of showjumping. He is 26 years old and as a result of his jumping days I have always been keen to look after his joints. I had tried him on many joint supplements over the years but honestly cannot say I have found one that works wonders like Premier Flex Plus does! I needed something to keep him supple so that his body could match the age that he thinks he still is, and this has done exactly that! I cannot fault this product, delivery is super quick, it is amazing value for money, and appeals to the fussy eater too! Amazing product! My boy has a new spring in his step and does not feel his age one bit!
AMAZING RESULTS! My 7 year old horse 17hh Irish Draught was diagnosed with Bone Spavin and injected with cortisone. I immediately put him on Premier Flex Plus and carried on normal work including taking reserve champion at large county show and moving up a level to elementary dressage. My horse is at a livery yard and recently I have not been there at feeding time. They forgot to tell me it had run out. I began to feel the same stiffness I had felt before and thought I needed to go and have him re-injected. As this involved shaving hair and we have a big show coming up I decided to put him back on the Premier Flex Plus and leave going to the vets for a month if possible. He is now going so much better and I cannot believe the difference this product is making. It isn't psychological as I didn't know it had run out!
Been using premier flex plus for about a year and has made such a difference to my cob who has arthritis in his hock he's like a new horse now highly recommend this product.
My warmblood is 18 years old now and 4 years ago he was diagnosed with bone spavins plus he has a kissing spine and psd. We used to showjump before his diagnosis but now only gently hack out 2-3 times a week where he starts off with a couple of shuffling trots with his nose on the floor before he can work up to a bunny hop into canter. It is so sad as he was such a performance horse. I have tried many supplements and medical remedies to help him as best I can but it is what it is. I recently heard of PremierFlex Plus and decided to give it a go and am so impressed with the difference in him. He literally took off like a rocket the first time I rode him out after giving him the Plus for a week. He went straight into canter and was raring to go. It was wonderful to feel him moving so freely and happily. I wondered if it was a one off but he was the same again when I rode him 3 days later. No bunny hop at all. Fabulous! Long may it remain and I am so happy I have found something that gives him the extra support he needs.
Fantastic product PremierFlex Plus. My Mare has a fractured splint bone the ligaments were not fusing together properly, she had steriod injections but still kept going lame when in work, I put her on this product after reading reviews over 18 months ago and she has not got lame since.
After my mare had been diagnosed with arthritis the vet advised me to start on a joint supplement. I personally thought it had gone too far for a supplement to help but anyway I started her on Equine America, can't remember which one but it said it had high levels of glucosamine. After 6 weeks and still being on one sachet of bute a day I didn't see any difference so I took her off that and saw that Equine Answers do a supplement. I tried the HA to begin with, I found this did help. She went down to half a sachet of bute a day and kept in regular work to prevent her from stiffening. Two months later when she had finished I wanted to see if the Plus made much difference and wow it did. She was once again the same horse I bought 10 years ago, excited while out, sometimes a little bit too much .I made the mistake of not ordering it again until a few weeks later after running out and now I fully see the effects this product was having on her. I've just put an order in for the 2kg and won't be making that mistake again. It's not the cheapest product but I'm willing to pay for something that works and keeps my lovely lady happy. So thank you!!
I cannot speak highly enough of this product. Been using it since 2014 when my then 12 yr old SecD managed to damage his DDFT within the hoof. Vet was amazed at his recovery. I’ve continued to use this during winter months as he now has arthritis but swap to Premierflex HA during the summer when he has turnout
I have a home bred 26 year old mare that i have had on Premier Flex Plus for the last 4 years. She is still in work, ridden about 4 times a week, and is totally sound in every way. Even supple enough to produce all lateral work and still showing spring in her paces. I also had a recenty sold advanced dressage horse that I had on the Premierflex HA for 5 yrs and she maintained soundness and excellent movement throughout all her training, A 5 star vetting with 50 xray plates also showed all her joints to be clean of wear and tear, in spite of being 12 yrs old and working at Int11.` I therefore both firmly believe in and am extremely grateful to Equine Answers for their excellent joint supplements. Their pricing has also remained so reasonable.
I have been giving my 26 year old Fell Pony Premier Flex Plus for several months now and his arthritis in his hocks has improved. I will continue to use this product, it helps and does not break the bank like others I have used in the past!
I have been using Premierflex Plus on my 17hh Friesian x since August 2017. He has various issues with his joints and back but since being on this joint supplement he's a different horse. He's no longer stiff, he lies down in the stable, his whole shape has changed as he's obviously finding it easier to work and to see him rearing and playing in the field with his pals is now a joy to watch - he's much more active! Delivery is super-quick too!
I have a 24 year old Connemara and have tried verious different joint supplements as he's got a lot stiffer as he's got old.... None seem to do much until I found Premier Flex Plus. ... I can not recommend this supplement enough. I'd say I noticed a different within 2 weeks and he's just improved as time has gone on. His stiffness and occasional slight lameness has gone and he is moving and feeling the best he has done in a long time. I won't change what he's on now. This works great and it's given my old boy a new life. Thank you!
I would like to let you know how happy I am with your service and your product. I have a 16 year old mare.... I put her on your Premierflex Plus joint supplement two weeks ago and already have noticed a difference in the way she moves and her attitude towards the work she is asked to do when schooled. I would also like to comment on your delivery times, I have now ordered twice from you and both times have received my goods rapidly. Using Premier Flex Plus you will see results! and the product is well worth the money you pay for it .... Thank you once again for super service, rest assured I will be back to purchase more. If you wish to show this message to other customers please feel free to do so.
I'm using Premier Flex Plus joint supplement on both of my horses. For my semi-retired 16'3hh 14yr old Warmblood (who has bad hocks) it has definitely made him more loose and supple when being schooled and I think that not being so stiff during the winter has lifted his spirits as well. I also use it for my 10yr old welsh section D show jumper and even though there was/is nothing wrong with him its nice to know that i'm doing something to help preserve his legs for as long as possible.
The Premier Flex Plus was for our Clydesdale, he is twenty year old + retired logging horse. He has very stiff hind legs, no doubt through the years of heavy pulling etc. Before giving him Premier Flex Plus it felt as though he was walking with 3 legs for the first 5 minutes when we rode out. Now he is much, much better. In fact when let out he now sometimes canters (in his own way) out across the field of his own accord. It has given him a new lease of life. The farrier also commented today (without any prompting) how much easier he moves and lifts his legs for shoeing etc. I would certainly recommend this product.
Premier Flex Plus product is fantastic! I think my horse feels much better. He likes more to walk and it looks much better. I am sure that I will order more if this box is empty. Thanks a lot because you were my last chance.
PremierFlex Plus has done wonders for my 26yr old ex- racehorse. He's fully retired but still loves to race around & play with his field mates. His legs aren't too good now from racing, but this product had made life so much more comfortable for him. I also give it to my 10 yr old cob who had problems in 3 legs, and it has also really helped him. I highly recommend it!
Premier Flex Plus the best product I have ever used and really does work! I put my mare on this product and after a week could see the difference, she is now bright and playful ..... she walks with a bouncy stride and is full of energy. I would certainly recommend.
Just to let you know, I now have 4 other people on my yard using your products!!! I can't tell you how pleased I am with them and people are seeing the results. Denise (Deakin) is so pleased with the Premier Flex Plus and her old mare is moving amazingly - Denise didn't think she would see her trotting up the field to her again let alone cantering round with the herd as she is with her mane and tail flowing!!!!
