[RC] Calcium issues at a ride - my elyte chart - Dream Weaver

http://enduranceridestuff.com/blog/electrolytes/ This chart has the most common brands of elytes that endurance riders use.

Chrystal - the conditions and what your horse ate at the ride may have a big role in what happened. What were the temps and humidity, what kind of trail was it, how fast did you go (overall mph, ride time, or in relation to others) and what did your horse eat prior to and during the ride? It'd probably be good to know if your horse had competed in those conditions at that speed before and what kind of conditioning level she is at (does she have a thick winter coat?). I agree with you that you have to be careful about just adding a supplement if there is something else that you might want to look at in relation to the overall picture. Did the vets run bloodwork?
