Summer is here! With rising temperatures our horses produce a greater amount of sweat and therefore may lose critical nutrients. Exercise generates a great deal of heat that must either be dissipated from the body or stored. The dissipation of heat is very important, because if a large amount of heat is stored, body temperature will rise to dangerous levels. Do you know how much water and nutrients your horse loses during exercise in warm weather conditions? Find out here.
