    [RC] electrolyte before rides - Heather Saunders

    I know there is a TON of threads about electrolytes, but I can't seem to
    find one that mentions why it is recommended to electrolyte your horse
    hours and even the day before a competition.  Isn't the purpose of
    electrolyting to replenish lost elytes? so why administer before the loss
    of sweat? Can someone educate me on this? thanks!!
