After a gentler time over the Christmas period many equestrians are getting their horses fit and ready for the 2017 season. Whether your goals are to get your horse up to full fitness after a layoff period, or to achieve competition ambitions in your favourite discipline, now is the time to draw up a plan!
Preplanning helps everyone reach their goals and having a staggered process of increasing workload, and pressure, on your equine friend means that there is a lower risk of accidents or injuries to both parties, along with a higher chance of optimum success! So why not take some time to draw up a work plan for 2017? By being organised you can build duration, intensity and technical challenges alongside spreading out your lessons and competitions!
Remember that achieving optimum body condition and fitness means that your exercise and feeding programme must go hand in hand. Hard-working horses require the condition and the 'fuel in the tank' to perform. Offering a balanced diet is essential to every equine’s health and well-being alongside the combination of sufficient and correct exercise.
Pure Distilled MSM Supplement from Scientific Nutritional Products is a constituent of vitamins, co-enzymes and antioxidants, good health and peak fitness and ideal to be fed during the fittening process. Supplementing the diet with Pure Distilled MSM helps to maintain good health and peak equine fitness - ideal for times when more pressure is being applied, such as getting your horses fit!
The busy, hard working equine also requires a broad spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals, whether your goal is long hacks in the countryside or achieving your Dressage or Jumping goals, the same principle applies!
Vitamins and minerals play a multitude of roles within the body including supporting the immune system, bone and teeth structure, benefiting eyesight and assisting nerve and muscle functioning. Including a vitamin and mineral supplement in the diet such as Horse & Pony Multivitamin Supplement or Competition Horse Supplement offered by Scientific Nutritional Products can be beneficial to supply the vital nutrients in the diet!
