Dressage is an extremely difficult discipline for horses. They need a high plane of nutrition that supplies a constant form of controllable, slow release energy that enables the horse to perform its work but does not adversely affect the temperament.
- Chromium yeast supplementation reduces insulin production and lowers blood glucose resulting in a calmer more disciplined horse and thereby an improved performance.
- Garlic is an effective anti-microbial plant acting on bacteria, viruses and alimentary parasites. It lowers blood pressure and improves cardio-vascular health and stimulates cell growth.
- Cayenne benefits circulation and is effective in the treatment of muscular pain. It also stimulates the action of other herbs.
- Any supplementation, including the use of calming herbs, should be consistent with guidelines for mature horses.
