Product Description


guarantee.jpg    .




For horses with Navicular, Calcium Deposits(ringbone/sidebone also), Fractures, OCD, Fusing Joints here are the typical unsuccessful remedial actions:

  • INJECTIONS - These may reduce inflammation & sensation of pain, but the bone conditions are still likely deteriorating beneath the surface.
  • CORRECTIVE SHOEING - This will remove pressure on the bone, hopefully making the horse more comfortable until the problem outgrows the corrective action.
  • BUTE - This will reduce the inflammation and improve sensitivity, however continued bute use actually reduces the bones mineral density.  (i.e. it will actually make the bone weaker and more susceptible to injury).
  • POSTERIOR DIGITAL NEURECTOMY - Often referred to as "nerving" the horse, this will again remove the sensation of pain, however in the meantime the bone will continue to deteriorate and the nerves will regenerate, rendering the horse lame again within 12-24 months under most circumstances.
  • JOINT SUPPLEMENTS - Joint supplements are great (for horses that have joint problems).  However, if you're dealing with a horse with one of the above diagnosis', you unfortunately have a horse with a bone problem, which requires feeding a Bone Supplement.  A joint supplement can be a great complement to a bone supplement, but don't be fooled into thinking they're the same thing.

As you can see, ultimately these temporary remedial actions leave the door open for relapses and further injury since the bone itself is in the same condition as when you started caring for the problem or worse.  Within 3-6 weeks of starting EQUI-BONE most horses that are exhibiting symptoms begin improving as a result of this improved mineralization. 

TLC's EQUI-BONE formula is different because it was designed to target the source of the problem, a dietary imbalance which compromises the integrity of the bone and ultimately allows conditions such as navicular, calcium deposits & fractures to develop.   TLC's EQUI-BONE is comprised of a proprietary mineral blend that specifically focuses on the bone remodeling process.  Where other products on the market put the cart before the horse and simply attempt to make the horse more comfortable, we're getting real results IN THE BONE.  You can continue spending hundreds of dollars a month on corrective shoes, injections and other misplaced remedial actions OR you can feed TLC's EQUI-BONE formula and start improving the bone mineralization process today.  A quick search for EQUI-BONE on our facebook page or google will yield you many real world stories of people who have used our product successfully in very dramatic situations.  So you don't have to take our word for it. 

FOR HORSES WITH COMBINATION BONE & JOINT PROBLEMS:  A product like FLEX-FUEL which contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Glucosamine and MSM can be a great complement to EQUI-BONE if joint stiffness symptoms are present along with your bone issue.  To approach a bone issue combined with arthritis complications most effectively, combine 1 scoop of each EQUI-BONE & FLEX-FUEL twice daily.


Our EQUI-BONE pellet formula includes 1,750mg of each Glucosamine and MSM per scoop to help support horses that have cartilage complications in addition to bone complications (the powder does not).  The EQUI-BONE pellets can be added to feed without any mixing, whereas water may need to be added to the powder and mixed in with the grain to make an oatmeal-like paste.  Because of this, pellets are recommended for picky eaters.

For horses with calcium deposits/bone spurs (including ringbone and side bone) it is important to eliminate synthetic Vitamin D3 and outside sources of calcium from the diet. To do this TLC Animal Nutrition, Inc. suggests replacing commercial grains and any supplements containing significant amounts of these ingredients with our own feed ration found at the bottom of the page under "Feeding Suggestions".

For horses with other injuries like navicular or fractures there is more versatility to give other supplements along with Equi-Bone, however ideally switching over to the suggested feeding program would be ideal, but not typically 100% necessary.

  1. Equi-Bone great product

    Posted by Judy R. Young on 23rd Jul 2014

    I had a horse that OCD in his stifle. He would short step about every 10 steps in a slow trot/ Friend of mine said for me to try Equi-Bone I put him on it and 5 weeks he didn't short step anymore. This is really a good product and I have another horse on it now that has Navicular cyst she is improving will let you know the out come on her later.

  2. navicular 7/15/2014

    Posted by DIANA from Knoxville, TN on 15th Jul 2014

    I have a fabulous 10 y old PSG level oldenburg mare. We did a pre-purchase exam and found out that she has navicular changes in the right front. Needless to say I was heartbroken. She was a little bit off on that R front. We injected her with tildren and she was very sound for about 4 months. And then she came up very lame. We injected her coffinbone, but she was still sore when turning sharply to the R. After some research, and couple of sleepless nights I came across Equi-Bone. Decided to give it a try after reading all evening the reviews. I was hopeful. I got to say, reading about other people stories helped me to make my decision. I also ordered Recovery EQ from Smartpack.
    Long story short, my horse was absolutely sound in 6 weeks, went to the show, got a qualifaying score. So happy!!! Thank You TLC Animal Nutrition for Equi-Bone! I will tell about that product to everyone!

  3. Navicular nightmare is seeing the light of day

    Posted by Tom Austerman - Serenity Golden Quarter Horses on 2nd Jul 2014

    We purchase an absolutely beautiful 15-3 hands golden palomino in August of 2012. A short time after the purchase we noticed a lameness issue in both front feet. The vet diagnosed the problem as a navicular issue. Because of his show and clinic "DEMO" potential (I do natural horsemanship clinics), we decided to try to save him. We immediately began a care plan that includes our farrier rebuilding his heels, your Equi Bone supplement and Acti-Flex 4000. We have been rewarded with a noticeable improvement. A recent Vet check finds him "sound as a dollar" (that's good because his name is Serenitys Dollar). He is showing no sign of lameness. I can't say for sure which part of the plan contributed most to Dollar's recovery but I can say we plan to keep him on Equi bone at the maintenance level for as long as we have him. He is an important part of our family who deserves the very best.
