PCV and plasma biochemistry in relation to fitness of horses competing in endurance rides






Pferdeheilkunde 12(4): 506-509

PCV and plasma biochemistry in relation to fitness of horses competing in endurance rides

37 horses competing in 45-80 km endurance rides were investigated. Assessment of fitness was performed in all horses according to the official FEI (Federation Equestre International) rules for endurance rides (1986) before, during and at the end of rides. Only horses having passed successfully through the veterinary inspections were qualified (their average speed was 14.9+or-2.7 km/h).
