So many factors contribute to a horse performing to its full potential under saddle: well-fitting tack, quality of training and riding, the horse’s attitude, healthy limbs and joints. When things are less than 100%, we look for answers…or just chalk it up to the horse being bad.
But how often do we consider the role digestion – and digestive health – play in the horse’s performance or attitude? Rarely is the horse’s digestive tract at the top of the checklist for enhancing equine performance, but all too often it is a major factor.
Achieve Top Equine Performance in the Digestive Tract First
Digestive Tract Effects on Equine Performance Ability
When a horse’s lifestyle supports healthy digestion, the impact on the horse’s comfort and ability to function also supports performance ability.
The ability to bend to the left or right can be affected by GI tract comfort and health.
Only with proper digestion can a horse absorb and convert its feed into energy.
Full extension is only possible when the entire GI tract of the horse is healthy.
Bacterial fermentation of fiber in the hindgut produces VFAs, which are a critical source of long-term energy.
The horse’s hind leg movement is affected by the state and comfort of the digestive system, the source of impulsion for jumping and galloping as well as collection and extension.
