My gelding has been here for two months from the Netherlands. It goes without saying, this Florida heat is quite the change for him. What’s everyone’s thoughts on electrolyte supplements? I’ve always felt like supplements in general can sometimes do more harm than good when given in excess.
With that said, this heat is unbearable here in Orlando and only getting worse. I feel like his energy levels have been much lower during our rides and he drinks water like there’s no tomorrow. Does anyone feel like they’ve had good results with the electrolytes? If so, which ones? I’m also wondering if putting him on some might give him the runs or tummy trouble. I don’t want to stir up any issues unnecessarily. He’s a young healthy 5 year old otherwise.
