Possible colic and what to do???

Lynda Thompson
We did the third day of the Shellbourne XP ride.  The ride was really
flat.  1 mile from the finish my horse kept trying to lay down so I had
the vet look at him and he said possible gas pains or maybe an impaction.
He checked him for dehydration but he was fine.  His potassium and glucose
were low so we gave him some carbo-mixture.  He also had a shot of
banamine.  My question is what could have caused this to happen and what
can I do to prevent it in the future.  My horse is 12 years old and never
had anything like this in his life.  Has anyone used Carbocharge and would
it help to keep his glucose up?  I did not override my horse--we were 2
nd. to last.  Our ride time would have been 8 hours but no completion
because he had to be treated.  If anyone has any suggestions that might
help I would really appreciate it.  Thanks..        Lynda
