Summer Games Plus is unique. It contains a blend of ingredients that buffer excess gastric acid, coat the sensitive lining of the stomach, and replenish the electrolytes and trace minerals depleted when horses sweat. This dual-action formula helps to maintain healthy electrolyte levels and support normal stomach pH so horses perform better, recover faster, and remain healthier. 60cc (1 oz).
Instructions: Summer Games Plus can be used as a daily supplement. Because of its concentrated formula, it is easy to adjust the level of supplementation to meet your horse’s individual needs. The amount of supplementation will depend on the level of work and the intensity of the heat and humidity the horse is working in. 60cc tube = 1 oz of Summer Games Electrolyte. Administer no more than 2 tubes in a single offering.
|Level of work||Normal|
Light Work: Visible Sweat (up to 5 liters sweat loss): dressage, western and English pleasure, trail horses, equitation, etc.
Moderate Work: Dripping Sweat (5-10 liters sweat loss): jumping horses, racehorses, barrel racing, cutting, roping, etc.
Heavy Work: Dripping Sweat for Extended Periods (more than 10 liters sweat loss): upper level three-day event, western performance horses, polo ponies
Electrolyte requirements can be determined by measuring sweat loss. Fluid loss can be estimated by measuring body weight loss with this simple formula: 1 kg (2.2 lb) body weight loss = 0.9 liters (approx. 1 quart) body water loss, so an 11-lb body weight loss = approximately 5 liters sweat loss (light work) = 2 oz per day of Summer Games Plus. Weighing your horse before and after a work session can also give you some idea of how much weight or fluid loss has occurred.
