    [RC] Preloading electrolytes - Kristene Smuts

    This is a different slant on the thread.
    I've just purchased a small bucket of lytes which is formulated for stomachs in an alkaline state - that is for endurance horses - so the formula is on the acidic side (can't find the brochure right now to give the breakdown so working from memory).  So, would I be doing any damage by pre-loading with this formula or would it be OK to start on Thursday for Saturday?
    I tried this formula during the ride this past Saturday and my boy drank like a star - I didn't pre-load with it though, I used my other lytes which is running out.
