When your horse works or exercises it sweats. This is a horse’s natural cooling down mechanism. A horse sweats even more when it is not fully conditioned or fit, in hot or humid weather or when it is nervous, excited or agitated. A horse can lose 15 litres of sweat in one hour in hot, humid conditions. The type and duration of exercise will also determine the level of sweating. Excessive sweat loss causes an electrolyte imbalance which leads to premature muscle fatigue, reduced stamina, muscle cramps and poor recovery after exercise if not corrected.
