Re: [RC] electrolytes - Truman Prevatt

More than one time at the "new rider meeting" we hold at SERA rides we have come across this. Electrolytes is something we talk about - usually with the head vet the one talking about these things and yes bicarbs are not reccomended for endurance horses. More than once I've given a rider some of mine to get them through the next day.

Subject: [RC] e-lyte question

Sodium chloride, postssium chloride, magnesium sulfate, calcium lactate, destrose,

sodium bicarbonate,

silicon dioxide, artificial apple flavor, artifical color.
Is this ok, for my Ld in June(likely to be hot and humid in Ga.)? or
should I swtich to Angies recipe :} ?Or is it ok for Ld rides ,or will I
need a more Endurance tuned recipe?

I'm sure (I hope!) Heidi or SueG or one of the other vets will jump in here, but--sodium bicarb is not recommended for endurance horses. I would switch to Angie's recipe.
