The Sport Horse Research Foundation is a public charity that seeks to “to advance, and direct scientific research and education to enhance the health, athletic potential, and career longevity of sport horses,” according to their website: https://www.thesporthorseresearchfoundation.org/about-us/ The Foundation was established and is run by veterinarians and researchers who serve as FEI and Team vets, who ride and compete themselves, and who are deeply interested in deepening our knowledge about the health, wellbeing, and career longevity of elite sport horses.
Check out their latest work on equine osteoarthritis in the neck, a radiographic survey of show jumpers, and the potential benefits of pre-cooling horses before exercise. The Foundation has laid out an ambitious research agenda, including questions about the effect of competition stabling on stress levels, how variation in time spent training vs. in the paddock produces different outcomes, and a host of other important enquiries. Fair warning, though: you can easily fall down the rabbit hole once you start clicking! There is a wealth of fascinating information available, with more to come as the work proceeds.
Elevate® Maintenance Powder
Exercise-induced muscle damage that results in sore, stiff muscles and poor performance is a common problem in athletic horses. Vitamin E plays an important role in preserving optimal muscle function by interrupting the production of harmful free radicals that can damage critical tissues. When vitamin E levels in muscle tissue are inadequate, the risk of exercise-induced muscle damage is increased.
Elevate® Maintenance Powder supplies the natural vitamin E your horse needs to neutralize damaging free radicals and support peak performance. Keep your horse at the top of his game with Elevate natural vitamin E.
The horse that matters to you matters to us®.
