What is the science behind
muscle building on a horse?
Topline, so elusive and very desirable. To understand how to develop topline, we need to understand muscle development. While a high-quality pasture or hay may be adequate to meet the nutrient requirement in an average idle horse, active, athletic horses under training have an increased demand for nutrients to support the elevated physiological functions and maintain/or gain muscle mass.
The optimal nutrition aligned with the intensity and duration of training increases muscle. So, we need to have a customised nutrition and feeding approach to match the horses training load and nature.
