[RC] [RC] EnduraMax vs. Summer Games Electrolytes - Rides 2 Far

I think "Summer Games" were developed for race horses, eventing >
horses, > etc. - those that do a lot of anerobic exercise. EnduraMax was
forumlated for endurance exercise.

I went to a seminar at UT a long time ago and they had a list of the
different athletic events and whether the horse became acidic or
alkaline. As I recall, endurance horses became alkaline, and practically
everyone else became acidic (3 day eventing, racing, harness racing).
That's why it irritates me when the catalogs put "to replace electrolytes
lost in the equine athlete". Which ones?  I figure if they don't know
enough to tell me, they don't know enough to be in charge of my horse's
life. Wouldn't treating an alkaline horse with electrolytes geared
towards an acidic one be like trying to put out a fire with gasoline?
