While the winter months have long since passed, you may still be having trouble getting your horses in shape. Long bouts of inactivity can have a major effect on horses as their bodies protest against sudden and rigorous movement. That’s why it’s so important to take it slow when prepping your animals for spring and summer events. Not only do you have to worry about sporadic exertional rhabdomyolysis in horses that have been exercised in excess of their current conditioning level, but you also need to keep an eye out for H2O and electrolyte loss during warm weather. Ohio-based Direct Action Company explains how critical it is for trainers and owners to provide their animals with equine muscle, joint, and bone care this time of year. In addition to easing each of the horses in your Kentucky, Florida, or Tennessee stables into training, DAC also encourages the use of horse joint supplements and other horse health products. By following a training schedule that gradually increases in difficulty and incorporating Total Performance Plus and Electro-Aid, you can better prepare your horses for upcoming events.
