CARING FOR YOUR HORSES JOINTS
Your horse’s joints are subject to wear and tear, and as your horse ages, the synovial fluid that lubricates the joints reduces and the articular cartilage.
These joints are held together by the joint capsule, which has a thin inner lining called the synovial membrane, which produces the synovial fluid to lubricate the joint.
The ends of the bones are covered by a smooth layer of articular cartilage, which is composed of specialised cells called Chondrocytes that produce a large amount of extracellular matrix (ECM). ECM is composed of two major components: 60% collagen (type II) & 30% proteoglycan (aggrecan). Cartilage does not contain blood vessels. The chondrocytes (cartilage cells) are supplied by diffusion; therefore, cartilage grows and repairs more slowly.
The chondrocytes are responsible for the anabolic and catabolic balance of cartilage metabolism.
