Details

During exercise, a horse’s muscles need ATP (adenosine triphosphate), in order to contract and work. There are two processes in the horse’s body, which produce ATP from food:
1. Aerobic metabolism
2. Anaerobic metabolism

When the horse is working at a moderate pace (usually up to trotting speed in a fit endurance horse), the aerobic pathway produces ATP for muscle contraction from glycogen, glucose and fatty acids. It uses oxygen which has been carried to the site of action by the blood. Harmless by-products are produced, which are excreted as the horse sweats.

When the horse needs to expend more energy than this by, for example, climbing a hill or producing a burst of speed, anaerobic metabolism takes over. Anaerobic metabolism doesn’t need oxygen and produces energy very fast, but in small amounts.

The big disadvantage of the anaerobic pathway is the production of a by-product called lactic acid, which builds up in the muscle, causing the pH of the muscle to drop, producing fatigue and possibly contributing to the “tying up” syndrome.

When a certain level of lactic acid in the muscle is reached, the pathway shuts down. Then, the fast muscle action cannot be maintained.

Most of the time, the horse travels at speeds which can be fuelled by the aerobic pathway. If fit, the anaerobic pathway should only be used for short intervals. So fatigue in endurance horses is more likely to result from the glycogen stores running out than from lactic acid build up.

Eventually however, the horses heart rate increases, the rate of ATP utilization increases, and the “anaerobic threshold” is reached. This usually happens at about 140-150 beats per minute. At this stage, fatigue starts to set in.

There are several nutraceuticals which, by various mechansims, have been shown to help to delay the onset of the anaerobic threshold. These are: Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Cyanocobalamine (Vitamin B12) and Vitamin E. (All ingredients of Endurance mix.)
