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


, : PCV and plasma biochemistry in relation to fitness of horses competing in endurance rides. Pferdeheilkunde 12(4): 506-509

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).

Plasma biochemical values were measured in 14 horses, before a 160 km endurance ride, immediately after 85 km, immediately after 160 km, after 30 min recovery period and the day after the ride. For statistical analysis, a group of 7 horses that co...
