Three experiments were conducted to evaluate if feeding hay with and without grain affects glycemic response and hematological responses in Thoroughbred horses at rest and during a simulated competition exercise.
The purpose of this exercise trial was to determine the effects of four diets varying in starch and fat content on blood glucose and insulin concentrations as well as on indicators of exercise-induced muscle strain and damage in horses with polysaccharide storage myopathy.
To explore the skeletal adaptations involved in early race training, bone density and morphometry were tracked in 15 Thoroughbred yearlings as they began training at a facility where turnout paddocks were available.
This study was performed to determine if the glucose, insulin, and cortisol responses to isocaloric diets varying in fat and NSC availability differ in fit vs. unfit Thoroughbreds with recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis.
This study was designed to determine the effects of fat adaptation on carbohydrate and fat oxidation in conditioned horses during low-intensity exercise.
This study was conducted to quantify whether body condition was related to resting insulin, glucose, and triglycerides.
This study was designed to determine the effects of three rations on plasma creatine kinase activity and lactate concentration in Thoroughbred horses with recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis.
A study to evaluate the long-term effects of feeding a fat supplemented diet during medium intensity aerobic training was conducted over seven months using 12 two-year-old Thoroughbreds.
A research study was completed to evaluate whether B-vitamin supplementation before exercise can affect performance.
