Why Electrolytes Are So Important…

ElectrolytesDid you know that horses can lose up to 10L of sweat during two hours of work? That is a lot of fluid!

Did you also know that a horse’s system cannot retain water without electrolytes? This means that if a horse is not replacing body salts in sufficient quantities though his normal diet, supplementing with electrolytes is important to avoid compromising performance and health.

It is also worth remembering that horses rely on sweating to control their body temperature during exercise and as considerable fluid can be lost a correct level of rehydration is key.

It is recommended that electrolytes are fed during periods of prolonged exercise, as well as during very hot weather. They can be added to water to make a fast absorbing isotonic fluid, or fed in the feed.
