Whether you are competing in Eventing, Racing, Dressage or Show Jumping or simply exercising your horse on a hot day Electrolytes with MSM and Vitamins are a vital piece of equine kit; crucial for your horse’s ‘recovery’ following hard work.
When travelling, competing, in hot and humid environments or when stressed, your horse sweats! This action of sweating is actually beneficial to our horses as it allows them to reduce their body temperature as the sweat is absorbed by the atmosphere, cooling the body. However equine sweat is isotonic which means their sweat contains salts, known as minerals, including sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium and chloride. Losses of these minerals can cause tiredness, muscle stiffness, dehydration and in severe cases equine colic.
When exercising intensely a horse can lose up to 15 litres of sweat per day so it is clear to see with such considerable losses it is vital to replenish our equines depleted stores of both water and lost body salts.
Electrolytes with MSM and Vitamins can be added to the feed of our horses after strenuous exercise or a stressful environment. This product brought to you to you by Horse Supplements Direct was designed by Scientific Nutritional Products in order to optimise natural recovery time after hard work. Electrolytes with MSM and Vitamins replaces vital body fluids lost through sweating correcting the balance of electrolytes and water within the body. The useful addition of MSM and extra vitamins gives your horse or pony the extra boost he needs by ensuring the right nutrients are available.
Remember when feeding electrolytes it is absolutely imperative to always provide ample fresh water for your equine in accompaniment to the supplement.
This easy to use and very palatable powder can simply be mixed in with feed.

What Pegasus think:
Supplements are often a hard thing to review especially electrolytes. Over the years we have used many different brands after competition work or long journeys to shows and you do find some which horse just don’t like. However, these were tested on a couple of horses and they did not seem to notice them at all in their feed.
Did we notice a difference in the recovery ? Well that is hard to judge as they are designed to rebalance the normal levels within the body so we will have to rely on scientific reports that tell us that electrolytes should be used after hard work or stressful conditions. Seeing that this product contains Electrolytes with MSM and Vitamins all at a very affordable price and is palatable by the horses it was tested on and the horses seemed to be their normal selves showing no signs of fatigue, I would be happy to recommend it to others
