Sugar and Horses

Posted on: February 5th, 2014 by legsaver 13 Comments

Many people give their horses treats in the form of candy (mints) or other sugars. This is very harmful for performance horses [race horses, dressage, grand prix jumpers, barrel racers and all other performance horses]. Sugar is very harmful to horses (and humans) on many levels.

1. It damages the digestion system of horses (and humans).

2. Kills brain cells.

3. Spikes the animal’s blood sugar—blood sugar levels become unmanageable.

4. Interferes with the delicately-balanced hormonal and reproductive systems in both mares and stallions. These hormonal interferences reduce the quality of the offspring.

Its long-term consumption causes major health and performance issues for horses. Remove all sugar from your horse’s diet and the results will be notable [increased stamina and performance, improved temperament, higher resistance to disease, faster recovery from injury].

In our experience, eliminating this from a horse’s diet has dramatically improved the above-noted compromises to a horse’s health, stamina and reproductive capacities.

Remember: Sugar has never been in the horse’s natural diet—ever. Their digestion system simply cannot handle it without causing a complexity of health problems. Did you know that horses do not have a gallbladder? This would certainly impair their ability to successfully assimilate sugar.

The harmful effects on human beings are well documented in medical and scientific studies. While there are very few studies for horses on this topic, logic should certainly caution us on the potential compromises of sugar to your horse’s health.
