Many pleasure horse owners think that it's just top competition horses that need electrolytes. Electrolytes are not ordinarily included in standard feeds, and there are a number of occasions when you should consider supplementing your horse's diet with a suitable electrolyte product.
Why feed electrolytes
The purpose of electrolytes is to replace salts and other minerals that the horse loses through excess sweating. Such deficiencies can cause serious health problems for your horse including lethargy, loss of condition and poor coordination in his movement; that's why it's so important to supplement him.
