How can I keep my horse hydrated when he is competing?

   

It is important that a horse has free access to water at all times, with many competition horses arriving at an event already in a mild state of fluid and electrolyte depletion from the muscular work of travelling.

Intensive exercise can cause many horses to sweat substantially which can lead to water and electrolyte deficiencies that can result in fatigue, decreased performance, dehydration, muscle cramping and other problems.

Many horses will benefit from additional electrolyte supplementation from Re-Hydrate which will help to maintain fluid and electrolyte balance. Offering a small feed with lots of water added to it will help increase water intake for horses that can be reluctant to drink at competitions.
