And to give it some perspective, its happened twice out of 10 LD rides.  =
Thinking of what may have been similar in those rides - they were both in=

You might want to consider Mg as the problem.  I believe there was an article in EN last year about low Mg levels in spring grass. If you are getting bloodwork done that might be another thing to consider.


You might consider simply supplementing with a big of additional Mg, it's cheap and that's easy to do.  There is a bit of a problem with just feeding more of a given mineral, though; they are competitive in absorption and utilization and 'overdosing' one mineral can cause deficiencies in another.  However, I think now that the electrolyte and feeding programs are adequately addressing Calcium, magnesium may be the next 'weak link'.
