Horse supplements are essential for replacing lost electrolytes
Horse supplements provide essential nutrients for healthy and fit horses. The type of horse supplies required will depend on the type of horse you own and whether the horse is for racing or for riding or kept as a pet. Horse supplements will also depend on the age, current weight, activity level and general health and fitness levels. Horses require the right balance of proteins, grains, water intake, hay and horse supplements. There are hundreds of different horse supplements and feed types available therefore advice and guidance from experts can save you time and effort in tracking down the correct horse supplements for your horse. Horse supplements could be in the form of natural animal feeds, gold label horse supplements, baileys, super salvitax, dengie, Dodson and Horrell, global herbs, Net tex, spillers, equine health horse supplements and many more. Horse supplements can be in liquid or oil or pellet form.
Electrolyte horse supplements are minerals such as sodium, potassium (available in hay), chloride, magnesium, calcium and sulphur. These horse supplements are generally for horses that are hard working or subjected to regular strenuous exercise such as racing or perform in endurance shows and events. The horse supplements help horses perform at its optimum levels and build stamina to minimise suffering of strain during exercises. Most horse owners prefer to add horse supplements to the feed rather than directly in water as horses may not have a high enough water intake to make the horse supplements effective. Also horse supplements in water may affect the taste and may not drink as much of the water as it needs. Horses that have a balanced diet of high quality hay and feed and does work but does not strain or sweat, small amounts of horse supplements can be introduced such as a salt lick that can be used freely by the horse. Vital minerals or electrolytes are lost through sweat therefore if your horse exercises frequently or if temperatures are high, horse supplements must be offered to make up for the lost electrolytes.
