Optimizing the Equine Athlete's Performance - A Nutritional Perspective
An athletic horse brings to mind one with speed, control, endurance, and the ability focus, who is in top shape, muscular, and healthy, where every cell in his body works together to bring about perfect form.
He may perform before crowds or just between the two of you as you ride the trail, practice in the arena, or work on the farm.
Whatever purpose you've given him, he relies on you to give him the best food, sufficient rest, and the care he needs to be your devoted partner.
The more work we ask of our horses, the more nutrients they need to do the job, and recover so they're fit enough to do it again and again.
Join Dr. Juliet Getty for 2 hours of discovering just how nutrients work in the athlete's body and how the diet can help your horse work and perform at his best.
