Competitive advantage for performance horses

Whether you are involved in racing, showing, eventing, show jumping, dressage, endurance, horsemanship, driving, polo or pony club, Equine Breathing could help you to improve your horse's performance.

How Equine Breathing can help

  • de-stressing and calming the horse during preparation, travel and at the competition
  • literally warming up the muscles before performance
  • increased oxygen availability
  • maintaining aerobic respiration for longer
  • increased removal of lactic acid from muscle cells before and during performance
  • leading to reduced risk of injury (tired muscles) or tying up (too much lactic acid)
  • and increased suppleness and ability
  • maintaining effective nerve and brain functioning allowing better concentration, problem solving and response to the rider
  • facilitating rapid healing of competition or training injuries and of unsightly scars
  • increasing stamina and endurance
  • promoting correct muscle formation; healthy skin, coat and demeanour
  • increasing fitness and cutting down recovery time

Case study - international event horse

Mies Kloos, the owner of an international event horse decided to try Equine Breathing because she said, “although Miss Galena was in very good shape, there were still some problems that we never could solve.” These were ulcers and poor appetite, windsucking, irritability when groomed and a nose rash.

Mies was very pleased to report that Equine Breathing did improve these problems and that Miss Galena seemed fitter and happier. “After about 3 months the most astonishing result started showing itself: her eating improved…..”

Mies also said that her recovery time after a heavy training session was faster and also her heart rate went down more rapidly after a cross country.

“In Holland the horses heart rates are checked before and within 10 minutes after a cross country, so I was able to document this improvement.   Before I started Equine Breathing she had a heart rate of 72 to 75 beats per minutes 10 minutes after finishing a cross country. Now she had around 60 bpm.”
