Important Note:

Always provide free-choice, clean water to horses receiving electrolyte supplementation. Do not offer electrolytes to a horse that cannot or is unwilling to drink without first consulting a veterinarian.

Serving instructions:

60cc tube = 1 oz of Summer Games Electrolyte

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.

Below is a chart that will help you to estimate the level of exercise your horse is doing. Always take temperature and humidity levels into consideration when supplementing with an electrolyte. Horses will sweat more in hot, humid climates. When it is very dry or cold, sweat may evaporate quickly and be less noticeable.

Guidelines for determining workload level

Light Work:

Visible Sweat (up to 5 liters sweat loss)

For example: dressage, western and English pleasure, trail horses, equitation, etc.

Moderate Work:

Dripping Sweat (5-10 liters sweat loss)

For example: jumping horses, racehorses, barrel racing, cutting, roping, etc.

Heavy Work:

Dripping Sweat for Extended Periods (more than 10 liters sweat loss)

For example: upper level three-day event, western performance horses, polo ponies

Options for determining sweat loss

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.

Storage and shelf life:

Store Summer Games Plus in a cool, dry place. Protect from freezing and extreme heat. Shelf life is 24 months from date of manufacture when stored under suitable conditions.
